Once every year, I feel the privilege to be self-centered. It’s only about me, Joyce and I. yIPpee! It’s The day again, 20 June.
It is even more special this year as it’s Fathers’ Day too. I love my dad too much to comprehend whether I love or hate him. Very often, love and hate is a thin line. But I know he has given me everything he would want to give to a daughter and in no way in this lifetime I can repay him everything he has done for me. I remember….the time when he brought me to a neighbourhood park and celebrated mooncake festival with me alone while I was in still in HK….those times when he used to pick me up from school in Shatin HK…the time when he forced me to buy an ice cream I wanted When I was only 6…..the time when he sent a letter to me from HK to Singapore saying I’m the apple of his eyes, those times when I cried each time he had to leave and go back to HK for work…..those times when I disappointed him again and again with my incompetence and rebellion. But deep down, I know my dad wants the best life for me and perhaps that is enough. No matter how strict he is with me, he just wants me to be happy and never to be taken advantaged by anyone. Sometimes, I know I’m probably the last treasure he has in life. Often, I think about how I survive without my dad, because I can’t….
England sucked big time but apart from that, my so called pre-birthday dinner went well with a surprise stalk of red rose…… and I spent my birthday this year studying behind my desk…..*boring* J
Thanks to all who had sent me birthday wishes via text messages/ SMS and of course facebook. I’m so happy on this day. I am spoiled especially with June, showered with extravagant presents and surprises. I’m grateful. I was taught that a girl should not be spoilt, but I am also told that I have special privilege to do so on my birthday! I turn 28! *oops, 28 already*
A special thanks to Jo (my best friend and sister) who have called me just ONE time on my birthday. I have not spoken Mandarin for 3 months and I feel so close speaking Mandarin with her. I am soooooooooo appreciated and also excited that my godson will see this beautiful world tomorrow at 7pm Singapore time. I’ve been thinking about you (Jo) a lot and your bb. You both are very important and I regret not to be there on your big day (not just the "day", but an important “phase” of our growing up together”. We have gone through thick and thin together all these years and no one forgive us as much as we do for each other. I love children and my godson shall be the first close one after my nephew. I love you sis…. I hope you read this before 7pm Singapore time tomorrow and you come out of the labour with a lovely boy. J *am I allowed to cry because of joy on this special day?*
