That's why I dont dare to listen much to the song 'Anak'...makes my heart break everytime I hear it!
It is still not too late to be kind to them, one touchy action from you will still make them happy

For me its family first. If you're all alone in the world no need to work so hard, just pitch a tent at ECP good enough for me.
Go watch movie "the road", ask yourself in time of apocalypse who would u want to protect or what do you want to take?
Then that is probability your priority in life
Come think of it.
It is similar to the concept of Maslow's need.
It changes in the different phases of life.
When you are:
1. between 12 and 18... friends come first
2. between 19 and 25.. gf comes first
3. between 25 and 30.. career/money comes first
4. between 30 and 50.. family comes first
5. from 50... health comes first
Only speaking to some of those working overseas..
My 2cts, dont apply to most..
A late night TV host in Shanghai once said
" If you said you're doing all this for your family, but where are you?.."
Job/$$ enough is ok liao, your kid will not blame you for not having that increment, but that you were not there while they were growing up..
Aging parents may be proud that you're doing well out there, but I bet they wish you rather be beside them. Time and moments lost can never be recovered..
I know a guy whose family is in Aust but he's working long-term freelance here..
Everytime he comes in, he'll boast about his house and belongings in Aust. But never have I heard him talk once about his family or his young kids..
I'm sure they rather him be there..
This Petronas CNY Ad comes to mind..
