It has been quite some time since I last put up a post a here. That was because I had been busy reading your blogs (including those who post a comment for me to trace back). See I have been wondering about at your blogs, as an invisible, silent reader, can you see me? Go check your visitors list, definitely you can catch me there reading without permission. What am I talking about! You are there to share Right? No need permission right? The more the merrier right? I always think like that, that's why I always enter like a snobbish VVIP, come and go without even saying "Hello".
Went for a wedding dinner last night. I was seated with my children and the rest were strangers. My friend is the family members, so she and the husband, although requested to be seated with us, has to go and sit at the VIP table.
What to do with those strangers? Food were more important, I thought? But still I cannot be acting snobbish like I acted in your blog as an invisible blog guest, right? So I said 'hi hello!', 'hello!, 'hello!" to all the couples at my table and shake hands to all of them including an overly-friendly cute little girl.
Next time, if I know the arrangement is going to be like that, I will not attend, even if you force me, threaten me, pull or push me or boycott me..... I've got my excuses prepared for the next invitation.
But then friendship is more important, right? Ya, awkwardness is secondary, friendship should come first, so don't worry, whoever you are I will definitely attend your dinner and make friends with the strangers after all they are either your collegues or relatives, right?
I really enjoyed the foods last night. They served the usual Chinese dishes like :
1. Special Hot & Cold Platter
2. Braised Sharks Fin Soup with Crab Roe, Cab Meat & Surimi
3. Roasted Suckling Pig Hong Kong Style
4. Ying Yang Star Garoupa
5. Poached Live Tiger Prawns
6. Braised Dried Oyster with Bean curd Skin & Vegetable
7. Steamed Glutinous Rice Hong Hong Style
8. Chilled Snow Pear with Sea-Coconut
9. Chinese Pastries Two Variety
I had 2 glasses of wine and now only I remembered the foot-reflexologist's advice, no more liquor hah! And I ate 5 big Tiger Prawns which I am not supposed to eat ORSO!
This morning my breakfast was - A glass of warm water with 3 table spoons of Apple Cider Vinegar and 1 tablespoon of Manuka Honey. After an hour, 2 pieces of bread with 1/2 a cup of coffee and an apple. This afternoon, my lunch will be stir fried vegetable with garlic and steam fish with toufu.
Hopefully all the cholesterol piled up last night will be reduced to the minimum.
