Double the joy
His two kids complete him as a father and a man.
BEING a loving and responsible father is no easy task as it requires a lot of time, effort and “heart”! I have had my fair share of ups and downs, joys and frustrations, with parenting, which is not just a nine-to-five job but a lifelong one.
I became a father in 1997 when my first child, Kah Hui, came into this world. The first few months were indeed very challenging for my wife, Kheng, a school teacher, and me as we made immense adjustments to our lives with a newborn child.
We learned to feed, bathe, change the nappies and take care of our son while discovering much about parenting and how a young life lives.
An active baby, Hui would stay alert till the early hours of the morning. That meant Kheng and I had to take turns to look after him.
