I spent two nights in KK after my trip from New Zealand. The day I was due to fly back to KL, my parents were with me at the airport.
My mum took the luggage bag that I was strolling and said, “Let me help you.”
I insisted that I strolled it myself but she refused. I said why and she said, “Because you are my best friend.”
“You understand me. I can pour out all my sorrows to you and you always support me.”
That’s like the most touching thing my mum has ever said lately.
After I reached KL, I called Mum and I said, “Hello, my best friend.”
Since then, whenever we call each other, we’ll start the phone conversation with “Hello, my best friend.” Sometimes I call her 어머니, mother in Korean. So it depends on what we are feeling that day. 🙂
