A trainee said, "Old people learn new things very slowly. But they are very nice and patient. Now I have grasped some basic techniques. Let me try to send one message to someone else."

Yoga and SMS are only two of the many courses provided here...the membership price is just 80, which is very cheap for the locals.

Macao resident Mr. Chou said, "I never worry because there's nothing to worry about. I have a big plan traveling through the entire mainland."
