1 Chinese Food

写作作业

T. McArthur

“ F ew things in life are as positive as food, or are taken as intimately and completely by the individual. One can listen to music, but the sound may enter in one ear and go out the other; one may listen to a lecture or conversation, and daydream about many other things; one may attend to matters of business, and one’s heart or interest may be altogether elsewhere …..In the matter of food and eating, however, one can hardly remain completely indifferent to what one is doing for long. How can one remain entirely indifferent to something which is going to enter one’s body and become part of oneself? How can one remain indifferent to something which will determine one’s physical strength and ultimately one’s spiritual and moral fiber and well-being? ”

-Kenneth Lo This is an easy question for a Chinese to ask, but a Westerner might find it difficult to answer. Many people in the West are gourmets and others are gluttons, but scattered among them also is a large number of people who are apparently pretty indifferent to what goes into their stomachs, and so do not regard food as having any ultimate moral effect on them. How, they might ask, could eating a hamburger or drinking Coca-Cola contribute anything to making you a saint or a sinner? For them, food is quite simply a fuel.

Kenneth Lo, however, expresses a point of view that is profoundly different and typically Chinese, deriving from thousands of years of tradition. The London restaurateur Fu Tong, for example, quotes no less an authority than Confucius ( the ancient sage known in Chinese as K ’ung-Fu-Tzu) with regard to the primal importance of food. Food, said the sage, is the first happiness. Fu Tong adds: “Food to my countrymen is one of the ecstasies of life, to be thought about in advance; to be smothered with loving care throughout its preparation; and to have time lavished on it in the final pleasure of eating.”

Lo observes that when Westerners go to a restaurant they ask for a good table, which means a good position from which to see and be seen. They are usually there to be entertained socially-and also, incidentally, to eat. When the Chinese go to a restaurant, however, they ask for a small room with plain walls where they cannot be seen except by the member of their own party, where jackets can come off and they can proceed with the serious business which brought them there. The Chinese intentions are both honorable and whole-hearted: to eat with a capital E.

Despite such a marked difference in attitudes towards what one consumes, there is no doubt that people in the West have come to regard the cuisine of China as something special. In fact, one can assert with some justice that Chinese food is, nowadays, the only truly international food. It is ubiquitous. Restaurants bedecked with dragons and delicate landscapes-serving such exotica as Dim Sin Gai (sweet and sour chicken), Shao Shing soup, Chiao- Tzu and Kuo –Tioh (northern style), and Ging Ai Kwar ( steamed aubergines )- have sprung up everywhere from Hong Kong to Honolulu to Huddersfield.

2 How did this come about? Certainly, a kind of Chinese food was exported to North America when many thousands of Chinese went there in the 19th century to work on such things as the U.S. railways. They settled on or near the west coast, where the famous- or infamous-“chop suey joints” grew up, with their rather inferior brand of Chinese cooking. The standard of the restaurants improved steadily in the United States, but Lo considers that the crucial factor in spreading this kind of food throughout the Western world was population pressure in Hong Kong, China, which sent families out all over the world to seek their fortunes in the opening of restaurants. He adds, however, that this could not have happened if the world had not been interested in what the Chinese had to cook and sell. He detects an increase in sensuality in the Western world: “Color, texture, movement, food, drink, and rock music- all these have become much more a part and parcel of the average person’s life than they have ever been. It is this increased sensuality and the desire for great freedom age-bound habits in the West, combined with the inherent sensual concept of Chinese food, always quick to satisfy the taste buds, that is at the root of the sudden and phenomenal spread of Chinese food throughout the length and breadth of the Western World.”

There is no doubt that the traditional high-quality Chinese meal is a serious matter, fastidiously prepared and fastidiously enjoyed. Indeed, the bringing tighter and initial cutting up and organizing of the materials is, according to Helen Burke, about 90% of the actual preparation, the cooking itself being only about 10%. This 10% is not, however, a simple matter. There are many possibilities to choose from; Kenneth Lo, for example, lists forty methods available for the heating of food, from chu or the art of boiling to such others as ts ’ang, a kind of stir-frying and braising, t ’a, deep frying in batter, and wei, burying food in hot solids such as charcoal, heated stones, sand, salt and lime.

The preparation is detailed, and the enjoyment must therefore match it. Thus, a proper Chinese meal can four hours and proceed almost like a religious ceremony. It is a shared experience for the participants, not a lonely chore, with its procession of planned and carefully contrived dishes, some elements designed to blend, others to contrast. Meat and fish, solids and soups, sweet and sour sauces, crisp and smooth textures, fresh and dried vegetables-all of these and more challenge the palate with their appropriate charms.

