Asian weddings are very strange places. There is a lot of hugging/ talking with people that all seem to know you yet you have no idea who they are. Luckily I can just call everyone aunty and uncle and its all fine so it doesn’t matter if I don’t know their name :p  Almost every conversation will consist of the following three things

  • You’re so tall! ( I’m really not,  I’m like 5”3 and a bit)/ You’ve lost a lot of weight/ you’re looking very pretty
  • What are you studying? Oh medicine! Thats brilliant- you can look after us in our old age
  • You know the time is coming for us to start looking for a suitable boy for you (uhh really I’m fine- honestly)

I’m never sure whether the last one is meant as a joke or not…
