Community Leaders Celebrate  By Asian American Fede ration of Florida

Asian American Heritage Month at Governor’s Mansion More than 300 Asian American community leaders across Florida attended the reception at the Governor’s Mansion in Tallahassee on May 24, 2010 to celebrate the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. In 1978, Congress passed a joined Congressional Resolution to commemorate Asian American Heritage Week during the first week of May , in recognition of two important events: the arrival of the first Japanese Immigrants in America on May 7, 1843, and the completion of the transcontinental railroad (by many Chinese laborers) on May 10, 1869. In 1990 Congress voted to expand it from a week to a month long celebration and in May 1992, the month of May was permanently designated as “Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month.”

“He was the first Governor in Florida to have issued a proclamation recognizing the contribution of Asian Pacific Americans, and joining the community in its celebration of Asian Pacific Heritage Month”, says Clyde Diao, Deputy Policy Coordinator for the Florida’s Finance and Economic Analysis Policy Unit. “Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have shared common struggles throughout their histories in America - including efforts to overcome racial, social, and religious discrimination. Through perseverance and hard work, they have achieved success and prospered as leaders in business, academia, and public service.”

Diao also serves as Chairman of the Asian Coalition of Tallahassee (ACT), an umbrella organization of about 15 associations and groups that aims to unite the Asian communities in the Tallahassee area for promoting and sharing the rich Asian culture and heritage with the citizens of Tallahassee through community involvement and cultural events. “Asian Pacific Americans are ethnically diverse, but through our entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as our love of family and community, we have enriched our nation,” adds Thayumanasamy Somasundaram, President of the India Association of Tallahassee. “We are certainly honored that the Governor is recognizing our contribution to American society.”

As a token of appreciation, Dr. Joy Bruce, President of the Asian American Federation of Florida, presented the Governor with a framed Census 2010 Poster , showing portraits of local Asian leaders that make up the “new face” of Florida. The poster was signed by officers and members of the Federation that drove from Jacksonville, Orlando, Palm Bay, Miami and other parts of the State to join Governor’s reception. “This is an important year for us,” says Dr. Bruce, “because we are finally getting seen and heard as an important segment of society. We are also now joining hands in unity to push for a complete 2010 Census count of Asian Pacific Americans in Florida, that only happens every 10 years.”

Asians in Florida, in particular, have received very little support from the government, due to their lack of awareness on how the Census could affect them. During the 2000 Census, only 266,256 Asians were counted throughout the State of Florida. “We have a much higher number than that,” adds Dr. Bruce. “It is important for us to get accurately counted so that the government and main-

stream media will be aware of how much we are contributing to society, and what kind of services, resources and programs we need to meet the needs of our community. We need to cooperate when the Census takers knock on our doors, to make sure that we are counted. ” America has had a very successful first half of the 2010 Census, where more than 72 percent of the nation’s households (including Florida) mailed back their census forms. Still, households that either didn’t mail back their form or didn’t receive one will be followed by door to door visits through July 10, to ensure that no one is missed in the Census.

This year also marks the tenth anniversary of the establishment of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI), which was created by President Clinton to improve the quality of life in underserved Asian American and Pacific Islander communities through increased participation in federal programs, and to make sure that the government is successfully working to address disparities in health care, in education, and economic opportunity that exists within various AAPI communities. Last October 2009, President Obama signed an executive order reestablishing the White House Initiative on AAPI. Christina Lagdameo, Deputy Director of White House Initiative on AAPI will be meeting with delegates of the Asian American Federation of Florida in Miami on June 7, 2010, to share information about government resources and initiatives to increase AAPI access to educational opportunities and participation in federal programs.

First Friday Gallery Tour is organized by Tallahassee’s Council on Cultural and Arts (COCA) to encourage people to visit art galleries thorough out the city on the first Friday of every month. With this Art Exhibition, ACT hopes to showcase the talents of Asian visual artists. Celebration at CGE On Saturday, May 15, 2010 fifteen different groups and associations representing various Asian and Asian-Pacific countries gathered at the Center for Global Engagement for a daylong celebration of music, dance, visual and martial art displays. Dancers from World Ballet, Troupe Arabesque, Tallahassee Japanese Community, TCC Dance Company, and Indian Gujarati Samaj performed several pieces representing their cultures and heritages dressed in beautiful ethnic attire. Members from the Chinese, Taiwanese, and Filipino communities played musical instruments, and sang vocal numbers. Okinawan martial arts and Arni de Mano groups demonstrated self-defense skills. Tallahassee mayor John Marks III welcomed the diversity and applauded the skills of the performers. Members of FSU’s Center for Global Engagement were most passionate supporters of the gathering. This is obvious since large fraction of international students attending the colleges in Tallahassee come from Asian countries.

