On 21st September, 2016, the House Association of Stanley Ho East Asia College (SHEAC) organized a Charity Show cum Bazaar at the outdoor foyer on the Residential College Island One. With more than one month’s preparation work, including a series of selection trials and rehearsals, the event comprised various types of performances, such as piano, singing, martial art, dance and band show. Students also made cookies and different kinds of snacks to sell at the venue to raise money for needy families and children in remote areas of Sichuan and Yunnan – the destinations of the College’s annual service-learning trips.
On that evening, talented and enthusiastic students offered very entertaining and professional performances to the audience. Thomas Iong and Lillian Shih served as emcees of the charity show. Lily Hu and Miko Jin performed a piano duet on a Mandarin pop song “Those Years”. Joshua Aquino Aslarona sang “Think about You.” Leo Ng’s martial art of Chen-style Tai Chi sword combined both strength and gentleness, with fast and slow movements, demonstrating the beauty of harmony in the Chinese philosophy. Students Aiden Chan and Irene Che, Chang Cheng Yee and Kylian Fu, as well as Karrie Wong and Tang Chi Ian (KARRIEnIAN) respectively formed pairs to perform duet singing. The band Anonymous performed a number of pop songs, leading the atmosphere to new heights. Ahri Gao danced solo; while Robin Yu presented an amazing magic show.
The audience were also attracted by the handicrafts and delicious snacks made by SHEAC students. A student helper said although he had to stand for over two hours at the bazaar booth, and felt quite tired, he was very glad that he made use of his own effort to help those in need. The event successfully raised more than MOP3,000 for service recipients in Sichuan and Yunnan.By: Communication Working Group of SHEAC House Association Li Zhidong, Wallace, Economics Year 1 (English) Sun Tuo, Tony, Mathematics Year 1 (Chinese)
