As many of you already know, Ah In will be in New York next month~ Few haveners and I have been tossing different ideas for a project for Haven recently~ We finally decided to call this project our “Snack Project”~
Update: As of today, 1/25/2012, we already have 100 haveners who participated in the project and raised more than our target amount. Since Tiny nim is not back to US yet, these figures do not include the ones who donated directly through paypal on Haven’s website. I am very grateful for everyone who has been in great support of this project! Since we have enough funds, besides the ‘menu’ we had from before, I am planning to add some more buns if I can find a good bakery nearby. In addition, I will also send lovely edible arrangements for both Ah In and his manager. When deliver the snack, hopefully, with the help of our Haven’s artist team, we can also prepare a nice poster with all the participants’ names and present that to Ah In. Instead of getting Ah In gifts, any extra amount that after all the snack project cost being deducted will be donated to charity under Ah In’s name which will make this project much more meaningful~ Thanks again for all the support!!
Project: Yoo Ah In New York Snack Project
Project Leader: mathed
Closing Date/Last Day to Receive Fund: Jan. 31, 2012 (tentative)
Donation Taret: $350
What is a “Snack Project” you may ask… Since Ah In will be in New York for the filming of ‘Fashion King,’ it will be a great opportunity for us to show our support for Ah In and his new drama by sending the whole filming crew snacks and drinks~ All the contributors names and countries will be listed in the card that will be given to Ah In~^ ^~
After gathering information and discussions, here is the proposed menu for this project~
Drink: Bubble Tea (珍珠奶茶)
Snacks: Fried Chicken nuggets (鹽酥雞), Fried Squid Balls (花枝丸), Fried Fishcakes (甜不辣), Fried Pork Blood Rice (紫米糕)
Dessert: Small Cream Cakes (奶油餅)
[Note: Fried Pork Blood Rice is not really made with pork blood anymore. It's actually a vegetarian dish that uses purple rice to make it. Also, the small cream cake is like 大判焼き but not with the red bean filling. Instead, it's with cream filling.]
