Pris is sending her child for her oversea study soon. She is worried whether she could be able to take care of herself in a foreign land. She knew I had sent two of my sons to study in England twenty years ago. She likes to know what advices I had given to my children before they left abroad.

These was what I told my sons before they left for their studies. I only needed three requests from them. Two things they should not bring home. They must only bring back one. The first request, promise dad that you must not bring back HIV. Second, no bringing home a foreign wife. I only want you to bring home your degree. Unless they agreed to these terms, I would not have send them away. The rest, I wasn't bother to know because they were big enough to take care of themselves. Both my children came home after their studies with a beautiful degree for me.
