3 little words

I like the Plain White Tees' new song.
"1 thing, 2 say, 3 words, 4 what I'll do....I love you".
Very catchy. Will get the CD.
After work today, will have lunch with Daddy before he flies off to US for a holiday. They're off to see Niagara Falls. Hope they have a great holiday.
Ethan and Ewan doesn't get to see their grandfather so often cos' he still lives in Taiping. One day, I hope that I can send Ethan back to Taiping to school there and spend a few years of his life in a small town.
I know my character was shaped from growing in a small town, and it's a good thing to live there. Big cities have too many "bad" elements which tempt the young.

I'd like to remember this quote today from a great singer/songwriter.

Some people never say the words 'I love you'.
It's not their style to be so bold.
Some people never say those words: 'I love you'.
But, like a child, they're longing to be told.
- Paul Simon

Love you, Daddy.

Hi MWS!
Ah, so you love Taiping too?
I think it's absolutely blessed, that place. And for me to be born there is totally awesome!
And yes, I will retire there as well, although that's about 25 years away.
I don't know if it's the water/air in Taiping, but my dad at 75 looks like 55!
