Miao Wei, with his strong imagination, experience and knowledge, and most importantly the mind of a “foodie”, wrote the stories about foodies. It vividly demonstrate the state of “I am hungry” and “I am full”. But this is not only writings about food. Master Miao actually presented a piece of bread with sociology connotations.
