Well it's probably because of her high heels. 8) :lol: :lol: :lol:

Charlene Wittstock is not as tall as Ye Li. She is only 1.77M/5 ft 10, quite tall for a woman, as she used to represent South Africa in swimming in Olympics.

So with MOST IF NOT ALL his businesses and activities now happening in China, it's LOGICAL and make business sense that Yao Ming had put on sales his house in Hunters Creek Village.

But I think they are still keeping their old house at Windsor Park Lakes at Katy, where his Mom and Dad may still live when they go back and forth from Shanghai to Houston.

After public appearances in recent weeks in a few sports related activities (basketball, soccer and speed skating), Yao Ming did something RARE yesterday.

2012 is the 40th anniversary of normalization of Sino~Japanese diplomatic relationship.

As a part of the celebration and cultural exchange programs, Tadao Ando , a world class architect, and recipient of Pritzker Architecture Prize, the Nobel Prize equivalent in the field of architecture, came to Shanghai and gave a talk to an audience of over 12,000 people in the Shanghai Expo Mercedes Benz Cultural Centre.

Yao Ming and Wang Shi, the multi-billionaire and founder and chairman of Vanke, China's biggest real-estate developer, were invited as special guests to interact with Tadao Ando in his speech.

The theme of Tadao Ando's talk was about Asian Era, where he talked about the arrival of the Asian era in architecture and his philosophy in architecture; he talked about the importance of quality, conservation of energy and resource, and environmental protection in architecture.

And right after his speech, there was this session where Yao Ming and Wang Shi were invited to join him in a casual exchange about pursuit of personal dreams and excellence.

Tadao Ando, now 71 years old, talked about his pursual of his personal dream/excellence, working from a truck driver and boxer prior to settling on the profession of architecture, despite never having taken formal training in the field.

He used to call himself a warrior, and treated every of his projects, a warfield.

In his introduction to Wang Shi and Yao Ming, Tadao Ando also called them warriors in their respective fields.

In his talk, Yao Ming just causally chatted about how he pursued and realized his personal dream, working from a nobody in CBA to a basketball star in NBA.

LOL, Pryuen always eats the bait.

Just let Buzzku have his fun, it's maybe his only day off work.

And Yao is retired and mostly living in China anyway.

Pryuen keeps the troll population on YMM alive and well by providing ample amount of food.
