Born on 2 Mar 1940, my mum is 70 years old this year. I am happy to see her each day when I come home. This is how she looks like in her room :
My mum use to tell me she will find her own program each day to keep herself occupied. This is good because both my wife and I need to work each day. During weekend, we are also busy with volunteer works.
Sometimes she will cook and forget about her cooking and continue watching TV and end up the food got burnt.
She will read Chinese newspaper each day. When it is my turn to read, the paper will be in a mess because she said this showed and proofed that she read the entire newspaper !
Just the other day, she said she has been reading some dharma books and being a Buddhist, she does not scold anyone. I responded to her saying : You do not scold people, xyz@*#! (I created some noise trying to mimic her scolding me). Immediately she said that if she did not scold me in the past, I will not become who I am today ! So, no matter what I said, my mum always got something to reply me.
She is alone at home most of the time, so I subscribe to Starhub cable vision so that she has more TV program to watch.
Those who parent who are still around, they should talk to their parent more often. This month, my mum is going to Japan with my godmother.
