We had visiting Rotarians Mark Wang and Roland Jossi from Rotary Club of Singapore, the oldest club in Singapore and also one of the sister clubs of our sister club, RC Taipei, visited us last Thursday. Rtn. Mark, who met many of us at the RC Taipei’s annual balls in the past 2 years, found our members the most joyful crowd cos our laughter was the loudest in the ball, decided to visit us one of these days. Rtn. Roland has moved to HK but decided not to transfer his membership to any of the clubs in HK. Inspired by this, Rtn. Yuko suggested we shared the below music video in the meeting just for fun only, which brought us lots of laughter. That’s really interesting and Yuko said she showed this to her students to encourage them to speak English and not to worry if it’s Chinglish la. The evening was filled with laughter again with added jokes from PP Ip and the box collection was topped up and matched by PPs Choi, Fred, Keith, Peter and P Sam to $3,000 which was started with Peter for his agreeing with Fred for the first time, though I already forgot what he agreed Fred with.
Rotary HK Ultra-Marathon (RUM) last Sunday
2 teams from RC Macau registered for the RUM which was held on 5th March at Lung Wo Road, Central in HK. The team with mentally-ill rehabilitated patients from Fu Hong was sponsored by us and there was the other group with participation from our Rotaractors. As quoted from the face book of Sam that a service user told him,”This is a very good road to run as there are high rise buildings on both sides ahead. I got a target to follow. Looking up to follow the target is much more comfortable. It would be really tough for me if I have to look down on the ground while running. I would not have made it.” I hope we can plan earlier next year to involve more runners from our Club to participate in this signature District project.
