YU, Gregory Tat (D.M.D.)
January 2, 1947 - December 17, 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Gregory Yu on December 17, 2017 at the age of 70. He is survived by his beloved wife Melanie, his son Jeffery, daughter Andrea, son-in-law Graham. Born in Hong Kong, Gregory immigrated to Vancouver in 1966. He graduated from the Faculty of Dentistry at U.B.C. in 1972.
Both Joe Pao鮑大雄 & William Ng 吳偉泉 visited Hong Kong at the same time in November and Chairman Eddie Lau treated them with other classmates to a Shanghai restaurant (泰豐屢) on Saturday (Nov. 11). William, Joe, Ming, Cecil, Chairman and Dennis got together with their better halves. They had a rowdy fun time according to Dennis who submitted the photos below.
Taking advantage of Joe Pao, William Ng and Chow Ping Hon's visit to HK, a mini reunion was held on November 12 (Sunday) in Kowloon Tsai Home Owners Association. All together, 30 classmates and spouses had joined in this memorable fun night. Thanks to Jeffrey, here are some pictures taken,

Why Tibet and who joined?
Tibet has always been on top of my list of places where I want to travel in China because of its remoteness and its religious mysticism. My wife Magdalen, however, does not share the same yearnings towards Tibet because she was worried about our age and the likelihood of altitude sickness. So when the news that Jeffrey and Ming were actively recruiting classmates for a Tibet trip reached us early this year, I knew the opportunity had arrived. I registered my interest for the trip.
The September 2016 WYK64 Reunion had laid the groundwork for the Tibet trip as Magdalen got on well with Ming's wife, Helena, who shared her passion for ballroom dancing and we had agreed to meet up in Sydney after the reunion. In the meantime, Jeffrey and Ming sent out an invitation to all alumni to join them in their proposed Tibet trip in June. We were in Shanghai at the time so we expressed interest to join. When we got back I arranged to meet with Ming and Helena in Sydney mid-February over lunch to discuss the trip. Ming told us that a number of classmates had considered the possibility of high altitude sickness and conditions of their health and had declined to join so we ended up with just Ming, Helena, Magdalen and I.
Departure from Guangzhou
Magdalen and I flew to Guangzhou from Sydney and stayed in Ming and Helena's spacious apartment overlooking the Pearl River and spent 2 hot summer days shopping in Guangzhou's famous walking street, Beijing Road, and visiting Sun Yat-sen Memorial. Ming treated us for lunch and demonstrated his tea-tasting skills 茶艺 with a fine selection of Guangzhou's delicious Dimsim varieties. He also showcased Cantonese food such as low-fired soup 老火汤, soya sause Goose, steamed Waan Fish. On the night before the trip we had a change of palate in a binge of Shanghaiese steamed buns, spiced jiaozi and pork with water duck soup. Ming and Helena were perfect hosts.
