Happy Father's Day

(TQ Kak Lang, for sponsoring the cake)



After weeks of waiting, 17th June arrived, much to the excitement of the family. It’s Father’s Day!.My sis-in-law and I had earlier planned to rendezvous at the “big house”with our respective families on tow, for our annual father’s day do. Unfortunately though, hubby had to be at a conference and would only be back in the late afternoon (conference organizers!!! Don’t they know anything about Father’s Day?). So gathering was set at roughly 5pm.

Anyway, since I was busy slaving away in the kitchen preparing my infamous mee lemak, my eldest quarantined herself in her room and produced another one of her famous Father’s Day card, complete with Winnie the Pooh and Hello Kitty stickers!




I love it when we meet up on special occasions. Be it for birthdays, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. I feel it’s important to celebrate these occasions and show our appreciation towards those who we love and care very much. Often as we mindlessly go about our daily routines, we may forget to thank our partner for his/her contribution in keeping the family “together” . And what better time to do so, than on these special days.

So to dear husband, the father of my five children…Happy Father’s Day. Thanks for being such a great guy.

It matters not that Time has shed
His thawless snow upon your head,
For he maintains, with wondrous art,
Perpetual summer in your heart.

There is a hadith that mentioned about how all the ibadah and other good deeds of man would terminate upon his death, EXCEPT for three things –1. his sadaqah jariah (charity),
2. his children who uphold righteousness (salihin), and
3.beneficial knowledge which he
spread to others.
It is just a reminder from me who ve lost both my beloved ones.
