Ladies and Gentlemen,
For the past four months, RMB City has been guided by the sage economic and artistic wisdom of our second mayor, AlanLau Nirvana. A time of recession can bring hopelessness and despair, but with AlanLau Nirvana and his “RMB City Stimulus Package” came encouragement, reflection, and creation. Our People’s Limbo project explored all of these feelings, and allowed RMB City to birth itself anew.
RMB City is now ready to experience new life, energy, and action. It will undergo a new phase of experimentation under the eclectic leadership of our new mayor Jerome Sans, a man of many different talents, who will also serve as the city’s master concierge. What new interpretations and ideas will he have in store?
Please join China Tracy and RMB City Management for a special afternoon ceremony. We will inaugurate Jerome Sans (SL: SuperConcierge Cristole), on his birthday, as our third mayor. In addition, we will introduce a preview of our upcoming “People’s Life” project. We sincerely invite everyone to share with us this new and exciting phase of RMB City development.
See you there.
