had to go to part 2 of my volunteer work yesterday which was AWESOME! i don’t know if you guys remember…but a couple of weeks ago my girlfriend and i volunteered to take care of a bunch of underprivileged children…these kids were from different backgrounds – but mainly chinese. but my girlfriend and i were placed in charge of a group of southasia kids from Nepal, Pakistan and India…SUPER cute kids!!! the Nepalese kids were so cute!!! with perfect english (of course with a bit of an accent) and can speak Hindhi (the main Indian language) and so can understand Urdu (that is the main Pakistani language that i speak as well)…they also can speak Cantonese!!! its crazy!!! south asians in HK are huge assets to our society yet are totally overlooked – these children were total proof of this cities ignorance. anyway – yesterday we had a special “easter buffet” for them which was a lot of fun…a lot of the kids couldn’t eat everything on the menu because the organizers forgot to check to see if certain kids couldn’t eat pork or meat due to religious reasons. once again, the organizers spoke only in cantonese ignoring this group of kids for some of whom chinese is still very new…poor kids – so my girlfriend and i just translated everything and did our own thing…after that it was one-on-one time with my girlfriend because i NEVER get to hang out with her…now that i’ve started my master’s degree its going to be even more impossible…we hung out at cultural center where weird but SUPER SUPER cool things were going on…when we first got there there was a musician banging away on a tin board! it was crazy! but it sounded SOOOOOOOOOO good! and all these people were gathered around him while he was playing it and clapped when he was done…then we walked a little bit further up and there were a group of kids practicing their breakdance moves having an awesome time…then in front of them there was one guy playing the saxophone! WHAT?! so weird! but he was SOOOOOOOOOOO into playing it! he had his eyes closed and was dancing away…amazing…then a little bit further up was the coolest thing – there was a small group of elderly singing old Chinese folk songs!!! SOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!! the main singer had such a great voice and he was accompanied by an Er Hu, guitar, tamborine and two dancers…there was a small group of people watching them and listening…then they played an old folk song that everyone around them knew – even my girlfriend started singing!
