On this Father's day, my mind and time has been filled with several packed 'back-to-back' activities of joy involving several of the family members. When I arrived in Spore past midnight after celebrating Ern's birthday on Saturday in JB, a border town of Malaysia next to Singapore, I woke up on Sunday morning totally forgetting about Father's Day itself until I saw Fei's, our oldest daughter's, wishes to me on facebook! I was on a rush to be back to JB to attend the JB Church branch conference where Han our oldest boy would be attending as he is stranded there for another 3 days before being able to return back to Singapore! After that was to rush to the Changi Airport in Singapore to pick up Mom and our 2nd daughter Su with her husband Jay. So what's the full story?
The day after Father's Day is June 18, the 1st anniversary of the wedding of Su and Jay. I celebrated the joy of their anniversary by continuing to be their driver to send them to the Singapore Holiday Inn as well as to Sentosa Island nearby for them to spend a day and night alone together on their special day.
Here is a video clip that I made for Su on her 1st birthday after being married. It's something I love to do as I celebrate the joy of others with a work of my heart. My joy on Father's day is indeed really a celebration of the many joyful events of my family members and my cup is indeed overflowing on this day!
Besides celebrating the joy of others in the family, I took some time to have lunch with some old school mates who are in Singapore, enjoying our long time friendship and yarn over topics of the day.
From Father's Day of 17th June, Su and Jay will be in Singapore and Malaysia till 5th July, visiting family members on both sides of the border. Photos and videos of their time spent on this trip where Dad is their chauffeur and part tour guide will be found in the next post.
