    Michelle in Hong Kong. Day 1

    News article in Chinese (with tiny photo of Michelle wearing a yellow T-shirt):

    hk.news.yahoo.com/030816/12/tmdi.html

    Brief translation:

    American figure skater Michelle Kwan kicked off Disney's promotion tour yesterday. Michelle was reading stories and playing with about 30 children in City Hall Library.

    Michelle, 5 times World Champion, told us her story reading experience: "I had to practice many times before hand, just like skating competitions". She likes being surrounded by all the children. The children praised Michelle's clear pronunciation. The children also think Michelle is very kind, gentle and beautiful.

    Michelle will attend "Welcome day" dinner in Wan Chai later tonight and watch the "HK the Bright Pearl Laser Show".


    Thanks luenatic!

    So do I, children. So do I.

    Thanks, Bynx.

    Two cute girls, RT. I wonder how you say "Winnie the Pooh" in Chinese?

    Thanks for the pictures.

    and there are 2 more.

    I wonder if the story telling was conducted in Chinese or English?

    rtureck,

    Michelle used Chinese. Someone translated a news story at MKF that quoted her as saying she practised as if it was a skating competition. The kids thought she did a good job.
