This needull touched me. Most Asian parents work very hard to make sure that their children have a better life. They don’t express their love overtly but then they have their own way.
In spite of his work pride, my dad was still a very practical man. He continued singing the same song “Don’t be me” for a good decade more.
I’ll never pay dad a compliment in the same way he has never once praised me (nope, not even once). We have that kind of relationship where we hurl insults at each other to show affection. So he’d probably never get to hear this…
But Pa, you are exactly the person I want to be.
