Having gone through 27+ plus year of my life, my perspectives on lots of things have changed. Parenthood is no longer a bad idea and the way of you look at your own parents have changed…for the better :)

I love my parents in ways that words can never describe (plus, like my dad, I was never good at expressing emotions). They are the reason I am who I am today (for better or worse). Although my mum has retured to rahmatullah the memories and love she gave is embedded in me til the day I die. Seeing her on her death bed, broke me to a million pieces but once those pieces where back in place, it makes you stronger and puts live into perspective. A mother can never be replaced and the woman (singular!) I shall spend the rest of my life with someday will also be based my those memories. In other words, she would have to resemble the qualities I saw in my mum (I think women do the same in comparing their bfs to their fathers, I think lah).

After 27 years I am proud when people say to me “Like father like son”. My dad has always been the greatest rolemodel in my life and will always be. No one will ever come close! Never! Losing my mum was hard enough but I can’t imagine what Tiger Woods must be going through right now as he just lost with best friend, his father. My father will live in me forever and I shall raise my kids as he raised me, in his honor.

Why am I writing this post? To share my value and appreciation for (my) parents. They are the ones that go through thick and thin with you. They never lose faith no matter how degil (I am very :)) one can be. Even if you leave them for 10 years without a word, they would except you back in a heartbeat. You are their blood (maybe thats an animal instinct)

Parents keep the family together, no matter how you wanna avoid it. My father for example made sure that I lived just 50m away from him but understood that I needed to be my own man. Now I definitely appreciate the closeness.

When you are young, you think that parents are unfair and the teenage years often become years of struggle as once yearns for independence, freedom and self-discovery. I never understood my father would hardly show appreciatation for my accomplishments. Rather than congratulating me for A’s I got, he would ask me about the B’s! Back then I thought, “isn’t anything I do good enough for you?” His answer once was “I’m the proudest father in the world but I need to teach you to stay grounded and not to bangga diri”.

Where my father was the alpha male rolemodel, my mum was the kindest, most loving women I know. Their combination makes me extremely hard on the outside but “manja” on the inside. They are who I am today.

Cherish your parents. All their advice, nagging is for a reason. There are more important things in life than money, lost love. Friends come and go. Family is here to stay forever. They are the ones that will there for you. It is not important what the world things of you as they don’t know you and you can never please them all. Your family does.

Sacrifice. Sacrifice some of your time to share time with your family. Parents have sacrified so much in raising you. I would give up my entire career, money and hell ya, I’ll give up my life in a heart-beat if it meant that it could save my parents in some way. I would go through hell and back if that meant I could ensure heaven and happiness for my mum.

Cherish your parents. Try to see them through their eyes. Without them you would not be anywhere!

Herzlichen Muttertag Mama :)
Mit Viel Liebe,
Dein Kleiner :)

I’m serious! ;) ). Let me refresh your memory..”She used to be my only enemy and never let me to be free,Catching me in places that I knew I shouldn’t be,Every other day I crossed the line,I didn’t mean to be so bad,I never thought you wouldbecome the friend I never had.Back then I didn’t know why,why you were misunderstood,So now I see through your eyes,all that you did was love,Mama I love you, Mama I care,Mama I love you, Mama my friend,You’re my friend..” …this song never failed to bring tears to my eyes :'( Ma, I sayang you! :D ..

    “She used to be my only enemy and never let me to be free,
    Catching me in places that I knew I shouldn’t be,
    Every other day I crossed the line,
    I didn’t mean to be so bad,
    I never thought you would
    become the friend I never had.

    Back then I didn’t know why,
    why you were misunderstood,
    So now I see through your eyes,
    all that you did was love,

    Mama I love you, Mama I care,
    Mama I love you, Mama my friend,
    You’re my friend..”

