Don't eat alone


Beberapa bulan lepas, saya ingat lagi..

Ada seorang kawan kami tengah makan something dalam kelas.
Sorang-sorang dia.
Orang lain semua tengah buat kerja lain. 

Then, sorang kawan Arab tegur:
" Kau tengah makan apa tu?  Tak nak bagi kami sikit ke? "

Tak sempat yang tengah makan menjawab,
kawan Arab tu sambung lagi

" Kau tahu tak pepatah Arab ada cakap  !الي بياكلوا لحالو بزور  "

tersedak terus orang yang tengah makan tu. haha.

kami yang dengar pun tergelak sama. 

Tahu apa maksudnya? - He who eat alone, he'll choke to death -

Pergh, menakutkan!

Agaknya sebab tu la kot orang Arab ni suka offer makanan mungkin? 

(lepas ni kalau ada yang teringin nak rasa makanan kawan tapi tak dipelawa, maybe boleh mintak berlapik sambil guna peribahasa ni )



Terbaca cerita ni dalam facebook.  Orang share. Menarik.  Jemput sama. 

 This story will warm you better than a coffee in a cold winter day !

We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we're aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter :
'Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended'
They pay for their order, take the two and leave. I ask my friend:
'What are those 'suspended' coffees ?'
'Wait for it and you will see'
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four 'suspended'. While I still wonder what's the deal with those 'suspended' coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
'Do you have a suspended coffee ?'

It's simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? 
If you own a business why don't you offer it to your clients...I am sure many of them will like it :)
