Writing Clear and Professional Emails

March 8, 2017


Email is the communication tool of choice for most of us in this digital age and are a great source of communication. It allows you to connect to other parts of the world and send messages or even propagate your business. The problem: most of us are drowning in emails and emails can be all too easily misunderstood. This is why business emails should be clear, concise and easy to understand. To help you take a better look at things, Prosperity Research Digital Agency (PRDA) takes the lead to solve your digital problems. With PRDA, you access all the key instruments to make your business a huge success!

According to recent reports by Sendmail and the Radicati Group; the average person using email for business receives and sends over 100 emails a day, and 64% of people have sent or received an email that caused unintended anger or confusion.  Demonstrating that writing clear, professional emails is extremely important to your business, and in life.  By writing clearly, you’ll become known as someone who knows what they want and who gets things done. Both of these are good for your business, and career.

So what does it take to write clear, concise, and professional emails?

Always indicate the purpose of your email in clear words so you can save yourself and the recipient from wasting time. Whenever you write, write about one thing at a time; it’s better to include less in emails than just stuffing it with unnecessary material. You can also try to take an emphatic view of your email and its interpretation, by developing “soft skills”. When you write emails, think about your words from the reader’s point of view, try adding a word or sentence of thanks- in general a friendly approach is best. Since you’re writing on professional terms, you can add your signature, title and contact information at end (rather than bragging about yourself in the lengthy intro!) if you’re writing someone for the first time.  Always remember to keep the structure simple and precise as possible by using short sentences, words or even paragraphs, limiting to five sentences.

Last but not the least; use active voice and proofread your email for corrections and redundant expressions. Need more assistance? Prosperity Research Digital Agency(PRDA) provides weekly content creation catered to your company, in English, Traditional or Simplified Chinese.

Living the Paleo Way

March 8, 2017


With so much information being tossed around about healthy eating habits, it can be hard to find the best path to follow. For the health conscious a Paleo diet might be the answer- with a whole range of health benefits to offer! Probably the best part about Paleo is that the food can be absolutely delicious and easy to prepare, especially when you include Omega-3 pork from Flodins.

The Nordic farming methods that are used by Flodins will produce tender pork, which is juicier and easy to cook. There is an option of eating grass-fed beef, but omega-3 pork has more health benefits to offer. The pigs at Flodins are fed with rapeseed as part of their meal plan. This was after the realization that this would increase the Omega-3 fatty acid content in the pork from these pigs; up to 4 times more compared to conventionally raised meat.  A diet rich in Omega-3 and low in saturated fat has been shown to have many health advantages, including a reduced risk of heart disease. By including Omega-3 pork in your a Paleo diet, you will eat meals that are deliciously healthy and allow you to enjoy real wellness, health, and fitness.

The Paleo diet is motivated by the meal plans that our ancestors ate back in the day. As such, an effective Paleo meal plan will not include sugars, grains, processed foods and dairy products. These food items do not add any nutritional value and are known to be a great health risk. Stay away from these foods since they are known to trigger diseases that will cause inflammation in the body. The Paleo diet thrives on fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seed, as well as healthy fats from nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, Omega-3 pork and grass-fed meat. Food is the source of energy and fuel for the body, and everything that you eat becomes part of all your cells, tissues, muscles and organs.


Pork is one of the most common types of meat in the world and by far Asia’s favorite meat. However, Flodins Omega-3 pork is rich in the fatty acid content due to their diet and the inclusion of rapeseed in the foods that the pigs eat. They use effective quality control measures known to enrich the nutritional value of the pork- the result of 5 years’ extensive research in partnership with selected farmers and Finnish research institutes, including the Natural Resources Institute Finland and University of Helsinki.


Omega-3 Pork is now available at these ParknShop Supermarkets: Kowloon Tong, Festival Walk – Discovery Bay Plaza – Stanley Plaza – Wan Chai, Hopewell Centre – Tai Tam, Hong Kong Parkview.

#GGHK2022 Partner: The Hong Kong Sailing Federation (HKSF)

March 8, 2017


By the deep blue sea, lies the city of Hong Kong, through which we hope the Gay Games will finally be entering Asia for the first time in their gaming history. The Gay Games have introduced the notion of unity on an international platform that reaches beyond all bounds of ethnicity, culture, sex, age and sexual preference. While Hong Kong has been bidding to host the Gay Games in 2022, the Hong Kong Sailing Federation(HKSF) stands ardently at its back. Both GGHK2022 and HKSF are intertwined due to the similarity in their interests and objectives.

As the Gay Games includes some adventures at sea, it’s important to make sure that everything goes according to the international guidelines; that’s where HKSF steps in.  As a proud partner, HKSF is affiliated to the World Sailing (ISAF), the Asian Sailing Asian Federation (ASAF) and the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China (SF&OC). Also, it entertains the interests of all the sailors in Hong Kong and recreational boating and yachting circles. Moreover, the Hong Kong Sailing Federation always decides and determines the eligibility and selection of participants and sailors representing in international sporting events like Olympic Games, Asian Games and now, the Gay Games.

You may have noticed that the logo of GGHK2022 includes a sail boat. The junk boat is iconic in China and in the region. The Gay Games Hong Kong 2022 logo symbolizes this sail boat with the colors of the LGBT+ community sailing through as one towards acceptance, love, freedom and diversity. It celebrates our life as part of the human race.  We would like to take you on a journey to enjoy Hong Kong! Come and sail together with us through Unity in Diversity.

AYO’s Tips to Play a Fearless Audition

March 8, 2017


Does this happen to you? When preparing for an audition, at first you are all pumped up and ready to face the music in high spirits. But just as you stand in front of the judges, your palms start to sweat, your hands begin to shake and your head gets heavy with all the pressure in your head. These are all signs of anxiety and fear- possibly blocking your musical fluidity and upsetting your audition. To combat this fear and anxiety, preparation is key. Here are a few tips from the Asian Youth Orchestra (AYO) to help eliminate bad audition symptoms and utilize the good ones to help you play and focus even better!

  • Music Preparation: This may seem like the most obvious statement ever but always prepare your music! A great start to eliminating fear in an audition is knowing you can play all of the repertoire on the list.
  • Eliminate all possible variables(within your control):  Worried you’ll sleep late and miss your audition? Set up a routine ahead of time and practice waking up at the time you need to for the week before your audition. Plan your travel time well, and leave room for any mishaps- get to your audition early rather than late.
  • Be prepared for the unexpected: Prepare ahead of time for variable situations- tell people in mock auditions to have you play things differently just to mix things up. (And really try to do whatever they say!) Have someone conduct you through a few excerpts in case the music director conducts you in the finals. Play with a fan blowing on you in case there is a bad draft. Basically try and get comfortable, just in case you encounter something bizarre.
  • Get mentally prepared: Hopefully you are catching on to the theme of preparation here, but it is key and preparing mentally may be the most important. Try to be motivated by the pursuit of improvement; rather than the pursuit of success. Fear of failure is a large part of why many experience fear and anxiety and by changing your focus to the pursuit improvement, you will find a huge shift in attitude- and hopefully a decrease in your fear and anxiety.
