Of Chinese Wedding Dinners And The Boringness
*this post is merely the blogger's own opinion and if you don't like, then your problem lor :P

Hubby and I attended a wedding dinner last night, and as usual dinner started over an hour late. Seriously, why can't people just be on time? If the card says dinner starts at 7pm, get your fucking asses into the car and reach the venue by 7pm lah.

I think it's preposterous for people to arrive at the venue late, and simply assume that all dinners would start late. I think that it's a very very very bad habit that has been cultivated over the many many many years of such auspicious events. And people just don't bother to change their habits. After all, as the saying goes, old habits die hard. Especially more so for typical Chinese wedding dinners. Us Chinese folks have a fucking lot to learn.

I've always made it a point to reach early to a wedding dinner, Chinese or otherwise. It's called having manners and respect. For those of you that think it's ok to arrive late and assume that all wedding dinners start late anyway, well fuck you and your selfish manners :P

In a typical Chinese wedding dinner, there will always be the first dish march-in. You know, a line of servers holding up the first dish of the night (usually the Hot & Cold combination), parading it around, and then bowing their heads to the people seated at the bridal table, and then only serving the other tables. Let's not forget the music that accompanies the first dish.

I've lost count of the number of times restaurants play "Final Countdown" and Kitaro already :PpPpP Seriously, time to get updated with the gig, people. It's B-O-R-I-N-G to see such presentation these days. People are already starving their balls off, and yet have to endure the wait even longer just to see the food zipping by you. Like skip the music and parading and just serve the freaking food LOL!!!

Chinese wedding dinners should really be updated. The present style is so dull and predictable. Sien lan dou ah~
