Crazy for food Translated by Gloria Wu “Crazy for food” When I see the phrase “crazy for food”, I know this is all about eating Before we start our second game, let’s watch this special video clip Please come to the middle of the stage We are not friends anymore You have to explain to Dimash- this is our sponsor’s idea. Not me! Watching that video made me hungery. How about you? I had no idea Dimash loves to eat! What is your favorite food? Peking duck Peking duck? I eat anything that’s spicy You like spicy? Then you must like Sichuan hot pot? Yes Just now I saw a few scenes with you eating Sichuan hot pot We know that there are delicious cuisines worldwide But I feel Chinese cuisine is the best because we have 34 provinces each province has its own cuisine, all delicious and special In 4 months, Dimash has already tasted a lot of Chinese cuisines There is a lot of good food here, for sure some Dimash has not tried yet Today we will serve Dimash with birthday themed food We have asked someone with “magical power” to serve food tonight Thank you magician! He was paying close attention. Let’s see if he figured out what these are Everyone feels you couldn’t figure out much. What did you see? What is this? These are snacks The audience came to see my perform, but they ended up watching me eat You are the birthday boy so we want to give you surprises So let me tell you about these snacks This is a specialty in the northern region called “sugar-coated haws” He knows this This is rice dumpling (zongzhi), a special food item for Dragon Boat festival This is called “pea yellow”, another snack from Beijing This is called “Wife Cake”(Laopo Bing) If you eat this you will find your future wife The more you eat, the more wives you’ll have I won’t eat this He doesn’t want to eat this Let’s see if he will end up picking this one This is ginger snack. So five food items Let’s explain the rules of the game Dimash will choose his favorite three out of five food items We invite three dears to participate in three games Dimash must wait until the games are over before he can eat these Chinese delicacies Pick three food items you want to try I lied to you. Eating this doesn’t mean you will have a wife Let’s open it I was just kidding Sugar-coated haws? He chose sugar-coated haws Try this one The second item is “pea yellow” This one is delicious He is finally convinced Please come over here What if after eating that I have to get married tomorrow? Then your wife must be in the audience I am still too young I better keep quiet Let’s welcome the three fans Congratulations to the lucky three All three are young and pretty Dimash chose three food items Sugar-coated haws, pea yellow and wife cake A, B, and C The three of you can each choose one You choose A You choose B Then you choose C We will play three games with Dimash If you win, then he cannot eat If he wins, then he gets to eat Do you understand? The two of you who chose B and C please wait over here Let’s see which game the girl who chose A will play A- “Put chopsticks in the bowl” Let’s explain this game our crew please bring the props The rules are very simple Pick up ping pong balls with chopsticks Dimash and this dear will use chopsticks to transfer ping pong balls from point A to B Whoever transfers more balls in one minute wins Understood? Tell him he can only pick up orange color ones, not the yellow ones Give it a try Dimash This is your tool You have to pick up these (ping pong) He has questions about the rules Use chopsticks to pick these up Let see if he can do it Try again You understand the rules too right?

