This meeting was kicked off by our beautiful elegant lady Paradee. Though it was also her last TM meeting in Shanghai, Paradee did a great job as TME and left us a professional and warm impression. To give her a surprise, we prepared a personalized gift – a notebook with our signatures and wishes to her. We hoped she would enjoy her life in Thailand.

She also linked back to her own story about her little baby being put lots of milk powder in her face by her sister. Sherry was scared and angry at sister at first. But later on she found out that sister was just worried that the baby was hungry. Great story telling and aroused some deep thinking.

But when Terry was sentenced due to corruption, Steven could not believe it. He went to the court hearing but the guard did not let him in. Through the hole in the wall, he saw his handsome, rich best friend was no longer have that stunning look but crying and regret. Steven wanna tell us your desire of power and money could be out of control,please learn to cherish your family and friends.
