Throwback Christmas because it’s impossible for all of us to get together nowadays. Happy holidays from my family to yours. #happyholidays #merrychristmas #throwback #family #christmas #11yearsago #wowwewereskinny
So next came the reception. Which would have been fine. Only, we were moved to the groom’s table at the platform. Awkward. I was like:

Obviously, no help. At least there was food. But since this was a traditional Chinese wedding, the bride changed her dress. It’s supposed to happen three times - this girl did it five. And we had to introduce ourselves as the groom’s family. Fun times. By the end of the night, I was like:
Needless to say, I will most likely be eloping. The end.
I was invited to a cousin’s wedding on Saturday. A cousin whom I barely know - I don’t think he even knows my name. Fun times. But family duties > comfort level. So of course my family was 15 minutes late to the ceremony. I was just like:
