Proms

Last week, we had dinner at my grandma's house in celebration of Chinese New Year. One of my aunts was talking about the proms nowadays (since her daughter will soon be attending one) and reminiscing about the time that she had hers. It made think of the proms I attended. In my time, dates were assigned. Not much choices in clothes, makeup and blackhead removal care of mom. Pretty boring when compared to the proms nowadays, actually. Now there are more choices for gowns and dresses. Girls get made up by professionals. And get actual dates and not people assigned to them. And moms as excited as their daughters. (And maybe dads more nervous about their princesses? :P)

My other aunt said that while girls now only had to worry about getting a date and how they would look, her worry that time was actually going to the prom, since she had strict traditional Chinese parents and was an only girl. During her prom, her date was her brother. Hmmm, I guess that makes my prom just a little bit better, but not much.
