When we consider all that our fathers do for us, celebrating Father’s Day shows our fathers just how much we appreciate them. Here are some ways in which we can show our love and deepest gratitude.
1. Get to know daddy better!
Most Malaysian dads are main breadwinners of the family therefore most Malaysian kids grow up spending less time with their fathers. During this precious weekend, take this opportunity to encourage dad to share his stories when he was at your age! Tales about his Elvis-inspired haircut and dating past could be slightly cringe-worthy, but you’d be sure you’d take away many precious insights about life and adulting from your old man.
Asians families don’t tend to openly express affection. Perhaps it is time we start challenging the awkward PDE (public display of emotion) policy at home. Surprise your father with a hug, a peck on the cheek, or a simple “I Love You” will do. Sorry, no insurance offered by PolicyStreet if he suddenly becomes a changed man that grins profusely after 😉
3. Appreciate him through gifts
No matter what age our dads are, they’d probably appreciate the same things as when they were a young hot stud. Perhaps a sleek shaving kit, Hot Wheels toy cars, right-fitting dress suits, CDs of legendary rock bands and other collectibles will bring them back to memory lane of…bachelorhood. Give him back a little bit of life he had before you, as well as celebrate that he is more than just a dad, he’s a MAN!
4. Be a learner in life
Your dad had to learn how to manage his moolah when he had you – now it’s your turn. One way is to make sound financial choices from young. Why not start by protecting yourself and new assets with life insurance?