Classical Dance Recital The following day two Indian classical dancer/ choreographers Srividya Angara and Megaah Ashhok took to the stage at FSU’s Moore auditorium and enthralled the crowd with several classical dance numbers. The dances they performed belonged to the Kuchipudi style of the South Indian classical dance genre. Since they were not only dancers but choreographers themselves, they performed fusion numbers that combined the classical Indian dance set to Western Classical music. Young children from Tallahassee who were learning the classical dance form themselves performed a piece.

Asians from South, Central, Northwest, Southeast and North Florida were invited to the reception to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage month.

During the event, Mr Bob Sparks, Executive Deputy Chief of Staff for the Governor, Dr. Joy Bruce, President, AAFF, Dr. Thayumanasamy Somasundaram, President, India Association of Tallahassee, Dr. Clyde Diao, Chairman, Asian Coalition of Tallahassee, and finally Honorable Charlie Crist, Governor of Florida spoke. Dr. Bruce praised the Governor for recognizing Florida Asian American communities’ aspirations and Dr. Somasundaram mentioned that the Governor’s willingness to engage with diverse group of people will make him a great role model for young people who are the future of Florida. During his speech, Dr. Diao mentioned that Governor Crist was the first Florida Governor to make a proclamation recognizing the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and praised his leadership for continuing the tradition. Governor Crist mentioned that he is happy to part of Florida that is attracting people from diverse cultures and heritages, and recalled that he himself is a grandson of immigrant from Cyprus. He concluded that Florida benefits from diversity of people irrespective of whether they are Asian Americans, Hispanic American, or African Americans.

2010 Bathing Buddha Ceremony & Buddhist Floral Exhibition

Three Acts of Goodness – Do Good Deeds, Say Good Words, Think Good Thoughts Bathing Buddha Ceremony is the most celebrated festival among Buddhists throughout the world. The Festival is to celebrate the birth of Buddha which took place 2,600 years ago in northern India. This year, Guang Ming Temple in Orlando had the Bathing Buddha celebration on May 16. Before 10:30am, the Main Shrine was already filled with people who were waiting for the grand opening ceremony. A red flyer of “Three Acts of Goodness” was posted on the back of every chair to encourage participants to “do good thing, speak good words and think good thoughts”. The ceremony started with welcoming the Venerables and distinguished guests and opening speech by Venerable Chueh Fan. After praying, there were traditional offerings including candles, fruits, flowers and incense. The rest of the day’s activities included Taiko Drummers, Indian Dances, Chinese Acrobatics, Chinese Dances, Tea Ceremony Demonstration, Chinese Calligraphy, Floral Exhibition, Food Fair, Temple Tour and Raffle Drawings.

World T’ai Chi & Qigong Day  By Patricia Winters in Central Florida

A group of people from all ages and all experience levels of Tai Chi and qigong came together at Barber Park on April 24, 2010 with one purpose in mind: to promote world healing. This is what World Tai Chi and Qigong Day is all about. At 10: am in all time zones around the world, people are doing these “meditative exercises” to promote Tai Chi and Qigong, and to create a wave of healing around the world. I heard about this event, and thought it would be great to promote it here in Orlando, and I have been organizing it here for the past five years. Each year it gets bigger and better! This year I achieved my goal of getting a proclamation declaring April 24th, 2010 World Tai Chi/ Qigong Day in Orlando, from Mayor Buddy Dyer. I was delighted to receive this acknowledgement of World Tai Chi Day. At the event, about five minutes before 10:00 am, people started finding places to do their forms. At precisely 10:00 am, everyone began performing their own styles of Tai Chi and Qigong. Some of the long forms lasted 20 minutes, and many of the people performing shorter forms re-

peated theirs more than once. There was a wonderful “8 pieces of Brocade” qigong form done by Sifu Sherri and her group. After all had finished, there was a great sense of calm and positive energy amongst the participants. We then shared experiences and listened to a presentation the history of Tai Chi and Qigong. There was a “pot luck” lunch, where everyone brought food and drink for their group and to share. No one left hungry! We also had friendship demonstrations, where anyone who wanted to showed their forms and weapons routines in front of the group. This event was all about sharing and getting new people interested in these wonderful arts. These arts are a very “patient” kind of martial art and by watching those who have been practicing a long time, you can see the “internal” aspect of the art revealed! After this, there was a discussion of the I-Ching, and an explanation of Push Hands, which is a sensitivity drill that trains the martial aspect of Tai Chi Chuan. Learning these drills will make you much more aware of both yourself, your partner, and what is going on around you.

Sifu Cliff Black (back) and Carlo Adair (front) doing Yang style

After a full day of shared energy and learning experiences, everyone felt great, and hopefully the Earth felt a little better too! I would like to thank everyone that participated in this event, especially the following teachers and sifus: Cliff Black, Sherri Duthing, Alex Liu, Katharine Vaccaro, Bob Waers and Jack Wright. Sifu Sam Winters is a disciplined longtime practitioner of Tai Chi and Qigong of the Hsin Yung-I Chuan School of Tai Chi. He has performed at many Chinese festivals in the Orlando area for the past three years. He is a judge at the International Chinese Martial Arts tournaments, and has previously received medals competing in these tournaments.

The Florida Recovery Office (FEMA) celebrates Asian Pacific American Heritage Month  By Asia Trend

Asian American Heritage Month was celebrated throughout the month of May. Shally Wong from Asia Trend Magazine was invited to share with the employees at FEMA her view about diversity and her passion of becoming a publisher. “The true diversity is about learning from others who are not the same and respect for all,” says Shally Wong in her speech. The mission of Asia Trend Magazine is to serve as a bridge between East and West. She believes that only understanding can ultimately solve conflict. The Director of the Recovery Office, Robert Ives in his closing remarks stated that “Diversity is not a program or a policy; it is our organizational fabric. Diversity drives innovations and encourages fresh approaches. FEMA must be a diverse workforce.”

Other programs included demonstration - “The Art of of Kwon Do” by Master Valez and a showcase of Asian Heritage by FEMA employees. This program was organized by the Equal Rights Office and the Special Observances Planning Committee.

FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards. FEMA has more than 3,700 full time employees. They work at FEMA headquarters in Washington D.C., at regional and area offices across the country, the Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center, and the National Emergency Training Center in Emmitsburg, Maryland.

When rice burgers were introduced in 1987, Tsukune Rice Burger was the very first. Tsukune is Japanese chicken meatballs fried or grilled and seasoned with sweet soy sauce. At MOS Burger, flat and round Tsukune was sandwiched in rice buns. Tsukune Burger is no longer available, but they serve Yakiniku (grilled beef strips) Rice Burger, Kaisen Kakiage (seafood fritter) Burger and Kinpira (fried burdock and carrot) Rice Burger these days. Kaisen Kakiage Burger (¥300) and Hot Tea (¥210) I bought Kaisen Kakiage Rice Burger and hot tea for lunch on that day. After finishing the rice burger, I was still hungry.....hungry for Yakiniku Rice Burger! Of course I got one. Both are so yummy and very filling because of the rice. I was satisfied and my stomach was settled.

When Choosing A Business Entity: Which One Is Right For Me?

 By Tae Shin Attorney at Law

Whether you are starting a business or purchasing investment property, one of the first decisions you will have to make is the choice of entity that will be used to own your business or investment. Choice of entity means the legal form your business will take. Popular entities include the limited liability company (LLC) and the S corporation. Other less frequently used entities are general and limited partnerships, limited liability limited partnerships and traditional C corporations. The selection of a business entity should take into account federal tax law, state liability statutes, estate planning and asset protection considerations. From a liability perspective, corporations (both C and S corporations) and LLCs provide excellent protection to their owners from liabilities. General partnerships afford virtually no liability protection and are seldom used to own small businesses or investment properties. For federal tax purposes, S corporations and LLCs are pass through entities. This means that the profits and losses of S corporations and LLCs flow through or pass through to the shareholders or members who report the income or loss on their tax returns. Because the pass through profits are taxed only once to the shareholders or members, the S corporation and LLC eliminate

double taxation commonly associated with C corporation distributions. LLCs are more commonly used than S corporations because they require less maintenance and upkeep than S corporations and have virtually no restrictions on who can own an interest in the LLC. In the case of an active business, either the S corporation or LLC may be used. However, if the entity is to own investment real property, the LLC is almost always preferred over the S corporation. This is because real property can be transferred into and out of LLCs without recognizing the gain from the property’s appreciation. LLCs also offer protection from creditors in a way that corporations do not. In a corporation, a creditor simply attaches the shares of a debtor’s stock to gain all the debtor’s rights in the corporation, including right to sell the shares. In an LLC (as well as a limited partnership), a creditor is only entitled to a charging order, or the rights to distributions from the LLC or limited partnership interests that the debtor owns.

