I was honored to be invited to the China Institute 2011 Gala (http://www.chinainstitute.org/support-us/special-events/annual-gala/) at the famous Cipriani 42 street by its trustee Sophia Sheng.  As a Chinese living in New York, the city with the most Chinese population in America, I am glad to have discovered New York’s oldest institute for this important culture. Sophia Sheng, a friend and a dedicated trustee invited me to an interesting dance performance and showed me this organization, which provides a comprehensive program in not only culture, art, language education but also corporate business seminars for young associates and executives.

Attending the 2011 China Institute Gala at the 42 street Cipriani gave me a look at the professional level of its dedicated members.  One thousand elite attandants came from different fields and countries. They filled the beautiful Cipriani restaurant to honor the two Blue Cloud winners: American business executive Virginia Kamsky and Chinese real estate billionaire Zhang Xin. 

Both Kamsky and Xin are incredibly accomplished entrepreneurs. Kamsky was credited for her work to bring and introduce western businessmen to China and Xin, is one of the self made female billionaires in the world. She is only in her 40s.  They have helped people to learn more about China through their businesses and achieved tremendous successes from it.  When I chatted with Xin and Kamsky, I found them very sociable, funny and talked about their families a lot.

The evening gala opened my eyes about the accomplishment by the elite Chinese. I am also glad to discover a place for people to learn about this important culture in New York.

The event was hosted by China Institute President Sara Judge McCalpin and distinguished attendants included Jewelry designer Anna Hu, Trustee Sophia Sheng, Jay Goffman, Chinese Ambassador Peng Keyu and Anchor Kaity Tong.

Dear Friend!
In less than 2 hours, Paradise Hunter will announce the winner after an almost 6 month long worldwide search.  I feel excited, almost relieved, very happy, a bit nervous and most of all, extremely thankful for this incredible journey! 
12 months ago, when I left NBC to start on my own, I have never thought I would end up on Life magazine site, the largest news sites in China, meeting with billionaires for business opportunities and having a life changing experience with an incredible group of Paradise Hunters!  10 years ago, when I came from a 10x10 room in China with broken English, no money, no family to a country I didn’t know anyone, no one believed I can one day host a show in English. But today, I became top 10 and the only non native English speaker finalist in a global TV host contest.  So DARE TO DREAM & ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU DON’T GIVE UP!
THANK YOU SO MUCH to my friends and everyone-even we haven’t met yet for voting for me, sharing my story and your encouraging messages! Without you, it’s impossible! You inspired me to work harder everyday.
Congratulations to my fellow 9 outstanding finalists who made it to the top out of nearly 700 candidates from 29 countries: Asha, Ben, “Bond Girl Wales”, Carolyn, Dorothy, Jabari, Jade, Joshua, Ryan!  I read your stories and you are so inspiring. Keep up the great work & stay in touch!
To one of the hardest working people I’ve met: Paradise Hunter President Dennis Kambeitz—thank you for this smart, amazing and inspiring opportunity!
For those who like to know about my learning through Paradise Hunter, please listen to ABC News Radio Friday 3/4 on my interview on how to create/find your dream job in a difficult economy.  Thanks to the talented ABC Anchor Karen!
I have learned so much and received so many amazing opportunities that I feel like I have won: success is truly a journey. Please stay in touch for lots of exciting news/updates!  BEST WISHES TO ALL MY FELLOW HUNTERS & FRIENDS!  谢谢 XIE XIE (Thanks in Chinese) to my family and friends in China who can’t read English =)

Help To Share An Inspiring Story

Please share this inspiring story and Xiangwei’s weight blog link on her personal experience with slim shots! Thank you!

Dear Friends,
I know all of you are so busy… Sorry to send you another email. My friend Li Jing who is a social media expert told me a secret how she got so many people to vote for her on youtube: Ask friends to help you. Each time you ask, you have 50% chance of getting help, so it’s quite high. I like that a lot.   I want to thank you for reading this stuff and help me spread the word… It’s going to be good for my waistline, good for Slim Shots, good for my soul because I love writing. So if you are reading my blog, you are giving me a big personal favor. I really thank you!
I know I am crazy… already said that… Some of you read my first blog on Slim Shots challenge and liked it a lot, this is blog #2. I will continue writing on this experience to help myself achieve the goal and help creating a social buzz for Slim Shots. You are helping me to jumpstart to get the initial readership and I hope I won’t bother you with this too much.    Again, if you could think of anyone that would benefit from reading this blog, please share the link somehow and I would really appreciate it. I have included some old pictures of mine in the blog and you might actually enjoy reading it.

I will write the blog a few times a week for about 8 weeks (hope to lose 10 lbs too), thanks for reading and sharing (using email, join us on facebook, twitter and share on your facebook page, etc.)

http://www.nuzcom.com/my-slim-shots-challenge-2-if-i-can-you-can-well   Have a great day!   Xiangwei http://twitter.com/#!/Slimshotsnow Slimshots page on Facebook

Fashion is how you tell the world about who you are without saying a word!
Li Jing on the importance of fashion. Growing up in a 10x10 room with mostly hand me down clothes, I love the freedom and choices you can make to show the world who you are!
