Father’s Day 2017

Screenshot (10).png

My father once said to me. “When you become a father, you have the responsibility to look after your family and provide them with the best you could”.

Those words now mean more to me than ever. After 11 years having my own family, my responsibilities grew many folds throughout and naturally, providing them with the best is the least we can do. If there’s one thing that I’ve learnt about being a father, it is the value of respect and keeping a cool head dealing with everyday challenges in front of your family.

My dad is no multi-millionaire nor he is a celebrated individual in his field. He is an ordinary person with a family that he cared for very much. We don’t have fancy meals and pricey toys to satiate our childhood. We certainly don’t travel much let alone visiting countries after countries. But what we have was a pretty good family life with a lot of love and care.

Best dad..

We never question our father’s ability to raise us in the most lavish ways. But God knows how much he must’ve tried and wish that he could. When you have a responsive father and a role model that you could look up to, he is worth more than anyone who could buy you everything in the world.

He earns our respect with the way he conducts himself and if I remembered clearly, there were not once he fell short of providing us with what he was supposed to.  My dad was never the one who speaks a lot, but he is the person who looks after the family with all his might and capacity.

Dad, if you could recall, there was once I threw a tantrum when I couldn’t get some Star Wars activity books from a book fair (equivalent to Big Bad Wolf now) and you went all the way back to the crowded place the day after to buy me a few. I still remember. I  probably wouldn’t have done it for Adrian. I don’t see this as an act of pampering. I see this as your way of showing me how much you loved me and not wanting to disappoint me even for such trivial matter.

To have you as my dad is truly a blessing. You have done so much to raise me up and given me countless advice and wisdom that the only way to repay you is to care for you and not have you worry about me. Happy Father’s Day dad, and I love you!

Adrian made me a Father’s Day card this round. He did so to last year but the work was a little shoddy. This time, it’s a better one. I guess my boy loved and respect me like how I did to my dad. The card was filled with words and scribbles of how much he loved me and thanking me for taking real good care of him.  He even bought a book marker for me with his own lunch money. ♥♥♥

Happy Mother’s Day from the Fresco & Avid team

2017-05-12

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. There is no one more deserving of a day of reckoning than mothers around the world. Be it for her child, her man or the people that surround them. They are the pillar of strength to those who need their support, a fountain of love to those who needed affection and the galaxy of sacrifice to those who require her time and effort.

There are no words enough to describe a mother’s purpose in one’s life. If I could choose a single word to describe my mum..it would be ‘heart’. She does everything wholeheartedly and never cease to take a step back when things got tough. From her care of her 2 children and a breadwinner to her cookings, never once she shied away from her duty. Though not educated extensively, she fills her world with unending learning and teaches us not only the fundamentals of growing up but also the path to becoming a purposeful being.

To my wife, I love you darling and may you be showered with lots of love and care from everyone dear to you.. especially me.

We would like to wish all our fellow family and friends a Happy Wesak day which happens to fall on the 10th May 2017 – that is tomorrow! Those not working, have a great day-off.

Wesak Day is a holiday observed traditionally by the devout worshipers of Lord Buddha, the Enlightened One. Wesak Day is celebrated by Buddhists throughout the world especially in Sri Lanka, Nepal, India, Bangladesh and South East Asian countries which include Indonesia, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia. Wesak Day, or sometimes known as Wesakha, is informally referred to as ‘Buddha’s Birthday’, with the special day being commemorated in honouring the birth, enlightenment (nirvana) as well as passing away (Parinirvana) of Siddhartha Gautama Buddha. The holiday is usually known by its Sanskrit name in Mahayana Buddhist traditions.

Happy தைப்பூசம்!! Thaipusam to all my Indian/Tamil friends…

2017-02-08

The Fresco team would like to take this opportunity to wish all its clients and friends a  Happy Thaipusam this 9th Feb 2017. Although Thaipusam is not as huge as Deepavali in Malaysia, it is celebrated in full force and colors by the Hindu/Tamil community. One can witness the procession at Batu Caves where you will see a number of devotees carrying ‘Kavadis’ as a mean to worship the God of war, Murugan.

To all the devotees, have a pleasant celebration tomorrow and to all the others having an off day, do participate if you’re able to. This is almost an adventure if you’ve not been to one before. The smell of coconut and fresh milk will surely make your day!

Take care and cheers from the Avid & Fresco team!


About Thaipusam (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Thaipusam or Thaipoosam (Tamil: தைப்பூசம், Taippūcam)(Malayalam: തൈപ്പൂയം, Thaippūyam) is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai (January/February). It is mainly observed in countries where there is a significant presence of Tamil community such as India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Mauritius, Singapore, South Africa, Guadeloupe, Réunion, Indonesia, Thailand, Myanmar, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Suriname, Jamaica, and other parts of the Caribbean.

The word Thaipusam is a combination of the name of the month, Thai, and the name of a star, Pusam. This particular star is at its highest point during the festival. The festival commemorates the occasion when Parvati gave Murugan a Vel “spear” so he could vanquish the evil demon Soorapadman. It is commonly believed that Thaipusam marks Murugan’s birthday; Some other sources suggest that Vaikhasi Vishakam, which falls in the Vaikhasi month (May/June), is Murugan’s birthday.

Chap Goh Mei is round the corner!

2017-02-02-1Hey guys! Hoped everyone had a great CNY recently! Those who just got back from their hometown, good job! Also, would like to wish everyone ‘开工大吉’ – basically it means getting back to work with good fortune all year round! Some would just simply drop by their offices and switched on their workstations to show that they are back to work.

I found a pretty cool website with the 2017 calendar pointing out auspicious times for certain activities to be carried out during that particular month. Just point the mouse over to the dates and click it. The right side of the calendar will show the information. http://www.yourchineseastrology.com/calendar/2017/2.htm

Back to the title, Chap Goh Mei, which is Hokkien for “15th night”, symbolises the last day of the Chinese New Year celebrations. Also known as the Yuanxiao Festival (元宵节), it is celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month of the lunar calendar.

Wishing everyone, a happy Chap Goh Mei and may all be blessed with good fortune and excellent health the whole year! Cheers!  Visit my webby @ http://fresco.strikingly.com/ for more exciting estates goodies!

The year of the Rooster!!

After a frenetic New Year celebration, we are now ushering the Chinese New Year which falls on the 28th January 2017. And the Rooster, will be the main animal zodiac sign to grace 2017. The Rooster is tenth in the Chinese zodiac. Each year is related to an animal sign according to a 12-year cycle. Years of the Rooster include 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993, 2005, 2017, and 2029.

2017 Chicken Year

It will also be the ‘Fire Rooster Year‘ – In Chinese element theory, each zodiac year is associated with one of five elements: Gold (Metal), Wood, Water, Fire, or Earth, which means that a Fire Rooster, for example, comes once every 60-year cycle.

I myself is a Snake. And reading through the horoscopes, it seems this year favours me well!  Last year particularly wasn’t that bad but I’m so looking forward to this year where there will be enormous changes in my career as well as my well-being. (“,). And I got to know that Fire Rooster is my buddy this year!!

So, to all my friends who wish to know more about the ‘horoscopes’ about their particular zodiac signs this 2017, please make your way to this fun site:   KarmaWeather

All the best for the rest of the year my fellow friends!
