The Best Learnings From Ayah – Lesson 1

It’s been a while since I last blogged. I was giving myself a break after my dad’s & grandmother’s demise. I did a lot in between, but didn’t write about it. Guess I wasn’t ready.

But now, the spirit of writing is back! I can’t wait to share with the world on my everyday experiences & learnings. So I’ve decided to kick start with The Best Learnings From Ayah!

It’s a compilation of the best of the best things I learnt from my dad, be it from his actual advice, life stories, or my own observations. These learnings give impact to me everyday, so I hope it’s beneficial to all the readers. This is a tribute to you, Ayah. 🙂

Lesson 1: When life is tough, don’t complain. Face it, and strive to be better.

My dad had a hard life as a kid. He was born in a nice village near the sea. He lost his dad as early as 4 years old. His mom worked as a maid at one of the British people who managed the area.

Instead of complaining, he helped his mom to earn living, without compromising his studies. He still goes to school everyday without fail, yet wake up very early in the morning to get some rubber from the nearest estate.

And yes, there’s some palm oil trees, coffee trees & various other trees that he helped his mother to get the fruits for living.

Also, after school, he rode his bicycle around the village, selling ice. And then helped his mother doing errands at her employer’s house or at home.

All that when he was at primary school.

And we, complaining about our hard life everyday, blaming others, and do nothing to make our lives better? Shame on us.

Will share more in the next blog!

    And to add to the topic that u’re at, yes, ayah, despite all those hardships when he was young, but he was really smart! Teringat ayah pernah cite bila subjek maths je, cikgu dia suruh dia balik rumah masakkan utk dia. Sbb ayah was so good in maths, x payah belajar dah. Haha…
