Several disappointed, international antelope, have asked me where they went wrong in their pursuit of the Dutch lion.The shallow man, is, as always, sensitive to the needs of his expat flock.A velvet bag full of USA Gold dollars was offered next, but promptly refused as not being 100% gold. Aleks' wedding planner told me the next day at the Country Club brunch that she cried when she heard the Choir sing all of the responses in church, and also the "Oce Nas" and "Mnogaja Ljeta" & "Ziveli" at the start of the reception afterwards."I'm used to a professional singer here or there, but nothing like that! Their wedding favors featured chocolate truffles from BELGRADE, LONDON, BUFFALO (Lackawanna) and PITTSBURGH!Many customs regarding good behavior have been exported to places with cultural traditions based in Europe, including America, Oceania, South Africa and so on.
The shallow man has met many an expat lady that have been on dates with Dutch men that have not led to happy endings.Before telling you about the mistakes expats often make when dating a Dutch man, here’s a story about an incident in Amsterdam.A female friend and sometimes running partner of the shallow man, was having a massage in a place in the Rivierenbuurt.It is the grace and beauty of the Serbian Orthodox wedding ceremony-the solemn Sacrament of Marriage itself, and it's also the heart-thumping kolo dancing outside of the church by the wedding party and well-wishers, while coins are being tossed to promise good luck/financial prosperity. Its a MUST to record with your eyes, ears and heart everything that you're seeing and hearing. JT's brother, Paul (a Ceramics Engineer) was excellent in his role as Dever, bartering long and hard before winning the bride's hand for his brother, as Aleks' brother, Bronko, made sure Paul's offers were worthy of his beautiful, kind and talented sister!What can bring about more smiles than watching our young children scampering to find as many silver pieces as their little fingers can hold, all the while the American and Serbian flags are being waved about so whole-heartedly? That way, you'll always be able to forever cherish and call forth those beautiful memories. He carried the American and Serbian flags, walking in front of the Bridal Party Limousine, all the way from the bride's home to the church, a Herculean effort that will be talked about for years to come! That this couple chose to highlight their Serbian heritage and culture made EVERYONE in attendance so happy and proud! Paul's first offer of a Pittsburgh Steeler Terrible Towel coupled with a case of famous Pittsburgh Iron City beer was promptly rejected. But when Paul pulled out an envelope from inside his tuxedo and genuinely looked repentant, saying it was all the Stipanovich Family had left to offer, Bronko rifled through the envelope's money inside, and finally relented, bringing forth the PRIZE to the gasps and delight of the whole neighborhood! for our Aleks and her Mom, Desanka, and EVERYONE was so happy! Stephen's Serbian Orthodox Church was the scene of this wedding.
