Wong,
Wong, Wong and Wong: Not a secret Hong Kong Triad but a Vancouver food
and history Quartet (we sound very dangerous, don't you think?)


Chef
Stephen Wong has now been added to the panel discussion on Chinese
food, life and restaurants for Janice Wong's presentation of CHOW From
China to Canada: Memories of Food and Family.

Vancouver Public Library
Alice Mackay Room
Free
Janice
will make a slide show presentation about her 4 generation family
history, and her father's restaurant in Saskatchewan.  I am
Janice's 2nd cousin – once removed, so I am 5th generation.  Maybe
I will bring the Rev. Chan Legacy photo display, so we can see the 6th
and 7th generations too!

Janice
found an image of a very secretive, dangerous Bela Lugosi…(love the
cauldron and the extremely long chopsticks).  This is a
publicity poster from one of Great-Uncle Luke's films that Janice is
including in her presentation so she can read the little bit about the
preacher's son who made his way to Hollywood acting in films such as
The Good Earth, and starring in “The Mysterious Mr. Wong.”

Burns Day dinner is Todd's creation.  Todd loves Chinese Canadian

Todd invented haggis won ton!
