As children grow into adults, many tend to focus on their careers or building a family of their own. And while there’s nothing wrong in doing so, it is also worth remembering to keep our aging parents in mind as well, and spend as much time as we can with them while we still have the chance to.

After all, it’s always the little things that we often take most for granted, and only lament their loss when they’re well and truly gone.

“Auntie, I really enjoy seeing you eat. You really enjoy, ah,” the lady said.

“Ya, ya. The food was good. That’s why I enjoy it,” Anis’ mother replied.
