Saturday, January 10, 2010 ~ TOPS Chinese Buffet
We had a lovely lunch at the Chinese Buffet. Unfortunatly, I forgot to take any pictures. Great way to start the new year. At the lunch was Boe, Darlene, Kathe, Phyllis Rose, Betty and Priscilla.
This wasn't really the buffet, but you know they are pretty much the same. YUM!!
Chinese New Year ~ Spa Day ~ Saturday, February 13, 2010
We spent our morning at Raphael's School of Beauty where we had facials, massages, pedicures and manicures. The first appointments were at 9:15 and everyone was finished before 1pm.
Darlene is enjoying her pedicure after she had her Vitamin C facial.
Here is Phyllis Rose getting a manicure. Her polish matched her shirt.
Boe had a facial and then had a shampoo and set and a manicure. She looks great.
After all the spa treatments, we headed up to Sunshine Buffet, in Niles, OH on 422. They were celebrating Chinese New Year. Here is Reba, Kathe & Grace. Notice the tray on the table. Mary brought chocolate covered strawberries that she made and cream puffs. Boy were they good. She also brought the pink roses for the table and then sent one rose home with each of us.
Here is Betty, Darlene & Boe. We were just chatting and hadn't started to eat, except the chocolate covered strawberries. Who could resist them? LOL
At 1:30 the Lion Dance started with some firecrackers and then a man had like a gong type thing that he played for the Lion to dance to. It started out in the lobby and made it's way around the whole restaurant
Here the lion is coming up near us. Lion dance is a form of traditional dance in Chinese culture, in which performers mimic a lion's movements in a lion costume. The lion is often, and wrongly, mistaken as dragon. An easy way to tell the difference is that a lion is operated by two people, while a dragon needs many people. Also, in a lion dance, the performers' faces are covered, since they are inside of the lion. In a dragon dance, the performers can be seen since the dragon is held upon poles. Basic lion dance fundamental movements can be found in most Chinese martial arts.
When the Lion got near Reba, he thought she looked good enough to take a bite of.
Here the lion was eatting from a bucket on the floor. When he stood back up the spit out candies and cookies on the tables.
Here you can see the man who was playing the gong.
Before we left we had a group picture taken. I think we all had a good day. And a good meal at Sunshine Buffet.
2011 was a bad year so very few pictures got taken
