One Show. Two Parts. Two Locations.

You, the audience have the chance to choose which part you want to watch first! After watching one part of the show, you move on to the next location to watch the next part. Whether you watch the show as a flash back or the other way round is entirely up to you!

"Just because someone is coming from Singapore you want to forget your Hokkien? If you are so good to do something good when I didn't ask you, you must be hiding something bad."

Mama, Past Perfect

"When I was young, I used to look at the stars with Kenny. We would talk all kinds of nonsense looking up at the stars, but all the time, I would be thinking whether you were thinking of me out there in Kulim.

I wondered if you remembered me."

Andrew, Future Tense

Past Perfect takes you back in time to the childhood of Andrew and Kenny or more fondly known as Big Head and Potato head when they were living with their mother in Kulim. Their favourite aunty, Sien is coming for a visit from Singapore and the two boys are going crazy preparing for her highly anticipated arrival. But their mother doesn't seem as impressed as she should be with all their lalang-pulling and garden decorating efforts.

In Future Tense, Desmond delves into the adult versions of Andrew and Kenny, revealing elements of guilt and remorse. Aunty S is holding her 50th birthday party. It is the biggest bash she is throwing - ever - one that will celebrate her life, and everything she stands for. But her three sisters have sent their children to tell her - on the day itself - that they have decided to not show up. At first, Aunty S feigns total bafflement, but soon it becomes obvious that one generation has not been telling the other what has been brewing in the family.

does anyone know what's the reason where the three sisters of Auntie' S hate her?

Did the Auntie S reveal the reason of why her sisters dislike her from the very beginning?
I kinda missed out here during the play. Can someone enlighten me pls?

Haha, no problem.
The birth of Aunty Sien caused the death of her mother, and her father blames her for it. While the three sisters grew up, the father somehow brainwashes Ann and Gail to despise their own sister, because of their mother's death.
