On a warm Friday night in October, about 30 alumni, guests and former staff of WYK and WYHK attended a dinner with Fr. Coghlan who was visiting Toronto. Our beloved Father showed his usual charm and warmth by greeting everyone personally throughout the dinner. He joked that he recognized most attendants’ faces and names but not necessarily associating them. It was a long and enjoyable gathering that certainly brought back a lot of memories of days in Wah Yan. We wish Fr. Coghlan all the best and hope he will visit us again soon! (see the pictures here and a short video clip here)
Twenty members from WYKAAO/WYCHKOAA and guests attended a lunch with the Honourable Philip Lee (WYK60) at a Richmond Hill restaurant on October 4th. While enjoying a delicious dim-sum lunch, Philip looked back at his days in Wah Yan College, telling a few stories with his usual humorous notes. He also gave a glimpse of life in the first year as the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba. Pictures of the inauguration ceremony and the recent visit of the Queen were shared among the two tables of guests. Please click here to see the photos taken in the lunch event.

2010 Jiu Zhai Gou, China trip (Cecil 陳焯亨)
In the spring Edward Chung and I were planning a trip to Jiu Zhai Gou, the scenic spot in Sichuan province bordering Tibet. Joseph Lau in Hong Kong expressed interest in joining even though he had been there before. Then Peter Chau and Joseph Chow also joined. Joseph Chow's wife Hilda and their two children also came along. We decided to meet in Hong Kong, staying for couple of days before heading to Chengdu.
