This past Saturday Cindy, one of our secretaries, got married. We were all invited to the wedding (which is more like a reception/party/8-course dinner), and Jenny, Kendra, and I were able to go. We met up with the other secretaries, and really had a fantastic time. The Taiwanese really know how to celebrate such a happy, momentous occasion! And the bride and groom's wedding photos were phenomenal! Guys, if I ever manage to get married, I want to have all of my pictures taken in Taiwan. And maybe even have a wedding party in Taiwan. (Let's not think about the logistics of this.) It was really just incredible.

Unfortunately, this cuts off right before the pyrotechnics started up. Assuming I understand correctly, though (which is highly questionable), this is the wedding procession. You'll have to excuse the horrible photography going on; I was a little bit overwhelmed by the lasers, disco balls, and misters that were filling the room.
Kendra, about to devour a raw prawn/jumbo shrimp (I have no idea which it is, what the difference is, or if there even is a difference). You can see Kailey laughing about our grossed out faces and Jenny being unsure of what's about to happen in the background. There was also me making noises something like "ew ew ew ew ew ew!"
And then Maggie helping Kailey dissect her... prawn thing.
Then they came out with this fish that still had its eyes. The best (?) part was that it had teeth, too!
Cindy's parents, then Cindy, then Cindy's husband and his parents (I have no idea what his name is, and I don't know who the guy at the very end with the microphone is, either, nor do I know what he was saying).

They were handing out "lucky candy" in the baskets as the guests were leaving. Isn't it adorable? It didn't taste that great (it wasn't horrible, just not as delicious as what I would hope), but it sure was cute.
