Articles and News of Class 1967 (Please also visit the Class of '67 Facebook)
David Tse Kwok-Shuen (67), an IT expert who happily retires in Sydney, was visiting in the New Year. Since graduation, he took up Taoist Kung Fu and Chi Gung and has been practicing this martial art all these years. Relaxing in his chair at least 5 ft away from the table, he pointed his right index finger at a standing bi-fold paper menu for two seconds or so. Nothing happened. Then, after 2 seconds, the bi-fold paper fell on its back! The demonstration was performed twice, both successfully. David’s recent interest is in Kendo (日本劍道).
[It has been known that some wahyanites are great Kung Fu masters. We would be pleased to have updates of their interests.]

In the spring Edward Chung and I were planning a trip to Jiu Zhai Gou, the scenic spot in Sichuan province bordering Tibet. Joseph Lau in Hong Kong expressed interest in joining even though he had been there before. Then Peter Chau and Joseph Chow also joined. Joseph Chow's wife Hilda and their two children also came along. We decided to meet in Hong Kong, staying for couple of days before heading to Chengdu.
Members from the classes of 66, 67 and 68 gathered for a dinner in honour of the visiting Joseph Chan on 26 November. Joseph, the President of Fairchild TV, was in town to officiate the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant.
Joseph Chan Kwok-Hung (1967), President of Fairchild Television, was one of the winter Olympic flame torch bearers in Vancouver. We are looking forward to seeing him in town to officiate the Miss Chinese Toronto Pageant 2009 later this month.
James Wan Koon-Ying visited us from Hong Kong in September with his wife Margaret. The class of 1967 threw a private dinner for him on the 23rd, which was followed by James’ birthday banquet on the 27th. A surprise guest at the banquet was the renowned WYK football star So Wai-Lum (蘇偉林) alias 細蘇 whom we have not seen for decades.
We were all delighted to have a chance of reminiscing the past years and learned from James tidbits on many fields which he is an expert on, including kung fu, feng shui, qi gong, Chinese medicine and his magnificent invention, the Topfit bricks 天風磚 while enjoying the sumptuous feast.
