Happy Old Man
Granny Mui was abandoned by her family and lost the warmth of a home. She was also physically weak as she kept feeling sick. Getting in and out of the hospital made Mui feeling gloomy and depressed. She lost hope on her life.
In the hospital, Mui met an 8-year-old child named Kin Pak who suffered from progeria. After getting along with him, Mui became more cheerful. One day, Kin Pak gave Mui a precious Jumbo candy and a notebook. The notebook recorded all the happy moments Kin Pak had had in the hospital. Though this was the last time when Mui saw Kin Pak, she was deeply inspired the simple principle of happiness and the meaning of life.
