My Mother, Ng Chi-Ying (middle), her sister Ng Shi-King (left) and her brother Ng Sai-Chung (right) reuniting after a decade apart. Our mission was to visit their father's grave to pay our respects. He died in his 50's from opium addiction.

We would have loved if my Mum's third sister Teresa could have joined us, unfortunately she was frail due to suffering from liver cancer. This was the last photo I took of her and the last time we spoke. She was 71.
