Over twenty years ago (which I can hardly believe!), I was a trainer at Ingres, a database company. One of my loveliest friends was a lady called Lai Chueng. She emigrated to San Francisco, but we kept in touch. Every year, we exchange “Gong Hey Fat Choy!” wishes when Chinese New Year comes around.
This year, Lai sent me a link to a video of her beautiful daughter, Alice, performing in the school lion dance. She is the first dragon to enter the hall and on the left for most of the film. It is very festive and reminds me of the wonderful parades in Hong Kong where I lived as a teenager.
Take a look. Lai has every right to be a proud Mum. Well danced Alice!
