chinese fortune cookie

Do you like fortune cookie? I don’t mind getting one after a Chinese meal, it is entertaining to open one up and read what it contains. You get some words of wisdom, a Chinese word translation and the most important of all, the lottery number. Have you ever wondered how they stuff this small piece of paper in each cookie? I am. How do they do it? Must be a tedious process to insert these pieces of paper inside the cookie as well as coming up with those words of wisdom and random numbers.

One afternoon, I bought lunch from a Chinese restaurant for take out and as expected there is a fortune cookie wrapped in plastic. I usually crack the cookie and eat the cookie itself and read what’s in the paper. Honestly, I think I have tried using the number in the lottery. Guess what, I did not win.

This time, I kept the cookie in the plastic wrapper and thought of just saving it. Afterwards, during some down time at work I thought of taking a picture then I realized I have a cookie. What I did was take the cookie out of the plastic wrapper and cracked it and set it on my desk like the way you see in this picture. I had my camera set wide open to blur everything out but the cookie. You will probably notice though that even some part of the cookie was soft or blurry.

Well, the word of wisdom may work well for all who have temper issues: “When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry then a hundred.”
