Last Wednesday we were invited to dinner at President and Sister Fung’s home. They live near the temple, about an hour away in Sydney early evening traffic. President Fung met us outside their beautiful modern style home. As we removed our shoes, they had slippers for each one of us. I wanted to take something, so decided on a small potted and blooming tulip plant. They did not recognize tulips, but President Fung was excited to show me his pots of orchids on the back patio.

We were happy to meet their 2 sons and daughter in law that live with them. Brother and Sister Kwok and Elders Yim and Lee were also invited. We all sat down to an amazing feast!

We started with soup, then all different main dishes. I especially liked the salmon in a rich, creamy sauce, and the cashew chicken. The pork meatballs and Peking duck were so delicious. It was a fabulous meal! Dessert was a sweet soup with a kind of whole grain rice that was also lovely.

Sister Fung has such a fun personality. I really wish I could speak Cantonese and get to know her better. Their children speak excellent English, so we were able to learn about their university studies and work.

We learned that President Fung is a magician! The Chinese Branch put on a big Chinese New Year celebration for the whole Stake and he did a magic show! It was fun to see the pictures of the Branch members dressed in beautiful satin native clothing.

    All I can say is, “Yum!” Your pictures of the Chinese food are making my mouth water. I foresee a trip to the Mandarin in our near future.
    Love,
