No new car. No new guitar. No new saxophone. No fancy third-rate meal in an overpriced restaurant that I could cook far better myself. This morning my beautiful, beautiful girl and my beautiful, beautiful son told me that I'm a good daddy. That's more than enough for me.

I believe I can top that. My daughter was born on 8/8/2000. Most people think of it as a great gift for fathers day but I usually end up taking a back seat to her party and spend the day picking up friends and birthday cakes and all the rest that goes along with throwing a party for half a dozen young girls. About two weeks ago she started on her plans for this year, I explained it fell on a Monday, that she would be busy in a hockey camp for the day and that besides I was kind of tired spending all of father days organizing her birthday parties and that maybe this year we could take a rest. She suggested delaying it to the weekend and that was kind of where we left it. On the morning of her birthday she came in gave me a big hug and a hand made card, when I said happy birthday she covered my mouth and said today wasn't her birthday, that today is fathers day and every time mention was made of her birthday she denied it was saying it is fathers day! But thebirthday party is tomorrow and I am organizing x 8, 11 year old girls in how to make a birthday cake....
My daughter was born on Chinese Lover's Day (7/7 on the Lunar Calendar) which was only a day or two before Father's Day so of course her birthday was more of a big deal than Father's Day. We all had a great day though. She gave me a card and a hug. Then I gave her a card and a hug. She gave me a little gift and I gave her a little gift. Then we all went to Fisherman's Wharf in Danshui. It was a beautiful, nice breezy day and the only problem was the traditional snacks on the old street. I'm not really a fan. Everything else was just fantastic!
