well as being the time of year when kilted men address a haggis, it is
also getting close to the time of year when many people say, “Gung Hei
Fat Choy,” addressing the Chinese New Year.

Todd Wong does both. He's a Chinese Canadian whose family has been
in B.C. since the 19th century. Some years ago he was asked to help out
with a Robbie Burns day celebration, and this is what it led to — a
fine example of cross-cultural Canadianism, with the annual celebration
of Chinese New Year's AND Robbie Burns day, called Gung Haggis Fat Choy.

In the first year in his new guise, Toddish McWong, Todd played
Scottish songs, read Asian Canadian poetry as well as poems by Robbie
Burns. This year, (the celebration is being held on Sunday) bagpiper Joe McDonald and Toddish McWong are performing a (short) rap version of Burns immortal poem, Address To A Haggis. This, I am told, will also be presented on the 6pm news on CBC's Newsworld tonight. So, if ye wish her gratfu' prayer, Gie her a haggis! And raise your hands in the air, wave 'em like you just don't care!
