BEIJING - Song Jinping sat near the dining table, staring at a braised fish and carefully picking out bones while his wife was busy cooking in the small kitchen.

"Dinner is ready," said the 69-year-old loudly and slowly to a much more elderly woman lying in bed.

He carried the fish and a bowl of rice to the bedroom.

Song helped her sit up and passed her the bowl and a spoon. He watched by her side, ready to offer help.

For the past 28 years, Song and his family have been taking care of Zhong Bingkun - his former primary school teacher who is now 99 years old.
