Starchild readers sent in so many photos, drawings and letters from all over Malaysia to wish their beloved fathers a Happy Fathers Day.
Fathers Day is celebrated every third Sunday in June. It is a special day to show our love and appreciation for our fathers. Whether one calls him ayah, daddy or papa, he is someone many children adore and look up to. Here are the inspiring messages from Starchild readers.
Jayden Tan Li Sheng, eight, writes: “To my daddy, John Tan, I love the meals that you prepare. They provide us energy and taste great. Your mushroom spaghetti and potato soup are delicious. Thank you so much for the fantastic meals that you cook for the family. I love you, Dad. I wish you and all fathers in the world, “Happy Fathers Day!”
Jodie Tan Li Juen, 12, writes: “One of the lessons that Daddy has taught me is to be kind and compassionate. Thank you for being there for me each day. You have showered me with so much love and guidance. God has blessed me with a wonderful father. Happy Fathers Day to my awesome dad!"
Debria Preethi Jeyarajah, 10, adores her father because he is loving, caring and forgiving. “He plays ball, board games and card games with me, and I get to curl up with him to watch movies at night. He helps to clean my fish tank too. Even though Daddy works in Kuala Lumpur, he makes it a point to video call me daily. My dad is very special to me.”
“My father is smart and I enjoy arm wrestling with Daddy. I wish him a Happy Fathers Day,” writes Chuah Seng Koon, five.
Marcus Bek-Nielsen, six, writes: “My drawing shows my sister, Daddy and I fishing. Happy Fathers Day!”
“Our dad will always be our living breathing superhero,” writes Aatirai Prabu, 12.
Seven-year-old Wong Cheng Yang says his jovial father is the hero in the house. “My father’s name is Wong Yu Lian. He is 37 years old. He cheers us up when we are sad. My daddy doesn’t like to go to the office during the pandemic. I love my daddy very much.”
Younger sibling Wong Jie Ern, five, writes: “My father is tall. Every night, my father tells us stories and on some nights, he asks riddles. My father plays Mario 2D World with me. He is the best father.”
Eight-year-old Sophie Yap Jyn Qing is grateful to have a caring and loving father. “Thank you Daddy, for buying ice cream for me and bringing me on holidays. I will always treasure the wonderful times we have spent together. I love you, Daddy!”
Younger sibling Claire Yap Jyn Wei, six, says: “I love Daddy because he takes care of me at night when I’m unwell. He takes me cycling, and helps me with homework too. I enjoy spending time with Daddy!"– Compiled by Sheela Chandran
