  Obituary: I am sorry to inform you that our dear classmate Edward Sin Wai WOO passed away this morning at home. We received the news from Kathleen, his loving wife.
As you know, Edward has been under treatment for his cancer for the last few years. He was hospitalized last week for some blood clog in his thigh. He was discharged from the hospital on Sunday and spent Mother’s Day dinner with his family. PK Lee, Andrew Lau and I are planning on getting together with him next week when he gets better. Unfortunately, the news about his passing came to us this afternoon.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear classmate but I firmly believe Edward is now resting in heaven with our Lord. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kathleen and the three daughters. May God grant them strength and peace through this difficult moment.

  Obituary: We received the following sad news about the passing away of our beloved classmate Patrick LAM Hon Kay from his brother Bill:
波仔是昨天早上在東莞寓所内被大哥(林漢傑)Joseph 發现在家中沙發上失去知覺,马上送了入医院,即时轉入lCU, 经搶救後延至傍晚医院主動建議送他回香港並代安排救護車,這舉動已令我心知不妙,医生説他是肺炎及腎衰竭,结果等至晚上十点多才安排有车经罗湖送他至香港上水北區医院,雖然波仔一直昏迷,上車前医生仍给他注射了镇静剂,午夜後到達上水北區医院,延至早上三時十分去世。- Francis LAM Hon Bill 2019.01.24

敬告各位67年校友,波仔之丧禮將於2月3日四時起在世界殯儀館2楼永恩堂設靈供親友作懷缅及最後告别,2月4日早上10時大殮瞻仰遗容,11時蓋棺出殯。但因末能book 到火爐,火化只能過年後舉行。 我們亦安排了在2月1日星期五在華仁小教堂下午6時至7時為波仔舉行追思彌撒,希望大家能抽空参加,感恩!

  Obituary: Our beloved Fr. Alfred Joseph Deignan S.J. returned to the Lord on 11th December 2018 at the age of 91. Funeral Mass was held in St. Ignatius Chapel, Wah Yan College, Kowloon, at 11 a.m. on 22nd December 2018, followed by burial in St. Michael's Catholic Cementery in Happy Valley. Fr. Deignan is remembered by the following video made by Nick Tsui

  Obituary: Our beloved teacher and friend Mr. Raymond YU Pui Lam passed away peacefully on June 13, 2018. His funeral was held in Vacouver on July 12. Memorial service will be held in Hong Kong on July 28 (Sat) in the School Hall of Wah Yan College Hong Kong, 281 Queen's Rd. East. Reception at 4:30 pm and Mass at 5:00 pm  
  Obituary: On the eve of February 7, 2018, our most beloved classmate James WONG Pui Chit passed away in Eastern Hospital. James had been unwell for several months and was not able to join our 50th Anniversary celebration. A kind hearted and respectable gentleman with an admirable sense of righteousness, his last words to us on our Class- 67 WhatsApp group the day before he died advocated social media etiquettes : "...words of hatred, anger and insult are powerful tools used by satan to turn people away from God to follow satan to the place of eternal fire. In fact, these are tools by many governments for their vicious purposes. It would be wise to take note on these." His advice will not be forgotten, neither wil the good times he shared with us throughout the years. May his soul rest in peace.  

We celebrated the 50th Anniversary of our graduation with the following events in 2017:
1. Racing & Dining - November 8
2. Speech Day & Dinner - November 9
3. Ocean Park Outing - November 10
4. Gala Dinner - Novermber 11

  Dear Classmates:
November 11, 2017 is the date that we, classmates of Wah Yan's class of 1967, will celebrate our 50th anniversary.
It was 5 years ago, that we celebrated the 45th anniversary.
And it was 10 years ago, in November 2007, that we celebrated the 40th anniversary.
But there was no 30th, 20th, or 10th or 5th anniversary celebration.
Back in those days, phone calls and regular mails were the only ways to stay in touch.
Classmates who had left home and went far away were mostly out of touch and beyond reach.
Then came the internet.
Through emails, we reconnected and one by one, we were added to the contact list. And one by one, we showed up, from far and near, when we came home. And ever since, we had stayed in touch.
Let's meet up again at the 50th anniversary reunion party.
- Classmate Ah Mou - 2017.01.19

R.I.P. Fr. Thomas McIntyre SJ 麥健泰神父 (6 Feb 1926 ~ 4 Aug 2016)

Fr. McIntyre was born in Ireland. He entered the Society of Jesus on 7 Sep 1948 and came to Hong Kong in 1953.
He was ordained in Ireland on 31 July 1959 and was the Form Master of F.4B of Wah Yan College HK in 1966.