    …this song never failed to bring tears to my eyes :'(

    oh the entry just tug my heart away :'(couldn’t agree more with you bro kevin.i hardly express on how much i love my parents as i’m always this egoist or the so-called ‘tough exterior but vulnerable on the inside’ young woman. i can feel the communication breakdown evidently.but being away from them since childhood and now 11,000kms away! has taught me about everything. i learnt to emancipate my love in my own way and i believed they feel the same way too. last year was shitty for me, there’s bumps and breakdowns but i realized that parents would never turn their back, family will always be there for us. thru the fantastic ups & depressing downs. we strenghten the bond & i’m glad, grateful for that.can’t wait to go back to be with them all :)happy mother’s day to all proud mom across the world :)

  • Kevin Zahri

    yeah the first time you lose someone as close as a dad or mum, its an undescribable feeling that is difficult to cope with BUT once you go through it….it definitely matures you in lots of ways, put life into perspective and enables you to cope with future losses.

    yup,parents is the most important thing. but sometimes, u know we take things for granted. before my bro get married,i just though being a mum is just about cooking,doing laundry,etc. but when my bro get a child,seeing his wife taking care of the baby really makes me appreciate my mum (and all the mothers around da world). getting up at 3 a.m. to comfort the crying baby,not getting enough sleep,MC for sick baby,..i don’t know how they do that.

  • Xis

    I didn’t know you’ve lost your beloved mom till I read your post today. It must be very tough for you back then…Reading your post, and other comments makes me think of my own parents.Honestly, I’ve had one big issue with my own parents esp with my dad. It started when he insisted me to come back to Malaysia, and didn’t allow me to work in the USA although I had a good offer there. Everything turned sour between us, and it still is. But then, one part of me always comforts me saying what they did is out of love, although it’s unacceptable. And no matter what, your parents will always be your parents, and they both cannot be replaced by anybody else. I may be upset with my parents, but deep down, I know I always love them so much. Honestly, I can’t imagine not having them around and with me anymore. And I also don’t know whether I can really make them happy while they are still around. I’ve seen some close friends of mine who have lost their beloved parents, and I honestly felt the sadness. That’s why I’m afraid of losing them. Sometimes I pray that God will take my life first before theirs, so that I don’t have to suffer from losing them. Back to my parents, now I always try to find ways to make them happy. Someone told me the other day, the little thing you give to your parents may be the happiest thing ever happened in their life. So to those who are still having their parents around.. do love them with all your heart. Find that forgiveness in your heart for any mistakes they ever did to you. You will then find your own true happiness.. God Willing!

    Good point Xis and I actually went through similar run-ins with my dad while I was in the US.As you grow older, you go through these struggles with your parents partially because you realize they are human afterall. Now I can say it had lots to do with “darah muda” but thankfully I am passed that, have learned to compromise and pick my battles :)I always saw my dad as my hero growing up and still do now but in a different way. Now he is the person I want to protect the most but still let him be a the hero.

    Hi Bro Kevin, I am sorry to hear that… This means that you are the only “Prince” in your family. Good luck with that title. I know how difficult it is to carry that title, because I am carrying one myself.. ha.ha..By the way, believe it or not, my colleague used to be your schoolmate in MRSM PC. I shall not reveal his name until I got permission from him.I am a Project Manager. I met a lot of ex-MRSM PC’s. I even met the former MRSM PC’s Pengetua, Pn Hjh Wan Tik Sakinah. She is now a Pengarah in MARA and will be retiring soon.I met your classmate in 5N, Hafiz Johari, who got married last year. I met MRSM PC’s chief librarian, Pn Mardiana, She is also in MARA. Not to mention, other students which I do not know whether you still remember them or not.Anyway, from the feedbacks that I’ve got from them, you seems to be Mr Nice Guy, with a little bit of naughty side too… ha.ha… You were also a very promising student back then…Enough about that…. How fluent R U in Germany language? I like songs from Germany and might need you to teach me how to pronounce it correctly and perhaps, interprate it for me.. Is it possible?Anyway, saw U in diari AF recently. Wah, garangnya! Marah Amirul macam budak-budak. Anyway, he deserves that. Memang macam budak-budak pun… ha.ha…Keep it up Bro Kevin!

