The story of PLA officer based in Tibet who prepared an assortment of home-made cuisines and snacks for his wife before returning to his troops has lit up Chinese social media sites, where netizens have gave a thumbs up for the affectionate husband.
Yin Yunfeng, a military officer stationed in the Tibet Autonomous Region, returns home once in a year. Yin’s wife, surnamed Zhang, is a middle school teacher in Guizhou province, who only has a little time for a lunch break.
According to Tencent, Yin cooked all of the dishes, made nearly one thousand dumplings, packed them in freezer bags and stored them in the fridge for his wife one week ahead of his leaving.
After a few days after Yin left, he would send her text messages to tell her where she could find a certain snack.
Each package of snacks is accompanied with a handwritten note.
A note reads, “Hopefully, when you finish eating this, I can go home. from Brother Chao. March 27.”
Yin Yunfeng hides snacks all around the home for his wife, in a bid to make a big surprise for her.
On April 9, Zhang received a message from Yin, reading, “As you’re so engaged in your reading today, I want to give you an award for it. Check the back of the sofa in the sitting room, there is a pack of raisin.”
Zhao told reporters that she has quite a tight class schedule every day, so she can’t afford the time to cook herself a good lunch unless her husband cooks for her during his annual leave.
With the various kinds of food stuffed in the fridge, she can just warm anything she wants in the microwave when she needs to eat.
“I didn’t really anticipate we would be parting for months every year before I got married to him, but I support his work. My heart feels warm when I see all this food he’s prepared for me.” Zhang added.
