International Education Week @ UMDThis week is International Education Week (IEW) from November 12 to November 17. IEW is a celebration of international education and exchange. During this week schools and other organizations celebrate cultural exchange and education in different ways. For example, they have International Dinner on Monday, International Experience & Your Career on Wednesday, and Cultural Fair on Friday.
MEI students contribute to the diversity of their country. Today, we have a successful exhibit for this event. Our group prepares a lot of snack and Chinese food for this fair. In our group, we work together on a project but doing different things. Jimmy and Cindy make a snake – Mua Chee. Mua Chee is a sticky rice cakes and a specialty of Hualien, Taiwan. Cindy’s speaker partner, Tiffany, who is American-Taiwan, gives us a great favor. She gives us the materials to make pearl milk tea (Bubble Tea). Candy brings some Chinese Tie. The Chinese Tie is a symbol with luck and propitious. Most Chinese families put Chinese Tie in their house. Even seem a little bit of superstition. Of course, my husband give me a hand, he prepares Rice Noodles for this fair. The snake and food go over very well.
