This news talks about legislators calling for more to be done to promote ‘slow food culture’ in Hong Kong. In my opinion, ‘slow food culture’ ha pros and cons.
To begin with, I would like to talk about the benefits of having ‘slow food culture’. It’s no doubt that eating too fast is bad for our digestive system. That’s why so many Hong Kongers have stomachache. As a result, not only is eating solely good for our health, but also helps digestion too.
Apart from this, ‘slow food culture’ can also let us enjoying the taste of food. Many fast food restaurants in Hong Kong just concern the speed of cooking food. They don’t concern the quality of the food. Should we eat slowly, we will discover that it’s worth spending time enjoying the taste of food, isn’t it?
On the other hand, it has some drawbacks. Time is money. It is the fact that time is the most precious thing for the locals. Despite the fact that we have 1 hour to have lunch, sometimes we have to take part in other activities during lunchtime. So we just have half an hour to finish our meal. We don’t have enough time to eat slowly. Close associated with this is that some people may think that it’s a waste of time having meals slowly. They would rather use the time to finish their work.
In my opinion, I would prefer to eat fast food. Having so much work to do, I don’t have time to eat slowly on working days. However, I will eat slowly at weekends in order to be more healthy. Anyway, Eating fast or slowly is your choice
