Something very meaningful to share

Postby KS_me » Tue Sep 01, 2009 2:46 pm

I'm Malaysian, Spore PR. I visited my parent usually twice a year which I think is not enough since they are getting real old...

I will try my very best to apply for long holiday during CNY break for almost 2 weeks just to spend my time with them... talking... chit chatting..

and I look forward each year for Malaysia Petronas CNY advertisement. They are all very very touching film for all of us to understand "love"..

Here's a few I would like to share... I :cry: whenever I watched it...

Story of two brothers reunited after a misunderstanding past. The music in this ad is incredible, won a silver award for it.

Thanks for sharing. Quite touching especially the first short story. Nothing beats to spare time for our parents.

Yes, once a year kind of thing... I oways cry in front of my dad's TV

As Malaysia culture is so different from Singapore. Most of us are not as fortunate as Singapore child. These kampong child not highly educated will venture elsewhere to earn a living.. they will go to big cities like KL, JB, Penang, Spore, Japan, USA, UK, NZ and etc just to earn for a living.

What touches me most is how the film maker urge these so call "游子" to be home for reunion 团圆饭

The touch examplified in these petronas adverts are really cool.... They really demonstrate the familial values stressed in Asia.

They are very meaningful ads indeed and I like this one about how the grandparent is being treated, the young children learn from it and suggest that they will do the same to their parents when they are old.... :wink:

Where is your hometown? I am also a PR and my hometown is at Johor state, which takes 2 hours to reach from JB Larkin bus station....I feel lucky as the distance is quite near for me...

I try to visit my parents every quarter... Kids and me have to wake up at about 5am plus to catch the earliest bus (730am) at Larkin bus station and we can have a nap in the bus during the journey...

My kids love to visted their grand-parents...

Hi fussyMummy,
You are indeed lucky as your distance is so much nearer... I'm from Perak, driving home will take us 7.5 hours. Thus, I'll always take a long leave (1week and above) whenever I visiting my old folks.

My 2 boys love visiting my parents too. The clear sky, the fresh air, the spacious house are what they enjoy most.

Nice to know some1 in the same boat as me :) :wink:

My cousin resides in Perak.
Relatives who have gone to
visit her have complimented
how tranquil and beautiful the
place is.. :D

They rave of clean beaches,
nice food and clear breathing
air.
