My father told me

Dengar lagu Avicii – The Nights dalam kereta tadi.

Lirik dia sangat touching.

Sambil-sambil part verse dia aku ala-ala ubah lirik, asking myself ‘what would my father told me?’.

The lyrics went like

One day my father—he told me,
“Son, don’t let it slip away.”
When I was just a kid I heard him say,

“When you get older
Your wild heart will live for younger days
Think of me if ever you’re afraid.”


And I know what my father would say. “When you get older, your wild heart will live for younger days, think of HIM if ever you’re afraid.”


My father told me a lot of different stuff.

He said, it’s okay not have much money, as long as you can find peace in your heart.

He said, do things with your heart, then people will notice.

Those are some advice I keep close to my heart.


But there’s this one time my father rushed me for shower because we are heading somewhere, and back then I was rather makngut (slow).

‘Mandi 2 minit dah cukup,’ he said.

And that’s also another advice I keep to this very day :P
