Yao Ming, Zhou Xun bag Enjoyoung awards



Basketball player Yao Ming and actress Zhou Xun were conferred with awards for their outstanding contribution to fashion and charity events during the 2009 Enjoyoung ceremony, held Saturday in Beijing.

On receiving the award titled, “star of environmental protection and charity,” Zhou said she just did what she had to do and appealed for more awareness on the environment issue. Her environment-friendly non-woven gown evidently supported her call, “we can all protect the environment by small and simple initiatives too.”

Yao was awarded for representing and promoting the 2010 World Expo. When asked whether his dubbing in cartoon film Malan Flower meant he was preparing for the showbiz field, he said the only reason he took the job was because “the film was co-produced by Shanghai Special-care Foundation.”

Other celebrities participating in the ceremony, which also marked the official founding of Enjoyoung Media Group, included Korean actress Song Hye Kyo, Hong Kong directors Jingle Ma and Stanley Kwan, international designer Anna Sui and Hello Kitty designer Yamaguchi Yuko.

UNDP and Zhou Xun OUR PART Join Hands with P&G to promote green actions in China



17 July 2009, Shenzhen – All people have the ability to protect the environment by taking small steps towards sustainability. This was the message conveyed at the launch ceremony for “Green China Action,” a new campaign scheme that brings together P&G and “Our Part”, a joint environmental awareness initiative between United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Chinese actress/celebrity Zhou Xun. From July to November, they hope to join forces to promote green consumption and foster behavior change toward a low-carbon lifestyle.

The campaign was launched today at Wal-Mart Shekou Store in Shenzhen. Zhou Xun, UNDP’s National Goodwill Ambassador, announced her “Green Commitment,” calling for consumers to start from little daily choices around them and play their part in improving our environment.

“The starting point of sustainable development, simply put, means ensuring better lives for us and for our following generations,” said Mr. A. G. Lafley, Chairman of the Board of P&G. “This is the core mission of P&G, which urges us to provide eco-friendly products and services to three billion consumers each day.”

Ms.Wang Xiaojun, Assistant Country Director of UNDP China and Team Leader of Democratic Governance and HIV/AIDS Team, emphasized the importance of going green in the midst of the economic downturn. ”The concept of environmental protection directs consumers to conserve resources and consume reasonably, and also induces enterprises to promote renewable energy and develop low carbon technology and green products. These are all strong antidotes for the economic downturn. More importantly, joint efforts of individuals and enterprises would help build healthier lives and a better world.”

Ms. Wang Xiaojun also said: “We know that consuming less and cutting carbon emissions can help us save money. In the midst of the financial crisis, this is also precisely what the government and public wish for: protecting against climate change is not only beneficial for the economy, but more importantly, it also helps to improve our quality of life. Therefore, people around the world need to alter their lifestyles to use natural resources more efficiently and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

During “Green China Action”, “Our Part” will work with P&G to promote green consciousness in 3,300 shopping malls and supermarkets nationwide. As an incentive, they will give away five million P&G products to consumers who cherish green shopping

Mimi Lam, Vice President of Shopping Mall Procurement of Wal-Mart China said the company would go further to make an impact across China. “In order to answer Green China Action’s call, Wal-Mart will promote Green China Action’s activities in all of our 150 Chinese stores, inspiring 7 million Wal-Mart shoppers to actively take part in the campaign. At the same time, we will appeal to all of our employees and their families to set an example for sustainability, to the best of our ability making plastic bags disappear from our lives.”

New Posters of "The Message" Released

Huayi Brothers, China's largest movie production company, has released six new posters for its upcoming WWII espionage film, "The Message".

The thriller tells about the factional infighting in the Japanese-controlled Chinese puppet government in the 1940s.

A-list actresses Zhou Xun and Li Bingbing are featured as two code-breakers.

Zhou Xun, best known for her highly emotional roles, puts on an impassive and thoughtful face. Li Bingbing, who plays the senior of Zhou Xun, appears in the poster with a questioning, sober and intellectual look.

Zhang Hanyu, Ying Da and Wang Zhiwen are cast as three senior military officials, all deeply ambitious politicians. A fake scar on Zhang Hanyu's chin is the only unexpected element in the posters.

Alec Su, who plays the assistant to the commander in chief, may be making the biggest career shift with the new film. Donning military uniforms and affecting an almost vicious gaze, he looks completely different from his sunshine-boy image.
