October 2009 - East West Festive Cultures Event PDF Print E-mail

 

On Saturday 31st October 2009, we organised an East-West Festive Cultures Event.

 

Programme:

  • 11:30 -12:00     The Health Benefits of Vegetarian Diet (Dr Frank Lie)
  • 12:00 -13:00     Healthy Vegetarian Lunch (Mr Ben Cheng)
  • 13:00 -13:30     Chinese Festive Cultures - The Origin of the Chinese Ghost Month
    (Dr Frank Lie)
  • 13:30 -15:30     Playback Theatre Workshop - East-West Festive Cultures
    (True Heart Theatre)

All participants enjoyed the event very much.  Dr Lie was giving very interesting and inspiring talks on the origin of the Chinese Ghost Month and The Health Benefits of Vegetarian Diet.  We were all impressed by Dr. Lie's professionalism and sense of humour.  During the lunch, delicious and healthy pumpkin buns and vegetarian food were served.  Special thanks to Mr Ben Cheng, our No.1 Chef!

 

When True Heart Theatre started the workshop, participants had a chance to share their own festival experiences with others.  This was a session full of laughs and memories.

 

During the whole event, we displayed our work of 'East-West Festive Cultures Project' on two laptops. Participants can know more about what we have done and what we are going to do.  We also had riddles (both English and Chinese) on the lanterns, and this is a traditional way to celebrate the Chinese Lantern Festival.
