Dream of Eating Spring Roll/夢見吃潤餅

這幾天大啖臺灣古早味美食。剛剛跟媽媽說,我這幾天吃的,除了沒吃到蚵仔煎外,都是我在加拿大時最想吃的東西。

我媽說,她的七叔在二次世界大戰時,被征召到南洋當兵。大家都想家,但是都忍住不哭。有天晚上,他夢見吃潤餅,不禁驚醒,號啕大哭。其他人受其感染,也放聲大哭,一面哭一面罵他。

These days, I have been having the time of my life by enjoying Taiwanese traditional dishes. I just told my mom that, except not yet having oyster omlette, I had been having those dishes I missed the most when I was in Canada.

Mom said her 7th uncle was drafted to fight in South Pacifics during WWII. Everyone was homesick, but kept to himself. No one cried. One night, he dreamt of eating Spring Roll. He woke up crying aloud. The cry was contagious, and the rests began to cry as well. They all blame him for making them cry.

PS: In Taiwan, Spring Roll is the dish for Tomb Sweeping Festival enjoyed with families. Normally, the day is on April 5th of Solar Canlendar.
