As a bit of a closure, I wanted to speak to hospitality, the business environment and the kindness of the Chinese people. On our final day of the visit, we were invited to the Longsys 2oth Anniversary Dinner. To describe Longsys as being one very large family would be an accurate assessment as I have never seen a company dinner anything close to this in North America.
At 113 tables of 10 people each, there were over 1000 people at this company dinner. To say it was a family atmosphere wasn’t by any means an understatement; this young man proposed on stage, quite unexpectedly, in front of all.
The nights entertainment ranged from a magician to feats of strength, an acrobat, employee recognition and awards, and on to some stunning cultural dance.
I would like to thank Mike Chen, Joey Lopez, Joel Boquiren, Huabo Cai and the Longsys/Lexar/Foresee family for welcoming us and allowing such an amazing memory. There were so many obstacles we all had to cross to make this happen and so many have asked us if we really felt it worthwhile considering it was so far for only a few days. We would do it again in a heartbeat. Great people. Great occasion and amazing memories!
