“My favorite childhood memory is probably when I was in 5th grade and my dad took me on a road trip for the weekend. I don’t even remember where we were going, but that didn’t matter much to me anyway. I remember laying in the back of his truck listening to him tell me about fight moves as if I really cared. He he grunted as he flexed his arms and clenched his fist while he was driving the car. The truck swerved back and forth on the barren road as he demonstrated his ridiculous Karate moves to me. He laughed hysterically as I screamed in fear of crashing. We talked about all kinds of things and sometimes we just sat comfortably in the silence. Sometimes when he thought I was asleep he would softly sing old Cambodian songs from the 70’s. I remember him making the best soup I had ever tasted in my life. It didn’t have extravagant ingredients. It wasn’t even made in a proper kitchen. All we had was portable stove, a pot, water, and few ingredients. But none of that mattered to me. During this trip I realized how much I loved my dad and I think that’s why this was my favorite memory.”
