同事之中有個係唔食肉嘅, 所以前日破天荒搞搞新意思, 我哋去齋館食咗圍齋宴作開工酒..
● 我: 「我哋要個三文魚生, 蟹肉魚翅, 臘味炒飯, 酥炸田雞, 亞參魚..」
● 侍應姐姐: 「請問個亞參魚要鯧魚定鱈魚呢??」
● 我: 「咁要鱈魚啦, 我怕鯧魚味腥..」@_@"
we have a fellow colleague who doesn't eat meat, so for the very first time we all went to a vegetarian restaurant and have a totally meatless CNY dinner..
■ me: "we'll have salmon yee sang, shark's fin soup, sausage fried rice, assam fish.."
■ waitress: "for the assam fish, would you prefer a pomfret or a cod??"
i was stunned for three seconds by this sudden available choice..
■ me: "ok, give us cod then, i'm afraid of the pomfret fishy smell.." @_@"
相信大家都聽過「齋口唔齋心」呢句說話, 以上一番對話就係最佳例子.. 我自問係個絕對食肉獸, 偶然間食齋係可以接受.. 但係對於一啲口口聲聲話食素, 但係喜好偏就向呢啲肉類齋料嘅朋友, 我就有啲唔認同囉.. 唔該分清楚素同齋嘅分別, 我個人認為食素係更高層次, 唔係止于口慾上, 而係連心態上都一樣要奉行..
i'm sure many have heard the saying "vegetarian at the mouth but not from the heart", the conversation above is definitely a good example.. i admit i am a very devoted carnivore, hence an occasional meatless meal is totally acceptable for me.. to some people that claim they are vegetarian, but inclined at eating meat-resembling vegetarian food, i somehow feel not right.. i think there's a difference between meatless and vegetarian, to me vegetarian is of a higher level cultivation - not about what you eat, but more importantly about what you choose to eat..
