Last weekend we went to my daughter-in-law's brother's wedding. And the Chinese certainly do it in style.  The wedding lasted from the Friday to the Sunday with an English church ceremony and reception (roast beef and yorkshire pudds the size of footballs) followed by a traditional Chinese reception - abalone, ducks' feet, lobster, turbot, jellyfish, shark fin soup, red bean sweet soup, sticky rice and scallops. The jelly fish and the ducks' feet defeated me but the rest was divine. We had firecrackers and dragons with the loudest drums I've ever heard - and baby Oscar (not born yet!) must have wondered what on earth was happening.



We also had a second wedding cake to enjoy.
