This is the foyer outside the reception room in the hotel:
One thing I have learnt about Taiwanese weddings is that it is ALL about the PHOTOS!
Yes, that is broccoli that one of my DS1's friends is holding - it is the guys' equivalent of catching the bridal bouquet (I never quite got to the bottom of the significance of it, though).
Now, I must tell you a funny story. When TraderVic and I first arrived in Taiwan, my DDIL's mother upon meeting TraderVic for the first time commented to her daughter that "He is a very handsome man", a compliment which TraderVic was happy to accept. Well, at the wedding, when we were doing the rounds of the tables with the happy couple, when we arrived at the table of my DDIL's young girlfriends (all in their mid-twenties). Each and everyone, took one look at TraderVic in his navy suit, called out 007 (the new James Bond movie had just come out in Taiwan) and each one had to have a photo taken with TraderVic and put it on their FB page - lol! Well, does TV have swelled head now! lol! Although you must admit he does scrub up well. Here he is, with me (on the right) and my DSister1.
... and, of course all about the FOOD! A thirteen course banquet!
Believe it or not, this dish below is Frog ovaries!
Well, that is all for now, this post has taken me a few days to write (I always find it takes ages to get the photos together), but I am eager to get it posted online.
Have a Happy Friday everyone,
