“I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren’t trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom”
– Umberto Eco, Foucault’s Pendulum
Fathers have a great impact on our lives, and through the little, everyday things that they do for us, we see glimpses of their affection and love. They are our role models, heroes, and so much more. In celebration of Fathers’ Day, we’ve found some of the most heartwarming Instagram pictures of our very own Singaporean dads: be warned, overwhelming sweetness and affection ahead.
A proud Dad with the newest member of the family.
When he’s not busy sorting his own things out, he’s got your back.
From shopping malls to outdoor activities, dads will spare no expense at letting their kids experience new things.
Even if it means getting themselves — and their cameras — soaked at a waterfall.
Or being silly at the void deck of your home.
Dads will always be our very own superheroes.
Even if they’re not dressed like one.
Sometimes the most comforting thing to hear is Dad’s voice.
Sometimes maybe even a little too comforting.
It might get a bit confusing when Dad has a twin.
But we can’t complain when our Dads have to deal with so many of us.
At the end of the day, nothing beats spending time with Dad.
Even if we were too young to remember.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there!
