After graduation, each of my classmates follows their own paths. Some went to work; some continued to study and some decided to get married. I feel very happy that my friends take turns to get married and build happy families.
Due to being scattered after graduation, I and my friends do not have many chances to hang out together. The workload and hectic schedule gradually make us fall apart although we still keep in touch on facebook. We just have enough time for a quick chat about daily life or recent work. Therefore, it is a great opportunity for us to gather at our friends’ wedding.
I remember the first time I went to my friend’s wedding. We dressed in our best clothes and gathered at the wedding hall. Looking at my friend’s wedding photos made me feel very proud. The happy smile on her face brightened up the atmosphere.
We sat around the table and talked about our recent lives. It was a great feeling when we could talk to one another directly. We savoured the food and looked back on our university time. Everyone seemed more mature and experienced. Everyone talked cheerfully while giving the bride and the groom the best wishes. I was very excited when the bride tossed the bouquet at the end of the wedding.
The food was so delicious and appetizing. The roasted duck with apple sauce served with fried buns was definitely a highlight of the party. The duck meat tasted tender with stacks of flavour. The roasted skin of the duck was brownish and crispy. The scent of apple sauce added more flavours to the duck. The grilled buns were a perfect companion with the roasted duck.
I was also impressed with the crispy Seabass topped with lemon sauce. Seabass was a great fish to pair with wine in a party. The food styling made the fish look more colourful and appetizing. Some vegetables such as corns, cucumbers, peppers and garlic added a fresh and sour taste to the fish. The crispy fish with the drizzle of sour lemon sauce tasted totally delicious.
Furthermore, the Thai’s style seafood Tom Yum Soup served with noodles were worth enjoying. Nobody can resist the temptation of the hot-smoking soup with fresh shrimp, sweet fish balls, peas, lemongrass and a lot of vegetables. I love savouring the spicy and sour hot broth with fragrant lemongrass while biting the fresh shrimps. The hot soup uplifted my spirit in a rainy day.
