We all know Vancouver is a multicultural city, however Chinese culture is a huge influence in this city. I was so surprised that my daughter’s school perform a Chinese song for the Chinese New Year at their event. My daughter was so pour to help and teach her classmates to sing the song, although she is  not really versed to sing in Chinese. 众所周知,温哥华是个多文化汇聚的城市,然而,中国文化对这座城市发挥了举足轻重的影响。令我很惊讶的是,我女儿的学校就在春节联欢会上教孩子们唱中国歌。我女儿自然很骄傲,做起了小老师,帮着教唱,尽管她的中文也不说的怎么样。 Celebration 02 IMG_7122 IMG_7123 IMG_7126 IMG_7127 During our Chinese New Year festival, The Chinese theater musical “Mulan” is touring West Canada from Vancouver to Victoria and Nanaimo . The story of “Mulan” is a classic Chinese story known around the world. The theatrical musical combines the Chinese cultural values of love, justice, loyalty and filial duty into on epic story. 在新春佳节里,中国传统戏剧“木兰”在西加拿大巡回上演,从温哥华一直到维多利亚和纳奈莫。“木兰”这一中国古代经典故事早就在世界范围传颂。这出戏剧将爱、公正、忠诚和孝道这些中国文化价值结合到了这一传世故事中。 mmexport1455652894606 I had a chance to see the sneak peak preview of the “Mulan” drum percussion performance at a Fashion boutique on Chinese New Year shopping night and It was amazing! I really appreciate how our culture embraces each other. 我有机会在中国新年时尚购物之夜一睹“木兰”中的击鼓表演,演出棒极了!我很感慨在温哥华我们中华文化竟然能如此和谐地相互吸纳包容。 mmexport1455652484875 mmexport1455392505593 Celebration 04 One my friends even told me every year her daughter’s elementary school will organize with the Chinese parents to provide 5000 dumplings as hot lunch for their Chinese New Year school event. 我的一位朋友甚至还告诉我,每年她女儿所在的小学都会组织与中国家长一起制作5000个饺子作为整个学校的午餐,为他们的节日校园活动助兴。 Celebration 03 _DSC2076 The world  embraces Chinese culture and keeps a close eye on China. Let’s celebrate our wonderful global citizen life. 如今全球都在拥抱中国文化,都在密切地关注中国的发展。让我们共同欢庆我们精彩的世界公民生活。 angela-signature2-a-moved-out
