ATV 2014 Miss Asia Pageant US East Coast Final was held on the night of September 6, 2014 in the Sheraton Brooklyn hotel. The exciting show started with this year’s theme “Elemental Evolution” after Joseph and James’ witty remarks. Along with lively music, contestants walked on stage one by one wearing opening dresses they each carefully picked for themselves. This part of the show fully revealed contestants’ style and taste. No matter whether it is shiny or colorful, opening dresses combined with 30-second self-introductions showcased contestants’ unique taste and their beauty and intelligence.

ATV 2014亞洲小姐競選美東賽區的總決賽於9月6日週六晚在布碌崙喜來登酒店舉行。配合「凝聚萬象,純美再生」的主题,總決賽在金牌司儀梁君裕和澤鋒的妙語連珠下,開始了精彩的環節。佳麗們身著自己精心挑選的開場裙伴著熱情的音樂在舞台後拉開序幕。這環節充分體顯各佳麗的个人品味和風格。各式各樣的開場裙或閃耀,或五彩繽紛,配合著短短三十秒的自我介紹來凸顯出佳麗們自己獨特的品味,美麗與智慧。


 

Afterwards, Event Chair Jan He introduced ATV and ATV Miss Asia Pageant to everyone. She mentioned that over the one year of EMO and ATV collaboration, not only 3 pageants were held, which created many opportunities for the young ladies in the East Coast, but they have also produced over 250 episodes of programs, to provide the community with valuable and important information. Jan He sincerely expresses her gratitude to all the sponsors and organizations, and that their support is equivalent to investing in developing information for the community; without them, the valuable information would not be delivered to the community. Information is knowledge, which can improve the quality of lifestyle of Chinese Americans. Ms. He also thanked Mr. Ip, Executive Director of ATV and founder of Miss Asia Pageant, for spending more time on the airplane than in NYC, and Miss Aduo, a famous singer and dancer from China, who flew here from California.

He would continue to support functions that promote diversity. With the collaborative effort from all of us, he is confident that the Brooklyn borough will reach another level of prosperity in the foreseeable future.

Empire State Building
帝國大廈

This past Thursday, September 4th, we woke up extra early in order to seize a great opportunity. In fact, some of us woke up as early as 3:00AM to get ready. We were invited to the Empire State Building as guests, and we were given the opportunity to go to the observation deck without the public being there. It was at 7:00AM, but it was an honor never the less. We went on elevators, escorted by security, that took us over 80 floors straight without stopping. Upon reaching the observation deck, we took in the breathtaking 360 degree view of New York City. We were able to see nearly all the boroughs. In fact, you can see 80 miles into New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and Massachusetts on a clear day. For Trendy New York, we each talked about a historical landmark that could be seen on the deck. For example, we talked about the Brooklyn Bridge, the Freedom Tower, and more. It's safe to say that all of us enjoyed the view and would have wanted to stay there longer if we could.

上週四9月4日這天,有的佳麗們凌晨3點就起來了,為了準備好在7點鐘之前來到帝國大廈。這是一次非常難得的機會,帝國大廈特地為亞洲小姐美東賽區的佳麗們從早上7點到8點的時間預留了帝國大廈的觀景台,這個時間還沒有向遊客開放。佳麗們隨著保安的護送瞬間沒有停歇的上了80多層樓,來到了觀景台。在這裡,佳麗們可以看到360度的景色,包括紐約的五大區。在天氣晴朗的時候還能看到紐約範圍內80英里的地方,包括新澤西、康涅狄格州、賓夕法尼亞州和馬薩諸塞州。每位佳麗還為紐約時尚風節目準備了一個紐約歷史景點來介紹。比如,布魯克林大橋和自由塔等等。大家都很欣賞高處的風景,令人流連忘返。

 

Open Door Senior Center
華策會人瑞老人中心拜訪

One of our favorite places to visit are senior centers. This is because the seniors are always extremely happy to see us and are always filled with energy. When we visited the Open Door Senior Center on Grand Street, we were not disappointed. We were greeted by over three hundred seniors! We each were given the opportunity to introduce ourselves. Each time, the seniors graciously applauded us. After we introduced ourselves, how could we have not educated them about traffic safety with our traffic safety song? The seniors learned a lot at that time to stop, look both ways, and listen for incoming cars. At the event, was also Chief Thomas Chan, who has recently been promoted to the Head  of NYPD Transportation Bureau. He is a big promoter on Vision Zero and our traffic safety song. He even performed it with us! He told the seniors that it is important to keep children and infants on the side walk before crossing the street because they are our most precious gifts. He also informed them that a good tip is to make eye contact with drivers and wave at them to ensure that they have seen you. Charles of the China Southern Airlines was also there to meet with us and the seniors. He promoted their highly anticipated and new direct flight from Guangzhou to New York, being the only airline to do so. He even sang a song to them, which made them very happy. Lastly, we were happy to give away free gifts to the seniors through a raffle. Many of them were picked, and many of us learned numbers in Cantonese while picking the raffle tickets out. We are always happy to give back to the community and look forward to visiting again.

9月4日亞洲小姐和紐約市警察總局交通部警監陳文業一起去了華策會人瑞老人中心拜訪了那裡的三百多個老人。三星警司陳文業介紹了六點交通安全的注意事項。包括過馬路時要向司機招手確保司機注意到你的存在。推嬰兒車出門的時候,一定要確保將嬰兒車放在人行道上。另外,要注意當大巴和卡車在轉彎的時候司機的視線有盲點,所以要保持安全距離。三星警司陳文業(Chief Thomas Chan)也和佳麗們一起跳了美東亞姐精心創作的代表作交通安全歌,共同宣傳交通安全。亞姐們推廣交通安全的努力受到了陳警司的讚賞和鼓勵。老人們都記住了過馬路要:停,看,看,聽,聽。亞洲小姐進行了歌唱和魔術等精彩演出。他們的表演受到了大家的喜愛和支持。南方航空的Charles也來向大家介紹近期從廣州到紐約開的直飛的線路,他還為老人家獻唱了廣東话兒歌,親切的鄉音深受歡迎,成為大家喜愛的"蝦仔"。最後,佳麗們還以抽獎形式送給老人們許多精心準備的禮物。大家一起度過了一個愉快的上午。
