Photos by Frank Barazzuol: “TRIBUTE TO AWARD-WINNING AUTHOR WAYSON CHOY” the Jade Peony, Chinese banquet on October 14, 2012, Faye Leung was one of the speakers. And October 15, 2012 Project Bookmark Canada installed 2 ceramic plaques, a passage in both English & in Chinese at SE corner of Pender East & Gore Ave, Vancouver Chinatown Where Wayson Choy’sThe Jade Peony’s had its start.
 
Faye Leung and Wayson “Sonny” Choy’s childhood neighbor grew up in Chinatown where Wayson are known only as “Sonny Choy.”  Both attended Strathcona School, Wah Kiu and Kwong Gee Chinese Public School was 25 feet from the aforesaid 2 plagues installed…at was Chuck Lew’s Paramount Gas Station also was our ‘kids’ playground during Chinese School’s recesses.  Wayson “Sonny” told me when we met up again at his UBC lecture April 11, 2010 he attended “Kuo Min Tang” Chinese Public School, he was going to burn down.  Its really “Wah Kiu Chinese Public School” at the 3rd floor of the Kuo Min Tang Building 529 Gore Ave, aforesaid Pender Street corner.  We kids then bought for one cents 4 pieces candies, and 5 cents ice cream cones at Jong Wah corner store in the building.
 
When the Jade Peony launched as: “Wayson Choy of Toronto” was of no concern to us: as “The East is the East, The West is the West, the Twain never meets”…..mark twain….!!    Wayson Choy’s name then did not ring the bell as in Vancouver he’s Chinese known only as “Sonny Choy” … Now we know Wayson is the same Sonny Choy…we’re truly proud of his accomplishments joy achieved.  Its not only an honour for him but an honor to all the Chinese pioneers & Chinese Canadians, all Canadians and one of Canada's best renowned novelist!!
    Thanks zillions Frank Barazzuol for your surprise photographs as follows:
