Tsim Sha Tsui Waterfront

What can you see at Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront? You would probably be explored to the unique skyline created by the cluster of buildings around the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront. Tsim Sah Tsui was once the site of old Hong Kong - Guangzhou train station, but now all that's left is the old brick Clock Tower. The three structures of the Clock Tower, the curvaceous Cultural Center, and the domed Space Museum make a beautiful public space. This is a well-known lovers spot.
A stroll at Christmas and Chinese New Year is a particular treat, when the buildings adorn their walls with festive lights. If time permits, catch a 360 degree Omnimax movie at the domed Space Museum for the some galactic excitement.

Take Star Ferry from Central to Tsim Sha Tsui, or MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui.

Another Bullshit of Private Message

Dear Friend,

Let me start by introducing myself. I am Mr.Marvin K.T Cheung Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer of the Hang Seng Bank Ltd. I have a Secured business suggestion for you.

Before the U.S and Iraqi war our client Col. Hosam Hassan who was with the Iraqi forces and also business man made a numbered fixed deposit for 18 calendar months,with a value of Thirty million United State Dollars ($30,000,000.00) only in my branch. Upon maturity several notices was sent to him, even during the war early this year. Again after the war another notification was sent and still no response came from him. We later find out that Col. Hosam Hassan along with his wife and only daughter had been killed during the war in a bomb blast that hit their home.What bothers me most is that according to the laws of my country at the expiration 4 years the funds will revert to the ownership of the Hong Kong Government if nobody applies to claim the funds.

Against this backdrop, my suggestion to you is that I will like you as a foreigner to stand as the next of kin to Col. Hosam Hassan so that you will be able to receive his funds. Please endeavor to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue.Once the funds have been transferred to your nominated bank account we shall share in the ratio of 60% for me,40% for you.

Should you be interested please send the information?s below,

1. Full names and Age..............
2. Private phone number...............

11 Rules by Bill Gates

Rule 1 : Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won't be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.

Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
