I·CARE Floral Festival – Flowers to be grown

Organized by I • CARE programme, I • CARE Floral Festival provided a chance for CUHK members to enjoy beautiful campus scenes and express themselves in different ways. On 2 April, the Festival held its finale party beside the Lake Ad Excellentiam. On the lawn, students, alumni and teachers shared and enjoyed piece after piece of relaxing music and inspiring poetry. Vice-Chancellor Prof. Joseph Sung also read a poem by Buddhist monk Hong Yi during his opening address. The Chung Brothers, a local music band, presented the theme song that was specially composed for the Floral Festival. The song had been uploaded to Youtube earlier and has become a popular hit already. Singer Yoyo Sham was also invited to perform her latest release at the party with the band Hill Cheung.

Before the performance started, Chinese tea, Hakka traditional snacks and chessboard were prepared nearby for the participants to enjoy. Decorated with sculptures and special lighting effects, the beauty of Lake Ad Excellentiam was emphasised by the humanistic art.

With the theme of ‘Those Unplanted Flowers’, I • CARE Floral Festival has arranged a series of activities for CUHK members and the public in the past few weeks, including lectures, outings, reading club and film screening. To match the theme, students were encouraged to express themselves through music, poems, pictures, books and words. Let’s review the highlights of the Floral Festival via the video.

Southeast Asian Flavor on Campus

With the arrival of the warm and humid season, refreshing Southeast Asian cuisine would be a big treat.

That’s why the head chef of Orchid Lodge, Frances Kwan, decided to add four mouth-watering Southeast Asian dishes after the Easter Holiday. They are: Thai style halibut, tomato and cucumber salad, pork chop in tom yam kung soup with noodle, Malaysian bak kut teh and Hainanese chicken with ginger rice. To give customers the authentic taste of Southeast Asia, Chef Kwan always takes great care with the ingredients. For example, the spice for bak kut teh was bought during her trip to Malaysia.

The new lunch menu will last only two weeks until 25 April. So, act fast to enjoy this Southeast Asia cuisine on campus.
