Some 420 guests enjoyed a wonderful evening at the 43rd HKUEAA Annual Dinner and Dance (ADD), themed “The Circus”, on January 19, 2019, at Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong. We were honoured to have Ir Dr the Hon Lo Wai-kwok, SBS, MH, JP (Member of the Legislative Council of HKSAR), as our Guest of Honor. We were also privileged to have the company of Mrs Selina Chow, Ir Liu Chun-san, JP (Under Secretary for Development), Professor Christopher Chao (Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, HKU) and other alumni, friends and students joining the event.
The speeches given by Ir Luk Wai-hung, JP (President of the HKUEAA), Ir Raymond Choi (Chairman of the Event Organising Committee), Dr Lo and Professor Chao marked the fabulous opening of the ADD. These were followed by Ir C K Mak’s sharing of the achievements and contributions by our Honorary Life President, the late Dr Chow Ming-kuen Joseph. To commemorate this, the HKUEAA Dr Chow Ming-kuen Joseph Memorial Learning Fund was established.
An interactive magic show by Avon Lee and singing performance by Sara Lee brought the atmosphere of the night to a climax. As for previous years, dancing by guests made this night a memorable occasion for everyone.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude to the old and new friends and guests for their enthusiastic participation, to sponsors for their generous donations, and to the volunteers for their dedicated contributions to make the event possible. We look forward to welcoming you to the ADD in 2020.
