Happy Birthday my dear boy!
Now that you’re a teenager,
Hopefully you’ll still listen to me.
Not because I’m always right, (which your mom refuses to believe)
But because I have been wrong a lot of times.
I can give you a list of tips or advises
now that you are in your teenage years.
But instead, I’ll just tell you to believe in yourself.
There will be a lot of confusing moments.
You are one of the most kind people I have ever known.
Do not trust anybody. And I mean any one.
Not even your close friends, or family.
Always clean up your mess. Literally and figuratively.
I can never fully know all the things you’re going to be going thru,
but I can have a pretty good idea and I can definitely understand.
You can always come to me or your Mom.
We are so proud of you.
I wish your Grandma Linda could have seen
how you grew up to be a handsome and kind young man.
I love you very much, Buddy.
I know it’s really late for this
but I wanted to post this before the month ends. Even though I’m still not happy with it.
This is the first Mother’s day since my Mom passed away.
To be honest, I didn’t know what to do.
I am so used to talking to her on this day.
I am proud to have a good relationship with her.
I made this song cover a week before Mother’s day, but I just couldn’t finish it.
Finally decided to get on with it and be done.
I made this tribute for her,
and for those who really cared for her.
She may not be the perfect mother, but she is my Mom.
And she is perfect to me.
As I leave Ottawa, I would like to thank everyone
who came to my Mother’s funeral.
Our family and friends who gave their loving support.
Those who have shared lasting memories
and those who have unselfishly cared
and loved my Mom all throughout these years.
Thank you very much, from the bottom of my heart.
Someday, Cancer will be no more.
A couple of hours ago,
My Mother lost her fight with Cancer.
I appreciate all those who called and messaged me.
I really appreciate it.
From the bottom of my heart.
So, while I’m here at the airport,
waiting for my delayed flight,
let me share with you two things for now.
Music is the only thing that’s keeping me
from screaming my guts out.
Cancer is a fucking bitch and it needs to be destroyed.
I still can’t understand what I am feeling right now.
I’m so angry but I’m also in comfort
that she’s not hurting anymore.
Thanks again to my friends who have been very supportive to my Mom and our family.
It means more to me than I can express.

I didn’t want to do a video post
because my face is not for viewing.
But then I realized, this is “The Internet.”
There are way worse videos than mine.
I am only a small part in this ocean of shame.
I just wanted to start fresh for the new year
and make the most out of this website.
It used to be my main social media tool.
Last year was really messed up and I really want to leave it behind.
Here’s to looking forward,
never looking back,
playing your heart out
and listening to more music.
Happy 2015, everyone!
