 It is Father's Day today.  I went through my family album to look for pictures of my late father to share with you here at Xing Fu.  My daddy, Mr Cheah Peng Weng, died of kidney failure at the age of 72 in 2003. He was greatly loved by his family.
Let me tell you a bit about Mr Cheah.
 My dad was a teacher at SMK Sam Tet.  He taught there for about 30 years before his retirement at the age of 55.  He specialised in teaching English Language and Geography.  My dad was also a coach for table tennis and basketball. He was the technical secretary for table tennis for secondary schools in the Kinta district.  My dad's number one passion was photography.  He loved to take photos and would bring his camera everywhere with him.  I take after him.  He also loved plants and gardening.
