Parents & Kids...

Just came back from dinner.. Tonight, we have Will's favourite food - Bah Kut Teh as dinner. Well, the BKT here is not as nice as the one available in KL or Klang... (John always mention that Will has BKT in his blood; and BKT has become staple food for Will already) :P

kktan sent to me few photos of his kids today, including some of his newborn baby boy's picture.. Cute and adorable baby boy.. kktan, guess u must be missing your wife & your two boys a lot, since they are so far away at the moment :) over the South China Sea in Borneo Island.. Don't worry, your in laws will take good care of your wife & your children during the confinement periods.

Parents can really sacrifice for their kids/children.. Parents are indeed great. Their sacrificial and "unconditional" love. They can put down and let go everything for the benefits of their child/children. Parents will even to the extend of giving up their own lives for the sake of their children.. Parents will really have sleepless night when their child is sick..

I'm really glad I have good parents as well, who take care of me & my siblings well. I can still remember those sleepless nights of my parents when I'm sick. Those days, i sat at the back of the bicycle while my mum cycled to bring me to school :) I never attend any tuition classes before all these while, & during my primary school time, my mother help me in my study during my primary school time. Those good old times :)

But sad to say, how many kids/children will sacrifice for their parents? Many just take things for granted. Of course there are still filial sons and daughters who stay together and take care of their parents. We can observe all these sad happenings in hospitals as well. There are even sons/daughters who even refused to come to hospital to see their parent even being called on the phone although the parent is critically ill and may passed away any time.. Some will even switch off the handphone after being called several times to come to the hospital.. Really the ugly side of human :(

yeah.. Some of them even dump their sick parent(s)in hospital as well.. Never bother to show up or visit them after admission or giving lotsa excuses like busy lah etc.. Some even don't want to bring their parent(s) back home although the parents are fully recovered or well already, ready for discharge, with the lame excuse, nobody taking care of them at home cos everybody is busy working... Really better to give birth to a piece of char siew than to have this sort of children :(
