If you guys followed me on Twitter, you’ll notice I tweeted this almost a month ago :
I’m not sure what got into my Dad that day but after I got home from work that evening (and was chatting away with my brothers at the dining area), mom suddenly brought 3 paper bags for us and when we looked inside, there was iPad 2 in all the three paper bags. My brother and I was stunned for a while because Dad only gives us presents if we have achieved something i.e. graduated from school, secure a high cost business project or something equal to that. Dad’s the kinda guy that doesn’t spoil his kids.
However, after letting the iPad sit in its box for nearly a month, I finally opened it yesterday (yes, it took me almost a month to unbox this thing) and used it. It surely is handy when I’m on the go and need to get online but I still won’t put away my laptop anytime soon. I still need the mouse and the keyboard especially when I have to type pages and pages of documents or when I have to edit tons and tons of photos.
Of course I am absolutely grateful for this gift. I am also happy that Dad is giving me all sorts of advice for my business these days. He is also helping me sort through some business opportunities to further expand my business and I am so grateful for everything. When I was younger I would repel at this label but now I embrace it with joy – I am “Daddy’s Girl”.
Here are my favourite Dad Quotes of all time :
“Fathers are the ones that pick you up and give you the courage to do stuff you never thought you could.” – movie The Game Plan.
“Men are rats. Listen to me, there are fleas on rats. Worse than that, there are amoebas on fleas on rats. I mean, they’re too low for even the dogs to bite. The only man a girl can depend on is her daddy.” – movie Grease.
