Happy Moments - Prof Hu with his body-guards!

Sweet Memories of Professor Hu with two of his body guards!


Always with a friendly smile ...

I only got to know Hui Yong the recent past 2 years. We have became regular lunch buddies and a group of us will go out. He always have a ready smile and personality that put everyone at ease around him.

He always have something positive to say and will always encourage people to be their best ... during our IT Walk-fit program, he always encourages me to do more, walk more and run more. He will not push you but instead encourages you to increase the intensity slowly ... build up the momentum slowly to achieve your final goal. He will never say no to a walk-about to lunch

He is very proud of our heritage and is also our residence Chinese translator ... anyone who wants complex translation into Chinese or the other way round ... Hui Yong is the go to guy and he will always help no matter how busy he is. Haaahaaa ... I guess that is why I always call him China-man.

My heartfelt condolences goes to his wife and 2 children.

I will surely miss him and will always remember him with fond memories. Be at peace my China-man friend


The good die young as the song goes but Hui Yong will always be alive in our memories

When I heard the news that we have lost a friend and a brilliant mind,
I simply could not believe it. I literally went into shock. He was
just too young to be gone so suddenly. I first met him when we were
in US working on Everest Project.

He was a very quiet humble guy but once you get to know him, you will find him a very helpful guy. And his brain! it was so brilliant. He
was so strong technically that he was able to resolve most technical
problems with ease. Those he can't solve, he was able to suggest good alternatives.

He is a great loss to Avago and to the world. He will be forever miss
by all of us. The good die young as the song goes, but we will all
keep him alive in our memories. I wish all the best and a bright
future for his wife and 2 kids.

Still feeling so sad and shocked - from Geok Eng (Penang)

in remembrance of a great guy ....

Although i've not worked very closely with Hui Yong over the years, my few encounters have been very pleasant memories.  He's very helpful, as many have attested to, & prompt in his responses, clearly having a strong sense of urgency.  Through the years, we in IT / Biz Support / IT & the user community have come to acknowledge him as the Guru in the Mfg/Planning arena.  He will be dearly missed by us all.  May God bless his soul ! 

with fond memories,

Eulogy for our Beloved Friend & Colleague - Hui Yong

I am sure his family would really appreciate it especially Hui Yong's kids when they read how well regarded and honored he is by his friends and colleagues, a side of Hui Yong which they may not have seen.

A Friend to be Remembered

There are too many things one can write about Huiyong. He is such a person who was a subject matter expert for many areas like WorkStream, Oracle, Excel etc... Whenever there is an issue arises, he will automatically be one of the first person to seek for help.

Huiyong introduces me to the world of Excel VBA. I am so fascinated with his knowledge in this area, whereby with just a few simple sentences he wrote all manual executions can be replace by the macro. Amazing!

Thank you for having the thoughtfulness & dedication at work for not waking me up earlier than 6AM to check on the forecast interfaces although you had already completed your rounds of checks earlier than that.

Huiyong will always be remembered by me for being such a wonderful Colleague & Friend. We shall miss your laughter and jokes around us. Joanne.

Hui Yong - humble & always being helpful

I don't recall meeting Hui Yong in person during the setup years. However I have dealt with him via email and chatting quite a few times. From his replies I know he is a very humble person, he replies all my mails. Most of my mails are issue based on Oracle and he always helps out...... that made me going back to him for more help...I will truly miss a very special person like him. I pray for him to rest in peace and pray that god leads a bright path for his loving widow and children to move on life.

With Deepest Sympathy,
Vigneshweri (a very satisfied Oracle end user fo Hui Yong's great support

Shocking news to have lost a friend - Hui Yong

I left Agilent for 10 years, and I knew Hui Yong since Mijani brought him to Penang (that was still HP days), and like Mijani said, he wasn't able to communicate well in English. But that was not a problem for most of us, as we can still communicate in Mandarin. He is definitely a brilliant guy.

If my memory serves me well, we were working together not just on WorkStream, but also the WPSII proliferation to SCO. That was still under Chin Hong & Boon Sin time, and we were working from the 5th floor Depot Road side.

When William and I were in US with HuiYong, we always like to tease him even when shopping at Cosco, Safeway, etc… by taking up a product and show him “又是中国来的” (“see, China product again”). Hui Yong will always defend for his home land. He told me that China has developed so where and still developing. He said “两日一小变,三日一大变” (“Minor changes/development every 2 days, and major changes/development every 3 days”) in China. He knows we were just pulling his legs, and we had jokes and fun together.

HuiYong and I attended the Oracle OSFM CAB in Redwood City together, he came out with his brilliant ideas, but credit was left to me as I helped to translate and explain to the group. Hui Yong was perfectly fine with that… and that is Prof Hu.

The last time I met him was when I was in the Avago Yishun site (I was in HP then) to help out a project. Mijani & HuiYong invited me for lunch in a restaurant nearby, and I never expected that it became the last time I saw him.

Li Qin, this is the hardest moment for you and your children.
We are sad and I’m sure it will be much-much-much more for your family.
Life has to go on for you and the 2 children, and to be strong in facing the situation.
Our Prof Hu has left behind another 2 little brilliants for the future.

HuiYong will always be missed, and may his soul rest in peace.

Shocking sad feeling from Wee (Penang)

My great neighbor in office and my lunch mate!

He left behind his wife who is a homemaker, his 12-yr-old daughter and his America-born 9-yr-old son.

A few of us had gone down to keep the wife and kids company for a few hours today and will continue to do so.

It is indeed very sad and I keep going back to the yahoo chats and phone text that I had with him.

His Legacy

Indeed very sad and shocking. Some of you may have known Hui Yong longer than I do. My association with him goes back 7 years to Agilent days. I very quickly learnt what a brilliant mind and great person he was. Since then I had great respect for him. One of the best and brightest I have worked with. The legacy he leaves behind is the CM Enhancement solution. May his soul rest in peace.

Professor Hu

Prof Hu! Each time I addressed him with Prof, he would kick a fuss. But I just cannot help it, because as Shreyas has put it, he simply has the brightest and brilliant mind! Whenever any of us come to him for consultations or questions, he sure have the answer for us!

I know Hui Yong since HP days. I was the one who interviewed him. His English may not be so fluent at that time as he just newly arrived from China. But yes, he came to me as a very brilliant guy from start.
He's so animated when asked about technical questions and when I asked him to explain in Chinese. (haha tho' my own Chinese was miserably less than half-past-six!)

It's natural for us human beings to ask 'Why'? Well, seeking to understand is part of our so-called 'survival instinct'. It happened for a reason for sure but I have come to terms for anything beyond life, it's beyond my comprehension... so I'll leave it to Our Creator! Instead, let us continue to pray and offer help where we can for his home-maker wife, for many extra dosage of love and comforts, hope and strength to continue with life and in bringing up the two school aged children.

Rest In Peace, My Beloved Friend!
