Ba-Ba Day (2014)

Originally written 8/8/07 and accidentally posted to 8Asians:

8/8 (Eight-Eight in Mandarin is pronounced “ba-ba.” Father in Mandarin is also pronounced “ba-ba”) is Father’s Day in Taiwan. Even though we refer to him as “Dad” in English, 95% of the time, we called him “Ba-Ba.” Usually, my Dad would be in Taiwan at this time of year, so I would have to remember to call him on 8/7 so I could wish him a happy Ba-Ba Day on the right day.

Happy Ba-Ba Day, Dad.

We miss you.

Dad & Joz - 10-04-2007

I originally couldn’t remember where this picture was taken. I knew that it was taken on October 7, 2004, and thanks to my blog, I was able to go back figure out the context of this photo. I think this was taken in Rowland Heights, just before my Dad was going to get on to a shuttle bus that would have taken him to LAX to board a flight back to Taiwan.

Thinking of Dad… 8 years after his passing…

This year, I was able to make it to a Saturday chant service for my Dad.

I can’t believe another year has gone by and with the success of (my third and final) V3con behind me, I’ve been hunkered down and laying low for the last few weeks. My “retirement” from organizing V3con is now public and official. I look forward to going next year as a regular attendee!

A year ago, my niece was a tiny baby. Now she’s a year old and not so tiny… she was walking on her own when I visited her last week!
