The Story Behind Gung Haggis Fat Choy

Gung Haggis Fat Choy! Huh?! In 2007 Bill McFadden, President of the Caledonian & St. Andrew's Society, introducedTodd Wong's trademarked production of "Gung Haggis Fat Choy" to Seattle. Billed as "A Celebration of Chinese New Year and Robert Burns' Dinner", the laughter-filled evening included haggis, a delicious Chinese dinner, Pipes & Drums (traditional and fusion style), sing-alongs (including "When Asian/Scottish Eyes are Smiling" and "My Haggis/Chow Mein Lies Over the Ocean"), Poems, The Address tae the Haggis (delivered in rap to an enthusiastic and responsive crowd) and Auld Lang Syne sung in both Mandarin Chinese and English.

By February 15th, 2009 Bill had worked out the kinks, made improvements, and Gung Haggis Fat Choy III was a great success. We celebrated t
he 250th Birthday of Robert Burns and Chinese Lunar New Year Year of the Ox with an 8 Course Chinese Dinner, Haggis, Raffle/Door Prize, and musical entertainment featuring: Emcee "Toddish McWong" and his inimitable "Address tae the Haggis Rap", "Red" McWilliams, Sifu David F. Leong's Belltown Martial Arts, Kenmore & District Pipe Band, Karen Shelton Highland Dancers - Karen Shelton, Director, Melody Dance Group - Melody Xie, Director, Pipers Don Scobie and Joe McDonald, Asian Youth Orchestra - Warren Chang, Director
