Memories of My Mother

As I contemplate my life as a mother, I can’t help thinking about my own mother. It has been decades since she passed away in my arms. It was several days before a major high school examination. She had been suffering from an incurable disease. She first fell sick when I was a young child of only six years, and it was something I couldn’t quite understand at that time.

A Father's Unspoken Words

My dear elder daughter Amelia,   I have never showed you this, but here is a photo of your Kong Kong and Por Por. You know I am a man of few words.

I Have Cancer

Dear Pumpkin and Carrot, My two dearest ones. I am so privileged to have been able to bear you after years of barrenness. And after such a short time with you, I have this heart-breaking news to tell you, I am dying of cancer. My first reaction was, but I have 2 lovely children... How can I leave them when we have barely begun our journey together?

Dear Best Friend

My dear Piglet, If I had to pick between the two characters of Winnie The Pooh—Piglet and Eeyore—I’d pick Piglet. And yet here you are, the Piglet to my Eeyore. Your sunniness to my gloominess. I just wanted to say that ever since you came into my life, you had brightened it up so much that I simply cannot imagine my life without you. You are my anchor in times of darkness.....

I Could Never Tell You I love You to your face

I had loved him the moment I conceived him, this little bundle who came from me. He grew up largely without a father and I without a partner. I had poured all my love on this little child who was the apple of my ‘never too bright’ eyes. He would wake up...

Mother's Day Series [Real Tale #1]

I write this as you are packing your bags to study in the UK. You are about to embark on something so wonderful, adventurous and nerve-wracking (for me, at least). I’d be lying to you if I said I wasn’t worried.
