Chung Wah Quarterly Bilingual Magazine Autumn Issue

Doing our part for the environment 2020 marks the beginning of a new decade. It is also the 110th anniversary of the founding of Chung Wah Association. Since the end of last year, we have been repeatedly fed with news relating to the environment and climate change, as well as the recent outbreak of the new coronavirus disease. For global issues like these, there is very little that we can do, however as the peak body of the Chinese community in Western Australia, it is our responsibility to respond and act as best as we can. Over the past few months, Chung Wah Association has actively carried out a series of fundraising activities and events, to raise funds for victims of the catastrophic bushfires in the eastern states of Australia. In addition, we also expressed our highest respect to the doctors and nurses battling at the frontline of the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, through various community events. Next, we will take action to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide. Starting from Issue 43, we will no longer publish the Chung Wah Magazine in print, instead we will use the digital platform.

Today, in the age of the smartphone, printing promotional materials have gradually become an unnecessary marketing strategy. 80% of our members can easily access Chung Wah Association’s website to read the digital version of the Chung Wah Magazine. We do recognise that Chung Wah Association belongs to the entire Chinese community in Western Australia. In particular, we greatly appreciate the support of our members over the years. If any member wants a copy of a manually-printed Chung Wah Magazine, feel free to contact our office at 9328 8657 for further arrangements. We have continued to produce interesting stories for our readers in this first issue of the Chung Wah Magazine in 2020. It includes exclusive interviews with the WA Minister for Tourism, Small Business and Multicultural Interests, Paul Papalia, as well as a well-known retired Chinese entrepreneur in the WA mining sector, Dr Simon Lee. You can also go through the fascinating photos and reports of the recent large-scale Perth Chinese New Year Fair and the performances of our cultural groups, in case you missed out on the events themselves. In addition, our health, parenting and business topics also contain useful information that you should not miss.

Chung Wah Association Starting from Issue 43, we will no longer publish the Chung Wah Magazine in print, instead we will use the digital platform only.

We greatly appreciate the support of our members over the years. If any member wants a copy of a manually-printed Chung Wah Magazine, feel free to contact our office at ���� ���� for further arrangements.


2020 is off to a grim start. For the last three months, the Executive Committees (EXCO) and staff of the Association have been working on the planned projects, as well as handling multiple unexpected issues due to natural disasters and global issues. I hope that our friends in the Western Australia Chinese community can continue to support our work and join our services to help vulnerable groups and strengthen community development. On 2 February 2020, we successfully hosted the Perth Chinese New Year Fair for the ninth straight year. Due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus, the crowd numbers dropped significantly compared to previous years. However, it did not affect the selfless dedication and team spirit of the staff and volunteers, who made this event a truly remarkable Chinese New Year celebration in Perth. As a tradition of Chung Wah Association, we also organised a Chinese New Year Ball and ‘Chap Goh Meh’ (Lantern Festival) dinner for our members and friends. Thank you to the volunteers who have contributed to Chung Wah Association for years. Without you, these events would not be able to continue. Chung Wah Association is not merely promoting Chinese culture. We are also committed to representing the Chinese community in WA and contributing to the Australian society. In the past few months, under the guidance of Red Cross, we have started community fundraising to help victims of the catastrophic bushfires, and we raised a total of $35,360, as at 5 March 2020. In addition, we also say ‘No’ to racial discrimination on behalf of the Chinese community in WA at large. As the first cases of the coronavirus were reported in China, some people with a Chinese heritage in Perth have encountered discrimination incidents since early February. Chung Wah Association strongly condemns this improper and unacceptable behaviour from certain members of the local community. We have expressed our strong views against this behaviour to the WA Government, as well as through the local mainstream media and the Chinese media, and we have also communicated with the Commissioner of the Australian Human Rights Commission.

On a positive side, we are delighted to see the increasing number of people being passionate about our traditional culture, and helping our cultural groups to continue to grow stronger. Our Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe reached out to the international market, and we are honoured and privileged to be part of the International Kun Seng Keng Lion and Dragon Dance Alliance. The troupe is now officially the headquarters of the Alliance in Australia.

During the last three years, our Dragon Boat Team has a very strong presence and achievement within the dragon boat racing society. Being the only dragon boat team with a team of members with a Chinese heritage in Western Australia, the team effort paid off with excellent achievements in most races in the last four months. They won 22 out of 28 races. Our traditional Chinese Dance Troupe and Chinese Orchestra group are also highly recognised in the local and multicultural society. These cultural groups are constantly invited to perform at numerous significant multicultural events throughout the year. In addition, we also thank our Table Tennis Club and Choir group for their hard work in running fundraising events for the bushfires appeals. It is good to see the growing number of participants in these cultural groups. We look forward to a better second half of the year 2020. We are anticipating the celebration of the 110th anniversary of the founding of Chung Wah Association. Hope to see you step forward to support and contribute to this significant event and join the family of Chung Wah Association. 译◎Elvie Yap 叶俐廷

尊敬的中华会馆 会员朋友们:

2020年的开始是严峻的。过去的 三个月,中华会馆的理事会、全体员工 都在马不停蹄地实践预期的计划,以 及应对突如其来的天灾人祸。希望西 澳的华人朋友,可以继续支持我们的 工作之余,加入社区服务来帮助弱势 群体和加强社会发展。

会长寄语 PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Dear Members,

作 为珀 斯庆 祝农 历 新 年 的 重 要 活动,2020年珀斯中华新年文化节已 经成功走过了第九个年头。由于新冠 状病毒的疫情,今年出席这活动的人 数也大减。然而却丝毫没有影响我们 台前幕后人员无私的付出和团队的力 量,呈现一个好评如潮的华人传统文 化的盛事。此外,我们也延续了中华 会馆的新春庆祝传统在春节期间,举 办了新年舞会和元宵晚会。感谢多年 来为中华会馆出钱出力的志愿者们, 没有您们,这些活动都无法办得有声 有色。

中华会馆的角色不仅是在弘扬中 华文化,我们也致力代表西澳华人社 区贡献于澳大利亚的当地社会。在过 去几个月,在红十字会的指引下,中华 会馆展开社区筹款,以帮助陷于水深 火热的灾民,截止3月5日,我们已筹 得$35360的善款。此外,在维护西澳 华人利益上,中华会馆就是大家的声 音,向种族歧视说“不”。由于新冠状 病毒肺炎始于中国武汉,自二月初开 始社区频频出现华人朋友被歧视的事 件。中华会馆对此向西澳政府反映, 也通过与当地主流和华人媒体、与澳 大利亚人权委员会的专员交流中,强 烈谴责种族歧视的不当。 另外,值得欣慰的事是西澳华人 社区也因为有着热衷于华人传统文化 的朋友们,使得中华会馆的各个文化 小组百花齐放,大放异彩。近年来,积 极走向国际的中华龙狮团,得到在享 誉东南亚龙狮界的关圣宫同盟总会签 下协议,成为其在澳大利亚的总部。 短短三年时间中华龙舟队在西澳洲龙 舟界已占一席位,过去几个月的28场 比赛的22场中称霸,载誉无数。中华 舞蹈团和华乐团也常被邀请在西澳的 多元文化艺术界的各大盛会,展示中 华文化艺术的美妙。中华乒乓组和合 唱团的成员也日渐增加,并为赈灾筹 款活动带来无比贡献。

希望2020年不如意的事尽快 结 束,我们正积极筹备着今年年底的中 华会馆建馆110周年庆,期盼着您为 这一项盛事出一份力,一起参与到中 华会馆这个大家庭。

Perth Chinese New Year Fair 2020 heralds a prosperous Year of the Rat

he Perth Chinese New Year Fair 2020 was held on Sunday 2 February to celebrate the Year of the Gold Rat. Organised by the Chung Wah Association since its inception in 2012, the event is in its ninth year. The Perth Chinese New Year Fair is the largest Chinese cultural community event in Western Australia, attracting more than 17,000 people (based on numbers collected by Culture Counts) from around the state.

T

In the lead up to the Perth Chinese New Year Fair 2020, William and James Streets were decorated with strings of red lanterns, creating a Chinatown atmosphere full of festive excitement. This artistic vision was a collaboration between the City of Perth, City of Vincent, Northbridge Common and the Chung Wah Association.

food and market stalls, carnival rides and games. Visitors were treated to hourly street performances of lion and dragon dances, martial arts as well as

The Fair began at 12 noon with the lighting of firecrackers by Dr Ting Chen, President of the Chung Wah Association and a blessing by the Chung Wah Dragon. James Street, Lake Street and the Perth Cultural Centre came alive with the traditional sound of Chinese gongs and drums as the Dragon paraded along James Street to the Perth Cultural Centre. There were multicultural

the St John Ambulance and WA Police with an ambulance and a police car on display. Young children were especially excited and enthusiastic to check out the vehicles and engage with the friendly paramedics and constables.

For the first time, the fair extended into the Perth Cultural Centre which was the location for the Murdoch University Cultural Activity Zone. The activity zone was filled with entertaining programs that showcased the traditional cultural heritage. An array of cultural activities and performances were presented by the Chung Wah Women’s Subcommittee and the teachers and students from the four campuses of the Chung Wah Chinese School. The highlight was the acrobatic performance of the Chung Wah Lion Dance Troupe on the poles. In the evening, the Perth Cultural Centre stage featured a youth programme with a special show by Chinese Live DJ and RAP by SHAH-ONE. Simultaneously, Northbridge Piazza hosted the official celebrations starting with a Welcome to Country Ceremony by James Webb and the Wadumbah Aboriginal Dance Group, followed by VIP speeches and the traditional ribbon cutting. The concert commenced with a grand lion dance performance by the Chung Wah Lion Dance Troupe, and vibrant multicultural performances.

The crowd was entertained by the music, dances and song from different countries such as Japan, Indonesia, Ukraine, India and regional Chinese communities, showcasing the cultural diversity of the Western Australian community. Heartfelt concern was shared by most of the speakers on the night about Australia being ravaged by devastating bushfires and many people in China and around the world battling the novel coronavirus that began in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Five well-know Chinese singers in Perth sang a cover version of a song by singer Liao Chang Yong, dedicated to extraordinary heroes. A very special group of people, who bravely put themselves in harm’s way to confront and fight against danger to save lives. They are firefighters, doctors, nurses and health professionals everywhere.

The profile of this event has clearly gone up by leaps and bounds, judging by the number of the multicultural performing groups and the amount of media interest in and coverage of the events, as well as the acknowledgement of government bodies and political figures. In attendance were representatives from the Western Australian Government, the Premier, the Honorable Mark McGowan, the Deputy Leader of Opposition,

the Honorable Bill Marmion, the Minister for Multicultural Interests, the Honorable Paul Papalia, the Minister for Education and Training, the Honorable Sue Ellery, the Minister for Police and Road Safety, the Honorable Michelle Roberts, the WA Police Commissioner, Chris Dawson, the Shadow Minister for Asian Engagement, Dr Mike Nahan, the Shadow Treasurer, Mr Dean Nalder, the Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in Perth, Ms Zhihua Dong, and consular officials from the Perth-based consulates of other Asian countries, as well as guests from political, business, media, community and educational institutions. Thank you for the support and contributions of our sponsors, performers and volunteers, making this event a success and enabling it to continue to draw everyone closer together.

