The story started from the end of The then Master Ip and I had the same background — coming to Hong Kong alone at nearly the same time. Thus we echoed shonv sharing and felt close to each other. Ip was both solemn and humorous — characteristics admired by me. He was of high caliber in martial arts, yet remained humble, always radiating the glamour of a highly chh Confucian — the virtue, not only admired, but worshipped by me.
Although I liked exercising — for enhancing bodily strength and health — I was not particularly fond of martial arts. Continuously urged by Liang Xiang TN: Lok Yiu in Cantonesemy two seniors in Wing Chun learning, also substantiated by my growing knowledge in Wing Chun, I at last devoted myself to becoming a formal disciple of Ip.

There we sat down to rest for about half an hour before returning. Ip said the night walks could help one fall asleep. I would almost fall asleep right away, while he still wanted to further chat with me — I could only reply up to the third sentence at most before slipping into my dreams.
Ip was optimistic with a youthful heart. He seldom expressed grief and sadness except when occasionally thinking of his family during Chinese festivals. Most of the time he was humorous and often told jokes with a youthful heart. One night in deep winter, Ip and a number of disciples including myself had had a late-night snack.
