Hsinchu and my Father in Law's Exhibition
My father in law makes an entrance.
We ran up to Hsinchu again today to see the exhibition of my father in law's paintings at TSMC and to celebrate his 75th birthday. My brother in law, a manager in the personnel division, arranged the exhibition. We were not allowed to bring our cameras into the building, and so I do not have any photographs. After 20 minutes in a place where I had never been before, without my camera, well, I had to be led away mewling and puking. The separation was hard.
I got my fill of photos at the swank eatery that my sister and brother in law took us to in Hsinchu. We got a set meal and I assumed, like almost all set meals, that there wouldn't be enough food. So I ate quite a bit a the front end. Big mistake. For once, there was way too much food.
A zither adds a beautiful musical touch.
Expert fingers hard at work.
Yes, for once, there was way too much food. I'll let the pictures do the talking.
The kids enjoy the sashimi.
Mom clowns around.

Celebrating my father in law's 75th.
I left out the goat ribs in pepper sauce, the dim sum, some of the appetizers, the fruit plate, the pudding, one of the soups....by the time we were finished, I never wanted to see food again. And that's saying a lot.