从去年11月开始,西澳洲龙舟锦标赛鸣 响了第一枪,中华龙舟队的健儿踏上了漫长 的征程。无论是40度高温的烈日酷暑下,还是 狂风暴雨的瑟瑟寒风中,每周三次,他们一直 坚持不懈! 西澳唯一的一支华人龙舟队---中 华会馆龙舟队,在长达四个月的赛季中,全体 队员团结一致,努力拼搏:参加28场比赛、获 得了22场第一、6场第二的傲人战绩,向本地 的队伍和观众们展现了中华传统文化的力 量! 3月22日,星期天,是西澳龙舟界的重要节 日,这一天将举行一年一度的西澳洲龙舟冠 军赛,中华龙舟队取得了骄人的成绩。

Starting from November 2019, the Western Australia Dragon Boat Championships has begun its series of dragon boat tournaments, and the Chung Wah Dragon Boat Team’s athletes have embarked on a long journey for this commitment. Regardless of scorching 40-degree heat, or a stormy day, they persistently practise three times a week. Being the only dragon boat team with a team of members from a Chinese heritage in Western Australia, the team efforts paid off with excellent achievements in most races in the last four months. They won 22 out of 28 races, and became first runner-up in the other six races. Sunday 22 March 2020 was an important day in the dragon boat circle of Western Australia as it was the annual Grabd Final of the Western Autralia Dragon Boat Championships. Great to see the Chung Wah Dragon Boat Team achieving remarkable results.

中华会馆凝聚西澳华人的力量为灾民出一份力 文/译◎Elvie Yap 叶俐廷

Chung Wah Association, on behalf of the WA Chinese community, is fundraising for the Bushfires Appeal through Red Cross, to ensure that we can be there for people when the worst happens. Dealing with an emergency can be stressful and exhausting, and recovering from a disaster is a complex process that may take months, even years to overcome. Chung Wah Association supports Red Cross and especially the people going through their recovery, by being there to provide practical and emotional support and information. Besides using the Red Cross online platform for fundraising, Chung Wah Association also co-hosted a variety of events to raise funds for the victims of the catastrophic bushfires which happened

in Australia in the last few months. These events ranged from musical concerts and a table tennis tournament, as well as collecting Bushfires Appeal donations from the public at the 2020 Perth Chinese New Year Fair. Members of cultural groups, such as the Dragon and Lion Dance Troupe, and the Dragon Boat Team, also actively raised funds for this purpose. The event that raised most money for this purpose, in the amount of $16520, was the “Great Love Without Boundaries, Disaster Relief Concert”, held in the evening of 27 January 2020, at the Chung Wah Balcatta Centre. The purpose of this concert was to raise money for people in need, who have lost their family members and their homes in the unprecedented bushfires disaster in Australia in the past five months, helping them to rebuild their homes. The spiritual and financial support from the local Chinese community to the land they call ‘home’ was truly reflected at this event. At the concert, five local well known singers with a Chinese heritage, Julie Yeh, Jun Zhang, Xiaojia Zhang, Yongjun Zhou and Yann Kee, passionately performed to an audience of over 200, under the leadership of Xiangpei Lin, a veteran Chinese culture pioneer in WA. The concert ended with the group singing ‘My Motherland’ and ‘I still call Australia home’.

“我这一生的一个想法,很重要的

事就是要体现出华人社区是慷慨的 和愿意给社会做贡献的。”

中华会馆的永久会员当中,在商场上成就最出类拔萃 的人物李瑞喜博士 AO,在接受《中华之声》执行编辑 叶俐廷采访时,叙述了他的移民之路、商场上的奋斗 史,以及对社会发展的宏愿。

采访中,见识了这位古稀之年的Simon Lee李瑞喜先 生,他的自信、英明和能言善道的个人魅力。自1990 年代至今,他一直是西澳具有影响力的企业家和慈善 家。他是少数华人当中获颁澳大利亚官佐勋章(AO) ,称之为移民背景企业家的典范,当之无愧。他能成为 商场上的巨人,同时又受当地和华人社区所敬仰,想 必大家都想知道他的秘诀。 然而,他给出的答案十分简单,就是“命运”。 正处于半退休状态的李博士,谦虚地说 到: “我觉得自己特别幸运,我这辈子做 过的很多事情,不全靠我的能力,而是命 运的安排。天时地利造就了这一切。 “

人生的转泪点

1962年一月份,李博士入读珀斯技 术学院的会计科。当年,珀斯的廉价学费 和高质量的教育,让它成为热门的留学城 市。他记得当时的学费和生活费,分别只 须各六十澳币。然而,少年时期的李博士 没想到他花了三年打工才储存了一年的学 费,这才让他的大哥愿意赞助他到国外深 造,给了他这个改变人生的机会。 李博士在各种商业领域拥有丰富的 管理经验,曾在亚洲、英国、加拿大和澳 大利亚展开他的职业和经商生涯。获得会 计师资格后,他于1967年回到马来西亚的 一家跨国公司Lever Brothers工作。1969 年,他亲身经历了马来西亚的种族骚乱事 件,在朋友介绍下到新加坡工作,并在短 短几个月内被任命到英国伦敦一家时装公 司当财务总监,当时他才28岁。一年半以 后,其公司在加拿大的联营公司出现财务 问题,派遣他去调查。结果,他发现公司 主席做假账,盗用公司财产,他说服总公 司改变开除主席向警方报案的决定。为了 减低公司的利益名声损失,继续营业,李 博士选择了让违法主席 一一列出他所 做出的 假账,重新整顿全盘账 务。处 理了该公司的重 大危机,李博士被委任 为暂代主席一职,经过 几个月在没有比李博士 更合适的人选,他正式 成为主席。

觉得侥幸的是找到一批忠诚和思维一致, 且勤奋的团队,继而帮助他成功建立了一 个又一个上市的矿公司,如:Samantha, Equigold和 MOD Resources。此外,他 也投资在好几个资源公司,协助他们走上 康庄大道。至今,李博士已经是资源领域 中德高望重的代表人物。

概括而论,他误信了不可靠的人,继 而又找到了诚信的人。他相信,要不是有 前 期 的错 误 选 择,他 就不会踏入矿业生 意,又给他碰到可靠忠诚的团队,带给他 人生的种种胜利。这样看来,早期相信了 不该相信的人也是一种幸运,或许简单而 言,这就是命运。

李博士与中华会馆

这次的采访是在中华会馆楼上的礼 堂进行。在李博士的脑海里,这所古楼在 1980年末是一座非常显眼的大楼。中华会 馆前会长,陈继志医生,也是李博士的多 年好友,是他介绍李博士认识这历史最悠 久的少数民族协会。1987-88年间,李博 士也曾担任会馆的副会长一职。多年来, 他是中华会馆的一位慷 慨解囊的赞助者,包括 了1 9 9 0 年这 座 大 楼 的 大规模装修,李博士捐 献了十万澳 元 。他 也促 成了很多当地主流的商 家给中华会馆捐款。

人们的用语常提到 “我”为主,而不是 “我们”和“ 他们” 应该先想别人才想自己

潮州人善于经商, 李博士是一位知名企业 家,也是不折不扣的潮州后裔。2018年, 他被委任为西澳州中华总商会WACCC的 守护者,正如WACCC的三十周年纪念册 所 记 载,李 博士在香 港 创业以 及曾在香 港的多个大企业,如:Chuang Group, Madison Securities和HK Barge Ltd的丰 富管理经验,让他足以应对香港如此竞争 激烈的商场环境。

在珀斯采矿业的辉煌成就

1981年,他已经可以提早退休,与家 眷回到家乡马来西亚,让孩子在这接受教 育。1983年,当他们一家到珀斯旅游时, 孩子却对这个城市流连忘返。他的企业家 精神又再次掀起投入商场的冲动。1984 年,他移居到珀斯,成为了Great Victoria Gold矿公司的总裁。 虽 然对矿业一窍不通,还 好 他有丰 富的商业和人力资源管理经验。此外,他

1987年2月16日, 中华会馆成立了一个独 立机 构,西澳中华总商 会,这商会的前身是会 馆1985年所成立的商业和专业人士小组。 陈继志前会长曾经形容李博士为一个天 生的社区领袖,许多人都很感恩有他的存 在。陈会长在西澳中华总商会的三十周年 纪念册中指出,当年商会的建立源自于李 博士积极想要通过有意义的方式,打造一 个具有影响力的中心来迎合新亚洲世纪的 崛起。同时,让西澳的华裔商家可以有个 平台进行讨论、申诉和寻求帮助。

作为华人社区的一份子

李博士强调说: “我这一生的一个想 法,很重要的事就是要体现出华人社区是 慷慨的和愿意给社会做贡献的。”

当Kalgoorlie市的矿业名人堂要建 造华人纪念公园,李博士毛遂之荐捐出金 钱上支持。作为西澳采矿业繁荣发展的受 惠者之一,李博士以华人社区的名义,捐助 了这项耗资百万的华人公园项目的99%的

建造费用。他当时期盼这华人公园可以给 这沙漠似的Kalgoorlie市,有个让人较为 舒心的休闲旅游的场所。

1994年,李博士在澳大利亚设立了 以他 命 名的 慈 善 基金 会。他 总觉 得自己 很幸运,应该要回馈社会,这是很重要的 事。虽然现在他已经不参与其中,但也为 这基金会能持续帮助到别人而感到很欣 慰。不久前,Simon Lee 慈善基金会还捐 献五十万的巨款到张任谦心脏研究所,这 个以著名已故华裔医生命名的研究所。

对西澳的真心诚意

曾经历过1969年马来西亚的种 族动荡期 和1980年末西澳的Jack van Tongeren种族歧视行动,李博士衷心希 望中华会馆有一个能言善道的领袖,可以 维护华人利益,且表达华人移民对澳大利 亚的真心诚意。 “作为一 个马来西亚华人,从小 我 在与其他种族朋友交谈时就很谨慎。我们 想要表达的,有时候可能别人有不同的理 解,很可能会造成连锁反应。”

“我们出生为华人,出生地是由父母 所选择的,但是我们居住或移居的地方则 是我们自己选择的。我们选定了澳大利亚 为我们的家,这才是我们想要的家” “像中华会馆这样的协会,肩负重任 要能反映出居住在澳大利亚的华人,普遍 上是愿意贡献社会,而且真心诚意地视澳 大利亚为一个我们选择的家。

我们没有权利选择出生在什么地方, 但是我们可以选择度过余生的地方,对我 而言,我的选择是珀斯。 “纵使李博士在 过去十年主要时间在新加坡,但他表示珀 斯仍然会是他的终点。

给年轻一代移民的忠告

年近八十的李博士,这位受人爱戴的 社会人物,风采依旧、身心状态看起来极 佳。每一年有一半的时间都在云游四海。 问及他的养生之道,他相信关键在于生存 的价值,他强调:“必须要保持着一个目 标和热诚。”

他忠告年轻一代的移民, “无论是对 个人、同学、社会和你选择的国家,要做到 先为别人着想。人们的用语常提到 ”我“ 为主,而不是 ”我们“和”他们“,应该先 想别人才想自己。如果只靠自己,你是无 法实现大成就。以我的经验而言,只有团 队的力量才可以成就大事业。” 中华会馆《中华之声》双语季刊秋季版

PROFILE INTERVIEW 中华人物

A Legendary Chinese Western Australian

SIMON LEE AO

“All my life I’ve thought it was important to represent that the Chinese community in general is generous and does things to contribute to society.” Chung Wah Life Member with the greatest business achievements, Dr Simon Lee AO, chats to Elvie Yap about his migrant journey, business venture and community vision.

