In a banquet, a neighbor poor man who made pickled cabbage and radish for a living could only give the best pickled cabbage in his home as a present, he kept apologizing. Auntie 13 did not mind at all, and was inspired to cook boiled fish with pickled cabbage, the man felt being cared about. Surprisingly, when the guests of the banquet tried the dish, they ate all happily.
