One of the big reasons I’m behind on life is because I flew back home last week to attend my sister’s engagement ceremony. For those non-Vietnamese out there it’s a tradition that involves lots of praying, food, and bowing. Check out Wikipedia for more details.
So I flew back home and spent the weekend with my family. It’s as stressful as it sounds. I did have a chance to catch up with a few of my favorites back home, but it was mostly all family last weekend.
I’ve been to a few ceremonies so I knew what was going down, however I was surprised how crazy the preparations were leading up to it. It feels bigger than the wedding sometimes. The guest list was very interesting, my mom invited almost everyone she knew including the family dentist.
It was also so weird to hear my Dad, who never speaks ever, address an entire crowd of people in a second language.
All in all it was a great weekend with family and while I was glad I was separated from all the stress of putting it on, I was told I might have to do the same thing when I get married.
Maybe it’s a good thing I’m single and lonely after all.
