    • Words from Residence Master To All My Dear Academians 2011-12 has been a wonderful year again for many Academi- ans residing newly in or returning to Jockey Club Academy Hall (JCAC). I have received comments like “I love the dynamic at- mosphere in Hall 4(JCAC) and the kindness and caring from all these people living here” from among you, Academians, sharing with me your delight of having been assigned to JCAC and yourjoy of living here. In fact, it is the support and love of you, Academians, for the hall during theyear that you have made JCAC a great place for living and learning.It was my honour and privilege that I have been appointed as the residence master of JCACsince its infant stage. Having served in this position for seven years, I witnessed the rapid devel-opment of JCAC with notable achievements in both services and activities under the guidance,hard work and commitment of the many Residence Tutors and the Residents Association Execu-tive Committees and Councillors who have contributed immensely to the welfare and benefitsof fellow Academians in the past years. With the unfailing support of all the Academians, I amproud to say that JCAC is a well-groomed young adult today like your very self, having its Aca-demian culture and values firmly established and moving steadily ahead with its vision of provid-ing a happy second home to all residing under its roof.As many of you may know already, I have decided to relinquish my duties as your residencemaster at the end of this academic year. It has been a difficult decision for me to make. Withless attention given to JCAC due to my growing engagements elsewhere, I feel that I may notbe fulfilling my duties as a residence master to your expectation. Despite my strong interest inworking together with young people, I think this may be the appropriate time for me to let gothis meaningful job which I love so much, and to move on focusing more on my other areas ofcommitment.I treasure greatly the time that I have spent in JCAC. I have countless happy moments hereliving and learning together with every one of you. I hope you feel the same as I do and willcherish the many acquaintances that you have made in JCAC, and continue with these re-lationships as your life-long friends who can share your happiness and sorrows with you as youprogress with your many life tasks in the future.Thank you all for giving me my fond memories of JCAC! It is because of you that JCAC has be-come one of the best halls on campus which is well known for its energy and multifarious activi-ties, harmony and integration of residents coming from a diverse background, and a strong hallspirit by which Academians will always give their best to strive for the good name of JCAC ina united front. I do believe that JCAC can only go from strength to strength from this point on-wards, with the concerted efforts of all Academians - past, present and future.Once an Academian, always an Academian! May I wish JCAC and all Academians every ac-complishment in the years ahead.Farewell and best wishes to you all,PeggyYour residence masterMay 2012 3

He likes to go out for a dinner with the residents on his floor, mutually talking andgatherings. Like I needed to think of sharing his valuable experiences while at the same time giving ample advice to those who seek them. While 10th floor remains welcoming, it is also very lively; not during the day, butwhat to eat, what most floor mates during when the daylight is out. At any time during the night, one could hear the screechingpreferred and so on. However, I and ear-breaking female scream given out that you would never forget or the sound ofwas not alone as other floor mates footsteps of people chasing each other around in the corridor trying to chase someone oro f f e r e d h e l p .

Floor mates were eager to help decorate the common room having hotpot or cooking food together merrily or joking around whilecommon room, buy gifts and suggest what to eat. We all had fun in the Party. watching the television.I’d say I have met a lot of friends through organizing gatherings. And it’s glad to see 10th floor is like no other floor, it is the most excellent.people enjoy gatherings that I held. Being the floor representative is a nice experiencethat paints my hall life. Before moving in to hall4, whenever it came to the question why we have to live in dormitory, I would say, well, we can rush down to the campus and therefore sleep more. But after experiencing hall life in this academic year, my answer to it has been changed. Hall life lets me know so many more friends from different nationalities and disciplines, makes me lear n to take care of myself and people around me, and more importantly, has colored my university life. Our floor, 9 for life, is a floor filled with energetic and sweet girls. Our halltutor, Kinki, sings like an angel. Suki is a TV drama fan who likes watching TV in commonroom. Katie is a pretty girl with sweet smile. Jenny is talkative and energetic all the time.Ming is tall and yet very cute. Ballchi, I like the way she laughs because it somehowmakes me laugh too. Lai Lai plays sports more than brilliantly. Fish, I like the way we shareour food. Tracy, you are beautiful no matter with long or short, straight or curly hair.

This commonly favoured sport had attracted the participation of our local, mainland and also international students, who together had formed a strong team. We had quite a number of practice sessions at the football pitches at Shek Kip Mei Park and the Joint Sports Centre whereon our teamwork was made perfect.   Finally there came the date of competition, 29th October 2011. Our opponent was Alumni Civility Hall (Hall 3). Similar to us, they had also formed a team comprising interna- tional and local students. Upon kick-off, our players had found out that the opposing team was so well in maintaining possession. Our players did try our best to make a breakthrough from the situa- tion but it was fruitless. We were therefore under attack almost in the whole match.

    • Chief EditorWhat was this hall book made of? Well,thoughts and creativity, sacrifice andcontribution, laughter and tear, time andefforts... Creami Tsui I t has been a long year of working with all members in my Eric Wan Ka Wing hall book team! Not until when you are reading this article, will you be able to get a general idea of how hall book was made. 905B 206A We have a team of reporters, who are the youngest, the most energetic and the most patient members of the hall. Whenever year 1 year 3 hall event was coming, text messages or emails were crazily sent out from me to them, confirming with each reporter his or her availability. Sometimes, these reporters have to undertake reporting tasks at the very last minute – during the event, because I simply spot them on the scene and arrange them to write up a report about the event right afterwards. Therefore, it is my great pleasure and honor to have all the reporters working with me in the team. Editors After the reports are done drafting reports, the editors would Lawrence Lau diligently edit the reports word by word, making them into Ka-yeung fluent, accurate articles that are easy to read. I am sincerely grateful to all the editors, as they all did wonderful job. Not only were they attentive to the details, but they were also the ones who are always able to follow strictly with our publication 101A schedule. Therefore, they deserve a thumb-up! year 3 Last but definitely not the least, the designers are incredible! They have to be the last to start working on their assigned tasks, while their tasks are definitely the most difficult ones. Not only did they have to be patient enough to cater all the details, but they were requested by me to unify their styles as well as to make amendments on their work from time to time. The designers were still fighting with the page layouts during the last three weeks of the semester, postponing their own assignment and revision tasks to the last one week. What was this hall book made of? Well, thoughts and creativity, Michael Lau Ka Hei sacrifice and contribution, laughter and tear, and above all, large amount of time and efforts devoted into their work by each hall book team member, which I have to proudly tell every resident of JCAC: THIS is “Made in JCAC”! 707B year 366 67
