One of countless reasons I love Canada: Gung Haggis Fat Choy!

‘Gung Haggis Fat Choy was created in 1993 when a Simon Fraser University student Todd Wong was asked to help out with the University’s annual Robbie Burns Day celebrations. Wong, a fifth generation Canadian, quickly learned about Scottish-Canadian culture with its traditions of men wearing kilts, carrying swords, playing bagpipes and cuisine. That year, Chinese Lunar New Year fell two days later, on January 27. Realizing that he could combine the two events, he coined the phrase and created the “Toddish McWong” persona. In 1998, Wong hosted the first Gung Haggis Fat Choy Rabbie Burns Chinese New Year Dinner.’
