Media Alert for Gung Haggis Fat Choy:

Global TV with Erin Cebula's Global Village

Erin Cebula interviewed me on Monday evening, just prior to the start
of the GHFC World Poetry Night at the Vancouver Public Library.  I
had first met Erin when she was co-hosting Urban Rush on Rogers, in
2004.  That interview was all about the then upcoming CBC tv
special “Gung Haggis Fat Choy.”

In 2004, we hosted 2 GHFC dinners on the Saturday and the Sunday, each
around 220 to 240 people attending.  I brought some haggis won-ton
to the show which Erin easily tried… but her co-host Russell took a
pass.

“I'm the one with the stomach of steel,” laughed Erin, when I recounted our first meeting.

This time Erin was amazed that our little dinner has grown into an
informal  festival with four related events.  She wanted to
feature me for her show “Global Village” and also asked for some
pictures of previous dinners to show the audience what it was
like.  I sent her a picture of the 2005 dinner with myself and
then Mayor Larry Campbell – both dressed in Chinese jackets with our
kilts!

Look for Global Village to be running from today and through to next week!
