When Prof. Kao and Mrs. Kao left, they looked so happy and said good bye to all.
After the event, I took a photo inside the auditorium for memory.
I am happy to have a photo with Prof. Yang (BCH Dept., CityU).
During the event, I met Prof. Ching (Chairman of HKCTC) and Dr. TL Ng (Honorary Chairman of HKQAA).
I wish the wave of Prof. Kao could enhance science and technology development in Hong Kong.
