Leave it to David Choi to have us bawling our eyes out. This time, it isn’t one of his sad songs that has us in tears. Yesterday, Choi posted a video on his official tumblr which apparently left him “completely wrecked.” Intrigued? We certainly were.
We’ve already seen an awful lot of heartfelt Asian videos over the years. Don’t even get us started on all those Asian life insurance commercials! Honestly, we were pretty confident that we could get through this video without losing any tears.
Boy, were we wrong.
Well it looks like an Asian life insurance commercial got us again. This time, we have MetLife Hong Kong to thank for making us run out of tissues. The video description says, “MetLife values the dream of every parent to give their children a good education to pursue a better life. We understand every sacrifice you make for your children’s future.”
This goes out to all the parents who have struggled financially and have sacrificed their own well-being for their children. This is for the parents who have pretended like everything was okay just to see their child smile. This is for the parents who have worked countless hours so their child would want for nothing. We hope you know we appreciate you.
Sometimes, we all just need a good cry session. Well we’re here to help you out.
“My Beautiful Woman” is a touching and inspiring short about love, sacrifice and motherhood. The short film allows us to question what it truly takes to be a mother and reminds us that there’s still a lot of good in this world.
This video is brought to you by ‘Beauty Inside’ Wacoal Thailand and is based on a true story. So pull out the tissues and watch this heartwarming story below.
According to 4lifethailand.org, a fundraising organization that hopes to “bring life to the thousands of abandoned disabled children living in state institutions in Thailand,” thousands of unwanted children are left on the streets of Thailand for various reasons, including disabilities. State orphanages have been set up, but the number of children who find themselves without a home are getting overwhelming.
It is people, like the mother in this video, who open their heart up and allow these abandoned children to truly feel what love is.
Looking for a good cry? We’ve got just the thing to pull at your heartstrings.
Chinese New Year, which is often referred to as “Lunar New Year,” is one of the most important traditional Chinese holidays. The holiday is even celebrated in countries with significant Chinese populations such as Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.
A few days ago marked the beginning of the year of the horse. According to tradition, dinner on new year’s eve is the most important dinner of the entire year. Chinese New Year is a time for family to gather together, pass out red envelopes and (of course) eat to their heart’s desires.
Aside from the traditions of fireworks, red packets, decorating and cleaning, it is extremely important that new year’s eve dinner as well as new year’s dinner is spent with family. This is meant to emphasize the importance of family by ending and starting the year together.
In modern times, especially with how busy everyone is, it may be easy for some to forget the importance of family. This commercial is here to remind you. Released in 2012, this “oldie-but-goodie” is sure to help us remember that family will always be there for you.
