My Family

I must say I am a very lucky man to have a very happy family. My parents are very traditional Chinese and indeed they are, very responsible to the family. They had spent their whole lives’ efforts to take care of their children. They are 84 and 81 of age now and are living with my family.

I was married to Winnie in 1974. For more than 30 years, she was a very sophisticated woman with perseverance and very determined mind . We went through many ups and downs and she could always help me to overcome problems and share d with me the success of achievements.

My two sons, Andy and Willie, like most young people, love to follow the trend . For the sake of narrowing our gap, I pushed myself to learn a lot about pop songs and fancy items such as computer, mp3, game machines, fashionable wears and whenever they came back home, we could share very happy times together like very good friends.

My brothers and sisters: it is hard to believe that we are all working together and even, my brothers and sisters ‘in law’ are helping our family companies. I am a proud leader of my family and my leadership philosophy is to give before you get. I had appointed them as directors and giving them company shares. I help them to have their own apartments, cars before I could have. And so, they are so willing to work wholeheartedly for our family companies.
