The place I hate to go
Weddings are the most beautiful and lovely things in people's lives, but after the wedding, there are some traditions in Taiwan that I dislike. The newly-married husband and wife must treat their friends and relatives to a meal, and most of the time they do so by the side of the road. When you walk into the temporary tent, you will see a dim light at the top of the tent. You have to sit at a circular table and finish your dinner. Most people can't hear each other, so it's boring to just sit there and do nothing except eat. The floor is dirty and oily, because someone will drop food and drinks on the floor before you notice it. There are usually some noisy hand puppet shows but there are the most interesting things though still pretty boring. I don't like to go to the wedding banquets even if it's my relatives.
