Wooww it's been a year since I've logged in?! I guess you could say that the forum is on a hiatus for now. I don't know about everyone else, but I've been caught up in my job search and finishing my classes so I can graduate (which I finally did this year!).
If you want to make new topics or add new info about Xiao Gui's current activities, I wouldn't mind. I've been trying to keep myself up-to-date through his Facebook fanpage. If you want, I can post what they share over here. Or if you have a Facebook account, you can like their page.
I hope this answers your question
P.S. I just realized you also asked about a birthday gift for Xiao Gui, sorry! I don't know if we can. The last time I think it was xoxogui
who helped deliver the birthday gift (at a signing event) after receiving everybody's birthday wishes. You can try sending her a message. Or you can create a topic here (or maybe a group survey on Facebook?) asking if anyone is interested in sending him a birthday gift this year. There's still time!
