Fortune Cookie, Pictured Left
Sunday, February 14Th was not only a day of love, but also a celebration of the Lunar New Year. Many people in the world observed the Year of the Tiger!-Bravery. Look at these amazing pictures from a parade in Chinatown during the Olympics, compliments of Reuters and the Toronto Sun.com.
While viewing New York City's China Town events, I came across an amazing author, with a relative statement of observation. "There are more Chinese restaurants in America than McDonalds, Burger Kings, and Wendys combined," states Jennifer 8. Lee, author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles. (A Book of Adventure through the Mysteries of Chinese Food.)
Certainly, I need no stats to agree with this statement. In my neighborhood alone, there are at least 5 Chinese Restaurants within three streets of my home, and many more within walking distance. Ms.Lee's writing and research is very engaging and interesting as well. She even posts a video which reveals how more American fortune cookies are than Chinese.
Ms. Lee will have a Massachusetts appearance as indicated on her blog with Ming Tsai, James Beard. He is an award-winning chef and owner of Blue Ginger and host of the Emmy-nominated Simply Ming on WGBH. The event is to benefit AAJA New England and its Internship & Scholarship Fund. It will be held on Thursday, March 11, 6:30 p.m at the Blue Ginger 583 Washington Street Wellesley, MA 02482. The First 25 ticket holders will receive her new book!
Ms. Lee is also a writer for the New York Times and is tweeting about her experiences in Vancouver, so check her out!
Be brave to accomplish the goals in your life. Be educated about the world around you and share relative information with friends. Be Blessed! Peace.
