A post-90s girl in Chongqing looks after her grandmother to give back to the 88-year-old woman for raising her as a child, and is so dedicated in caring for her, she even brings grandma to work with her.
This granddaughter, Huang Lihua, took her grandmother, Wan Zongsiu, from the village to the bustling city because she wanted to look after her grandmother and repay her for nurturing her in childhood.
“All the things I’m giving to grandmother are those given by my grandmother when I was a child,” she said.
Since Huang’s grandmother was getting older and wasn’t used to the city life, Huang was worried about her safety. Huang said that her grandma, who used to wander around the village, was becoming dispirited from hanging out at home alone during the day, so Huang decided to start bringing her grandmother to work.
When grandma was sick, Huang would take turns with her boyfriend to carry her out.
Huang opened a BBQ skewer restaurant, which opened in the afternoon. Every day, she and her grandma would go to work together.
Her grandmother routinely takes afternoon naps, but she couldn’t put up with the air conditioning. Worried her grandmother would suffer in the heat, Huang sat by the bed and fanned her off.
Huang helped her grandmother to wash her face, put on her shoes and tie her shoelaces every day, just as her grandma had done for her as a child. Then she would carry grandmother on her back to work.
When Huang was at work, her grandmother would sit outside the restaurant and enjoy the weather. Sometimes, she would help Huang handle tasks at work.
