    [SIZE=no]Hi! It's nice to be here!
    I have been in HTF for three days in 'Movies'. But this is the first time I am here in "After Hours Lounge".
    Tommy sent message to me asking for some information about SARS.So I am here to see what I can do here.
    As for SARS, I don't know how much you guys have known about it already.I will let you know what I have known about it.
    It first hit South China,especially HK and Guangdong Province.Later(two to three months later) it spread to Beijing. Now, Beijing is at the third place in the most dangerous-places list. Now shcools have to be closed. And people's normal life was thrown into confusion.
    The way SARS spread is through respiration,especially the occasions when you close to the patients or potential patients.The reason for the trepidation is the high rate of chances being infected and the long delitescence without any symptom,about two days to twenty days. If the virus comes to work, it will apparently company with fever, dry cough.
    Anyway, we still can do come precautions. Keep air ventilating in your room.Wash your hands often.Keep from going to the crowded.Eat lots of fruits and vegetables.Have good rest.Drink more water.
    Well, hope it could over soon![/SIZE]

    Hi Yumi
    Glad to see you here and thanks for the information! SARS is a scary subject since so little is known about it.
    So do you have a home theater as such (DVD player etc) or are you just a big movie fan?
    Stay safe

    Hi Yumi, I have a bunch of uncles in Hong Kong and I was in Beijing 2 years ago, what a busy city! Actually, we were in Beijing about the same time the International Olympic Committee was there looking at Beijing for the 2008 summer olympics and the city was all decked out in lights and decorations. But anyway, I remember a bunch of the cities, people already walked around in facemasks just because of the dust. When we went to Xian, the city was very dusty and the pollution was high and people would be wearing facemasks. Neat place though, liked the walled city alot, too bad I missed the bike race on top of the wall!

    We first flew to Hong Kong to see my cousin's wedding, then my parents and I flew to Xian, from Xian to Beijing, and then to Guangzhou (My father is from a village outside that town) eventually by ferry back to Hong Kong. (Then my sister and I flew to Hawaii by way of Japan to do some hiking.

    Welcome to the HTF anyway!

    Jay

    Hiya Yumi and welcome to the forum, um is it pronounced 'Yoomi' or 'yummy'? [​IMG]
    I hope you enjoy this place, I've been a prisoner here for 3 years now, but I shouldn't complain, the food is good, the people nice, and if we behave we are allowed out in the courtyard for an hour...

    Hi Yumi, yup, I'm Chinese-American, an "ABC" though as I was born here. I'd love to go back, it was a great trip to see all my uncles and aunts (My father has like 11 brothers not all the same mom though) I liked Hong Kong except for loads of traffic, however, it is very cool city and lots of different sections and lots of shopping abounds. We stayed at an uncle's place in ShaTin.

    When we were in Beijing, we did the usual "tourist" stuff but I just liked watching the city, every city has it's own pulse and it's great to watch all the cyclists running around. I'm the resident bike nut here and I am not used to see a ton of cyclists out there going places and mingling with cars and stuff. "Giant" seemed to be the only brand that I recognize that also has a US presense over there although I did see a guy with a Gary Fisher jersey on a road bike when in Hong Kong.

    What are you studying in Beijing?

    Oh, and don't mind Steve C, he is usually locked in his little cage, but every now and then, we here in After Hours, have to let him out for some air and R&R. [​IMG] I think there is a U.N. policy on Steve C here!

    I like all kinds of movies Yumi, Peter Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' I liked a lot.

    I also like a lot of Hong Kong movies, especially John Woo's movies, my favorite of his films is 'Bullet in the Head', a great film and I can't wait till it gets released on dvd over here.

    My all-time favorite movie is an old classic epic, 'Ben-Hur' made back in 1959.

    My all-time favorite spider movie is 'Arachnophobia', 1990.(eeek!) [​IMG]

    welcome Yumi! or, I should say, "huan ying, huan ying" [​IMG]

    I must ashamedly confess, though, I've never been to China (although I've been to Hong Kong and Taiwan). I must "return to roots" some day.
