Duck For CNY Ang Pow

Posted by mamabok | Amusing/Bizarre,Canadian,Chinese,Food From Home,Food Review,Useful Links | Friday 30 January 2009 2:24 am

It pays to be nice to the chinese restaurant owner.. for they always think of you .. during the festive season .. even though.. not many ppl in this town knows about it.  I had offered to collaborate with the high school here for the exchange students from Asia… to have a reunion dinner at the Chinese restaurant.. but the high school.. never returned my call till today.  I had spoken with the principal .. about it.. and he had enthusiastically told me.. that he will get the foreign student co-ordinator to contact me.. but nope .. nothing.  Guess they don’t really care about other ppl’s culture.. nor respect or is willing to show any kind of compassion for these foreign students who are so far away from home.. and paid tons of money to come here to student.

Anyhow, Mr Choo from New Century restaurant.. made a who duck for me.. and refused to take my money .. he said it was my CNY ang pow.. hahhahaha!! it was kinda funny..  because he even delivered the duck.. and make a commotion about not taking money from me.  The customers at our store.. was left staring at two crazy chinese.. talking in Cantonese.. and saying ..  “gong hei fatt choi, gong hei fatt choi” to each other..  ;).  He would be someone i would go into business with for sure.. and his brother was talking about  auto parts franchises, so we’ll see, we’ll see what the new year brings eh.

    That’s very nice of Mr. Choo. I’m trying to imagine how 2 crazy chinese kept wishing each other gong hei fatt choi 😀 So did you enjoy the duck?

    I wonder how it tastes. I don`t eat meat (from childhood, allergy) except vegetables and seafood thus I do not know how duck tastes like.
    My husband ate duck before in HK . He is a food lover. Of course. all thumbs up for ducks.
