風采電子季刊


Issue 65 www.yeefungtoy.org/newsletter 2020/12/21


















歡迎來到第六十五期的「風采電子季刊」,這是世界余氏宗親團體的電子訊報。

在我們繼續應對全球性的疫情肆虐這段日子,我們的衛生防護意識大大提高。我們勤洗手、戴口罩、保持社交距離,已經成為生活的「新常態」。 在我們生活的各個方面(社會,文化,經濟和政府)都將大不相同。 為遵守各種防疫措施,為防止病毒傳播盡一分力。至少可以說,今年是充滿極大挑戰的一年。

不平凡H二○二○年即將步入尾聲,我們今年已經歷了很多生活方式改變。跳過了很多慶祝活動,取消了計劃好的假期。錯過了在追求茪@切新鲜潮流的里程碑。 當我們進入假期時,毫無疑問,這些看起來也會不一樣。 我們被迫調整我們做每件事的去做。雖然我知道我們都渴望把二○二○年拋在腦後,今年已經不同於任何其他一年。 但我有信心,如果我們能克服二○二○年面臨的挑戰,那麼在二○二一年我們不可能共同克服任何障礙。

這期的「風采電子季刊」活動報告雖然不是很多。但我們要特別感謝廣東省開平市荻海風采堂、泰國余氏宗親總會、 香港余氏宗親會和加拿大余風采總堂們能提供他們堂會活動消息。 當我回顧這一年時,我發現自己充滿了感激之情。因為感激,因為由衷的謝謝,臉上才有最美的微笑,心中才有最珍貴的溫暖。

我們恭祝大家聖誕假期喜樂、安康和友愛。祝願所有人聖誕快樂。

我們秉承精益求精的服務理念,期望你們對本季刊能踴躍提供寶貴的意見和建議, 使我們在來年度製作季刊時能更加進步,更趨完善。再次感謝大家,並請繼續給我們支持和鼓勵!

這期季刊得以順利完成,實有賴於下列余氏宗親和媒體的鼎力相助和衷誠合作,包括:

    • 加拿大温哥華余風采堂的余美湛先生、余金星先生、余佳卓先生。
    • 泰國余氏宗親總會的余紹基先生、余福標先生。
    • 香港余氏宗親會的理事長余偉明先生、香港余風采五堂會秘書李炳佳先生、余健倫先生。
    • 廣東省開平市荻海風采堂的余澤欣先生、余杰鋒先生、余健強先生。
本季刊在這裡向他們致謝。我亦在此期望季刊欣欣向榮。

荻海余靖歷史紀念館揭幕










十月十二日下午三時,荻海風采堂風采樓首層和二層經過近兩個月的精心裝修布展成“余靖歷史紀念館”, 在開平市委書記龐正華、市長馬品高主持下舉行開館儀式。 市紀委監委部分領導班子成員以及部分新任科級領導幹部參加本次活動。

“學名賢•思理政”、“見賢思齊悟修身•借古鑒今思理政”是此次廉潔文化傳承教育活動的主題。

龐正華在活動中指出,我市將歷史文化資源轉化為現實廉政教育資源,建成余靖歷史紀念館,並在全市舉辦“學名賢•思理政”廉潔文化傳承教育活動, 加強黨員幹部的黨性教育和廉政教育,推動形成以廉為榮、 以貪為恥的良好社會風尚,助力推進開平市黨風廉政建設再上新台階。

二○一九年十一月,開平市紀委借荻海風采堂被評為全國重點文物保護單位的契機, 以建設余靖歷史紀念館為重點,對原荻海風采堂廉政教育基地進行升級改造, 並多次與荻海風采堂理事會商討,要求將風采樓首層和二層辦成「余靖歷史紀念館」,在“室”的基礎上升級為“館”, 進一步挖掘北宋名臣余靖勤廉事蹟和廉潔從政思想, 借古鑒今,把余靖的“從政六箴”與新時代好幹部“二十字”標準相結合,啟示和教育新時代黨員幹部廉潔從政, 使風采堂廉政教育基地的教育更具體有時代性和針對性。 由於開平市紀委將風采樓升級改造成為「余靖歷史紀念館」,與荻海風采堂理事會一貫來秉承的緬懷先祖,慎終追遠,弘揚祖德, 傳承祖訓理念是不謀而合,因此二○一九年十一月廿九日, 荻海風采堂理事會理事長余健倫、管委會主任余柏齡與香港部份理事、 內地全體理事開會,最後與開平市紀委達成協定,將風采樓一樓、二樓在不損壞文物、保留原有建築物風貌的基礎上改造成為“余靖歷史紀念館”。

