Following our transport strategy which designates railways as the backbone in Hong Kong, the metro network has been growing organically, attempting to reach every populated corner in the territory. Several extension networks are now being built in full swing. Each presents itself as a complicated yet interesting story involving engineering, geography and humanity, especially for the recently opened West Island Line which routes underground through some of the most historical districts.
Daniel Li (K76) is going to share with us some tidbits and anecdotes about the West Island Line project as an insider. You're welcome to bring some more stories or simply to enjoy some fun facts behind the scene.
Please note that this month's happy hours will be held on the 4th Thursday instead of the usual third one, because of venue arrangement.
Date: 23 Apr 2015 (Thu)
Time: 6:30pm to any time you like
Venue: China Coast Bar, 3/F, Mariners' Club, 11 Middle Road, Tsim Sha Tsui (Tel: 23688261)
Theme: Tidbits and Anecdotes of MTR West Island Line 趣談港鐵港島線西延
Speaker: Daniel Li
Buy your own drink. About HK$20 per drink
Happy Hours Gathering is a regular casual occasion held on the third Thursday of each month. It lets old boys from SFX Kowloon and Tsuen Wan have a drink after a day's work and enjoy chatting with old buddies or any new friends, about our theme or anything beyond. There's no need to register. Just come!
Many old boys joined this event in the past as their first re-appearance to connect with our Alma Maters. Don't feel shy if you're new to alumni activities, because we all carry one thing in common: the heritage of SFX!
Best Regards and See you,
