Bày hoa trên bàn thờ: Cần tránh những điều này nếu không muốn phạm đại kỵ

đừng nhầm lấy 'đồ chơi tình dục' (quà tặng của công ty cũ cho cháu) làm lọ hoa cúng cho bà ngoại (vừa mất năm ngoái)... :D

Twitter user @koniy0805 visited to his grandfather’s home for the first time in a while. Just as he was about to pay respects (tỏ lòng kính trọng; cúng, vái) to his grandmother, who passed away last year, he noticed the Tenga he received as a gift from his previous job.

...After doing some investigation (xem xét), @koniy0805 discovered that his grandfather had torn a hole on top of the Tenga to fit the flowers in. The young man felt uncomfortable  (cảm thấy không thoải mái) seeing the sex toy placed beside the picture of his departed (quá cố) grandmother. He immediately disposed of the Tenga without telling his grandfather what the object was really for.

While most netizens were curious about how the grandfather confused the male sex toy for a vase, one Twitter user noted that the company had once offered a Tenga vase as a promotional tie-in for its toy.

Ông ngoại dễ tính

cho cháu chơi điện thoại, biết cả mật khẩu tài khoản tiền để mua thức ăn,

và đã sốc khi bị mất toàn bộ lương hưu gần 140 triệu vnd vì cháu tip và mua quà tặng... gái xinh trên mạng :D

...Li then checked his bank transactions records and discovered that almost all of his money had been paid to live-streaming app iQiyi in the span of three days.

...“He likes to play on my mobile phone and knows the password to my online cash account,” Li was quoted as saying.

He said he gave the pin number (mật khẩu) to his grandson so he could pay for food on his own. Li admitted (thừa nhận) that he rarely supervises (chẳng mấy khi giám sát) the child’s transactions online.

Li, who lives with his daughter and son-in-law, revealed that the 40,000 yuan in his bank was his retirement income (thu nhập từ lương hưu) for the entire year (trong cả năm).

After the family reported the case to iQiyi, the company conducted an investigation (điều tra) and said it would offer a refund to the grandfather. Since Xiaowei is deemed a minor in China, he has limited civil conduct capacity.

"World without end" nghĩa là gì?

'World without end' = vĩnh viễn, mãi mãi.

Ví dụ
But in Nigeria, nothing, except death, is guaranteed (đảm bảo). The popular prayer phrase (cụm từ cầu nguyện phổ biến) among some Christians - "as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end," best describes the violence (bạo lực), intimidation (dọa dẫm), arson (đốt phá) and killings often witnessed across Nigeria during elections (bầu cử). Like all the previous elections the February 23 election was characterised by violence and vote rigging (gian lận).

In a kinder, gentler time, the review of “framework legislation” (luật khung) governing the financial sector was a decennial (mười năm) exercise, then it became a five-year review. Pushed still more by the pace of change, this review has become a rolling one, the financial services equivalent of a world without end.

Even then, my mom was never proud of me. I never planned on having children because of what I went through growing up, but now I'm pregnant (mang thai) and I love this little human world without end and I'm already in fear of my child being around people, even my own relatives (họ hàng).

"Citizen of the world" nghĩa là gì?

'Citizen of the world' là người có thể thấy thoải mái, dễ thích nghi ở bất kỳ đất nước nào; công dân toàn cầu.

Ví dụ
"Our guests tell us the environment (môi trường) is important, so it's a big deal for us," explained Mark Penning, vice president of Disney's Animals, Science and Environment in a 2018 interview, adding that the company wants to be admired "not just for creating incredible content, but for being a responsible citizen of the world."

Burness considers himself a citizen of the world. “The world is interesting, so while I’m alive I have to live,” he said.

‘as a “citizen of the world”, I think Brexit is an enormous mistake (sai lầm),’ she says, ‘I couldn’t let Theresa May’s deal be voted through without having my constituents (cử tri)’ views represented.’

Bích Nhàn

Làm sao dạy con?

Cả nhà ngồi xung quanh bàn ăn trong bữa tối. Đứa con trai nhỏ ngồi chọc dĩa, không chịu ăn. Ông bố bực mình quát:
- Ăn đi chứ. Không chịu ăn thì “con chim” làm sao mà lớn được?

Cô vợ:
- Không phải quát nó. Bản thân anh hãy cố mà ăn.

Bài trước: Như giông như bão

Cứ xem đó như trò đùa

cô dâu bắt các phù dâu phải kiểm tra qua máy nói dối, sau khi thông tin về cân nặng (để may áo cưới) bị rò rỉ :D
-----

A bride has disowned one of her closest pals after details of her weight-bassed wedding dress (áo cưới dựa trên cân nặng) code were leaked (rò rỉ, lộ ra).

The furious (giận dữ, điên tiết) woman made all of her bridesmaids take a lie detector test after seeing the details had been shared widely online.

During the test one of her friends admitted (thú nhận) sharing the screengrab on social media, and the bride quickly "removed her from the property".
