Lock the type object in the layers panel by expanding the layer one by clicking on the triangle to the left of the layer name.
The select all and go to View>Guides>Release Guides
the art is actually been turned into guides and they have to be ordinary paths.
The center will fill with green do not worry about it.
Select all if not already selected and then click on the Live Paint But and now you will be able to fill it.
Also, if you have Lock Guides checked, by default, make sure you uncheck View>Lock Guides before you try to do the View>Guides>Release Guides.
Thanks all for the answer. They are great!
The only problem for me now is to fill out the inner-part. Since the guide I used is only a semi-circle. So that I can only fill the semi-circle with colour.
How can I fill the inner part like Wade_Zimmerman did,
One more problem... if I place the Text on top of the logo, the text cannot be view, as it is in the bottom layer of the logo, as a result, even I changed colour of the text, it still cannot be viewed. How can I cope with that?
In the Layers panel, make a new layer which should be above the original in the layer list. Select the text and a small square should appear at the right side of the first layer. Click and drag the small square to the new layer. Your text should now be above the logo.

You seem to be complicating this a little more than it need be.
here's video of what I did always keep it simple.
As for what you did was possibly open another file or took an extra step.
But to do what you want is a very simple matter you should be able to figure this out yourself but i am going to try to show how you are making it comlicated rathe than easy.
First you fill one part with the color you want then
you fill the other part with the same color
Thanks very very much Wade_Zimmerman.
This is the best answer I had from forums.
Cheers & Regards,
