Members would no doubt notice the series of activities which has been organized since mid-2007 to celebrate SHPHK’s 20 years of establishment. With the staging of the 20th Anniversary Gala Dinner on 22nd February 2008 at Club Regency, Hongkong International Trade & Exhibition Centre, Kowloon Bay, all celebratory activities were joyously drawn to a close.

The dinner event was filled with happy memories from the presence of about one hundred attendants including our Special Guest of Honour, Mr. Daniel Ho, our founding president, who flew in from his work place in USA to join us specially for the celebration.

Our Masters of Ceremony for the Gala Dinner were Helen Hui and Charles Lo and they did a splendid job introducing every program of the entire dinner event which began with our present president - Kim Ng joined by Daniel Ho, Michael Ling and Benjamin Lee all of whom had served as the past presidents of the Society to officiate the opening ceremony.

Our fond memories were refreshed with the multi-media video show depicting our society’s major achievement and milestones in the past twenty years. We found old and new faces of our members, past and present as we enjoyed the melody that went together with the slide show.

As an appreciation for their loyalty, 31 members who have joined the Society since its inception, were presented with a porcelain ‘Mortar and Pestle’ souvenir set. Porcelain has been chosen as it stands for twentieth anniversary, while the mortar and pestle speaks for itself. In recognition of Kim’s tremendous contribution to the Society and the pharmacy profession in the past twenty years, a surprised gift – a dragon made of Chinese Crystal Glass had been prepared at his surprise.

To share the wishes towards the pharmacy profession in the upcoming five years, guests and members were invited to write their well-wishes and visions on a piece of paper and put it into some used medicine bottles. More than eighty bottles were dropped into a large “Time Capsule” before it was sealed by Daniel and Kim on the stage. It is expected that the capsule will be opened in five years’ time at SHPHK’s 25th anniversary celebrations, the Silver Jubilee.

A highlight of the night was the auctioning of the ‘20th Anniversary Heartwarming Stamp Mini-pane’ which bore the autographs of Ms Janet Wong, designer of the 20th Anniversary logo, and the Society’s past and current presidents. Solicitor Chan Tong won the bid at HKD1,200. The proceeds from the sale would go to the education fund of DERC. The dinner rounded up with dancing sessions, singing performance and a bingo game.

Participants enjoyed a meaningful evening and brought home a 3-in-one ball pen souvenir and the 20th Anniversary Commemorative Booklet.

The Organizing Committee would like to thank the President and other Executive Committee members for their advice and support which had contributed to the enjoyable gala dinner event and other celebratory activities. Of course, without members’ active participation and cooperation, we would not have recorded a success in celebrating our 20th anniversary. Here is the photos of the 20th Anniversary dinner for all of you to enjoy:

Let your thoughts travel.

It’s year 2012, in a certain party venue in Hong Kong, SHPHK is celebrating its Silver Jubilee. As one important highlight of the celebration at the start of the program, the society’s President (that might be YOU) officiates a ceremony to open a Time Capsule which was sealed during the SHPHK 20th Anniversary Gala Dinner. One by one, YOU (the President) pick out and unveil the items inside the Time Capsule…

… a 20th Anniversary Heartwarming Stamp Mini-Pane, a 3-in-1 souvenir pen distributed during the Gala Dinner, the Dec 2007 issue of SHP Connection, a CF-II memory card of all the photos taken during the dinner (who knows whether the card would be rendered ‘outdated’ by technologies in 2012), and, a medicinal bottle?… A second medicinal bottle?… And a third… a fourth…

On opening up the medicinal bottles, there are the recorded voices from different members of SHPHK during the course of the 20th Anniversary Celebration Gala Dinner: there are suggestions on the system of health care… predictions on salary levels… opinions on separation of prescribing and dispensing… views on pharmacists’ training… how clinical are we… etc.

Would you like to become one of those who make history? How accurate you will be in predicting the future of Hong Kong’s pharmaceutical profession? Give some thoughts and write down your wish, your thoughts or ideas on a nice strip of paper. Put that strip inside any medicinal bottle (properly cleansed, of course), and bring it to the 20th Anniversary Gala Dinner on 22nd February, 2008, drop it in our Time Capsule and let it wait till 2012….

Five years later, IT MIGHT BE YOU who will be reading out your own far-sighted thinking on stage, only to find out how wise and accurate you have been…

Hong Kong people are famous for being fast and efficient. We seldom have time to stop and reflect upon on life.

It is a wonderful time for us to take short break and review our past challenge and success when we are 20 years coming of age. We have a lot of breakthroughs in many areas in the past twenty years.

This commemorative booklet records the thoughts and memories of pharmacists who have been walking along with us in the past 20 years. The commemorative booklet consists of ten stories shared by 10 storytellers. This book is not only dedicated to old pharmacists who have gone with SHPHK in the past 20 years, but also to young pharmacists with aspiration for the future.

2007 is a special number for SHPHK and its members. Year 2007 is a memorable year for all of us because it is our 20th Birthday! We have already started our celebration series with the Logo and Slogan Design Contests in May. The response was satisfactory and we have received a total of 11 logos and 16 slogans. The judging panel, comprising a professional designer and representatives from the SHPHK, had a hard time in selecting the winner. After thorough consideration, the logo designed by Ms Wong Kit Ting, Janet was chosen and her design will be designated as the official logo for our 20th Anniversary. Janet, who actively participates in various extra curricular activities, is a second year pharmacy student. Janet mentioned that design is one of the great loves of her life.

Concept of the design

“The fire shape in purple and the torch-shaped “20” symbolizes the spirit of SHPHK that would be passed on. The man together with the fire (spirit) forms a heart which expresses that hospital pharmacists provide healthcare service with dedication. The advancing motion of the man and the “20” figure illustrate that SHPHK is entering her 20th year of service and is addressing the future opportunities and challenges” quoted from Janet’s entry form.

We would like to congratulate and offer our heartfelt thanks to Janet. Her invigorating design brings energy and stimulation to our anniversary celebrations. Although there is no winner for the slogan contest, we would also like to take this opportunity to show our appreciation to all logo and slogan design contest participants who have spent tremendous effort on their designs. Without their support, the contest won’t be so successful. Let’s give all of them a round of applause.
