NOTE: We have extended the due date to make sure that we have enough time to make this project a complete success.  We could try to hurry the process, or take our time and do it right to produce some really great content for you guys.  And of course we want to make really tasteful, professional and memorable work so we have decided to extend the final date of project.

In the meantime, we have received tons of photos from all kinds of people coming from all kinds of places.  The response has been really great and inspiring!

To all you, “I’ll-do-it-tomorrow-kinda-people”, don’t wait!  You don’t wanna get left behind in the dust on this one – trust me.