an LLC, the creditor could only obtain a charging order on the future distributions of cash from the LLC and would not be able to force a sale of the property to satisfy the debt. The charging order includes the right to the LLC’s k-1, which results in the creditor having to report income of the LLC whether or not the LLC distributes any cash. This results in the creditor having to pay tax on the LLC’s income even though the LLC never distributes any cash. It is never too late to review business or investment structures to determine whether you have the proper entities in place to protect your investments. A review by an attorney can save you money in the long run.

For example, if a debtor owed money to a creditor and the debtor’s only asset was a parcel of rental property held in a corporation, the creditor could attach the debtor’s shares in the corporation and sell the property to satisfy its debt. However, if the same property was held in

Loosing a tooth doesn’t have to ruin your smile Tooth loss dosen’t have to ruin your smile or your youthful appearance. Denistry has sevral cosmetic options for the tooth replacement that restore your appearance while maintaining the propper function of the teeth. Replacing missing teeth is important to keep the teeth from shifting into the space of the lost tooth. Dental implants and bridges are two solutions for this problem. Dental implants can provide an option that feels and looks like the natrual tooth. Implants are metal posts which are surgical placed into the bone under the gum to act as a replacement root of the tooth. Once the implant is securely healed into the bone,then the visable crown of the tooth can be built on top of it . The surgeon who places the implant into the bone must allow time for the bone to heal around the implant securing into place. It is important that the implant acts as a strong base or the root for the tooth . Therefore, your dentist must wait several weeks or months before proceeding to build the crown or visible part of the tooth on top of the implant. If the tooth is being replaced is a front tooth, your dentist

may provide you with a temporary appliance to wear during the process. Once the implant has oseointegrated or fused to the bone , the porcelain fused to the metal crown or pure porcelain crown can be custom made to fit on top creating a natural looking tooth that functions much like your original tooth . Implants are most often made of titanium because it is proven to be compatable with bone and other tissues. However , not everyone is a candidate for implants. It is important that gum tissue and bone are in optimum health for the process to be successful. Your dentist will help determine if implants are the best treatmant for you. If you find out that you are not candidate for a dental implant , there are still options for you. Permanet bridges offer another solution for the tooth replacemant. Bridges work best when one or two missing teeth that are surrounded by healthy teeth on either side of them. These teeth are prepared by yourr dentist for crowns. An extra tooth or teeth are fabricated to fit into the space

of the missing tooth or teeth and attached to the crowns made for those anchor teeth. Your dentist will make impressions of your teeth once they are prepared for the crowns and a dental laboratory will construct the bridge. The bridge will be made to match your bite and the color of your existing teeth. This will give you a natural look and a result that increases the youthful look of your smile. A dentist that workd with cosmetic dentistry is your best resource for information. If you are considering options for replacement of missing teeth, discuss your goals with your dentist to decide on the best solution for your personal situation. Don’t go through life embarassed by your smile. Ask your dentist today about your options.

Reflexology, more than a foot message Part II The unique thing about Reflexology is that the reflex point or areas are arranged according to our actual organs. I’m a believer, so I believe God has made this arrangement to help human being to learn how to take care their health issues thousands years ago, way before modern medication was developed. Meridian plays the key role in Reflexology. What is Meridian? Approximately three thousands years ago, the Chinese has discovered the meridians in human body systems, which are pretty much similar to the electricity running in human body to supply the energies to all our body systems. In reflexology, the meridians are known as points or zones. To open these points or zones, the client will regain energy and have optimistic health. Reflexology believes that human’s disease is caused by blockage of the meridians points or zones, once the points or zones applied with reflexology technique, the blood circulation are flowing freely, the meridians then supplying normal energies to the entire body.

