Lunch Meeting - Monday 18 February 2013

Lunch meeting at the Rotary Club of Queenstown during the Chinese New Year festivities was vibrant with the traditional "lo hei" bringing forth the blessings for the New Year. 
The ingredients were raw fish which signifies abundance throughout the year, lime for good luck and smooth sailing, pepper to attract wealth and treasures, oil for numerous resources of wealth, carrots for blessings of good luck, shredded green radish for eternal youth, shredded white radish for prosperity in business and promotion at work, sesame seeds for a flourishing business, peanut crubs for a household filled with gold and silver and last but not least, deep fried flour crisps in the shape of golden pillows which signifies a floor full of gold

Our speaker for the luncheon was Manfred Giehman who was a member of the Rotary Club of Queenstown and now resides in Bali. He spoke on his interesting collection of rare and exquisite Indonesian Jewellery where he meticulously put together in a lovely coffee table book which he presented during the lunch.
