First, we had the piano four-hands performance given by Bobo and Grace. Then CKYC chamber choir brought us a wonderful melody, Piu non si trovano. We were intoxicated in the fascinating classical music. After that the newly-founded Chinese dance team of CKYC performed the Jing Hong Dance, which originates from Tang Dynasty; it left us a deep impression. And what cheered us most was the K-POP dancing performed by CKYC cheer leading team.

At the end of the dinner, everyone joined in the group photo, drawing a successful close to the vibrant night, a night that left the CKYC resident an unforgettable experience. As an MC of the CKYC High Table Dinner this time, I witnessed the hard work of the staffs, the wonderful speeches and performances and the high enthusiasm of the students. It was not only a dinner, but also a chance to learn more about the world by listening to the speeches given by the guests, making new friends and enjoying the college life. And that’s actually the meaning of the High Table Dinner.