Paul CHAN Ho 陳灝 (a.k.a. 火箭佬 in p.5) has surfaced!
We have finally managed to catch one of the two most difficult-to-catch runners in 兵捉贼 (favourite past-time in primary Wah Yan recess time).
Paul writes: "My permanent home is in Maryland (US) near Washington, DC. Mostly retired now, I am still a visiting scientist at Guangzhou's Sun Yat-sen University (中山大学) and visit 中大 several times a year. So I can hop over to HK easily. I am in Guangzhou now but am leaving for other parts of China in a couple of days. I will definitely go to HK and reconnect with the HK alumni next time."

 Mou with classmates in LA, Toronto and Vancouver in 2016

Mario, Dick LAU, James YEUNG and Edmond CHEUNG were here in Vancouver earlier this year in May. We had a gathering at my place and played some ping pong earlier that day in my church. The gathering was joined by Andrew CHU from Edmonton and Eric CHAN from Toronto. It was great to meet up again.
Our Vancouver group of 12 will get together on January 3, 2016 at PK Lee's new house. It will be lots of fun.
I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Blessed New Year. ---- Nick LAI

We were thrilled by the presence of two teachers, namely Chau-chau 余沛霖老師 and Ah Char 馮錦生老師, at our monthly luncheon on 15 Dec 2015. Coming in from Houston Texas was Ringo YEUNG Chik Leung and departing for Australia was CHU Sau Yee.

We had a nice time talking about the good old days, grand children and the like. The rare appearances of Dominic HUNG Hin Ling and James YEUNG Kit Choi further delighted us all.

Patrick (a.k.a. Ballchai) remarked:"My thanks to all of my mates who were at the luncheon; I can safely say that we hadn't had so much fun just spending time with each other for a long time. So much good jiving. Yup, not talk, jive. Well, of course, with occasional healthy tips from our resident doctor, Francis Lee who showed us how to stretch horizontally. We were kind enough not to insist that he does it that way, so Francis did the demo vertically. All in all, we made fools of ourselves. I especially hoped that Seng Chu's wish that I would grow taller will bear fruit in 2014. Special thanks to Dai Bun for arranging the luncheon and cake. And our organizer Low Cheung for his dubious dedication in setting our luncheon dates.

Ah MOU threw his annual party at the Conrad Hotel on 15th November 2013 to entertain his classmates and two of their former teachers, Mr. CHAU Siu Hay 周兆熙 and Mr. FUNG Kam Sang 馮錦生.

  This photo was taken at the gathering in Sydney during my visit. From the left is LAI Ka Tsun, NG Ting Pong, LAU Dick Kwong and WAN Shiu Hung. All the gentlemen are standing behind their respective better half.
On the table, there are famous Australian abalone and wine. Lots of good food and wine to follow and the dinner lasted for three hours. We talked a lot about our days in Wah Yan. It was a very enjoyable evening. 
WAN Shiu Hung has a new haircut. The Elvis style which he wore in Wah Yan is out-dated and no more suitable for him. NG Ting Pong becomes more handsome as his face is whiter than he used to be. This might be the adverse effect of the Australian sunray. The first time for me to meet LAI Ka Tsun after 46 years, he still looks the same as he was but with a few grey hair by now. He must made himself some special medicine to keep young. - Dick LAU 2013.08.12

Nick LAI reports: Further to my recent trip to Sydney, Australia, I was in LA last week attending a conference and had dim sum with the five Wah Yan boys. It was especially special meeting seeing Mok HO, Abe and Felix after 45 years. I attended Mike NGAN's church before our lunch. Mike is their choir director.
I am glad to report that all five of the LA Wah Yan boys plan on attending our 45th Reunion in Hong Kong. In fact three of them have already booked their flights. I will certainly encourage our BC-9 to join the reunion as well.

