I love my Mum & Dad!

I love my Mum & Dad because … they built me a library full of encyclopaedias, books and home magazines which nurtured my love for reading and writing.

I love my Mum & Dad because … despite being able to drive, they put me on the 5.40am school bus for 10 years to make friends from the neighbourhood.

I love my Mum & Dad because … despite not going to high school or university themselves, they sent me to music school, language school, missionary school.

I love my Mum & Dad because … despite facing pressure from relatives with cultural expectations, they put me on a plane and told me to pursue my dreams.

I love my Mum & Dad because … despite being unemployed for two years after uni, they told me to try harder, widen my network, apply to more companies.

I love my Mum & Dad because … despite not speaking English, my Mum loves her Hollywood films and can tell her Pacino from De Niro.

I love my Mum & Dad because … despite driving like racer boys in their souped up cars, they took me on road trips around the world and taught me how to enjoy life.

I love my Mum & Dad simply because!
