It's really sad how you were not even allowed to acknowledge him or any of daddy's relatives. That was how the alienation started a long time ago, beginning with uncle Alex, followed by ah gong (granpa), po po (granny), gu gu (my sister), and finally daddy.
I have witnessed with my own eyes the kind of turmoil you had been put through even as a toddler. Whenever there was an "upcoming storm" in our house, daddy would not want to affect you further by getting into an argument, hence I had always endured so as to keep peace in the house..... and I never regret doing it for you.