32 Jun 2010

The prescription from western medical mostly costs side effects. The reflexology also has reactions after receiving treatment. The following reactions are not unusual but normally will react to certain clients: 1. Increased urinations 2. Flatulence and more frequent bow movement 3. Aggravated skin condition, increased perspiration and pimples 4. Improved skin tone and tissue texture due to improved circulation 5. Increased secretions of mucous membranes in the nose, mouth and bronchial 6. Disrupted sleep patterns, either deeper or more disrupted 7. A temporary out break of a disease that has been suppressed 8. Increases discharge from the vagina in women 9. Feverishness

10. Tiredness 11. Headache 12. Depression, overwhelming desire to weep Reflexology can be treated to people of all ages and sex. It always benefits to those who has health issues, chronic pain like Cancer, Aids, Parkinson, Alzheimer to release stress and pain. Overactive teens can be treated and gradually back to normal actions. Unrested infants should be treated with light touching and can sleep through all night. Reflexology is a completely natural therapy that affords relief without the use of drugs. A person can avoid becoming ill and improve general

A Role Model’s Role Model

 By Wayne Chan

nate from a place deep inside him where along with his genius, he figured he might as well reinforce his perfectness with an irritating dash of humility. Of course, his accomplishments were truly daunting. Derrick played the piano as well, and he was known as one of the country’s most exciting prodigies. He won competition after competition, both nationally and around the world. In school, he won the California State Science project competition two years in a row. He was a straight “A” student, and graduated at the top of his class.

As a child, I was an introvert, but I loved playing dodge ball on the blacktop at school. I was a good student, and like many Asian Americans, my parents always extolled the value of studying hard, and being a well-behaved student during and after class. Every day, after coming home and finishing my homework, I practiced piano, another rite of passage for many Asian Americans growing up in the 70’s. While I didn’t have that much interest in the piano, I kept getting better and better, until I started competing in some local piano competitions and fared rather well. Yet the one thing I always loved to do was to write. I constantly wrote poems or short stories, and I discovered with just the turn of a phrase I was able to express feelings in ways I could never do out loud, particularly in front of a crowd. For all intents and purposes, I had a happy and well-adjusted childhood…except for one thing. That one thing was named Derrick Ho, or at least that’s what I am calling him. Derrick was a year older than I, one of only two or three other Asians attending Patrick Henry High School. Derrick was slim, wore wire-rimmed glasses, was soft spoken, and was a bonafide genius. Derrick was the best in everything he ever wanted to do. It didn’t matter what the activity or class was – if Derrick participated, he would be the best. Derrick had a genuinely humble manner about him, but his humbleness seemed to ema-

34 Jun 2010

Upon graduating high school, he received a full scholarship to Harvard, where he earned double majors and also joined the Harvard symphony, where he ended up playing the violin, and played so well he became the first chair violinist of the symphony. I hated Derrick. But not for the reasons you might think.

could be like Derrick”, as if true genius can be attained simply by putting down a comic book and staying up to study a half hour more. But with the passage of time, it’s hard to recall every one of Derrick’s achievements, but for those I still remember, the sheer brilliance of each event seems to increase in magnitude with each passing year, as if each accomplishment continued to become that much more unattainable to us mortals as the years rolled by. Even Derrick’s real achievements could never compare to my exaggerated recollections of what he’d done. Here are some of my recollections. You tell me if my mind is playing tricks on me. Derrick wins the Young Pianists competition, by rewriting and playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto #5. I believe he called it, Beethoven’s Fifth, The Improved Version. Derrick wins the 1976 California State Science Project competition with his project, “Global Warming – It hasn’t started yet but it’s coming!”

While Derrick’s accomplishments were surely daunting, I wasn’t particularly jealous of him. The natural impulse for most people when confronting someone with singular talent is not necessarily to be envious.

Derrick wins the 1977 California State Science Project competition with his project, “Global Warming – How I stopped it with leftover parts in my backyard.”

When standing in front of a Van Gogh painting or listening to a Beethoven concerto, your first reaction wouldn’t usually be “I feel like an idiot because I can’t do that.” One can appreciate a work of art or genius simply for what it is - genius.

I haven’t seen Derrick in over 20 years now. I hear he’s living a quiet, simple life, keeping mostly to himself and surprisingly, not taking the world by storm. I heard that he had some difficulties living up to the expectations that he and others had set for him.

Except, in this case. As many Asian Americans can probably attest, a common practice for parents to prod their kids to success was to compare their accomplishments to those of others who were excelling. Since my parents were friends of Derrick’s parents, Derrick became my “Role Model”. Inevitably, almost on a weekly basis, one or both of my parents would say something like: “Derrick just won the grand prize at the so and so festival in New York!” Or, “Derrick entered the state science fair and was just written up in the newspaper!” Or, Derrick is taking three AP classes for college and got all ‘A’s! At the end of each exclamation, my mom or dad would inevitably follow up the statement with, “Wayne, if you’d just study a little harder you

OK, maybe I’m embellishing…a little.

