Filial Piety, My Foot!

A Singaporean accountant in her 30s, reportedly refused to be associated with her mother even after her death and that's all because she did not want to foot the funeral bill which comes to about RM5,000 or rather in Sing dollars, just 2k plus.  The accountant  did not even show up after learning of her mother's death at a nursing home. When news like this appear in the media, especially in a predominantly Chinese country like Singapore, you probably could not help but exclaim, So much for the Confucian philosophy,  filial piety (). Filial piety, by the way, is a virtue of respect for one's parents and ancestors expounded in the Confucian classic Xiao Jing or Classic of Xiào. Modern people most probably must have lost touch with the ancient classic but some short films or TV commercials would probably jolt the memory....

Enjoy and shed some tears if you care...
