tough picture daddy

This is by far one of the toughest picture of my papa, for me.

To see his smiling face on his WhatsApp profile, and to see the last WhatsApp message I se

nt to him on 30th April 2014, to let him know we’re coming home that weekend.

That is also the weekend after we returned from New Zealand not long; and it was for that trip I had a nice although brief chat with him.

I had told him that I found travelling so difficult, because of the high costs and even higher opportunity costs, to which he had told me:

Nigel, please go with your wife for a well-deserved holiday la. You all work so hard and hadn’t gone anywhere. Money can always make back one.

And with his encouragement, I went ahead with the holiday, and ignored the costings of such a holiday.

To which when I returned, I realized that New Zealand was his dream destination, and I had told him that next April 2015, we will go for a New Zealand holiday with him, because throughout the trip in New Zealand, I kept thinking that

Papa will like it here in New Zealand.

Those thoughts filled my mind as I fished, explored nature there – I was pretty convinced that he’d love it there in New Zealand.


That’s the last WhatsApp I had sent him, and the last conversation too. Pa, how I miss you. Let’s do lunch again.

This is a tribute and ruminations of my late papa, Daniel Chua. He was born on 27th Feb 1955, and he was called to the Lord on 24th May 2014 (59 years old). A tribute was created to him at DanielChua.com.
