WOW!!!50,000 Followers!謝謝每一個喜歡的大家!❤️ 上週才好不容易讓萬吉秀娥弄懂了10,000個人追蹤=10,000個人訂報紙的道理(因為老人家不懂得什麼叫追蹤,只好這樣解釋),然後剛剛馬上跟他們說今天已經50,000人訂報紙了!而且裡面有超過14,500人是外國人,萬吉的瞬間不是大笑,而是問:「那以後怎麼辦?我講台語他們聽的懂嗎?」 真的很意外大家喜歡萬吉和秀娥!在滿1萬人的時候,因為看見他們這兩週因為開心帶來的改變,我(孫子)超級感動,真的很想謝謝大家,就自掏腰包做了幾個小小小禮物送給大家,結果…做的都還沒寄來,就變成5萬了啊!大家願意等一下下嗎…雖然只有幾個,但到時候不管抽到的人是在這個世界的哪一個地方,我一定會用最快的快遞寄給你表達我的感謝! WOW!  !  !  50,000 Followers!  Thank you everyone who likes it. Last week, Wan Ji  & Sho-Er finally figured out what means by 10,000 followers = 10,000 people subscribing to newspapers (because the elderly actually don't know what “follower” is. I had to explain it this way) I told them that 50,000 people have subscribed to their newspaper today, and there are more than 14,500 people who are from other countries. At that moment, it was really funny that the reaction of Wanji was worried instead of happy. He asked, "What will happen after that? Do they understand if I speak Taiwanese?" It’s really surprising that everyone likes Wanji and Sho-Er. When it reached 10,000 followers, I (as a grandson) was so touched by the sudden change and experience in our lives in the past two weeks. I would like express our gratitude in a special way.  I decided to prepare some small gifts to our fans. but …unexpectedly, before the gifts were able to be delivered to my house, it turns into 50,000 followers. Please wait for a while…although I only prepare a few gifts. I will randomly draw a few lucky fans. No matter where in the world our fans are, I will send the gift to you by the fastest express delivery to express my gratitude. #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents – – – _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #wiw #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfits

萬吉、秀娥,年齡83歲、84歲,相伴60年的老夫老妻在台中鄉下經營「萬秀的洗衣店」即將邁入70個年頭,每天日復一日,孫子不忍心看阿公阿嬤每天無聊發呆,突發奇想,決定利用客人遺棄在店內,超過10幾年、甚至20多年的衣服,為阿公阿嬤穿搭。

Wanji and Sho-Er, aged 83, 84, have been married for 60 years. They have run “Wan Sho Laundry” in Taichung’s countryside for nearly 70 years.

However, the grandson couldn’t bear to see his grandma and grandpa getting bored at work, and wanted to make use of the many clothes that customers have abandoned in the shop of the last decades.

To this end, he decided to create an Instagram account for grandparents through which he shared their daily outfits.

孫子決定幫阿公阿嬤創辦IG帳號,分享老人家的復古混搭穿著,沒想到這對老夫妻的復古時尚搭配在網路上爆紅,吸引越來越多粉絲關注。

Surprisingly, the old couple’s retro-chic photos have become an Internet sensation, attracting more and more fans.

其中一張照片,阿嬤頭戴皮革帽子,白棕衣著,腳下踩著樂福鞋,與阿公的白襯衫、黑皮鞋相互輝映,各種穿搭小巧思令網友直呼,「阿公阿嬤實在太可愛啦!」

In one of the photos, grandma is wearing a leather hat, a white and brown outfit, and Loafers shoes, which echoes her grandfather’s white shirt and black shoes. 

In response to the chic pictures, many commented: “They are so adorable!”

值得一提的是,萬秀身上的衣服還開放訂購,幫舊衣找到新主人!

Besides, the couple’s clothes are open for sale, helping old clothes find new owners!

此外,阿公阿嬤不知道IG「追蹤者」是什麼意思,孫子用另一個方式解釋道,「10,000個人追蹤等於10,000個人訂報紙」,爺奶才終於恍然大悟。週二突破7萬訂閱,爺奶還特別錄下現實動態,用中文、英文、日文跟大家說謝謝,相當逗趣可愛。

Also, to help his grandparents understand what IG “followers” means, the grandson used an analogy, saying: “10,000 followers equals 10,000 people subscribing to a newspaper.”

On Tuesday, the number of followers exceeded 70,000, and the grandparents recorded a special video on Instagram to say thank you in Chinese, English, and Japanese.

孫子在IG帳號介紹,「萬吉秀娥就算84歲,還是可以 as young」。

“Even at 84, Wanji and Sho-Er can still be as young,” the bio reads.
