|At this point everyone in the room knew what was going on,|
|Appeared as it by magic!!|
A traditional gong was brought onto the stage, and when struck, the room went mad and the parade began. The University dignitaries and guests led the parade out of the hall unable to hear themselves think.

I left after about 4 hours with the festivities still going on, not only with a bag full of souvenirs, but with a lovely warm glow inside, there was a real fondness for the old building, but also excitement about a new chapter about to begin.
On Monday, I spend the day at the HKU Library looking at their new developments, followed by a visit to the Chinese University of Hong Kong on Tuesday.
