Traditional Taiwanese Wedding Banquet

The banquet was held at the home of the bride's parents. The tents were erected in the entrance way courtyard of the traditional "U" shaped home. The tables and chairs were rented from one company and the table clothes and chair covers from another. The caterers arrived at 6am to begin preparation for the banquet. I know this because Jane and I are staying in the house and had to leave earlier than usual. The food was extensive and quite good. Traditionally there are 10 to 12 courses with the final being ice cream. Tomorrow the bride and groom.

Face the Wall

A pair of lions were partially completed by a master carver and he was paid a small amount by the future owner. The owner's business failed so the master could not be paid to complete the lions. They were moved to this location when someone bought the property where the business was located. Some child asked one of the villagers if the lions were naughty and being punished by facing the wall. In fact unless in front of a temple, or business, lions are not allowed to face outward.
