Our Association celebrated 5 years of existence, on 8 June 2014 at the Treasure Palace Chinese Restaurant in Maddington WA.
More than 200 members and friends came together and had a fun-filled evening, organised by the Executive Council of the Association.
Most notable of the event was the inaugural performance not only in WA but in the whole of Australia, of the Unicorn (Kilin) Kungfu Performance. HakkaWA has successfully launched the first Kilin Troupe in Australia!
There was also Hakka kungfu and Hakka fan kungfu performance by John Chow, Our HakkaWA and Kilin Troupe member.
The HakkaWA Kilin Troupe would like to thank the HakkaWA Kilin Committee who are all donors, sponsors and strong supporters of our Kilin Troupe.
Whereas during the function the Committee members chose not to reveal their names, it is only proper to record our gratitude here for posterity:
- Mr Francis Yapp & Mrs Agnes Yapp
- Dato’ TK and Datin Lilly Yong
- Mr James Ku and Mrs Amy Ku
- Mr Alan Yit and Mrs Lily Kong-Yit
- Mr Norman Chia and Mrs Annie Wong-Chia.
There were also lion dance and kungfu performances by Yarn Yee Tong, led by Master Luong. Other items in the program included Anniversary-cake cutting, lucky dip of attractive prizes for about 20 lucky members.
Many thanks to Juliet Chin (3), Lily Kong-Yit (2), Annie Wong (10), and Datin Lilly Yong (3) for donating the valuable prizes for the lucky draw.
