We are putting together a great show for Gung Haggis Fat Choy with
wonderful artists and lots of surprises, as always. Afterall…
it will be the 10th annual dinner.
Lots of great ideas are happening… as well as solutions to the logistics.
Expect haggis dim sum appetizers to greet guests after they arrive at 5:30pm, prior to the show start at 6:30pm.
Not just the usual haggis won ton, there will be haggis spring rolls, plus some surprises.
Afterall, “dim sum” can be literally translated as “pieces of the heart” (in an emotional way!)
Again… expect to see highlights from the CBC television performance special – Gung Haggis Fat Choy!
Confirmed performers include Brave Waves, Heather Pawsey, Leore Cashe, Lensey Namioka, and more surprises!
CBC Radio's Priya Ramu, host of “On the Coast” – will co-host the event with me.
These past few weeks I have been very busy researching and trying to find
and identify pictures of my ancestor Rev. Chan Yu Tan for a CBC Generations
documentary that will be aired on CBC Television in February. So
that's my excuse for not writing on the blog this weekend.
