They miss having those long conversations and sharing their stories with him. Many times they have tried to convince him to get his hearing checked but he just refused. He is an animal lover, his best friend was of course his dog . At times he would call his dog too loudly that even his dog would be too afraid of him. Deep down inside, he missed the sound of the birds chirping he just accepted the fact that he may never hear them again.
He was Mr Lee. After much persuasion by his daughter, he finally agreed to get his ears checked. She brought him to our outlet at Clarisound Centre Point, Bandar Utama. This was a life changing moment for him and his family.
