爸爸我爱您

没有爸爸那来的我。在这里想用另类的角度来诠释这位最敬爱的人。
爸爸是大男人的男人。大男人每天早上需要小女人哄他起床。
爸爸是个忠厚老实含蓄的男人。
大白天里,只能听闻到他叫妈妈: “a,你来一下….”。
可是,时而夜归,他们会互唤对方的名,就像恋爱中的情人般,
“x凤,开门。。。。”
“x桂,来了。。。。”
哈哈!趟在被窝里的我还是听到了!

 言归正传,这里想叙说小时跟爸爸一同做过的工。
栽种芋头,香蕉,油棕和橡胶是主要的家庭经济来源。
爸爸跟家庭成员之间是互动的。我们一同劳动,一同进退,一同分享劳动的快乐。

当天还没亮,鸡啼伴着半梦半醒,一家大小,便头顶胶灯,身背胶桶,带着胶刀走进橡胶林里割胶。
郊外的园野,除了蚊子天使般的吻,偶尔还有那黑红螞蚁的眷恋。
有的胶园杂草丛生。蛇,鼠,猴,莹火虫,蜈蚣,各种蜘蛛等昆虫的出没是司空见惯的。
由于黑漆一片,虽然戴着胶灯,小小的身躯还是会被迎面而来的大蜘蛛网黏上。
“迷路的蜘蛛啊!这回你又黏在我身上的那一处呢?”
不久之后,太阳便慢慢升起,浓雾也渐渐散去,大自然是多么的美丽啊!
爸爸就这样跟我们一前一后,一行行的割着橡胶树。
从清晨六点到中午十二点左右,手持胶刀,划破树皮让胶汁流进胶杯里。
千棵的胶树通常在上午十点多割完。
爸爸会跟我们一同坐下来,休息片刻。
然后收集胶杯里的胶汁,直到烈日当空,把一天的收成用单车载去橡胶加工场便买为止。

偶尔,午饭后,小睡片刻,大约四点多,我们又会到芋头或油棕园。
施肥,浇水,拔草,拾油棕果跟油棕叶。爸爸也会喷农药和除草剂。
直到天黑。
就这样,爸爸一路都是个可靠负责勤俭的人。

当然工作之馀也不忘娱乐。爸爸会和妈妈一面劳作一面聊天说笑。
而我,在情窦初开的时候,也会一面劳作一面唱着流行歌。
从早上开工便一首首地唱。唱着王杰,潘美辰,周华健,齐秦等无数的专辑里的歌。
就这样,爸爸也成了我的忠实听众。

日子一天天的过,小鸟一天天的长大,很快地到了展翅高飞的时候。
当时,女人不必读太多书的思想还没根除。
但爸爸却不重男轻女,默默地为每一个儿女的将来精打细算跟储蓄。
让每一个子女在需要的时候都能受到良好的教育。
爸爸的恩情,是一生都还不了的。

现在还收藏着离乡背井时爸爸送的闹钟。
它陪我渡过了苦读诗书的寒窗岁月,激起了无数的奋斗。
饮水思源,因为有爸爸,才有今天的我。

在这里,
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
祝爸爸父亲节快乐!
谢谢您爸爸!

Thank you v v_lim & buds!

Hi v v lim, thank you for sharing your touching story.

Also a big thank you to buds. For without the translation, the touching story was totally lost on me!

…I was told by my hubs from his personal experience as a kid that the mosquitoes in rubber plantations are very super able to sting thru’ normal clothes!! And they come in swarms!! Definitely no easy task!

 

 

 

嗨,vv_lim,

嗨,vv_lim, 你的文笔很好,很欣赏你写的文章。词语表达贴切,流畅,很能让读者感受其意境。发现马来西亚的华校生华文都很强。在博客里读到好些邻国朋友所写的文章, 都非常赞叹他们的语文表达能力, 总觉得他们可以出散文集啰!你是独中生吗?发现在大学里所接触过的独中生成绩都很棒!

Short summarized translation: A very well written piece of work that uses appropriate words/phrases that allows readers to immerse in the story easily. Finds that Chinese standard in Malaysia is much higher than in Singapore.

