A Chinese mother bought the entire front page of the Chinese Melbourne Daily to urge her son to come home from Australia for the upcoming Lunar New Year, promising that she will not pressure him to get married this time.
"(I) have called you several times and you did not take my calls. Maybe the only way to get my message to you is here. Mom and Dad will not pressure you to get married ever again. Please come back home for New Year! Love, Mom," read the front page ad in the Chinese-language newspaper on Jan. 14.
