We have gone everywhere in the Bay Area during the trip: 'dot coms', schools, shopping centres, financial district, civil centre and famous tourist attractions. We have many kinds of meals in this multicultural city. Nearly everyday, different alumni would be our host, as they drove us everythere and we talked about everything, from current affairs to recent news about our schools.


Leon and I were student ambassadors chosen by the Past Students' Association (PSA) of Wah Yan College, Hong Kong (WYCHK) and Kowloon (WYK) respectively. The PSA of WYCHK originally launched it in 1986. In 1990, both PSAs of two Wah Yan Colleges started co-organizing this scheme. Every year, all form six students elect three Outstanding Students, one of which becomes student ambassador. I was honoured to be the eleventh student who represented WYK in my trip to San Francisco.

San Francisco is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. People here love to challenge – 'Beat Generation' was started by San Francisco's poets, hippies in Haight-Ashbury, Homosexual Revolution in the 70s. 'Even people who hate the USA love San Francisco,' I would say.

Our Arrival

Leaving the gate 'arrival' at ten past six on the evening. Conrad Chan recognized Leon and me immediately; we greeted each other. It was cold outside. We felt better while we got in his and said goodbye to 14 ° C temperature outside.

Once we arrived at Conrad's home and laid down our luggage, we went to ABC seafood Restaurant for dinner. Edwin Law (president of the Association), and Stephen Luk (Past-president) and Mrs. Luk. We updated everyone with the recent news of our school.
