Andy & Jean

I love cross-cultural weddings! It’s always interesting to see people experiencing different cultures and trying to make sense of it all. Andy and his English buddies were introduced to a very popular Chinese delicacy – the thousand-year-old egg or more commonly known as the century egg. For the benefit of non-Chinese readers in my blog, the century egg is actually duck or quail eggs soaked and marinated in a mixture of clay, ash, salt and rice straw for several weeks to several months. The end result are eggs black in color. The taste can be quite daunting for the uninitiated. To help put things into perspective and for Chinese folks out there who do not understand what’s the fuss about eating century eggs, think of it as eating French blue cheese or eating grilled spiders in Cambodia and you’ll get the idea. Anyway, here are some of my favorite photos from Andy & Jean’s wedding…

Yes, the dreaded century-egg
