Tribute to my parents

Trinity has invited me to join in the father's day tribute, basically to write something about my dad or mum or even, both of them!

I decided to write about both mum and dad, the two persons that I owe my life to. Without them, I wouldn't be here.

My dearest mummy, the most beautiful lady with a heart of gold. She is poise, gentle and smile is always on her face. She is the most optimistic person in the family and believes everything is achievable if you put your heart to it. She always reminds us to face life with an open and happy heart as life is just too short to be miserable. The other very important teaching mum passes on to me is to be presentable all the time especially when going out meeting people. She has taught me, we being a lady need to take care of ourselves, be presentable and confident to bring out our best and being married or a mum should not deter it. My mum is a full time housewife, taking care of both my elder brother and me, doing all the cooking, cleaning and whatnot, and never a single complain coming out of her. She is always so willing to give. She, is the sunshine of our family.

My dearest daddy, now a retiree, is the best father I could ever hope for. He is respectable and yet funny the same time. He provides the best he could get for us. I remember and always will, how hard he has worked and saved to get my bro and I where we are today. He has provided us a steady foundation (i.e. education) for I can now enjoy a better life. Daddy also plays a main role in teaching us to be a better person, and till today, he is still constantly reminding us to be respectful, not being wasteful and never look down on people. He, is the foundation and pillar of our family.

I am thankful to be born into this family, and proud to be the daughter of these two very special persons. So, on this special day, I want to thank my parents for bringing me up and for all that they have done for me. Last but not least, HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

Hi Doreen, beautiful tribute. Love your lovely pics.Beauty sure runs in your family.
My father taught me to be tough, my mom taught me love, I no longer walk in their shadows, but in the light they showed me.
Parents are God's angels to us.
You stay gorgeous, Doreen and have a nice day, Lee.

The bridal portraits were a retake about 5 years ago. Well, it was heavily photoshopped by the studio to create a better and younger looking couple :)

My parents are in their 50s now.
