Chinese Wedding 13 November 2010
A pair of bedside lamps. Lamp(deng) has similar sound as son(ding). Hence lighting the lamp, symbolic of adding sons to the family. Right- chinese teacup set for tea ceremony.
Left- Enhui watching the negotiation between the 'brothers' and the 'sisters'.
Right- poor but still happy groom has to pen down a marriage contract which promises the bride 's good marriage life, like 'He has to do all house chores, bring the bride for a holiday at least once a year, etc '. WOW!
