Art Appreciation and Wine Tasting
27.08.2004 + Empire Hotel

¡@

Those who did not attend the art appreciation and wine tasting event held at the Empire Hotel on 27th August 2004 had certainly missed an inspiring and fun event, which attracted 38 participants. Thanks to our executive committee member Suzanne Fung for organising the activity, and our guest speakers, Mr. Marco Szeto and Miss Linda Tsui, for their wonderful presentations.

To begin with, Marco shared with us how to understand and appreciate the structure and meanings of ancient Chinese mansions and gardens. Marco's acute observation and his interesting presentation aroused our interests and we all got a deeper understanding about Chinese art afterwards. Because of the time constraint, we needed to move on to the wine tasting session. However, we will definitely invite Marco to share more on this fascinating topic again in the near future.

 

After taking a brief time for snacks, our second speaker Linda Tsui guided us through a journey of wine tasting. How to taste wine? How to hold a wine glass? What does it mean by "dry", "unwooded" and "full-bodied"? Questions and answers continued one after another. Everyone enjoyed the wines amid a warm and high atmosphere.
