Participants getting ready for the eating competition

At the Lunar New Year Festival Huong Xua Vietnamese Restaurant Canley Heights organised their annual Rice Eating Competition Festival to raise funds to help build a school canteen for Pal Buddhist High School. This fundraising was also supplemented by sponsorships, raffle tickets and calls for donations in the community. There were several prizes for who could be the first to finish meals prepared by Huong Xua.

The winner was Chris Do who had been training for 6 months! He won first prize of $1000 having completed the challenge in 3 minutes and 59 seconds!
