Cheng Tim Tim

Jeff Chow Jung Sing
(Year 4, BA English Language and Literature)
Jeff reads and writes and also likes photography but when it comes to writing short biographies, he would rather recite Joyce’s Ulysses back to front.

Jimmy Chan Pak Him
(Graduate, BA in English Language and Literature and BEd in English Language Teaching)
Jimmy likes drinking craft beer but he understands being hip is expensive, so much of the time he settles for ordinary brews. His favourite imbibing instrument is the nonik glass which has a podgy neck. He believes that beer tastes best after a hard day’s work, so he is currently employed. He is a nice person and he welcomes all forms of donation.

Kwun Kiem Foeng
(Student, MA Literary and Comparative Studies)
Kwun loathes the question ‘If this day were your last, how would you live it?’ He thinks it would be like just any other day: Coffee in the morning, a book when commuting, meditating in the city’s streets, and goodnight to loved ones in the evening.

Marcus Leung Ming Ki
(Graduate, BA English Language and Literature)
Marcus is a dreamer constantly on the run with his camera, snapping subjects however random they may seem. Still finding his way around the finer aspects of the human language, Marcus thinks his photographs will speak for him for now.

Mignon Chiu
(Year 4, BA in English Language and Literature and BEd in English Language Teaching)
Thanks to her mum, who bestows some feminine and pleasing qualities upon her, Mignon is an Asian girl with a French name. Yet she is neither a Francophile nor a romantic. She is convinced that she was an empress who ruled an empire of cats in her previous life.

Nicola Chan Oi Ching
(Graduate, BA in English Language and Literature)
Fated to (be) define(d) (by) life, Nicola is thankful that she is a variable full of surprises.

Suzanne Lai
(Graduate, BA in English Language and Literature)
An ardent bibliophile and cinephile, Suzanne sees the world in vivid colours. With a concentration in Comparative Literature, she straddles both Chinese and English narratives with untethered imagination. Hoarding a vast collection of novels and vinyl records, Suzanne lives dangerously under a wavering tower of words and rhythm.
