PlayAsia has been around for awhile, why not send them an e-mail and ask what version it is?
Sensasia has a version listed which shows the shipping origin as Hong Kong
(not sure if that would be the version you are looking for) but it is OOS at this time; you could also e-mail them and see if they will be receiving any more copies and if it is indeed the Hong Kong version.Have you checked anywhere yourself? Have you checked eBay? There are several versions listed there but since I don't know exactly what you are looking for perhaps you should do a little research yourself and see if you can find what you want.
Here's some info from one of the ones posted on eBay:BEIJING 2008 OLYMPIC GAMES OPENING CEREMONY DVD PART 1&2

and perhaps you can find what YOU
are looking for.I tried to help but you sure do not seem very appreciative.If you want the DVD bad enough you will find it with some research.
I've spent hours/days/weeks/even months looking for DVDs that I've wanted, eventually I find what I want, atlhough sometimes they may be too expensive and I have to pass.
Time to get off your butt and do a little work yourself instead of asking for help and then p*ssing on it. The information I've provided above will be the last I send your way, you're on your own as far as I'm concerned.
