from the HKUAA UK
Hello and welcome.
arrived at the website of the Hong Kong University Alumni Association,
United Kingdom Chapter.
formally inaugurated on June 12th 1999, and the photographs below
recorded our party which was a very well attended lunch hosted by Ms.
Sandra Lee, a graduate, and Director General of the Hong Kong Economic
and Trade Office, at her residence. Two Pro Vice-Chancellors, Professor
Cheng Kai Ming and Professor Ian Davies attended our inauguration.
Chapter, I believe, has the highest number of ex-university staff and
teachers, including past Vice-Chancellors Dr. Rayson Huang and
Professor Ian Davies. Former Hong Kong Governor and Chancellor Lord
David Wilson has also taken a keen interest in our activities and
hosted events twice! Our graduates are spread over all around the UK,
and should you be passing through, our committee members and I would be
delighted to hear from you. (We want to hear the 'gossip' from your
part of the world too). Also if you know of any graduates kicking
around who may not know of our existence or have not yet joined us, do
let us know, so that we can include them in our family.
(our chapter's home) is supposedly known to be expensive, wet, drab
conservative, full of cars, and funny food. So they say. Maybe? But I
always seem to be in a theatre for ballet, opera, music or exhibition
of some sort, and I seldom need to drive. Now the town is full of
celebrated chefs from all over Europe and Hong Kong doing their thing,
with an infinite variety that London has been crowned the 'swinging
city of Europe' for some years now. It definitely rains less than
Vancouver and when the sun is out, London has more parks than anywhere
else for you to enjoy.
your feet ache, you will find a rare quality of television, although
you will also find the British self-parody sense of humour could do
with some Chinese sub-titles.
enjoy it here. So visit us, call us, catch up with your old friends and
teachers, and join our events.
We welcome ex-staff of HKU to be
