My dad just turned 76 few days ago this new year 2019.. He was born in 1943. Both my elder sister n I simply call him Papa. When I was still small, I remember feeling very safe when he is around and his body was(and still is) white n soft like a hairless polar bear. He has big hands, feet and a very big heart to help others who cannot help themselves. Last year in 2018, in recognition of his lifelong contribution to charity work, he was awarded the title Datuk which is Malaysia's equivalent of British knighthood.
My father was not at all 🌈 and IG picture perfect man/father..phew! I think sometimes..quite often.. we can be too obsessed with our expectation of perfection to our own detriment. My dad is 'broken' in some ways, not perfect but still good 👍. He would often say to us, don't throw it away if it can still be fixed hahaha. He never complained about the difficult life that was handed to him or the challenging times he faced. He always gave his best with what he got and made lemonade out of 🍋. To me, he RoCKS! and when I think about him..I'm proud and honoured to be his son. No doubt or question! 🙌😁
Today, with so many DC and Marvel movies, almost everyone has a fav superhero. Well, not all superheros wear a cape or have special superpowers. Their names are dad, daddy, pappy, pa, papi, aba, bokap etc. Regardless of their past, dead or alive; Honour them today..in your own way. Cheers 😉
