Yesterday, all our troubles seemed so far away

At a time when some Canto-pop stars are mired in controversy, evergreen singer Kenny Bee seems a throwback to a more innocent age. It's 35 years since the guitarist and songwriter first took the stage with local band The Wynners and his blend of pop and romantic balladry has endured while many other stars have faded away.

Those who have been around these parts for a while will surely remember Wong Chong-shan, happy owner of the Irish-bred three-year-old.
