窮學生食記 Poor Student Dinner
It’s very appreciate and cherish the chance of study for a poor student. The life of study is anguish and hard for the oversea student (include me). For the change of life and get rid of poverty level, so we come Taiwan for further study. I always appreciate Taiwan provide a high standard university education with cheap school fee.
Study with working is hard to taking into account, sometimes don’t have the money to eat, I will buy 500g of Bee-Hon, use the hot water to boil cookong like instant noodle. Eat with the garlic sauce and tabasco, I dream one day I can live without worrying about meals, I will try my best to turn around my life. Thank you for the tasty bee-hon with garlic sauce and tabasco. Actually, I am lucky compare with the other who don’t have the food to eat and don’t have the chance to study.
The happiness of Hûi independent of his poverty.
The Master said, “Admirable indeed was the virtue of Hûi! With a single bamboo dish of rice, a single gourd dish of drink, and living in his mean narrow lane, while others could not have endured the distress, he did not allow his joy to be affected by it. Admirable indeed was the virtue of Hûi!”
