Asian kids in Australia are ‘over the moon’ with a new TV show featuring foreign produced music videos gets them out of bed at 8:30 AM Sunday.
Many kids would have an earlier night on Saturday to catch the show next morning.
Taiwan actor and singer WILBUR PAN had good air time this week. Taiwan getting some good public relations in the process.
Instantly broadcasted SMS and Twitter messages voice opinions of the viewers. The joy shown in text is obvious.
Korea is well represented with videos. (This November, a 12-act live show of Korean performers coming to Sydney).
This is modern diplomacy – via music video.
Broadcaster SBS is government-owned, independently controlled television for mostly foreign films and shows with English sub titles (except for news).
The morning’s are a little warmer. It’s a nice time of year. Still some snow on the high mountains south west of Sydney keeps the southern regions cool. On the mid north coast of New South Wales it’s an ideal time.
Probably one of the top five beers in the world? The draft beer especially. Someone should promote how beer is best enjoyed – that is, in a tall glass containing about half of one bottle of beer.

This is an insult to the taste.
In Australia we usually take a large mouthful but slowly. I lived in a hotel with my parents as owners for 20 years so there is some knowledge retained on the subject in my grey matter.
