Stationed in a remote Tibetan outpost, 27-year-old Chinese soldier Yin Yunfeng only gets to see his wife once a year. While this separation would seem to prohibit him from helping her out on a daily basis, the devoted husband managed to do just that on his last furlough home.
After witnessing how his wife’s business kept her from making herself a decent dinner on many evenings, Yin Yungeng decided that he was going to cook her dinner — for a year, in one massive cooking marathon.
1,000 dumplings, 150 liters of soup, and dozens of other meals later, there was enough food for a year stored away in their freezer and the freezers of various friends. In a note to his wife explaining his loving gesture he stated, “You’re so focused on your work and have so much to read when you get home that I want to make life easier for you.”
AnastasiaDate said that incredible as this gesture was, he didn’t stop there. Sweet treats (accompanied with sweet love notes) were then hidden around the house, and Yin Yunfeng plans to reveal their locations gradually to help cheer up his wife when she was feeling lonely.
His wife, Zhao Mai says that the meals help her keep going, and that they help her both feel closer to her husband and know that he loves her. Their long days apart may not be easy, but with loving actions like this it seems sure that their marriage will flourish and last many years to come.
