Kaleung Hui, left, and his brother Ka Lok Hui stand in front of the Stampede Rotary Dream Home yesterday. The Hui brothers will move into the home in September, and Kaleung plans on moving his entire immediate family into the fully furnished mansion.

 




When Kaleung Hui arrived in Calgary from Hong Kong 10 years ago he could never have dreamed what difference a decade would make.





Hui is the winner of this year’s $600,000 Stampede Lottery’s Rotary Dream Home, a luxurious, three-bedroom, fully-furnished abode designed by Homes by Avi.





The 34-year-old auto-mechanic plans on moving his entire family, as well as his soon-to-be wife, into the house, which will be moved to the northwest community of Panorama View.





“I don’t know how I feel, it’s honestly a dream — now I have to buy my girlfriend a ring,” Hui said yesterday. “When they called me, I was in shock, I just couldn’t speak.”





Hui says he’s never won anything before and had been saving up — hoping one day he’d be able to buy a home in Calgary.





The Calgary Stampede Lottery doled out more than $1.3 million in prizes.
