Podcast Transcript

大家好!欢迎回来MaoMi Chinese。你们喜欢地摊小吃吗?在中国很多地方,地摊小吃非常流行。地摊小吃特别便宜,选择也很多,很多人都喜欢买地摊小吃,包括我。我在读大学的时候,大学附近有各种各样的地摊小吃,我和我的朋友们都很喜欢去买地摊小吃。在中国摆地摊一个月能赚多少钱呢?会比白领更多吗?我们今天一起去探索一下。

不管是在中国的城市,或者农村,你都能看到地摊小吃。在有些城市里,还有夜市一条街。在这条街上,满满的都是各种各样的地摊小吃:烧烤,炒饭,炒面,甜品,炸鸡,地方美食,甚至还能看到牛排……只有你想不到的,没有你吃不到的。在中国,地摊小吃为什么会这么流行呢?最重要的原因是它们很便宜。因为摆地摊不需要交租金,所以地摊小吃都特别便宜。5元一份的炒饭或者炒面,10元一串的烤大鱿鱼,你甚至可以只花20元,就能吃到一份牛排。对于很多每个月收入只有几千元人民币的大多数人来说,对于很多学生来说,吃地摊小吃很划算。但是,地摊小吃和饭馆不一样,大多数都没有桌子椅子,所以客人只能打包带走。当然,一些地摊小吃也没有饭馆那么干净卫生,因为食物都是在地摊主人的家里准备好的。如果你对食物卫生要求比较高,那么地摊小吃可能不是最好的选择。

那么,在中国摆地摊能赚多少钱呢?最近,有人采访了一个在深圳摆地摊,卖臭豆腐的大叔。深圳是中国最发达的城市之一。臭豆腐呢,是中国湖南长沙的一种小吃,也是毛泽东很喜欢的小吃。臭豆腐闻起来很臭,但是吃起来很香。好了,有一点跑题了。我们回到这位摆地摊的大叔。他说,在深圳摆地摊卖臭豆腐,他每个月能赚两万块。在深圳,普通的白领一个月大概只有一万多人民币。可能有很多人会羡慕大叔赚很多钱,但是其实他每一天都非常辛苦。我们来听一听他是怎么说的:

“我每天白天一顿饭,晚上一顿饭。一天两顿饭。早上不吃了。因为早上凌晨四五点钟,五六点钟吃,吃了睡觉。然后把事做完了,就吃饭,吃饭了就准备出摊,出摊回来再吃一顿饭。”

听起来是非常累的一天。一般来说,他工作到凌晨四五点,甚至六点,才能结束工作,结束摆摊,回来吃饭。吃完饭了睡觉,睡醒了以后,做摆地摊的准备工作。大概到下午,做完事情了,他就可以准备出去摆地摊了,一直到第二天的凌晨。

所以呢,如果想要摆地摊赚很多钱,其实工作会非常辛苦。但是,在中国有很多这些愿意辛苦工作的人。他们为了他们的孩子,家庭,父母,都在辛苦地工作。我发自内心地尊重,尊敬他们。

Hello everyone. Welcome back to MaoMi Chinese. Do you like street food? In many places of China, street food is extremely popular. Street food is super cheap and you have lots of choices. Many people like buying street food, including me. When I was in the university, there are all kinds of street food near the university. My friends and I all liked going to buy street food. How much money people can make in a month from selling street food? Will it be more than what office workers can make? Let’s explore it today.

No matter you are city or village in China, you can always see street food. In some cities, there are also some streets for night markets. On the street, there are all kinds of street food. Barbeque, stir-fried rice, stir-fried noodles, desserts, deep-fried chicken, some local food, and you can even see steaks! There is only something out of your imagination and there is nothing you can’t eat. Why street food is so popular in China? The most important reason is that the food is very cheap. Because people don’t need to pay for rent, the food is especially cheap. You can have a portion of stir-fried rice or noodles for only 5 yuan, a skewer of big squid barbeque for 10 yuan. You can even only spend 20 yuan for a portion of steak. To most people whose income is only a few thousand RMB a month, to many students, street food is a good deal. However, street food is different from restaurants. Most of the street food stalls do not provide tables and chairs and therefore, customers can only do takeaway. Of course, some street food is not as hygienic as restaurant food, because food is prepared in the homes of food stall’s owners. If you have a strong request for food hygiene, then probably street food might not be the best choice.

So how much money people can make from selling street food? Recently there is someone interviewed a man who sells street food Stinky Tofu in Shenzhen. Shenzhen is one of the most developed cities in China. Stinky Tofu is a local food of Changsha, Hunan Province, China. It’s also the food that Mao Zedong liked. Stinky tofu smells stinky and tastes very nice. All right… I am a bit off-topic. Let’s come back to the man who sells street food. He said that by selling street food stinky tofu in Shenzhen he can make 20 thousand yuan every month. In Shenzhen, normal office workers make more than 10 thousand a month. Maybe lots of people will feel jealous that he makes so much money, but in fact his every day is extremely hard. Let’s listen to what he said:

“Every day I have a meal in the daytime and another one in the evening. 2 meals every day. I don’t eat in the morning. Because I eat in the early morning at about 4, 5 or 6 o’clock. After food, I go to sleep. Then I finish the stuff (food preparation), then I eat my meal. After the meal, I get ready for going out to sell food. After that, I come back to have another meal.”

Sounds like an extremely tiring day. Generally speaking, he worked until 4 or 5 or even 6 in the early mornings to finish his work, finish selling street food, then he comes back for his meal. After his meal, he goes to sleep. When he wakes up he does his food preparation. In the afternoon he finishes everything, then he is ready to sell street food until the early morning of the next day.

Therefore, if people would like to make money from selling street food, their work would be very hard. However, there are many people who would like to do this hard job. They work hard for their children, families and parents. I respect and appreciate them from the bottom of my heart.
