Ming dropped out the business school and went to a cooking school. His father was so mad. Ming didn't go home before he graduate from that cooking school. He told his family that he will marry a Japanese girl.

I walked through the security doors with the crowds. I tried to stand on my tip toe and find some familiar faces. I just end a phone call with my sister. She said my mother and her were waiting for me at the second exit of the terminal. I was lost. It was a new international terminal and so many people here. I realized that I had left my hometown for 4 years. I found my mother and sister at the exit. My mother hugged me tightly. She couldn't stop crying. I couldn't hold back my tears. I quarreled with my father because he want me to take his business which I really don't want to. After met my girlfriend, I hope we can run our own restaurant. I dropped out the business school. My father was mad because I didn't ask him about that. I didn't talk to him after that. My sister and mother were on my side. We talked through video call every week. I thought I can ignore my dad but I was wrong. I met him at my grandparents' house. At the moment I saw his half-grey hair I realized that he was not young anymore. I felt guilty and I hugged him.

Back to home after 4 years
