Guilty as charged but did he really bank in the ang pow monies or just ask for shows sake? Not being money faced here, but based on credibility and honor.

Maybe it's because of my profession. I shoot weddings for living laugh.gif

So I get to see these reasoning and stories thru their phone calls on wedding nights very often. But sadly the dabao culture is not practiced by most. Most of the left over food just went into trash. sweat.gif

LOL.....yeah you get to experience listening to real life drama events unfolding right before you.

Dabao culture only prominent at Malay and Indian weddings. Such a waste of so much left over food.

Chinese Wedding Dinner .....

The most boring and stressful dinner to attend.

Wish that I am ask ahead whether available to attend instead of passing the card straight to me.

To a good friend ... Is your wedding ... I want to sit together with you to eat, drink, sing and laugh .... not sitting with some strangers. Not not your wedding day of course ... but can be earlier or later.

Sigh.......people these days just impose and invite every tom dick and harry without giving a second thought.

Over the weekend I went to my regular car grooming shop. I saw so many people in the shop, so I thought business was so good. Turns out, one of the customers came to wash and groom his car for his wedding reception that night. After he left, the lead technician told me the story and that the groom actually invited him to attend his wedding dinner reception as well. I just face palmed myself.

Asking ahead normally will have less absentees. People who have confirmed normally will turn up. More work calling up each and everyone but better than those not turning up and a seat allocated.

Empty seats and tables doesnt reflect well on the host.

Some people could be really want to share their happiness with everyone.
Or he could have really consider the technician as his friend but too bad the technician dont see it that way.

Sadly, that might be true. Each to it's own I guess.
