Frozen food has never looked so romantic.
A Chinese soldier prepared a year’s worth of meals for his wife before returning to Tibet, where he's stationed. His parting gift included over 1,000 dumplings and 150 liters of soup, the Mirror reports, and a number of sweet treats with notes attached hidden around the house. Yin Yunfeng, 27, will call and send messages to his wife, 26-year-old Zhao Mai, to reveal the whereabouts of the hidden gifts whenever she is feeling lonely.
Because Yin Yunfeng is stationed in Tibet, the couple only sees each other once a year.
Zhao Mai is a school teacher who often doesn’t have time to cook for herself. Yin Yunfeng was prompted to prepare the dishes after seeing on his last visit home that his wife wasn’t making fresh meals for herself. In turn, he prepared the year’s worth of single-portioned meals and stashed them in the freezers of his home and of nearby friends and family.
“I have to admit his food packages help keep me going and it’s great to know that he loves me,” Zhao Mai said in a translation provided by Metro. “In some way every time I have my meal I know he is with me.”
