Retired Food Retailer

Origin - Hong Kong


Mr. Wai Yiu Pang migrated to the UK in 1961 hoping to create a better future for himself. He worked day and night for many years, and rented not a room, but only a bed that cost about £3 per week back then. He worked hard and he worked ceaselessly, in order to have broken ground in his career. With little skills to start with, he learnt how to make fish balls to establish his own business. Pang’s fish ball business was booming, but that caused other competitors to become jealous and he was threatened by gang members as a result! Luckily Pang had a friend from the ganglands and, with help of this friend he had the matter settled and continued on with his business. Looking back at the difficult times he’s been through, he recalled two incidents where he narrowly escaped the brush of death’s hand. He attributes his miraculous escape to the amazing grace of God. After his retirement, Pang now lives a simple and peaceful life: passing his days between walks, exercises and volunteering in the church.
