It’s officially Spring (literally, the clock has just struck midnight), and though we haven’t had many posts lately, that doesn’t mean we haven’t been hard at work planning fantastic events!
A brief recap; the Cultural Rhythms Food Festival this year was a smashing hit as usual. The HHKSers proudly served up delicious dishes straight from Chinatown’s Jade Garden Restaurant (if you haven’t been there, go try it out! It’s the best Canto cuisine I’ve found in Boston) while sporting our newly-acquired HHKS hoodies for the first time! We’ve also enjoyed an evening of friendly competition and conversation during our collaboration Mahjong Night with the Taiwanese Cultural Society (TCS) (wahoo Asian games and snacks!).
On the topic of mahjong, allow me to include a tangential photo of the COOLEST MAHJONG TABLES EVER (found in Beijing, which isn’t quite Hong Kong, but I bet they have them in HK too!). You push a button, the middle of the table opens up, you push in all the tiles, and while they’re mixed, a new set of tiles appears in perfect rows right at your elbows! Magic.
Anyway, that’s what we’ve been up to lately. Stay tuned for more fun-filled, food-filled, and friend-filled events soon!
Thought I’d share this YouTube video I came across; it shows how an architect in Hong Kong basically altered his apartment such that he can change one space into 24 different rooms. Check it out!
Hope everyone’s enjoying the long weekend!
HHKS decided to celebrate President’s Day by having our first dimsum run of the semester! (Erm, yes, President’s Day..)
As always, dimsum was a delicious success; we were so busy stuffing our faces that we forgot to take pictures, but the vast amounts of China Pearl’s doufufa (豆腐花, literally “tofu flower”) has made me want to try making my own (complete with sugary gingery syrup)! Perhaps at the next HHKS event? We shall see…
(And of course, if there are any particular foods you’d like to see us attempt, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!)
We’re going to start updating the blog with posts about our events and any recent news we may stumble upon (literally? perhaps), as well as other random thoughts and discussion in the coming months.
For now, I’m going to start with a link to an article about possibly the best thing about Hong Kong: FOOD!
(Might I add that we actually made our own deliciously heart-attack inducing Hong Kong-Style French Toast during an event last semester? Mmm..)
And also, be sure to let us know if there’s anything you would like to see on our blog by sending an email to email@example.com!
Best wishes for 2011 from the HHKS Board!
