    Thinking About My Father...

    I used to think my dad was one of the worst. He didn't play with me when I was a kid, didn't talk with me, had no patience to listen to me. He took no interest whatsoever in anything going on in my life. He was moody, grumpy, and racist (even about nationalities!). He just worked...

    Not Dead But Still....

    No he didn't die but I still lost him. He used to not drink as much as much as he does now. He used to be a fun dad, he used to care and protect me from pain. Now though he drinks everyday, he is not like how he used to be. I remember when he would come home from night shifts...

    the King Is Dead, Long Live the King

    As a boy, I remember being deeply concerned with the mortality of my father.  After work, he would fall asleep on the couch, and before I would go to tap him on the shoulder to wake him up, I wondered if he had passed on and that my attempts to wake him would be futile. ...

    He was murdered in 2009.

    Stabbed to death 24 times in the back and chest by three armed assassins after breaking into his house. They stole 50k in cash and some jewellery from the safe. I can't prove it but I feel that his latest wife was involved in the killing as she was unharmed in the process...
