Chinese Wedding Menu

A friend of ours got married. My husband and I had the privilege of attending both the ceremony and the reception. The reception was held at the Victoria Chinese Restaurant on Melville Street in Vancouver. The three hundred guests in attendance were treated to a 13-course meal:

* Suckling pig barbecue meat combination
* Sautee seafood (shrimp and scallops) and walnut with vegetables
* Deep fried crab claw with shrimp puree
* Shark fin soup with crab meat and chicken
* Sautee lobster with "supreme sauce" (basically a side plum sauce)
* Steamed fish with green onion and soya
* Braised abalone with Chinese mushroom and vegetables
* Deep fried crispy chicken
* Honeymoon fried rice (rice with two different kinds of sauces and vegetables)
* Braised E-Fu noodles (mushroom flavour)
* Sweetened red bean with lily and lotus soup
* Chinese petites fours (deep fried sesame balls)
* Wedding cake

Table wine was Wyndam Estate Bin 555 Shiraz from Australia. We toasted with Remy Martin Cognac (smooooth!) with the wedding party.

I also tried Red Bull energy drink for the first time. I think it's only been approved by Health Canada only recently. It contains caffeine as well as some other substances including 1,000 (mcg?) of Taurine, whatever that is. It tasted like carbonated lemon Neo Citran. I did feel a little more awake after drinking a can of it though.

Vasectomy Chronicles - Recovery Day 21

Last Thursday was the 21st after the vasectomy operation.

Recovery generally went very well with little pain or odd sensations.

I didn't quite make my goal of 25 ejaculations but did produce my 20th as a sample to take to the urologist. He was impressed that there were absolutely no sperm present, live or dead. If it had been eight weeks instead of three he would have been ready to give me the green light to "go forth and (don't) multiply".

He wanted to review a bit of literature before committing to viewing another sample before eight weeks post-vasectomy. Even as I found in my research there's little data to show when spontaneous recanalizations occur.

So we may or may not be in holding pattern for another five weeks. If things go well and smoothly this week I may still try to put forth a good argument (and sample) to attempt to get an official "all clear" before we go on vacation next week.
