It's been a busy busy weekend
I was in Victoria for a board meeting for The Land Conservancy of BC. So we decided to have a mini-Gung Haggis Fat Choy dinner that was intimate with 12 dinners…. Just like the 16 friends I entertained in a private townhome back in 1998 at the first Gung Haggis Dinner.
We went to Nanaimo for the inaugural Gung Haggis Fat Choy Pow Wow Dinner, to be co-hosted with Shelagh Rogers. We served over 30 people for another smallish intimate dinner, mixing together First Nations, Scottish and Chinese culture and cuisine. It was a private event, as it was also Shelagh's birthday.
Tonight, I am at the Vancouver Public Library. It is Gung Haggis World Poetry Night to be co-hosted with Ariadne Sawyer and Alexandro Mojica-Olea.
