At today early morning, before I woke up from the bed. I dream very wonderfully. In my dream, there was a sym-

phony performed a few songs. And before the end, the music changed to be the ramwong style song, Ngam Seang

Duern. And then the host on stage invited the audients to dance in ramwong style with the girls who dressed in the

Thai traditional style, Hom Sabai Cheing. Most of the audiences so enjoyed themselves. And I woke up from the

dream with enjoyable.

In Life (as in an Omelet) You Need to 'Break Some Eggs'

In Life (as in an Omelet) You Need to 'Break Some Eggs'
 

Now, Words and Their Stories from VOA Learning English.

On this program, we explore common expressions and idioms a little more in depth, Today, we discuss a popular and common food – eggs!

People who like eggs think they are egg-xecllent (excellent)! Egg-traordinary (extraordinary)!! Egg-mazing (amazing)!!!

Okay, that last one didn’t really work.

So, let’s talk about cooking with eggs.

 

 

In the mid-1970s, the U.S. American Egg Board -- a group that represents egg farmers -- wanted to create an advertising campaign that captured the usefulness and versatility of the egg. Its ad campaign, called “The Incredible, Edible Egg,” told of all the health benefits and showed all the ways we can use eggs in our meals.

For a party or a snack, in a mousse or in a pack, making omelets for the gang, in a salad or merengue, for a treat right after play, in an elegant soufflé … the incredible, edible egg.

And it’s true. We use eggs in so many different dishes. And they are one of the most common breakfast foods in the United States. We eat them sunny side up, scrambledor poached, fried on a sandwich or cooked with vegetables or cheese in an omelet.

And that brings us to this cooking-related idiom“You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs.”

We often say this as an answer to several different situations.

Here’s one:

Let’s say you have an important goal or task. Well, sometimes you must do unpleasant things in order to complete that task or meet that goal. You can say you had to break a few eggs (those are the unpleasant things) to make the omelet (that is the task or goal).

However, we usually use this idiom in the negative form.

A: What are you doing?! This place is a mess! The floor is covered with cardboard and paint! And what is that shiny stuff all over the new rug?!
B: It’s glitter! I'm making some props for my next video project. It’s going to be amazing!
A: But I can’t walk across the floor! I can’t even SEE the floor!
B: I know it looks bad. But, you know what they say: You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs!

Ok, here is another situation. Sometimes “You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs” means it is impossible to get something important done without creating a problem for someone else. So, the result may be good for you, but not for everyone.

Let’s hear it used this way in a dialogue.

A: Our customers are not going to be happy if we move our company to a new city.
B: I’ve looked at the numbers. And moving is the only way we can grow and expand. Taxes are just too high here.
A: Well, they are still going to be really angry.
B: Look, you can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.
 
Yet another situation involves an element of sacrifice. In order to get something good or useful, you must give up something else.
 
A: Look, I don’t think I can give up sugar for one whole month.
B: Well, that's the only way you are going to lose the weight before your wedding.
A: Isn’t there another way??
B: You can’t make an omelet without breaking some eggs.
A: I don’t want an omelet. I want a double-chocolate iced coffee with ice cream on top!
 
Now, let’s end the show back on cooking. Making an omelet does require some skill. But boiling an egg does not. You boil some water and put an egg in. That is the recipe. So, if we say that someone can’t even boil egg, we mean they cannot cook … at all!

And that’s all the time we have for this Words and Their Stories.

Until next time … I’m Anna Matteo.

Uphold your duties, King tells legislators

politics May 25, 2019 01:00

By The Nation Weekend

THEIR MAJESTIES the King and the Queen on Friday presided over the opening ceremony of the new parliamentary term following the election in March, with the King telling the MPs and senators to always keep in mind the importance of their duties for public interest.

“All your actions will have a direct impact on national security as well as on the well-being of the people,” King Maha Vajiralongkorn said. “Thus, it is necessary that everyone cooperates in all missions with full capacity, prudence, and in good faith ...”

The King also extended good wishes to those engaged in parliamentary work as well as to the newly elected MPs as well as the senators.

The state ceremony to open the parliamentary term following the March election took place at the Foreign Ministry. In addition to the members of the House of Representatives and Senate, the event was also attended by members of the current government, including Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha, and dozens of ambassadors.

Among the MPs was Future Forward Party leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit, who had been suspended from duties the day before. 

Dressed in official attire, Thanathorn attended the ceremony, as he still had the right to participate but not to vote after his suspension.

The suspension stemmed from a case involving the timing of Thanathorn’s holding of shares in a media company. The case is before the Constitutional Court, which will decide whether to remove him from office.

Anti-junta protesters gathered in front of Bangkok’s Art and Culture Centre to demonstrate over the legal action taken against Thanathorn.

Led by anti-junta figure Nuttaa Mahuttana, the protesters also vented their frustrations over other political issues, including the treatment of the anti-junta bloc that has gained significant numbers of MPs but may not be able to form a governing coalition.

The activists wore black to reflect their views on the state of Thai politics.

In a related development, the first Senate meeting also took place on Friday. The senators took their oaths of office and selected a speaker and two deputy speakers for the chamber.

Pornpetch Vichitcholchai had been the sole candidate for speaker. General Singhsuek Singhprai and Supachai Somcharoen had also been the sole candidates for the two deputy speaker positions.

Pornpetch was formerly president of the coup-installed National Legislative Assembly; Singhsuek was an NLA member and Supachai had been the president of the Election Commission.

At least 15 students die in India fire

Breaking News May 25, 2019 01:00

By AFP

Ahmedabad, India - At least 15 students died Friday in a fire in a building in India housing a college, officials said, with images showing people jumping to escape the blaze.

"The students lost their life both because of the fire and jumping out of the building," Deepak Sapthaley, a fire official in the western city of Surat, told AFP.

Ten of them died from the jump and five from the fire, with up to 20 being treated in hospital, he said. The images showed blazing orange flames and black smoke billowing out of the building.

Sapthaley added that 50 or 60 people were inside the coaching institute on the top floor of the building when the blaze began. The cause was not yet known.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who comes from Gujarat state where the fire broke out, said on Twitter: "Extremely anguished by the fire tragedy in Surat.

"My thoughts are with bereaved families. May the injured recover quickly. Have asked the Gujarat Government and local authorities to provide all possible assistance to those affected."

Local officials said that the fire had spread quickly because of the material used in the roof.

The fire started Friday afternoon when the classes were packed, mostly with teenagers, and the officials were still trying to control the blaze.

Local media reports said that the toll could still rise further as many students were undergoing treatment at local hospitals.
