This also means that those with some money would never have the chance to buy the pig's head !! So if you want to eat some pig's head you would have to volunteer to do the preparation of the animal..
|Another view of the animal|
|Two men are needed to weigh the animal|
|At first weighing the animal was 65 kg|
|More careful weighing...63.5 kg.|
Weighing a huge animal is not easy in the rural areas.
Have you ever wondered how animals were weighted in the olden days? Not by bathroom scales definitely.
This brings to mind once long ago how in the school we tried to prove that different scales could be different in their measurement.
The daching was used and the students were put into a sarong and weighed. You can imagine the fun we had using the old Chinese daching. But it did measure our weights to a certain extent. We did even manage to weigh a boy who was more than 70 kg....and he got into the sarong with such grace!!
It would be good in a community museum to have a really good set of Chinese daching to tell the new generation how we used to weigh things in the past.
Scales and daching should be true.
Have a good day.
