It’s an idea that keeps the world going and it is not defined by what age you entertain or your caste, sex or colour.

One such idea stuck this adorable Taiwanese couple mind an now they rule Instagram one post at a time.

Chang Wan-ji, 83 and his wife Hsu Sho-er, 84, own a laundry business in central Taiwan. They, over the years, have bumped into many clothes that have either been forgotten or not picked fro the laundry. So instead of throwing them away, the couple decide to pose in them and post these pictures on Instagram. And the internet is loving these.

🎉抽獎啦!一點來自孫子的感謝小禮物 🎉 It's GIVEAWAY time! Here’s small gifts prepared by the grandson 先說方法:只要你在下面留言一句想對萬吉和秀娥說的話,或者想對你自己阿公阿嬤說的話,就可以有抽獎的資格!不需要你去tag誰(當然如果你要推薦給你朋友也很棒!) How to get it: Leave a short message below. It could be anything you would like to say to Wan-Ji & Sho-Er, or anything you would like to say to your own grandparents. No need to tag anyone! (But it’d be great if you really want to. Please feel free to tag and share.) 在滿1萬followers的時候,我已經非常開心,所以自掏腰包做了30個小禮物,想送給喜歡萬吉秀娥和我們「萬秀的洗衣店」的朋友,歡迎大家加入「萬秀的洗衣店」,但沒想到等到做好的時候,人數居然已經23萬,可是我卻還是只有30個小禮物… 這是一個刺繡的貼布章,圖案來自我們家的洗衣機和我們衣物包裝袋上的中文字,我沒學過設計,可能畫的不是那麼好(苦笑),但這可以黏或者縫在你的任何一件舊衣服、舊包包,希望傳達一個概念:「讓大家也能夠透過一點小變化,就讓舊衣服產生新生命!」當然,也成為我們「萬秀的洗衣店」的世界特派員工! 但很抱歉只做了30個,假如留言的人數超過幾千人,或許我會考慮在我能負擔的範圍內多做一些。 來吧!留下你想給萬吉秀娥的話,或者你想分享你對於你爺爺奶奶的話吧! At the beginning, I was so happy when the account had reached 10k followers. So, I’d been trying to express my gratitude by preparing some small gifts to our friends, to those who like ’Wan-Ji‘, ‘Sho-Er', and our 'Wan-Sho Laundry'. And when I finally managed to get those gifts from the manufacturer, the followers had already hit 230k, which was way more than I’d expected! But, there’re only 30 small gifts to give away. This is a badge patch. The design is inspired by our old washing machine and the words on our laundry bag. It’s written 'Wan-Sho Laundry' in Chinese. I'm not a designer, so it's probably not a pretty design (embarrassed laugh). This can be glued or sewn onto any of your old clothes or bags. I would like to share the idea that “By a little change, we can give old clothes a new life'. With this patch, everyone can be a spreader of the spirit of 'Wan-Sho Laundry' all around the world! Again, there are only 30 gifts in total. If more there’s more than a thousand comments, I’d love to do one more giveaway if I can afford it. Here we go! Leave a message for Wan-Ji & Sho-Er, or write a message to your own grandparents! #萬秀洗衣店 #萬秀的洗衣店 #wantshowasyoung #grandparents – – _ #mixandmatch #clothes #ootd #instafashion #style #fashion #couple #夫婦 #80代 #grandma #grandpa #femmefuture #classyvision #vintage #古着 #コーディネート #love #laundry #outfit

一樣的衣服換一件裙子、一樣的褲子換一件衣服,再加上秀娥一個新的態度,就成了不同的萬吉👴🏼和秀娥👵🏼 萬吉很謝謝大家關心!藏起來的右手努力康復中! 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 襯衫:至少6年未取花襯衫 內衣:萬吉日常白內衣 褲子:萬吉私服工作短褲 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 上衣:8年未取紀念T(已找到新主人) 領巾:再度由被遺棄的手帕擔綱 裙子:再度由秀娥30年私服擔綱 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.

如果今天還是秀娥氣勢贏,那我就會告訴萬吉,說應觀眾要求,必須出一篇秀娥特輯! 前幾天VOGUE的文章說到:「有一種愛叫萬吉和秀娥的愛❤️」,這是什麼愛?其實孫子也不知道,但當有人把整套好看的西裝送洗未取,拿來給兩人穿上,就算這次沒有相視而笑,就算衣服來自不同主人,也還是會覺得是情侶裝,這應該就是愛吧? 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 成套西裝:至少20年以上未取成套雙排扣白西裝 內搭:8年以上未取布達佩斯紀念T(已找到新主人) 腰帶:萬吉的領帶 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 成套西裝:至少15年以上未取全套卡其西裝 內搭:3年未取白t恤 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.

本來想拍出冷酷的感覺,結果這套每一張的萬吉和秀娥都自己在秀恩愛啦! 這兩件西裝外套真的有夠久,據說甚至可能比孫子年紀還大(不可考),但是剪裁和設計實在完全不輸現在的風格,萬吉身上那件衣服有個細節沒有呈現到,那是一件格紋拼接的獵裝啊!!!雖然兩件size對於萬吉秀娥大了點,但是卻因為秀恩愛好像變成情侶裝了啦! 👴🏼萬吉(身長160) 西裝外套:應該有20年以上未取格紋獵裝 上衣:阿公日常白內衣 褲子:阿公私服西裝褲破掉自己去改短的短褲 👵🏼秀娥(身長155) 西裝外套:至少15年以上未取長版駝色西裝 內搭:5年以上未取金釦針織上衣 裙子:再度由秀娥30年私服擔綱 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.

這不是要說阿公在模仿年輕時看小姐的樣子! 而是一個有點悲傷,關於布達佩斯旅遊紀念T被遺棄的故事…身上的衣服,來自被放了至少8年以上的T恤區,衣服上面寫著布達佩斯,而這位客人一共送洗了五件,分別是黑白灰黃紅,除非他真的很愛這一件T恤的款式,不然一定是一家人出遊時買的吧?但…就是洗了沒有來拿,不知道他們一家的記憶中是否還有布達佩斯。 👴🏼萬吉 上衣:至少8年布達佩斯紀念T 褲子:至少3年以上未取UQ卡其褲 👵🏼秀娥 領巾:兩條被遺棄的手帕綁成 上衣:至少8年布達佩斯紀念T 裙子:阿嬤30年私服 💡溫馨提醒|洗衣服請記得拿、認同請分享❤️ These old clothes have been abandoned by customers at the laundry for years.
