Post-breakfast time, long chat with my uncle on his 60 years long life journey and philosophy.


Two nights stay at my older uncle’s new house.

Uncle divorced three times with the same wife. Three years ago, he married a new lady who has been his colleague for over 30 years. She takes extra care of my uncle and is a hardcore fan of him. All of our relatives are so happy for them. Mom used to be so sad when she talked about how her brother being tortured mentally and physically by his wife in the name of love. We also witness how well this new wife treats him and how healthy and sweet she cultivates their new love bond.

Love is a form of punishment or a way of salvation, depends on who you meet.
