My Mom is already 72. That day, Hoe told me he wishes that his grandma lives forever. He really can't accept it if she is not around anymore.
After saying those things, he then served her a mug of 'long-life' (as Hoe called it) drink (it's just plain water) that day and wished her long-life. At the same time, Hoe served me my drink in my usual little tumbler. You know what he's trying to do? To prevent jealousy, what else?
My Mom gladly drank the water with a big smile. Hope this means good.
