62: Dinner on 20150423

 "There are 10 photos taken during our April gathering lunch yesterday. 

The following made the event a bit more noteworthy : 

1) We welcomed Chris Liang Kit (CA, USA) who took the trouble to join us from Macau where he is presently doing his bi-annual voluntary work teaching English to nuns working at Caritas ! 

2) We used the joyful occasion to wish Happy Birthdays to our two classmates - Francis Ip and Cedric Lam - who have birthdays on the same day in April ! Happy Birthdays both, with many returns of the day ! Good health and God bless ! 

Needless to say, we took the opportunity to enjoy to the full this and every meeting of over half-a-century-old-friends, especially after recent events !  

Take care and all the best, 

Alex 

P.S. Silas Yeung was late and unfortunately not captured in any photos !"

《兩位學友離世有感》__劉楚鍵

兩位學友離世有感 

滄溟揚帆红霞照
夕陽美好祇恨少
回首向來乘風處
浪濤起伏付一笑

一樽茅台華髮聚
暢談往事論今朝
人去如露生如夢
何妨吟嘯橹慢摇

 Bill Mok, The Sensei

[The Other Side of Bill Mok (29 Nov 1944 - 30 Mar 2015)]

Bill was such a modest guy and few of us actually knew the what he had achieved in the world of Karatedo (空手道). Some of you even mistakenly thought that he practised 跆拳道 instead ! To put that matter straight, Bill practiced in dojo’s of the Hong Kong branch of Seigokan (正剛館) All Japan Karate-do Association (SAJKA) which is under Karate’s 剛柔流派.

Before I go any further, I knew Bill had started to learn Karate after I left Hong Kong in 1962 and here’s what he had achieved :-

“………. Two senior members of Seigokan took important roles in continental and world karate affairs. The late Jose Martins Achiam7th Dan (1944-2008) …and Bill K.S. Mok (7th Dan) was an Executive Committee Member of World Karate Federation 2004-2010 and Secretary General of Asian Karatedo Federation 2008-2010.”

While it is difficult laymen to know exactly what a Karate Black Belt 7th Dan means – but perhaps it would help to bear in mind that in the whole world, there is ONLY ONE Karate Black Belt 9th Dan ! 

Bill was also deeply involved in Seigokan HK Branch affairs and on this page, you can see his whole Seigokan Karatedo Biography:

Here an excerpt from Wikipedia on what Seigokan is :-

Seigokan (正剛館) is the Goju-Ryu Karate-do organization founded in 1945 by Seigo Tada (1922-1997) Hanshi (8th Dan). With its Hombu Dojo (headquarters) in Himeji, Japan, the Seigokan All Japan Karate-do Association (SAJKA) — its official name — has branches in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China (including Hong Kong and Macau), India, Italy, the Philippines, Portugal, Sri Lanka, the United States, England, Chile, Colombia and Venezuela.

Master Seigo Tada was a pupil of Chojun Miyagi and the head of the Karate Club at Ritsumeikan University. In the 1960s, Seigokan was considered the most important Goju-Ryu Association (Kai-Ha) in Japan, with more than 200,000 members.

………. Two senior members of Seigokan took important roles in continental and world karate affairs. The late Jose Martins Achiam 7th Dan (1944-2008) …andBill K.S. Mok (7th Dan) was an Executive Committee Member of World Karate Federation 2004-2010 and Secretary General of Asian Karatedo Federation 2008-2010.

Mok Kwok Sing, Bill ('62) R.I.P.

We were sad to learn that Mok Kwok Sing, Bill passed away peacefully on Monday, March 30, from complications of leukaemia in Brisbane, Australia.  Bill went back to Hong Kong to attend Class 62 gatherings regularly in the past years.  His last visit was in December last year.  He will be greatly missed by his many friends in Hong Kong.

We offer our condolences to his family.

新樂懷舊 Dim Sum Gathering (62)

 

 

After I learned that 新樂酒樓(Nathan Road near Jordan) will be closing it's doors (see attached article) later this month after 55 years (I am sure quite a few of you ate there when in WYK - I did), a number of us decided to have dim sum there once more for nostalgic reasons. During our leisurely lunch, Cedric Lam mentioned that Anthony Lam (Vancouver) is in town and so I called him immediately and he managed to join us too - albeit at short notice! Needless to say, a good time was had by all as witnessed by the photos ! (Sorry about the bad resolution of the pix taken by cell phone).~Alex_2015-03-10.
