News on Hong De Lion Dance activities.

Another first for Hong De! We performed at a railway station for the first time! We were invited by VicTrack to perform at the opening of the newly refubished Glen Waverley station. After unveilling a piece of artwork, the VIP's Michael Gidley MP, Campbell Rose (VicTrack), David Sinclair (Consolidated Properties) and Liz Compton watched our lion dance performance. Thank you to VicTrack for inviting us to perform at your opening!

 We went from one end of town to another last weekend to perform at two shop openings. The second one was in Mountain Highway, Bayswater for the opening of DirecFresh. There was a large crowd there waiting for the lion dance when we arrived. Our lions performed both outside and inside the shop. Afterwards, we were offered some of the suckling roast pig - delicious! Thank you Ben for booking us and today we received another booking for Chinese New Year! We will be back again on the 21st of February!

We got a phone call last Friday to perform at the opening of My Specs Optometrist in Hampshire Road, Sunshine the next day! It was lucky for our client that we were able to attend the opening. We performed at the client's daughter's wedding last year and at the back of the shop was a 3 month old baby! Congratulations Michelle and Michael! Three of our wedding couples that we have performed for have had babies this year!
Anyway, we would like to congratulate Thao on the opening of her new business and wish her all the best! Thanks for booking us again!

Phing and Mark at Sheldon ReceptionsIt's been a while since we've had two weddings in one weekend! The first one was for Phing and Mark in the Delphinium Room at Sheldon Receptions with one lion. It was our first time in that room as we usually performed in the larger Bliss Room. The next one was held on Sunday night at Manor on High (our second time there) in Epping for Tracy and Jalil. The groom rode a rickshaw into the room with the Bride and flower girls in tow! It was certainly a fun wedding! Thank you again to both couples for booking us!

 We performed in front of over 200 Tupperware Representatives at the Tupperware Ovation Sales Night at the Manningham Function Centre. It was pure coincidence that the lion we brought to event matched the Tupperware colours. The reason for the lion dance? There was an incentive trip to Asia being announced that night! Thank you Chris for booking us!

A mid-week lion dance performance at the re-opening of the Westpac branch at QV was well attended by over 100 guests. There was very little room for our lion to perform. A string of firecrackers were lit at the conclusion of the performance to declare the branch opened. Thank you to the branch manager, Judy Tran for booking us! Congratulations!

 We had a blast on the weekend performing again at Crown Palladium. This is our fourth performance at Crown this year! It was great to see the Palladium covered with hanging lanterns and lots of beautiful Singapore orchids as table decorations. Three lions performed as the opening act for the KPMG annual ball attended by over 700 guests. Thank you to Marcus from By Design for booking us and organising meals for our members!

Another first for Hong De - a performance on a football oval! We were invited by The Werribee Football Club to perform during half-time for their Multicultural Day match against Western Bulldogs. We had a shortened training session and everyone hopped into three cars and off we went. The weather was not too great on the day but fined up when we were about to perform. Even though we were cold, the sun was out and the African dancers before us (bare-chested) did not complained about the weather! Thank you Chris for inviting us to perform at Avalon Oval!

We had a blast performing at Etihad Stadium on the weekend for the AFL Diversity Multicultural Round. Our lion roved around the Stadium as fans arrived for the match between Western Bulldogs and Essendon. There were food stalls and various other multicultural acts. Thank you to the Western Bulldogs for booking us and also getting tickets for us to watch the match afterwards. It was a perfect ending for the weekend!

 Our lions performed at the Crown Palladium Ballroom last Saturday night in front of 1500 guests for the Young Members Ball for Victorian Racing Club. We were also ask for a photo shoot at Flemington Racecourse the day before and the photo appeared in the Confidential section of the Herald Sun on Saturday. That night, we performed a most beautiful setting with white lanterns and blue lights. Our white and silver lions glowed under the lights. We would like to thank VRC for having us celebrate the Year of the Horse this year!

 We hosted a lion dance workshop for Ging Mo Academy from Perth on the weekend. Sifu Gawain Siu and his senior instructors were here in Melbourne for a Wushu competition and spent Saturday training with us. We met Sifu Gawain in Genting in 2008 and have kept in touch ever since. We spent the day training and in exchange the Ging Mo team showed us their Wushu competition routines. Both teams benefitted from the exchange. We wish them well in the Wushu competition. We would like to thank Sifu Gawain for the Acknowledgement Certificate for our Commitment, Generosity and Dedication to promoting Chinese Lion and Dragon Dancing in Australia. We hope to see them again in the near future. Thank you for visiting our Clubhouse.
