Kung Hei Fat Choi !
Hope you all had a very happy and enriched Chinese New Year holiday. And probably can’t wait to celebrate Valentine’s Day with your beloved ones this Sunday. This year Feb 14 happens to be the 7th day of Lunar New Year, everyone’s birthday date.
So may I wish all a romantically Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Birthday !
29th Regular Meeting Highlights
Last night we had a typical CNY food indulgence time during the club meeting at PP Fred’s Riquexo ( Rickshaw) restaurant with 16 of us including families of PP Fred, PP Guy, PP Stella and PP Synthia. PP Fred and Sonia showered us with delicious authentic Macanese dishes -suckling pig, tacho, egg-white dessert, just to name a few which went down extremely well with the bottles of wine PP Ip so kindly arranged for us as well as Ricardo’s complimentary ones.
I have never heard the momentary silence when the dishes were served in our previous club meetings. Now we know why PP Keith has frequented his new ‘ canteen on the Macau side.
– We also had a surprise birthday celebration for PP Keith whose birthday is Feb 13. Happy Birthday PP Keith !
– Happy box donation: $2,200 , thank you for your generosity.
