Due to popular request, our next Meetup for Professionals' Social will be the tradition Chinese form of "gemütlichkeit"--- Dim Sum! Where good food meets good company. And also the possibility of good entertainment for the adventurous few who dare try the infamous chicken feet...

    Hello Professionals' Social,

    Thank you to everybody who came to dim sum yesterday. I had a great time meeting everybody, poking fun at "Costco" and "Biceps," and re-igniting the Dollarama vs. Costco controversy (it was Pam, I swear, hahaha). Gemütlichkeit is definitely a fitting word for this past event. A special thank you to Laura and Pooja who arrived early to keep me company while we wait; Alex Ho, Sam, Anne, and Pooja for helping explain the different foods; and also, thank you to those who were willing to take on the try-anything-and-everything challenge. The walk to the bakery afterwards was an awesome way to enjoy the beautiful weather and company. All-in-all, it is the diversity and positive attitudes that makes Meetups like these enjoyable and worthwhile. Couldn't have done it without you all.

    Stay tuned for the next Meetup...

      The park near by the government is a perfect place for frisbee.

    Great lunch. Awesome to see everyone. Just wanna point out that the person who ordered the durian, didn't actually eat it. Pooja thanks for eating my share of the chicken feet.

    Awesome job Jenny! I was actually planning on getting there early as I have a volunteer engagement from 8am to 10am in the west end anyways so I'll join you :) Also, anyone sitting at my table is obligated by my sheer force of will to try chicken feet with me!

    • Jenny

      Oh, nice! Good timing then. Hahaha.....is it safe to assume that the "Fear Factor" comment is directed to a certain doctor and Costco-advocate??

      May 30

    • Pooja

      Please - it's directed at EVERYONE. Trust you me, my goal for this lunch will be to ensure we all bond over the clawed transportation devices of farmed poultry!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone again. Also meet the new members. Perhaps Jenny will burst out her southern accent.

      In a Chinese restaurant? Would it not be more fitting if I used a Chinese accent??? Hahaha...

    My apologies, but something has come up and I'm no longer able to attend Dim Sum...and I truly enjoy Dim Sum!! :(

    • Jenny

      Hi Erin, thanks for letting us know in advance, this gives people (who are on the waiting list) a chance to join. We'll most likely get more chances to go for dim sum again, but I hope to meet you before that time.

    I came from Guangzhou and I love dim sum.

    May 24

    • Jenny

      Hello Sophia, welcome to Edmonton. I'm certain that the dim sum we have here would be incomparable to that of Guangzhou, but I'll let you be the judge of that. ;)

      May 25

  • Trevor

    Dim Sum......well you don't have to ask me twice or even once:). I'll be there for sure!

  • Darryl

    I have never experienced Dim Sum..I am looking forward to see what it's all about!

    1 · May 8

    • Jenny

      Hi Darryl,

      Glad you can join us this time. Basically, Dim Sum is a breakfast/brunch social in which tea and appetizer-like dishes are served via ladies pushing carts by the tables (so you can actually see what types of foods there are). Most people who have been to Dim Sum really enjoy the experience, and I hope that you will too.
