Happy Friday! It’s a long Labour Day weekend here in Bangkok as well as in other countries so its time to get out and relax! 🙂 I’d like to borrow a quote from the movie “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” which I just saw for the first time and found hilarious. During the wedding reception, the father of the bride gives a speech in which he says,
” We are all different, but in the end we are all fruits.”
I loved it. He was talking about how his family’s last name meant orange as in “oranges,” while the groom’s family last name meant “apple.” One family was a traditional US family which was somewhat “dry as toast” (as the father of the bride described them) while the bride’s family was very Greek and very large. There were relatives everywhere and everyone was in everybody’s way.
They were opposites, coming from different cultures,values, and beliefs. It reminded me of us here in Bangkok with our “fruity war.” If you recall my post on “Very Red Tomatoes” I talked about how we had different fruit names for each side. We had durians, watermelons, mangoes, and tomatoes.
In the end, no matter what, we are all fruits. And fruits should love each other, because when mixed together, they make a great fruit salad! 🙂 A great dessert for this very very very hot summer! 🙂
