Articles and News of Class 1968
“I was in UK for a wedding and made a stop in Dublin to pay respect to my beloved Fr Mallin’s father Michael Mallin. For those of you who are not aware, Michael Mallin was an IRA leader in the unsuccessful 1916 Rising. He was executed by the Brits. But the Rising drastically changed public opinion and led to the Irish independence in 1920. I thought they honoured him by naming a train station after him. Little did I know he was a big hero in Dublin and I saw his name and plagues everywhere. Including a hero’s resting place in one the most famous cemeteries in Dublin. I am so glad we made this trip. I can cross this off my bucket list now. See more pictures here.”

Congratulations to John Wong, Professor and Director of Division of Medical Physics in the Department of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is receiving the Life Time Achievement Award by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine at the annual meeting at Denver this summer.
He left WYK in summer, 1967 and continued his studies in Toronto. He obtained his PH.D. in Medical Biophysics in 1982.
His main interest at WYK was soccer, missing out his Class Photos twice in his four years at school. Click here to see his years at WYK.
"Funny, I can talk equally fondly about my soccer life as my professional life." he said.
[This poem by Ming-Yee's father was published in a newspaper when Ming-Yee was about to leave for the States after Form 6 (69). I could not find the clipping since I moved into an apartment three years ago.
Thanks to the 68/69 boys inviting me to their gathering in LA this month, I met Ming-Yee for the first time after all these years. This wonderful poem showing 舐犢之情 comes back to me.] ~ Anthony Ho

Ng Kam Yin of Seattle was in town. He had not seen Bill Fok, Victor Tong and Tony Chiu for years. He had not met Mr. Ho since the WYK days. At a dinner on Friday, August 23, hosted by the three locals, there were happy stories about their youth days at school. Nicknames were the threads recalling old-time friends. There were, of course, talks on their children who are now professionals. They sighed that there were generation gaps. Mr. Ho reminded them that they were young and happy once.
Victor flew in from New York and went direct to dinner and left for New York immediately afterwards to attend some business the next day. Bill would take care of Kam Yin over the weekend and send him off on Monday. Click the image to view the dinner photos. More photos would be uploaded after his visit.

"Tony Chiu and Victor Tong will be visiting me this weekend 2013/07/20. Will round up Desmond Wong and Ng King Kong, Henry (He moved to Texas and coincidentally happened to be in town, and I ran into him outside my office last week). We will drive up to Milwaukee where Tony, Victor and I used to work during college and immerse ourselves in reminiscence. Tony and I used to be roommates in Milwaukee before he went back to HK after college. Victor and I worked at the same place but at different time, The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee." ~Hilary
"Ng King Kong , Henry joined us for dinner the night before but not theMilwaukee trip). Pic with the five of us at dinner Sunday night. Pic with Maders Restaurant as back ground was our lunch at a pretty famous German restaurant in Milwaukee. The one with the lake view is the restaurant where Tony used to work as waiter during college time. We also visited the restaurant where Victor and I worked at which is also in Milwaukee. Tony was my room mate that summer in Milwaukee." ~Hilary
"Thanks Hilary for organizing our 48 hour program and the rest of you for traveling great distances to visit us in Chicago. The fellowship was superb and I for one savored the opportunity to catch up on each other's personal and professional lives for the past 43 years. The odds of this happening given the elapsed time and geographic distance involved is so ridiculously remote that I believe we had better odds to win the lottery. I have never bought a lottery ticket before but I think the five of us should definitely channel our collective good karma to buy some soon to see if we can monetize on our collective good fortune." ~Desmond
