Money matters

Here's how it works. You arrive at your 93-year old grandmother's place after a couple years away from Taiwan (you've only met her a few times). After a few minutes, unknown relatives arrive from next door after hearing a commotion through the wall. Your aunt gives you some money, which you have to take after trying to refuse. Your parents then give your aunt money. Later, you give the money to your mother, who then gives it back to your grandmother, who will probably give it to your distant cousin, which won't make your aunt happy because she gives too much money to her.

During this entire time, you are forced to eat pork, chicken, and fruit.

Now we're at the courthouse getting my parents registered for marriage in Taiwan. They were fined just under 10 dollars for registering 33 years late.
