Showing up is one of the most meaningful things parents can do

Whether it’s putting aside one’s ego to put food on the table or throwing their kid a lavish birthday celebration, parents have shown that there are all kinds of ways to go the extra mile.

Sometimes, it can even be as simple as just showing up for their children, like what Mr Fadzil and Madam Aini did.

We’re sure this will go down as a beautiful memory for the family, and we wish Ishraq all the best in his studies.