風采樓的升級改造由廣州力天創意產業有限公司設計、施工, 設計的理念是將忠襄公余靖的從政經歷概括為“起•承•轉•合”四大篇章, 由中山大學歷史系曹家齊教授、荻海風采堂理事會顧問、原中山大學歷史系教授、東南亞歷史研究所所長余定邦提供資料及審核布展內容, 荻海風采堂理事會同時也提供部分圖片和文字資料,風采堂管委會負責監督全程施工, 經過近兩個月的精心施工,如今風采樓首層和二層展館佈置一新, 展覽內容以圖文並茂、聲光同步加以超大型 LED 顯示螢幕形式,將忠襄公余靖如何勤政為民、清正廉明的品德, 他的後裔如何在各領域中有出色的建樹,也將在“余靖歷史紀念館” 以嶄新的形式展示出來。

荻海風采堂舉行名賢余忠襄公誕辰二○二○年祭祖慶典活動








金秋十月,桂花飄香,二○二○年十月廿四日上午,來自台山、開平、廣州、 深圳的忠襄公後裔近一百三十人齊聚荻海風采堂, 他們滿懷虔誠之心,敬祖感恩之情, 參加紀念太祖忠襄公誕辰一○二○年的慶典活動。

木有本而枝繁,水有源而流長。緬懷祖德,慎終追遠是中華民族的優秀傳統。 太祖忠襄公誕辰至今已一○二○年,繁衍的子子孫孫已四十多代, 據韶關大學二千年粗略統計,其後裔超過一百萬人, 主要分佈在全國十個省份一百四十三個縣市以及全世界二十多個國家和地區, 他們在各個社會領域都有出色的建樹,對國家和社會貢獻卓著的餘氏宗親不計其數。 自從二○一○年重修名賢余忠襄公祠(荻海風采堂)竣工以來,風采堂每年都舉行春、秋兩祭儀式,邀請海外、港澳及內地宗親參加。 今年是太祖忠襄公誕辰一○二○年, 但由於“新冠疫情”肆虐全球至今仍未緩解,所以此次秋祭活動海外和港澳宗親無法回鄉參加, 而邀請荻海風采堂周邊的余氏村委會主任以及荻海風采堂理事會部份顧問、 風采月刊社部份社編委、 參與《台開余氏村落簡志》的編寫人員以及風采堂國內理事共計近一百三十人參加。

是日上午吉時,祭祖儀式在風采堂中殿三進大廳太祖忠襄公銅像前舉行, 祭祖大廳莊嚴肅穆,拜桌上擺放著由台山同樂余維燦、余漢民宗親敬奉的金豬, 台山六槐余德明宗親敬奉的「三牲」,香燭點燃, 祭祖儀式由余海鷹理事主持,首先全體人員肅立,向忠襄公銅像三鞠躬, 然後依次在太祖忠襄公銅像前獻上金豬、金鵝、金雞、鮮果、美酒、鮮花、寶帛, 祭文由年逾八十旬的余澤欣理事宣讀,最後全體祭拜人員再次向忠襄公銅像三鞠躬後依次上香行禮拜揖, 整個祭祖儀式莊重有序進行, 最後在由台山五圍余森暢宗親贊助的禮炮鳴炮中禮成,然後參加祭祖慶典的全體宗親在風采堂前合照留念。

在余文海、余錦照的引導下余艾冰院士跨過一進中門參觀了風采堂中殿、 “余靖歷史紀念館”、“南粵余氏歷史室”和籌建中的“風采藝苑”, 他對風采堂的建築工藝十分讚賞,他說;離開母校四十多年,從一進門那一刻到現在站在這裡,每一個地方都是值得回憶,都充滿了我以前的足跡, 我全都在這裡玩耍過,打過球、讀過書。以前印象這裡僅僅是一間學校, 對祠堂沒有什麼概念,如今經余氏族人募集經費和政府的大力支援修復,現在更加恢宏壯觀。 在太祖忠襄公的銅像前, 余艾冰院士依照傳統習俗,向忠襄公虔誠上香行禮三鞠躬。在參觀最近裝修布展的“余靖歷史紀念館”時,他對開平市政府一直以來支援風采堂修繕、 大力弘揚祠堂文化、廉政文化、 促進百年風采堂在文化傳承方面發揮積極社會影響力的做法給予充分肯定。

在參觀“南粵余氏歷史室”過程中, 余錦照副主任簡單向他介紹風采堂重修的過程,他對荻海風采堂在傳承傳統文化方面所做的工作給予高度的評價, 也對余氏歷史感觸深厚,很有自豪感,在參觀籌建中的《風采藝苑》展室時, 余艾冰院士說我以前就是在間課室讀書的。 荻海風采堂理事會希望他提供個人資料和研究專著, 進一步豐富“南粵余氏歷史室”的館藏,他表示支援。 最後余文海副理事長代表風采堂理事會向余艾冰院士贈送一本《風采堂》及《風采月刊》, 並分別與母校風采中學校長、老師、荻海風采堂理事會部分理事合照留念。

Welcome to the 65th issue of the Yee Fung Toy Global Village Voice, an electronic newsletter for the World Yee community. In this issue we are featuring Summer activities from the Yee family associations around the world.

