October 1 is China’s national day. Any excuse to eat Chinese food is a good one. Hop into a dim sum restaurant in any Chinatown. One dish of dim sum pastries is cheap.

The October 1 and 2 Festival of South Asian Literature and the Arts is free. It sounds interesting with readings, dance, music and seminars. It’s at the downtown U of T campus.

The World’s Biggest Bookstore on Saturday has a Japanese Reiki demo. It’s about Japanese healing. On both days, Paws Way at Harbourfront will be showing some breeds of cats from abroad. Not all cats look like Toronto cats. Here’s a chance to find out about some exotic varieties and how they differ from Toronto cats.

I’m aiming also for the Matzoh Ball-Making Competition at Caplansky’s Deli on College Saturday afternoon. On Sunday, there’s the High Park Harvest Festival, a Toronto tradition.
