In the year prior, I was excited to see the Confucius Insititute host this event about my culture. This year, I did not take any pictures unfortunately, but I took a sister from my sorority to witness this event. I did miss the dragon dance, but I got to view some of the booths. My favorite booth this year was the one about caligraphy. I do have a Chinese name and so did my sister, so we both practiced writing our Chinese name with a brush and ink.
I did not try the food though because I realized that OU Housing and Food Services made the food. Having worked in Housing and Food Services my first year, I know that the Asian food that they made was nowhere close to the authenticity of my culture. In the future, I hope they will find a venue that would provide better idea of how my culture’s food tastes.
