Yesterday, Yao Ming showed up in a signing (and donation) ceremony for Yao Foundation in Shanghai. Marriott International extended their sponsorship of Yao Foundation for another 3 years, donating up to US$ 1.3 Million (Renminbi 8 Million) for building 4 additional Yao Foundation Project Hope Primary Schools and 3 seasons of Yao Foundation Project Hope Primary School Basketball Season.

Marriott International had started co-operation with Yao Foundation since 2013, and together, they had built 2 Yao Foundation ~ Marriott Project Hope primary schools, and Marriott had also sponsored 2 Yao Foundation Project Hope Primary School Basketball Seasons.

NOT SURE WHEN was this photo taken.

Shi Yuzhu, founder and president of Giant Interactive, the largest online game developer and operator in China with a personal net worth of US$ 4 Billion showed on his Sina.com Weibo, the following funny picture of Yao Ming with him and Jack Ma Yun.

Obviously both Shi and Ma were standing on chairs such that they looked not as midgets if they stood side by side with Big Yao.

Both Shi and Ma are multi-billionaires and e-commerce/e-game gurus. They invested over US$ 1 Billion last year in WASU Media Holding, a digital television network operator and new media company of Zhejiang.

Chinese tycoons invest over 1bn USD
in cable TV and new media

April 10, 2014


Jack Ma, founder and former CEO of China’s biggest e-commerce company Alibaba, and Shi Yuzhu, the legendary internet entrepreneur and investor, poured 1.06 billion USD (6.54 bn yuan) on 8 April 2014 into WASU Media Holding, a digital television network operator and new media company, according to a Sina.com report.

Ma and Shi jointly bought 286,671,000 shares of WASU’s stock which is listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange, entitling them to 20 percent of the new media company and to nominate two board members.


Ma and Shi made their investment as individuals, but at the same time Alibaba - which was founded by Ma - announced on Tuesday it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with WASU. The two companies will invest in and collaborate on original content, video communication, video games, music, education, cloud computing, and big data.

According to the report, WASU has over 20 million cable TV users and operates in 18 cities across the country, and is a subsidiary of the WASU Group which is partly owned by the government of Zhejiang, a province on the east coast just south of Shanghai. It is one of most developed provinces in China.

LOL !!! WHAT A DOWN-TO-EARTH YAO MING !!!
:lol: :lol: :lol:

He was in Singapore yesterday.

His endorser China Life Insurance opened its first overseas subsidiary in Singapore (not counting the subsidiaries they have in the 2 SARs of Hong Kong and Macau). As its Global Image Spokesperson/Ambassador, Yao Ming went there to be at their opening ceremony.

And at night time, instead of dining at luxurious hotels/restaurants, he was seen eating at those famous hawker food stalls of Singapore !!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

Yao Ming looks very chubby(like Shaq) these days, due to all the junk food and lack of exercises.
