Wedding Ceremony 4/14 (Sat)

文章 Yubor »

Dear Yoyos,

This is Yubor. I have been gently forced by Lydia to be the host of April 14. Of course, the topic is designated by her too. As a result, I am going to talk about the wedding ceremony.

PS: Please take notice that the preparation work of reading and digesting the following reading material is a must.
[Reading Material]
http://abeautifulaffairoftheheart.com/
http://abeautifulaffairoftheheart.com/Services.html

Questions:
Session I:
1. Have you ever attended any exotic wedding ceremony before? Please share your experience with us.
2. If you have the chance to plan your own wedding without the concern of budget, how will you plan for it? Why?
3. If there are different opinions about wedding between you and your fiance/fiancee or in-laws, what are you going to do? How are you going to convince them to accept your ideas?
Session II:
1. What is the origin of wedding? What do you think of wedding ceremony?
2. Men and women may think differently about marriage. Please list what your concern is if you are going to get married.
3. Ladies, please imagine you are going to get married now. You’ve planned to have a wedding ceremony abroad. Gentlemen, please imagine how to deal with such a request / how to plan with your fiancee. (Everyone should be fully prepared since the host might randomly ask a lady and a gentleman from a group to demonstrate. The dialogue should cover:
(If the proposal is accepted)
1).the wedding place,
2).the wedding plan,
3) the guests,
4).the time,
5).and anything else that you’d like to add.
(In case the proposal is not accepted immediately)
1). The reasons why you didn’t accept the request.
2). The ladies should try to convince the gentlemen to marry them at their best.
3). The gentlemen should try not to be convinced as much as they possibly can.

This is an unlikely song about wedding, but I am sure some may have already used it as such.



Dirty World

Verse 1:

He love your sexy body, he loves your dirty mind

He loves when you hold him when you grab him from behind

Oh baby, you're such a pretty thing

I can't wait to introduce you to the other members of my gang

Verse 2:

You don't need no wax job, you're smooth enough for me

If you need you oil changed I'll do it for you free

Oh baby, the pleasure would be all mine

If you let me drive your pickup truck and park it where the

sun don't shine

Verse 3:

Every time he touches you his ass stands up on end

His legs begin to quiver and his mind begins to bend

Oh baby, you're such a tasty treat

But I'm under doctor's orders, I'm afraid to overeat

Verse 4:

He love your sense of humor, your disposition too

There's absolutely nothing that he don't love about you

Oh baby, I'm on my hands and knees

Life would be so simple if I only had you to please

Coda:

Oh baby, turn around and say goodbye

You go to the airport now and I'm going home to cry

Chorus:

He loves your...

Electric dumplings

Red bell peppers

Fuel injection

Service charge

Five-speed gearbox

Long endurance

Quest for junk food

Big refrigerator

Trembling wilbury

Marble earrings

Porky curtains

Power steering

Bottled water

One question I had during the discussion was which word we should use when talking about 相親.

a blind date? or a matchmaking?

The next question is how to use it.


Anyone can help me on it?

I think "blind date" is a slightly more general term. Longman Dictionary defines the phrase as "a social meeting between a boy and a girl who have not met before". Meanwhile, "matchmaking" is kind like a blind date but is more official. It is arrnaged by a matchmaker who is usually present at the dating scene.
Knowledge is power -- when shared.

相親- prospective marriage arrangement.

Everybody has in their own mind the classic definition of 相親.
The usual presence of elders as chaperone automatically disqualifies 相親 as a date. However, a couple may decide to date each other after that.
The word "arrangement" generalizes the various situations that usually associated with such occasion, such as a date, a meeting, an interrogation, a hostage exchange program... what ever.

How to use it?

Just say "My parents hooked me up with a nice girl and their were nice enough to act as my chaperon. Since I was just too shy and tongue-tied under the circumstances"

Hi Wayne,

I don't quite understand what you meant when you said "they were nice enough to act as my chaperon." Could you explain it a little bit? Thanks.

I was just trying to be more descriptive. 相親 takes so many shapes and form. Perhaps every 相親 event is unique, and there may no longer be a standard practice. On a regular date, the last thing anybody would want is to have some elders to tag along. But that seems to be the case with 相親. Anyway, the thing is that when there is a social phenomenon being repeated. Somebody will decide to give it a name. For example, "Hazing" is an practice that is commonly known in college campus across the USA.
Good luck translating or explaining "hazing" into Chinese. and It will take more than few words to explain the whole shebang.
