QI show in UK – cites Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner in Vancouver

Gung Haggis Fat Choy is QI in the UK

QI (Quite Interesting) is a British comedy panel game television quiz show.  It is hosted by Stephen Fry, and features permanent panellist Alan Davies with many other rotating guest panelists

My library co-worker friend Chris Jang just sent me this link that mentions “Gung Haggis Fat Choy in Vancouver”. 

Not sure, when these episodes were taped.  But this time last year, I was still recovering from my Nov 28-Dec 5 trip to Scotland.   I was there to attend the St. Andrew's Day closing night reception for Scotland Homecoming 2009, held at the Scottish Parliament Building.  A picture of me wearing kilt and Chinese Lion mask was featured for the exhibit “This is Who We Are: Scots in Canada” – organized by my friend Harry McGrath.   That evening I met the First Minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond.  See my article:  Toddish McWong arrives in Scotland for inaugural visit and reception at Scottish Parliament for “This is Who We Are”

I have not yet been interviewed by BBC Radio or television, but I have been a guest on BBC Radio Scotland for different things.  For January 25th Robbie Burns Day 2010, I was woken up by BBC Radio Scotland, as they wanted to know how Robbie Burns Day was celebrated abroad.  My description of Gung Haggis Fat Choy Robbie Burns Chinese New Year Dinner, followed a phone interview from a UK research base in Antarctica.

Anyways…. watch these video clips below, and have a dram of scotch whenever anybody mentions “Gung Haggis Fat Choy” or “Vancouver”…. or if you want to get drunk… “Haggis”
