On Saturday, Kim’s Mom and Grandma threw us a really nice engagement party, in a traditional Chinese style. With mostly Kim’s extended family attending, my friends and I showed up, in pouring rain, bearing trays of foods and gifts. After the door was opened, Kim’s Mom asked me a few questions (Do I love Kim? Will I take care of her forever? ) and then allowed my friends (standing in for family), in the door. The platters of gifts were presented, and then special engagement candles were lit. Kim’s mom, then Kim and I, paid respects to our ancestors in the Buddhist tradition. I then gave her flowers and a very nice necklace. After that, there were lot’s of photos to take, then it was on to the food!
Food and then in the evening, the games came out. A very fun day!
