The Rapheal room was taken over with various stalls and activites such as tea making, Chinese chess and calligraphy. We watched the Taiwan Toa-Thiu-Thia puppet show (Tale of the Marriage of Two Mice). There was an activity cart in the room displaying the museum's Chinese antiquity collection. K* got to make a mask of a temple guardian. K* also fed a angpau packet to the Lion during the Lion Dance (R* is still scared of the Lion).
Jenny managed to get free tickets for the cultural performances in the lecture hall so we were treated to demonstrations of Shaolin Temple Kung Fun, a Chinese Yaogu Dance Troupe and performances by the Beijing Ballet. The Baijing Ballet was the highlight for me.
So it's a great place to celebrate Chinese New Year and it's been getting more popular every year. We finished off the day appropriately enough at a Chinese restaurant. On Sunday, Jenny and her mom cooked up a traditional storm for some family and friends.
Gung Hey Fatt Choy!
