It’s been now three years since my father left us to be with the Lord after a series of complications due to a stroke in January 2007. I’m currently back home in Kuching. Since today is the 3rd anniversary of his passing, I decided to take the day off from work & focus on reminiscing the old times with my daddy dearest by going through my family’s old photo albums. Initially I was planning to scan some of the photos with our old scanner at home but couldn’t seem to find the cable to connect to my laptop. But I did manage to dig out an USB cable for my camera (I forgot to pack one in my camera bag this trip) and decided to take pics of the photos instead for this blog post.

Here are some photos of my daddy… down the memory lane…

Daddy was quite a sportsman during his younger days. (I sure did NOT inherit that part of his genes tho. :P)

He won quite a few trophies actually... too many that I decided its too much to share it all on this blog. ;)

I’m proud to know that my daddy’s a very fun-loving person. His presence always brightened up a party and he loves to make other people happy. 😀 Many told me that I inherited quite a few of his “social-able” traits. 😉

He had this amazing skill of roasting a piglet to perfection everytime we hosted a party. I so so so miss these moments.

As I was leafing through the many albums, I realized there were not many family portraits taken with my daddy as he was always the one behind the camera. These are the only few (good-clear ones) that I’ve managed to find for this post. There were much lesser family portraits when we were much older. 🙁

When I was still very little... during a trip to Sabah.

His passion was in the construction field. And I’m glad when he left, he was already doing what he loves. 🙂
