As the host gave the order, the zongzi wrapping race kicked off. According to different nationalities, contestants were divided into eight groups under the guidance of volunteers from community residents. “Every step has a knack, including choosing wrapping materials-reed leaves, filling the rice and shaping up, ” one volunteer said. With the step-by-step guild of community residents, the foreign “students” imitated what their “teachers” did.

The patient Tang Bizhu from Indonesia said, “The activity is very interesting. In Indonesia, we would make many zongzis attached by a rope. In the past, we wrapped up zongzi at home, but now we can celebrate the traditional festival with so many friends in China. Therefore, I feel very happy.”

Miss Ellie, from Philippines, is very skillful in making zongzi. But she said that was the first time she wrapped up zongzi. Besides, she mentioned that in the past, she bought zongzi. Therefore, she felt very happy to make zongzi by herself this time. She said, “These zongzis seem delicious. And in Philippines, we have other stuffings of zongzi, such as chicken. This activity is so wonderful and I am so happy that I totally forget I am a cancer patient.”

After the race, according to the standard of “quantity, speed, quality and aesthetics”, the first prize, the second prize and the third prize were selected. One of the award-winning patients said, “the service of Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou is very attentive. This event is so great, which is oriented to patients. I like such event so much and I feel very happy for participating in it.” And then, the patients from Indonesia and Vietnam and the interpreters of Modern Cancer Hospital Guangzhou sang Indonesian and Vietnam songs together, which symbolized the friendship between Chinese and foreigners. Besides, the songs pushed the event to a climax. When the famous song in Vietnam rang, there were sincere smiles on the faces of the patients from Vietnam and their families. At that time, all of them deeply felt the warmth to receive treatment in China.

In the afternoon, the medical staff gave patients the zongzis that they made by themselves.