You may leave the stage now Our crew please take away the props Dimash come here Just now we gave the first gift The first food item is sugar-coated haw Let me open for Dimash Taste and find out what sugar-coated haw taste like What do you think? Very good Is it both sweet and sour? The taste of one’s childhood? You are forever three years old Don’t eat too much. He still needs to sing later I don’t want him to not feel well Let’s start our second game Dimash please come to the center of the stage The girl who chose B please come here He asked if we still need these and I told him we don’t Of course he can We have different zones tonight- 1,2,3,4,5 Whichever zone is the most enthusiastic, I will let him give you the snacks Let’s play our game first Let’s look at the big screen and see what game it is “Heart with consonance” The name of the game sounds so cheerful Let Dimash stand over here This game is very simple as well Use gestures to act out the words you see If both Dimash and his dear do the same gestures, then they win We have 10 questions If they get half right So if they do the same gestures in 6 questions then Dimash wins. Understood? Let me say the first word The two of you must give your first reaction Otherwise doesn’t count You cannot look at each other. Stand further apart Don’t look at each other Let me stand here. The first word is “Sleepwalking” There is Kazakh translation for him Are you ready? Do it together Ready? Three, two, one, start! Looks like a vampire! I heard a girl over here yelled, “fall off the stage”! You are so cruel! You want him to fall off the stage! Ok the first word, you passed the test Let’s see the second one “Horseback riding” Get ready Three, two, one, start! According to my professional experience I cannot let them pass the test Because Dimash first got on the horse but she was already riding the horse He thought this was a verb Don’t worry we have 10 words, missing one or two is ok So they got it half right OK the third word “Bad mood upon waking up” You understand right? This is a unique phrase in China Three, two, one, start! What are you doing? This is my look when I wake up This is how you look when you wake up? And you? This is how you look when you wake up? I don’t believe the two of you can read each other’s mind Fine, I’ll let you pass. Next one “Frightened” Ready? Three, two, one, start! Both of them covered their heads But one leaned to the side, the other covered her eyes I am a strict judge so I can’t let them pass the test Should I let them pass? Alright you are the boss tonight. I’ll let them pass Let’s see the next one “Dancing” This one is hard. We have 56 different ethnic minority groups Many different types of dance Kazakhstan has many different minority groups as well, each has its own dance I don’t believe the two of you will do the same type of dance Ready? Three, two, one, start! I said we have to start together Ready? Three, two, one, start! He won again Should we let him win? Ok, whatever you say Let’s see the next one “Listening to favorite music” This one the two of you should have similar reactions Ready? Three, two, one, start! What’s happening here? What was your reaction? You really think I am blind? I feel dizzy when I hear my favorite music You’ll get dizzy? How about you? Whose songs make you dizzy? Whose songs make you dizzy? Dimash’s songs make me dizzy I get dizzy too when I hear him sing Thank you! Alright I’ll let them pass Let’s see the next one “Shooting hoops” This one should be easy Get ready. Three, two, one, start! Same steps! I’ll let you pass “I am hungry” You are hungry Three, two, one, start! Call an ambulance! Hello, is it the hospital? My goodness! I guess he is really hungry! When you touched his hand, did you feel electric current run through your body? Yes, of course! Do you want to experience electric current as well? OK, we will see if there are opportunities for you to play games Let’s see the next one “I am handsome” I will lose for sure I can’t possibly let them pass this time Should we let them pass? He said we shouldn’t use this phrase in the game, because he will lose Why? Because she is such a pretty girl, I will lose for sure Such a flirt! I tell you- Dimash is a natural-born flirt! Regardless of whether he is singing, or playing games, he flirts! Let’s see the next one “Swimming” Ready? Three, two, one, start! Wait a minute. Just now you didn’t swim this way At the beginning you didn’t swim like this You suddenly changed! Did you see what he was doing? I didn’t see him. I just all of a sudden changed Changed for no reason? Women change so easily OK, this is the last word I’ll let dears be the judge If you feel they should pass, then they pass If you say no, then they don’t pass. Should they pass? Pass! I will listen to you. Congrats Dimash! You passed the second game! Thank you for helping. You can leave the stage now Dimash please come over here and try the food The second item you chose is “pea yellow” Let’s take a look Try it. Quite nice What does it taste like? It’s sweet So it’s sweet. To be honset I’ve never tasted it before Maybe I should take a bite I will open one for you He will open the package for me! I was going to say I can taste his piece I feel bad he has to open the package. I will take a bite then Just now I thought opening the package for Dimash was the best thing in the world And now this is even better- Dimash opening the package for me! Birthday boy opened this for me I probably won’t be able to sleep tonight Thank you birthday boy Let’s have the last girl come play the third game Over here Let’s see what game we are going to play “Real love doesn’t blink” The rules are very simple Dimash and this pretty girl will stare at each other without blinking See who will last the longest This allows Dimash to show off his beautiful eyes We will also try to distract them Let see who can last the longest without blinking Dimash please stand here Keep this distance.
