On Friday October 14, six GuyTais headed out to the Lingshan Grand Buddha near the town of Wuxi. The Buddha is 88 metres high and is one of the largest Buddha statues in China. It weighs over 700 tons. The site includes a "Five-signets" Palace and a Brahma Palace. The Brahma Palace is stunningly beautiful inside and includes a show. There is also a fountain display in the grounds of the site with the water playing on a revolving statue of a baby Buddha with haunting Tibet music. A truly stunning place and a great GuyTai day out!
On Tuesday, 13 September 2011, a five-guytai contingent headed south out of Shanghai to look for a bore. No, the car (as nice as it was, courtesy of a wife's job with a major automotive firm) was too small to fit in a sixth guytai; rather, we were in pursuit of a tidal bore. In certain places of the world-where there's a wide, deep, east- or west-facing bay shaped like a funnel to a narrow, shallow river-the incoming tide is concentrated into a wave which can be meters in height. And lo, near Shanghai, we have one of the top three tidal bores in the world-some say the very biggest.
The project I've spoken about earlier on Chomgming Island is well on the way and thus far I have received 3 computers of which 2 could be fixed. We still need more hardware for the school so if you or someone you know happen to have old computers, printers etc. please let me know. The kids will need at least 7 computers and my company will repair broken computers for free as well as destroying existing data on the hard drives for good at no cost.
We will also need people who are interested in helping with construction be it pouring concrete or applying paint. Please feel free to let us know and if you're not part of the Guy Tai group you can contact us through the "Become a Member" link, simply add information that you're interested in sponsoring hardware in the application form.
On Tuesday Mat 24 a group of us met at the Puxi and Pudong Ferry docks and set out for an exploratory cultural tour of the new “Cool Docks” area and the South Bund. We explored the Waterhouse Hotel that faced the new sandy beach next to the lovely blue Huangpu river and taste tested two of the restaurants in the Cool Docks complex – and Indian establishment and a burger place – both served good food. The roof bar of the Waterhouse hotel was not open but we did get a private tour of the place – definitely a bar to consider on a cool spring/summer (ha) night though I do think it might be pricey.
