Question: What is the difference between help from family members and help from friends?
Model Response: While these two kinds of help are quite similar in terms of coming from someone close to you, there are certain crucial differences between them. First, you can ask for help from your family members at any time, even after midnight, but you would not normally do that with your friends. Second, help from your friends is always of a short-term nature. I mean, you cannot expect even your closest buddy to give you help forever; you’ve got to stand up yourself.
Question: Do you think that some traditional food is going to be deserted by modern people?
Model Response: Yes, I think so. The preparation of some traditional food requires not only a very long time but also a lot of patience, both of which many modern people simply cannot afford. Most of the time, they prefer fast foods that can be finished in less than 5 minutes. This would change their eating habits, and they would lose their taste for a wide range of much finer foods of the world.
Question: Why do some families choose something to pass down?
Model Response: It’s a complicated question. I guess families choose to pass down something valuable or meaningful for various reasons. For example, some hand-made jewellery is usually passed down from grandmother to mother and then to the daughter as dowry when she is getting married in a traditional society. On the male’s side, the grandfather’s medal for bravery in the Second World War or a big trophy from a national sports competition is very likely to be handed down for many generations as an encouragement and inspiration for the offspring.
