    The Buddhist temple is a great place to visit as was the Dim sum in the temple restaurant.

    Many people think that when they sign up for a dining event, it is the same as signing up to go to a restaurant and order off the menu, so no problem if you don't honour the reservation. Actually, it is quite different in that we are contracting with the restaurant for a number of pre-set meals. When the restaurant charges us for our no shows, we volunteer hosts then end up having to pay out of our own pockets. To be angry at the hosts for wanting to recoup that money I think must come from a misunderstanding about this. Derek, Jay, Lily and I coughed up the money for Ella, Ron, k and Katrina. Please contact me Ella, Ron, K and Katrina to arrange payment. Thanks.

      Ella, Ron (and your guest), K and Katrina - I personally paid $30 extra to cover two of you for not attending.

      Hi Ella. I haven't blocked you or made any changes. I assumed it was just a misunderstanding on your part. The restaurant does not have my contact info. Just email me by clicking on my name and send email and we can work something out. No worries.

    The food was delicious and we had dishes that I have never had before at any of the other Chinese Vegetarian restaurants. We owe a great tahnks to Nancy & Lily for organizing the lovely event. The volunteers who served the tables and prepared the foods also deserve many thanks. Only disappointment for me was the fact that there were no-shows - again - that left the organizers reaching into their own pockets to make up the cost of the meet-up.

    The food was great, the table mates fun, and the locale amazing! We walked around afterwards, viewed the giant gold Buddah, and bought stuff at the gift shop!
