When making noodles, the Cantonese use bamboo while those in the Central Plains apply a rolling pole. Making dough is a skill that girls in the Central Plains must master. Noodles for breakfast and a banquet in the noon is the custom in Ding Village when people hold a birthday feast. To celebrate her husband's 70th birthday, Madame Wai got up early to prepare the flour food. The noodles are called longevity noodles. Why Chinese people eat noodles on their birthdays? How did noodles become the symbol of longevity? It is said that the shape of noodle is both long and slim. In Putonghua, long (chang) and slim (shou) is similar to the pronunciation of longevity (changshou). Noodles are the most popular staple food on birthdays for the Chinese.

同样是做面,广东人用毛竹,中原人则用的是擀面杖。擀面,是中原女孩子成长中必须要掌握的生活技艺。早面午席是丁村人做寿请客的习俗。为了老伴的70大寿,卫大妈早早地就为宴席上要吃的面食做起了准备。中国人称这碗面叫长寿面。为什么中国人过生日要吃面?面条是怎么成为中国人贺寿的象征呢?有一个说法是,面的形状长而瘦,谐音长寿,面条于是当仁不让地成为讲究讨口彩的中国人最受欢迎的生日主食。

At the birthday banquet in Ding Village, a ritual requiring the participation of all people is ongoing. Before eating the noodles, all the people pick out the longest noodle in their bowl and put it into the bowl of the one who celebrates the birthday. When be eats the bowl with all the long noodles carrying the villagers' best wishes, a birthday banquet can be regarded as complete.

在丁村人的寿宴上,一项必须由全村人共同完成的仪式正在进行。吃面之前,挑出一根最长的放在寿星公的碗里,要等他吃下这碗带着全村人寓意长命百岁祝福的面条,一场寿宴才算圆满。
