Unplug your devices this CNY and make granny happy

AsiaOne | Saturday, Feb 1, 2014

MALAYSIA - A recent Youtube video was uploaded by a power company in Malaysia to highlight the importance of spending time with family and friends during the festive season.

In the video, a grandmother is shown being neglected by her family who are in the house doing their own activities.

Her husband sings karaoke, while her adult children use the exercise machine and massage chair.

In the living room, her grandchildren surf the internet and play games on their computers and tablets.

The witty grandmother then comes up with a brilliant plan to make everyone join in some family bonding time - she goes around the household unplugging her family's electronic devices.

In the end, she only switches on the light in the dining room so the family can start having their reunion dinner.
