CHOCOLATE IS A STAR!
Chocolate, who transmitted his memoirs (Chocolate's Brown Study in the Bag, Proverse Prize Finalist, 2009) through brain-waves to Rupert Chan, who acted as scribe, has helped his family win another prize! They joined the SPCA pets walkathon in Disneyland HK and Mrs Chan won a Nikon camera with this photo taken that day. "Chocolate is really a winner!" Rupert Chan writes. See photo below.
