First Chiu Chow Cultural Festival第一屆潮州文化節

Introduction – A Showcase of A Way of Tea and Delicate Crusine

In order to promote Chiu Chow culture and providing an re-union opportunity for Chiu Chow Villagers, from 1:00pm to 5:30pm on September 15, Chiu Chow Benevolent Association of BC Canada hosted the First Chiu Chow Cultural Festival at Radisson Hotel in Richmond.

Admission was free. One could try out Chiu Chow Kung Fu Tea and purchase Chiu Chow mashed yam moon cake, shrimp and crab dates, sweet and sour vegetable as well as a variety of family-styled local Chiu Chow cruisine. Recreational activities included well-known Chiu Chow folk songs and a few Chiu Chow dramas; as well, Miss Kan Kwan Ming (translated) sang a few songs. The festival showcased Chiu Chow folklore knickknacks, and introduced the beauty of the Chiu Chow region and areas, allowing a display of the various facets of Chiu Chow’s cites, counties, and villages. There were also lucky draws and free lanterns, as well as high quality tea leaf foods for purchase.

The festival boasted the first of similar events in Vancouver and North America; participants enjoyed the day with the brand new programme.

“I Went to the First Chiu Chow Cultural Festival”

Kwan Wai Man (關慧文)

Cannot say I had known a great deal about Chiu Chow culture until lately – it turned out that a culture can be so sensuous.

September 15 – the First Chiu Chow Cultural Festival had its doors opened. Some time past twelve, people started to mushroom in and crowded the display and food booths. It had became loud and suddenly the Radisson Hotel hall was getting filled. The whole venue was vitalized with the energy of the Chiu Chow Man.

Stepping into the venue and one would find herself in the midst of tea fragrance, the nontrivial brewing procedure brought out the tenderness of Chiu Chow Kung Fu Tea, each drop was invaluable. What you would do is to warm up the tea pot and cups with hot water, so that the tea leaf fragrance would come out of them. After a little time of brewing, each cup would then be poured the tea while each cup would be ensured hot and nice. The process was carried out with great care and delicacy – just like the virtue of patience of Chiu Chow ladies who are also tender and gentle, the more one get to know them the more one appreciates their inner beauty.

And what about Chiu Chow candies? There they were just as they were, nothing extravagant. One likes those candies because of their originial sweetness and taste. They were there telling you about the practical side of Chiu Chow character, that Chiu Chow men and women are authentic and no-frills.

Four hours of programme, four hours of songs and music. On top of singers on stage there were video movies ensuring your satisfaction of entertainment. As a non-Chiu Chower I did not understand the content. What I did notice was the ups and downs of the songs and variances of the actors’ facial expressions, making a high-powered atmosphere – just like Chiu Chow men and women – strong yet having that side gentleness.

The Festival was a success. Not only because of the 2000 plus that attended, and not only because of the entertainment and foods and drinks, but allowing a non-Chiu Chower like me to find great interest in making a Chiu Chow friend over the fine wine, having a nice talk about culture and life!

Our Tributes…

Paul has touched many of us in his walk on earth. We have been blessed by his warm friendship and hospitality. His dedication and contribution were significant to many Christian ministries. One of the reasons we committed ourselves to serve as volunteer EMAS staff was because of Paul, whose zeal in serving the Lord was so impressive. Even in his sickness, God’s business was always first in his mind. He surely was a living example for us, and an inspiration and encouragement to many. We were honored to have the following tributes to him, but words would not be sufficient to express our sincere thanks and deepest appreciation to Paul and his family:

“With brother Paul Lo’s leaving to be with the Lord, it sure cast a shadow of sadness over us. But knowing that he is only asleep in the Lord, and that one day we shall wake up with him together to sing praises as of old times, let’s be encouraged. and give thanks unceasingly. Brother Paul went with us to China East on my last trip. He was a generous man and a faithful servant of God! I miss him very much. May God grant peace and comfort to Jady and family.”

