One of the highlights of this recent trip to HKG was my homecoming visit of the WYK campus. Riding the new elevator to go upstairs to the Fathers’ Quarters turned out to be a treat. Viewing from high grounds, the man-made grass football field glowed with green grandiose. Since I graduated, several flights of structures had been added onto the wing that housed the canteen. In 1967, I recall paying 75 cents for a bowl of Ngau Nam Fun. Two weeks ago, I paid $30 for a lunch box containing BBQ Duck Breast and Rice. That’s classy!
It being Photo Day and a warm, bright morning, even Fr. Harold Naylor came out of hibernation to sit with me in the sun for a cheerful chat. Fr. George Zee was busy as ever but still managed to run quietly to his appointments as he’d lost his voice. Whereas Fr. Stephen Chow had apparently borrowed some of my gray hair ever since he had assumed administrative duties of the two Wah Yans. It was not that long ago when the latter had stayed in my humble home as a house guest. Time flies.
Meeting my old classmates for dinner turned out to be great fun. Many of my buddies and I grew up in F5A Arts, F6 Arts (of which I was Class Prefect) and F7 Arts together under the direct supervision of the late Mr. Francis Kong. The experience was unique. I am earnestly looking forward to attending our 50th Graduation Reunion in November this year.
Returning home on a ten and a half hour flight seemed like a breeze. The unusual cold winter at YVR brought me back to reality. My wife, who picked me up from the airport, asked me what I would like for dinner. Still thinking of my favourite teacher, I replied: “An apple, please.”

It is with a heavy heart that I advise you of the passing of our dear classmate Patrick on Sunday August 21, after a brave battle with cancer. May he rest in peace.
There will be a mass at 8 pm on Sep 6 at the Holy Cross Church. Funeral will be at the same church at 10 am on Sep 7, followed by procession to Chaiwan Crematorium. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for charity donations in Patrick’s name. The family is also organizing a bus to the crematorium followed by lunch. Those who wish to reserve seat on the bus and the lunch, please contact me and I shall assist in the sign up.
Yours very truly

Please accept my apology for answering this chain of emails so late. I was having too much fun in Toronto and Montreal and got so tired every night that I decided to write back after I get home. I finally got home last night at about 10pm.
The luncheon on June 17 was a great experience for me. I have never met with so many long time friends except meeting family uncles and aunties in the past. It brought back so many fond old memories from the past. No matter how many times I go back to Hong Kong for visits, which my wife and I do frequently, I cannot get the feeling as I had experienced during the June 17 lunch. Thanks everyone for making special efforts to be present at this meeting. I really appreciate and treasure the time we have together. Let's hope we can do this more often.
By the way, all of us haven't meet for close to 40 years, right? I met with Victor Chow twice within the last week. After lunch, we ran into each other in the Bayview Village shopping mall on Sunday, June 19. My wife and I had enjoyed plenty of good Chinese food while in Toronto. We also enjoyed visiting many scenic places in Montreal and explored the city by ourselves. Joe Wong, you cannot be a grandpa overnight! Work hard on it though!
Special thanks to Raymond for taking the time to contact everyone and arranging for this lunch.
If anyone of you stop by San Francisco Bay Area in the future, please do not hesitate to let Andrew and myself know so that we can get together again.
