Happy 101 Birthday to Father Mallin

  

Father Mallin turned 101 years old on September 13, 2014.
Every year, Wong Hin-shing sends a birthday card to Father Mallin on behalf of Class of 61.
The hand-written reply from Father Mallin himself is amazing.

《A Wedding Couplet》__ Yu Fong-ying

Background

Our elder son Jason got married to Miss Florence Lau on July 26th 2014 in Vancouver. For that occasion, I composed a Chinese wedding couplet with the help of a friend and then asked another friend who is a calligrapher to write it out in Chinese ink on red paper. Then I hung it in on the wall of the dining room in our house a week before the wedding day. I also prepared some explanatory notes for those who wanted them, as below.

Some thoughts that motivated the writing: Jason plays the flute and the piano, and Florence plays the piano and the violin to performance level. The allusion to the soaring dragon was the suggestion of a friend, but I avoided too many allusions to the classics, making it easier for those not fluent in classical Chinese. The reference to a fine home is also an approving remark referring to the fact that the young couple had taken out a mortgage on a townhouse before getting married. The double meaning of “accompany” was deliberate. Altogether I aimed to create a lively musical mood.

It was detected early, incidentally, successfully operated on but it recurred almost immediately after recovery from the operation, with peritoneal seedlings and difficulty in eating. He was in Queen Mary’s Hospital for more than 6 months.
