No Arms? No Problem!

I don't usually post videos (thats Mike's job) but this one doesn't seem to fit in with his usual categories.

My mother emailed it to me with the usual "see how lucky you are" message she has been trying to impart to us from childhood.

Its narrated in Cantonese and quite long but you don't have to understand or watch all of it to see just how amazing this woman is. Somewhere in the middle, she tells the interviewer that she was born without arms. I think her mother wanted to throw her away but her father saved her.

I thought beating the eggs and then frying them was amazing.. and then as I kept watching, I just found this women more incredible. The abilities she has possessed with her legs are way more advanced than us. My husband calls me monkey feet when I try and pick things up from the floor with my toes. He should see this! No pun intended though. :)
