Chinese New Year Meal

Today is the fourth day of Chinese New Year, and as expected there was a celebratory dinner held in our church. I gather that the Chinese New Year celebrations goes on for 15 days (longer than the 12 days of Christmas). Many people brought a dish they had cooked to share. As usual, I was there with my trusty camera to capture it all.

After the meal, there was even the opportunity to have one of the brothers write chinese calligraphy for us, or an opportunity to try this ourselves.

It has to be said that it was an enjoyable afternoon/evening.
