Dad was always a busy man ever since we were young, and he never had the best sort of temper. I would say it took us years to understand his type of love, and it would be categorized as “tough love”. His harsh comments and dictatorship lectures would often end in silence, with us having mixed feelings of fear and awe.
However, Dad doesn’t just tell stories. His properly rehearsed memories and experiences were often mental images of his plans, which more often than not inspires us to achieve beyond our limits like he did, and to pursue the happiness we believe in.
It has been more than two years since Dad left us, but there are times that I would forget that it actually happened, because his words still resonate deeply and prominently in every aspect of my life. So much so that his words pushed me out of my comfort zone to further my studies abroad, a thought beyond my wildest imagination, which actually came true.
As what my Dad would say,
“Do as I say, but don’t do as I do”.
I’m eternally grateful for having such an interesting and noble Dad, who had literally sacrificed his youth and life to provide for us.
Happy Daddy’s Day, and we miss you dearly.
