In the morning, I was awakened by a cock crowing, instead of the annoying buzzing sound of my alarm clock. The air that I breathed was fresh and clean, unpolluted. There were no skyscrapers, so I had a panoramic view of the sky. I could also enjoy delicious, organically grown fruits and vegetables.
The CityU team, comprising students Miao Yi (Department of Public and Social Administration), Lu Wei (Department of Economics and Finance) and Alice Chan (Division of Social Studies), was highly praised for its performance by the panel of judges, including Legislative Councillor Ms Audrey Eu, journalism scholar Professor Lee Siu Lam and novelist Ms Eunice Lam.
A total of nine tertiary institutions took part in the Putonghua debate contest this year. And in addition to the first runners up title, CityU also won a special prize: Best Cheering Team.
