Written in memory of team members:


A mouthful of that magical rice wine:

the high spirit burns, hitting the divine.

Body and mind is on fire,

masks shatter, no dire.

Original faces reveal,

the feel is now real.

Mission accomplished cheers!

the elation fills the air, jeers.

My old bones move with the music,

traditional dance in my old trick.

Thread of connections link hundred hearts,

joyful relationships are loving arts.
