Welcome to Yue-shun's Obsolete Home Page!!

Greetings... you have found me!

On this page, you can discover something about me, my interests, my profession and affiliations, etc. Despite the fact that I work in the financial services industry, I have a tremendous interest in the arts and humanities. I hope you will enjoy reading about it.

(Note: This page contains information and links that are outdated. I don't even live in San Francisco at this time!)

Reading Interests

I love books, and enjoy browsing in bookstores. My reading interests include topics in Business, History, Science, Religion, Nutrition, Technology, Music, Theatre, etc.

Among the periodicals I read are:

  • Show Music (a quaterly magazine devoted to the musical theatre)
  • Gramophone (a monthly magazine focused on new classical music recordings)
  • Electronic Musician
  • MacWeek (look here for the latest news and gossips surrounding the Macintosh community)
  • Red Herring
  • The Globe and Mail (a national newspaper published in Canada)
  • The Wall Street Journal

    Besides reading, I also like writing. My articles (both English and Chinese) have been published in newspapers in Hong Kong, Boston, Los Angeles, Toronto, and the web.

    One article I have written:

  • The Art of Using Irrelevant Analogies... [Published in December 1997]
    "When Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates came to UCLA for a one-hour stop just over a year ago, I asked him ..."

    Pleasure Viewing

    I enjoy watching the following teevee programmes:

  • The Muppet Show
  • Great Performances
  • Hockey Night in Canada (Yes, I'm a proud Canuckian!)

    Musical Notes

    A music maker since childhood, I started playing the piano by ear when I was 5, before taking lessons at the age of 7. Since then, I have given public performances in concerts (début at age 11) and on television (age 15). I also have a passion for conducting, and was a concert band conductor (age 16). More recently, I have been composing and arranging for fun. I hope to become a recognised song composer some day. Anyone of you out there in the music industry?

    As for the kind of music I enjoy listening to... I am particularly fond of theatre music (Broadway/West End type). I also enjoy listening to classical music, especially music from the late Romantic period (Rachmaninov, Mahler, etc.). Jazz is something I like too, particularly traditional jazz piano. Oscar Peterson and Erroll Garner are two of my favourite jazz pianists. I listen to film music as well, such as scores by Jerry Goldsmith ("Omen", "Basic Instincts") and Hans Zimmer ("Crimson Tide")

    I am interested in exploring other genres of music.

    Profession and Affiliations

    I have been a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer (IEEE) and a member of the Association for Investment Management and Research (AIMR),

    In my leisure, I have served as a volunteer business consultant for Junior Achievement (JA). JA is an international educational organisation which offers teenaged students the opportunity to acquire basic business knowledge. I was involved with JA for two years when I lived in Toronto, and again in Vancouver.
