Where is Your Home?

On a public holiday, Sifu was hiking on Victoria Peak with a group of students. While resting at a view point, one student asked another student, “Can you see your home from here?” This student pointed towards the direction of her home and answered, “It is somewhere around there.” Upon hearing this conversation, Sifu asked the second student...


Sifu: “Where is your home?”

The student looked towards the direction of her home and pointed: “It’s over there.”

Sifu: “Where is your home?”

The student thought that Sifu could not hear her, so she repeated her answer, “It’s over there.”

Sifu looked into the student’s eyes: “Where is your home?”

The student paused for a second and then realised her mistake. She hapchang to Sifu, “Thank you Sifu for reminding me! I’m talking to Sifu at Victoria Peak.”
