Example text

Five to six wood planks covered the opening once fuel was placed inside and were removed when more fuel was needed (two days later) and to remove ash. In contrast, the yikang was built of adobe bricks and heated via an oven outside the room. A cavity was made under the yikang, so it could be heated with smoldering fuel from the oven.

My grandparents doted on all their grandchildren, which created a core harmony, despite numerous conflicts between grandparents, their sons, daughters-in-law, paternal aunts, and grandchildren. For example, when Grandmother's daughters came to visit, she allowed them to stay longer than she allowed her daughters-in-law to stay at their parents' homes. Grandmother secretly bought cloth for her unmarried daughters in the twelfth month so that they could make new clothes for themselves for the coming New Year.

I watched him from the roof of our house. I told Grandfather (Limusirang, 1924-1987) and he quickly barred the front gate. A few moments later a strong 'bang-bang' sounded at the gate. My family members listened quietly and motionlessly until the sound of the tapping walking stick faded away about twenty minutes later. I watched from the roof as the old man departed. I asked Mother (Saihua, b. 1945), why Grandfather would not let him enter. From her melancholy reply, I learned that this man, who had been Grandfather's friend for years and who had often visited, had done something unspeakable–a month before, he had gone to a Han 汉 Chinese home and had eaten donkey meat.
