Alumni Updates
New Book Release


The book details how alumnus Albert Au (Communication) has grown and flourished with the Hong Kong music industry since the 70s. He also shares his treasurable and fond memories with superstars and buddies in the old days. Every song mentioned in the book reminds Hong Kong people of their sweet memories.

Alumna Lee Yuk-lan (Sociology) recently launched a new book which detailed her WWOOFing (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) experience in Australia and New Zealand. She joined the programme together with her mother and took the opportunity to better understand the latter’s bitter experience during her early life. She and her mother gained mutual understanding after the trip. The last part of the book is a specific section on tips for potential participants of WOOFing. The programme is different from the Working Holiday Scheme in challenges posed and overall experience. In addition, there is no age limit.
