We were invited to a very special wedding last weekend. Winny, who works with Chris, was marrying Brad, a young american businessman. They hosted their event at the historic Waldorf Astoria on the Bund. The theme of the wedding was East meets West. They had an American singer perform as well as two female Chinese singers. The hotel was old and beautiful. We felt very privileged to be included.

The reception dinner was very grand and delicious. A traditional Chinese wedding banquet is multi-course, and very elaborate. The tables were set with American red wine, and bottles of Chinese dark wine - as well as cigarettes and party favors. Wow!
