The title of this piece comes from the Weiyuan Lake (未圓湖) in the Chinese University of Hong Kong and a famous Kun opera (崑劇) tune Youyuan Jinmeng (遊園驚夢). Weiyuan, literally means a not yet finished mission; Jinmeng, literally means a surprising dream. It was composed before the end of the undergraduate life of the university. The piece is written for dizi (笛子, a Chinese bamboo flute) performed by Ricky Yeung, and zheng (箏, a 21-string zither) performed by Qian Jing.
