Day 4: Mom and dad intro
Day 4: Your parents
Ok… I have no idea what this question wants me to tell about specifically, so I just give a bit of an intro about them. Furthermore, time is running out, was busy with web design today that I almost forgot about the challenge. Funny thing is, I could make one unrelated blog entry earlier in a snap. *facepalm*. So here goes..
This is my mom, Angela. Born and raised here Kg. Kitobu, Inanam. Mom descended from a big Kadazan family of Siawan Katung Kunsar from Penampang. When grandparents got married, they decide to reside in Kg. Kitobu. Mom is the eldest from 8 siblings, this is the pic of her at Sandakan, I’m not sure which part of Sandakan this is though.
Mom is a great housewife, always do her best to to keep the house in order while dad is out for work. She once love to make crossstitch, and weaving together beads in her free time. Now mom runs a small business in her mini store for the family since dad passed away. She is still hardworking as ever, since 2 of my little sisters are still studying.
This is my late dad, Bonius. He was born in Kg. Kelawat, Kota Belud, in the Aling family. I’m not really sure what has happened, but dad was later adopted to the Lusi family at Kg. Kironggu, which is the neighbouring village of Kg. Kitobu. At his 20s’, dad moved to Iraq to work, thats where almost all of his photos we had in our family photo collection. When dad marries mom, they decided to settle down in Brunei, me and my two brothers was born there.
Dad was a great cook, great with tools, a great friend, and a great motivator for me. It was a big loss for me when dad succumbed to cancer in 2009, its like the world is coming down at me. I still remember his last words to me “Don’t be careless with your money”, and life is never the same again without him. I wish that someday I can achieve what I really want to have just like my dad. And that day, I will make dad and mom proud of me…
All children must look after their own upbringing. Parents can only give good advice or put them on the right paths, but the final forming of a person’s character lies in their own hands. ~ Anne Frank
