In Memory of Yondani Butt

It is with a much saddened heart to report that a phone call from Roger Butt (Yondani's elder brother in Hong Kong) informed me that our beloved Maestro Yondani Butt was certified this morning by the hospital at 10:45 am this morning after going into a coma and had to rely on a breathing machine since 5 am this morning - 28th August 2014! 

According to info received, Butt's daughter Yolanda had a few words with her father while Butt was still conscious (hopefully that made him feel better) and she is now flying back to look after Butt's affairs arriving Hong Kong tomorrow Friday 29th August. I've asked Roger to tell her that should she need any assistance, do please give me a call!

What more can I say except 天妒英才, I think we should all 節哀順變吧 !

I am sure we will all miss him so very much! May he rest in God's arms in peace for eternity!

June Evening Meeting

Congratulations to Alex Mak who is now a member of 70+ Club.

He writes, "Dear all,

Since 17th June was my 70th birthday, I had "conveniently" scheduled our June gathering as a dinner on that date and shamelessly asked everyone to show their support to make it into an occasion to remember and cherish. My wish came true mostly because of the generosity of my two sponsors David Koo and Michael Leung - without whom the event would never have been the same. Thank you both from the bottom of my heart. True friends indeed.

Enough said - just click the image to view the photos and share our happiness on that most memorable evening !

Thank you everyone for participating and making it into such a huge success !  

My warmest regards to your all,

Alex"
