Lorna invited me to the Praise Dance Night at Floata Seafood Restaurant in Chinatown. It was a celebration of the formation of the Canada Praise Dance Association.
The celebration started at Montgomery Park around 3:00PM. There were several hundreds of participants in this event. There were representatives from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, China and various local churches.
Although I do not know the dance exercises but I felt it’s a very good form of exercise. It is fun too to do it in a group. It was privileged to have the founder of the Praise Dance from Taiwan, Ng Mei Yun attending this event. I can’t believe she is 80 years old as she looks so youthful and bouncy in the dance moves.
After the dance, we went down to Chinatown for the dinner. Since there were still time, Lorna and I went for a short walk in Chinatown.
We returned to Floata Seafood Restaurant at 6:00PM. Floata was picked to host the dinner because it can accommodate large group. I heard that this dinner was attended by about 500 people.
The first course was BBQ Cold Meat Combination Platter. I find the flavour of the BBQ goose (or duck) to be a bit too gamey for me.
Next came the Deep Fried Shrimp Ball. It was very chewy and the shrimp was grounded too fine to be recognizable. (more…)