Thanks buds for taking the

Thanks buds for taking the time to translate, despite your limited Chinese. Very thoughtful of you.

Please help me as i go along...

I was touched to bits reading this article… very… very… slowly. 

Not reading slow cos it was touching, but cos i read very slow. 

Hehehee!

 

Thought we should share with all non-Chinese speakers/readers

as well.. So with an English version, we can all enjoy the exquisite

joy of her childhood memories with Father.

 

So, in appreciation of her article… here’s a portion of what little i

understood from vv_lim’s blog on Father’s Day. Please dun stone

me… … but pls do correct me as i go along, with my

limited CL knowledge.

 





Dad with us on this one trip to the rubber tree cutting. From the early morning around 6 o’clock to 12 o’clock, armed with plastic knives Father cut through the bark to allow plastic juice flowing into the plastic cup.

Usually by 10 plus, Father would’ve finished cutting a thousand trees. Father would sit down with us for a short break. Then afterwards followed by the collection of plastic juice in the cups begin… walking a mile long in the hot sun until all the work is done.

With a day of Father’s harvest using his bicycle to go to the rubber factory, it can only fetch a cheap wage. Occasionally after lunch and a short nap until about approximately 4 plus, once again we will arrive at the taro or oil palm gardens. Fertilizing, watering, weeding, picking up the oil palm fruit and oil palm leaves….. and he would also spray pesticides and herbicides…. till dark. It was just in this same way……. all the way…….  Father was the responsible and reliable person who went all the way for us through his thriftiness and hard work.

Of course, during the course of work they did not forget about entertainment. While Father and mother were working, on one side you can hear Father’s warm voice singing… and you can hear Mother chatting. And as for me, at the time when i first started, I too, will be working and singing… from Wang, Pan Mei-Chen, Emil Chau, Chin and so many other songs in the album. In this way, my father became my loyal audience.

Every day that goes by……. day by day a small bird grows up quickly to the time it will fly…               

At that time, a woman did not need to read or study or even think too much to repay the load on men however Father never had any negative thoughts or believed in men being superior over women nor silently belittling them and their position. Through Father’s meticulous planning and careful accounting for the future of his children… sons and daughters alike… he knew that during that time, every child should receive and is deserving of a good education.

Like an idiom i was once told…

When you drink water, think of its source…

So don’t forget where your happiness comes from…

Because of Dad, I have today.

Here, I wish Dad a happy Father’s Day! Thank you, Father!

This article makes me cry

This article makes me cry buckets, till DH came over to check whats wrong with me. 

My father is a very distance person to me.  When I was young, whenever I asked him about something, he always asked me to go ask mom.  When I grew up, we do not get along because of how his sisters treat my mom and us.  Hes never the one that I goes to when I need help, he didn’t even attend DS 1st month celebration, which my mum couldn’t forgive him of.  Yet, when we didn’t address him during meal times, my mom will remind us about our manners.  Although they are not on speaking terms, she still cooks 2 meals a day for him, does his laundry, cleans his room, mend his clothes, etc.

It is known that girls marry man that is like their father, definately not me.  My sis and I both chose our life partners that is quite the opposite of my dad.

Thats why this article makes me sob, cos I pray for my father to be just a percentage of the father in the article. Hopefully, he can change for the better before its too late.

We did celebrate father’s day by booking for a nice dinner and special order his favourite roast suckling pig and yet he choose to work additional OT on that day….

one generation to another

tx,

let’s pass e same love from one generation to another 🙂

让爱代代相传。

 

 

Great Article, very

Great Article, very touching…

Happy Father’s day!

I remember

My dad is definitely not a saint.. he’s as ordinary as you or me… of all his vices, I remember how he used to break our hearts by gambling away his earnings and that was the cause of all the quarrels between mum and him when we were young….

BUT, he did change for the better and I know he cares deeply for each of his children even though he’s the traditional type of father who has never demonstrated his love in words or hugs… he showed it in other ways…. I will remember how he walked me to the roadside to hail a cab to take me back home … how he woke up early in the morning to buy our favourite breakfast… All I wish now is for him is a long and healthy life… Happy Father’s Day, papa!
