Culture Shock

Its nice to be out of your element once in a while. I had the pleasure of going to Toms cousins Vietnamese wedding. It was in Little Saigon in Westminster. There were so many people there. I met a lot of Toms family on his moms side. Everyone was very friendly, we all drank lots of wine. The bride looked beautiful, and the entainment, was, ummm, well entertaining. Supposedly, one of the singers is very famous in Vietnam. I took a picture, but due to my excessive alcohol intake, its a tad blurry. I didnt want to insult anyone, so I ate the Jellyfish, and the "thousand year old egg" and the fried scallops and everything else slimy that comes from the ocean. I cant stand slimy textures, so I was forced to down it with tons of red wine. After we left I was happy I went. I would love to take the kids next time to something like this to allow them to see other cultures, and to see where Tom comes from.

Wish I could have been there!

So? Do you always get drunk before you take pictures at weddings???

Now that I look back, I got tanked right before both of mine, and I have one coming up in Sept, and I may just feel nervous and out of place and may need to drink a few glasses of wine before I go. I'll take pics and u can tell me how they look. I'll give you the first peek.

Sounds like a good plan.

You are very beautiful Steph and boy do I ever give you credit for getting the slimy food down.

Cheers to all cultures.
