In the first round, each of the contesters was given a pearl with a zigzag hole of nine curves.

They were asked to pass a thread through the tiny and crooked hole. None knew what to do except Lu Tongtsan.

Dabbing a little honey at one opening, he tied a thread to the waist of an ant and sent it into the hole through the other opening.

He then blew into the hole gently. Urged by the gentle breath and lured by the honey, the ant went through the cooked hole dragging the thread.
