What's happening around the Sam Shing - Gold Coast - Sham Tseng area in September?

After taking a summer break in August, we have plenty of news from around the area.

Happy Mid-Autumn Festival

Falling on the 15th day of the 8th month according to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Mid-Autumn Festival is the second grandest festival after the Spring Festival in China. It takes its name from the fact that it is always celebrated in the middle of the autumn season.

The day is also known as the Moon Festival, as at that time of the year the moon is at its roundest and brightest.

Poor Service Award - MedStars

Find out why MedStars has now lost $2,000 per month revenue because of $24 and exceptionally poor customer service. The full story is on our front page.

Local Beaches - Closed, Re-opened and Crocodiles!

August saw all beaches from Tuen Mun to Tsuen Wan closed and then re-opened because of a sewage leak. Perhaps it was no bad thing as a crocodile was allegedly sited on a beach in Siu Lam, just 1 kilometre from the Gold Coast!

Nick Miller


Many parents and children will remember Nick Miller, who was the Principal of the YHKCC. Nick and his wife Alison moved to Singapore where, sadly, Nick has been diagnosed with ALS - Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease. ALS is very much in the news at present because of the Ice Bucket Challenge which aims to raise funds for research in to a cure.

Unfortunately Nick is faced with huge medical bills and so his friends have set up a PayPal fund to help Nick and Alison bear the burden. If you would like to make a more positive contribution than wasting water and ice then please log on to PayPal.com and then reference the account of This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

New Medical Practice Coming to the Gold Coast

Marina Medical Practice will open on the 1st floor of the Gold Coast Piazza in October.

Good Service Mention

Due to an engine immobiliser problem my car had to be towed to the garage, and then from there to the Mazda service centre in Tokwawan. I had had Mr. Lee of Kwong Chak Towing Co. recommended to me, and I am more than happy to give him a good service mention for towing my car on both occasions. Mr. Lee speaks excellent English, and is prompt and efficient.

No-one wants to have to use a tow-truck, but it's always handy to have a number in your phone 'just in case'. You can reach Mr. Lee at 9082 0901