In a Chinese meal that has not been altered to conform to Western ideas of eating, everything is presented as a kind of buffet, the guest eating a little of this, a little of that. Individual portions as such are not provided. A properly planned dinner will include at least one fowl, one fish and one meat dish, and their presentation with appropriate vegetables is not just matter to taste but also a question of harmonious colors. The eye must be pleased as well as the palate; if not, then a certain essentially Chinese element is missing, an element that links this cuisine with that must typical and yet elusive concept Tao. Emily Hahn, an American who has lived and worked in China, has a great appreciation of both Chinese cooking and the “way ” that leads to morality and harmony. She insist that “there is moral excellence in good cooking, ” and adds that to the Chinese, traditionally, all life, all action, all knowledge are one.

3 They may be chopped up and given parts with labels, such as “cooking, ” “health ,” “character ” and the like, but none is in reality separate from others. The smooth harmonies and piquant contrasts in Chinese food are more than just the products of recipes and personal enterprise. They are an expression of basic assumption of life itself. (1200words)

Never do the topics concerning schooling fail to fascinate us in the modern society. A lot of people think that it is necessary for students to take a gap year between high school and college. I am one of many advocates for this point of view based on the following reasons.

作业,我烦恼作业,我烦恼

作业是个怪物,既让我喜欢,又让我忧愁。
我真想把书和作业都烧了,我压住身上的火气继续写,一边写一边想,其实老师们也挺不容易的,布置那么多作业为了谁?
我要崩溃了,写作业吧,太多了,脑细胞已经耗费不少了;
一眨眼到了晚上,我还在熬夜写作业,写着,我发觉卷子上的字变成了一个小人,我迷迷糊糊走到镜子前,“哎呀,黑眼圈都出来了!”我倒头就睡。

这个周末阳光明媚,春风和煦,我真想到郊外痛痛快快地玩上一天。
不过一想到还有N多的作业有待攻克,我的心情立刻想泄了气的皮球。
没有作业的假期该多好啊!
今天要是没有作业,我就可以和爸爸到小池塘去捞初生的蝌蚪,看蜻蜓点水;
如果没有作业,我就可以自由地游戏和玩耍,多好啊!
可惜这个周末等待我的是一大堆作业,所有的美好计划都泡汤了。
提起精神做完作业再说吧!

让我们飞起来让我们飞起来

夕阳给窗外的湖面镀上了一层金,我坐在房间里下意识地拨弄着笔尖。
考试的频繁,作业的繁多,升学的压力,让我的心凉到了极点。
我无法面对父母严肃的眼神,只能把自己关在房间里,独自享受这份惆怅。
我想飞,飞到田野中,倾听鸟儿的歌唱;
飞到广场上,和小朋友一起放风筝;
飞到果林中,品尝甜美的果实;
我真想对父母说:松一松束缚我的绳索,请让我们飞起来!

傻了傻了

老爸敲着房门说要早点睡,可我一点都不想睡。
又看了一晚上的一直在想着载赫说的那句话:“我要砍的是允,可为什么是你哭?”不知道为什么,一想起这话,总有流泪的冲动。
“说不在乎的人实际是最在乎的”真的吗?
呆在角落里,抱着双膝,然后把头埋在长长的头发里,一切忧伤都是过去了。
上次无聊的时候跑到精品店买了今年最流行的猪系列,是一对。
她们说,另只肯定给河了。

J. F. Kennedy was the 35th President of the United States. He was born in Brooklyn, Massachusetts, in 1917. His father was Ambassador to England who was exposed to politics at an early age. Kennedy decided to enter the political arena and he ran for Congress from Massachusetts. He was elected to the Senate in 1953 with the term ended in 1960. Later, he was elected to President that same year at the age of 43, so he became the first Roman Catholic President and the youngest man ever to occupy the presidency. He had planned to run again in the 1964 election year. But unfortunately, he was assassinated on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. Though Kennedy served America for such a short time, he had inspired people all over the free world because of his youth, his spirit and his style.

While human capacity for language has a genetic basis,we were all born with the ability to acquire language, the details of any language system are not genetically transmitted, but instead have to be taught and learned.Language is passed on from one generation to the next through teaching and learning, rather than by instinct.1It was why we learn mother language so easy and perplex by foreign language.So the problem called language barrier always bothers a lot of people,We stayed at our country,lived with our culture,but have to learn a language used in a place where far away from you.We just used it at school,and when you back home,there was no reason to drop your mother language away. For example,the child did not need to learn a foreign language any more,because everyone used the same language in the world.So kids owned more time to learn other things which was more useful to them,so our educational level would be promoted .If one lose his way at a foreign country,he did not need to make a gesture to others or call the police,because he could talked with the local people and easily understand the guideboard.,so our journey can be more easy.This is just some examples about daily life ,and was only a small part that world language could bring you.At science ,culture and economic.,the elimination of language barriers could concentrate more human's wise and gave it better used. We communicate more with other countries, the relationships between us will be closer.The world could enter a new era by the world language.All of this seems so perfect,but the truth is cruel,it was really not a good idea.I can give several reasons to support my idea. The main challenge we have to faced was the difficulty about how we could create a worldwide used and accepted language .There was about 5 or 6 thousands languages around the world ,how complicated it was!
