I’m going to do this with my mom, as I have a lot of regret not doing it with my dad before he passed. Everyone told me to ask him questions but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. It felt like if I did, I was letting him go. Which isn’t the case at all! I wish I’d asked him and knew him for more than what I saw him as. I won’t make that mistake again! ❤️😊 miss you, dad. Every day 😘😘😘😘

Thank you for making this video, my Mom passed away when I was 21, I’m 33 now and recently thought what it would be like to have an adult conversation with her like you and your Mom did. Her childhood might have had some similarities with your Mom, she was raised in the Philippines with 8 other siblings, moved to Canada and had kids, worked a ton of jobs to keep us fed. I was always curious how she could be so happy all the time, when life has so many struggles. I think your Moms words are very special and we can all learn from them. Much love to your wonderful Mom, you, and your family!

I think when you come from a very hard life, even the simple things can make one happy. Love your story about your mum eating the remaining rice with tea, mums will always put their children first. Most importantly is that you noticed what she has done for you, it would be horrible if you did not. Your mum is just wonderful, reminds me of my own Mother. Mums are truly the best!

brought me to tears! your mum is very wise woman, she's literally spreads love around her, and I can feel it even just watching her on UZvid. it's so hard to us, who grew up in peace and wealth, to cherish and appreciate what we have. but your mum knows the price of these simple things - no war, enough and everyday food, warm home and no fear for the lives of your children... send you and your mum lots of love and wish you only good and fun travel to China!

When i’m older i’ll take my parents to a place where they can forget job, and just relax. Your mom is a very good person, she’s strong with a heart made of gold. She deserves all love !

Cherish your parents and loved ones! My mom passed away suddenly 6 years ago. I was 29 years old. She was my very best friend! I was with her almost every single day. I preferred to be with her and around her over everyone else in my life! I have 0 regrets! I just wish she was still here. She loved the simple things in life just like his mom does.

I wish I had asked my mom these questions before she passed away almost a year ago. This is really hitting me in an emotional way. Like your mother, my mom was also living during a war. She was born in Cambodia, but is Chinese, and during that time, she was facing the Khmer Rouge with communist leader Pol Pot. Almost went on a boat that had gotten bombed by the communist regime, but someone told her to go elsewhere. So hearing the struggles your mother faced and what she did to help you and your siblings get a better life than she had, really got me feeling super emotional because I remember my mom telling me stories of her hardships and how she wouldn't trade the world to get a better outcome.

Kane’s mom letting him eat first and pouring tea into his leftovers for herself made me straight up cry. My mother would do the same when we were tight on money and I was very young in the Philippines. She’s pour in beef or chicken or fishbone broth into my leftover morsels of rice and that would be her breakfast and lunch for the day. She always told me I have to be full to think fast at school. This totally inspired me to give her a call and tell her I love her.

Make happy very easy... We just don't understand how someone who spent all their lives working and yet never complains. That's because happiness is simple. You can see that when she was showing her plants. No need for luxury, traveling, partying. Happiness is right there under your feet.
