Man Flies Helper Back To Surprise Sister At Wedding, She Spent 27 Years Working For Family
Domestic helpers often forge strong bonds with the families they work for, especially if they’ve spent years, if not decades together.
In the case of newlywed Kelly Chua, her bond with her helper of 27 years remained unbreakable even after the latter returned to her homeland three years ago.
To surprise Ms Chua during her recent wedding, her brother flew their family’s helper in for a long-awaited reunion — the pair couldn’t help but shed happy tears as they embraced each other on the big day.
Calling it “the biggest wedding surprise ever”, Kelly expressed how grateful she was to see the helper at her wedding.

Brother had planned surprise from the start
