It was me who declared not to attend the wedding reception as the first person. Because my brother and I had ignored each other nearly two decades, and because I barely remember his face. Nevertheless, I went there because of my mother's strong persuade. The result was so cool and memorable, he and I finally said hello and congratulate each other, then the party started around noon.
Welcome drinks were available at the entrance, and I picked three glasses of sparkling wine to a quick drink. Generally, I introduce myself as a non-drinker since I recognize how much I drink, and trying to stay out of it. Well, that day, I needed to do it like unusual.
I can't remember the last time I wore such a good-for-the-society clothes :)
Showed up with the Japanese traditional clothes Kimono, my mother smiled on her face to see me. "I didn't expect you to come here." She said with a laughed. "Me neither." For many people, Kimono is too expensive to buy. Considering the fact that it often costs over US$10,000, most people don't afford to get their own one. So what my mother did? She rented from one of our relatives and that's how we do: There are things way above our budget, thus we share with it. And I like the idea that someone helps others whenever people suffer from something. That's my ideal.
The room was just breathtaking, you could see a Japanese Garden outside filled with cherry blossoms that are in full bloom, the red bridge across the tiny pond with the nice weather.
Well, I decided to drink a lot, therefore I ate a lot as well :) The food wasn't as good as I expected though, haha.
I ceased to count how many glasses of drinks I took after drinking 12 of them. Maybe 16, maybe more.
As a clerk in a shop, I had to admit their great service. They were so disciplined, honest, and do whatever before I asked something. Just amazing.
As the ceremony went on, someone started to play piano, someone was so drunk that sang loudly with the microphone. By the time they started doing it, I had already drunk and remember almost nothing.
The new husband and wife was born. Congratulation! :)
