Every one talked about them, money, usage.
Our dad and mom aspired to be lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers and Government Worker, big boss — standing in the society. They are noble goals no double.

To our children, we hope they are educated to aspire to run law firms, set up medical practice, creating engineer firms from scratch, even building a school, in other words, become a owner and entrepreneurs.
It is tough but funny. Enjoy the ride.
