Ryan from West Chester sent us this note after he attended one of Chef Poon’s CNY events:

“The weather was cooperative, the festival was entertaining, and the food was spectacular. But Chef Joe’s affability and earnest engagement of the patrons stole the show.  Of course from my perspective, and the perspective  of my date, the opportunity to spend some moments with Chef Joe simply in his element out and about in Chinatown, treating us both as if we were age old friends despite the fact that we proved relative strangers, served as the most superlative facet of the event.  The experience reinforced the premise of which we were both already aware, that Chef Joseph Poon serves as not only a credit to the culinary community and Chinatown particularly, but more broadly as an irreplaceable asset and cultural ambassador to the city itself.”      

Thanks, Ryan.  We agree!

Year of the MONKEY-2016

People born in the year of the monkey are of great intellects and skillful. They are usually good leaders. Quick and intelligent as they are, they can win prizes frequently from childhood, thus, often appreciated by parents and teachers. Besides, they are most in good physical conditions. Not only good in fortune when they are young, but also perfect after middle ages. As they are good at saving up money, they usually live lives without worrying about food and clothing.

The people under the sign of the monkey are sometimes a bit quick-tempered. This may hinder them from getting success. So, they should learn to be patient to overcome. They also like to project themselves to attract others. As they have extraordinary ability to distinguish between things, they can always make good decisions. In their families, they are usually considerate and thoughtful. Monkey Years: 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028
