Weekend was great and am sad to see it go 😦
Here are some of its highlights:
1. New flavor of the month from Baskin Robbins.
I squeal in delight at the start of each month for the unveiling of Baskin Robbins new monthly flavor. (I take joy in the little things in life!). Some months are sub-par, but December did not disappoint. Welcome Santa’s Cookie Crunch. Loaded with cookie pieces and chocolate, this flavor rocked!
Baskin Robbins, you will see me again very soon 🙂
2. Our First Korean Wedding.
We got a little gussied up and ventured out to take part in the unknown.
Koreans still do preform a traditional Korean ceremony, but for the most part, and the biggest part, their weddings somewhat mirror a North American wedding….well, sort of.
It’s like a very very expensive version of a Las Vegas wedding. It’s in a huge wedding hall, with tons of people, where one ceremony is preformed after the other, which means that there is another family waiting for yours to finish and theirs to start. Everything is very elaborate, but very rushed and impersonal.
We first walked into a little room where the bride sits on a pedestal. People greet the bride and get their picture taken with her.
She sits their until the ceremony begins.
Then we made our way into the wedding hall.
Spot lights and multi-coloured lighting.
We did not understand the words in the ceremony (as our Korean is not that fluent), but it was still nice.
After the ceremony concluded we got ushered into the banquet hall where lunch was served. A ginormous buffet was presented for us to enjoy. The weird thing is that you share the banquet hall with all the other weddings that have also occurred (hence the impersonality of it all). Regardless of that fact, the food was great and was much enjoyed.
So it was a very different wedding experience. It was fun to be able to take part in it. I just wish that Korean’s would retain more of their own culture in their weddings and less of the “American ideal.”
3. The new Narnia movie in 3D
Love the Narnia series. I think I liked this one better than the second. We actually had the opportunity to see it in 4D…have you ever heard of this? Moving seats, smell-o-vision, mist, 3D glasses etc. Crazy eh? We opted out as the tickets were around 16$ each…3D was good enough for us.
4. Yummy Salads and Dessert Parfaits.
Need I say more?
Apples, cooked on the stove-top, with lemon, juice, cinnamon, sugar and raisins. Vanilla ice cream on the bottom, apple mixture and toasted walnuts on the top. Divine!
Hope you all had lovely weekends.
