After all these years and in her living years...............

For the first time after all these years,I mean after all these 46 years of my life,I celebrated CNY with my 74 years old sister,okay she is my half sister.

You see it had always been my late father's dream to see his children from the "both sides" to come together and the sad thing was he never got to see it during his living years, so he passed his baton to me,(hahhahahaahah) .

May be it has got to do with age,when one is getting advance in age,one tends to see thing different,one tends to be more gracious to forget the "past" and to reconnect and reunited.

I have seen many old folks living in remorse,not willing to let go,holding grudges,unforgiving and what would come out of their lives would be mostly misery.

In the middle my 74 years old half sister and on the left my real beautiful sister. When I looked at the a frail 74 years old sister of mine and who is slowly being taken into the state of senility, I realized in the end "money" has no significance or bearing in life anymore.

Note : I did some calculation taken into my sister's age of 74, I've got a shocked that my late father got married at the age of 18,that's my man.

P/S : Sometimes it is hard to forgive but it will be harder not to

  3. What a good boy you are! My grandpa had 3 wives, 17 children & 58 grandchildren. It was not easy either to hold them all united.

  6. I agree that when one age catch up, one tends to be more forgiven after seeing what the world outside.. and frankly, for a elders, it will be a 'loss' if they keep on being stubborn! Gong Xi Fa Cai to you and your family bro!

  12. We don't blow our birthday candle for nothing, I guess. We gain wise and I truly believe things are different from what we thought during our teens, 20s, 30s and so.

    CNY is about reunion and rekindle; you made this one special for both you and your sister.

    Gong Xi Fa Chai, Eugene!

  16. Happy Chinese New Year. Shang Yee Hing Loong since you are in business.

    Yes, same here with my dad's generation. As they all aged (dad's sibling)...they seem to have forgotten about the past.

  21. You are a good person, Eugene. Life is too short. Happiness is what we make of life. I always believe we are here for each other, to help each other along - kin, friends and strangers alike. Keep up the good work!
