Brian from the Soul Society group shared an amusing moment after a family dinner, "Jady and I had a good laugh over a memory we had when our daughter Riley was approximately 20 months, just learning to put more words to form longer sentences. Jady and I were just having a catch up chat after a long day at work, while Riley was just going around doing her thing. After a short while, she tried to get our attention, in the middle of our chat but failed. After a brief moment of impatience, she managed to get our attention by declaring at the top of her voice: “MOMMA PRETTY, PAPA FAT!” with a big fat chuckle!"
He continued, "With the kind of industry our company is in (F&B), we are usually out and about till quite late at night, going around the outlets making sure everything is in order. However as much as I can, I plan my time so I can have dinner with Riley most nights and as much as I can on the weekends. I would like to be remembered as a father, who is always there for her, no matter what and someone she can turn to and speak to about anything and everything!"