Albert Lam

“I first became acquainted with Paul when I assumed my role with EMAS in 1997. During these years were not only has occasion to interact at EMAS board meetings, but also while traveling with the China East term, while visiting Hong Kong to explore opening an EMAS branch office, and whilst enjoying hospitality in his Vancouver home. It was a challenge to keep up with Paul, not just temporally, but also in relationship. He has touched the hearts of so many; it seemed like there were multitudes of people who trusted him, on both sides of the Pacific. He taught me that effective leadership comes from having taken the time to develop deep relationships. Thank you Paul – your lesson continues to be cherished.”

Wayne Elford, Executive Director
EMAS & CMDS Canada

Thanks be to God for the provision of funds, so that we could participate in building the first Pok Oi Hospital in China. A hospital in Toronto donated an X-ray machine and ten beds which were transported to Vancouver by a Canadian Military Airplane on a cold night, arriving very late in the day. A friend who was also a believer of Christ owned and operated a moving company, he and his son waited all night till midnight at the airport so that the cargos can be moved into his warehouse. Not only did he busy himself the whole night, he was willing to help me transport over to Lingsia free of charge. Not until after that did I found out that this brother was suffering from Cancer, and was undergoing chemotherapy, only he did not say a word about his own difficulty. Because of his love of God he sacraficed that much over the work of Lingsia, my heart was deeply touched and greatly encouraged.

參加後感想 – 第一屆潮州文化節後感

關慧文

潮州文化與我,素昧平生,因緣遇上,相逢恨晚,文化原來可以觸動五官,活色生香。

九月十五日,第一屆潮州文化節正式開幕。十二時許,但見人群絡繹不絕,擠滿各展覽及美食攤位,喧鬧之聲更是不絕於耳,一時間,雲集瑞迪森大酒店會堂之人仕多得很,那種賓墟與澎湃之熱情,儼如傳說中潮州漢子的性情 ─ 熱烈及豪邁。

踏入會場,茶香撲鼻,點滴馥郁,不簡單的調製過程,帶出潮州功夫茶的細膩,真是點滴可貴。泡茶之法是先用大滾水把茶具燙暖,好讓後來加入之茶葉香氣溢出,稍焗再環迴把逐杯斟滿,確保每杯均水滾茶靚。調製過程一絲不苟,真正慢工出細貨,恰似潮州女子擁有過人之能耐,卻又細膩嬌矜,愈接觸則愈能感受到她們不凡的內在。

再談談展出的潮州糖果吧,它們的包裝絕不華美,你只會覺得它們是原原本本,不加人工粉飾雕琢的擺放在那裡,喜歡那些糖果,完全是因為它們原味的甜膩,與實實在在的口感,貫徹實而不華的潮州風格,就好像告訴你,潮州男女同樣是如何不重視人工雕琢,他(她)們是那麼真真實實的坦然存在。

四個多小時的潮州文化節會場內,不斷傳送出不絕於耳的歌聲與音樂。台上有真人獻唱外, 更有歌劇電影播放,以滿足視聽之娛。作為非潮藉人仕自不明白電影內容與歌詞,但聞歌聲一時慷慨激昂,一時溫婉柔情,劇中人物表情變化多端,諦造出攝人氣魄,與潮籍男女粗中有細,義薄雲天的慷慨氣魄不無兩樣。

是次潮州文化節是成功的。不單是超逾二千人的賓墟場面,也不是不斷提供吃喝玩樂滿足口腹之娛的節目安排,而是讓非潮籍人仕的我,有強烈興趣找個潮籍人仕交個朋友,把酒言歡,暢談文化與人生!

感謝神為我們預備了足夠的經費,可以籌建在中國第一間博愛醫院。多倫多某間醫院捐贈了一台X光機器及十張病床,在一個寒冷的晚上,由加拿大的軍機幫忙運送到溫哥華,抵達時已是深夜的時間。有一位信主的朋友開設了一間搬運公司,那天晚上他帶同兒子一起去機場守候到夜半,再把貨物卸到他的貨倉裡。不但忙碌了整個晚上,他又願意為我免費運送到寧夏。事後我才知道這位弟兄已患上了癌症,而且正在接受化療的期間,可是他一句都沒有提及他自己的難處。因著他對神的愛而在寧夏工作上有如此的犧牲,我的心不但深受感動,且得到無比的鼓勵。
