Last Saturday I had picnic with some Hong Kong people. The picnic was organized by HK student association (HKSA) of UMD. We went to Black Hill Regional Park, which is some 50 minutes drive from College Park.
Photo taken next to the visitor center.
This is where we had picnic. There were so many Chinese/Hong Kong dishes that I just kept eating without taking pictures! This is a partial list of food I had had:
豆腐花 (There were many people interested in how to make this dessert and asked the folk who prepared this for the recipe! It’s real good and I had refilled twice!)
(I had also had some salad and fruits but they were not as important to me compare to those above 😛 )
(There were also some games like Bingo and 大電視 prepared by the exco (thanks!) and they were fun, but still I enjoyed the food more.)
After the food and the games I took some photos around the lake:
There’s also a boat tour. The scenery at the other side of the lake is great but due to the position of the sun at the evening, they appeared washed-out, as can be seen from the picture.
The visitor center. The sky is so blue with almost no clouds. This is probably due to a hurricane out there on the Atlantic ocean. Few days after the picnic the temperature soars to 105oF (40.5oC)!
Looks like the one you find in Windows, huh?
P.S. The card game “take 6″ is interesting, though.
P.P.S. Forgot to ask about how to obtain the ingredients for making Hong Kong style milk tea…
P.P.P.S. Yesterday the HKSA organized an “open sem rice" and I had the opportunity of having even more Chinese dishes:
豆腐花 (oh this is not as good as the one last week though)
