On the night of 24 February, the weather in Taipei was chilly. However, the ballroom of the Regent Taipei overflowed with warmth and laughter, as nearly 100 alumni and faculty members of CUHK Business School gathered for Chinese New Year.

This celebration was the first alumni event in Taiwan co-organised by the Alumni and Corporate Affairs Office and the CUHK Business School Taiwan Alumni Association. As the host of the event, Business School Dean Prof. Kalok Chan kicked things off with a traditional “kung hei fat choy” blessing and expressed his gratitude to all the guests. “I am very impressed by the many alumni tonight who graduated from different programs. I give my thanks to the united and loyal Taiwan alumni community, who have consistently supported the Business School over the years. My special thanks also go to Dr. Wei Jung-Tsung, Chairman of the Taiwan Alumni Association, for his leadership, and the time and resources he devoted to make this event happen.”

Dr. Wei smiled and stated, “We are proud to be part of the CUHK Business School family. We were taught to be great leaders, not just for our businesses, but also for our society. Our alumni in Taiwan love giving back to their alma mater. We are all very excited to be here and are grateful that faculty members flew to Taiwan to celebrate the Year of the Dog with us.” 

Prof. Kalok Chan then led a toast along with Dr. Wei and Prof. Wong Suk Ying, the CUHK Associate Vice-President, before the guests enjoyed a banquet of Taiwanese delicacies. Afterwards, attendees watched two fascinating performances: a Chinese magic show by Xinmagic and a yo-yo demonstration by Mr. Yang Yuan-Ching, whose skills earned him a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. 

“It’s always delightful to meet old and new friends. Alumni are valuable assets of our Business School. We will continue reaching out to the community and engaging our alumni around the world,” said Ms. Florence Lai, the Alumni and Corporate Affairs Director.

2月24日晚上,台北天氣寒冷。然而,台北晶華酒店宴會廳內卻洋溢着歡聲暖意,近100位中大商學院校友和院校成員聚首一堂,共度新春。

這是校友及企業事務辦公室與中大商學院台灣校友會聯合主辦的首次活動。作為活動主禮人,中大商學院院長陳家樂教授用普通話以傳統的一句「恭喜發財」為活動掀開序幕,並向所有來賓表示感謝。「今晚,來自不同課程的眾多畢業校友齊集一起,讓我留下深刻印象。我要感謝一向團結和忠誠的台灣校友多年來一直支持中大商學院,還要特別感謝台灣校友會理事長魏榮宗博士投入時間和資源,協助成功籌辦這次活動。」

魏博士開心地回應:「我們很榮幸成為中大商學院大家庭的成員。我們受教育成為傑出領袖,不僅是為了自己的事業,也是為了我們的社會。台灣校友熱愛母校。很高興今晚濟濟一堂,並感謝各位院校成員飛來台灣與我們一起慶祝狗年。」

陳家樂教授、魏榮宗博士和中大協理副校長王淑英教授一起帶領祝酒後,大家便共晉晚餐,一起享用台灣美饌。隨後,與會者觀賞了兩場精彩表演,包括由魔力宏娛樂公司帶來的中國戲法,以及健力氏世界紀錄保持者楊元慶先生的花式搖搖表演。
