Abstract:
Presented here is a monologue expressing an individual`s love and respect for his father. The protagonist also expresses his fear of disappointing his father, only to realise, after his father`s death, that he was the pride of his father`s heart. By likening his father to Teochew porridge, the protagonist does not just illustrate his father`s character and heritage but also adds a local flavour to the text.
