BridgeClimb Makes Ultimate Connection on Chinese Valentine’s Day
Sydney’s Landmark of Love Bridges Couples and Communications between Australia and China
On Chinese Valentine’s Day, August 13th, BridgeClimb invited five Sydney based Mandarin speaking couples to the city’s most spectacular location, the summit of Sydney Harbour Bridge, for a unique dawn climb blessing.
The special day’s event celebrated the connection between loved ones and marked the launch of www.bridgeclimb.cn, connecting BridgeClimb with its Mandarin speaking audience.
After a 134 meter ascent, five couples assembled at the Bridge summit, which had been decorated for the occasion in red, the colour of love and of Chinese celebration, and took their partners’ hands for a special blessing, read in Mandarin.
Following the blessing, each couple took a moment to tell their story. The fifth couple then surprised the group by making the ultimate connection, as Haibo Hu, of Ryde, got down on one knee and proposed to his girlfriend, Fei Gao, who said yes, much to the group’s delight.
Hu said “Fei is very special to me. I wanted to propose in a unique way and had been researching BridgeClimb among other options. When I heard about the BridgeClimb celebration on Chinese Valentine’s Day, I knew I couldn’t miss the opportunity. It seemed like an incredibly romantic and memorable setting and we can’t wait to get back and share the story with our friends and family.”
The celebration also marked the launch of www.bridgeclimb.cn developed for people in China to connect easily with BridgeClimb and access information about the new Mandarin speaking climb.
Australia is a key holiday destination for Chinese visitors, with over 600,000 here last year. BridgeClimb will continue to invest in innovations and events that help us connect with the Chinese market.”.
