《2016 Spring Dinner》__ Fred Yip (71)

 The WYKAAO Spring Banquet was held on Saturday, April 9 at a restaurant in Richmond Hill, Ontario, attended by sixty people, including our former vice-principal, Mr. Anthony Ho and several alumni from other schools.

 Jeff Mah, our President, started the opening remarks by giving a quick run-down on past activities since the Annual General Meeting last October and the future events in the next several months. Recent past happenings included a Memorial Mass for Father Anthony Farren, S.J., a Joint-School Valentine Ball, the Table Tennis Team Tournaments and the Wino Gatherings. Upcoming events comprize a Summer Outing (location to be decided), the Student Ambassador Programme (Toronto Host), Joint-School Golf and Fun Day, Terry Fox Charity Run, and a free, private viewing of a new Hong Kong movie on June 26 (She Remembers/He Forgets:哪一天我們會飛 ), which was shot on location at our Waterloo Road campus. For those who would like to watch the movie, early booking is advisable as seating is limited and would be done on a first-come, first-served basis.

 At the dinner break, John Fung introduced his fellow classmate as the mystery guest speaker of the night. He was Dr. Bonbon Hu (65), a Vancouver dentist who has recently retired. Other than a dentist, Dr. Hu is also a Taekwondo black-belt holder, long-time practitioner In Tai Chi and Qigong, a whiskey connoisseur and a motor-bike aficionado all rolled into one. Dr. Hu has ridden his beloved BMW motorcycle across Asia, Europe and North America. This time Dr. Hu would like to share his experience with Qigong and try to demystify it in a few words.  As one of his mentors told him before, Qigong was like acupuncture without the needle. By drawing energy from nature and the air around us, one could internalize and retain it within the body. At an advanced level, one could even direct and amass energy to any part of the body.  That, of course, as reminded by Dr. Hu, required proper guidance and lots of practice. At the end, Dr. Hu did a simple demonstration with the audience.

After that, there was a quiz on some poems from Tang Dynasty that we learned at school. Prizes were awarded to those who could provide the right answers. As usual, a lot more door prizes were drawn for the lucky guests before the happy evening came to an end.
