Project: Reflect 52 #44 - A wedding that saves sharks


In Malaysia, it's a tradition to serve shark's fin soup during Chinese wedding dinners. The older Chinese generation holds the perspective that shark's fin soup symbolizes wealth and fortune. Therefore, if the bride and groom's parents are elderly Chinese with hardcore traditional mindset, shark's fin soup will most likely be served to the guests.

Janes and Francis boldly declined (I believe, with their parents' consent) the serving of shark's fin soup during their wedding dinner. They observed the "say no to shark's fin" principle. There's a placard with the tagline "Our Wedding Saves Shark" printed on it on each table.

I was very touched by this thoughtful gesture. This should serve as a good example to all future bride and grooms out there to be bold enough to do the same.

SAY NO TO SHARK'S FIN!

Two years ago, during a wedding dinner in Malacca, the bride and groom served shark's fin soup. I refused to drink a single drop and pushed the bowl back to the center of the table. A few guests repeated the same thing. Hahaha! It's YOUR wedding! Can't you be bold enough to dictate what you want to serve to your guests? Just say NO to that bloody soup, is that so difficult? 


Congratulations Janes and Francis!

  1. Great! Double thumbs up! Most wedding banquets here are doing away with the soup too. Hope everybody will follow suit...

    1. Nahhhhhh, the host won't ever know, unless he and his wife read my blog. LOL!

      There were almost 40 tables and the waiter cleared the remaining bowls of soup before serving the next dish.
