This is the text (if you need help).

A Chinese man bought 5,000 people a bowl of noodles. The man's name is Mr Wang. He lost a $45,000 engagement ring. He told reporters that he visited a noodle restaurant and left the ring there in his bag. He was lucky. A customer in the restaurant found the bag and gave it to the manager. The manager then telephoned Mr Wang. Mr Wang was very happy. He went to his girlfriend and asked her to marry him. She accepted his proposal.

Mr Wang wanted to thank the restaurant. He bought 5,000 customers a bowl of spicy noodles. This is how many the shop sells every day. People waited for a long time for the free noodles. Mr Wang said: "I feel very honoured and happy." He put a thank-you letter outside the restaurant with a picture of his fiancée. A local man said this story is moving. He said: "Love is beautiful and people's hearts are more beautiful."
