    If you haven’t registered yet and know you are available on Sunday, please register with me at romeoyhau@hotmail.com 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. 

    Please note this is only for reference and actual programs time may change without notice.

    November 7, 2021 HKJU Zoom Event

    Originally, we hope the pandemic situation will be improved and we will organize in-person event in the fall. We even had reserved a restaurant on Sunday Oct 31, 2021 to hold our annual gala dinner. However, things are not going our way and there is still uncertainty ahead. To play safe for everyone, we had reluctantly cancelled our booking and hope we can resume in 2022.

    Being said that, HKJU went ahead to organize another Zoom event on Sunday, Nov 7, 2021 from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm. Details are to be announced later and you all are welcome to join. In the event, there is a talent quest item, we hereby appeal to HKUAAO alumni who don’t mind to share their talent like singing, musical instrument performance, magic, dance etc. It will be a pre-taped performance and this will be shown during the Zoom event. Please contact Augustine Chan (416-930-3666) or Romeo Au (416-529-3361) if you are interested.