16

Confident, thoughtful, wise and ridiculously articulate – in his late 70s, Simon Lee is an influential business and community figure in Western Australia and has been since the 1990s. He was one of the few Chinese bestowed the Officer of the Order of Australia (AO). Suffice to say, he is a role model for many entrepreneurs with a migrant background in Perth. So how did he scale the ladder to become one of the most successful business giants and also well respected in the local and Chinese communities? It turns out to be pretty simple. The answer is ‘Destiny’.

“First and foremost, I would consider myself lucky, a lot of things I have done in my life, it’s not so much about capability, but it’s destiny. It has got to do with the right place and the right time,” the humble semi-retired Simon answered.

Childhood Influences

Growing up in a family of five boys in a multi-racial society in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, Simon was a boy who listened to his most beloved late grandmother.

His family was quite poor. At 15, he was walking with his grandmother and she gave him 20 cents and told him to give it to a beggar. He looked at the beggar, and looked at the coin, and looked at the beggar again, then asked his grandmother if she had change because he wanted to give half to the beggar and keep the other half. She smiled at him and said don’t worry, give the coin to the beggar and she would give him another. She said to him that he was very wise to ask for change as you can’t look after other people without also looking after yourself. However, he also believes that ‘you don’t have to wait until you are rich before you do good things, it can be any time in your life’. Simon often tells people that one is not truly honest until he or she is severely tempted. This was partially a teaching from his grandmother. Simon sighed that it is sad to see the society becoming more materialistic in many ways, and people value a person based on his wealth but not his personality like cleverness and honesty, etc. This change in the society affects our second generation, and kids are only aware of the branded stuff but not the old values.

AUD60 per month for expenses. However, it took Simon three years of working to save the first year’s tuition fees before his brother agreed to sponsor him for this life changing opportunity to study abroad.

Simon has extensive management experience with a diverse range of business enterprises in a career that has brought him to Asia, England, Canada and Australia. After qualifying, he went back to Malaysia to work for Lever Brothers in 1967. Having gone through the racial riots in Malaysia in 1969, Simon was referred to work in Singapore and within a few months, he was appointed as a Finance Director of a fashion company in London when he was 28 years old. After a year and a half there, the associate company in Canada was having some problems and he was sent to investigate. He found out that the President was defrauding the company. The head office

said to fire the President and report him to the police. However, Simon advised them to go another way. You see, the President had been using fake accounts to commit his fraud. If he had been fired for fraud, then all the clients would have claimed that their accounts were fake and they did not owe the company any inventory stock. Instead, Simon went to the President and said he would not let anybody know of the fraud and he could go quietly but in return, the President had to inform Simon of every one of the fake accounts. In this way, the business was saved from a potentially disastrous fraud and instead, could minimise its damage and continue as a trading concern. Simon then asked for direction and the head office said that he should run the company whilst they find a replacement President. The next month, he rang them to report and asked if they had found a replacement and they said to hold down the fort and they’re still looking.

Life Changing Journey

In January 1962, Simon came to study Accountancy at the Perth Technical College. Perth was a popular destination back then for its quality but cheaper education cost. He remembered a total cost of approximately AUD60 for fees and

Chung Wah Quarterly Bilingual Magazine Autumn Issue


Dr Simon Lee AO is a notable entrepreneur of Teochew descent. He was appointed as the Patron of the WA Chinese Chamber of Commerce (WACCC) in 2018. As indicated in the 30th Anniversary Commemorative publication of the WACCC, the business experience of Simon, in his own business and with the Chuang Group, Madison Securities and HK Barge Ltd in Hong Kong, provided him with excellent grounding in the very competitive business world of Hong Kong.

His Achievements in the Perth Mining Industry

In 1981, he was able to enjoy his early retirement together with his family, back in Malaysia for his children’s education. During a family visit in Perth in 1983, his children fell in love with Perth. His entrepreneurial spirit prompted him to start his own business again and in 1984, he migrated to Perth. He found himself in mining as the Managing Director of Great Victoria Gold. He had no experience in mining but he was able to apply his extensive business and workforce management experience. Luckily, he managed to find a group of honest and like-minded, hardworking people and they became a highly successful and loyal team and they went on to build several listed mining companies together, such as Samantha and Equigold and MOD Resources. He has also served in many other resource companies and helped them to prosper. Simon is now a well-known and highly respected personality in the resources sector.

Apart from the Chinese community Dr Lee has also serve in various aspects of the broader Australian community such as

• Chairman of The Perth Theatre Trust • Chairman of The WA Museum Foundation

• Senate of Murdoch University • Board Member of Austrade

• Board Member of Australia China Council

• Board Member of Charles Gardiner Hospital Foundation • Member of The Kings Park Board

financially to CWA during his tenure in office.

On 16 February 1987, CWA established a separate entity, the Western Australian Chinese Chamber of Commerce Inc. This had evolved from the Association’s Business and Professional Group that was formed in 1985. Dr Eric Tan once described Simon as a natural leader of the community and people are grateful to have him around. He mentioned in the WACCC’s 30th Anniversary Commemorative book, saying that, the very idea of establishing this Chamber came from Simon’s desire to help build an influential centre which can then help to contribute to the new Asian Century in a meaningful way, and it also provides a platform for Chinese businesses in Western Australia to hold discussions, voice grievances and seek help.

People are always ‘me’ and ‘I’,rather than ‘us’ and ‘them’, think of others before yourselves.

As you can see, he was unlucky to invest with dishonest people and then lucky to find honest people. But perhaps if he hadn’t invested with the dishonest people, he wouldn’t have found the mining business and found honest people and thereby creating a fantastic team which went on to many successes. So perhaps he was lucky to invest with dishonest people. Or perhaps it is easier to call it simply, destiny.

Simon and the Chung Wah Association

This interview was conducted at the Chung Wah Association’s main hall. Ingrained in Simon’s memory, the heritage building was a prominent building back in the late 1980s. The former President of Chung Wah Association (CWA), Dr Eric Tan, also a good mate of Simon, introduced him to this ethnic association with the longest history. Simon was the Vice President of CWA in1987-88. He has been a generous supporter of CWA, including a significant donation of $100,000 for the extensive renovation of the Chung Wah Hall in the 1990s. He also managed to attract many mainstream businesses to contribute

The third month, he called to report in and asked if they had found the replacement. They told him you are the replacement President.

On behalf of the Chinese Community

“All my life, I’ve thought it was important to represent that the Chinese community in general is generous and does things to contribute to society,” says Simon. When the Mining Hall of Fame in Kalgoorlie wanted to build a Chinese Garden of Remembrance, it was Simon who came forward with the necessary financial assistance. As one of the beneficiaries of the mining boom in Western Australia, Simon donated 99% of the million-dollar project of the Chinese Garden under the name of the Chinese community, hoping to soften the impact of the desert-like conditions of Kalgoorlie as a venue for tourism and recreation.

In 1994, Dr Simon Lee AO established the Simon Lee Foundation in Australia. He started it because he feels that it is important to give back to society when he has been so lucky. He is now no longer involved but is proud and happy that it continues to do good work. The Simon Lee Foundation recently committed to donate half a million dollars to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Foundation, named after a reputable medical professional with Chinese heritage.

His Diligence for Western Australia

Having experienced the racial riots in Malaysia in 1969 and the Jack van Tongeren period in WA in the late 1980s, Simon strongly wishes that Chung Wah Association will have a leader who has the ability to articulate to Australia the diligence of the migrants with a Chinese heritage. “As a Chinese Malaysian, I was very conscious when talking to my peers of different races since young. What we try to express may be interpreted by others differently, which could create a ripple effect.”

“We are Chinese by birth, the place we were born was chosen by our parents, but the place we live and migrate to is our own choice, we have chosen Australia as our home and that is a conscious decision.” “Associations like Chung Wah have a major responsibility to project that people of the Chinese race living in Australia, in general, do contribute to the society and our diligence really is for Australia, the place we adopt to.” “We never have the choice as to where we were born, but we have the choice where we will die, for me, it will be Perth.” Although he has been spending most of his time in Singapore in the past decade, he indicated that Perth will be his final destination.

Words for the Younger Generation of Migrants

Approaching his 80s, the much-loved community figure shows a healthy and well-maintained appearance. He spent half of the year travelling to different countries. Sharing his wellness tips in longevity, he believes it is primarily a sense of purpose. “Must have an objective and passion,” he emphasised.

His advice to the younger generation of migrants, “always think of others first, whether personal, school friends, the society or the country you move to. People are always ‘me’ and ‘I’, rather than ‘us’ and ‘them’, think of others before yourselves. If you work alone, you will never achieve great success. In my experience, only teams achieve great success.”

Compassion begins with a simple life 慈悲从简单生活开始 Elvie YAP 叶俐廷 - Executive Editor 执行编辑

racing back the news reported by the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) between the end of 2019 and February 2020, it reflected that 87 percent of glaciers along the west coast of the Antarctic Peninsula have retreated in the last 50 years, with most of this showing an accelerated retreat in the last 12 years. If the entire immense ice sheet of the Antarctic melted, it would be enough to raise the sea level by around 60 metres.

T

As reported, the year 2019 was on track to be the second or third warmest year in history. Without effective urgent climate action, it is very likely the global average temperature will increase by more than 3°C by the end of the century. With these consequences of global warming, more losses of life are expected in the coming years as heatwaves and floods may occur more frequently.

I chatted recently with a friend who Is a practising Buddhist, pertaining to natural disaster and climate change issues. She asked me how I would define the Chinese phrase of ‘Compassion’. I was stunned for a moment. She explained that the combination of ‘ci’ (kindness) and ‘bei’ (sadness) literally means to give to those in need and provide help to eliminate someone’s suffering. We may all have sympathy to those who are suffering, however there aren’t many of us who could truly act compassionately.

The catastrophic bushfires in the eastern states caused millions of wildlife losses in the last two months; thousands of seals and polar bears losing their

habitats as the accelerated retreat of glaciers in Antarctic threatened their lives; and more than 400 bird and 150 mammal species – 45,000 of them elephants – are suffering from dry seasons in Africa. Millions of animals are facing life-threatening conditions due to the impact of global warming. As we witness a series of alarming signals given by Earth, all of a sudden, countries globally are being hit by the new coronavirus disease, COVID-19. This incident is making the world population to slow down, as some have to self-quarantine at home with family. Looks like it has given us an opportunity to think of what changes we should start making. In fact, we all can live a simple life.

