Village lady: Nice
job, President. Do you have the same red
paper on the gate of your Middle-South Sea
Chinese President and CCP
Chief Hu Jintao traveled to greet villagers
on Chinese New Year's Eve's eve and the Eve,
including those at a village in Hebei Province where
he stuck a red paper marked with Chinese blessing
character on the front door of a village lady.
Decorating the front gate with this auspicious
character is a time honoured custom in China,
a literature oriented nation.
President Hu inspected
the old lady's kitchen to check how her
steam-bun job is done.
Traditionally Chinese would
cook buns, rice and all other dishes before New Year's Eve Dinner that would be enough to consume
during the first week or so in the new year to
symbolise that the last year's food is abundant
for the next year.
Comrades in hands
The village lady is a Chinese
Communist Party member who believes in common
wealth and fairness for everyone in the nation.
