what's the point of driving one to work all day long solely as a relief of your fucking anger or dissatisfaction ?!
When it came to the very end of a day, while I was waiting for her to unplug the computer to sleep I had several minutes of flipping through a book. Just a book with thoughts sharing, but i was already impressed with How Tyler Brule mentioned ‘intellectual currency’.
This was just what I , or most of the same aged group lack. You can’t get it short-term, it’s something you need to pay your time and effort into experience, learning, reading.
Do you possess any of such currency ?
It is already 2 days after Tao & Yiu’s wedding when I started to write something back for the wedding on Saturday. The reasons are simple – first, Manutd just got the worst defeat to ManCity (I could not refrain myself from throwing things again); And Second, the rather explainable one, is I am just able to recover from the wedding physically (never in my life I have worn the formal suit for the whole day) and thus, let the memory condense to something I can write it out.
I wasn’t a guest to participate in the wedding. Instead, I was very honoured to be selected as Tao’s ‘brother’ and also the driver for the wedding, which turns out providing me a different angle to this wedding, and of course, lots of first time experiences.
I was the driver for the wedding already a day in advance to Wong’s wedding, as I was responsible to carry Tao’s family from Tuen Mun to Tao’s new home early in the morning of wedding day. I chose to arrive a day earlier, which in turn I had double ‘1st time experience’ – a driver, and risked my life to sleep with Tao WITHOUT wingwing’s permission; And when the day continues I was then responsible to carry the filming and photoshooting crew. It’d be easy if they were not shooting when travelling, but in fact it wasn’t – I drove just like the those who were filming in the street, with hands-free talking with the couple’s car on how to drive, while at the same time being instructed to be ‘slower, faster, closer…. ‘ for good angle to shoot and tape.
Yet, when comparing the duty of driver to ‘brother’, I can say being a ‘brother’ is even more challenging to a zero-experience person like me. That’s why in a wedding so many ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ are needed, as there is always something surprising to be handled, e.g. being asked to strip for push up, or trivial details e.g. confirmation of wedding dinner tables, smooth video playing. It was lucky that on that day things went smooth, although we might haven’t captured every touching moments that made guests e.g. Sunnie, wingwing or my sister sobbed.
Yet if I was asked again to choose between working crew or guest to enjoy the wedding, considering it as privilege, it’d still be the driver and brother. After all, it’s still nice to watch in the TV downstairs to say ‘I do’.
