Penghu Folks/澎湖人

昨晚新聞挖挖哇說是為了彌補博奕公投沒過,而介紹澎湖以鼓勵觀光。其中一位來賓,小花,是澎湖人。他說澎湖人都很愛鄉。有不少人飛回去參與公投。雖然人都出外打拼,但是祖厝寧可放著讓他壞也絕對不賣。

媽告訴我,外祖父說,澎湖人雖然窮,但是很努力,很聰明。當年他們來臺灣打拼時,每個人都帶把秤。到臺灣後,先去魚市場用從家鄉帶出來的一點錢買魚,然後蹲在路邊賣。賺到錢後,再去買更多的魚,越賣越多。存到本錢後,再去做其他的生意。

Last night, a talk show was promoting tourism in Penghu Islands. One of the guests is a Penghu native. He says people of Penghu love their home town. Although most people have moved out of the town, very few people are willing to sell their houses passed down from their ancestors.

Mom told me that grandpa's comment on Penghu folks. He said although they were poor, they were smart and hard working people. When they left Penghu for Taiwan, every one of them carried a scale. Upon arrival, they headed to the fish market to buy fishes with the little money they had. Then they sold the fish in the city by the side walk. They kept going back to the market to buy more fish. Once sufficient fund had been accumulated, they moved on to other businesses.
