GREEN QUOTE OF THE DAY

"Why are we being forced to choose between the economy and the environment? We tend to forget that without an environment we would not have an economy, as everything we consume and I mean everything comes from our environment."

~ Franke James (contemporary artist, photographer, writer)

GtB'5 Volunteer Report - JISU PK

GtB'5 Full Lunar Eclipse Finale: JISU PK

Around 630pm, I finally found Mako Live House. To be honest, it wasn't easy to find it at all. The narrow hutongs didn't help. But the atmosphere at the site cheered me up very soon once I arrived. I began helping move and assemble equipment with Shannon Bufton and others from the JISU PK team. We set-up near the bar. It was the first time I came to a bar, so I was pretty excited. Plus, the DJs were testing their equipment. I began to really look forward to the party later!

In the beginning, some environmental short videos were shown. They were very educational and triggered feelings of self-reflection. Around 9pm, the exciting JISU PK game finally began. A Zhu and some other folks came with professional cameras. People started to get excited, especially after learning of the chance to win NLGX shirts as prizes. A lot of people participated in the race, which had both men and women divisions. There was a little technical glitch in the beginning, however, it didn't affect the exciting atmosphere onsite. The room was filled with cheers, and the race started...

Meanwhile, some people were still working on a huge GtB banner, a handmade artistic paper piece. It was almost finished before the final race. Mia was in the Women's final round, competing with a foreign girl, but lost. In the men's division, Shannon Bufton from STC won the champion round, by a great margin.

Afterwards, there were wonderful performances, such as acrobatics/tricks,
B-BOX, etc., and even DJs. It was very, very cool!

I also participated in the JISU PK, but lost in the first round. I think I will have to exercise more. Cycling is a vital, green form of transportation. If you are reading this, I suggest you move around in a green way and do your part to contribute towards environmental protection.

六点半左右的时候,我才千辛万苦地找到了Mako Live House,说实话,真的很不容易找到,尤其是那种小胡同,不过我很快就融入氛围中,帮助Bufton一行人搬运器械以及后续的组装,场地是一个酒吧,我是第一次来到酒吧,所以很是激动。此外我看到了一些DJ的设备,是不是一会儿有party呢?万分期待ing。。。

一开始播放一些令人反省自我的环保短片,很有教育意义。而后,在九点左右的时候开始了令人期待已久的JISU PK比赛,A Zhu一行人也来到了这里,他们带了专业的照相设备,人们的心情都很激动,很多人报名参加了比赛,分成男女两组,另一个让大家兴奋的原因是胜利者有机会得到NLGX提供的衬衫,虽然一开始设备出了一些小小的故障,不过丝毫不影响人们的热情,四下传来了口哨声,就这样,比赛开始了。。。

比赛的同时,还有一些人正在为GtB做一个宣传的巨型立体手工海报。

激烈的角逐结束后,海报也差不多完成了,Mia和一个外国美女最终角逐却输掉了,STC的Shannon Bufton以绝对的压倒性优势夺得冠军,毋庸置疑的冠军。

最后还有精彩的表演,杂技,B-BOX等等,甚至是DJ,非常非常酷!
我也参加了JISU PK,不过第一局就输掉了,我想我还要更加努力的锻炼身体才可以,平时骑车绿色出行是非常重要的,当然,我也建议正在看这篇bio的你可以绿色出行,为保护地球贡献自己的一份力量。
