Beware of paper in the back window of your vehicle

From Keith Leung


Heads up everyone! Please, keep this circulating...
You walk across the parking lot, unlock your car and get inside.
You start the engine and shift into Reverse.
When you look into the rearview mirror to back out of your parking space, you notice a piece of paper stuck to the middle of the rear window. So, you shift into Park, unlock your doors, and jump out of your car to remove that paper (or whatever it is) that is obstructing your view.
When you reach the back of your car, that is when the car jackers appear out of nowhere, jump into your car and take off.
They practically mow you down as they speed off in your car.
And guess what, ladies? I bet your purse is still in the car.
So now the car jacker has your car, your home address, your money, and your keys. Your home and your whole identity are now compromised!
If you see a piece of paper stuck to your back window, just drive away.

Remove the paper later. And be thankful that you read this e-mail.
I hope you will forward this to friends and family, especially to women.

A purse contains all kinds of personal information and identification documents, and you certainly do NOT want this to fall into the wrong hands.

Hi Victor
Yes. That's the last we heard of Patrick and Raymond Tchou too
If you have any old photos or recent photos of our classmates at reunion or Yuet Wah I would appreciate seeing them.
I took my wife and kid there many years ago just to see where I went to school
I have often wondered where all our classmates are and what they are all doing. I forgot so many names
I remember Just you, Raymond and James Lai. But so many other names have escaped me but I can see their faces as plain as day.
Tell me whatever you can about them all.

Glad to hear that Mr. Wong joined you. I do remember how naughty we all were to him.
I can still remember the day someone put those popping fireworks on the raised platform next to the blackboard where teachers had to stand to reach the board.
Mr Chow walked on them and jumped when they popped. He was always mad at us for making his life miserable.
Do you have any pictures from those days??

Hi Keith

Getting the photos of everyone at Yuet Wah motivated me hunt up the diary that I kept while I was in Macau.
I looked up todays' date and here's what I wrote back in this day on May 29, 1961 when we were all in Form III at Yuet Wah.

"Mr. Victal got mad in class today because some of the boys behind the "38th parallel" were talking while he was giving his lessons.
He walked out of the classroom and stayed outside our window. He came in some time later and threatened to go down to Fr. Rubini and lodge a complaint if the boy who was talking didn't volunteer to go to the blackboard and write down the lesson as punishment.
He counted to ten.
When he got to ten and no one confessed he stormed out of the room again.
Shortly he came back in and gave us all "one final warning."
At last Lo Wing Yu (number 21) stood up to confess. He confessed but showed no remorse."

Thought it might bring back some old memories

Hi Frank
Thanks for the power point with all the photos of Modern Day Macau
I'll have to say the place has really changed.

I use to tell people if they wanted to see what old China looks like to visit Macau
I'm not going to say that anymore.
The place looks so modern and cosmopolitan now.
Like you I didn't recognize anything except a couple of old monuments.
We were last there about 23 years ago so all this has taken place since then because I don't remember seeing anything so modern when I was last there.
I was really impressed...but a little sad that all the cobblestone streets and old buildings are gone.
Victor said our old house is still there, though.

Thanks for the family photo
I put it on the photo album

Victor sent more photos of our old classmates today. I added them. I don't recognize a lot of them so hopefully someone will add their names.
