My World Tuesday - Wedding Season


Since the 8th month of the Chinese lunar calendar (that begins on 19 Sept), there have been many weddings been held. The Chinese believes that it is auspicious to have weddings from the 8th - 12th month of the year. A friend of mine said he has to attend 7 weddings in Nov & Dec and that would burn a big hole in his pocket. During Chinese wedding reception, guests would be bringing ' angpow' (red packets contain money) as gifts to the wedding couple. The monetary gifts could help the couple to pay for the wedding reception. That's the pragmatic approach practised by the Chinese.

Today's posting is for That's My World Tuesday's participation. Please head there to find out what's happening in other part of the world.

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
