Chapter 1:

One day my mom needed to go to Sweden. Oh! I forgot to tell you about me!

Hi, my name is Nur Zulfa Imani. You can also call me Nur! I live in Glasgow with my mom, dad, big brother and little brother.

One day my mom needed to go to Sweden. My mom said to my dad that we all can come, so we all packed up and went on the car to Edinburgh Airport. We did anything that we needed to go on the aeroplane.

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).
