A Chinese Wedding Experience

24 December 2006 18:00

Today, I came one step closer to being aType 2 Chinese when I became part of my colleague's "hing tai" (brothers) at his wedding. I also got a firsthand experience of Fear Factor - Chinese Wedding style, thanks to the antics of the bride's "chi mui" (sisters) when we were trying to get through to the bride. My tastebuds got all funny after consuming a freakingly hot bun laced with wasabi-like sambal and washing it down with a glass of bitter herbal drink typically found at those sinseh shops. Needless to say, for a couple of hours today, I developed a newfound appreciation for the programs on Astro Wah Lai Toi. That all got neutralized however, when our table was graciously served with briyani during the reception dinner instead of the standard issue 8 course meal for fear that the 5 of us Malays may accidentally ingest non-halal food. If anything else, this whole experience has has made me ready for that long term relationship with a member of the opposite sex that is not from the same bloodline. Kinda handy too with the new year looming already.

Now, if only I'd take care about the lighting in my house that is currently 100% generated by fluorescent lights (I exceed certain specifications of a Type 2 Chinese even). Perhaps that may be the affliction that's preventing me from scoring a breakthrough. Let me confirm that withLilian Too.