There is no living being other than humans who could take the initiative to reduce the carbon dioxide emission, in order to reduce the speed of global warming. To be a ‘compassionate’ person, firstly start practising a ‘low-carbon’ lifestyle. It is also a way to be responsible for the future ‘you’, generations and millions of animals out there.

据世界气 象 组 织在 2019 年底 至 2020年二月之间的报道中,提及在 过去的50年中,南极半岛西海岸约有87 %的冰川已消融,其中大多数在最近12 年中都在加速融化,如果南极洲的冰原全 部融化,足以将世界的海平面升高60米左 右。2019年是全球平均温度是有史以来第 二或第三高的年份,如果没有重大的环境 保护措施,全球平均温度到了这世纪末, 很可能比目前的增加超过3摄氏度。这意 味着将会有更多生命因为热浪、洪水等的 频繁发生而岌岌可危。 同一位在努力修行学佛的朋友探讨, 近几个月的天灾人祸、环境变化问题,突 然被问及如何看待“慈悲”这两个字,我 被愣住了。她解释道,所谓的“慈”就是 给予有需要的人, “悲”就是消除别人的 痛苦。怜悯之心人人有之,然而能真正做 到“慈悲”的少之又少。

澳洲东部史无前例的山火灾难导致上 亿野生动物葬生火海;千千万万的海狮、 北极熊因严重的冰川消融没有栖息之地而 走上死亡;超过四百种鸟类和一百五十种 哺乳动物包括四万五千头的大象在非洲因 严重干旱而危及生命。这世界上无数的动 物在承受着地球暖化给他们带来的痛苦。 就在这地 球告急的讯号频频发生之 际,这突如其来的新型 冠状病毒全 球引 发。原本讲求效率和速度的地球人一切放 缓,仿佛给这个世界一个慢下来 思考的机会。原来生活可以很简 单 。要减 低 全 球 二 氧化碳 排 放量来减缓地球暖化,也 只有万物之灵的人类才可 以做到;要做个“慈悲” 的人,首先学会过“低 碳”生活,为未 来的自 己、下一代和千千万万 的生命负责。

A MAN OF ACTION

Honourable Paul Papalia CSC MLA 20

peaking exclusively to Chung Wah Magazine, Minister Paul Papalia provided his interpretation of the performance of Tourism Western Australia (WA) since the Government took office, and revealed his confidence in Perth as the best place in the country to study, work, live or travel. Tourism Western Australia

After a committed effort of intensive marketing and promotion launched by Tourism WA, in the year ending September 2019, the international visitation to WA saw a significant growth, with 987,700 total visitors, amongst them were 521,800 holiday visitors. This is the largest number of international visitors WA has ever seen, for both holiday and total visitors.

In early February 2020, we interviewed the leader of Tourism WA, Paul Papalia, the Minister for Tourism, Racing and Gaming, Small Business, Defence Issues, Citizenship and Multicultural Interests, who was appointed in March 2017. Bringing such extraordinary achievements to the WA tourism industry has demonstrated that he is a man of action.

Trial Flight between Perth and Shanghai

A number of direct flights from key Asian markets were started, in 2019 included All Nippon Airways (ANA) direct flights between Tokyo and Perth, which started on September 1,2019; the first 185 passengers fly direct from Shanghai to Perth by the China Eastern Airlines arrived at Perth Airport in morning of January 14, 2020;

and the Philippine Airlines direct flights to Manila starting March 30, 2020. As the outbreak of the Novel Coronovirus originated from China, we asked about its impact to the continuity of the seasonal trial flights between Shanghai and Perth. “The first thing to understand is the direct flight trial from Shanghai to Perth by China Eastern was a success. The aim of the trial was to demonstrate a demand of the service and when we met the Executives of China Eastern Airline on 13 January, they had already sold 83% of all seats of all flights.”

Disregarding the “empty leg” condition where the return flight flies without passengers, “at the end of the trial, it was 94% occupancy. Very successful. We will continue discussions in trying to get a regular flight. All unchanged before the coronavirus, everywhere has been affected,” said Minister Papalia. He emphasised that the moment travel restrictions are lifted, Tourism WA will be back in Shanghai to talk to the Executives of China Eastern about regular flights.

The Tourism WA personality believes that there is more business travel between Perth and Shanghai than anywhere else in China. The first direct flight to a Chinese city is the Perth to Guangzhou route, brought by China Southern Airlines. It has increased

Chung Wah Quarterly Bilingual Magazine Autumn Issue

its frequency to Perth to four flights a week from 16 July 2015. There was over 90% occupancy on average all year round. “I would think because most of the mining companies do a lot of business in Shanghai, lots of export from WA, lots of business relationships are based in Shanghai.”

Chinese Tourists the Biggest Spender in the WA Tourism Market

China is WA’s number one market in terms of visitor spend, with 66,700 Chinese visitors spending $280 million during their stay in the State in 2018-19. Of these, 40,500 were visiting WA for a holiday, representing a significant increase of 97.5% from the previous year.

According to Perth Airport, if China Eastern Airlines commits to a regular service, it could mean an additional $40 million in visitor spend. Tourism WA’s existing work to attract visitors to our State - including the $12 million international marketing boost, which doubled the State Government spend in its 10 key tourist markets. China is one of these markets. Early this year, Minister Paul Papalia met with Ctrip.com, establishing a good relationship and partnership with


言行一致的君子 A MAN OF ACTION

them. Ctrip.com is the biggest online travel agent in China and the second biggest in the world.

“Before the coronavirus, they were able to tell us WA has not been affected by the bushfires, and China travellers knew WA did not burn. We grew our Chinese visitor market by 100% in the leisure market and the holiday maker by group by 102%, this happened before the coronavirus,” he explained.

“The two-year action plan, very much focusing on growing our international holiday maker for our regional market, China was a central market for that, we were growing four times more than the national average before this happened. Firstly, we make Western Australia Perth as the western gateway to Australia,we are a separate market than the east coast.”

Rapid Tourist Growth in Rottnest Island

Rottnest Island has been a key plank in Tourism WA’s two-year action plan and the marketing blitz has been hard to ignore. The island’s annual visitor numbers hit a record high of 785,002 in the tourism report mid-2019. With visitor numbers continuing to rise, Rottnest Island is on target to reach its 2034 target of 800,000 annual visitors more than a decade ahead of time. “The Government spent $33 million in Rottnest, improving facilities and amenities. Since we took office, the number of visitors to Rottnest was up by 220,000 visitors a year, every month they set a new visitor record.”

“When we first got there, the number of visitors from interstate or overseas, from outside WA, was 15% of the overall tourism number, now it is 40%, the number has grown by 202%,” Minister Paul Papalia revealed.

What attract the Chinese tourists to WA?

We asked Minister Paul Papalia what type of Chinese travellers like to visit WA and he responded that WA gets a good number of Free Independent

Travellers. “They are people who are more mature travellers, more comfortable travelling, not their first overseas trip, they are not likely to go in a group, more likely to be small, a couple or individual, go to the region, do more adventurous things, spend more money, we have the best part of traveller coming from China already. “Increasingly, what people look for is a unique experience, experiential tourism, you get to experience it physically as well as seeing it, we offer access to the natural environment, pristine, beautiful nature in Perth, also Rockingham and Penguin Island, see the seal colony, swim with wild dolphins within the metropolitan area, take a ferry up the river for premier wine, gourmet food production region, go up a seaplane, go to Rottnest, that is the A-class reserve, beautiful pristine environment and also some friendly quokka in there.” “If you want to go out of the city, incredible things like coral coast, whales, sharks, and the Kimberley. If you only have a short period of time, you can experience and encounter an incredible and unique experience, best hotel in the country and most affordable.” The 204-room Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Perth at Elizabeth Quay, officially opened on 15 November 2019 and marks the return of the brand to Australia for the first time in 18 years, enabling guests

to enjoy Western Australia’s newest luxury hotel in the heart of the CBD.

Perth is Australia’s gateway to Asia and its only Capital City on the Indian Ocean Rim. “Another attractive point for Asian tourists, we are in the same time zone as China and most of Asia, only an hour behind Japan, and two and a half hours ahead of India. We are at the middle of everything, we are closest, timing really good, no jet lag!” he exclaimed.

“We are focused on trying to attract a greater share of the conferencing market. In the past, we don’t have hotel products to attract them, but now we do. We do partnerships with airlines, hotels, key distribution partners and inbound tour operators, to ensure attractive tour packages are being marketed to people.” Last year, Chung Wah Association hosted the Perth Chung Wah Cultural Festival to showcase the cultures and traditions of the vibrant WA Chinese community, set in Burswood Park on the banks of the beautiful Swan River, for seven days.

“This year would be much bigger than that, expected in October, lots more funding, shorter in time, twoday cultural festival, big business conference will be funded, more lead time to build the dragon boat race all over Asia from China and our key markets, we get teams across Asian countries. Trying to get media from cities like Guangzhou, Beijing, Shanghai, use that as the way to promote the destination back in their country, I have to get funding from the budget. We plan to make the Chung Wah Festival much bigger this year.” Western Australia also organised other cultural events, such as Fringe World and the Perth Festival, attractive to the community at large. Being an Australian city close to Asia, same time zone, doing business is easier too. “As Tourism Minister, I am pushing those event operators to market themselves more for Asia.”

“We are absolutely dedicated to the China market. We want to be ready to welcome people back, got to be there straight away once it is resolved.” 中华会馆《中华之声》双语季刊秋季版

Small Business Portfolio

Minister Paul Papalia is not only a productive Tourism Minister, he is also a proactive and optimistic Small Business WA State Minister.

In Western Australia, at least 80% of the jobs are created by the private sector, and small businesses account for 97% of all businesses. According to the Australia Bureau of Statistics Counts of Australian Businesses, as at June 2018, there were 2,259,098 small businesses nationwide, with 224,270 in WA. These small businesses fall into the following main industries: construction, retail trade, transport and warehousing, agriculture, and financial and insurance services. New business spending has been down in Western Australia for the past four years as the mining and construction booms have slowed.

“I think people should have optimism. I know it has been tough, particularly in retail. The WA economy is the best place in the country to grow this year. We are still a good place to rebound the best. Tourism is the big contributor, more people coming to Perth from outside WA than ever before, staying in hotels, bars and restaurants, small businesses also can benefit from that,” Minister Paul Papalia reassured small business operators in WA.

Besides focusing on the ‘Metronet’ project, the biggest investment in public transport that the State has ever seen, the McGowan Government is also on a mission to bring all COLLINS class submarine maintenance, the Full Cycle Docking, to Western Australia, which is expected to create more than 3000 local jobs and contribute more than $8 billion to the State’s economy.

developed for the booms are now underemployed, lots of the skill set can apply to this sort of work with a bit more training. We believe in the national interest, by 2024, we think it should come here.”

