Just visit any old grave. None of those dead people know who you are anyway.

Robert... isn't your wife Chinese....?    how can you make light.. show disrespect to her...  it is part of the Chinese culture and tradidtion..it is part of the country that you want to make your home in one day. whether you believe in it or not you will be expected to take part in this ..  as part of a family.

Not everyone is bound by the same traditions.
In the US it's traditional to attend funerals but I don't bother.
The dead are dead and all the fanfare and going through the motions isn't going to change that.
It's a total waste of time.
If someone wants to do that, I don't care.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Your mother is dead, you once said - do you never visit her grave and leave some flowers there?

No. It's 1800 miles from here. She's dead anyway. What's the point?

You sound very cool about your mother; did she never warm your heart?

Here in China  millions  ...

I have memories and those are far more precious than a gravestone.
I would rather dwell on our happy times together than walk over her remains. What is wrong with you?
My dad died last year and I didn't go to his funeral either. There's no point in it.
I can remember our happy times together without going to see his remains.

Do you like to hear weeping people giving you a phony "boo hoo"?
But being sanctimonious has always been your hallmark.
