Hi Faye,
Thank you so much. 
You truly are a miracle worker and better than any private investigator!  I hope that my half-sisters would like to meet some time.  I drive up and down from Orange County, California, to the Sunshine Coast, BC.  If my sisters are anywhere on the West Coast, I can go there relatively easily.  The name Sam Sui sounds so familiar from childhood.  My father used to go on and on about Hom-Sui Fau (Vancouver).   Sam Sui was a name that I remember hearing, but cannot place the context.  I will contact him when I am back at the house from a land line.  I am in the office right now, but as soon as I have a block of time to enjoy conversing with Sam-Sui, I will give him a call.  This is most wonderful.

Regards,
May

Hello Faye Leung,

I want to thank you for coming to the Wayson Choy events this past week and
also for sharing with me your stories from your manuscript. You are a
witness to some very important history in a crucial time in your community
here in Vancouver and in the world. Your perspective is unique and I know
that you have an amazing archive of this time, that you have collected over
many years. It's an honour to have had a chance to meet you.

With thanks and best wishes,

Miranda Hill

You should be the Mayor, I  watched all 4 of your videos speeches includes
the 2 videos by the City of Vancouver videos videotaped live as you spoke
are excellent.  I've watched the people and councilors several times of they
all paid attention and listened...I watched their facial expressions too.
I'm very happy hearing you come out with all the names and dates..When asked
you instantly remembers the names is amazing.  I never doubt your writing
knowledge as you are just great as all you've wrote and I've seen them.  The
Mayor was rude interrupted you, you have something important to say and he
should listen..I really wanted to tell you should be very proud of yourself,
we all are proud of you, thank you very much...

Great insight Faye and good history story-telling too; this is a good basis
for the chapter in your book on your business endeavors! Hopefully the Bosa
brothers will accept your excellent suggestion to retain Chinese decor.

So I congratulate you on your attempt below to influence the redevelopment
of your Mandarin Centre area so that it will retain decorations and
exteriors consistent with classical Chinese themes. Your energy and good
will are inspirational

Great insight Faye and good history story-telling too; this is a good basis for the chapter in your book on your business endeavours! More generally, your recitation of history hints at a nasty idea, namely that certain elements in business and government have allowed/enabled/tacitly didn't stop the steady degradation of "Vancouver Chinatown" due to the encroachment of an ugly trade in illegal activities, especially drugs and prostitution,   -- so the "city fathers" were complicit in the destruction of a neighbourhood built by Chinese Canadians and immigrant Chinese. Some people may scoff that the City Fathers would have knowingly enabled that degradation of your neighbourhood but the record of history tells that it did happen and is still happening. The terrible activities of Willie Pickton prove that for many years the Vancouver Police tolerated a serial killer amongst a concentration of drug-addicted prostitutes there, which is not much different from the same police and city fathers tolerating a decades-long degradation of an ethnic enclave on land with potentially very high values being so close to Vancouver's burgeoning downtown so that their friends and insiders could capitalize on it. But hopefully the Bosa brothers will accept your excellent suggestion to retain Chinese decor. So I congratulate you on your attempt below to influence the redevelopment of your Mandarin Centre area so that it will retain decorations and exteriors consistent with classical Chinese themes. Your energy and good will are inspirational

It was really nice meeting you at our Robbie Burns Chinese New Year Banquet on Sunday, Mrs. Leung. I just finished putting all the photographs on my Facebook account to let everybody look at all the photographs and am now sitting down to do the individual ones to send off to people by e-mail.
 
I am enclosing herewith the one I took of you at the Feng Jian Photo Exhibition Launch last Saturday and will be forwarding more from the Banquet when I get around to it the next few days.
 
Your book projects sound really good and if you need anyone to proofread or edit for you, I would be more than happy to work something out with you. I used to be the English Editor at Oxford University Press and am notorious for being meticulous about grammar and sentence structures and all that.
 
Anyway, here is your first photograph to start off.

