Oh i see.. then perhaps, that could lessen my load... then you will have to check with Yun whether he wants to do the Genghis Khan presentation. I know more about Qinshihuang, so I'll definitely do the Qinshihuang presentation, but I don't know whether Yun wants to do the Genghis Khan presentation.
As said, there cannot be more than 2 talks on that day, as the amount of time we have to squeeze 3 talks is not enough, because we have videos to watch. Liang Jieming's talk on Siege Weapons can be postponed till next gathering. But for this gathering, our focus subject will be on Qinshihuang and Genghis Khan. This time, we will focused on chinese history for these two chinese historical figures, rather than zoom in on a small topic on chinese weaponry, as that will provide you with a clear background on chinese history.
I'm doing a bilingual presentation (in both english and chinese) as I do think such will benefit all members. English is done for those who don't understand chinese, but there are certain things in chinese history that are hard to explain in english, so I actually prefer to explain those in chinese. Anyway, CHF do encourage all members to learn and practise chinese language, so in actual fact, I'm helping to promote chinese language as well.
And sorry, the date should tentatively be 7th of January 2006 (Saturday), not 8th (Sunday)
, as I want it to be on Saturday, not Sunday as some members go to Church on Sunday. I haven't confirmed it, as I'm still trying to book the multi-purpose room.
