Translated by idarklight from Taipei-based Want Daily (yes, like the drink and snack) because the first paragraph is so much lolz. Reporter fail. Also, their conversation is such a typical Chinese moms conversation.
Liu Xiang’s parents met accidentally with Lang Lang and his parents in London recently. Lang Lang and Liu Xiang’s mothers both complimented each other’s sons, and are worried about Liu Xiang and Lang Lang’s marriage, hoping to have grand-kids soon. Liu Xiang’s mother also “adopted” Lang Lang as a godson, smiling and saying that “I have one more pianist son.”
London time on the 23rd, Liu Xiang’s parents met accidentally with Lang Lang and his parents at the hotel the mainland Chinese Olympics team was staying at. Liu Xiang and Lang Lang’s mothers immediately started chatting.
“Your Liu Xiang is so amazing. He’s won Olympic champions, world champions, we really like him. He’s the pride of the Chinese.” Lang Lang’s mom said, “The Olympics is beginning. We really hope and believe he’ll win the gold medal again. I especially really want to see Liu Xiang with the highest honors again.”
Liu Xiang’s mom also praised Lang Lang. “Aiyou, look at how excellent your son is. Not only is he a pianist that performs all other the world, he’s also a handsome young lad. What a great kid. ”
Liu Xiang’s mom immediately adopted Lang Lang as her godson, “I’m so happy today to have one more such great kid, one more pianist son. ” Since Lang Lang was born on June 14th, 1984, a year older than Liu Xiang, Liu Xiang now has one more an elder brother.
Liu Xiang won’t go from Germany to London until before his competition, and Lang Lang has to leave on the August 3rd because of performances, so Lang Lang said “We won’t see each other (here). Plus, before the Olympics, I should let Liu Xiang concentrate on competing and not distract him. We’ll definitely meet again later.” But, both have already set a date to eat together during the 2013 National Games in Shenyang.
