28th June is Dad’s birthday. If Dad did not lose his battle with cancer, we would have celebrated his birthday at chalet, Aloha Loyang. Unfortunately, we lost Dad on 21st June. Dad’s our chauffeur who will fetch us to school / workplace, and / or back home from Tampines station. He’s also our handy man who will fix / repair new / spoilt equipments at home. In addition, Dad’s a family man who will accompany mum to market on weekends to eat breakfast and buy breakfast for his children who are sleeping soundly at home.
We did not cancel the chalet at Aloha Loyang. Instead, we had a makan gathering with relatives on that day. We ordered dinner buffet from Salad Le Express. The buffet consisted of a fusion of Japanese and Western cuisine.
We need time to accept the loss of our beloved Dad but we also need to eat our meals regularly so that we could look after each other. Dad does not want us to be sad. Instead, he wants us to be happy and to get on with our daily lifestyle.
3rd Jul, Nihon Mura was having 1 colour plate for $1 promo so Papa & Mama treated us lunch. We ordered Chawanmushi, Inari sushi, Tamago sushi, Chuka Kurage Gunkan, Chuka Idako, Cha Soba, Age Tofu, Edamame, Smoked Duck Salad, hot green tea etc.
