I was on my way to fetch my son from dad's house when I got a call from my him ....
Dad : Where are you? Your son wanna sleep ledi.
Me : Pa, let him sleep first la ... I m on my way ledi. If he sleep jor then i carry him into the car later ok?
Dad : He told me hes tired then I asked him to go to bed, he said he dunwan ... he wanna wait for you to fetch him home.
Me : Ok Pa, I will be arriving around 15 minutes lidat.
Dad : Ok i play with him till you arrive la.
Me : Ok.
When I arrived hes peeking from the window as usual, when I got into dad's house he said to me loud loud "Ahpa! Happy Father's Day!" and then he handed me this ....
This is my first Father's Day gift from my son, I am so touched I stood there for a moment totally speechless ..... I realised something at that moment, I realised that my baby is no longer a baby .... he is growing up and he know the meaning of Father's day ledi.
Trust me, as a father myself I feel so happy to receive a gift from my own kid .... and I believe all father would feel the same if their kid would show them some kinda appreciation and tell them they been a good father, a provider and a good friend (not only on Father's day of coz!).
You dont hafta buy your dad expensive gifts or bring him to posh restaurants for dinner ... just a simple gesture like "I love you dad! You are the best dad in the whole world!" Would do just fine too!
Some of you might be busy with work and meetings and travelings (who dont?) ... but wherever you are, pick up the phone and give your oldman a call, that call alone is worth more than an expensive massage chair being sent to his front door. (of coz if you can buy the massage chair and call at the same time it would be better la! LOL!)
Happy Father's Day to all Fathers in the world!!!
