普特英语听力 www.cocomx.com  A Vietnamese businessman has been attracting a lot of attention on Asian social media sites for his obsession with gold. 36-year-old Tran Ngoc Phuc wears a total of 13kg of gold wherever he goes, and is always accompanied by at least 5 bodyguards who make sure that no one tries to steal it.

一位越南商人因痴迷于黄金而在亚洲的社交媒体上吸引了一大批关注。36岁的Tran Ngoc Phuc不管去哪儿都会戴着13公斤重的黄金,身边还跟随着5个保镖以防黄金被偷。
 
Phuc first started making headlines in Vietnam last week after a series of YouTube videos of him showing off his massive jewellery went viral, getting several millions of views. Since then, photos and videos of him wearing his huge gold necklace, bracelets and rings have been doing the rounds on Vietnamese social media, and even on several websites in China and Thailand. While some people expressed their doubts that the jewels are real gold, most commenters wondered how he can stand walking around with so much extra weight. The businessman admitted that wearing the jewellery took some getting used to , but claimed that it was worth it as all the gold has boosted his good luck and prosperity.
上周,Phuc首次登上了越南的新闻头条,此前,他在YouTube上一系列炫耀珠宝的视频在网上流传开来,获得了数百万的浏览量。从那以后,他戴着巨大的金项链、金手镯和金戒指的照片和视频一直在越南社交媒体上疯传,甚至传到了中国和泰国。虽然有些人对这些黄金的真假表示怀疑,但大多数人好奇的还是,他是怎么忍受在走路时背负着这些额外的重量的。这位商人承认,确实得好一会儿才能习惯这些重量,但他称这一切都是值得的,因为黄金会给他带来好运和财富。
 


Tran Ngoc Phuc told Vietnamese reporters that his current collection of oversized gold accessories consists of a 5kg gold chain and medallion, two large bracelets weighing 5kg each, four 500g rings and a gold waistband. All together they weigh 13kg and are worth an estimated 13 billion Vietnamese dong ($550,000).
Tran Ngoc Phuc告诉越南记者,他目前戴的黄金包括一条5公斤重的金链和奖章、两只5公斤重的金手镯、四枚一斤重的金戒指和一条金腰带。这些黄金加起来总共有13公斤重,估计价值130亿越南盾(55万美元)。
 
The young businessman revealed that he started ordering his giant gold jewellery 5 years ago, after a feng shui consultant told him that it would increase his good luck. He first commissioned the large gold chain and medallion featuring a winged horse, but then decided that more gold meant more good luck, so he had the other pieces done as well. And he’s not stopping here. Phuc recently revealed that he plans on ordering a custom gold hat and shirt as well to go with all his current accessories.
这位年轻的商人透露说,他在5年前开始订购这些巨型黄金首饰,因为一位风水大师告诉他这会给他带来好运。他最开始只做了一个大金链子和上面刻有翼马的奖章,但是之后决定,黄金越多,好运也就越多,于是订购了其他黄金配饰。这还不够,Phuc最近透露,他计划订购一件定制的金帽子和金衬衫,来搭配他目前的配饰。
 


13kg of gold jewellery is a lot to carry around, and Tran admitted that it was pretty hard at first. He would wear it for a while and take it off when it became too uncomfortable, but he got used to it eventually. The heavy chain and medallion have given him the most trouble, as his neck started hurting because of the extra weight. At one point, he stopped wearing it and went to see a doctor because the pain wouldn’t let up. The physician thought he was crazy when he said that the pain had been caused by an extra large gold chain and medallion, but then he came back wearing his jewellery and the doctor prescribed some medication.
13公斤重的黄金配饰可不是随随便便就能随身带着的,Tran也承认,一开始确实比较艰难。他会先戴上一段时间,实在不舒服了再把它们取下来,不过最终总还是习惯了。大金链和奖章最麻烦,他的脖子因为额外的重量而开始疼痛。有一段时间他甚至不戴它们了,还去看了医生,因为脖子的疼痛一直没有得到缓解。医生最开始听到他的描述以为他疯了,直到他把自己的黄金珠宝带去给医生看,这才给他开了药。
 
Walking around with 13kg of gold isn’t the smartest thing a person can do, and Phuc is aware of the risks, which is why he always has 5 bodyguards around him whenever he goes out with his precious accessories. He was recently spotted in the stands at a soccer game between Vietnam and the Philippines, and his bodyguards were all over him quite literally, holding his jewellery whenever they sensed any danger. Phuc understands that not everybody can afford to hire several bodyguards, so he recommends that people not follow his example.
戴着13公斤重的黄金到处走并不是什么明智的选择,Phuc显然也是意识到了潜在的风险,于是雇了5名贴身保镖。最近有人在越南和菲律宾之间的一场足球比赛的看台上认出了他,他的贴身保镖真的很“贴身”,一旦发现有什么不妥,就会立刻护着他的黄金珠宝。Phuc也明白并不是每个人都能负担得起雇几个保镖,所以他并不推荐大家模仿他的做法。