Nick and Jammie LAI visited Gerald and Kitty WAN in Sydney, Australia earlier this month (March 2012). Nick will also be making a business trip to L.A. in April and plan to look up some of our classmates there.

It was decided that the expenses of the wreath be taken care of by the surplus fund of our 40th Anniversary Reunion safely held on our behalf by Stephen Siu.

  A big crowd turned out to have a good time lunching with Andrew Lau (Vancouver) and Abe Chang (L.A.). "I am deeply honoured by the large number of classmates attending despite of the typhoon signal no. 3 in anticipation of one the strongest typhoons in decades," says Andrew. "This is what I call the die-hard Wah Yan spirit!," he added. 2010.10.22

The food was surprisingly great given the place's location.  We literally lost track of time. Had we stayed much longer, I am sure the restaurant manager will not hesitate to give us the proverbial "time to get your butts out of here" signal. We should definitely get together more often." 
  Nick Tsui caught Gilbert Tan Sze Yiu in Hong Kong enroute to the Expo in Shanghai with wife Gladys, sons Derrick and Mike and daughter in law Hide. We had a nice lunch in Stanley (believe it or not, Gil had never been to Stanley all his life) and spent some time back in Wah Yan where the second picture was taken. (2010.06.13)

Other than the wedding, a few of us met at my house for an evening of chatting and Night Congee on Sunday (til 2 a.m.) - with special permission from our wives of course. Numerous topics were discussed including a detail encounter Edmund had with a female nurse during one of his medical procedures - facinating !

  Mou Kwok Lai stormed into town and threw a big party for us at the Conrad Hotel on 24 May 2010. 26 of us showed up and had a great time watching slide shows courtesy of Gerald Wan who visited Louis in New York after the Reunion in Canada (Great shots Gerald!). Ah Mou also did his best to refresh our memory on the images (mostly of barber shops and restaurants in NY) and songs from his own precious archieve. Gregory Lam Dai Bun provided first class entertainment and sent us laughing with tears doing his gags as the cool-face stand-up comedian without actually standing up. Conrad Hotel's food, wine and service was, needless to say, excellently as usual. We left close to midnight looking forward to next year's gathering.

That's why Cecil Fung has requested to post these photos here for the benefit all in case he should show up at our reunion. If you still have trouble identifying him, he is Stephen CHAN Kai-fong.... better known as Steve the Inventor nowadays. (2009.09.09)
  Paul Chan sent in these photos of George and Amy Chok's visit to Toronto with their two sons. Jerry Cheng, Ku Po Kong and Paul had a great meal with them in a Chinese restaurant on 4 Aug 2009.

Dear all,
We just had our monthly gathering. It was another enjoyable event as usual. The gathering in June is set to take place on June 25, Thursday. The venue will be changed to Ma Wan, the island which houses Ball Chai.  He highly recommends a sea food place on the island. According to Ball Chai, this joint offers superb food quality at an unbelievably low price. For those who want to join, the meeting place is Ma Wan ferry pier right across IFC and the meeting time is 11:50am. The ferry ride will last for about 20 minutes. For those who miss the noon ferry, take the next ferry. We'll wait for you at the other end.
Please comment on postponing the reunion and let me know if you want to attend the next lunch meeting in Ma Wan.
Have a nice weekend.

Lots of things to catch up on.  I have been living in Hawaii since 73, doing accounting at an oil refinery for the last 30 years.  Retirement could be any day now. No firm date yet.  
In planning the reunion trip, I am thinking of arriving Thursday (10th) morning. So there is a couple of  free day. Any suggestions as to what I can do around your area Thur, Fri & Sat?

Dai Bun (Lam Kwai Bun) is kind enough to be their official escort and limo driver most of the time. But in the evening of 21st December 2008, Nick Tsui takes Eugene to the Hong Kong Brands & Product Expo (工展會) at Victoria Park. The venue is only a short tram ride away from Eugene's hotel in Wanchai. Sampling exotic food and drinks seems to be the thing to do there and, as shown in the photograph, we find ourselves drinking up potent drinks offered by a Miss Expo (工展小姐), the young thing in funny costume. After visiting the Expo, we stroll down to North Point for dinner. Fish soup and vegetables are ordered to keep the menu light and healthy, the way Ah B likes it.

