(香港,5月19日) 為響應靚仔廚神傑米·奧利佛(Jamie Oliver) 發起的《為食起革命》全球飲食關注活動,一向熱愛烹飪及廚藝了得的汪詩詩聯同妹妹圓圓遂鼓勵母親把最拿手的家傳上海雲吞菜譜傳授給全世界愛吃人士,並與Jamie Oliver 分享此上海傳統家庭菜式。為準備此活動,三人更於昨天親身到街市買材料,出錢又出力。

二人聯同表姊妹齊齊向汪母學習包上海雲吞的秘技,實踐 Jamie Oliver 「烹飪技巧是一代傳一代」的信念。《為食起革命》是希望更多人走進廚房,親自煮食。這樣不但可以控制食物來源,更能令家人食得更健康,活得更快樂。詩詩一 向最關注家人的健康,因此對是次活動的支持不遺餘力。

詩詩在訪問期間透露:「上海雲吞是每個上海媽媽必懂的菜餚,但每個家庭也有自己的秘技。媽媽的秘密就是加入了鮮蝦,而且她會在煮雲吞的時候,不厭其 煩地重複三次在雲吞加熱浮起後,加入凍水再煮的秘技,令雲吞更爽口好吃,我們家中上下各人也十分喜歡呢! Donnie更讚不絕口,現在全世界也知道我們一家是上海雲吞的超級粉絲了。」另外,詩詩及圓圓姊妹自小就有良好的飲食教育,因為汪媽從不嬌縱她們,要她 們嘗試不同食物,就算不喜歡吃的也會軟硬兼施地要她們嘗試。

甄子丹於活動完結前突然出現,給太太一個驚喜。子丹試味讚不絕口,驚覺家人廚藝愈來愈進步。

早前子丹為Jamie Oliver《為食起革命》拍攝了一齣宣傳短片,在訪問中大讚詩詩及岳母的廚藝。這段短片在華爾街日報、路透社等外國媒體也有介紹,連Jamie Oliver 也希望親身多謝子丹的支持。

419262_10150663853716684_508331683_9290508_2031220185_n.jpgJust when you thought, the retirement of Yau Ming will create a problem for NBA in Asia since less people will tune in, there goes Lin and takes it by the scruff of its neck again! Due to the huge injury list of the Knicks, he was able to get his chance and he took it with both hands and even more. He averaged around 27 points a game for his first 6 games and led the Knicks to a long winning streak. Something even the fans at Madison Square Garden could not expect to see. He was making slick moves and taking on the best players with minimal fuss and maximum precision. His popularity in Asia skyrocketed from this, he was making front covers of almost every newspaper in Asian cities. Over here in Hong Kong, people started watch more New York games and became indulged in the NBA again. In the domain name, field, someone registered linsanity.asia and started selling his merchandise online and it is a start of something big for the NBA and for Asia indeed.

Prayers for the people of ChristChurch

Prime Minister John Key has declared a state of emergency after the deadly earthquake that hit the city of Christchurch, killing around 75 people of which 55 have been identified. The toll from Tuesday's quake is expected to climb significantly as more bodies are found in the rubble. Video footage from the scenes have been very emotional indeed with people's faces being covered in blood and dust and other weeping over the loss of lives and property damage. The city has been devastated and there was a night without any electricity and water. It will take a while for the city to recover but what could be seen on television was incredible. People were putting their own lives at risk to go and help others who were trapped in the buildings. The Asian spirit will come through and Christchurch will come through this horrible event very soon. God bless the people there and our thoughts and prayers for people who have lost their loved ones.

As reported by CBS Sports, NBA superstar Steve Nash has ended his 15-year endorsement relationship with Nike, signing with Luyou.  The 2-time MVP joins many other NBA players who have recently signed endorsement contracts with Chinese shoe makers.  Kevin Garnett with ANTA, Baron Davis with Li-Ning, and recently, Jason Kidd and Ron Artest were scooped up by Peak.

With the evident globalization of the NBA, so too, are their players who are realizing that the local market in North America may just as well be tapped out.  It is apparent that all business entities as well as in sport need to realize the riches that await in China and Asia.

2014 marks the year that China is projected to overtake Japan as the 2nd largest consumer economy.  Years ago, the NBA, assisted by Yao Ming has transcended basketball into China well-knowing that this day will come and now the NBA brand, Steve Nash and Co. are staying ahead of the curve and reaping the benefits of that vision with their Chinese shoe contracts.

So, the Chinese shoe-makers have made their move and now let's see how and when the North American giants such as Nike, Adidas, and Reebok respond.  If the automotive industry has taught a lesson, it's that the local giants shouldn't take foreign brand invasion lightly.  Yes, Nike is a household name and nobody's every heard of Li-Ning, but way back when, Toyota probably sounded as foreign as Li-Ning, and who's laughing now?

Valiant effort by the Asians

Not so long ago, managers would look at Asian teams in the World cup and think it was a sure 3 points. Even in 2002, when South Korea reached the semi-finals, people thought it was only because of the fact the World Cup was staged there. Then Saudi Arabia were raped 8-0 by the Germans and people thought, yes same old story. It was considered a huge shock when an Asian team won and it would make the back and front pages of newspapers. Now times have changed dramatically. Teams have to dig deep and have some luck to beat the Asians. South Korea were unlucky not to get past Uruguay who had a wonder goal to thank and the Japanese were defeated on penalties. Australia, New Zealand were unlucky not to make it after some battling performances. North Korea even scored against Brazil.

Now Asians are going to be taken seriously in sports competitions. They have already made tremendous strides to become a future economic powerhouse, they have creativity here, the best products are made here in Asia, we have the largest number of online users. Now in sports events, we are making our mark too. Asia is truly becoming the main region.
