I went to a chinese banquet this past saturday.  The invite said 6 pm, and seeing how I am chinese and knew these events never started on time I decided to show up at 630 (feeling guilty already!) …but the banquet didn’t start till  8pm!  We didn’t start eating till 830!  I was beyond hungry and grumpy!!

am i a minority? i am chinese, but i’m almost never late. i’d rather be early than late. i’ll only be late if traffic got really really horribly bad (worse than i had planned into my schedule). i really think it depends on the people..

i had the same experience as @crash806. got there at 5:30 for a 6pm reception, dinner didn’t start till 8pm, i was FURIOUS! in fact, i just had to complain to the groom (a really close friend of mine) the other day even though the wedding was more than 5 years ago!! 😛

i will not wait for anyone at my reception. it will start ON TIME!! (i am very calm.. haha)

yeah they are always late, most of my family probably won’t show up to the cermony… I was upset at first but I learned to just accept it, don’t get stressed out by these things.  ^_^
