Weibo Wednesday: May 14, 2014

Lots of goodies in this Weibo round-up, including two dating announcements! But first, let’s kick it off with a few Mother’s Day posts, some touching and some silly…

Yu Haoming with mother

俞灏明: #世上只有妈妈好#妈妈的好,不仅仅在于生活中无微不至的照料,苦口婆心的叮嘱,以及义无反顾地默默支持.更难能可贵的是,每次合影都自觉向前冲,就为了衬得我的脸能稍小一点。大家说,哪儿还能找到这么好的妈妈…[泪]妈咪,母亲节快乐!我爱你!@热戴芋 @热戴芋霖

Meteor Shower actor Yu Haoming wrote a poignant message for his mother, who was with him every step of the way after he was injured in an explosion in 2010 when filming a drama with S.H.E’s Selina. After being hospitalized with numerous third-degree burns, his mother personally cooked every meal for him and brought it to the hospital for him to eat. Haoming shared in a recent interview that his mom is still in the habit of calling him a few times a day to check up on him.

And for those of you wondering what Haoming is up to, he just started filming a drama called Before the Rain (暴雨将至), which also stars Huang Zhizhong and Jordan Chan.

#In this world, only Mom is good# Mom’s goodness lies not only in her meticulous care in life, the urging of her patient persuasion, and her duty-bound silent support. Even more precious is that every time we take a picture, I will consciously rush onward, in order to make my face a little smaller. Everyone, where can you find such a good mother? Mommy, Happy Mother’s Day! I love you!