Faye I think it is wonderful that you are recording your history this way - you have so much to tell! The item about Dave Barrett removing the restrictions is priceless and NOT mentioned in the Meggs-Mickleburg book . . .    plus numerous other passages that reflect a new perspective on the old times. You are getting things down in your own words - getting them down is key; they can be edited later. And you are hitting on important issues too. The passage below contains several snippets of information for a chapter that should be focussed on you,

Dear Faye,                                         My name is Irene, I am an artist from The Nederlands, with Chinese background. I have move to Vancouver (from Belgium) for 6 years now. I have two children, 9 and 13 years. 
I become more attentive with what happens in Chinese community here. So I have heard some wonderful stories about you, via Sid Tan on facebook, and other friends. It wonderful to see you as an Asian woman with strong influence to many of groups and Asian and non Asian people. I'd like to meet you or have an information interview with you. I have an art exhibition in March in UBC (non commercial), And I would like to present you as a role model for many "weak", "dependable" (Asian) women, in an artistic way . Would you agree to meet with me for a coffee chat? Yours sincerely, Irene

However I did notice at the end of the Vander Zalm section that you are seeking sponsors.... Good luck with that too eh.

Thank you Faye for sending the text (Chinese Veterans fought for freedom, Dean & Faye fought for equality & economic developments) which I believe is meant to be a draft of a section of your forthcoming book. It contained a lot of interesting information and would be the basis for a very readable section in a book of similar stories - though they would need a editing as we have previously discussed.
Your book project still intrigues me and I wish you well with it - if you keep on producing chapters like this one you/we could soon have a draft manuscript that could be shopped around to publishers. Though your primary market is British Columbia the potential for producing a best-seller for the Peoples Republic market could be hugely lucrative. And that is only for the first of what could become a series of such books!
Kind regards and best wishes John

Good morning Faye:
Thank you very much for your article that dedicates to the awareness of the `Chinese boys` contribution to the war effort in WW2. Little did these young `Chinese boys` know that their sacrifice many with their lives would let to the changing course of the Canadian government`s policy on Chinese and other minorities` rights in Canada. Not only now Chinese receive the long deserved equalities that they did not have before but other minorities also benefit from these `Chinese boys` who have help to rewrite a bitter page in Canadian history. 
 
Sincerely,
 
Paul

I hope you're enjoying our special coffee, and if you're not, please bug Rick to make sure you get more!

It would be cool to see your hat selection. Have you ever been photographed with you amidst all your hats? If not and you are interested, I could be persuaded to design and do a photo shoot you could use for your books or other publicity use...
 
I was a professional photographer in Edmonton, Alberta in my own business for 11 years - worked in the advertising industry for Baker lovick and goodies Goldberg advertising agencies. I set up, directed, shot and printed photographs for publication- front covers, publication runs of 10,000, ads in Time magazine.....
 
After 20 some years of marriage I am 0
On my own, starting over and needing to find my place and a way to support myself.  I see beauty even when i am not looking things had to stop to photograph you. I have an excellent eye for detail and love to show others the beauty in themselves - as a professional photographer  and/or as  a life coach.
 
Any leads or direction you could provide in this area would be most helpful
 
It was delightful to meet you.

Thank you FayeJ  I am still so happy Kes and I saw you at the bus stop on Georgia the night of the full moon festival – what a blessing that was.
 
What a beautiful picture!  I’m curious, what does the year of the Snake bring for a person born in the year of the Dog like myself??
 
Wishing you continuous prosperity, love and light – which I know you have much of!!

HI Faye
 
I have certainly enjoyed reading your emails with your history here in Vancouver. I must tell you a story when my parents brought my sister and I to the Marco Polo restaurant which you will remember was down stairs at the corner of Pender and Columbia street, Right were Bob Lee had his Channel M building
 
When I walked in at an age of 13 being the same physical size as I am today 5 feet 11 inches tall I took one look at that buffet and said to myself they are going to lose money tonight. Why? I love prawn and I must have eaten one whole tray myself.

Dear Faye!
 
It is a wonderful documentation of the history and precedents in Chinatown, and all of your hard work. I regret that it has been too long since we saw each other last - I have been busy spending time with royalty.  I also found a picture of us from the 2011 Campaign Gala for Joe Carangi.
 
The story of Chinatown made me think that we should get together for dim-sum soon!  
 
How are you keeping and when can we get together?
 
Cheers,
Matt

Thanks so much Faye. No one could forget meeting you.  
 
As many people would agree, you are an important part not only of Chinatown, but of Vancouver's character. 
(also, years ago I had an amazing day with Jack Chow who told me about how he was an "intern" with you).
Hope to see you later this spring.

Looking at your photos, Polly and I congratulate you!
You are still very attractive & have plenty of vital energy. Maybe your work keeps you young?
Taipei city is changing everyday - almost five thousand Chinese Mainlanders come to look at the sight-seeing spots.
For fear of aging, we  exercise quite often to keep our health- as well as
contribute articles to our local newspapers.


Heaven blesses you with longevity & we wish you well !


Sincerely yours,
