Curious about what indian parties for anniversaries might be like, I decided to go along with Max also lah... Learnt a few things about indian culture tat day lor:)
Firstly.. if you are invited to a party.. always arrive 2 hours after the time stated on the invitation card.
The invite card said starts at 7pm... knowing that they will surely be late, we decided to also be late lah.. so we arrive at around 7.40pm... but surprise surprise! We are STILL TOO EARLY and are THE EARLIEST TO ARRIVE! ALready try very hard to be late lor!!!
Next hour also NO SOUND AND NO COLOUR..
Finally at 9pm.. people start sprinkling in... and at 9.30... most people arrive... some arrive with flowers and some with gifts. In this case, cost is apparently not the main issue.. unlike in sgp.. we try to give market rate or cover their cost of the party.. the gift is really about your kind thoughts and blessings here...
Secondly, EAT TILL FULL FULL THEN GO PARTY!:) wahahaha.. cos at 10pm.. the party finally started... and everyone in the family started to take turn to give speeches.. and it was of course romantic and all tat :) The son was sniffing away in tears as he read his letter to his parents.. so touching:) I wonder if Ace will be like tat at OUR 25th anniversary party.. (but then again, we are such lazy people.. probably NO PARTY.. whahahaha)
By the time they finished the speeches, we thought serving food.. BUT no food yet!
They started doing this thing called the marchin.. it is everyone forming a line to go one big round in the room with the people at the start pausing and holding their hands up high to let the rest of the people walk through.. then second pair do the same.. etc... It was quite a nice thing to do...
And then some guy who took part in arab idol performed... and his voice was fantastic!
WHen tat was over, they started to play games!!!
I told him as a judge we have to be fair.. cannot choose him because he is our son... hahahaha
I think it also shows that you can be a leader as long as you be yourself, be confident and exude charissma.. people naturally want to follow you without you needing to say ANYTHING:) wahahahah...
But hor thinking back.. perhaps Ace also hor very used to leading dance when he was in my tummy :) wahahahhahaha :) ( R&Y will remember BSTC!) wahaha...
We opened it later in the car and found out later it was a serving dish.. "Haiya, I dance so hard for nothing.." he said. But Max reminded him that he was dancing because he enjoyed it and not because it will win him a prize:)
By that time, Ace already got very hungry and became full liao.. so he ate very little.. me and max ate a little and then we finally reached home at 1am...
On a side note, Ace asked me a few days later why adults dun seem to know how they dance... all adults do when they dance is to do this... *imitates people just bobbing around*... "Why they dun know how to dance properly.. this is called dancing meh??" Wahaahahahah... I dunno how to tell him not every one siao kiah like him and dance until forget himself on dance floor.. and not everyone is confident on the dance floor.. not everyone dun care what others think of them too :) hahah..
PS: A few days later, we recieved an email from one of Max's colleagues:
Dear Max and Angel,
You’ll are blessed to have such a sweet and talented Son. He is a Superstar….he is a great dancer…..and I lost a few pounds dancing with him.
He really makes you’ll proud parents.
GOD Bless HIM.
Looks like Ace is a hit amongst the jie jies:) wahahaha:)
