    519,我们家迎来了尊贵的客人——佩妮·韦顿和苏珊·盖尔女士。

下午510分,佩妮·韦顿校长结束了一天的访问,苏珊·盖尔女士以巡视员的身份也来到我校。我邀请佩妮·韦顿和苏珊·盖尔女士到我家做客,随行的还有教育局接待本次访问团的翻译(市教育局英语教研员)李季老师,我们学校的刘子元、周淑芳和苏勇进老师。教育局王卫国主任和刘文军老师原定也要参加的,因为急于处理公务临时取消了。

 

走进小区一下电梯就看见爱人凤娟和女儿钰仪敞开大门在门口迎接了,我们说不要换鞋,可佩妮·韦顿和苏珊·盖尔女士执意换了拖鞋才走进客厅。进了客厅,佩妮·韦顿和苏珊·盖尔女士很礼貌地坐在沙发上,凤娟和钰仪在淑芳的翻译下交谈起来,钰仪偶尔也用英语与佩妮·韦顿和苏珊·盖尔女士聊天,看得出,她们很喜欢孩子,一身母亲的亲切和老师的关爱。

 为了做好这次接待,我早早地通过网络查询和向朋友询问的方式了解英国朋友的饮食习惯,这几天与佩妮一道吃饭特别留意她的饮食喜好,我发现佩妮·韦顿校长的食量很小(真羡慕佩妮·韦顿校长:吃这么一点点也能长这么高个),更爱吃生态食品。前一天晚上就联系了五个外卖:蜜汁叉烧、西芹百合腰果、鲍鱼汁扣豆腐、上汤海草和香芋西米煲,请弟弟做水晶狮子球、凉拌萝卜丝,还擀了几十张馄饨皮子,这些都在下午530分送到家里。凤娟平时经常干煎马鲛鱼,我觉得味道不比餐厅师傅差,另外听营养师说“女人不可一天无豆”,加上这几天天气特别热(佩妮·韦顿校长也说“hotvery hto!”),就做了凉瓜黄豆炖排骨汤(苦就苦点吧,味道服从营养)。这一切,凤娟请假一天已经安排妥帖了,就等我们回来享用。

 佩妮·韦顿和苏珊·盖尔女士与子元、淑芳、凤娟、钰仪等倾谈得很投入,我还是很不礼貌地打断她们说:“我们来包馄饨吧。”佩妮·韦顿和苏珊·盖尔女士一听,立刻围靠在桌边,伸手拿起一张皮子饶有兴致地试着包起来。我毫不谦虚地做“师傅”,一边示范一边告诉大家我的馄饨情愫:“江苏南通地区的大年三十和年初一家家户户都会准备好这样的馄饨拿来应节,形状像元宝,象征着团圆和财富,被誉为‘每年最后一顿饭’和‘来年的第一顿饭’,爸爸把它从江苏带到了江西,我把它从江西带来珠海,希望苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士把它从中国带到英国。”淑芳与子元分别为苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士讲解,苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士学得很认真,一个比一个包的好。我忽然觉得,除了语言外和肤色外,苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士与中国人没有什么区别,也许是“世界更中国,中国更世界”的缘故吧,在越来越多人认为“世界是平的”今天,包容、友善、尊重、学习、进步是我们应有的品质,苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士为我做了榜样。

 凤娟准备的饮料有橙汁、雪碧和可乐,我准备了蜂酒、红酒、米酒、高度白酒,还有轩尼诗。我问大家喝点什么,李季老师说:苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士也能喝点白酒,我一听正合我意,高度白酒里有更多中国酒文化的因子,我连忙取出53度郎酒,给各位倒上大半两,苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士也不例外。我们不停地举杯交流,其乐融融。苏珊·盖尔女士的脸慢慢地泛红了,我担心她不能承受高度白酒的威力,请李季老师告诉苏珊·盖尔说白酒不能喝可以换别的饮料,可苏珊说:“这样不好,对主人不礼貌。”我反复强调没关系,可苏珊·盖尔女士还是坚持喝完。佩妮·韦顿女士则面不改色,看来挺有酒量的,可我给她添酒时,她摆动双手示意“no”,说明天还要工作,不可以多喝。当我给佩妮·韦顿女士倒上可乐时,她高兴得拍起掌来,就像活力青年。我又给苏珊·盖尔女士倒可乐,她可不要,我为她倒茶,她就很高兴。最让我感动是,苏珊·盖尔和佩妮·韦顿女士不忘向忙着拍照并为我们开车的勇进老师敬酒表示感谢!

 我们的晚餐持续到845分,临走前,她们给凤娟和钰仪送礼物,为今天准备晚餐表示感谢。我们一家和所有老师把她们送到德汉酒店,还依依不舍。

 

Mrs. Penny Wetton visit to Jinding No.1 Primary School

Unforgettable Supper

    We invited our honorable guests – Mrs. Penny Wetton and Mrs. Susan Gale to our home for dinner on May 19th2010.

