Winter 2012 (6): Visiting Yee Bho in Shen Zhen

We went to Shenzhen for a weekend and visited Yee Bho and Ah Q.   It’s hard to believe that Mom met her Aunts and cousins for the first time in her life only a few years ago.  These relatives invited us with open arms, with such warmth, hospitality, openness.  AhQ left work early and met us at our hotel immediately after we arrived, walked around with us and drove us to Yee Bho’s.  He came all the way from his work to pick us up from the zoo despite us telling him not to trouble himself, then took us to visit his home and family and spent the rest of the day with us.  You would think we had known him all our lives!.  I felt so humbled.

This Yee Bho in Shenzhen is like a mirror image of Ah Bho.  She has the same voice as Ah Bho, talks the same way and even has the same body movements and gestures.  Its amazing.  Ah Bho left China when she was only a teenager and Yee Bho was still only a child, yet they are so alike.  She prepared a 太餐 for us, full 10 dishes, so special.  There was Hakka yellow wine all the way from Mei Zhou and nyu nyuk yan. Hope someday we have a chance to return this warmth.
