2016/02/21-27 新埔花燈

今年,我們正在慶祝猴年。

今年的新埔元宵節我們慶祝於 2016 年 02 月 21 日至 2016 年 02 月 27 日。這與去年相比,規模小了一點。 但仍然是一個美麗,快樂,喧鬧和人擁擠的慶祝活動。

2016 年 02 月 21 日(星期日)晚上:新埔元宵節正式開幕。下午我去參觀了會場。我拍未點亮花車的照片。然後在晚上,我邀請鈴木隆太先生, 來自名古屋的日本人和 AIESEC 國際志工會員,跟我一起去到新埔元宵節正式開幕。明華園戲劇總團公演,在台灣非常有名的台灣戲劇團, 應邀在夜間表演。我們逛一逛場地時順便拍現已點燃花車和美食廣場所提供的台灣美食的照片。鈴木隆太欣喜若狂,並很高興, 因為他真的很喜歡台灣的食物,特別是鵪鶉蛋。

2016 年 02 月 27 日(星期六)晚上:這是新埔元宵節的最後一天,並與元宵花車遊行慶祝。昨日(星期五),林韋每小姐,馬來西亞 AIESEC 國際志工會員,來到我們學校。所以,我也邀請她,她的兩個馬來西亞朋友和鈴木隆太先生去參加慶祝活動並觀看元宵花車遊行。

我們的學生被邀請幫忙推/拉在遊行中很重的燈籠花車。

每個人都有一個很高興的一天。

This year, we are celebrating the Year of the Monkey.

We celebrated this year's Hsinpu Lantern Festival on 2016/02/21 to 2016/02/27. This is a little smaller in scale compared to last year. But it is still a beautiful, happy, boisterous and crowded celebration.

2016/02/21 (Sunday) evening: The official opening of the Hsinpu Lantern Festival. I visited the venue in the afternoon. I took some pictures of the unlighted floats. Then in the evening, I invited Mr. Ryuta Suzuki, a Japanese from Nagoya, Japan and an AIESEC International Volunteer member, to come along with me to the official opening of the Hsinpu Lantern Festival. Ming Hwa Yuan Arts & Cultural Group, a very famous Taiwanese Opera group in Taiwan, was invited to perform during the night. As we went around the venue, I took pictures of the now lighted floats and the Taiwanese food being offered in the food court. Ryuta Suzuki was ecstatic and delighted as he really enjoyed the Taiwanese food, especially the quail's eggs.

2016/02/27 (Saturday) evening: This marks the last day of the Hsinpu Lantern Festival and celebrated with the Lantern Float Parade. Yesterday (Friday), Miss Ling Hwei May, a Malaysian AIESEC International Volunteer member, arrived in our school. So I also invited her and her 2 Malaysian friends along with Mr. Ryuta Suzuki to join in the celebration and to watch the Lantern Float parade.

Our students were invited to help in the pushing/pulling of the heavy lantern floats during the parade.

Everybody had a great day.
