Write an essay of 160-200 words based on the following drawing. In your essay, you should:
   1) describe the drawing briefly,
   2) explain its intended meaning, and then
   3) state your point of view.


   范文:
   From the picture we can perceive that a man is going to order food in a restaurant. What astonishes both the waiter in the drawing and the readers is that the man use XO to wash his cup. It is known to all that XO is among the most expensive alcohols, but is as water to the man’s eyes who we can deduce is very rich.
   The artist implies a spreading vogue that advocates extravagance. Ultimately, the trend boils down to the accumulation of wealth in too short a period. Turning rich rapidly, the upstarts fail to master appropriate methods to manage their money but tend to show off fortune through dazzling material consumption. Accordingly, some businesses begin to accommodate such a luxurious demand by advertising products, such as a Spring Festival dinner, at ridiculous prices. To worsen the problem, this behavior is evoking more admiration instead of disgust.
   In my point of view, we are in a prime time to curb the problem from deteriorating. First and foremost, the whole society should arrive at the consensus that wealth is not the hallmark of social status, but individual virtues and ethics. In addition, an awareness of leading a frugal and healthy life should be infused into everybody’s mind.
   译文:
   从这幅图中我们可以看到一个男人正在一家餐馆点菜。令图中的服务员和读者们大跌眼镜的是这个男人竟然用XO酒来洗杯子。众所周知XO酒是一种非常贵的酒,但是在这个男人的眼里好像就是小菜一碟,由此我们可以判断他非常有钱。
   这幅图通过艺术的手法展现了社会上越来越盛行的铺张浪费风气。这种趋势从根本上来说是由过短时间内的财富集聚导致的。一些暴发户们过快地变富,因此他们无法通过合适的手段来管理他们的财富,而只是通过令人瞠目结舌的方式炫耀金钱。相应的,商界也开始通过推出有着荒唐价格的产品来适应这种奢侈的需求,如价格高昂的年夜饭。更糟的是,这种行为引来的不是人们的唾弃、而是羡慕。
   我认为,现在已经到了控制这个问题进一步恶化的成熟时机。首先,整个社会应该达成以下共识,即财富不应该是社会地位的标志,真正的标志应该是品质和道德。此外,我们还应该向每一个人灌输简朴和健康的生活理念。
