Later, walking by a pigpen
Morley: Oh my God! Look at the size of that pig!
Kathy: Oh, that's a temple pig. Farmers overfeed them so they'll grow big and fat for the hundred-year-old pig contest.
Morley: That pig must weigh nearly 600 kilograms. What's this contest? [snaps a picture]
Kathy: The largest pig is sacrificed in front of a temple on an important Hakka festival called Yimin Day.
Morley: Poor pig. But I guess the meat all gets eaten, right?
Kathy: Of course. Hakka people would never waste that much meat.

(续上期)

稍后,走过一个猪舍
莫理:我的天啊!你看那只猪有多大!
卡西:喔,那是神猪。农夫喂他们吃很多,才能长得又大又肥参加百年神猪比赛。
莫理:那只猪一定差不多有六百公斤重。这是什么比赛啊?(拍照)
卡西:最大的猪会在义民节这个重要的客家节日当天在庙前宰杀当作牲品。
莫理:可怜的猪。不过我想猪肉都会被吃光,对吧?
卡西:当然。客家人绝对不会浪费这么多肉的。


重点解说:

★ pigpen (n.) 猪圈;temple pig hundred-year-old pig contest 百年神猪比赛
★ overfeed (v.) 给…吃的太多
★ snap (v.) 给……什么拍照
★ sacrifice (v.) 供奉,献祭

  <播放语音>

Q: Is breakfast the most important meal of the day?
A: Yes. Fasting overnight lowers the body's level of glucose (blood sugar), which is needed to produce the brain chemicals that keep us focused throughout the day. Breakfast brings those blood sugar levels back up to normal, and helps our bodies wake up so we don't feel sluggish. Those who eat breakfast report feeling more alert, less depressed, less irritable and less restless during the day. They are more productive at work in the morning, too.

问:早餐是一天中最重要的一顿饭吗?
答:是的。一晚上的空腹使人体内的葡萄糖(血糖)含量下降,葡萄糖是产生脑部化学物质使我们一整天都精力集中的必需物质。早餐使我们的血糖恢复正常,帮助我们的身体苏醒过来,不感到懒怠。那些吃早餐的人都说在白天他们感觉反应更加敏锐,较少沮丧、急躁和不安,上午工作效率也更高。
