Yesterday evening, my family (sans sister) attended a wedding dinner held at Grand Park City Hall in Coleman Street. Had no idea that there is such a grand little hotel behind Peninsula Plaza!
Anyway, the groom is 36 and my dad is 24 years older than him! In comparison, my oldest first cousin (on my paternal side; my maternal first cousins are all around my age or slightly younger) is 19 years older than me.
The food was actually pretty good! There were eight courses. I enjoyed the ‘Stir Fried Scallops, Fresh Mushroom and Broccoli with XO Sauce’ and ‘Wasabi Prawn with Raisin & Strawberry’ the most! The final course, dessert, was ‘Yam Paste with Gingko Nuts and Pumpkins’ (aka orh nee), which I usually dislike, but found quite delicious this time. (Alas, no photos, cos I was too lazy to take! :P)
And one of the aunties (my dad’s cousin really) asked if I was still in JC (ie, 17 or 18!), and added that she thought I looked no older than 20 or 21!!!!!! (My mum very amusedly informed her that I was already 25……) :D :D :D
