The Chinese New Year dinner was held at the Zen Market Restaurant, this is located in the exclusive Bernabeu Stadium. Wine, exotic food, and football background were an astounding blend for a Friday night. There was not a better occasion like this one to taste the delicious food prepared specially for us IE students. In addition, we arranged surprise gifts for the lucky few who attended this dinner. Every attendee received a gift, a woman bag, Huawei smartphone and Las Rozas Village discount tickets were some of the notable gifts.
The event was a big hit; before announcing this event officially, all the tickets were already previously booked by the students who knew of this event’s existence. As a representative of the China club, we want to thank the students who spent that special day with us. I hope that night will remain as an affectionate memory in the many students who were unable to spend the night with their families, a memory with the IE community at its heart.
We finished the night with a lottery to choose the owners of the different presents, you could hear someone attempting to say “Happy New Year” in Chinese mixed with their own accent and people discovering the wonders of the food served, in addition to the football fans admiring the stadium. We are overjoyed and content that the students who attended this event had a great time.
