Today is the first day of the new lunar new year…
From Sina Weibo:
@大象去旅行: [Lunar] New Year’s Eve, Kentucky Fried Chicken [KFC], this is what is known as close friends… though there is an indescribable sadness…
From Sina Weibo:
Actually, seeing this kind of scene, my heart hesitated for a moment. Then I consoled myself, that it is not because they do not have children…that it is not because they don’t have people to be with…that they are not sad people. They are just mischievous now that they are old, that they wanted to be willful this Spring Festival, didn’t want to be traditional… it must be…
I’m a bit heartbroken, a bit sad. Elderly, happy new year.
I only see the smile on their faces, and that’s enough…
Really, my nose is aches [want to cry], what I hate seeing most is the elderly in this kind of situation…
Original poster, you were eating KFC for Chinese New Year as well?
Maybe it was four people…
Actually, was is there for viewers to be sad about? Is being with descendents the only one way one can be considered not alone? Aren’t there three of them? And it’s not like you can tell how they feel in their hearts from a photo. Who knows, maybe they’re happy as heck. You people being sad is nothing more than projecting onto the three old ladies.
Being able to be with good friends eating a Family Bucket, without having to watch the Spring Festival Gala, without having to see one’s elders, without having to be pressured to get married, without people asking about your income, about houses and cars, about plans for the future, isn’t that much better than us?
Could this be an advertisement?
The person taking the photo is even more tragic…alone at KFC on Lunar New Years Eve secretly taking pictures of old grandmas.
