WU CHUN IS SUCH A ONE-WOMAN-MAN
WU CHUN IS ALREADY MARRIED --- IN 2009
Dressed in a solemn black suit, Wu Chun immediately bowed down 90 degrees as soon as he stepped onto the stage. He explained that he had always wanted to share the news about his marriage, but refrained from doing so due to his wife’s wishes. “She has her own opinions. I must respect her decision. Perhaps she feels ready to bravely face and share the news after becoming a mother, and decided to reveal the truth.” He also spoke briefly about his daughter. “I was married in 2009, and my daughter was born in 2010. She is almost three years old. When my daughter was born, I was there to document her birth with photos and videos.”
'Hopes in the Hoop' plays friendly with Chinese Embassy
FITNESS Zone in Kiulap yesterday played host to a friendly basketball game between the KFC Fitness Zone "Hopes in the Hoop" team and the Chinese Embassy in Brunei.
Playing in the Chinese Embassy team were representatives from 12 different Chinese companies in Brunei.
With the growing number of Chinese nationals now working in Brunei, the Chinese Embassy organises internal basketball games, so as to strengthen the ties within the community.
Present to watch the game were officials from the Chinese Embassy, including Acting Ambassador Xin Wen Fang, Defense Attaché Shao Ying Cheng, and Chief of Economic & Commercial Office Jia Xin Wang.
"When we heard that the Chinese Embassy had formed a basketball team, we (Fitness Zone and KFC), as active promoters of basketball in Brunei, invited them to a friendly basketball game," said Fitness Zone Managing Director Wu Chun.
"When the Filipino community came to Brunei to work, they also brought along their great basketball skills, which helped raise the level of basketball in Brunei."
"With basketball being a popular sport in China, similarly, the Chinese community also have the potential to help raise the level of basketball in the future."
The Hopes In The Hoop team also took the opportunity to invite the Chinese team to join the September season of the KFC Fitness Zone 3 On 3 Streetball challenge, which is now open for registration.
In China, KFC also organises 3 On 3 Basketball tournaments annually (in which Jeremy Lin was the ambassador last year), which is so big that it takes almost one year to finish," shared Jonathan Bong of KFC. The Brunei Times
Fitness Zone in Brunei is owned by Wu Chun.