    Hi Bro Kevin…What do you mean you ‘were’ a promising student? I thought you’ve got Proton scholarship to further your studies in US? That’s good maaa…Good grades is just a bonus to find a job. I was a very good student back then. However, when I went for interview, they don’t even bother to look at my CV… They just gave me 3 questions, ask to write programs within half an hour… Pretty crazy huh? Luckily, I got the job. And yes, I am in software industry…You don’t like German songs? ha.ha… I never heard them all, just some of them got my attention. My sister got a CD from a petrol station in Germany (she was there 4 years back). I like one song from the CD. I even try to sing it, pretending that I am a pro.

    FLUGZEUGE IM BAUCH

    Es war zu jener Zeit
    Wir hatten wieder mal Streit
    Da standst du an der Tür, wolltest zurück zu mir
    Ich sagte:”Klar, mein Schatz”, und schon bei diesem Satz
    Hätt´ ich wissen müssen, was ich erst jetzt gerafft hab´
    Du machst auf Demi Moore, sprichst mit deinen Augen nur
    Und was du versprichst, ist die Wa(h)re Liebe pur
    Ich hab´ dir lange vertraut und deshalb nicht geglaubt
    Was die anderen sagen – mir nicht zu sagen wagen
    Lass mich los, lass mich endlich allein
    Ich unterdrück´ meine Tränen, um wieder frei zu sein
    Ich kann allein sein, und das weisst du auch – und doch
    Hab´ ich Flugzeuge in meinem Bauch

    Refrain:
    Gib mir mein – gib mir mein Herz zurück
    Du brauchst meine Liebe nicht
    Gib mir mein Herz zurück, bevor es auseinander bricht
    Je eher, je eher du gehst – um so leichter, um so leichter
    Wird´s für mich

    Mir scheint, als wär´ es gestern, doch es ist schon lange her
    Ich trau´ mich´s kaum zu sagen
    Doch mein Leben ist jetzt leer
    Ohne dich – du fehlst mir fürchterlich
    Ganz heimlich – da denke ich an dich
    Du bist in meinem Kopf -ein Denkmal aus Acryl
    Doch denk´ ich heute weiter, ignoriere ich das Gefühl
    Des Alleinseins – bin mir selber wieder treu
    Denn heute definier´ ich – mein Leben wieder neu
    Lass mich los, lass mich endlich allein
    Ich unterdrück´ meine Tränen, um wieder frei zu sein
    Ich kann allein sein, und das weisst du auch – und doch
    Hab´ ich Flugzeuge in meinem Bauch

    Refrain (2x)

    Gib mir mein Herz zurück

    I just notice your message at the bottom of your feedback. What is my story? What do you want to know about me? For sure, I am nobody.. Ha.ha… :-)To be honest, I don’t really watch AF.. Just once a while. My family, including my dad love the show a lot! Ha.ha… I just watch it when I have time… My sister is the one who report everything to me.. Sort of like my PA.. Ha.ha..AF is a very good family show… It is just that I normally come back late at night to finish up my work (>10.00pm). I have to travel 80km a day from my house to my office in Damansara. That’s what I call life!FYI, it is now pass 3am and I haven’t sleep yet. Preparing materials for meeting tomorrow morning at 8.30am.Is this info enough for you? Ha.ha…Cheers and enjoy your life Bro Kevin…

    I just notice your message at the bottom of your feedback. What is my story? What do you want to know about me? For sure, I am nobody.. Ha.ha… :-)

    To be honest, I don’t really watch AF.. Just once a while. My family, including my dad love the show a lot! Ha.ha… I just watch it when I have time… My sister is the one who report everything to me.. Sort of like my PA.. Ha.ha..

    Ellia, you find it touching? I find it interesting… Bersusah-susah dahulu, bersenang-senang kemudian…Better start from the bottom then start from the top. If you fall, then you know how to climb back up. That’s what I always thought… Positive thinking…Start as a programmer, now a project manager (within 3 yrs). At least, if anything happens, I still know my technical part…Kewl isn’t it?.. :-P

    To marry a woman who is like ur mother? sounds like ur looking for a mother, not a wife! Siti pun camtu ke? hehe ish2… for me, I’d choose someone who has some good values my mom has but on the other hand, i want her to be different from my mom. kekok pulak nanti rasa macam kawin ngan mak sendiri! sorry ye Kev, if offended.
