Wedding filled with Wah Yan Spirit

"This is our dear school where we learn how to treasure...," 48 Wahyanites were chanting the school song joyously on stage while their picture was being taken. Edward Lau Fu Keung's wedding ceremony and banquet held in the Four Seasons Hotel in Central on 23rd October was well attended by Wahyanites. Edward, graduated in '96, was elected Student Ambassador and represented the PSA to visit Sydney, Australia. An active and popular member of the PSA, Edward, is currently a convenor of the Finance Fraternity. His lovely and cheerful bride Amy did not make it into this all Wahyanite photo since, technically speaking, she went to St. Francis' Canossian College. Other photos with Amy in them will hopefully be released soon.

A Night of ��Red, Hot, Heat��

10 of the ��Eating Warriors�� met together to attend the Sichuan cuisine challenge in Wanchai last Friday (24th Sept). I supposed that was our first Wine & Dine event with Sichuan cuisine so far. 13 delicious dishes were matching with bottles of Brazilian sweet sparkling and chilled red wines (specially for Cantonese, Shanghainese & Sichuanese cuisines) were served to balance the hot & spicy feeling. In conclusion, dishes from this private kitchen were not that hot. The taste was within our limitation and we enjoyed it very much although with sweat. - Silas Chan '85

Wahyanites in Beijing

Eugene Tang: "In early May 2010, Fr. Deignan, Fr. Chow and a few alumni visited Beijing to participate in the First Annual Matteo-Ricci Symposium. It was at a gathering during this auspicious occasion that we decided the time was right to officially start our Beijing Chapter. With the growing importance of the Chinese economy, we see an increasing number of Wahyanites residing in Beijing. Hence, this Chapter serves to gather our fellow Wahyanites together and aims to build up a strong supportive network for students, alumni and family. In addition, we hope to act as a means for Wahyanites in Beijing to contribute to the growth and development of our schools. Finally, we would like to extend our heartfelt invitation to all alumni living or moving to Beijing to join our local chapter and participate in our activities." Contact: Eugene Tang  William Ngauv

The Memory Palace of Matteo Ricci

�i���D�G�Q����ΤE�s�ؤ��t�̯���p��X�� �C���h�C��q�@ �m�Q���u���O�Юc���n �@�ɭ��t : 5th-9th November 2010
In this seven-act opera, the story of Matteo Ricci��s endeavour to convert the Chinese people to Christianity through teaching them the art of memory will be told in a spatial collage of singing, sounds and images. With prodigious feats of memory that he metaphorically put as a boundless memory palace constructed in the mind, and his thorough knowledge on science, technology and culture of China and the West, Matteo Ricci created an amazing encounter between western and eastern civilizations, and planted the seeds of cultural exchange between them in the few hundred years thereafter. This opera is written by Diana Liao, playwright of Poet Li Bai, with music composed by Steve Hui Ngo-shan, and internationally renowned operatic bass singer Tian Hao Jiang as Matteo Ricci.

The 2nd Annual PSA Wine & Dine

The 2nd Annual PSA Wine & Dine (aka Dr. Chung KL Wine & Dine) was held on Monday July 26 at Ivan The Kozak in Central. This dinner started by Martin Kwan last year with PSA event coordinators to discuss the year plan. This year I extend the invitation to all PSA Interest Group convenors and in total 15 people attended. We discussed the direction of PSA for the coming year over scrumptious Russian cuisine as well as many bottles of wine.
After the dinner, about half of the people stayed behind for more discussion & drinking and thanks to Ivan the owner who gave us complimentary vodkas exclusively imported from Russia. Even after the restaurant closed, 6 of us stood on Hollywood Road talking till 2am. Dr. Chung enjoyed the vodkas so much he bought 2 bottles of chili vodka from the restaurant to take home.
I would like to thank Silas Chan for organizing such a wonderful dinner & thank all those who attended. In the coming future, Silas promised to organize more Wine & Dine party open to all with varieties of different cuisines. - Gary Ching (PSA Chairman)

Uniform Romance

Web Album Many of you may recall we have always held St. Joseph College as some kind of rival in one sense or another. Well that's also the case in Scouting. Our 15th HKG has for decades crossed swords with the 1st HKG (St. Joseph College HK) in numerous Scouting competitions. These battles have historically been affectionately known as FiFi events by the scouting community (First vs Fifteen).

Last week on 21st May 2010, we had another FiFi of a very different nature. Michael Sy our Scout Troop Leader (as well as one of the webmasters for the PSA) took 1st HKG Leader Jennifer as his bride and tied the knot of matrimony by a very special wedding held at the Tai Tam Scout Campsite. Everything including the Civil Celebrant was a Scout. Please click to see more. Our three cheers to Michael!

