Ode to Parents...

As most of you viewing this gallery would know that Mum passed away peacefully on November 20, 2016 at the age of 86 years. Dad passed away in October 2005.

Parenthood can be best defined as an infinite marathon race - it only ends at your last breath, but the spirit stays with the next generation. Like most of us parents, she endured a tumultuous journey of life, complete with joys and tribulations. In the past few years before leaving, she shared with me much of her most private and deepest thoughts of family, that only another parent could understand. Much of that will be another chapter for all to read...

I thought it may be nice to assemble all older photographs taken over the years, to show my parents own journey of parenthood. This is a visual gallery of 3 generations - parenthood is always a lifetime 'work-in-progress'.

This gallery will be updated regularly with as much images that I can find in my archives, so please return occasionally to see what's new. For now they are in random order, without captions. When the gallery is complete, perhaps in a few months, I will update with more data.

The images here are low-res and not suitable for printing - if you want a high-res image for personal use, please email to me.
