We were fortunate enough to find seats at the same table as Prof. Gao and his delightful family.

The evening actuallly went on pretty well.  We were shown a video clip of how The Lantern Festical was celebrated in China

The food from Little Panda was good, and they even made "Tang Yuan", and a curry dish, but I still wish the organizers had catered from Sunrise.

After dinner, random ticket numbers were called out and OURS got picked!  We had to answer a couple of riddles,
