We hosted Steven Purugganan, his brothers Brian and Andrew and their parents Dan and Vikki for a 2 hour birthday party partty. We invited local stackers who have been demonstration their skills across Hong Kong to the local media over the past few weeks.
It was an exciting time for everyone as they prepared to meet the most famous Sport Stacking family in the World.
There was great food, stacking demonstrations from everyone and lots of chatter about this weekend’s tournament. Steven received a pair of very flashy White Air Jordan trainers and cards for his twelve birthday.
We found out that Andrew not only stacks well but it an accomplished 5 k runner and Ultimate Frisbee player.
The boys had been at Ocean Park for the day and loved the rides and the Panda’s.
Steven loves the Dim Sum and Brian loved the Vertical Drop ride.
Dan and Vicki were here 20 years ago for their Honey Moon and of course mentioned they saw a huge change in the city but were very happy to be back again.
So it sounds like the whole family are having a wonderful time.
They’ll be at the WSSA Hong Kong Sport Stacking Tournament 2009 in New Town Plaza this weekend and so head on down and check out the speed of the boys Sport Stacking. You’ll never see anything like it.

“I am really excited to go to Hong Kong and participate at the sport stacking tournament. It’s my first time in Hong Kong so it would be nice to meet new people and learn the culture. I hear the food is great and I can’t wait to get some dim sum. Lastly, I always enjoy just stacking with anyone, especially with fellow stackers halfway across the world.”Steven Purugganan
“I always crave Chinese food here in the U.S. but my parents said, wait ’til you get to Hong Kong. Hmmm…yummy!”Brian Purugganan
