If you follow us on Facebook (click here) you might have noticed that last week my parents came to visit us. Because of that and all the preparation I had to make week before there was no new post last Thursday, I missed my second blogversary and my first MILLION VIEWS. Thank you so much for this!
I started to blog back in America, when I started to feel pretty lonely and bored. Through those years many thing have happened – we traveled back to Hong Kong, we moved to Ireland, I spend the most terrifying three months a daughter-in-law can have with Momzilla and we got Biscuit. I guess through this blog you got to know us a little bit better, about our families. But I never really talked about my parents – they were too far to actively be part of our daily life (too bad Momzilla didn’t follow their example, even now she slowly gives us hints she might come soon so brace yourself, Momzilla might be coming).
Now I have a chance to change it with this extremely boring post. As their daughter I have to say they are much more cool to stay with than with Momzilla. Don’t know what Sing thinks about it, but looking how he gets spoiled by my mom and how my parents always take his side I’ll be guessing he doesn’t mind.
My parents are pretty young, Mom is 46, dad will be 48 later this year. Five days after Sing’s birthday and I have to admit they are really alike. I don’t believe in zodiac, stars determination future and so on, but there has to be some connection between them. It takes forever for both to pick what they want to eat, both of them consider themselves the best drivers and everyone else on a road is an idiot and driving-coffin and non of them likes to show too much feelings in public. Did I mention very awkward sense of humor? I’m more like my mom, or I try to be. She’s the most selfless person I know. Many times she sacrifices her own needs just to make me or my dad happy. I wish to be that person, but then being little bit selfish is not too bad.
I love them so much and I’m happy they came. Even Sing took 1.5 days off, just so we can all travel a bit together. We went to Dublin, Galway, Cliffs of Moher and wandered around Limerick. After they left Sing told me that he haven’t seen me so happy in a long, long time. Of course I was happy, I had the one I love the most close to me. Something I haven’t had in years. I wish my friends could join us too.
The house got so empty since they left, but now we are only 3 hours of flight away. And the best thing is my dad didn’t have any heart problems during the flight, I was so scared we will have to drive from the airport to the hospital. The whole week was really amazing and it passed in the blink of an eye. I’m really glad our European-Asian family can reunite more often. Can you believe they haven’t seen each other for almost 2 and a half years, since January 2013?
I hope since we moved here I will be able to write more often about all of us and share with you those wonderful moments. Now enjoy my boring collection of the photos – I tried to pick up the best shots, because my dad made over 2000 photos in 7 days. I’m not even mad, that’s amazing. The photos I chose are not pretty, but showing how laid back and close family we are. I know as their daughter I’m not objective, but I hope everyone will have at least half as loving in-laws as my parents are. They treat Sing as his own, always calling him their son and spoiling. Now we all wonder – what does Sing REALLY thinks about it, haha.
I also added the city views so some of you might even want to visit Ireland after the post!
Have you ever had to leave your family? How did you survive that period? Feel free to share your experience or tell me more about your family – I try to know my dear Readers better 🙂
