Today my mum told me: 米桶空了。
In English, it means: the Rice Barrel is empty.
In modern times (like now), the first thing we think of is: Just go supermarket and buy, lah.... right?
To me, it meant otherwise.
However, did you actually know how rice come about?
Anyway, when the rice barrel is empty, to me it's like the family having no money.
Just like the rice barrel must be full during the Chinese New Year period, it should be full always.
Don't you agree?
