The birthday of a great photographer... my dad

Today is the birthday of my beloved dad. Just skyped and wished him a happy birthday an hour ago.

Looking through my old albums, I couldn't thank dad enough for taking so many photos of me when I was young.

Mom's sister married dad's brother and in total there're 7 kids in the family... we're closed knitted and grew up in a shop house. I was mom and dad's first born, but there're 3 cousins who're older than me. So, I'm no. 4 in the family.

Mom said I was a happy baby. How could I not be happy when I have such a happy childhood?

A cool baby...

I love this photo... as if I can hear the laughter of 2 happy girls (me & my cousin).
"Ha ha ha... don't be mean I'm gonna own a public listed company one day?! ha ha ha... you must be joking..."

Another addition to our family when my younger cousin was born. Who'd expect that cry baby would one day have a very good career (and a love for LV bags)?

A photo taken in the shop (dad & uncle owned 2 shops together...selling textile & cloth).
So, we're the "Material Girl"!

That's not a doll! That's my adorable brother!

I'm truly blessed to have such a wonderful (& handsome) dad.

Happy Birthday, Dad.
Thanks for those sweet childhood memories.
I love you.

The second last photo somehow resembles how you look when you grow up - a very pretty and happy Yuin Ting! It was truly blessed to have wonderful parents!

Hi Joyful.Mum, thanks for your compliment. Smile is girl's best cosmetic, ha ha.
I can see you come from a close knitted family too. We're lucky to have wonderful parents.
