HKUAAO arranged for a webinar on February 19,2022. The webinar – Bordeaux Red Wine 101 was well received by approximately 50 attendees, including members of HKUAAO and other Ontario HKJU alumni associations.

The presentation materials were prepared by the speaker Romeo Au, with the assistance of Maggie Poon.

If you haven’t registered yet and know you are available on Sunday, please register with me at firstname.lastname@example.org so your name can be put in the lucky draw. However, if you are still not sure and can find time to watch the show on Nov 7, you are welcome to login the link and enjoy.
Enclosed please find the program rundown for your reference. On behalf of HKUAAO, I would like to thank our Helen Woo and Amy Lo once again to perform the virtual 4-hand piano piece- Radetzky Marsch. It sounds easy but with Helen is in Toronto and Amy in Ottawa, it is much more difficult than we thought as they have to make effort to synchronize the audio track and other technical issues. I am looking forward to the performance.
Performance of UST (The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology Alumni Ontario) is a 2D/3D music + animation show. If you want to experience 3D effect, you need a 3D eye glasses for this. You can pick this up in Teresa Tang Wong’s World Financial Group Office at 9078 Leslie St Unit #4, Richmond Hill, ON L4B 3L8 between 9:30 am. – 3:30 pm. until Friday. Please call them in advance to make sure they will reserve a pair for you. We can still watch the 2D version but I am sure it will be more fun to watch in 3D.
I hope you all will have a wonderful afternoon on coming Sunday in JU萬千楓采嘉年華.

Various activities were included like individual exercise challenge, martial arts and singing performance, quiz competition and lucky draw. We even invited a professional chiropractor to show and teach us practical exercises to improve our body flexibility. All participants spent a fun and meaningful afternoon.