Business Support for the Migrant Community

The Small Business Development Corporation (SBDC) is an independent statutory authority, established in 1984. Its primary role is to encourage, promote, facilitate and assist the establishment, growth and development of small business in Western Australia. When asked about how this organisation benefits the migrant community business members in WA:

“Most migrant communities, one of the first ways to access the economy is setting up a small business. SBDC is for everyone. A couple of years ago, I asked them to run forums for people looking to start a business. I asked them to create it for the migrant community and they did. Talked to Associations about the availability of these forums, things like mentoring, free mediation, resolve arguments, also legal advice through the Curtin University Law School. All of these services are also available for the migrant community, and the Office of Multicultural Interests helps with the language,” he said. On 11 June 2019, Minister Paul Papalia tabled changes to the Small Business Development Corporation Act 1983 to boost the authority of the Small

He confided that the Federal Government committed $200 billion towards creating the submarine defence industry over the next 10 years, and $90 billion towards ship building. “Our industry-based, industry sector worker in WA is twice the size of South Australia, because of the offshore oil and gas and mining, and lots of skilled workers who were trained and

Business Commissioner. The reforms will underpin the establishment of a specialised Investigations and Inquiry Unit, aimed at improving corporate and government behaviour and removing unfair practices.

“This proposed bill and act to give more power to the Consumer Protection Commission to protect subcontractors. Create an investigative unit in the Small Business Commissioner’s Office, and they will be able to get notification from small business if someone is not treating them right, not paying them, unveil more investigative power to demand more information whether they pay people.”

The Importance of Multicultural Society

Speaking to State Minister for Multicultural Interests, we asked his view of a multicultural society like Western Australia, and how it benefits our next generation. “The ability to give us the knowledge of language and culture that connect with the institution of business and government in potential markets with potential partners, which we wouldn’t be able to access if we didn’t have that resources. Having the multicultural and CALD communities makes us a more powerful player in the region and the world. “We right now look toward CALD communities helping the State, grow opportunities, connect, grow business and create jobs.”

《中华之声》独家采访Paul Papalia部长,对西澳旅游业发展的观点,他表现 的信心满满地认为珀斯是全澳大利亚里最适合学习、工作、居住和旅游的地方 。

经过了西澳旅游部紧凑有效的市场拓展和宣传攻势,截止去年九月份的过 去一年的数据,西澳在国际旅游上取得突破成绩,纪录显示共有987,700名的访 客,其中521,800名是来西澳旅游的。无论是访客总数或旅游者人数,这是西澳 前所未有的纪录。

2020年二月初,我们采访了西澳旅游的最高领导,旅游部长Paul Papalia。 他自2017年三月,一直都兼任着博彩业、小型企业事务、国防事务及多元文化部 长。西澳旅游的辉煌成绩,足以反映Papalia部长,是一位付诸行动的政治人物。

珀斯和上海直飞试航

多项从数个主要亚洲市场直航到珀 斯的航班已经执行了,这包括2019年9月 1日,日本全日空航空公司的东京-珀斯直 航;2020年1月14日中国东方航空上海直 飞珀斯试航,首度载送了185乘客抵达珀 斯;2020年3月30日,菲律宾航空的马尼 拉直航珀斯也继而开启。 由于新冠状病毒源自中国造 成人心 惶惶,我们向部长了解此病疫对这珀斯和 上海试飞直航的负面影响。 “大家首先要清楚这次东航首次的 上海和珀斯试航是成功的,目的在于证实 有这航班的需求。我们在1月13日接见中 国东航的高层,获知所有试航航班已经有 高达83%的售票率。 “

如果考虑到航空业上常出现的回程 空载一趟的情况,部长说:“试航的结果是 达到94%的售票率,非常成功。我们将会 继续和航空公司商讨争取将此航 班长期 运行。然而现在每个地方都受新冠状病毒 事件所影响。 “ 他强调一旦旅游禁令解除后,西澳旅 游部会马上到上海与东航的高层洽谈长期 航班的事宜。

这位西澳旅游的发言人相信,相比中 国任何一个城市,珀斯和上海之间的商务

来往最紧密。广州是珀斯首个直航到达的 中国城市,由南方航空推出的珀斯和广州 之间的航班。自2015年7月16日,南航把 这个航线增加到每周四班,全年的售票率 高达90%以上。

“我认 为由于大多数的矿业公司在 上海都有业务来往,加上有大量的出口到 上海的纪录,还有很多的商业关系主要源 自上海。”

中国游客是西澳旅游业 的最大消费者

2018 -201 9 年之间,依 据游 客消费 量最高的统计数字,中国排名第一,总计 66,700的中国访客在境内消费了2.8亿。 其中的40,500人是来西澳旅游的,这个数 字相比以往,大幅度增加了97.5%。根据 珀斯机场的预测,如果东航愿意长期提供 珀斯-上海航班,可能会给西澳带来额外的 四千万游客消费收入。 西澳旅游目前的工作就是要吸引更多 游客前来西澳,其中包括了1200万的国际 拓展业务的经费,比往年多双倍,志在锁 定十个主要市场的宣传工作,中国是其中 一个主要市场。

今年初,Paul Papalia 部长会晤了中 国最大的旅游网,全球第二的Ctrip.com 的代表,建立友好关系。

部长解释道:“ 在发生新冠状病毒事 件之前,他 们 也 知道 西澳 并 未 受山火 影 响,中国游客也知道。我们成功把休闲旅 游的中国游客市场增加了100%,旅游团 则增加了102%。这都是发生在新冠状病 毒事件之前。

西澳旅游部的一份两年的行动计划, 重点放在吸引更多国外游 客到偏远地区 观光,这个数字在不断增长中 。中国是这 计划的主要市场。在病毒事件越演越烈之 前,我们的游客增长是全国其他州省的增 长平均数的四倍以上。首先,我们把西澳 珀斯打造成澳大利亚西边的出入口。”

罗特尼斯岛游客与日俱增

西澳旅游的两年行动计划中,罗特尼 斯岛成为重中之重的景点,州政府针对此 岛的大肆宣传工作不容忽视。2019年中的 旅游报告显示,此岛的全年游客人数高达 785,002人。州政府原计划在2034年,到 访罗特尼斯岛的游客可以达到80万人的目 标,以现在的走势看来这个宏愿可以提早 超过十年实现。 Paul Papalia部长道: “政府耗资三 千三百万来建设罗特尼斯岛。自我们的政 府上任以来,此岛每年的游 客增长 2 2万 人,每个月都刷新纪录。记得当初到此岛 时,无论是来自其他州省、海外,就是来自 西澳以外的游客人士,只是旅游统计数字

西澳吸引中国游客的地方

当问及一般哪类的中国游客会选择 来西澳旅游,他指出西澳特别受自由而独 立的旅行者青睐。 “这些游客是较为成熟的旅游人士, 熟悉旅游,不会是他们首次出国,他们一 般不会一 团人出游,通常只会是 一 个小 组、一对情侣或个人。他们会选择偏远地 区、尝试较为冒险的事物,比较肯花钱。 我们已经有中国游客中最好的市场了。 “越来越多人偏爱能够有独特体验、 亲身经历形式的旅游,可以触摸和亲眼看 到的。珀斯可以带给他们有原始和美丽的 大自然环境,到罗金汉市和企鹅岛,去看 海狮的园地;体验与海豚共游;坐上邮船 驶去顶级红酒和美味佳肴的区域;尝试坐 水上飞机;到罗特尼斯岛,这可是A级受保 护区景点,有漂亮且原始的景色和亲和力 十足的短尾矮袋鼠。

如果你想走出市中心范围,还有许多 稀有的事物等待你发掘,比如:珊瑚礁、 鲸鱼、鲨鱼,还有金伯力区域。然而没有 足够时间的话,你也可以一样在都市范围 享有各种独特的体验,这里还有全国最好 的酒店,价格也合理。 “ 位于珀斯伊丽莎白码头,共计204间 套房的Ritz-Carlton酒店,于2019年11月 15日正式开幕,象征了这家国际品牌的酒 店18年后重返澳大利亚市场的历史性一 刻,让西澳的宾客可以享受在市中心入住 西澳最崭新豪华的酒店。

珀斯是亚洲飞往澳大利亚的出入口, 也是环印度洋区域的唯一主要城市。部长 也说道: “另一个吸引亚洲游客的卖点是 无时差,我们的时间和中国还有大部分亚 洲国家相同,比日本晚一个小时和比印度 早两个半小时。我们恰好在很多事情的中 间,而且距离最近、时间也最好,不用面 对时差问题。

“作为旅游部长,我一直在推动这些 活动组织者向亚洲推广这些活动。”我们 绝对重视中国市场,我们要做好准备再次 欢迎您们的归来,当事情解决了,一定马 上到中国磋商。 “

小型企业事务

Paul Papalia部长不仅是个效率高的 旅游部长,他也是一位积极和乐观的西澳 州小型企业部长。

在西澳,至少80%的工作是由私营公 司创造的,而小型生意占所有企业的97% 。根据澳大利亚统计局针对澳洲企业的统 计,截至2018年六月,全国有2,259,098个 小型企业,其中西澳有224,270家。这些 小型企业涵盖的主要领域包括建筑、零售 贸易、运输和仓储、农业以及金融和保险 服务。过去四年来,随着采矿和建筑业的 放缓,西澳的新业务支出一直在下降。 “我觉得人们应该保持乐观。我知道 这段日子很多商户都不容易,尤其是零售 业。西澳的经济相比其他州省在今年是最 有上升的潜质。旅游业贡献很大,有更多 来自西澳以外的人来到珀斯,入住酒店, 酒吧、餐馆和各小型生意都会受惠。”

除了西澳目前的’Metronet’工程, 这有史以来州政府最大的公共交通发展 投资,麦高文政府也肩负重任,要将所有 COLLINS 级潜水艇全循环入坞系统保修 项目移师到西澳。这个项目估计可以带来 三千个当地工作机会,也可以给西澳的经 济注入超过80亿的收益。 “海上石油和天然气及采矿业是西 澳 主 要 行业 之一,我们 这领域的蓝领比 南澳 多双倍。许多曾接受培 训 的熟 练 技 工 现在 就 业机会不多,他们 所拥 有的技 能只须要一些针对性的培训就可以运用 在其他相关工作。我们相信,出于国家利 益,到2024 年,我们认 为这 项目应该来 到西澳。 “

我们专注于尝试吸引更多商务会议 的市场,在过去,我们没有足够的酒店来 吸引他 们,现在 我 们 有。我 们 跟 航 空 公 司、酒店、主要合作伙伴、本地团合作,以 确保可以有具吸引力的旅游配套来推出市 场。”

去 年 ,中 华 会 馆 主 办了 为 期 七 天 的珀 斯中华文化 节,在 美丽天 鹅河 旁的 Burswood公园展示了西澳华人社区的传 统文化。 部长说道: “今年估计会把这活动做 得更大规模,预估在十月份,更多拨款, 但会缩短活动天数,大概两天的文化节, 一场大型的商务会议活动,更多凑备时间

给移民社区的商务援助

小型企业发展机构(SBDC)是成立 于1984年的独立法定官方机构。其主要 作用是鼓励、促进、协调和协助西澳大利 亚州小型企业的建立、成长和发展。

当被问及该组织如何使西澳的移民 社区的成员受益时,部长回答道:“对于 大多数移民社区而言,进驻 经济 市场的 最前期的方法之一就是创办一家小型企 业。SBDC适合所有人。几年前,我建议他 们为想要创业的人举办讲座,也促请他们 给移民社区提供这服务,他们做到了。向 各个协会推广这些 讨论 会的存 在,服 务 包括指导,免费调解、解决纠纷,以及通 过科廷大学法学院的法律咨询之类的事 情。所有这些服务也欢迎移民社区使用, 而多元文化部办公室则为该服务提供语 言帮助。

2019年6月11日,Paul Papalia部长 提出了修订1983年《小企业发展公司法》 (Small Business Development Corporation Act 1983),以增强小企最高专员的职权。 这些改革将为建立专门调查小组和咨询 单位 提 供 基 础,以改善私营企业以 及 政 府部门的不当行为,并剔除一些不公平的 做法。 “这项拟议法例旨在赋予消费者保 护委员会更多权力,以保护合约商。在小 型企业专员办公室中创建一个调查部门, 如果 有人 没有获 得正确 的对 待,收不到 钱,他们可以向这部门举报,这小组被赋 予更多的调查权力,要求接受调查的公司 提供更多信息,以确保他们有付账。”

多元文化社区的重要性

与多元文化部州长对话,我们提问了 有关他本人对西澳般多元文化社会的看 法,及其对下一代的正面影响。

他说道: “多元文化的本能让我们有 足够的语言和文化知识,可以在有潜力的 市场和合作关系上与政府和商家接轨。如 果没有这方面的资源,我们就无法做到。 西澳的多元文化社区,让我们在各地域或 全球上更有力量。” “我们希望多元文化社区可以帮助 到西澳州,创造机会、关系,拓展商务和 制造就业机会。”

TRAINEESHIPS Did You Know?

