Background in brief
I am a Hong Kong Chinese, born and raised in Hong Kong, Cantonese is my mother tongue and thanks to Kiangsu-Chekiang Primary School and Kindergarten, I speak fluent mandarin since the age of 3. I have 2 elder sisters, so I am the kid-brother in the family. My wife is Irene, we got married in July 2004 :-)

I left Hong Kong when I was 14, I studied and worked in Jersey and Cambridge, UK for 12 years. Upon finishing my PhD at Cambridge, I returned to Hong Kong in Jan 1997 and witnessed the important historic event of Hong Kong returning to our motherland. Since my return to Hong Kong, I have been actively organizing many events with friends.

I love travelling, good food, hiking, movies, reading, hanging out with buddies and making new friends.

Education in brief
I studied in Hong Kong at Kiangsu-Chekiang Primary School & Kindergarten and TWGHs Lee Ching Dea Memorial college, followed by 4-year studies at a UK boarding school called Victoria College, (Jersey, Channel Islands, Great Britain). I was awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for mathematics presented by Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II in 1989.

I lived in Cambridge, England from October 1988 to January 1997 and studied at Trinity College, Cambridge University to read Electrical and Information Science. I obtained a BA (Hon.) degree in 1991 and MA in 1994.
