adrock2xander's Big Fat Greek Wedding

I had the pleasure of attendin a Greek weddin several weeks back...micheLe's workmate Stavroula was marryin her long time sweetheart John...it's an all-Greek affair...so the church weddin was conducted at a Greek Orthodox church...and 98% of the guests were Greeks...



Greek church weddings are rather different from the Catholic Church weddings that many of us are familar with...true they're Christians...but there's a Greek twist to it...involvin lots of Bible kissin and walkin around in circles...i suppose it would have been more interestin if the pastor took time off to offer everyone a
Greek shish kebab...

In fact it got so Greek...the pastor spoke in Greek for the entire ceremony...everyone laughed at the Greek pastor when he made a Greek joke...everyone spoke Greek...the church looked Greek...the crucified Jesus looked Greek...i went in smellin of Issey Miyake and came out smellin Greek...i stood out like a fuckin sore thumb...the only Chinese in church...then again noone's there to look at me...all eyes were at the lovely couple...

Beads of rice and confetti...meant for good luck...were thrown at the unsuspectin couple...

adrock2xander's Art of Survival #34 - Never get rice thrown at you at near range...Step aside...Dodge...Scream...coz it hurts...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If it were up to me...i'll throw rice at the couple solely for selfish reasons...like say if the bride's ya ex-girlfriend...you have earned the right to flush a bag of rice at the groom's face...



John and Stav were the media darlings of the day...smartin as their faces were...they've gota put on a Hollywood front and wave to their excited groupies...



The church gig over...everyone went about on their own way...headin home to look their bloody finest as a weddin dinner beckons...the festivities got the better of me i reckon...a shameless shot of myself in a suit...



Greek weddin dinners are what i would call a glutton's paradise...a 3-hit combo...a menage-a-trois...the food is offered and served in tempt and break down even the most hardy and resistant woman...there's the pre-entree...platters of cold cuts...vegetables...cheeses...dips...beers...spirits...sodas and bread all lovingly laid out on ya designated table for ya consumption...



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
adrock2xander's Art of Survival #156 - Always eat in moderation and check the menu before insertin food into ya mouth...you'll never know how much more you've gotta eat...
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pre-entree done...the bride and groom waltzed down the stairs...lookin resplendant...



I was busy checkin out hot Greek chicks at this point...Greeks must love to dance...coz there're many Greeks on the dancefloor...gettin a piece of Greek action...

Do you know what the Greeks serve for entrees? Fish-N-Chips...yup...you heard right...Fish-N-Chips...wtf...

So by the time i was done with the entree...i was a beached whale...i absolutely couldnt take anymore food...good thing the Greek weddin culture took over again...coz everyone started gettin up to dance...



Dancin took away another 30 minutes...by this time i got hungry again...and the main course arrived just in time...yet...by the time i was done with it...i swore i couldnt fit another pea into my mouth...Greeks must love their food...but no! The Greeks stood up and dancin again for another 30 minutes...

So it was food and wine...dancin...followed by more food...and more dancin...and more food...oh boy...i could get used to this!!

adrock2xander's Art of Survival #88 - Observe other cultures with a keen eye...you'd never know when you'd have to put it into use...

I couldnt resist takin a shot of micheLe's workmates...lookin all beautiful...

*purrs* Hello ladies...ive got everythin you need *winks*



Neither could i resist a cute pose of the 2 of us...



Greek weddings are fun...im now actively lookin for a Greek girlfriend...any Greeks out there lookin for a good time with an attractive Chinese? *chuckles*