The topic of our discussion was the 2009 reunion which currently includes Vancouver and Toronto.  Given the state of economy in New York City right now, we all decided that if all the '67 classmates include New York city in their itinerary, it will definitely give a much needed boost to the city's economy.  Please give it some serious thought.

Hi AlL:

I want to thank you again for the gathering in Toronto and the lovely dinner.  It was very special for me to see all of you in one room after over 40 long years.  May our friendship continue to grow as a result of this reconnection.  I also enjoyed meeting with Isabella and your respective spouses. Georgina and I used to attend the U of Alberta in the early '70s !!  I just wished to have more individual time with each of you to renew our friendship.  Hopefully we will have that opportunity again in September 2009 in Vancouver. 

Anyway, I will be discussing the suggested N. America Reunion with the Wah Yan '67ers in Vancouver to be held some time in september 2009.  Let me know your ideas and possible assistance from your end.  Francis White Shoe Boy, please forward me the name of the hotel.

Attached are the photos I took at the dinner.

According to Mario, Cecil played an excellent game, considering his not having played for decades. We all know that Cecil was swimming champion during our Wah Yan days. However, his disclosure that he was also part of the school's Ping Pong Team admittedly came as a surprise that has yet to be verified by Peter Lam or their coach Atomic Dust.

George Chok and wife Amy went to Vancouver and shared a Kodak moment with Gladys and Gil Tan, Jamie and Nicholas Lai and Teresa and Robert Lo. A meeting with his future son-in-law pre-empted Mike Cheung from attending. George regaled the group with stories, particularly the psychological scarring that was firectly attributed to ballchai. Apparently George got an earful from ballchai when he forgot to bring the competition papers and the pair were thus disqualified from representing Wah Yan at in Inter-School Badminton Tournament.

We find Ah Mou the Ambassador back in Big MOUth. This time, he hooked up with Stephen Leung and Matthew San. The subject of after dinner entertainment came up, during and after dinner of course. The trio finally decided to visit a tea parlour and continue into the night drinking bubble tea.





Some time in the Autumn of 2006, Paul Chan Ka Bun made his usual trek to Sydney, Australia to visit family. This trip was special when he hooked up with our long lost classmate Dr. Lai Ka Tsun. Pictured here is evidence of the encounter. Of course, a meal and good times was had by the two boys. See the smiles on their faces!

You are not alone if you find Hong Kong's youngsters behaving rudely or holding a misguided sense of values in recent years. Rev. Fr. Deignan thought about that too and he decided to do something about it by setting up the Hong Kong International Institute of Educational Leadership (HKIIEL) to promote and develop basic human values.

With 2007 being our 40th graduation anniversary and Wah Yan still very much in our hearts, a group led by Nick Tsui put together a donation to help HKIIEL put on a variety show. The show was held at the St. Peter's Secondary School on 27 January. You may be interested to know that St. Peter's headmaster happens to be our classmate Peter Lau Chiu Yin.
V-Show Representing Class 67 were Ball chai and Vincent Li Hoi Yuen who went on stage while Wun Kam Hoi was in backstage coaching his 國際經典文化協會 team of 3 little girls and a boy to recite 朱子治家格言 as guest performers.

Dear Nick,
You have done a wonderful job getting your classmates to support our V-Shows and I thank you and them for their very generous donations which have come in at such short notice. They are really helping our efforts to make young people and teachers more aware of the importance of basic human values in our relationships. I am sure the V-Shows will bear fruit, especially in the joyful participation of the children and parents.

With prayers and gratitude,
Alfred J. Deignan S.J.

SoCal Mini Reunion 1


Ballchai, Felix Leung Wing Hang, Vincent (Sahng Jick) Lee and Mike Ngan Liu had a nice mini reunion tonight at the monthly dinner gathering organized by the So. Calif. Wah Yan Alumni Association, at the Holiday Cafe in Monterey Park.


