For Immediate Release: Dr. David Lam’s Blossoming Vision for Vancouver
Pacific Rim Magazine, to be distributed May 9 in the Globe and Mail, will be featuring Dr. David Lam, former lieutenant-governor of British Columbia, and his cherry-tree vision for Vancouver.
In childhood, Lam started selling flowers in a small open-flower market in Kowloon, Hong Long. Since then, his love for flowers, specifically cherry blossoms, has continued to grow exponentially. His newest contribution to the city he adores and calls his home is a plan to accentuate Vancouver’s beauty from the inside out.
With the help of the Vancouver Park’s Commission, and the inspirational vision of Lam, Vancouver could very well become the West Coast’s cherry blossom capital. To Lam, cherry represents a philosophy of visible and invisible wealth — the fragility and limitations of time, with which one has a duty to embrace life, to attain balance, and to bring happiness, contentment, and joy to others.
Every year, Publishing students from Langara College collaborate to create Pacific Rim Magazine, completely designed, written, and produced by the students, in conjunction with instructors, staff, and assistance from the college. Other features include: Blepharoplasty (double-lid eye surgery), the esthetics of Japanese furniture, Zen garden how-tos, the Rosetta Project (documenting the worlds' languages), and an environmental assesment and comparison of Pacific Rim countries.
PRM goes to 17,000 Globe and Mail readers and is also available to subscribers and at the Langara College bookstore.
