In the show, martial arts elites from six major sects of martial arts in
Foshan performed their own special martial arts, and 5,000 martial
arts-enthusiasts from different regions and different ages performed the Wing
Chun show together, including 200 people from SHKP, 80-year-old men, 6
year-old children and Mr. Jeff Elgin, the Master Ye Zhun's apprentice from
Washington, etc.

"Nowadays, 'Foshan martial arts' has become the most influential world-class
image of culture to represent the city of Foshan. Today we saw the
preservation of Lingnan culture in Foshan, in these 5,000 performers. And we
also appreciate the traditional culture and family culture of China, which has
already spread for thousand years on this land," Southern China General
Manager of Sun Hung Kai Development (China) Ltd., Echo Huang said during the
event. "In SHKP's opinions, every piece of land has its unique vitality; every
city has its own culture and charm. Today, we take our 'Building Homes with
Heart' concept to Foshan, on the 'National Fitness Day', hoping to attract
more people to join us, to become interested in Lingnan culture, and even to
promote the Lingnan culture. We respect the culture of Foshan, hoping to build
the new Foshan together with people of Foshan, to create an international
homeland along with traditional Lingnan Culture."

The project of the Oriental Bund developed by SHKP is located in Lanshi,
Foshan, and the first phase of the project will be available and have a grand
debut at the end of this year. Paying close attention to the city's
comprehensive development, the cultural heritage and potential mining, SHKP
will designate a seasoned project team from Hong Kong for the planning, design
and construction. It will take long-term construction up to 15 years to build
the Foshan Lanshi Project into a complex of "world-class shopping centers,
super five-star hotels, high quality Grade-A office spaces and residential
properties". This super-size integrated project will build together with SHKP
and the Foshan people. Echo Huang said: "With SHKP's rich experiences of large
integrated projects, we hope that we could build a proud landmark for Foshan,
and bring a more international living experience to Foshan people."

Foshan is one of birthplaces of China Southern martial arts. In recent years,
many outstanding films and TV shows with the theme of Wing Chun have been
produced and used the Wing Chun master Mr. Ye Wen as a prototype. All these
made Wing Chun famous worldwide and drew interest in Wing Chun culture, and
even in Lingnan culture.

"As one of the birthplaces of Lingnan culture, Foshan now is known as one of
the most successful areas of Lingnan Culture Conservation. With fast
industrial upgrading and urban transformation, nowadays protection and
inheritance of Lingnan culture get lots of concern from the community. In the
development and heritage, Foshan need to find the right footing," Mr. Deng
Chan Rong, the Vice-Secretary of Foshan, said of the activity. "We are very
pleased to see such enterprises with a global vision, like SHKP, to enter
Foshan. While respecting the local culture, they also bring in the world's
leading construction concepts. With its rich development experience, they can
work with us together to find the connotation of Foshan, and to create a new
international city of Foshan."
