Would you find it strange to say “Happy New Year” on February 8? Not if you are Chinese or if you happened to be at Queen of Peace on that day.
To herald in the Year of the Monkey, the Residents enjoyed a Chinese meal together in the auditorium. The kitchen staff, aided by a Singaporean Little Sister in the Queen of Peace Community, worked at making it as authentic as possible.
A Chinese meal takes time to prepare and so one of the therapists, who is from Hong Kong, and her family came to help the week-end before with the preparations.
