CELEBRATION OF THE FEAST OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST

The Feast of St. John the Baptist is always celebrated with an abundance of fruit. On the actual Feast Day, being June 24, our Macanese belief is that no matter how much fruit one eats, one will not get an upset stomach. One may exercise right away, or even drink water immediately after eating longans (dragon eyes)! Or perhaps like the good old days in Hong Kong, when we would go on launch picnics, and after a somewhat smaller-than-usual dinner, we would swim, eat fruit on board, swim again, eat fruit on board, and so on; we would even dive off the side of the launch!

In keeping with our Macanese culture and tradition, we will be celebrating Dia de San Joao and there will definitely be an abundance of fruit. However, since June 24 is a weekday when it would be difficult for people to attend, your Cultural and Social Committee(s) have selected the closest possible day, being Saturday, June 27. St. John the Baptist would certainly not mind looking after you on June 27!

This gathering is also to welcome our Executive Committee for 2015-2016.

The dinner will be a pot-luck. All attendees will pay the normal user fee and are hereby requested to bring a dish of food (to go with steamed white rice). It is certainly in order to team up with your fellow members so that you can make a larger dish. Depending on what you intend to make, sometimes it is easier to make a larger dish and share the cost between a few people - your option.

Your organizers recognize that bringing a dish of food may be problematic for some members and/or their guests, and in this regard, please contact either Angela Renfro or Fernanda Ho to make alternate prior arrangements. Otherwise, we will look forward to welcoming you and your dish of food. The Casa will provide steamed white rice, fruits and beverage.

Here are the details:

DATE: Saturday, June 27, 2015
TIME: dinner will be served around 5:30 p.m.
PLACE: Sede: 130-3757 Jacombs Road, Richmond B.C.
COST: User Fee ($3.00 for ALL attendees) AND

CONTACT: Angela Renfro, Head of Cultural Committee (604-313-1081)
or Fernanda Ho, Head of Social Committee (604-356-8616)

FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED BASIS - THERE IS AN EIGHTY (80) PERSON LIMIT IN THE SEDE, SO DON'T DELAY! CALL TODAY! ALL ATTENDEES MUST CONTACT EITHER ANGELA OR FERNANDA PRIOR TO THE EVENT TO CONFIRM THEIR ATTENDANCE. THERE WILL BE AN ATTENDANCE LIST AT THE DOOR. ADMISSION TO THE EVENT CANNOT BE GUARANTEED WITHOUT PRIOR CONTACT.

Caring and Sharing Potluck Day!

Let's celebrate Valentine's Day in unison with the upcoming new Lunar Year of the Ram

DATE: Saturday February 7th 2015
TIME: 6:00 p.m. till 11:00 p.m.
PLACE: Sede- Unit #130 - 3757 Jacombs Richmond B.C.
COST: $3:00 Use Fee per member and please bring a dish of food
Free for related children of members 12 years and younger
$5.00 User Fee per non- member (must be a guest of a member) and please bring a dish of food.

Valentine's Day gives us the opportunity to let others know how much we care for them and with the new Lunar Year of the Ram coming up, let's celebrate the two special occasions with an evening of fun with our fellow members and friends. Those actual dates may be busy ones for many, therefore we will be having our event earlier to enable more of our members to attend.

The last time we had a potluck, we had rave reviews of that event. The members saw how many fantastic "chefs" we have in our Casa, members who could cook different kinds of food. The dishes prepared excelled many of the other dishes they had ever tasted before and they have requested that our Socials should have more of these events. So, responding to their request, we will celebrate Valentines' Day in unison with the upcoming Lunar Year of the Ram with another Sharing and Caring Potluck Day.

This will be your chance to show off your culinary skills. Whip up a generous portion of fried rice, fried noodles, curry, Macanese food or any other particular dish that you are great at making. You might want some of the other members to taste, appreciate and compliment you on your cooking, so please make enough to share with others. If you have to work that day or just won't have the time to cook something, we understand. Simply pop into a restaurant and order something that you would like to bring to the potluck. We will all enjoy that too!

Surprise our members with what you bring. That's the fun of having a potluck!!!!!! You may be surprised to find a whole roast pig there for your dining pleasure. Rice, salads, butter and buns will be provided. For the ones who have a sweet tooth, oh yes, there will be desserts galore. Regular tea, Chinese tea, coffee and pop too.

After dinner, no need to rush off, stay behind and socialize and chat with your fellow members. Do some line dancing or ballroom dancing or join the karaoke singers for an evening of fun.

Due to the limited space, we will need to know who would like to join in this Caring and Sharing Potluck Day. Our Social Co-ordinator, Lyce Rozario is on the "wait" list for major surgery, so please contact our 1st VP Cathy Xavier Fung to confirm with her your attendance and any guests you would like to invite. It would be great if you would kindly let her know what dish of food you intend to bring that day. You may pay your User Fee when you come to the Sede that evening.

Contact Cathy Xavier Fung by phone: 604-277-9448 or by email: cmf@telus.net.

In June we had a great “Fun and Fellowship Evening”. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed themselves. Many eagerly asked about the next event, so here we go again with yet more fun time for our members with just a slight difference.

This time, you show us your culinary skills!!! I am sure that there are lots of great chefs amongst our Casa members, so please let them enjoy and have a taste of your specialty.

Make your favourite dish of food and let your fellow members know what a fantastic cook you are by letting them have a taste of it. Please be generous with your portion, so that more can enjoy what you have cooked for us. If you are joining with another family member or friend to prepare the same dish, please bring a larger portion of that food.

There will be rice, buns, butter, salads and desserts provided, so please just bring a main dish and put your name under the Pyrex or corning ware. They all look similar and we would like to be sure that they won’t get mixed up. Please remember to take your own food container home after the event.

After dinner, put on your dancing shoes and prance around to work off the calories or sing your hearts out when the karaoke is on. Bring along a musical instrument and discover a new talent amongst our Casa members!

Nothing fancy, just an evening of fellowship with our Casa members and friends with singing and dancing and the chance to enjoy a variety of great food prepared by ourselves that will certainly make It a memorable and fun day for us all. You may even pick up a new recipe that evening.

The space is limited, so please contact our Social Co-ordinator, Lyce Rozario to confirm that you would like to attend this fun event. Please let Lyce know what dish you will be bringing and if you will be joining with another family member or friend to prepare that same dish for our dinner. You may pay the user fee indicated above when you come that evening.
