Hello from Amoy city, P.R.China

Hi, I'm an IT engineer in Amoy city, Fujian province, P.R.China. I work in a company of ABInbev.
I wonder if I am the only registered Chinese user in this forum. My English is poor, so if you see any grammatical mistakes or misspelt in my posts, please tell me, so I can improve my English. Thank you

Amoy city (pronunounced as Xiamen in Chinese) is a beautiful island city located in southeast China. There's a road about 60 km length around this island, with beautiful landscape, comfortable for riding.

This post costs me more than 20 minutes. Poor my English. Anyway, I'd like to make some friends in this forum, and improve my English. Any questions and communications will be pleasure.

Here's my ride.

Ni hao/hello! Nice bike and scenery.

Chinese language class. Hope to continue
next year and also visit China again
Zai jian/bye.

Ah, I forgot about the blocked websites by the Chinese government. When I was in Nanjing University
some of the IT people told me there was a way around, I'm sure a resourceful fellow can ask around;
hopefully without getting in trouble with the censors The video I posted was from my visit to Shanghai
and Zhouzhang.

Thank you for saying that. My boss, director of our company, is an Austrian and cannot speak Chinese. And I have some difficulties on communicating with him. That's why I decide to improve my English. And the way I choose is to find a forum aboard and interesting me, read and talk on it. So, you're all my English teachers

Another thing is about my bike. My bike was hit by a car in 3rd Feb. When I was riding through a street, a taxi parked beside the road opened its left front door suddently. I braked too hard and the front wheel locked, and the rear wheel drifted to the center of street. And a car following too closed hit me. Thank god I didn't hurt, but the rear rim was distorted. The taxi driver pay me 200 RMB(about $30) for this accident he caused.

I cannot find a rim with the same silver color in local bike shop, so I bought one on Taobao.com(a similar website with Ebay), and repaired my bike after Chinese Spring Festival holidays.
