:: Restaurant Kam Fung ::

  • Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people
    are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home;
    that wildness is a necessity;
    and that mountain parks and reservations
    are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigation rivers,
    but as fountains of life.
    — John Muir

    Today was a very good day as it started early and had many exciting experiences. First, about 12 Urban Sketchers of Montreal met at la Maison Kam Fung in the Chinese sector of Montreal to have a Chinese Brunch and sketch together. The food was very good and the fellowship with other sketchers was very enjoyable. Then I had to leave as I had a ticket to see the Vincent Van Gogh “A New Way of Seeing”  film at the Kirkland Cineplex. It brought tears to my eyes… his life story is unique and sad too and the quality of the filming, in high definition, is something to see. The next film will be on May 28th on the Impressionists.

    Aujourd’hui a été une journée assez productive et intéressante où je me suis joint à environ 12 autres Urban Sketchers de Montréal pour dessiner en brunchant à la Maison Kam Fung dans le quartier chinois de Montréal. La bouffe film sur Van Gogh intitulé “A New Way of Seeing” au Cinéplex de Kirkland. Sa vie a été tellement triste que j’ai été remplie d’émotions! Le prochain film est le 28 mai sur les Impressionistes
