An Enjoyable Festival
Hot Pot Party at Dragon Boat Festival
On the 15th, June 2013, the day when the Tasmania Chinese School held the Chinese Cultural Day, the school organized a hot pot party at Huayuan restaurant for celebrating the Dragon Boat Festival. Fifty friends attended this party and the owner of the restaurant, Lucy had generously prepared red bean rice dumplings and refreshing potato salad for everyone to enjoy without any charge. The atmosphere was very heart warming when friends gathered together and around the steaming pots. Many new friends joined the party that night. Big sister Xiangyang, Dr Victor Wang and Feirong’s mother has lovely characteristics and has been a main player in the Taichi and Dance group. Other new friends included Anbo and Tiantian, the husband and daughter of Song Kun, who was a former teacher of our school and returned to Hobart recently after two years. With these new friends and old friends all together, we regretted to bid farewell our lovely friends and parents of the kids at our school, the whole family of Jingyi to return to Taiwan. Everyone treasured the moment of the party that we could know each other and gather together.
Even with several round of delicious dishes and continuously conversions and jokes, it seemed not enough for such great atmosphere. Therefore, Jason and Si Lei were invited to perform and sing songs with the applauses from everyone. Si Lei was rated as a professional singer and Jason has the name of “Liu Dehua” and he really looks like the famous star. With the applauses and smiles, other friends were also invited to the front. Jihong sang the song
Many friends showed their talents at the party, while some friends were regret to say that they would also like to perform if they had prepared. An idea to hold a karaoke party was raised for next time. Dear friends: let us start to prepare for our reunion now!
