10 years on the couch - the key to world fame! - Wikipet
The Wong family from Hong Kong became famous in the Chinese social network Weibo, posting 7 almost identical pictures. From year to year, ten years in a row, dad, daughter and their pets were photographed in the same pose. Their photo shoots became the beginning of a trend in social networks in China.
The story began with the fact that in 2008, the Wong family had a daughter, Tiffany. Caring for the baby added trouble, and parents had to spend a lot of time with Tiffany, giving her due attention, reports the Daily Mail. On one of these troublesome evenings, Grace noticed how her husband, with a sad tired face, was sitting on the sofa and holding his daughter in her arms. They were surrounded by pets, not one step away from the baby. Grace touched the scene, and she decided to photograph them.
"I am very tired. “It looks like I just changed my daughter’s diaper and rested on the couch.”
This photograph marked the beginning of a series of photographs about 10 years of family life. However, at first it was not a tradition - in 2008, the Wongs forgot about photography. Tiffany found the photo only after 5 years, in 2013. She liked the picture so much that her parents decided to make it a tradition, and from that day on, Grace began to photograph her husband and daughter every year surrounded by their pets))
“There is nothing special in the photographs, but they will be a good memory when we look at them after ten, or even twenty years.”
Since then, from year to year, the Wong family has followed the tradition, and their dog and cat took part in this with pleasure!
A few years later, Ti Wong posted two photos on China's Weibo social network: the first and the last. Photos collected 7 million views!
The Daily Mail reports that users found the photo touching and sweet, and praised the family for stability and tenacity.
The Wongs were a good example for many Chinese families who wanted to repeat the photo shoots of Ti Wong and his daughter.
Ti Wong himself does not intend to stop there and is planning to take a picture with his daughter next year.
