Blog Action Day 2011: FOOD

I was having a hard time getting into the groove of writing a post tonight.  This happens when I missed blogging the events and happenings I wanted to blog about (due to lack of time).  I kind of get overwhelmed. Part of me wants to catch up and still blog about it, and part of me says just let it go and move forward.

So what finally motivated me to move forward and write this post?  It’s the #BAD11.  It means “Blog Action Day 2011“.  I registered tonight.  I am officially in and all I have to do is to blog on October 16, 2011 about FOOD.  Yes, FOOOD!  I already have a great idea of what I am going to blog about.  Maui related of course! Blog Action Day is a powerful blog event online.  It started in 2007 and I participated on the first one. I am excited to participate again this year.  If you’re interested to find out more about it, go to the Blog Action day official website.

Chinese New Year 2010 on Maui

YOT2010-POSTER-A-1-2There are various events that will go on in celebration of the Chinese New Year 2010 on Maui.  To start with, I want to highlight the celebration that is going to be happening at the Maui Mall on Saturday, February 20, 2010 at 10AM to 2PM.   Details below:

The sights and sounds of Chinese New Year take center stage at Maui Mall on Saturday, February 20th when the Year of the Tiger makes its auspicious debut. Lion Dancers from the Maui Chinese Martial Arts Academy start things off at 10 am, with a colorful display of stylized martial arts movements beneath the dramatic lion head and flowing mane. The loud accompanying drums and cymbals ward off “evil spirits” while the lion delivers blessings. Everyone is invited to join in and “feed” the lion with lay see for good luck in the coming year.

A Keiki Chinese Attire Contest is up next with prizes and free Good Luck photos for kids in costume. Also for all others, Good Luck photos provided by Photography by Irvin with an authentic lion head from the Maui Chinese Cultural Society collection cost is $8.88 each photo.

Also kicking off a first-ever Chinese Children Art Contest from grades kindergarten to high school seniors for cash prizes. Around noon, Chef Dean Louie from the MCC Culinary Arts Academy will do a Chinese Cooking demonstration which the lucky audience will no doubt get to sample.

Be sure to pick up lunch at the food booths so you can sit and enjoy a variety of entertainment from the Kalimaya Ribbon Dancers to authentic Chinese music by Loretta Lau and Ranga Pae.

There will be free Whole Foods Market reusable bags for the first 500 participants, Tiger and animal balloons for the kids, calligraphy, food and craft booths and much more.

To be continued.  More photos and Chinese New year Celebration on the next post.
