Family Ties That Bind
Join Wang Ah Kow as he recounts the family saga of four different families that face the same growing pains as time goes by. Each of these families start out on their journey to ensure a better future for the coming generations with all of them going through immigration as a passport to a better future. Along the way, they encounter poverty and prosperity, happiness and heartbreaks but most of all, they encounter changes and challenges to their values and practices.
As the old generation laments the loss of family ties, filial piety and respect for elders in this day and age, the young generation continues to evolve and absorb the culture around them and forges ahead with a fusion of both modern and foreign values. The family ties in this yarn spun by Ah Kow slowly unravels as he brings to a close the binding and compelling drama that is found in the lives of the overseas migrant Chinese and the various branches of the family tree.
This explosive reminder is written by Lee Chew Kang, who was born and brought up on a farm, and has extensive interactions with the old folks in both the rural and urban areas. The author calls himself a rural scientist.
