吃的安心 eat in peace

古语云:民以食为天。

小的时候,就听长者说:吃饭大过皇帝。意思说,没有什么事情比吃饭更大(重要)的。安心吃顿饭,是人生乐事,也是基本的权利。

但今天你在餐馆,饭店,咖啡店,当人们在吃饭的时候,许多推销员前来推销各种产品。有时也看到有人在吃饭时,手和口也忙着在谈电话。吃都不安乐。

我今天到顾客办公室时,刚好午餐时间。员工们把早前买好的饭盒全拿了出来,放在桌上。这个时候,同事们聚在一起,享用一顿简单但美味的午餐,确是一种享受。大家都坐的舒服,吃的舒服,好好的共渡这一个小时的美好休息时间。

祝愿他们,天天都吃的开心,工作用心,生活安心。



Food on the table is what all are working for.

I remembered from young, the elders used to say: Eating meal is greater than the emperor, which means when you are eating a meal, no one can stop or disturb you. Eating a meal in peace is a simple but great pleasure of life, and a basic human right.

However, if you are eating in a restaurant, or a coffee shop, many peddlers would come to harass you with all kinds of products. Also you can see many people waving hands and talking to the phone while eating... can't even have a meal in peace.

I was at my customer's office today during lunch time. The staff brought out their lunch boxes to eat on a table. This is the time when colleagues can be together, to enjoy a simple but delicious meal comfortably. This is a precious moment for fellowship.

I wish them eat happily, work happily and live happily always!

是的,记得小时候,吃饭时是很严肃的,不可交谈,用筷子或汤匙要小心,以免和碗或桌子相碰而发出声音,不然的话《桌神》会被吓跑,《桌神》一跑,肯定没有好日子过,这是我小时父亲告诉我的。

这虽然是迷信(我相信我的公公也曾是这样告诉我爸爸),但我想主要的目的是要一家大小好好用餐。 只是他们(长辈)用迷信的说法,好使后辈比较“怕”而遵守。

不过现在由于时代不同,和家人一起吃饭,适当的交谈因该是可以的,这也是与家人交流和增加家庭乐趣的最佳时刻。

对那些忙得不能安份地吃一顿饭,我只能同情他们。

是的,有时我看到那些在吃着饭的人,口咬饭菜,手脚口并动的在讲电话,第一,缺乏礼貌。老人家说的没教养。第二,吃都不安宁,真没意思。这和吃饭团聚的谈话不同。

最糟糕的还说的很大声,打扰别人。真是气煞!