T

文 ◎ Yvonne Yeo 杨佩芬, CEO, AIWT 总裁 译 ◎ Yves 若水

he Government of Western Australia is very supportive of training and developing the workforce. Recently, Premier Mark McGowan and Education Minister Sue Ellery announced the initiative to halve vocational training fees to stimulate training in job growth areas and support important sectors of the State’s economy. This initiative is driven through the WA Department of Training and Workforce Development (DTWD), and AIWT is one of the few Registered Training Organisations selected to deliver these funded programs. AIWT has had a long and successful history with DTWD and delivering traineeships.

Traineeships are an excellent way to combine training with work, enabling trainees to have a job, on-the-job training and formal study towards a nationally recognised qualification. Traineeship also provides hands on skills and work experience and can improve employment prospects and range of career choices. Anyone can do a traineeship, whether you are a school-leaver, re-entering the workforce or as an adult or matureaged person wishing to change careers. Traineeships can even start while the trainee is still at school. Benefits to the trainee:

• Earn a wage while you train • Learn on the job skills combined with off the job training • Receive a nationally recognised qualification which is also highly regarded overseas • Start a valuable step towards a rewarding career • Benefits of traineeships are not just limited to the trainees only. The employers also benefit from committing to a traineeship.

Benefits to the employer:

• Gain an employee who will learn the business your way • Increase employee productivity and skill levels • Gain motivated staff, increase employee satisfaction and retention • Gain a reputation for being a good employer

• Access potential federal and state incentive funding that exceeds the cost of training. • Access potential lower trainee wages during traineeship

Traineeships and other funded programs can be a definite bonus to companies that value good employees. At AIWT, we work closely with employers to customise training to suit the business and we can deliver training at the workplace, as we know how busy businesses can be. At AIWT, we offer Traineeships and Priority Industry Training (PIT) in:

• School of Business • Certificate II in Business (School Based Traineeship) • Certificate III in Business • Certificate IV in Business • Diploma of Leadership and Management

• School of Work Health and Safety • Certificate IV in Work Health and Safety • School of Language • Diploma of Interpreting (Mandarin-English)

• School of Education and Community Services • Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care • Diploma of Early Childhood Education and Care • Certificate IV in School Age Education and Care • Diploma of School Age Education and Care • Diploma of Community Services • School of Real Estate • Certificate IV Real Estate Practice (coming soon)

Please contact AIWT to find out more about Traineeships or about any of our courses. 请与AIWT联系, 以了解有关培训 或我们任何课程的

HOW TO TEACH CHILDREN TO RESPOND TO CLIMATE CRISIS AND CONTRIBUTE TO SUSTAINABLE LIVING?

N

inety five percent of young Australians believe that climate change is a serious problem. Four in five young people are anxious about climate change (APS, 2019). As a parent, can you imagine what our children’s lives will be like in about 20 years from now, if climate change continues to be a threat to humankind? As we experience more significant natural disasters, such as bushfires, extreme weather and drought due to higher levels of greenhouse gases, have we ever paused and pondered the fact that this earth will be the place where our children will be raising their children, our grandchildren? What can we do about this? This is an uncomfortable yet hugely relevant topic for the survival of our offspring.

The more informed we are, the better we are able at making good choices and instilling these concepts and values in our children. More importantly, if we model the proactive strategies to conserve our environment ourselves, they will pick up and learn from us. Climate change issues are no longer just a topic of discussion among politicians. It is something that everyone of us is responsible for. In doing that, we can provide our future generation with a safe and sustainable environment. Here are some strategies to teach and engage children to contribute to sustainable living and be environmental-friendly:

Discuss and inform – most children have some exposure at school about climate issues. If they raise concerns, do not be afraid to take it as a good opportunity to teach and discuss ways that you can do to make a difference as a family. Use simple and honest language to inform children, e.g. “We have bushfire because the climate is changing;” “The earth is getting hotter because we have used too much petrol, gas and plastic.” Acknowledge, reflect and guide –

the thoughts about global warming and its impacts on human suffering, increase in disasters and flora and fauna extinction, can be depressing. Acknowledge, reflect their feelings and help them to cope by taking action.

Research together – read books with them about climate change, e.g. ‘Down-to-Earth Guide to Global Warming’ by Laurie David, ‘The Magic School Bus and the Climate Challenge’ by Joanna Cole, and ‘The Lorex’ by Dr Zeuss. Go online to learn ways to support sustainable living in everyday life (see The United Nations 10 steps at home). E.g. choose to take public transport, when possible, to reduce carbon footprint. Use our own bag when shopping. Reduce use of plastic. Shop at the local grocery store. Have a vegetable garden. Recycle and reuse waste properly. Reduce intake of beef and lamb. Reduce the use of heating during winter.

Cultivate a love for nature – take kids out into nature and help them to appreciate the beauty of nature. Let them enjoy free and unstructured time in nature, e.g. picnic, camping, bird watching and bush play. This is actually

Chung Wah Quarterly Bilingual Magazine Autumn Issue

also good for their mental health!

Take action together – it is empowering and hope-inspiring for children to know that they too can make a difference. Share with them stories about Greta Thunberg. Join a family-friendly rally for the environment. Join community activities to take climate actions. Write to politicians and lobby climate change actions together with your children.

Build hope – sustainable living and taking action to help with climate change is a long journey. While our actions may not equate immediate outcomes in solving problems, it is important to help our children to see the purpose and value of protecting our future generation’s planet.

如何教孩子应对气候危机 并为可持续生活做出贡献?

95%

的澳大利亚年轻人认为气候变化是一个严重的问题。每五 个年轻人中有四个对气候变化感到焦虑(APS,2019)。如 果气候变化继续对人类构成威胁,那作为父母, 您能想象现在起大约20 年后,我们孩子的生活会怎样?正当我们经历着极为严重的自然灾害, 例如丛林大火,极端温室气体导致的极端天气和干旱,您是否停下来思 考过,这个地球将会是我们孩子继续抚养下一代的地方吗?我们该怎么 办?对于我们的后代来说,这是一个令人担忧但极其关键于我们下一代 能否生存的话题。 我们了解得越多,我们就越有能力做 出正确的选择,并将这些观念和价值观灌 输给我们的孩子。更重要的是,如果我们 示范主动性策略进行干预以保护我们自己 的环境,那么孩子或许会向我们学习。气 候变化问题不再只是政界人士讨论的话 题。这是我们每个人都应负责的事情。这 样,我们可以为我们的后代提供一个安全 和可持续的环境。 以下是一些策略,可以教孩子们参与 其中,为他们的可持续生活和环境友好做 出贡献:

讨论和告知 –- 大多数孩子在学校里 都能学习一些有关气候问题的知识。如果 他们提出了担忧,不要害怕将其作为教导 和讨论一家人如何来作出改变的好机会。 使 用简单 和诚实的 语言来 告 知孩 子,例 如“因为气候在变化,我们有丛林大火” ; “地球变得越来越热,因为我们使用了

太多的汽油、天然气和塑料”。

认同,反映和引导 –- 关于全球变暖 及 其 对人 类苦难,灾害增加 和动 植物灭 绝的影响的想法可能令孩子感到沮丧。认 同,反映他们的感受并通过采取行动帮助 他们应对。

共同研究 –- 与他们一起阅读有关气 候变化的书籍,例如Laurie David的《温 室效应的朴实引导》,Joanna Cole的《 魔术校车与气候挑战》和Zeuss博士的《 洛雷克斯》。上网学习如何在日常生活中 支持可持续生活的方法(请参阅联合国在 家中的十个步骤)。例如: 尽可能选择乘坐 公共交通工具以减少碳耗用量;购物时自 带环保袋;减少使用塑料;在附近的杂货 店购物;在家开辟菜园;妥善的做废物回 收和重用;减少牛肉和羊肉的摄取量;减 少在冬季时使用暖气。

27

培养对大自然的热爱– - 让孩子们进 入大自然,并帮助他们欣赏大自然的美。 让他们在大自然中享受自由时间,例如野 餐,露营,观鸟和丛林娱乐。这实际上对 他们的心理健康也有好处! 共 同 采 取 行 动 – - 这使 孩 子 们 知 道 他 们 也可以有所 作 为,这 对 他 们 来说 是 一种赋权和启发。与他们分享有关Greta Thunberg的故事。加入家庭友好的环保 聚会和游行。参加社区活动以采取气候行 动。写信给政客,并与您的孩子一起向政 府请愿一些气候变化行动。

建立希望–可持续的生活并采取行动 帮助应对气候变化是漫长的旅程。尽管我 们的行动可能无法等同于解决问题的立竿 见影,但重要的是要帮助我们的孩子了解 为下一代保护地球的重要意义和价值。 References 参考

Bone Health 骨骼健康 文:Elvie Yap/ Rongsen Lee 叶俐廷 / 李荣参 译:Yves 若水

‘ It is estimated that one in three women and one in five men over 50 will suffer from a bone fracture due to osteoporosis’

“ 五十岁之后, 三分之一的女性 和 五分之一的男 性,预测会因为骨 骼疏松问题导致 发生骨折”

• 您有好好照顾骨骼健康吗? • 您是否饮食营养均衡?

• 您是否每天至少要在户外 让身体的一部分暴露在 阳光下10分钟,或者您 是否服用维生素D补充剂? • 您每天至少进行30分钟 的负重运动吗?

• 您每天食用乳制品还是 任何一种钙的补剂品吗? • 您每天喝少于两杯 酒精饮料吗? • 你避免吸烟吗?

