▼ Westbury Manor, Long Island,
I traveled from Taipei, on May 4, to
Boston for BIO 2007 International Convention.
There are 96 attendees from Taiwan, total registrants for the convention
exceeded 21,000 people.
Afterwards, I flew to NYC to attend my Tunghai old-timer's
daughter's wedding. The wedding
was beautifully held in a Roman Catholic church. Then, the wedding reception
party was held at another place at
Turnpike, Long Island. The reception party was quite impressive.
All attendees circled up. Firstly,
the bride's father danced with the beautiful bride
music Moon River which was sung by a singer with a great band.
The affection between the bride and her father was easily observed by
the audience and that evidenced the proverb in Chinese, "Daughter is the
girlfriend of the father in the pre-existence."
the bridegroom's mother danced with the bridegroom
to the music Edelweiss (one of the beautiful songs of the movie
" The Song of Music") . The bridegroom's mother affectionately
lifted up her eyes (the bridegroom is taller than his mother) looking
at her son in her arm. The song Edelweiss means goodbye as she is going
to transfer her beloved son to the bride. That was very touching. This
is really one of the best gifts from children to their parents for Mother's
Day. Then, the bride danced happily with the bridegroom. Prince and princess
live happily ever after.
I googled the lyrics of the song as follows:
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me
Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever
Bless my homeland forever
you all a very happy and enjoyable Mother's Day.
