I know a lot of you like to knock Mediacorp shows and some cannot stand the sight of Pornsak, but I really must recommend to all of you this new series As I Hold Your Hand (大手牵老手), that started airing yesterday.
According to toggle, this is a programme to promote filial piety and will profile different parents and children.
Yesterday's episode 1 was about I think the head chef of Jack's Place. I didn't watch it from the start but I gathered that this head chef had a very troubled past, took drugs and even became violent towards his mother. But his mother believed in him and he eventually made something of himself and now is holding a very respectable job.
One part had him wanting to go to the road junction where his elder sister met with a car accident and passed on, together with his mother. His mother eventually didn't go near that junction, but the chef did. He wept when he was there, it was a very poignant moment but I think he needed closure.
It is a very well done show and reminds us about love from our parents and the importance of family ties.
