Indelible Moments with Dad

Updated on August 8, 2019

I discovered my passion for writing after I quit my day job. So I began to write fiction stories, self-help books, and articles, blogs, etc.

Introduction

My Dad breathed his last in May 1998. But when my Dad was healthy and strong years before, we had the time of our life. I would like to pour down here the memorable moments we spent together as a family and how we thrived.

Dad in a Teaching Career and as Our Tutor

Dad had great educational degrees – Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Paris and MSc in Electrical Engineering from London. He had thousands and thousands of students as he took up a teaching career at some point in his life. Earlier he was a research scientist.

He was in high demand anywhere he wanted to be recruited and always got the job he yearned for because of his prestigious educational qualifications and experiences.

Therefore, when we had troubles with our academic studies, it was Dad who helped us out. Without his help, it would have been impossible for my siblings and me to stay at the top of our classes.

We remember your help, Dad, and we are forever grateful to you. It is the foundation in our academic backgrounds that you laid out for us, which is why we are where we are now and are living life to the fullest.

Seminar on Ozone Layer Depletion

There are many special moments between my Dad and me. But the one that strikes me now is that Dad had lectured me in my academic lessons in Biology about ozone layer depletion and the causes and effects.

So when he heard about a seminar that was about to take place in the city on this topic, he made sure I attended it and accompanied me to the venue. It was fun-learning for me, and there were lots of free snacks and drinks during recess intervals. They were unforgettable memories with my Dad.

I know Dad that you made sure I attended this seminar because you wanted the very best for me and desired that I excel in Biology O-level exam.

Family Outings to Chinese Restaurants

Dad loved to taste the food of various kinds. He always asked Mom to cook a variety of dishes, and he would taste and relish them. Sometimes, he even gave breaks to Mom from the routine, and we all went to the best Chinese restaurants in the city and dined together for lunch or dinner.

These are the moments we will always treasure, Dad. You taught us how to bring our tastes in a variety of foods. LOL!

Long Drives Along with Hit English Songs

After Dad purchased a genuine dark cyan Toyota Starlet directly from Japan in the late eighties, he made sure our family went on long drives listening to hit English songs playing in the car’s record player.

Yes, Dad, I would like to savor these moments until my dying day. You taught us how to enjoy the mojo of life and experience thrill and excitement in life.

Watching TV with Dad and Siblings

Together with Dad and my siblings, we always saved time for watching wonderful comedy films on TV. Two of the most popular ones for us were, “The Cosby Kids” and “Family Ties”.

Dad, we honor you because you taught us how to find great interest in TV comedy shows and have fun and share laughs. We learned how to light up our world amid everything and find joy in everyday life.

Conclusion

Dad departed from the world quite early. He didn’t get to experience so many events that took place after he passed away- not even my graduation from the university.

Since then, so many years have passed for us both with highs and lows. Yet, it has been possible for us to soar all along because Dad, you showed us the way, and we followed your footprints in the sands of time.

Dad, you may have left us, but we can never forget your principles, guidelines, disciplines, and directions of life that you had already instilled in us.

Dear Dad, we do reminisce all the moments until now that we shared with you all those years back.

Dad, do remember that you were our best guide, tutor, and father to help us move forward all along.
