This happens a month ago in a bus on our way home…
Me: “See… you so fat.”
小tz touching my stomach and hers commented: “Daddy, why you and I all fat fat?”
Me: “Well, it’s time to exercise. Shall we go hiking during weekends?”
小tz: “Ok daddy!”
Fast forward 3 weeks ago on our hiking trip through the park connectors…
小tz: “Daddy, see… the leaves is yellow!”
小tz: “No, no… see, the leaves is white, err… no that is brown!”
小tz: “Sorry daddy, the leave is green there! Hee hee…”
小tz: “Daddy, I like hiking but next time can we not go to places where there are no monkeys? I hate monkeys!!!”
小tz: “Daddy, I am hungry… … … can we eat now?”
At the end of the 1.5 hours trip with 小tz…
小tz: “Daddy, what are you doing?!”
Me: “Looking for your off switch.”
小tz: “Sorry daddy, I don’t have any off switch on me. Mummy didn't born me with that. Hee hee… ”
Me: “… … …”

This happens some 20+ years ago when I was still young and energetic.
I was going round the old circular road near to our old National Stadium. The only place in Singapore then where there was less traffic with lots of fresh air in the evening.
Closing the gap between the group of runners in front, I was deciding if I should overtake them to continue with my training. Seeing that I am still hesitating, my instructor moved towards me, gives me a tap on my shoulder and encouraged me:
"You have done more rounds than them. It's about time you pick up your speed to be in front of them."
Feeling encouraged, I checked to make sure I don't knock into others, and then picked up the courage to overtake the group of runners.
Wow! That feeling was satisfying. After so many rounds of following behind this group of runners, I finally have the courage and determination to speed up. Looking back at the group of runners trying so hard to catch up with me, it just gave me the awesome feeling to continue my dream.
My dream to get a license, stop driving an "L" plate car and being nagged by my driving instructor.

I discovered that most father ended up eating this when I chatted with 2 other fathers recently.
No, I am not talking about nuggets, fries and apple juice from McDonald's. And if you are single, or you happened to be the few fortunate souls, I am talking about meals leftover by our kids.
K i d s M e a l s
Looking at the father next to me, having his second round of food, like me, I commented: "Hey, it's getting better now, right?!"
"You are so right!" he supported.
"It was worst when the kids were much younger, serious." joined the third father.
"Yeah. I totally agreed. Sigh..." I said.
Giving me a pat on my shoulder, the second father echoed: "Eating porridge that tastes like nothing. I been through that too."
Looking at each other one last time, we buried our heads to finished our Kids Meals.
The duty of fathers. Pitiful hor? Haha... so if we happens to be fat, please understand our difficulties with diet control.
Just ate sushi with yt and 小tz last weekend. yt told me that they wanted to eat the week before but as I was working during that weekend, they decided to wait till I am available.
Tears almost dripped from the corner of my eyes when I told yt not to wait for me next time.
"Daddy, if you are not around, who is going to help me finish all the rice rolls left over by 小tz?!"
Rice rolls? Look at the photo, friend. Yes, the rice portion of the sushi. 小tz loves the meaty top so yt and I teamed up to finish the rest of the sushi.
"High 5 darling!" Haha...
Oh yes, I understand and will still loves you even if you became fat.
