Did you achieve what you have set out to do?
-Yes. From 11am to 2pm on September 4, 2022, there were 100+ people attended the Multicultural Gathering by the fountain at Queen Elizabeth Park. We enjoyed ourselves by singing, dancing, acting, poetry recitation, instruments playing, music band playing and more. It was near Middle Autumn Festival, everyone enjoyed moon cakes and oranges, symbolizing happy reunion.

Were there any surprises?
-Yes. It happened to rain very hard that day, but everyone was happy to stay in the rain and everyone enjoyed themselves in the heavy rain.
What did you learn from the process?
-Should have plan A and B for sunny weather and rainy weather although nobody seemed mind of bad weather.
-Neighbours and friends, total 100+ people.
