This past Saturday, I went to C.'s house with Clare to attend the bridal shower. I got to see Chan again, who is T.'s sister. We had a lot of good laughs. I also met one of T.'s colleagues, and she was very funny. We laughed about T. and his sister and how much they resemble one another.
Chan and T. have a similar accent: not a Vietnamese or Cantonese or any linguistic accent. Rather, I believe it's a special accent for their family only. They use the same phrases and expressions, which sounds hilarious when you hear Chan's voice in your ear, but you can picture T.'s voice in your head. Really, it was very funny for those of us who know T. well.
There were 2 funniest moments. One was when C. was beting quizzed on how well she knew her fiance, T. Clare and I knew a lot of the answers, but too bad we weren't sitting next to C., otherwise we would have given her the answers. Poor C., she ended up having to stuff her face with all these marshmellows, which is quite sickening if you think about it.
Then, C. had to open her gifts, and quite a number of women gave her lingerie. What made it funny was how some people gave her very revealing lingerie, and she liked the cute ones more, or the ones that were more conservative.
Overall, I would say it was a huge success! Thanks to Chris, Carol and Tien, the bridesmaids, for organizing this party.
