Storyboard Text

  • The adage goes: coffee stunts growth. Twelve grapes on New Year’s: the opposite.Advice from the learned: hide a book under your pillow. Never step on. Never drop.
  • If you go to bed hungry, your soul will get up and steal cold rice from the pot.Stop playing with fire before the moon rises or you’ll pee in your sleep.
  • Sweeping the floor after dark sweeps wealth and good fortune out the door.Fork dropped: a gentleman will visit. Spoon: a bashful lady.
  • Every rice grain that remains on your plate you’ll meet again on the footpathto heaven. You’ll have to stoop to pick each one of them up.
  • Bathing after you’ve cooked over a hot stove makes the veins swell.For safe passage to the guest who leaves mid-meal: turn your plate.
