S's social, Chinese New Year January 2001

Rather foolishly I forgot to take my camera to this event. This was a shame as there was a lot of potential photographs about. We met up at De Hem's the only Dutch pub in London just north of China Town. I could see a number of brightly coloured dragons on display, but as you might expect I took a direct line to the pub from the tube. When I got there the pub was full due to a quite proficient Jazz band playing. However with some skillfull weaving I managed to make my way safely to the bar.Sejal was there of course and we had a few drinks and a chat as we wiated for the others to arrive. This took a little while as the event was fully booked, and our prescence filled the pub even more. Off then to the Chinese restaurant and an excellent meal. We had the floor of the restaurant almost to ourselves being such a large group, and I certainly enjoyed the set menu S selected. Their was plenty of choice and plenty of practice for my Chopstick technique.