As 2020 comes to a close, we, at Yee Fung Toy Global Village Voice would like to extend our wishes to you and your family, for a most wonderful Holiday Season. Thank you for your continued support. We are proud to serve such loyal and discerning readers.

We’ve been through a lot this year. We’ve skipped celebrations. We’ve canceled vacations. We’ve missed out on milestones. As we head into the holidays, there’s no doubt those will look different too. We’ve been forced to adjust how we do just about everything. And while I know we’re all anxious to put 2020 behind us, as I look back on the year, I find myself filled with gratitude.

This year has been unlike any other. But I am confident that if we can overcome the challenges we’ve faced in 2020, there is no obstacle we can’t conquer together in 2021.

It’s been a challenging year, to say the least. And with the continued need for physical distancing, mask-wearing and rigorous hand washing, this holiday season will be unlike any other. In keeping with the Provincial, State and Government Health Officer’s orders, we encourage you to celebrate only with those in your households, and avoid non-essential travel. We wish you all a happy, healthy, safe holiday.

We thank all those who have made contributions to this issue, including:

  • Jim Yee, James Yu and George Yee of Vancouver
  • Worachai Aurprayoon and Fook Biu Yu of Thailand
  • Bing Kai Lee, Johnson Yee and Wei Ming Yu of Hong Kong

Academician Aibing Yu visited DiHai Fung Toy Hall












On the Sunday afternoon of November 15th, Professor Aibing Yu, (Vice Chancellor's Professorial Fellow, Pro Vice-Chancellor and President - Suzhou Department of Chemical Engineering), accompanied by Kaiping City leader Xu Yongfeng and Yu Rongshu, visited our DiHai Fung Toy Hall and his alma mater - Fengcai Zhongxue (Fung Toy Middle School).

Under the guidance of Yu Wenhai and Yu Jinzhao, Yu Aibing visited the Fung Toy Hall, the Yee Jing Historical Memorial Museum, the Yee's History Room in Southern Guangdong province and the "Fung Toy Art Garden" (under planned construction), and he greatly appreciated the architectural work of the Fung Toy Hall. He said: "Having more than forty years away from my alma mater, from the moment I entered the door to now standing here, every place is worth remembering, full of my previous footprints, I have been studying, reading books and playing sports here."

" My previous impression here is only a school, there is no concept of the hall, now by the Yee clan people to raise funds and the government's strong support to renovate, now more magnificent. In front of the bronze statue of ZhongXiang Gong".

Yu Aibing, in accordance with traditional customs, bowed three times to ZhongXiang Gong. During his visit to the Yee Jing Historical Memorial Hall, which was recently renovated, he gave full recognition to the Kaiping Municipal Government's long-standing support for the renovation of the Hall, the vigorous promotion of the culture of the Hall, the culture of integrity, and the promotion of the 100-year-old Fung Toy Hall to play an active social influence in cultural heritage.

Professor Aibing Yu was doing his PhD in metallurgy when his eyes were opened to the complex field of particle research, beginning a rapid career trajectory with profound impact in both academia and industry.

One of the most influential experts in chemical and process engineering globally, Professor Yu’s particular focus lies in particle science – the physics behind how the tiny specks that make up much of our universe behave and interact. In three decades of sustained contribution, he has led the development of advanced simulation and modelling techniques that have brought greater understanding to the field and driven new applications that impact our everyday lives.

As the President, Professor Yu leads the Monash Suzhou campus which is a joint venture with Southeast University (SEU). Monash is the first and thus far, the only Australian university who has got the approval from the Chinese Government to establish a postgraduate research school in China. The joint venture is composed of a SEU-Monash Joint Graduate School and a Joint Research Institute and provide a research hub for about 1,500 research students, aiming to become a world-class research and training centre in China.

Professor Yu has developed research collaboration with various industrial organizations including Bluescope Steel, BHP-Billiton, Alcoa, Xstrata, BMA, ACARP, Johnsons and Johnsons, Minco Technologies, Cement Australia, Rio Tinto, Weir Minerals and many overseas R&D organizations such as Kawasaki Steel (Japan), China Steel (Taiwan), POSCO (South Korea), Tata Steel (India), BaoSteel, Longking and JITRI (China).
