To My Dearest Dad

You were born in a big family as an elder son in a difficult situation, you willing to sacrifice your studies in primary school and went to work to support the family.

You always give the best to me and my other two brothers, as a leader of the family you always work so hard to make sure we have a better life. Although you are not rich in financial but you are very rich in your own principle of life. You are so loyal to your wife (my mom) and so taking care of us.

We seldom have conversation when I was a kid. You sacrificed all your time on work just to earn some extra income to support the family, but I know, your heart always with us, if not you won’t sacrificed everything you had and gave it all to us.

I remember when you came back early from work, you’ll bring me around with your old Honda C70, I really missed that bike because at that moment I only can be with you together. You also sent me to school with that old bike early morning so I no need to walk to school.

When I fell sick, I knew you’ll comfort me before you went to work, you’ll touch my forehead to feel the heat. When I injured you’ll get a day off and sent me to see doctor. I can see how worry you were when anyone of us not feeling well.

You look very tough from outside, but your heart is very soft and kind, you never beaten up anyone of us even though we made mistakes, you only scolded us then will not talk to us until you calm down.

You like to read newspapers, every morning you’ll go buy newspaper together breakfast to us, in the evening you’ll buy night newspaper together with supper to us. You always make sure we never suffer of hunger, until now everytime I came back you sure will ask me ‘have you eaten’? I really touched and speechless when you asked me that.

I’m really hurt and sad to see why you still never have an easy life after you’d retired for more than 5 years. You still are looking around some part time jobs to support the family. You had given out all your saving just to ease my brother’s burden and you still never gave up with it.

Last year during Hari Raya, you purposely went to work, after work it was heavy rain and you met an accident on your bike, you never told me that until my younger brother told me about it. You don’t want me to worry about you but when I heard that news my heart was so hurt and I was crying the whole night. I was unable to come back home to visit you because I was the only non Malay officer in office on duty in Hari Raya holiday.

I really wish I can give you a better life now, I’m really shame on myself why I can’t do as you what did for the family? Now I’m understood how hard you’ve been gone through in your entire life. I’m trying very hard now not to upset you and I promise I’ll give you a better life soon.

You are really my Superhero… my Role Model… my best Dad in the world!

Happy Father’s Day to All Fathers in the World.

I Love You Dad!!!

I am touched. I am back in Malaysia for a holiday and I really wish I can extend my stay to celebrate Father's day. It's good to know that you love your dad. I love my dad too.

narrowband said...

I saw your Mother's Day post, now this. I am sure you parents are very proud of you.

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

I showed my Mum your post. She read and cried. Actually.. tears filled my eyes too.

I am in similar situation like you. I wanted to give my parents a very easy life. But right now, i still have not reached this goal yet. I went to China to work so that I can earn more money and give my parents a better life. I think I did it. But i want to do it better.

I wish you all the best and wish your parents will have an easy and relaxing life ahead.

Sigh... You made me cried and heartache! Reminded my dad as well.. in his Honda 70. I didn't managed to repay him and my mom as well. I was in EU with my then fiancé after our engagement visiting my in-laws when I got the news of my dad admitted to PG GH for stomach ulcer operation.Later he succumbed to stroke and past away 20 days after I returned. My mom passed away due to heart broken and stroke as well... :'-( just 11 months be4 my dad's 1st Death anniversary...sigh. What saddened me most was I didn't managed to take them for travelling as I promised after my return. Without our parents there won't you and me existing! Don't wait to tell them you love and care for them till old age on Father's Day, Mother's Day, their birthdays or anniversaries. It should be everyday! Action is better than words!

Happy Father's day to all dads and dads-to-be!


Kenny Ng said...

I'm bz mah... so better do early lor

I'm so sorry to hear about it. I agree with you, these all should make it everyday, not only on mother or father's day.

Just received a cheque for $500.

Many times people don't believe me when I tell them about how much money you can get by taking paid surveys online...

So I show them a video of myself getting paid $500 for paid surveys.
