What is “sugar painting”?

Sugar painting (糖画 – TangHua) is a traditional Chinese form of folk art using hot, liquid sugar to create two dimensional figures. This snack is popular among children. Selecting a figure is normally determined by spinning the arrow on a wheel – Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sugar_painting)

親愛的堪城華人同胞華協會員:

徐前會長國泉女士在三月二十九日清晨病逝,徐前會長生前熱心公益,為華人社團供獻心力,執牛耳於會計界餐館界,尤為人稱道的其縱橫才氣,英文流利為早期新移民解難釋疑,更有甚者,粵語,上海話,四川話皆十分地道,為各地到堪城立業的餐廳鄉親提供了親切的管道得以在堪城安身立命,如今斯人驟然離去,音容笑貌歷歷宛在,實不甚唏嘘,令人痛心疾首。

喪禮訂在四月六日十點到十二點在 Johnson County Funeral Chapel and Memorial Gardens (11200 Metcalf Avenue, Overland Park, KS 66210). 一點半到三點家屬在其生前開創的日本餐廳 Edokku 備有餐點以饗弔客親友.

特此敬聞