在这种情况下,“是”的答案越多越好。 保持健康的体重,饮食营养均衡的饮 食,定期运动和晒日光,避免饮酒和抽 烟,都是我们可以做的所有事情,可以 使骨骼保持尽可能强壮。 大多数人一生都需要摄入大量良好的 钙,以确保骨骼健康,尤其是对于50岁 以上的青少年和成年人(参见框1)。

Bones and joints make up the skeletal system, an inner frame that supports the body. Babies are born with over 300 ‘soft’ bones, but as we get older, many fuse together. By the time one reaches the age of 25, the body will have 206 fully formed bones. Bones are strong and flexible enough to cope with a lot of pressure, but they sometimes break. Fortunately, they are always growing and repairing themselves. The broken bones are most commonly in the fingers, wrists and ankles.

Bones account for one sixth of our body’s weight and are five times stronger than a steel bar of the same weight. However, without proper care, it can lead to a brittle bone disease, osteoporosis.

骨骼和关节组成骨骼系统,是支撑身体的 内部框架。婴儿出生时具有300多个“软” 骨头,但是随着年龄的增长,许多骨头会融 合在一起。到25岁时,人体将拥有206个完 全形成的骨骼。 骨骼足够坚固和灵活,足以应付很大的挤 压,但有时会断裂。幸运的是,它们始终在 成长并自我修复。骨折的骨头最常见于手 指、手腕和脚踝。

骨骼占我们体重的六分之一,比同等重量 的钢强五倍。但是,如果没有适当的护理, 则可能导致脆性骨病,骨质疏松症。 骨密度通常在30到35岁左右达到顶峰,然 后才开始缓慢下降,但骨质疏松是骨骼密 度显着降低,从而使骨骼变薄,变弱并且更 容易骨折的情况。骨折之前通常没有任何 症状。 那么,您每天可以做什么来照顾您的 骨骼健康?

Bone density tends to peak around the age of 30 to 35, before starting to decline slowly, but osteoporosis is a condition where the density of your bones is significantly reduced, causing them to be thinner, weaker and more likely to fracture. There aren’t usually any symptoms until a bone breaks. So, what can you do each day to look after your bone health?

• Are you looking after your bone health? • Do you eat a nutritious, balanced diet?

• Do you go outdoors for at least 10 minutes each day with part of your body exposed to sunlight, or do you take vitamin D supplements? • Do you get at least 30 minutes of weight bearing exercise each day?

• Do you consume dairy each day or another form of supplementation for calcium? • Do you drink less than 2 standard drinks per day? • Do you avoid smoking?

In this instance, the more ‘yes’ answers you have, the better. Staying at a healthy weight, eating a nutritious, balanced diet, getting regular exercise and sunshine, and avoiding alcohol and cigarettes are all things that we can do to keep our bones as strong as possible. Most people need to eat plenty of good sources of calcium for healthy bones throughout life, especially for adolescents and adults over the age of 50 (see box 1).

Box 1: The recommended dietary intake of calcium is different for people of different ages and life stages. 对于不同年龄和生命阶段的人,饮食中建议的钙摄入量是不同的.

1,300 mg

Calcium per serve (mg) 每份钙(毫克)

One cup of milk, a 200 g tub of yoghurt or 200 ml of calcium-fortified soymilk provides around 300 mg calcium. Calciumfortified milks can provide larger amounts of calcium in a smaller volume of milk – ranging from 280 mg to 400 mg per 200 ml milk. 一杯牛奶,200克酸奶或200毫升钙强化豆浆可提供约300毫克钙。 强化牛奶可以在更少量的牛奶中提供更多的钙,范围为每200毫升 牛奶相等于280毫克至400毫克钙。

One cup of cooked spinach contains 100 mg, although only five per cent of this may be absorbed. This is due to the high concentration of oxalate, a compound found in spinach that reduces calcium absorption. By contrast, one cup of cooked broccoli contains about 45 mg of calcium, but the absorption from broccoli is much higher at around 50–60 per cent. 一杯煮熟的菠菜含有100毫克,尽管其中只有5%可以被吸收。 这是由于草酸盐含量高,草酸盐是菠菜中发现的一种降低钙吸收的化合 物。 相比之下,一杯煮熟的西兰花中含有约45毫克的钙,但西兰花中的吸收量要高得多,约为50-60%。 One cup or 260 g of tofu contains around 832 mg of calcium. One cup of tempeh contains around 868 g of calcium. 250 ml of calcium-fortified soymilk provides around 300 mg of calcium. 一杯或260克豆腐含约832毫克钙。 一杯豆含约868克钙。250毫升钙强化豆浆可 提供约300毫克钙 Half a cup of canned salmon contains 402 mg of calcium. 半杯鲑鱼罐头含402毫克钙 Fifteen almonds contain about 40 mg of calcium. 15颗杏仁含有约40毫克的钙。

One cup of calcium-fortified breakfast cereal (40 g) contains up to 200 mg of calcium. Half a cup of calcium-fortified orange juice (100 ml) contains up to 80 mg of calcium, and two slices of bread (30 g) provide 200 mg of calcium. Plant-based milks (oat, almond, rice, etc) may or may not be calcium-fortified, so it is important to check the label of these products if you intend to use them in place of regular dairy milk to boost your calcium intake. 一杯钙强化早餐谷物(40 g)含钙最多200毫克。 半杯含钙的橙汁(100毫升)最多 含80毫克钙,两片面包(30克)可提供200毫克钙。植物性牛奶(燕麦,杏仁,大米 等)可能会或可能不会加钙,因此,如果您打算使用它们代替常规乳汁以增加钙 的摄入量,则必须检查这些产品的标签,这一点很重要。

In addition to meeting the dietary requirements for healthy bone, weight-bearing exercise is one of the best ways to protect bones. It can also help to maintain bone density in people who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia. Any activity where your bones and muscles work against the force of gravity while standing is considered a weight-bearing exercise. Mix and match activities like walking, jogging, tennis, dancing and bush walking. To be on the safe side, if you are concerned, speak to your GP about a bone scan to prevent osteoporosis developing.

除了满足健康骨骼的饮食要求外,负重运动也是保护骨骼 的最佳方法之一。 它还可以帮助已诊断出患有骨质疏松症 或骨质减少症的人保持骨密度。 站立时骨骼和肌肉抵抗重 力作用的任何活动都被视为负重运动。 混合和比赛类运 动,如散步,慢跑,网球,跳舞和丛林漫步。 为了安全起见,如果您担心的话,请向您的GP咨询有关骨 扫描以防止骨质疏松症发展的信息。

Bones are living tissues made of collagen fibres filled with water and mineral salts like calcium phosphate that gives them rigidity and strength. Even when they have reached adult shapes and sizes, they constantly renew and remodel by resorbing old bone and rebuilding it anew. However, after reaching 30 years of age, females lose 8% of bone mass every ten years. For better bone health, there are five things we need to know about.

1. Calcium

Calcium has a primary role in building and maintaining bones. In adults, the total body calcium content is about 1kg, 99% of which reside in the skeleton.

On average, about 35% of calcium is absorbed from diet. Patients who cannot achieve an adequate calcium intake through diet may need additional supplementation. In general, calcium supplements >500mg are poorly absorbed, so doses higher than this should be given as divided doses. Calcium is also better absorbed with meals. However, some foods reduce calcium absorption, such as phytates (present in cereals, bran and soybeans) and oxalates (present in spinach, walnuts and rhubarb). Calcium supplements are usually well tolerated. The most common side effects are gastrointestinal upset, constipation, bloating and flatulence.

2. Vitamin D

Vitamin D has an important role in maintaining bones by promoting the absorption of calcium. Although some vitamin D is found in the diet (e.g. fatty fish and fortified milk), the primary source is from exposure to sunlight because dietary sources commonly provide less than 100IU (international unit) daily and are insufficient to protect against vitamin D deficiency.

The current recommended daily intake of vitamin D for preventing deficiency is 200IU for people aged 0-50, 400IU for people aged 51-70 or people with dark skin, and 600IU for people aged over 70. For patients with, or at risk of, osteoporosis, the recommended daily intake is 800-1000IU.

3. Exercise

Regular exercise stimulates the production of new bone tissue. High-impact exercises, such as aerobics, jogging or racquet sports, are beneficial; while weight-bearing exercises, including gentle yoga or tai chi, help to strengthen areas where the bone is stressed.

Australian guidelines recommend weight-bearing, muscle-strengthening and low-impact exercises for patients with osteoporosis. Resistance training (3-5 times a week) or regular walking (90-280 minutes a week) has shown to increase bone mineral density (BMD).

4. Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a ‘silent disease’. This condition remains without symptoms until a fracture occurs. In 2013, there was one osteoporotic fracture every 3.6 minutes in Australia and by 2022, there will be one osteoporotic fracture every 2.9 minutes.

It occurs due to deterioration of bone structure, loss of bone mass and changes in bone metabolism when we do not eat enough calciumrich foods or if we do not top up our vitamin D through diet or sunlight. It can also result from hormone changes in later life. It has become a major public health burden as it happens to one in every two women, and one in three men, over 60 who will have a fracture in their remaining lifetime.

5. Screening and lifestyle

At present, bone mineral density (BMD) measurement is the most convenient and accurate estimate of bone strength. Other than this, a healthy lifestyle minimises the risk of developing osteoporosis and prevents further bone loss and reduces the risk of secondary fractures.

保持骨骼健康的五件事 骨骼是身体的活组织,由充斥着水和 矿物质盐(如磷酸钙)的胶原蛋白纤 维所合成,使骨骼具有刚性和强度。 即使长成成人的体形和大小,他们也 会通过吸收旧骨并重新构建来不断更 新和重塑。然而,女性到了30岁以后, 身体的骨质密度就会每十年流失8% 。为了更 好的骨骼健康,我们需要了 解五件事。

1.钙

钙在骨骼的形成和维持中起主要作用。 在成年人中,体内总钙含量约为一公斤,其中 99%存积在骨架中。

平均而言,饮食中约吸收35%的钙。无 法 通 过饮 食 获 得足够 钙 摄 入 量 的患者可能 需 要 补充 额 外 的 钙元 素 。通常,钙 补充 剂 > 500mg意味着吸收差,因此应将高于此剂量 的剂量作为分剂量服用。膳食中的钙吸收也 更好。但是,某些食物会降低钙的吸收,例如 植酸盐(存在于谷物,小麦皮和大豆中)和草 酸盐(存在于菠菜,核桃和大黄中)。 钙补充剂通常耐受良好。最常见的副作 用是胃肠道不适,便秘,腹胀和肠胃气胀。

2.维生素D

维生素D通过促进钙的吸收在维持骨骼 方面具有重要作用。尽管在饮食中发现了一 些维生素D(例如高脂肪的鱼类和强化牛奶) ,但主要来源是暴露在阳光下,因为饮食来源 通常每天提供的食物少于100IU(国际单位) ,不足以防止维生素D不足的问题。

当前 建 议 的 每日 维 生 素 D 预 防 摄 入 量 为0 -50岁20 0IU,51-70岁或深色皮 肤的人 400IU,70岁以上的人群600 IU。骨质疏松症 患者或高风险人士,建议每日摄入高达8001000IU。

