One of the things that I’m thankful for this year is the opportunity to share some of my thoughts to my dad. I didn’t grow up talking that much to him. As a matter of fact, I grew up hating him. Well, not all the time. We just didn’t have that chemistry as most fathers and daughters have. It’s funny talking about chemistry when it should be an instant thing, it should come natural as he is a family, my father. I dunno.
So anyway, yeah… Maybe I didn’t realized how much he sacrificed for us, for me. Or maybe so, I wasn’t that sensitive enough to realize those things. Somehow, I could say that maturity contributed much to this realization. And I’m thankful that even during those days of chaos, he still supported and loved me. As much as I have declared to the whole world and affirmed to myself again and again that I don’t love him, I now do. I now see how he raised me and siblings with the best of his ability. He supported us throughout my college years. He became a father and a mother at the same time. It wasn’t easy for all of us. There were times that I would not go home because I hated him so much and that I can’t stomach seeing him. I would call rarely and send messages to him once a week or so. Those are some of the things that I regretted. I wasn’t considerate enough and so I didn’t exert an effort to know him better.
I’m 22 and I still (sometimes) act childish. I’m not proud of it. But I know that every realization is an opportunity to learn and grow. So why did I write a blog post regarding my father? I guess to honor him…for the great things that he did just so we can have a bright future ahead of us. And I’m proud to say that I’m not giving him a hard time for the past 3 months (except borrowing money). :P
I truly believe that everything will fall into their proper places. He is a good parent. Not perfect but a father that I can be proud of.

Press Release: Firmoo Optical Company Limited – Thu, Apr 5, 2012 9:00 AM EDT
NEW YORK, April 5, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- A month ago, CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) published a piece of news about purchasing eyeglasses online; a month later, this news has already been commented on by thousands of people. With the rise of purchasing eyeglasses online, more and moreeyeglass wearers have begun to focus their attention on it. However, with regard to buying eyewear online, some support it while others still have doubts about it. What has turned numerous eyeglass wearers from traditional brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores to online ones? Firmoo's slogan tells you everything: Vision and Fashion the Frugal Way.
Most eyeglasses wearers have purchased eyeglasses at traditional eyeglass stores. Nevertheless, due to the limited styles and unaffordable prices, consumers have had to regard eyeglasses as a medical tool used to correct vision instead of a fashion accessory. But now, with the emergence of online eyeglass shopping, we can get fashionable eyeglasses at reasonable prices. Among the many online eyeglass stores, Firmoo, which combines fashion and economy, is undoubtedly the most outstanding one.
As we all know, we usually have to spend hundreds of dollars on a pair of glasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Yet, you can get the same pair of glasses from online eyeglass stores at a fraction of the price. For this reason, buying glasses online is, so to speak, quite an economical way to get eyeglasses. Among the numerous online optical stores, Firmoo is the most economic one. Customers can usually get their beloved glasses at a price that is up to 90% lower than that in brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores. Furthermore, new customers can even get their first pair for FREE there. Some people may doubt the quality, safety, durability, etc. of eyeglasses purchased online, but there is no need to worry when purchasing from Firmoo. Firstly, all glasses provided by Firmoo are carefully manufactured by skilled workers and are strictly inspected by professional opticians before shipment, thus ensuring the quality and safety of glasses; secondly, Firmoo has developed a try-on tool for customers to try their beloved eyeglasses on so as to see how they look on them; thirdly, Firmoo has a customer service team that has always been committed to offering their valued customers the best service; lastly, all glasses available at Firmoo are provided by their affiliated factory, which is why they can offer eyeglasses at such a low price.
"We have dozens of affiliated eyeglasses factories which enable us to provide our customers with the most affordable eyeglasses around because there are no middlemen in between. Meanwhile, we have devoted ourselves to providing our valued customers with fashionable and aesthetic eyeglasses," said Patrick Li, Firmoo's CEO.
Compared with purchasing eyeglasses at brick-and-mortar eyeglass stores, purchasing eyeglasses online is not only more economical but also enables customers to select from more fashion elements. This is due to Firmoo meticulously picking several hundred classic styles from thousands of eyeglass models.
Firmoo CEO Patrick Li also added, "Our team has selected hundreds of classical and fashionable styles in order to save time for our customers when they are picking eyeglasses."
