Happy Father’s Day

Today is Sunday, 21st June. It’s the Father’s Day. So, I’m wishing to all great fathers out there – Happy Father’s Day!

Frankly, I never celebrate a Father’s Day. In fact, I never heard of any other celebration than Hari Raya, Chinese New Year, Deepavali and Christmas when I was young.

Pity me? Don’t be LOL. Just blame the government because doesn’t make it a public holiday…ha..ha..ha

I only knew about Mother’s Day and Father’s Day when I studied in a boarding school in Seremban (TKC). But, I never bother to celebrate. Because I never been taught to celebrate (read: bukan tradisi).

What is a Father’s Day anyway? A day to appreciate your dad, is it? A day to celebrate having a dad, right.

But, not everyone has a good dad you see. Many have evil dads. Many have ignorant dads. Many have NO dad at all.  So, doesn’t that mean celebrating a Father’s Day could hurt certain people’s feeling, right? What will those who never get the LOVE from a dad feel, hmmmm.

Oh.. I’m not against Father’s Day celebration. Let’s all appreciate our dad!

Izzah & Babah

But we don’t really need a special day to tell our dad that we love him, right? How about telling him EVERYDAY? How about appreciating and loving him every seconds?

 *Al-Fatihah to my beloved dad, Allahyarham Ibrahim bin Abas – passed away on 25th March 2007, Sunday 6.24am due to stroke.

What Is A Dad?

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again. 

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt. 

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

  • wah ..masih terasa i kepenatannya sambut Fathers Day tadi umah jiran sebelah..semangat btol dia ajak apak2 kat AP ni dtg umah ..dia wat BBQ .. hehehe..

    Dan buat pertama kalinya my hubby sambut Fathers Day! dia terkejut sesangat dapat kad buatan sendiri dari anaknya!! heheheh…dah susah sgt nak cari kad 1st time Father yang macam dia bagi utk i masa Mothers day dulu, i wat ah sendiri ..hahah..tulis sendiri ..lagi senang!

    • watie, waah.. sambut father’s day with BBQ.. syioook nya! mesti your hubby rasa very excited dapat kad tu kan?

  • sebenarnya setiap hari ialah hari bapa cuma for father’s day ni extra special sikit sbb beli hadiah, go out for dinner etc. Kalau nk ikut kasih sayang, sepanjang hayat kan, takperlu tunggu hari bapa!

    • real woman, true! tapi it would be good if we do the surprise like buying gift, dinner treat etc more often.. not just once in a year ya…

  • tak celebrate, husband pun keje… tapi selalu berterima kasih pada hubbyku yang menyumbang gene XY. kalo tak, dah pasti anak 3 orang tu tak keluar. aritu my preschooler bawa balik kad masa mama’s day, tapi papa’s day ni tak de plak. sexism? sebabnya semua teacher dia tu perempuan.. hahaha..

    anyway, I’ve great memories with my late date. rindu padanya… Al-Fatihah.

    • sueallen, Al-Fatihah to you late dad..

      penyumbang gene XY usually tak kisah pun about father’s day.. and usually kat sekolah pun cikgu focus more on mom’s day.. sexism maybe LOL… perhaps mommies more sensitive than daddies…ha..ha

  • betul little mama…selalu jugak pergi dinner sekali. Bukan setahun sekali je. Kadang-kadang for no reason pergi dinner kat luar. But father’s day punya venue selalu special sikit. Kalau hari lain makan kat tempat biasa-biasa je. Hehehe.
