happy father's day

this is my dad..and i love this photo so so so much. i caught it accidentally during my sister's graduation day last year and he was extremely proud of her daughter to be officially an educator aka teacher.

he didn't received much education during his younger age, and i believe he studied till primary 6 only. he knew to read chinese and little english only. yet, he tried his best to provide for his wife and 6 children and a dog. because of his background, he seldom expressed his feelings to any of us and he never say "i love you" or "i care about you" to any of us.

but me and siblings all knew that he cares for us. all of us now in different states and countries, so whenever we are home he will make sure his fridges (we have 3 fridges) are full of our favorite food. he took notes on what we love and what we don't..

he's a handyman too. he knew to repair all the stuffs around the house, we felt so safe when our father's around. and i love his smile!! always the sweetest..ever!

unfortunately, me and my siblings are not able to celebrate father's day with him this year. i called home yesterday afternoon during his lunch time and greeted him happy father's day. he seem happy and laughed little bits..and when i asked what is your wish for this year father's day? he said secret!! haha..this is my dad...strict, typical and childish at the same times..

love him, though

so, dad...happy father's day to you!!

Happy father's day to your dad! I guess it's okay if you weren't really able to celebrate it with him, what matters is that you've remembered. Besides, you can always celebrate anytime, right? :D
