Win tickets to @PacificTheatre and dinner at @Glowbal_Group’s SOCIETY #HB604FathersDay

pacific theatre logo The second of my celebratory giveaways for Father’s Day is a pair of tickets for the wonderful musical (which I already witnessed and enjoyed) “GodSpell” at Pacific Theatre, paired with a gift certificate towards dinner at one of the restaurants I enjoy the most, SOCIETY (one of the Glowbal Group chain of restaurants, where I had lunch recently with one of my very best friends, AF). Society (Glowbal Group)

Since Pacific Theatre doesn’t do a show on the actual day for Father’s Day, you can treat your Dad AFTER Father’s Day, on Tuesday June 22nd, at 8pm to a showing of GodSpell (winner gets a pair of tickets), and enjoy dinner previously at SOCIETY (the gift certificate is for $50 towards your dinner bill, excluding taxes and tip).

To enter the contest, please write a comment on this entry, indicating what was the most memorable experience you had with your Dad (for example, when you were a child or even in recent years). I will draw a random winner from all entries on Sunday at 12:00noon (Father’s Day). I may even ask my Dad to draw the winner by phone!

The most memorable moments I’ve had with my Dad is when we used to go hiking every Sunday. We’d pack our lunch, fried chicken, sweet corn, dinner rolls, and hike with my mom and younger brother at a near by mountain (this was in Hong Kong before we moved to Canada when I was 10). After lunch, we’d hike down and stop at a cafe for afternoon tea.

Those were the best times because I get to spend every Sunday with my family. Once we moved here, we didn’t get to spend as much time together since dad had to take on odd jobs as his English skill is poor.

Some of the most memorable experiences with my dad are our fishing trips together. My mom would usually stay behind with my two younger sisters so it was always “special daddy and me time”. We would just spend the day talking and joking around, and it didn’t really matter how many fish we caught; it was always about the experience and bonding time.

When I was growing up, my dad used to have “Daddy and Noelle days” about once every year. When I was about 5 years old, we had just moved into my grandparents house because my dad’s severe health problems and related costs meant we were having a really hard time as a family. Despite that, my dad surprised me with a really special Daddy and Noelle day. First, he took me shopping and let me choose two new dresses. It was the first time I ever got to go into the change room of a store all by myself and try on clothes. Then, we went to this huge park. My dad had prepared me a whole BBQ meal, and he made it all nice at picnic table for me. Next, we were going to go and play in a waterpark, BUT a lady was in the park painting kids’ faces, and I asked to do that instead. The lady let my dad paint my face for me. I still remember that he painted a huge rainbow across my forehead and put flowers on my cheeks. I loved it. Once our day was done, we returned home to where my mom and brothers were. I excitedly got to share about all the fun we had. I got to do a little fashion show of my new dresses for them.

I’ll never forget that day.

For me, the most memorable moment that springs to my mind first is at 10 years old when we arose dark and early to go play hockey together at 6 a.m., and we had the ice all to ourselves! I was just learning to play. Hockey and theater became my passions throughout my adolescence.

I remember when my dad watched me graduate from high school. What a memorable experience!

Recently my dad came out to an art show that I only had once piece in, but that didn’t matter to him. First thing he wanted to do was to see my piece and take photos of me with it. He stayed until the very end, and even came back to my place with me and my friends after to continue chatting with us all…

My dad and I were in a small two-seater Cessna, flying over Georgian Bay in Ontario when we ran out of fuel. There was no warning. Just the silence of a dead engine and the sound of the wind as we PLUMMETED TOWARDS THE EARTH.

He started flipping switches, turning dials, and looking intense. I said nothing. I did nothing. I figured, what the hell do I know about flying a plane? Stay out of the pilot’s way when he’s busy, that’s what I know about flying a plane. So that’s what I did.

Suddenly, the engine started again, our fall stopped abruptly as the plane got under control, and we proceeded across the bay without another word said.

After ten or fifteen minutes I tapped my dad on the shoulder and said, “Dad, was that SUPPOSED to happen?”

He just smiled and said, “I’m proud of you.”

My older brother and I didn’t grow up together as he lived with his father. He visited us when I was growing up though. When he was around 8 it was decided he would come live with us. I was ecstatic as I could be at my age. I was going to have a new playmate. He showed up and he was apprehensive. I at the time didn’t understand why (now obviously I do, new town, new family, new place and school, who wouldn’t be?) but my father did. We went out shopping and he was a bit shy so my father picked him up on his shoulders and told him he could get anything he wanted. At the time I thought “NEW TOYS YAY!” Now I am just so proud of my father for trying to make it easier for him. To make him feel wanted and accepted in this new environment. <3

When I was 6, my dad surprised me and my grade school class during lunch hour by dressing up as Santa and handing out goodies to all my classmates. At first, I did not recognize that it was him. When he came over and gave me a treat, he also gave me a hug. I pulled down his beard and started giggling when I recognized him. He had also put a pillow underneath his costume to mimc Santa’s belly.

My dad was very involved in my childhood. He was on parent committees at school, coached soccer, and volunteered for school events. He was always there for me and I still appreciate what he has given up in order to take care of me.