3.锻炼

定期运动会刺激新骨组织的产生。有氧 运动、慢跑或壁球运动等高影响力锻炼是有 益的;轻柔的瑜伽或太极拳等负重运动有助 于增强骨骼受压区域。 澳大利亚(健康)指南建议骨质疏松症患 者进行负重,肌肉增强和低冲击运动。阻力 训练(每周3-5次)或定期散步(每周90-280 分钟)已显示会增加骨矿物质密度。

4.骨质疏松

骨质疏松症 是一种“ 隐 形 疾 病 ”。这种 情况可一直没有症状的保持着,直到发生骨 折。2013年,澳大利亚每3.6分钟发生一例骨 质疏松性骨折,到2022年,每2.9分钟将发生 一例骨质疏松性骨折。

当我们没有吃足够的富含钙的食物,或 者不通过饮食或日晒补充维生素D时,就会发 生这种情况,这是由于骨骼结构恶化,骨骼质 量下降和骨骼代谢变化所致。它也可能源于 晚年荷尔蒙的变化。它已经成为主要的公共 卫生负担,每两名女性中就有一名,而三名男 性中就有一名,超过60岁的人在其剩余寿命 中会骨折。

5.筛查和生活方式

目前,骨矿物质密度测量是最方便,最准 确的骨强度的方法。除此之外,健康的生活方 式可将发生骨质疏松症的风险降到最低,并 防止进一步的骨质流失并降低继发性骨折的 风险。

Osteoporosis is a very common condition that occurs in the ageing population, and approximately a quarter of women suffer from osteoporosis after menopause. This is a chronic, progressive disease with no symptoms at an early stage. People may think that symptoms, such as backache, could be a problem of other health conditions. In some cases, patients do not discover they have severe osteoporosis until they encounter a bone fracture incident. The clinical manifestations of osteoporosis are summarised as follows: constantly having back pain during the early stage of osteoporosis, becoming shorter physically, hunchback, fractures, and decreasing selfindependence in performing daily routines. TCM believes that osteoporosis is caused by the weakness of the spleen and kidney, as well as having liver stagnation symptoms. The congenital condition of the kidney and the deterioration of the spleen as we age, may affect the absorption and transformation function of important nutrients, such as calcium, to our bones.

Dr Julia FU is a practitioner in traditional Chinese medicine. She graduated from the Anhui University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China in 1983, and has 36 years of experience. 傅绪琼中医师 - 1983年毕业于5年制中国安徽中医药大学, 从事中医临床已有36年工作经验。

中医如何防治骨质疏松症

骨质疏松症是进入老年期非常普遍发生的病症,约1/4的妇女在停 经后患有骨质疏松症。这是一种慢性,渐进性的疾病,早期没有什 么症状,即使出现腰酸背痛等症状,也会被误认为是其它问题,甚至 有些人是在发生骨折之后才发现自己患有严重的骨质疏松症。

骨质疏松症的临床表现概括起来 有:早期常有腰酸背痛,身高变矮,驼 背,骨折,生活能力下降等。

中医认为骨质疏松症是由于脾肾 两虚为主因,兼有肝郁血阻所造成。 “ 肾为先天之本”, “脾为后天之本”。 先天不足,后天失养,均可影响骨骼 的钙物质的吸收和转化等功能。 中医如何防治骨质疏松症呢?

注重预防。

中医预防是“不治已病,治未病” 。骨质钙的储存是从青少年时期开始 的,成年以后,钙的储存逐渐减少。 所以在青少年发育阶段就要大量丰富 地储存体内的钙。要多运动,平衡饮 食,多吃富含钙的食物。在青少年期 就使体内钙的储存充足,这是第一重

医疗咨询 MEDICAL INFORMATION

How does Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) help in preventing osteoporosis?

要的预防措施。

健脾补肾是中医防治骨质疏松症 的原则。在中医师的指导下服用中药, 以弥补先天的肾不足和后天的脾运化 功能低下。但体质正常的青少年则无 需服中药,用食疗加运动即可。 进入老年或更年期后,在医生的 指导下,适当服用维生素D + 钙片,以 平衡钙的流失。 对于已确诊有骨质疏松症的人, 就需要看中医,辨证施治地用中药调 理一段时间,这在研究中和临床上都 证明了是有效果的。

在日常生活和保健方面,每天坚 持走路40分钟左右,每天接触阳光在 15 分钟以上。食谱要多而杂,少吃太 甜和太咸的食物,咖啡也要少喝。

How does TCM help in preventing osteoporosis? 1) Focus on prevention. In the TCM prevention theory, ‘we treat those who do not have the disease’. Our bones start to store calcium since adolescence, and as we grow, calcium storage gradually decreases. Therefore, in the adolescent development stage, a large amount of calcium should be stored in the body. Exercise more, eat a balanced diet and eat more calcium-rich foods. Adequate calcium storage in adolescence is the first important precaution. 2) Invigorating the spleen and the kidney is the principle of traditional Chinese medicine in preventing and treating osteoporosis. Take some traditional Chinese medicine under the guidance of a TCM practitioner, in order to improve the function and condition of the spleen and the kidney. Adolescents with normal body conditions do not need to take Chinese medicine. Eating the right diet and doing exercise will be sufficient. 3) Approaching old age or menopause, under the guidance of a doctor, do take vitamin D + calcium tablets appropriately to balance the loss of calcium.

4) For those who have been diagnosed with osteoporosis, they can look for a TCM practitioner to apply the right Chinese medicine treatment plan for a period of time to improve the condition. This has proved effective in research and clinically.

5) It would be good to walk for about 40 minutes every day and get exposed to sunlight for at least 15 minutes a day. In terms of dietary changes, try to have a good variety in your daily recipes, reduce food that contains high sugar and salt, and cut down on coffee intake.

he Perth Chinese New Year Fair was held on 2 February 2020 on James Street, Northbridge. The number of people at the fair was less than last year due to the impact of the coronavirus. Despite this, the stall of Chung Wah Community and Aged Care (CAC) had a jolly time. The game “Hope You Get Rich in the Year of the Rat” attracted hundreds of people. Participants could choose their favourite red packets from the 80 pinned on a board. People had a 100% chance of winning a prize from the red packets. Prizes, such as Year of the Rat T-shirt, New Year mouse plush toy and specially-designed Chung Wah auspicious banners and fans, were

very popular. The game strengthened the relationship between Chung Wah CAC and the community, whilst bringing luck and happiness to everyone. The game setting was related to the theme of “ Choice”. Through the game, Chung Wah CAC encouraged community members to make their decision proactively. Everyone has the right to take control of their lives. We saw that several senior citizens, who looked frail, also took part in this simple game, where they made their own decisions and “harvested” their luck. Meanwhile, Chung Wah CAC also raised funds for the bushfires in Australia. Chung Wah CAC is grateful to the community

On the Saturday morning of February 1, the Chung Wah Chinese School (CWCS) Rossmoyne held a preparatory meeting for the new school year and the first annual teacher training.

The meeting was chaired by Principal Xuanli MA. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, the policy of this epidemic prevention was the top priority discussion topic presented to the Chung Wah Chinese School Council, and made specific arrangement for these schools. The issue of student safety and protection was another main topic. Further strengthening and implementation of student safety measures will be the focus of the schools this year. During the professional training session, the teachers discussed the introduction and application of the online education platform “Education Perfect” in the CWCS Rossmoyne. Principal Ma introduced the update of Chinese language resources on the platform over the last 12 months, and explained to newly recruited teachers about the application of this platform by the school. Then the attendees conducted further discussion and experienced teachers shared their experiences using the platform in teaching enthusiastically.

On Sunday 2 February, the 2020 Perth Chinese New Year Fair was held on James street, Northbridge. The CWCS Rossmoyne presented a fascinating cultural dance performed by the school-based Lily Dance Troupe, created and directed by a school teacher, Lili Chen. In preparation for this cultural festival, the teachers spent their school vacation practising for this performance, participating mothers and grandmothers from the community were also passionately involved in the rehearsals during the hot summer. In addition, the presentation from the Kung Fu group and other dancing presentation also received an overwhelming response from the crowd at the event. Teacher Yu Zhou from CWCS Rossmoyne, Regina Lam, the Deputy Principal from CWCS Morley, and Chuwen Jing from CWCS Leeming co-hosted the performance presented by the Chung Wah Chinese Schools.

在专业培训环节,老师们针对网络教育 平台“Education Perfect” 在中华乐思中文 学校的引进和应用进行了讨论。马校长介绍 了该平台一年来的汉语资源更新情况,并向 新入职的老师讲解了我校的参与方式。之后 老师们展开了热烈的讨论,在平台应用方面 经验丰富的老师也热心分享了自己的体验。

On February 15, the first day of the CWCS Rossmoyne this year, the children welcomed the long-awaited Chung Wah Lion Dance performance. Accompanied by the sound of festive gongs and drums, the three male lions ran and jumped along with the drums, and from time to time they leaned over to let the children touch their big furry ears. Many children surrounded the lion and stuffed the red envelope symbolising auspicious blessings into the lion’s big mouth. The glittering eyes of the children were full of joy, and the fear of the coronavirus was swept away by the cheerful sound of gongs and drums and the laughter of the children.

Chen Meili, He Ying, and Liu Qi and Principal Xuanli Ma also organised a variety of children’s art and craft activities at the cultural festival.

2020年2月2日星期六上午,中华乐思中 文学校举行了新学年开学前准备会和年度第 一次教师培训。 会议由马烜历校长主持,鉴于今年的新 冠疫情,马校长首先传达了中华中文学校理 事会的防疫方针,并针对本校情况作了具体 布置安排。这次会议还讨论了学生安全保护 问题。学生安全措施的进一步强化和实施将 是学校今年的工作的重点。

A Happy Start for the New School Year at Perth School Students started a new school year on 15 February 2020 at Chung Wah Chinese School (Perth), located at Perth Modern School. On top of the Pre-Primary, Year 1, Year 2, Upper Primary and adult classes, the school has again offered dancing and martial arts programs to students for extracurricular activities after the Chinese lessons each Saturday morning. On the first day, students sang together songs of a Chinese New Year theme, which brought a festive atmosphere to the school. Teachers also guided students to do handicraft, according to the Chinese zodiac, and introduced the cultural background for them to better understand Chinese traditions.

Ms Juan Liu, the Principal, celebrated the New Year with students by giving each of them a red packet and practised some useful Chinese phrases with them.

Ms Liu reminded parents that the Chinese lessons start at 9:00am on Saturday during the school term, and students can arrive a few minutes early to settle down and get ready for their learning. During the recess from 10:10am to 10:30am, students have their fruits or snacks before playing at the playground (under supervision). Parents should ensure that the students complete their homework, stationery and fruits/ snacks are prepared for the recess, and drink bottles are packed in the school bags. We wish all students a productive new school year!

Chung Wah Chinese School with four campuses located in Leeming, Morley, Rossmoyne and Perth support and welcome Chinese language enrolments and cultural extra-curricular activities throughout the year and look forward to meeting and greeting new parents and students at all times!
