Eliza and Don Yau (65) married recently. They were in town and attended a welcome dinner on June 24. They brought along a Red and a White which paired nicely with a menu drawn up by Gus Yueng and Andrew Tang. It was a very happy evening.

Jim Fung, R.I.P.
We received the sad news that Jim Fung passed away on June 7 after years of battle with cancer.
Jim was an active member of the Class of 73. He enjoyed soccer, the most popular sport at school, and continued playing Sunday soccer with wahyanites in Toronto before his illness. A solid centre defender of the soccer team, he helped WYKAAO to win the Anniversary Cup in 1999.
We ask you to keep him in your prayers.

Mr Laurence Tam writes, "On 2nd May, Sunday, I was invited by the Hong Kong Culture and Leisure Services Department (LCSD) to be the judge of a sand sculpture competition at Shek-O Beach. Shek-O was chosen, because the sand over there is extraordinary fine. There had been 12 rounds of competitions before this. This was the final round in which five of the winning teams who scored the highest points in the earlier competitions were competing. The winning team in this competition will be representing Hong Kong to take part in the international sand sculpture event to be held in coming August at Kagoshima in Japan.
