Sheung loves his native Hong Kong, but to immigrate to the United States gave him new opportunities and kept him far away from mainland China. His dislike of Communism is evident in conversations with Sheung.
It’s not unusual for natives of Hong Kong to emigrate to North America and Europe, he said.
“I came to Oklahoma right after I finished my courses from Hong Kong Polytechnic." He learned Chinese cooking along the way.
