We went to one of IDs engagement party this afternoon in Flynn. There were so many people up there and some of them were people whom we went to the China tournament with early of this June. So when I got in, I heard some people yelling my name with kind of surprise tone and got big kisses from all the people who I knew before, which was kind of nice.
Well, many of people whom we went to China tried to recruit me to ID club at that time, but since I came back, I had never showed up myself in any of IDs event . So this sort of topic is still going on today Then I heard lots of good feedback about their great shopping experience in Hong Kong. A girl ran out the money, and the time…and she shopped until the last minute till they caught the plane. It sounded really funny when she said she had to rush back to hotel to get a shower quickly, but I absolute understand how she meant about Hong Kong. We certainly had a ball ourselves when we were up there.
Then the rest of time? It was pretty much like grabbing whoever people then just talk, talk and talk…until you get sick of talking. I always find it very funny about people bringing their own drinks to party in the western party culture, like our coach and ex-president, both Misters kept their own BYO drinks in their coolers, which you won’t see in China. Everything in a party in China would be on the house host, but here, people are just so comfortable to bring their own, which I think a truly great idea.
Normally I would hate to go to a too big party in Australia, as I am not a person who likes or needs to socialised with many strangers to maintain my friendship network. Both my husband and I are very self-content people and very busy with our own lives and doing our own stuff (believe it or not, I don’t think I can even find enough time for my own interests to be carried out). So in terms of social activities, we are extremely comfortable with being alone, but would get very annoyed with too much social things going on in our lives. We have been very picky about making friends and putting our time effort to participate in activities (IDs Club just has been having too many things). We only go to certain people’s big party or would rather have a small meeting-up than a big one.
To us, this party was the one we wanted to be to join the celebration with other people. Jazz and Paul are both very nice people. We sincerely are glad to see the relationship all work out and got to current stage. The bride and groom to be’s house is massive. The food was very nice and well presented. The speeches from both parents side was very impressive.
When the groom to be said very vaguely about he is expecting to spend many…many…many…many (note: the sound is fading away……) years with the bride to be, our Jazz called out loudly and very impatiently “for the rest of life”. I think this is the moment that is supposed to be. The life is all about expectations. Whether your will get a happy ending or a sad ending, it all depends if your expectations are to be met.