SoCal Mini Reunion 2


Fish Ball Noodle Shop



It is a well know fact that any visitor from abroad must have a bowl of fish ball noodle soup at On Lee Restaurant on Shaukiwan Main Street. The fish ball noodle soup not only cures hunger, it is an omen that one will run into old friends in the Restaurant. Such is the case here.
The familiar pangs of hunger drove Stephen Leung to Shaukiwan one fine November day. The aroma of fish balls enticed him to wander into On Lee, following an odor that he faintly remembered from his wilder days. As soon as he entered, he was greeted by Edmund and Peter, who were there checking on the quality of the soya and hot sauces. Joined by Anna Tsui, they shared a table and an excellent lunch of fish ball and beef noodle soup. The group picture on the left was ample evidence. An unknown waiter stuck his head and body into the picture, unbeknownst to Stephen, who paid the bill.


Here are some movies of the 2006 Autumn Reunion:
Making an entrance to the festivites, Stephen Leung and Ku Po Kong, as fellow Torontonians, were met by the videographer.
Next, came Lung Chai. He was warmly greeted by ballchai and Ah Fook.
The party got into full swing at din din.
Everyone had a chance to speak. Here's a clip of Albert Lee Kwok Chuen, Stephen Siu, Dick lau, ballchai and Mario Lee.
A momentous decision was made and the Chairs of the 40th Reunion were selected. After Mario and Nick, Ronald Law Wing Keong spoke.
The speeches continued with Ku Po Kong, Peter Lau Chiu Yin and Lam Chai.
Nick introduced Dr. Edward Woo Sin Wai, followed by Choi Suk, Vincent Li Hoi Yuen, Mrs. Larry Yeung Nai Luen and Donna Eng.
Joe Lung Chai shared his thoughts next and was moved and moving. Then, Albert Leung Kwok Kuen took his turn at the mic.
Stephen Leung then related what happened to him in the last 39 years.
Alex Seng was in top comical form, followed by Dr. Francis Lee Wan Tse.
Super Mario, always the gentleman, thanked the wives and children and friends of our 67 Classmates before Paul Eng introduced his family.
Everyone enjoyed the party and reunion so much that all felt sad to part company.
See you all next November!

What a wonderful reunion night! The Class 67 home page was projected on the screen all night long and all those old pictures induced much laughter and interesting conversation. The mic was passed around and everyone was asked to say something to sum up what happened to him after 1967. Some were serious and a little emotional but most tried to be smart and cracked jokes as frequently as possible.
The location of the meet and greet was at the Disciplined Services Sports & Recreation Club, Caroline Hill Road, Causeway Bay, HK. Arranged by Super Mario, food was of course supplied in copious amounts and quality was out of this world. Those with 6-packs ate as much as those without.
Food - 民以食為天

Email messages from Ah Mou, Andrew Lau and Paul Chan were read out and that made us feel that they were right there with us.
Paul Eng, our guest of honour was awarded a Cup by Joe Lung for winning the ping pong tournament. That was no surprise to us because Paul is ranked 21 in Hawaii.

Paul & Ballchai
Catching up on each other for the first time since 1967 for some of the participants, the evening was emotionally charged. Remembering happy times years ago brought tears to more than one eye. This is the appropriate time for grown men to regress into Boyz. Boyhood stories were shared, compared and exaggerated; smart ass comments abound. Triggered by images from years before, the good old days got better and better.
Boyz Relaxing

Where would we be without our loved ones? Persons of significance were present, not to keep a tight rein but to share and help celebrate our esprit de corps and friendship. Their tolerance of our tomfoolery, their patience with our neglect at this occasion and their stoic understanding of our unverbalized appreciation and love was deeply and truly appreciated.

A Very Happy 60 Years Old Dick!
Dick's children planned and organized a great party to please their old man. The finest of wine, food and company, topped off with a video show of greeting clips from family and friends overseas.
Somehow, they even managed, not without great difficulty, to let him win $80 at the mah-jong table. Dick was indeed much pleased. He was all smiles all night long. His speech was focused specially on our Class 67. As expected, he was interrupted more than once by James Yeung and Mario Lee who couldn't resist from cracking jokes in response to contents of his speech. More fun was thus added to the already warm and loving speech... HAPPY BIRTHDAY DICK!

Group Lunch


2006-07-03 saw Ah Mou and wife Carolyn and daughter Erin driving from New Jersey to visit old friends in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. After many hours on the road, the 繆 family arrived and found White Rabbit and Jenny at the Ambassador Restaurant. Sharing stories and good food were in order and a good time was had by all. There was no chopstick fighting or throwing of food, and civility ruled the day. Fun and fellowship was enjoyed and promises were made to do the same at the next earliest opportunity.



Later, Louis went drinking with more old friends. Being the designated non-drinker, White Rabbit, true to his name, had OJ. The others happily imbibed martinis and beers and got happier. Attitudes were adjusted with enthusiasm. Nick, our Prez 4 Life, was called in HK by the group, and was roused from bed at 10:30 am. Louis thanked Nick for his fantastic work in bringing us together and roundly shined his shoes.Seated l-r: Paul Chan Ka Bun, David Lok Kwok Kai, Stephen Leung Cheung Hung, Ah Mou 繆國禮, Remus Tsang Siu Lun

Obituary: Rev. Fr. Joseph Foley, S.J.

Fr. Foley Obituary

Updated 09.08.2006

Please join us in a moment of silence to grieve the passing away of late Fr. Foley. Late Fr. Foley left this world at 11pm 4th September 2006 (Dublin time) in his nursing home in Dublin. This photograph is hardly a recent one but it is one image that many of us will always remember him by. You may all be comforted to learn that of late, many old boys have written to late Fr. Foley and a few even made the trip over especially to visit him. I am happy to report that all these made him extremely glad. One good way to measure a good teacher must be by how many old students take the trouble to visit him. From the gestures of Wahyanites, late Fr. Foley's relatives also got to learn how great a part of life Wah Yan had been to him and vice versa. They are all very proud of late Fr. Foley and were able to persoanlly sense the affection displayed by the locals a few years ago during their visit to HK. The funeral in Dublin was held on 7th September in the Jesuit Church Dublin. In the meantime, take stock of our fond memories for the kind man who came all the way from Ireland, who taugh us so much and made a difference in many of our lives. Enjoy the reassuring knowledge that Fr. Foley is now peacefully by God's side. The Requiem Mass for late Rev. Fr. J. Foley, S.J. will be held at the Cathedral, Caine Road, on 14th September, 2006 at 7:30p.m. Cardinal Zen will be the Chief Celebrant.

Nick Tsui 2006.09.05


Fr. Foley left this earth on September 04, 2006, at 11:00 pm Dublin time. Funeral mass will be held on September 7th in Dublin. Please go to http://www.wahyan-psa.org for updates. While his passing was not totally unexpected, I am experiencing a great sense of loss.I remember Fr. Foley. I first knew him as our Principal in Primary 5. He was our quintessential version of 007. With his slightly crooked smile, a glint of good-natured mischief in his eyes and a quiet self-confidence in each step, had he not received the calling of the Church, I could almost see him holding a double vodka martini in one hand, mesmerizing all the ladies at hand, and breaking the bank at baccarat. However, he became a spiritual man, a servant of God and mentor, teacher and friend to us all. He often joked with us and played along with us, all the while knowing that his “wings” are being tied into a knot behind his back. As you open the attached file, please read what Fr. Foley wrote to us some 39 years ago. We have been reunited by email and we are living the spirit of Wah Yan as Fr. Foley had hoped for.And now, he is peacefully at God’s side.

