B-Party1, B-Party2 and B-Party3
The first party of the weekend was a Double-Celebration Party_\!/
My young friend Sean, from Vancouver Canada, whose father has been one of my greatest supporters over the years, was celebrating his 18th birthday this weekend, so his dad invited me and a friend to a special birthday dinner featuring roast duck, birthday noodles and cake.
Sean reminded me that i helped him edit a speech about protecting the environment that he gave to his class in Vancouver a few years ago. According to Sean, it was memorable and a big success… congratulations_\!/

Preparing for the party... creative 3 Finger Friends put up posters and made a big Chalk Board Birthday Card in English and Chinese_\!/
State of the “Republic Of Conscience” speech:
DaLong, (Philip McMaster), welcomed friends old and new, people who have supported him from the early days in China as well as those who are just learning about the 3 Finger Philosophy for the first time.
Philip spoke about the business opportunities surrounding LOHHAS (Lifestyle Of Health Happiness And Sustainability), and how each one of us has an exciting and joyful responsibility to share our ISR (Individual Social Responsibility) with our families, friends, workplace, community, and the world.
Following the introduction of the event and its purpose, the guests introduced themselves and told a little story of how they learned about the event and 3 Fingers.
LCP the Low Carbon Panda was the moderating bear – people passed LCP from one to the other as a sort of “Talking Stick” – meaning the person holding LCP was the one to speak and pay attention to while they held the Panda bear. This way everyone knew when people were finished commenting and clearly passing the “talking time” to the next person.

Non-Traditional “Gift Receiving and Recognizing”.
Speaking from the heart, DaLong then recognized and appreciated each one of the meaningful gifts he was given, in spite of the fact that no gifts were requested or required.
From DaLong’s perspective, people who put effort and care into their contributions should be clearly thanked and recognized. Some of the wonderful gifts given at the parties were truly works of art – and those that were not Hand Made or DIY, were thoughtfully selected to harmonize with the themes of the Peace Plus One – World Sustainability Project and a Lifestyle Of Health, Happiness And Sustainability.
However people got so excited after being introduced, there was no holding them back_\!/
3 FINGER NETWORKING
After seeing all the giving and kindness circulating, that it was very difficult for them to FOCUS on the remaining gift-givers and clearly recognize the thought and effort that went into everyone’s personal gifts, but people were polite and understood that DaLong’s rules are a little different (^_^)_\!/
As the gift presentations came to a close, people quickly broke into small cliques and began networking, wanting to be first in taking advantage of the marvelous opportunity to meet quality people with great minds and attitudes.
DaLong had to gently but forcefully corrall people back into the attentive circle of friends, simply out of respect of those people who had made an unrequired but much appreciated effort to give a gift. DaLong wanted to make sure each and every one was recognized for their kindess and effort.
3 FINGER PHOTO PAPARAZZI
With the speeches, introductions and gift-giving over,Dalong circulated among the guests, and lovely people asked for a photo together… the Pappararazzi 3 Finger Photo session had begun with the Birthday Boy and guests posing with LCP and the 3 Finger Sustainability Symbol gesture:
