Mominbox went on a trip to the East to say good-bye to a relative and share remembrance with those present. On the return trip, we stopped at a Chinese restaurant – a buffet to enjoy their wares before heading home. I like to sample many entrees and take very little of each as there are so many choices. I have previously tried to eat what tastes good and after so many sessions of painful stomach have learned to moderate my intake. A couple of bites of each is enough for a taste, and still I don’t get everything. Anyways, at the end of the meal the fortune cookie was presented and we looked at the inserts and compared. For this post I decided to combine them:
“Now is a great time to broaden your scope of influence.”
“Balance life with a little sweet & sour.”
“A beautiful person is with you, confide your problems.”
On the back of each was Chinese words for the patron to learn:
keai – cute
fei chang hao – very good
ji rou – chicken
The combination would be: keai fei chang hao ji rou. I guess they were trying to teach us how to describe supper.
Just as an aside, I have a personal pair of chopsticks. They have their own box and I took them to use. The waiter informed me that I was the first to bring my own set.
