elevated rtOXi She has lived in Vietnam, Hong Kong, and Canada. Suet Hien met Pei Tcheng when he started his medical career in Saigon, and it was love at first sight. They became the perfect partners in life. Pei Tcheng was a well-respected surgeon. Suet Hien was the loving wife and homemaker who made that possible, and managed everything else in the household with great energy and a steady hand.

Later in life, her devotion shifted from her children to all her grand-children. She bought them treats and presents, and delighted in seeing them and spending time with them. During Chinese New Year, she would spend hours reserving a table at a Chinese restaurant just to give her grand-kids the chance to see the dragon dance.

Later in life, Suet Hien and Pei Tcheng picked up ballroom dancing in a serious way, and were celebrated as the eighty something year old couple who did a virtuoso paso doble routine.
