Happy Chinese New Year - The Importance of Filial Piety

Well, how time flies and it is Chinese New Year again! Everyone would be very busy preparing for this auspicious day. My mom, although already in her eighties would insist of preparing some food for Chinese New Year. Every year, I will try my best to be home early to help her out buying things at the market and also cooking in the kitchen. Luckilly everyone in my family would be there to help out as well. My mom would be the Chief Chef! LOL! She is always happy to see everyone in the family seated together to have a reunion dinner and enjoying the scrumptous food. The Petronas commercial in Hokkien dialects below really touches my heart. It reminds us of the importance of filial piety! We must always take a break from our busy schedule to spend some time with our parents. They would treasure these moments forever!
I wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year!

Same to you and your family. The video always remind me of me and my Proton Saga - the non-grad one staying back here with the parents...my other brother staying in NZ for good after graduating and getting married there.

I was wondering why Petronas didn't advertise on CNY... so it seems you manage to publish it here! LOL!

Wishing you and your beautiful family a wonderful Rabbit New Year!

p/s: Why don't you take over the kitchen and be the chief chef this year, you are more than qualify jor!;D
