Feb. 4, 2020 My parents came here before the Chinese New Year to celebrate with me here They intended to go back on the fifth or sixth day of the Chinese New Year But now they can’t We definitely should not go back We must not make trouble for our hometown The sun is shining upon Wuhan I believe the NCP outbreak will end soon Let’s make some dumplings Back at our hometown in North China we use giant porcelain basins to make doughs Yes, you’re right They are a lot handier Let me show you this I bought this a long time ago from online It’s supposed to be a base for flowerpots How do we call the thing to hold the dumplings? Is it a “grating”? It’s a “round straw cover” A “round straw cover” I’m so glad you are here If you weren’t here I wouldn’t even know how to prepare meals Tell me about it If I was home, I’d be so worried about you My mom is never a home person Back at home she’s the leader of the square-dancing team Now that she’s stuck indoors for so many days she’s sometimes bored, but she knows how to cheer herself up I think she’s performing traditional Chinese opera in the room Next, let’s enjoy “The Woman Prisoner Su San” performed by: My Mom Su San left Hong Tong County and came to the street Does it hide my belly? Yes, it does You are not wearing shoes, right? No. She’s wearing socks inside and shoe covers outside to make sure there’s no noise My mom is so pretty Such a pretty girl Ready, go Two more steps, right? Right Dad What are you doing, dad? We are going through a tough time that is not so lucky But this unexpected stay at home has provided me with a rare chance to be with my parents for such a long time I tried to remember the last time that we stayed together for so long like we’re doing right now That was ten years ago It is “powu” (the fifth day of Chinese New Year) today In our hometown in northern China people try not to go out on “powu” The whole family stay at home and have dumplings The roads around home are still blocked. That’s good, we must be very careful It’s for the sake of ourselves and others as well I hope we can get through this tough time as soon as possible Alright, the dumplings are ready 2020, defeat the NCP outbreak! Wuhan! Stay Strong! I never knew that I could be so close to my dad I’ve always considered him rather indifferent But now he’s so lively and joyful He’s making short videos with us and he’s showing a lot more interest than I imagined Do you want to do a funny skit together? I’m Hei Tu, and I’m having a toothache My dad is having a toothache When did it start? It started from yesterday The day before yesterday, in the afternoon Not so bad We are fully equipped with cotton padded coats and face masks Alright, let’s go Shall we try going out for a walk? Is it just that you have been staying in for too long? Maybe We’re almost there The pharmacy is open But they leave the door locked We have to talk from across the closed door like this to protect them and ourselves I think it’s a very good practice That’s it OK Do you have antiphlogistic calculi bovis pills? What about antiphlogistic calculi bovis tablets? Sometimes, I think to myself if only they didn’t come here If they were at home in Hebei it would be a lot safer for them To be honest I’m trying to keep them reassured every day I’m pretending that this NCP outbreak is not bothering me at all and that it’s nothing so serious because I don’t want them to be worried But in fact, deep down I am a little bit scared I’m afraid they might get hurt or something might happen to them It is “Lichun” today, the beginning of spring Let’s see what my mom is making We have a saying in our hometown A skewed calabash is an omen of “no calamity” A straight calabash is an omen of “no sickness” Is it skewed? Yeah, it’s a skewed calabash Where do I paste it? Put it here We have to paste it to the glass or the wall, right? We put one on the door as well It’s also a skewed one With a skewed calabash, “calamity” goes away Happiness is shared among us all Today, we’ve invited some friends from the old revolutionary
base areas in Jiangxi to our event I am a host I was living a very, very busy life Sometimes, I even find myself somehow restless This unexpected epidemic outbreak has given me the chance
to see the value of the family bond Also, it has provided me with time for myself to read, to think
and to reflect on myself It is a time for personal growth I think many people would be of the same mind After this NCP outbreak we will all become
a better version of ourselves Wuhan! Stay Strong!
