I still fondly remember it was back in late-2020 at my very first street-side popup when I first heard the story of the “Ice Cream Grandpa”. 4 years later, I’m thrilled to finally bring this remarkably inspiring story to life. For nearly 70 years, no matter rain or shine, Mr. Wong traveled long distances with his 300lb icecream cart and stationed outside a local school, bringing smiles and building an unbreakable bond with generations of students and teachers till the age of 101.
Mr. Wong departed in 2017 at age 102, leaving behind a legacy of devotion and an undying spirit of perseverance that touched the hearts of many who grew up in Shek Kip Mei. But what’s more poignant perhaps are the numerous memories that many recounted —heartwarming acts of kindness that went both ways.
【 陪伴成長的雪糕伯伯】「每逢放學時分，#石峽尾 瑪莉洛神父教會學校的師生甫踏出校門，定能看到「雪糕伯伯」黃廣親切而熟悉的身影。自1957年創校前，黃伯不論風雨，堅持推着三百磅重的雪糕車在校外擺賣至高齡101歲，微笑著見證歷代學生和鄰近街坊的青蔥歲月。2017年，102歲的黃伯離去，其敬業樂業、知足常樂和自食其力的香港精神卻留下了深刻的印記。」
