The graduation was straight-forward. Hands were shaken, expensive pieces of paper were given, then onto the posing with a doll-set smile. Unfortunately half of the photos were over-exposed, I'm yet to see the other half yet.
You know when you think about it the Chancellor has a hard task. Standing on the stage he has to shake hands with hundreds of people, maintain a 5 second conversation while smiling non-stop, for a few days in a row. Now thats an effort.
And after all the formality is over with, an ideal way for graduates to recover (ie celebrate) is by dining with family for lunch. At dad's request, it was over to Tingha Palace Chinese Restaurant in Parramatta. I hadn't been to yum cha for a while now and so actually really enjoyed it for a change.
