1. Description of Our Community
A flowing bright community─Tuen Mun. Since the beginning of Hong Kong, Tuen Mun changes and changes time to time. Before there is official history of Tuen Mun, it was just a lonely place of a out port, people who lived here were having a very easeful and colorless life. No sport and funny activities as well. However, basic infrastructure on transportation like Western Railway of Kowloon Canton Railway (KCR), education (over 30 kindergarten, primary school, secondary school and a well-known university ) and entertainment like “Red House”, etc.. had brought such a small town growing up to be a wonderful, entertained, intelligent, educational and cultural community.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Problems We Had to Overcome A. The digital camera of the resolution we own was very low, so the photograph was not very clear. B. During March, all of our team members were having the examination, thus we didn’t have enough time to collect information and construct the web site. C. It took much time on meeting to compromise members’ agreement on information collected The project works done among our team members are also time consuming to integrate. D. Our team member didn’t have experience before on building such an informative homepage about our community.
Our solution: A. A digital camera of higher resolution was borrowed from school. We also make use of powerful graphic design software to beautify the photos taken. B. We tried to shorten the time on building web site and hoped we can finish it by the middle of the March to minimize its affection on our academic studies. C. Since we got bifurcation during the project discussion, all members of our team try their best to complete their works in school instead of doing at home. Consequently, bifurcation has been decreased together with improving our friendship. D. In this competition, our advisory teacher, Mr. Yeung Tai Shing, has given us a lot of opinion, support and encouragement. Here we strongly express our great thanks to him. In the other hand, we also have to thank the new technology in the human being. We couldn’t finish all the works by 21st March without those powerful software.
