Culture and Traditions

We are back from a long day under the sun. You're probably thinking we went to the beach or a park. Nope. We went to the Muslim cemetery at Chua Chu Kang to visit my wife mother's grave. Her mom's grave is located at the old Muslim cemetery and the new Muslim cemetery where her grandmother is buried is far apart!!! Walking 2 kilometers *I might be exaggerating* under the hot sun is one sure way to lose weight!

I keep saying her mom's grave. It should be my mother-in-law's grave right? Well, I really want to meet my father-in-law. If you are wondering why I haven't met him yet, it's a long story and I reckon some things should remain private. Anyhow, it'll be nice for him to meet Drayden. Bottom line is, Drayden is half Malay and should grow up with the Malay heritage. We'll add in the Chinese and Indian bits in due time. Why? Cos he's Singaporean and it'll be ignorant if he doesn't understand and value the wonderful cultures and traditions we have in Singapore.

You might have Eurasian friends and they might have their own culture and traditions. I'm trying to think if I have any but I seriously doubt so. Unless you wanna call drinking beer a tradition. Hur hur hur!

But seriously, I've said it before and I'll say it again. My son is free to choose his own religion when he grows up. I could care less about this BS. If you don't already know, I am a free thinker. For the first time in many years, I'm happy where I'm at. I don't look down on a race or religion and that's something I need and will pass on to my children. We are all equal, born into this world to leave our mark for the generations to come. If you are not down with that, then I don't know what else to say...

Hey! I know I'm going on and on. Let me end this post with pictures my 18 month old son took of himself...

Have a great week ahead!
