The Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon took place amidst drizzles and torrents at times, making more treacherous the miles traversed by the quick feet of the CUHK runners. A week later, the thermometer plummeted to a record low. The plain truth that emerged is, when cold is served up with wet, a fitting fabric is what makes the difference. In this issue the Newsletter brings you a warming story of fabrics. Mr. Philip Sin, a CUHK alumnus, and his wife Betty run a successful garment business. Their love of sports led them to design and produce sports uniforms for Mr. Sin’s alma mater, a most visible form of support and tangible token of care. CUHK marathoners and golfers now wear their appreciation and pride for all to see. We also trace the supply line of philanthropy to the service learning programmes at CUHK developed by Prof. Steven Ngai. Our students learn to serve the less advantaged sectors of society and in serving learn about how human beings could look after each other. We look at a sample of how good deeds are interwoven into their learning experience. At CUHK, even if you are a Rhodes Scholar, you are not exempted from volunteer work. Listen to Serena Dai ( right ), who is equally passionate about her pro bono work and her lab work. Readers will also see in a glance the path she’s taken to join the prestigious league of the Rhodes Scholars. 勇敢築夢 (頁10) Dare to Dream ( p. 10 ) Photo by ISO staff 本刊下期(四七三期) 將於3月4日出版 The CUHK Newsletter will take a break and resume publication on 4 March
