Albert Wong Kam-hong is bouncing back from tragedy in his own unique way. The 50-year-old former deputy chairman of Midland Holdings is set to soon emerge from a one-year self-imposed hibernation to build a Noah's Ark, complete with animals, in the central Philippines.

Finders of the lost ark

Depending on whom you ask, it's either the most amazing find in history - or a massive practical joke. On one side is Noah's Ark Ministries International (Nami), who have claimed, on several occasions, to have found remnants of the biblical Noah's ark. On the other - this group is a lot larger - are sceptics who think the discovery is nothing more than a big hoax.

A park full of wonders

My class recently visited Noah's Ark in Ma Wan for our life-wide learning day. It was an unforgettable experience.

We headed up to Hilltop Lookout. Since it is so high, I had a beautiful view of Ma Wan. The houses looked like matchboxes. Then we went to the Heritage Centre to look at the historical relics which were discovered in Ma Wan.

Season for singles

SO that was spring, when men's thoughts allegedly turn to love, and all around me my friends' thoughts turn to depression. Is there a connection here? I think so.
