My ayah is a father of little words with his children but when he gets to the right topic and the right quorum, i need to give him some signals for him to finish his 'lecture and speech', fearing that he will hold back the quorum.
Still, i am privileged to have an ever-functioning communication channel with my Ayah - thanks to my good listening and attentive skills (that i have to thank my Mak).
Happy Father's Day, Ayah
