Random Thoughts from Wedding

Joined my parents, brother, and sister-in-law to a wedding banquet near our home last night.  It was the wedding of the son of late Mr. Kot.  I remember that around this time 2 years ago I was actually on the same ship with Mr. Kot during a cruise trip to Japan…

Sitting at our table and a table next to us were my dad’s friends, some of whom I haven’t seen for many years, one of them was an elderly (near 90 yr old I think) who were on the same cruise trip with us and Mr. Kot. 2 years ago.  This elderly uncle seemed to have forgotten about our happy cruise trip together as he didn’t seem to recognise me and asked my dad if I was his younger son.  Despite seemingly affected by Alzheimer’s disease, he constantly held a joyous smile and still kept his habit of adding soda to his red wine just like he taught me during the cruise trip.

It was a joyous wedding banquet despite the food.  I’m ok with the food actually (except for the shark fin soup which I passed to my parents’ displease), but my parents and their old pals who used to be in the dim sum restaurant business were just too difficult to please.  Regardless, seeing my dad’s old pals and hearing their conversations brought back fond memories of the times when I usually see them every Sunday in high school.  It would be perfect if Mr. Kot was here with us last night.

Besides the banquet, not much have been happening to me this week other than finally completing a 3D print job for a friend that took nearly 2 weeks.  I also picked up a book about Einstein, it’s one of those books that you just can’t put down once you started reading.  The long biography should keep me occupied for another week.
