Lorna invited me to the “Friends of Tai Chi Chinese New Year Celebration Dinner” again this year. She is a loyal supporter of her Tai Chi master.
The master Tai Chi in action.
This year’s celebration was held in Shiang Garden in Richmond.
The first course was Peking Duck served in pancake. The duck meat was thinly slice and we help ourselves in making a wrap with the pancake, green onion and hoisin sauce. I have to apologize for the poor photo quality as my camera just broke down as the food arrived at the table. I have to take the photos with my crummy cell phone.
Next came the Fish Maw Soup which we enjoyed with some vinegar.
Lobster with egg noodles. Lorna recommended to eat the noodles with some green onion ginger sauce and what a fabulous idea.
Again, sorry for the blurry Scallop and Prawn with Snow Pea dish.
The leftover meat from the carcass of the duck was used to stir fry with vegetables to be used as filling for the Iceberg Lettuce Wrap. Another hands on dish at the table.
By the time the steamed chicken arrived at our table, we had used up all the green onion ginger sauce and we had to request for another serving.
A vegetarian dish of “Bak Choy” with Fresh Bean Curd Sticks.
A steamed whole fish. What we enjoyed most was the “Chan Chuen Fun” also known as “Chencun Rice Sheets” at the bottom of this dish which soaked up all the flavour of the sauce.
The filler of the dinner is Fried Sticky Rice. By now, most of us were full and there was a lot of leftover of the stick rice for packing home by some of the participants at the table.
The dessert which came at the end of the dinner was Red Bean Dessert Soup which I did not manage to take a photo as my cell phone ran out of battery.
The lucky draw was a fruitful one as almost everyone got a prize to take home.
Lorna, thank you again for your invite. I found myself appreciate the Tai Chi performances more after taking a few Tai Chi introductory moves in the Fitness class at the Experience Works program.
