  1. I can make Chinese traditional new year’s food-dumpling, because I am from north of China, so if there is anything need me, I can help.

    • Thanks, Jie, for your kind offer. However, we are advised by the Uni that food provided for the public should be following official procedure for safety and health concerns. We hope that you can make nice jiaozi dumplings to entertain yourself and your friends. Any self-created materials regarding making jiaozi (text, images, or videos) are great for us to share with a wider community of people who are fond of Chinese cuisine. Hope you can also attend some of our events, if not all, to celebrate the Spring Festival with us all.

  2. Really nice and good opportunity to experience Chinese culture and cultural diversity in Belfast. I can’t wait to attend these activities.
