Hello my lovely bloggers,
Well, TraderVic and I are back safe and sound from a wonderful adventure overseas... and it was indeed an adventure!
A Taiwanese wedding, a magical lake and being chauffeured around Taipei by a billionaire - and that was just the first week!
So, if you would like to read more about it, stay tuned over the next few weeks, while I catch you up on all my travel (and stitching) news - of course, if you follow me on FB, then you will have seen most of these pics (sorry!)
Let's begin with the wedding in Kaohsiung- the whole raison d'etre for the trip, really. Just to remind you, our DS1 married his lovely bride here in Melbourne, nearly a year ago now, you can revisit that post, here, if you wish. However, DDIL1 is a gorgeous Taiwanese girl, who wanted to have the Taiwanese wedding experience with her family and friends as well - and what an experience it is: 12 hour wedding photo shoot for the bride and groom (pre-wedding) involving at least five changes of outfits (for both bride and groom) and different hairstyles (for the bride); a tea ceremony the day before when the groom needs to perform a number of tasks to win the hand of his bride and then a full on 13 course wedding feast the following day at which the bride wore three different gowns and then after all that we went to Karaoke! Wow! What a couple of days!
Today, I am going to show you some of the wedding shoot photos - they are quite stunning!
Anyway, I am going to leave you here for now, watch this space for further updates on our trip.
- My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.
