December is always a busy time

For some reason, everyone wants everything done before Christmas. That means that the weeks leading to the holiday season are always the busiest of the year. If you add all the social functions, the shopping frenzy etc., it can become a rather trying period. It is also a period of great achievements.

Those of you who are based in New Zealand probably heard of the Government Inquiry into the whey incident, whose report was presented to Parliament this week. Thanks to the great work of Amy, Jing, Lisa, Sanying, Li He, and Vincent, we successfully completed its translation into Chinese within a short timeframe. It was published online today.
