From Wikipedia: Bamboo has also long been used as scaffolding; the practice has been banned in China for buildings over six storeys but is still in continuous use for skyscrapers in Hong Kong.

I was amazed that bamboo is used as scaffolding in skyscrapers in HongKong. 
Maybe, because of its innate strength, endurance and pliability.

In Chinese cultures, the bamboo is the symbol of the gentleman with features of being upright, with  tenacity and a hollow heart, meaning with an open heart and without arrogance or prejudice.

Integrity, elegance and simplicity are the other characteristics of the bamboo and not necessarily obvious physical strength.

Still with the Chinese tradition, the bamboo bends with the wind and does not break; it represents a man who bends with the adversities of life and endures.

Let us be like the bamboo, simple but elegant,  mentally strong and with an open heart and most of all, upright, perserverant and tenacious.
