The person I admire most is my father. My
father is a man of medium built and height.
He runs a small textile shop on Arab Street
which provides the family with a good and
steady income. But, my father actually
came from a very humble background.
My father was born to a poor family in
Malacca. My grandparents could not even
afford to send my father for higher
education. After completing hsi studies in
his village, he helped my grandfather in the
At the age of eighteen, father decided to
leave the village and head to the city in
search of work. He found work as a peon in
a small textile company. He was very hard-
working and his superiors were pleased
with him. They advised my father to
continue his studies by taking part-time
classes. He took their advice and enrolled
himself in evening classes. He learnt English
and other subjects n these classes.
After a few years, he got himself a diploma
from his studies. Very soon afterwards, he
was promoted and sent to manage the
Singapore branch. My father was never a
spendthrift and he never drank or smoked.
He met my mother when he came to
Singapore and they were married the
following year. My eldest brother was born
a year later.
My father had only worked for that one
company. He constantly improved himself
and grew with the company until he was
appointed as one of the company's
directors. When the old patriarch who
founded the company had passed away, his
two sons decided to sell the Singapore
branch to my father. And so, my father
finally became the boss of the very firm for
which he had worked for.
My father is truly my role model. He has
given the family everything it needs. He sets
himself as an example for us to follow. He is
never angry without a good cause and is
always cheerful, kind and helpful and I hope
that, by his example, I would grow up to be
like him, too.