Cecil Fung 2006-09-05


This is indeed sad news to us all. I remember Fr. Foley fondly. He was my badminton partner and we won many games due to ... me. I especially remember the times when I didn't wear school designed uniform and was caught by Fr. Foley at the entrance. He wouldn't scold me per se, but would simply wring my ear and raise it a few inches so that I would get the message.He was a good-natured man with such handsome looks. Yes, he was very attractive, and actually better looking than 007. Though I don't know if he would sip martinis, but I am sure he was fond of the wine's of benediction.All kidding aside, I miss all my father and y'all.

ballchai 2006-09-05


I could remember how I loved to climb up and down the slopes of Wah Yan next to Stubbs Road, during lunch time. I enjoyed the excitement of hiding amidst the tall grass and the tranquility looking up the blue sky lying on grass. I was caught by Fr. Foley while I stuck my head out. He cautioned me, of course, but I think he did not really forbid me, as I kept this adventurous activity for quite some time. There are so much that we have gained from Wah Yan, particularly all the devoted and loving fathers.I could not remember when I last met Fr. Foley after I left Wah Yan. As circumstances went, I maintained good contact with Fr. Deignan. I count this one of greatest blessing from God.I was fortunate enough to have the chance to share some fine wine with Fr. Deignan in recent years. How I wish the same with Fr. Foley. May that be fulfulled some time in the arms of God.May the spirit of the Jesuit priests and Wah Yan long last and best wishes to you all.

Francis Lee Wan Tsi 2006-09-05


After leaving Wah Yan in 1968, the next time I contacted Fr. Foley was in preparation of the International Conference in Toronto in 2002. Although he could not attend due to his health, he sent us a photo and message. Since then, he'd send me a Christmas card every year with a few words in it.I'll treasure these as well as the everlasting memory of a great mentor and teacher.

This is Cecil Fung reporting on another headbanging session of the 67 boys. The occasion was the International Conference hosted by the Vancouver Chapter in August, 2006. Under the expert tutelage of our President for Life Nick, I managed to sneak into the ranks of the Rookie Web Updater. So, here goes .....


It was the evening of Thursday, August 17, 2006, at the River Rock Casino Hotel in Richmond, BC, Canada. The all too familiar refrains of 'The House of the Rising Sun" wafted in the air, setting the mood. Our beloved Father Deignan, looking radiant as ever, tended to his flock of a bunch of 67 boys, emotional yet stoic, and 2 lovely ladies.

Want to know what 'Dean Chai' is up to?   

26 November, 2004
A fine example of lifelong learning, James Yeung Kit Choi was a Form 5D boy in 1967 who spent most of his time on the basketball court with his school team buddies. He never paid too much attention to his books. Yet more than three decades later, on 24 November 2004, he was conferred the Doctor of Business Administration degree.

"I developed the interest to further study purely because I was influenced by Tao Man Kuen, one of my best friends in Wah Yan. He had two Master Degrees, so I thought I could do it too. Later, the more I studied, the more I felt I was really deficient in knowledge. So I kept going. I intend to do a PhD in History later on. However, I would like to take a little time off to enjoy life with my wife Dorothy and my family before I take up further studies," says Dr. James Yeung, the GM of Dragooair South East Asia.

"I would like to share my experience with young Wahyanites and would like to say that the pursuance of knowledge is never enough, and thus is never ending. As long as there is a will, there is a way. It's never too late to try!" he continued.

10 May 2004
Gilbert Tan Sze Yiu sneaked into Hong Kong briefly and managed to meet up with his '67 classmates in the Tai Woo Restaurant in Causeway Bay. James Yeung flew in from Bangkok where he represented DragonAir, Dick Lau from Shanghai where he was a property developer and Lawrence Yeung just got off a plane from Paris. Gilbert, our man from Vancouver, was accompanied by his wife Gladys and son Derrick.
By the way, congratulations to Dick Lau for having just become the first grand daddy of the class of '67!

Immediately following the World Health Organization's lifting of its international travel advisory against visiting Hong Kong yesterday (23rd May 2003), many Hong Kong residents ate out to celebrate for the first time in over 50 days. Members of WYHK basketball school team of the '60s too were doing their share of reviving Hong Kong's economy at the New Kotobuki Japanese Restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui.
According to the managing director of the New Kotobuki Japanese Restaurant, wife of Mario Lee Mui Lam, their restaurant is happy to offer a special 10% discount (except for items on set menu) to all Wahyanites from both the Hong Kong and Kowloon schools. "Just ask for Poon Shou Ying", she said. The restaurant offers an interesting combination of Japanese and French cuisines.
