Dear All:

I traveled from Taipei, on May 4, to Boston for BIO 2007 International Convention. There are 96 attendees from Taiwan, total registrants for the convention exceeded 21,000 people.

Afterwards, I flew to NYC to attend my Tunghai old-timer's daughter's wedding. The wedding ceremony was beautifully held in a Roman Catholic church. Then, the wedding reception party was held at another place at Westbury Manor
at Jericho Turnpike, Long Island. The reception party was quite impressive.

All attendees circled up. Firstly, the bride's father danced with the beautiful bride
to the music Moon River which was sung by a singer with a great band. The affection between the bride and her father was easily observed by the audience and that evidenced the proverb in Chinese, "Daughter is the girlfriend of the father in the pre-existence."

Then, the bridegroom's mother danced with the bridegroom to the music Edelweiss (one of the beautiful songs of the movie " The Song of Music") . The bridegroom's mother affectionately lifted up her eyes (the bridegroom is taller than his mother) looking at her son in her arm. The song Edelweiss means goodbye as she is going to transfer her beloved son to the bride. That was very touching. This is really one of the best gifts from children to their parents for Mother's Day. Then, the bride danced happily with the bridegroom. Prince and princess live happily ever after.

I googled the lyrics of the song as follows:

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Every morning you greet me
Small and white, clean and bright
You look happy to meet me

Blossom of snow may you bloom and grow
Bloom and grow forever

Edelweiss, Edelweiss
Bless my homeland forever

Wishing you all a very happy and enjoyable Mother's Day.

Best Regards,
