fortune cookie 001

Youtube is one of the popular sites for killing time. My favorites are the “Just for laugh” gag clips from Montreal. I was a little surprised when I found some crafty clips. Ya, there are some. The “crocheted fortune cookies” is one of these interesting clips. It’s so simple that I must try immediately.The paper was from a real fortune cookie I got last week from the Chinese restaurant here. It says “Sie werden in eine hohe Position aufsteigen./You are going to be promoted”. What a good one! 🙂

Fortune cookie did not originate from China. As a matter of fact, I’ve never heard of such things before I left China. The Chinese restaurant I worked for in Montreal only offers fortune cookies to non-Chinese customers. My ex-roommate used to make a fool of himself when he had lunch with his labmates in a Chinese fast-food restaurant. Since he had no idea about the paper inside fortune cookies, he almost ate the paper. He told me his labmates looked at him as if he was a monster at the moment. What a pity…..:-D
