This unforgettable incident had happened to me 15 years ago but I never thought it could change my life forever.
Let me go back down the memory lane and recall what really happened back in early May 2002. Just like any other freshly hired employees, I had to participate in the compulsory orientation program at the training center. It is normal for big companies to conduct a similar program for their new employees.
Most parents would be proud to have their kids doing well in sports. As for me, I would be satisfied if my kids are able to swim and ride a bike. These have been my very least targets, apart from their spiritual, psychological and academic goals.
As a father who works from home, I am thankful that I have more time to spend with my family. It is fun to talk to my kids like explaining simple life philosophies while juggling with my daily responsibilities (such as freelance coder, side businesses e.g. selling ‘takoyaki’, teaching and consulting).
During this holy month, I would like to wish you Ramadhan Kareem Al Mubarak.
All praise be to Allah s.w.t. for His Guidance, and Blessings allowing us to be here in the holy month of Ramadhan.
