"The art of Noodle Making"

FILM A Simple Noodle Story (2009)  三枪拍案惊奇
Wang is a gloomy and cunning noodle shop owner in a desert town in China. Feeling neglected, Wang's wife secretly goes out with his employee, Li. A timid man, Li reluctantly keeps the gun the landlady bought for "killing her husband later." However, not a single move they make escapes the boss's notice, and he decides to bribe patrol officer Zhang to kill the illicit couple. Based on the motion picture 'Blood Simple'.

'Long Life' Noodles
Chinese families traditionally eat noodles on birthday celebrations. Long Noodles symbolize a long unbroken life in Chinese tradition, so eating Noodles on your birthday ensures a long life throughout the future. Because of this, the noodles are, both during preparation and consumption, never cut or shortened. Cutting the Noodles into shorter strands would symbolically shorten your life.