Mrs. Susan Gale arrived at our school for a visit at 5:10 while Mrs. Penny Wetton just finished her today’s visit at our school. I invited Susan and Penny to my home for dinner, accompanied by Mr. Li Ji , an interpreter from Zhuhai Educational Bureau , Liu Ziyuan( Amada ) , Zhou Shufang ( Christine) and Su Yongjin , teachers from our school. Mr. Wang Weiguo and Mrs. Liu Wenjun from Zhuhai Educational Bureau had to cancel the plan to my home because of the something urgent.

After entering my garden building, out of the lift, I found my dear wife and daughter welcoming us in front of the door. We told Penny and Susan that they did not need to wear the slippers before going into the living room. But they insisted on it. They sat on the sofa in the living room politely . My wife Fengjuan and my daughter Yuyi talked with Penny and Susan with the help of Christine. Yuyi can talk to Penny and Susan in English occasionally. We can see both of them love children very much. We can feel that is the love and care from a mother and a teacher.  

I have got everything ready for the dinner before hand. I surfed the net for more information about English people’s diet. I asked my friends who have ever been to England for more information. And I paid more attention to Penny’s diet while staying with her these two days. I noticed that she ate less food . ( How much I envy her! How can she grow so strong and big but eat so little). She loves eating green food and home grown food. I got ready for five special dishes : Honey roast pork( Cha Siu), a plate of mixture of celery , lilies and cashew nut, Tofu with abalone juice, seaweed with chicken soup , a bowl of taro and western rice. My brother helped me cook the crystal lion head ( pork ball covered with rice), cold shredded radish. My brother got the dumpling wrappers ready. Everything was ready before we got home at 5:30. My wife Fengjuan fried the fish . It was more delicious than that the chef in big restaurant I think. As the weather was very hot these days,  ( Penny always said “It is so hot, hot.”). My wife cooked a special soup with beans, steak and a Chinese melon. It is really a very nice soup for Penny and Susan in the hot weather. In order to do all this well, my wife had to ask for a day off to make this arrangement. She just wanted us all to enjoy the dinner.

Penny, Susan, Amanda, Christine, my wife and my daughter communicated happily.  I interrupted them and said: “Let’s make Wontons(a kind of dumplings), OK?”. Penny and Susan sat at the table in a moment. Each one took a piece of Wonton wrapper and tried to wrap. Aha, I was their teacher at that time. I talked about my feeling of Wontons when I gave the model of making Wontons. I said: “In Nantong area of Jiang Su Province in China, every family would prepare such Wontons to spend the Spring Festival on Lunar New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. They look like Chinese ancient money named Silver Piece. So they symbolize the reunion and the wealth. And they will be honored as ` last food in this year ' and ` the first food in the coming year.' My father brought them from Jiangsu Province to Jiangxi Province. And I brought them from my hometown to Zhuhai . I hope Penny and Susan are able to bring Wontons to England.” Amanda and Christine helped me to explain how to wrap them. Penny and Susan studied hard. They made better and better. Suddenly, I thought Penny and Susan were almost the same with Chinese people, except the language and the skin colour. Perhaps it is “The world will be like China, China will be more like the world.”. More and more people think “The world is flat”. Today, tolerance, friendliness, respect, studying and progress are our proper qualities. Penny and Susan set the good example for me.

Fengjuan have prepared some drinks: orange juice, sprite and Cola. I have prepared bee wine, red wine, rice wine, hard liquor, but also Hennessy. I asked: “What would you like to drink?”  Mr. Li told me, Susan and Penny can drink a little hard liquor. Oh, great! I would like them to drink it. Because there is some Chinese culture in the hard liquor. So I took out 53 degree Lang alcohol and gave some for each one. We talked and drank happily. After a while, Susan’s face turned red. I worried about her. Then I asked Mr. Li to tell Susan, if she can’t drink more hard liquor, she can change another drink. But Susan answered: “That’s not so good. It’s impolite to the host.”  So Susan insisted to drinking up. But Penny drank the hard liquor without turning a hair. It seemed she can drink more, Aha! When I wanted to let her drink more, she shook both hands and said “No. I have to work tomorrow. I can’t drink any more.”  It’s so right! So I gave her Cola, she was glad to clap her hands, just like a youth. I liked to give some Cola to Susan, but she didn’t like it. And she was very glad to drink tea. What made deep impression on me is that Penny and Susan didn’t forget to cheer with Mr. Su Yongjin who was busy taking photos and drove for them.

 We didn’t finish our supper until 8:45p.m. Before they left my house, Penny and Susan gave the presents to my wife and my daughter which expressed their thanks for the dinner. All the teachers and my family accompanied them to Zhuhai Dehan Hotel. Then we left reluctantly. That was really a wonderful night.
