This is pasted on all the tables in the cafeteria at my friend’s school, a university in Shanghai.

Translation:  ”New Students, don’t wait until you eat dumplings to think of your mother.”

(or maybe:  ”Freshmen, don’t only think of your mother when you eat dumplings.”)

It’s an ad for a phone company.

 

Note:  dumplings are a specialty of the more northern regions of China, often eaten at family gatherings there; they are available in Shanghai, but not as much a part of daily life
