Papa – Remembrance of My Father is a tribute to my beloved father who was not in the kitchen but through self sacrifice ensured a good and stable home.
The last time I saw him, we parted at a busy mall in Penang. It was a strange and public place to say our last goodbyes. He had recently had a pacemaker implanted and seemed to be making some progress. After our lunch at Queensbay Mall, I was leaving for the airport and my brother was taking him home to rest.
We walked together for a while as though we were just window shopping. It was a seemingly casual scene but my heart was bursting inside. Something in his eyes as he looked at me told me that I would not see him again on this side of eternity. Papa was a man of few words. He spoke more through his eyes than his lips.