My guess is that if he had to do it over again, he’d like to take some time off and just read a comic book. One of these days, I’d like to catch up with him. I’d hope that despite us taking different life paths, we’d find that we both turned out OK. I’d like to shake his hand. Maybe he’d be up for a game of dodge ball. Wayne Chan, is a humor writer whose syndicated columns appear in a number of newspapers around the country. His website can be found at His most fervent wish is to see the San Diego Chargers win the Super Bowl and to be the best dad and husband he can be to his triplet kids and wife Maya. Of course, if he could be a great parent while watching the Chargers win the Superbowl - even better.

Hadashi oriental-style barefoot massage is a cutting-edge full body Asian-style massage using only the bare feet to provide broad, profound and highly effective pressure. This massage dates back as far as the 5th century and was associated with Keralite foot massage called “Chavutti Thirummal” Chavutti Thirummal was practiced by having the person positioned face down, laying on a mat and covering the body with oils. The practitioner grabbed hold of a rope hung over head using it for balance while performing this Hindu and Ayurvedic ritual with bare feet. The technique was given in conjunction with following the energy lines, similar to Thai massage. This was done in Kerala, India, located off the Indian ocean on the southern tip of India, as part of Kerala training, a martial art. The technique is believed to have begun in India spreading through surrounding countries and continents of Asia, the Oceania and Pacific Islands.

It was a warm and breezy Saturday in May and a large crowd has gathered to participate in the celebration of the rich cultures, traditions, and heritages of Asia and the Pacific. May is Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month and this particular Saturday, May 15th, people from several counties have come to the 3rd Annual Asian Pacific American Festival at the F. Burton Smith Regional Park in Brevard County. The park has a lot to offer visitors; boating, camping, disc golf, fishing, horseshoe pits, nature trails, and a playground, but today’s event will be held in the large Pavilion that can seat several hundreds of people comfortably. The beautiful stage in the Pavilion will act as the center point for today’s festivities. The event was hosted by the Florida’s Space Coast Filipino-American Charitable & educational Foundation, Inc (Florida’s SFACEF, Inc.). The mission of Florida’s SFACEF is to develop, raise

funds, finance, construct and maintain a “Center” that will promote Filipino-American folk art for education, scientific, religious, and charitable activities. SFACEF Chairperson, Romeo “Romie” K. Dela Paz was a wonderful host along with the other Board of Directors and volunteers. In celebration of APAHM a “Resolution” was made by the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners and was presented to Romie Dela Paz by Ms. Jane Conrad on behalf of the Resolution Sponsor: Mary M. Bolin Chairman of the Board of Brevard County Commissioners. Now you may be thinking how do you celebrate an Asian Pacific Festival? The answer is with a lot of cultural performances and a lot of good food.

It was a wonderful day and a perfect way to celebration the diverse cultures that make up our great country. I look forward to more celebration in the future with Florida’s SFACEF, Inc.

2010 Duanwu Festival

by Chinese American Association of Central Florida  By Asia Trend

Duanwu Festival, also known as Double Fifth or Dragon Boat Festival, is the fifth day of the fifth lunar month. Duanwu Festival is one of the most popular festivals in China. As it always falls in the hottest season of the year, Chinese American Association of Central Florida decided to celebrate this festival in the spring water at the Kelly Park, Rock Springs this year. Families and friends arrived early in the morning and enjoyed the wonderful floating tube ride. Besides, CAACF prepared a barbecue lunch, fun wooden boat race and legend telling for the members. “We would like to especially thank David Hoeh for building the boat tracks and Susan Hoeh for making the little wooden boats so that we can have a mini boat race at the park. Thanks every family that has joined us and we have a fun time together playing the games, enjoying the Zhong Zhi and learning the Duanwu story,” says Pauline Ho, president of CAACF. Chinese American Association of Central Florida is a non-profit organization founded in 1969 in Orlando. CAACF established The Chinese School and The Dancing Troupe in 1980 to promote the Chinese education and to preserve the Chinese culture. CAACF organizes three cultural events in a year including Chinese New Year, Duanwu Summer Festival (Dragon Boat Festival) and Mid-Autumn Festival. Visit for more information.
