Acknowledgement
First off, let us grasp this very first part to express our sincere gratitude to our supervisor, Dr. Tracy Zhang – without whom we could not have completed such piece of honour project. We are truthfully thankful to have her always giving us continuous support and guide to come this far. She has been the kindest and most patient professor, teaching us from the very beginning till the very end of this project with her profound knowledge in Business Marketing. Once again, let us both thank you – your hardwork would not go unnoticed to us. May you have a very nice teaching journey in all the years to come with many more students benefiting! Very importantly, we also like to thank for all the respondents, especially those living far in the Mainland China ------- Nanjin and Guangzhou. Thank you very much for giving your helping hands to our project unconditionally. With respect to China such an ever-changing big land, without your help we could not have collected all the valuable data which, in turn, reflect very much the first-hand, real and current China situation. With all our hearts, let us thank our precious families for putting up with us turning on the computers in the middle of the nights, typing loudly on the keyboards and making too much noise for you all to fall sound asleep. Thank you very much for all the heart-wrenching support, love and care during our bumpy road to have this
