Im currently in form 5 but thank god i still keep complete notes of this short story. u can ask any questions :)
1)Respectful to his eldery mother
-he reprimanded Ying for arguing with Ah Ma over joss sticks.This is because Ah Ma has eaten more salt than she has eaten rice
2)Filial to his aging mother
-He knows that his mother cannot see clearly because of her catracts so he bought a pair of binoculars to enchance her vision
-she likes to feed chicken during her free time instead of enjoying tea with her friends like Helen.
2) does not entrust Ying with simple task.
- ah ma simply does not believe that Ying knows how to honour her grandfather using joss sticks properly. she is afraid that ying might offend her ancestor
