The greatest gift I ever had, it came from God, and I call him Dad.

If you are given a wish by God, what will you ask for?
I'm a girl full of regrets. I got jealous of father and daughter relationship which are more like best friends. I regretted of not getting close to my dad ever since I was a little girl. Well, my dad is still fully healthy, but it is too awkward for me to get close to him now. My dad, I could say that he is a type of man who never really shows his expressions. He never even once told us (his children) that he loves us, but I know he does. At some point, he could just spoils us, whatever we ask for, as long as it was affordable, he would have buy it for us. At some point, we could ask for his food and he would give us whole. He may never said that he loves us, but I know that deep down inside his heart, he has this unconditional love for us. The same thing goes for me. I still can't say that I am a good daughter yet. I still disappoint my parents, and I talk back to them sometimes. But deep inside, I really care and love them even though I couldn't express my feeling. I hug my mom when I feel proud or happy or thankful to her, but never even once had I hug my dad. I think that I am too grown up to hug my dad now. The best memory I had with my dad, was the moment when I got to hold my dad's hand and when we act crazy inside the 3D Museum, although it was just for a while, for a picture to be taken.

My dad, to be described in detail, he is someone who literally knows how to style himself. Well, my mom did help him all the time but my dad is cool enough to know the latest fashion trends. He got tattoos on his hands, his back and his leg. He got piercing on his left ear. He knows how to go for a pair of maroon loafers, and how much he should unbutton his white shirt and roll its sleeve up to look awesome. He knows when to shave, and had his haircut. He had a great sense of style for sure.

It saddens me whenever I think of how much my parents are aging. If I could have a wish granted, I would wish for a chance to go back to my childhood, to a time where I can still proudly hug my dad and tell him I love him. Well, this is a wish that is logically impossible to be granted, I know. The present is what's important now, and I need to show my dad how much I love him and care for him now. So I got an idea, to give him a surprise on this upcoming Father's Day (June 18th) and I look up into some Men's Clothing, then only I found Bonobos. My dad, being compared to me, he is an extrovert who's not afraid of heading out wearing bright colors. One of the collection from Bonobos which I think will fit my dad the most is this Men's Chinos, which offers various styles of pants with a full range of colors. It's a special way to show that my love for him is endless, that he is special to me.


Dear Daddy, you are my first love and you'll always be. With love, Cinthy.

  1. I think asian parents are that way, they are not as expressive in showing their love and affection. I get what you mean. What's important is the present and you try to show him that you care as much as you can and make your parents proud <3

  4. This is a touching post. I thin you're not alone with this. Asian parents are not as expressive when it comes to showing their affections. Although, some Asian children are the same, I'm kinda guilty with that.

  7. I understand it being hard to get close now as it's the way it's always been, but just make sure you appreciate every second with your parents and they know how much you love them, through actions xx.

  9. This is so sweet, I love reading it. We have the same culture when it comes to expressing our love for them, I never said I love you to my dad until on his deathbed. It was so sad but at least I've said it. I can say that to my mom now but only on the phone when she's far away not really face to face, I guess I have to change that too. Thanks for sharing this, it's a sweet inspiration.
