My first visit to the JC Group office on Waterloo Road was on August 4th. I was invited there to meet with a JC Group staff member to arrange the events for the week. After asking the manager at my hotel to write down the address in Chinese for the cab driver, I got into a taxi and was on my way. I was pretty nervous; this was my first trip to the JC Office!

The first thing I noticed as the taxi pulled up was the huge banner of Chinese masks which hung on the front of the building. I could see it from my taxi as we drove up to the building! As I approached the gate, I could hear a lot of commotion on the other side of the wall. Rounding the corner, I entered the courtyard of the JC Offices and saw workmen everywhere. They were builiding a wall along one side. I noticed that a giant tire was actually being incorporated into part of the wall. It looked like it might be the tire from the huge machine Jackie drove in Mr. Nice Guy.

I gathered my nerve, took a deep breath, and approached the front door.

Here's what you see when you round the corner after entering the gate - the Waterloo Road offices of the JC Group!
