1 Corinthians 13: 1 & 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

A story in a restaurant (5D Huga Chan)

WOW! I had a perfect worktime in “Chinese food”!

At first, I felt bored during worktime. Cause I was just repeating the same work everyday, for example: serving the food to customers, counting the money, washing the dishes. If I had enough money to buy new books, I would not work in here definitely.

One day evening, my last three days at this restaurant, an old lady and two kids entered.

“May I have your order?” I said slowly and smilingly.

She counted her coins carefully, “A bowl of fishball noodles,”

“It will take a few mintes for cooking.”

“And may I have empty two bowls?” She asked hopefully.


After the bowl of noodle was served, she shared it into two small bowls. And gave them to two kids. The two kids ate the noodles immediately. It seems that they did not have dinner for days. Mr. Lam, who was the boss of “Chinese food”, saw this and twalked owards them. She was inspired by the old lady, “Hi, you three are the 500th customer of today, you can award two bowls of Shang Hai Chop rice!! She said warmly.

A big smile went onto her face that was the most beautiful smile I’ve never seen.

Finally, they finished all the food and went back home.

How beautiful it was! A super kind master and three full people! I am proud of my boss.

Next day, they arrived at the front of the restaurant. I thought it wasn’t unusual, maybe they had spare time.

Time passed quickly. In the evening, they entered the restaurant.

“We are the 500th customer of today, may I get two bowls of Shang Wai Chop rice… free of charge?” She asked nervously.

A smile went to Mr Lam’s face, “Of course, lady, you can award this!”

The following days, they counted the number of customers of the restaurant! And they were the 500th customer everyday.

This is the most unforgettable experience in my summer holiday. I think they need not to worry about the dinner anymore!
