I didn't like my father. He was poor and not successful, despite working harder than all my friends'
fathers. I didn't think he was very smart.
Hey, it's not for you.
I've never seen him as an inspiration.
We are late for school.
Here's your pocket money. Here's a bit of extra. Time to pay your taxes.
From you. From me.
Why are we not rich?
Who says we are not rich? Being rich is not about how much you have, but how much you give.
Somehow when you give, you'll be happier.
I wasn't happy. I didn't want to be poor like my father when I grew up. I knew I wanted to be more
successful than my father.
Call me when you need more money.
Are you coming back for reunion dinner this year?
No, I'm not coming home this year. Yeah, a new job here. Maybe after New Year, we'll see. Yeah, I'm
really busy. Okay, bye.
Thank you for coming Mr. Lim.
I found these letters saying I've been donating money to the Community Chest. There must be a
mistake.
I'll explain later. There's someone who'd like to meet you. Come with me.
Thank you for coming Mr. Lim. Your father has told us a lot about you. Your father, he always made
us forget about our problems. He reminded us of our dreams and hopes. But the kids here, they all
miss him. And he's the only one who can bring a smile on their faces. And I remember there's this
boy, he was really depressed, and he didn't go to school. Basically he'd given up on life. But your
father, he read to this by regularly. This boy has now grown up to be a really useful person.
Your father could have retired comfortably, but he chose to continue working so he could help even
more people. He was a selfless man. It's just that... It's just that he didn't tell anyone about his
sickness.
Mr. Lim, I've been trying to reach you. This is for you, in recognition of your donations.
It has my name, buy I didn't donate.
It's your dad. He didn't want you to know.
This from you. This from me.
On my father's birthday, I'll celebrate his life as she would have wanted it.
I could almost hear him say, "being rich is not about how much you have, but about how much you
can give."
Pa.
