Its just not because i haven't seen them all in a long time, but having the whole Cheong-ka family clan together in one place, sharing a meal last night was more enjoyable than i thought it would be.
Later, as we walked back to the car, my cousin in his wisdom said something particularly poignant:
"Our parents are getting older now; its up to us to keep things together."
Yes, cousin. It is up to us now to carry the family flag.
