Every year I fly to Hong Kong and dedicate around one week of my September to The Shaw Prize
The Shaw Prize, established in 2002 under the auspices of Sir Run Run Shaw, honors individuals
who have achieved significant breakthroughs in academic and scientific research or application,
and whose works have resulted in a positive and profound impact on mankind.
To know more about the "Nobel of the East," visit The Shaw Prize website here.
Or read my previous posts here, here and here.
Now on its 10th year already. How time flies!
As always, I want to lie down and roll around the floral centerpiece. Lol!
Hong Kong Chief Executive CY Leung graced the event and presented the awards to
each of the six Shaw Laureates.