Full DetailsDr. Stephan Rothlin S.J., Chairman of the Association for International Business Ethics, will direct a contemplation course at Xavier House, Cheung Chau, from 11th to 13th June (Friday to Sunday).
Contemplation offers busy people a simple way to get rid of nervous distractions, to reach inner calm and enjoy life more fully. It is actually an easy method of meditation focused on the perception of one's own breathing, body and one word, such as "Abba" "Jesus" or "Om" Contemplation is both rooted in the tradition of Zen and of the Christian Orthodox "Prayer of Jesus" which can be practised by atheists as well as by people with a religious background. This meditation does not require any previous qualifications. It is however necessary to have a certain psychological equilibrium in order to make progress in the exercise of Contemplation and being able to integrate Contemplation into one's daily life. Usually the practice of Contemplation inspires to try to understand insights from major Oriental and Western wisdom traditions and stories. The course is open to all religious denominations. It is optional to join the celebration of the mass and the Contemplative prayer of adoration. Click here for full details.

Farewell Games & Dinner for Ip Sir

"He has represented us in basketball, football, athletics, table tennis, badminton, tennis, swimming.... A hard-working and reliable athlete.... He has instilled a strong sense of fair play in every game he played..... He deserves to be the Sportsman of the Year". Do these phrases sound familiar to you? Yes, you're right, those are the phases Ip Sir likes to use when describing our Sportsmen of the Year. Though we may not be able to read these phrases in our school year book next year as our Sports Master will be retiring after this school year, the liberal and free sporting environment Ip Sir and other teachers established will remain unchanged.

To bid our Sports Master's farewell, we staged an All Star Football and Basketball Games followed by a Farewell Dinner on May 15. As a rough estimation, over 120 old boys, many of the them Sportsmen of the Year, joined the party to reminisce the good old days we spent with Ip Sir in Wah Yan. It was full of fun every minute and Ip Sir showed us again his never declining football and basketball skills and fair judgment during the ball games.

Despite Ip Sir's retirement from his teaching life, we are pleased to know that he will keep contributing as a basketball referee and a basketball commissioner as well as devoting more time in voluntary work with Mrs. Ip for the needy in mainland China. We sincerely wish Ip Sir a healthy, happy and valuable retirement life.

Salute to Ip Sir - Our Sports Master will never leave us alone

Mr. Anthony Ip has decided to leave his teaching career after this school year to spend more time with his beloved wife and family. He would also extend his contributions for Hong Kong in basketball refereeing. He will be in charge of all the referees in basketball during the upcoming Asian Games in Guangzhou later this year. He will not forget his Wah Yan colleagues, students, fans, and friends and will be available when time permits.

News from Haiti

Fr. Stephen Chow would like to share this piece of news from Edmund Lo's sister on Feb 03:
"Today got an email from Edmund's novice master, Fr Erik, he mentioned that Edmund and Artur are healthy and in good spirits. They have been a good example to the Haitian Jesuit novices because of their energy and creativity in how they help with the relief effort. Apparently the site they are staying is pretty good, like a "Hilton" compared to other sites, as they have real tents that are mosquito proof where there is soft grass underneath. Thus, there is plenty of food and clean water."

Mass before Walkathon: 8 a.m. 18 October (Sun) WYK School Hall

I would like to bring to your attention a change regarding the Mass on Oct. 18 before the Walkathon. Since we do not have any public religious rituals planned for the celebration of our anniversaries which is something significantly amiss for some of our alumni, parents, and friends, let's make the Mass a public religious celebration of the anniversaries.
So please kindly inform our students, staff, alumni, parents, and friends of this public religious celebration -- 8 a.m. on 18/10 in WYK School Hall. Those who would like to celebrate and pray for the two Wah Yans at the start of our celebrations are most welcome! It will be a Sunday Mass (Mission Sunday) while celebrating the 85th and 90th Anniversaries of our two Wah Yans. - Fr. Stephen Chow

Chung Pan's operation a success

Mr. Norman So reports: Thanks to your support and prayers.? I just heard from Fr. Stephen Chow that Chung Pan underwent a very successful surgery this morning and the doctors were satisfied with the outcome.? We are given to understand that the tissues in his leg are functioning well and a total recovery (apart from the toes removed to minimize the probability of a relapse) is expected.? Let us keep praying for him and his mother, who is, I am certain, both relieved and exhausted after so many days of anxiety and busy shuttling between places.
