Mid-Autumn Festival Party

September 19th is Chinese mid-autumn festival. The meaning of mid-autumn festival is about sharing, thanksgiving and praying. People who are interested in traditional Chinese culture and practice are very welcomed to join this party, where you will taste the traditional food, make your own lanterns and learn couple of the famous poems. Be prepared for the games too, because you may win the prizes!

We will prepare enough moon-cakes and tea, and potlucks are welcomed :)

    我非常感谢你们组织今年的中秋節 !The organizers clearly put all their hearts in this meeting and it resulted in a fantastic evening with culture quizzes (prizes included!), poems, DIY lanterns, 月饼 (我没忘了!) and a long etc. plus meeting really nice and interesting people with 中国也汉语 in common.
    Thank you very much!! I had a great time.

    I really enjoyed this meet-up. I learned some new words, met some nice people and learned some Chinese history. Thanks to Jessica and everyone for their efforts to organize this meet-up. I especially liked the lanterns we made.

      Thank you Dan! The lanterns can last very long. when it dries a little bit, it smells good too :) glad you liked it!

    This meetup was very good. We learned words, phrases and sentences by playing games and learning a little of Chinese Culture. We even read poetry by the famous Tang Dynasty Master Li Po.

    My +1 has dropped due to an unexpected job meeting this evening >_<
    So despite RSVPs are closed, if you consider it so, someone from the waiting list can take his place.

    Sorry very much for this last change minute.
    I will be going for sure!! Thank you very much and sorry very much again for this last time modification, it was not expected at all.

      Hi Caterina! Thanks for your notice :) don't worry, and please feel free to bring your guest next time! the more the merrier. It only because of the size of the room, that we have to set up a limit of spots for this event. I'll see you tonight at 6:30 :)

    September 18, 2013

    • CI H.

      Hi Yilin, you and your guest are welcomed!

      September 19, 2013

  • Jack F.

    Thanks Jessica, what kind of potluck would be appropriate for this?

    September 18, 2013

    • CI H.

      thanks Mr. Feka, I think maybe snacks? we will have some fruit, moon-cakes and tea for you all.

      September 19, 2013

  • Jack F.

    Hi Jessica, I noticed that I was confirmed on the attendance but not the guest I planned to bring. Just now I changed my RSVP to include the guest and find that your system dropped me to the waiting list. I hope that this doesn't mean that I can't attend.

    September 18, 2013

    • CI H.

      Hello Jack, we appreciate your great interest in joining our Mid-Autumn event! I think sometimes the system is just getting confused by the changes of the number of guest, but as the system says you've got a vacant spot, you and your guest are both welcomed :) see you tomorrow!

    Can I just ask, if we are still on the waiting list, does that mean there's really no spot for us right? :-)

    September 17, 2013

    • Michael C

      September 17, 2013
