The social issues I can easily say that Mr. Li is living in a rich neighbourhood. The reason why I said that is because Mrs. Li was shown as a woman who happened to have lots of activities including tea parties. Another character mentioned in the story was Mr.Li's son who were studying in Cambrige and his daughter, Ying who are going to New York soon. And yet, his mum's altar , the big house and their lifestyle reflects their wealth and position in the society.
