I WISH YOU A RADIANT NEW YEAR
I got my hands full with many events last year, but this year, I will challenge new projects and try actively advance cooperation with overseas.
Perhaps the biggest challenge will be the Film Project. I’m pretty excited to try this out. I hope this project will be made public soon.
Thank you for your continuous support to NEONTETRA.
May the year 2010 bring you Happiness and Success.
Wishing You a HAPPY NEW YEAR.
