  原標題:73歲的中國奶奶,在紐約突然成了網紅!原因太暖心了……

  73歲的林奶奶也沒有料到,來到紐約的她,居然成爲了ins上的一名小“網紅”……

  下面這個看起來精神又慈祥的奶奶名叫林蘭(音譯),今年73歲了。

  這位來自廣東臺山的奶奶其實並不知道啥是ins,也根本玩不轉ins。

  只是,在她去了紐約之後,她的女兒Lisa時不時會將她做的菜拍攝下來,上傳到ins上。

  而這些菜,當然都是妥妥的中國美味……

  不僅如此,女兒還會拍林奶奶做菜的樣子。還會邀請林奶奶在做菜時當着鏡頭的面聊聊天,比如這是啥菜,怎麼做,有沒有什麼趣事兒等等……

  剛開始Lisa這麼拍來拍去,林奶奶還挺不解:你把這些發到網上,誰會看呀?

  Despite what her daughter tells her, Lan is not convinced that any of Lisa’s followers actually watch her videos。

  “Don’t you think it’s weird that people like watching an old lady, and hearing an old woman’s story?” she asks。 → “要真有人喜歡看個老阿姨絮絮叨叨才奇怪吧,你不覺得嗎?”

  結果,奶奶沒想到的事情發生了……

  Nevertheless, first-, second- and third-generation immigrants across the United States have rallied around the videos her daughter Lisa, 32, films as she cooks traditional Chinese dishes with her mother。

  結果,全美國各地第一、二、三代的移民們,都圍過來看32歲的Lisa拍的她和母親一起做中國菜了。

  林奶奶一下子變成了ins上的“網紅”。

  或許她自己並沒有料到,女兒給她拍的做菜視頻,實在是太戳海外遊子的心了:一個穿着圍裙的老奶奶,一邊做着好看又好吃的中國佳餚,一邊用家鄉話(台山話)絮絮叨叨地拉家常……

  As she cooks, she explains the recipe in Taishanese, the dialect she grew up speaking in Taishan, a city in south China’s coastal Guangdong province。 Lisa leans over her mother’s shoulder, recording the video on her phone。

  林奶奶一邊做飯,一邊用台山話解釋着菜譜。台山是中國南部沿海廣東省的一座城市,她就在那裏長大。女兒Lisa倚在母親肩上,用手機錄下了這段視頻。

  “I asked my mom how much rice is in here, and she said seven cups,” Lisa translates。 “But she apparently used this cup to measure it。”

  “我問媽媽這裏面有多少米飯,她說有七杯。” Lisa在視頻裏翻譯道。“顯然,她是用杯子來測量的。”

  “用杯子盛米”這種小細節,或許會讓從小在美國生長的移民二代三代們感到茫然。

  但對於他們懷揣着中國記憶的長輩來說,卻是一下子就戳到心坎兒了。

  這樣的人間煙火氣息太過美好,就像自己記憶中遠在故鄉的奶奶。

  黃皮膚的慈祥面孔,熟悉的家鄉菜,簡直太能撫慰人心了……

  They watch Lan’s videos for a sense of belonging, a reminder of grandmothers still in China, dishes they have not eaten since childhood, recipes they never thought to learn before moving across the world。

  他們通過看林奶奶的視頻來尋覓一種歸屬感,一種對遠在中國的祖母的牽掛。看着視頻,他們能想起那些童年後就沒再吃過的食物,以及在移居去世界各地之前從沒打算學的菜譜。

  林奶奶在ins上的粉絲們,也會時常在林奶奶的圖片視頻下面留言。

  或是稱讚,或是表達感激,或是借地思鄉……他們用這樣的方式,表白着自己的中國胃與中國心:

  Gillian Der, one of Lisa’s followers, could not believe what she was hearing when she first came across a video of Lan and Lisa chattering in Taishanese as they shaped and fried sesame balls。

  Lisa的一名粉絲名叫Gillian。當她第一次看到林奶奶和女兒一邊炸麻球、一邊用台山話聊天的視頻時,她簡直不敢相信自己的耳朵。

  “It meant so much that when I was watching those videos and seeing her make this food with her mom, I was also hearing these familiar sounds that I grew up with,” she says。

  “這對我來說太有意義了……我看着她和媽媽一起做菜的視頻時,也聽到了伴隨着我長大的熟悉口音。”

  Der, 22, was born and raised in Toronto, and only heard Taishanese spoken in her own home。 “Growing up, I didn’t have access to amazing cooks like Lisa’s mum, or even my own grandmother,” she says。

  另一名粉絲Der,今年22歲,在多倫多出生長大。之前她只在自己家裏聽到過台山話。“而且,長這麼大了我還從來沒見過做菜做得像Lisa媽媽這樣棒的人,就連和我奶奶做得一樣好的都沒遇到過。”

  “Now I can go to Lisa’s account and watch these videos and see her learning, and it reflects my own learning。 When I hear the language and when I see the beautiful food that those two make, it feels like home。”

  “現在我可以去Lisa的ins上看視頻,看她跟着她媽媽學做菜。這讓我也想起了我自己學做菜的時候。看着她倆做着美味佳餚,聽着熟悉的方言,我就像在自己家裏一樣。”

  就這樣,通過一個小小的ins賬號,一對有愛的母女,一些簡單又溫馨的視頻,林奶奶和女兒溫暖了數萬海外遊子。

  那是對親人的牽掛,對故土的思念。

  共懷中國心,天涯若比鄰。

  祝遠在海外的同胞們春節快樂!
