Last week, it marked the 100th Day of my late mother's death anniversary. It was like a dream to me when I attended the praying sessions conducted by the Thai monks. I sat down on the floor inside the Wat Chetawan Temple with clasped hands and looked at the portrait of my mother's smiling face. I briefly thought over the journey of her life with my father.
They both had a very blissful time being together while going through all the good & turbulent days. They married for over 50 years and never once, they ever quarreled as my father has zero temper. My father had a hard life growing up in Teluk Anson while my mum had a princess lifestyle growing up in Thailand. They made a good & balanced match to waltz their days in the ballroom halls until my mum's last years.
I have promised her that I will always take care of dad
while she takes a long rest in the Western Paradise.
My Dad is the greatest influence in my life.
On my darkest nights, he shone like my torchlight.
I often dozed off with the TV watching me,
He still carried me to sleep.
Dad was there always.
Dad, you have walked a long meaningful life!
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY
