For the few remnant stayed behind for the Winter break, we had a quick outings ourselves. We started off with a good dim sum(点心). Some students tasted dim sum for the first time, 虾饺，烧卖，凤爪，新洲炒面… It was yummy! This inspired the girls for shopping at 99 Ranch for making some Chinese meals 🙂

For the students who needed a break from studying, let’s go bowling…
Make sure you get the ball with the right weight, or you are going to have a hard time rolling it down the lane.
In between the games, someone got surprised with a cake. Where did the cake come from?? Let’s all sing Happy Birthday together.
I am sure everyone had a lot of fun, whether you are an expert, or a beginner…
Come join us next time.
