"Margaret and I arrived at WYK playground just before 9 a.m. The place was already full of people, though not so crowded as the first one held 2 years ago. The color for this walkaton is yellow. All participants put on a yellow T shirt provided by the organizer. Yellow is a striking color, especially under the sun, as it was a gorgeous sunny day. The whole playground seemed to be flittering with shimmering yellow lights as the crowd of people moved around. I had the luck of meeting many of my old friends in the crowds at WYK playground, walking on the way to Tsimshatsui Star Ferry, in the ferry, walking from Wanchai Ferry Pier, through the Central Plaza and up the hill to Wah Yan Hong Kong. The closing ceremony was held at 1 p.m. at the playground of WYHK. That was the second Wah Yan Walkaton I experienced." ........Click here to see more pictures.

James Wan Koon-Ying visited us from Hong Kong in September with his wife Margaret. The class of 1967 threw a private dinner for him on the 23rd, which was followed by James’ birthday banquet on the 27th. A surprise guest at the banquet was the renowned WYK football star So Wai-Lum (蘇偉林) alias 細蘇 whom we have not seen for decades.
We were all delighted to have a chance of reminiscing the past years and learned from James tidbits on many fields which he is an expert on, including kung fu, feng shui, qi gong, Chinese medicine and his magnificent invention, the Topfit bricks 天風磚 while enjoying the sumptuous feast.
