Will be flying back to Penang come sunday. Dad will be 68 come 8th april. Being a very traditional teochew, to him joy is to see the whole family home. Home to celebrate any important family events. Brother has been relocated to Kuala Lumpur while I, in Singapore. As one grows older, it's a delight when families and loved ones make effort to come together and celebrate a birthday, wedding or festive event. An excuse and a reason. Far flung and shrinking families make coming together even more meaningful.
