Dad, you won't go anywhere, will you? You will stay with me.
Kan, wake up. Rise and shine…Kan.
Wake up! Today you have many things to do, don't you? You will be late if you do not wake up now.
Hmm…Mom?
It's such a lovely day, Mom. I don't want to get up.

A beach in front of a hotel
Mom, what is it in there?
Tamarind flavored soup with fried Cha-om and omelet.
Why didn't you cook something else for a change?
He must have been sick of omelet.
It's his favourite. Besides, he doesn't get to eat it everyday.
But dad might like to have European dishes like pizza, spaghetti or sandwich.

Pay your respect, son.
How are you, Yom Noi?
I sometimes notice him sitting absent-mindedly and I feel sad for him.
Don't worry. It's normal for him to miss his father.
Do take care of him. The incident happened just a few months ago, didn't it?
Today is his anniversary.

Where did it go?
Huh…?
Get off me…get off me you bastard.
I won't.
Let's go home, Kan.
Wow, such a crowd.
Kan, you go home first. Then you can come to help me in the afternoon.
Are you sure?
So I'll come back in the afternoon.
That's right.

Kan seemed to be close to Yom Kij. Everyone found them endearing.
That's true. But then he passed away quite unexpectedly, poor Kij.
When the time comes, who can choose to live or not to live, Yom Noi?
Kan, pull harder. The sky's getting dark.
You might get sick again.
It's too late, dad.
Dad, I miss you.

You've arrived. I'm here.
Arghhh!!!
Why did you crash into him like that?
I'm sorry. I didn't mean to.
Talk to your mom. She just called.
Ahh.
I will get on a boat. There are coral, fish which is like an ant and shells which have tiger-like skins.
You said like you have seen it already. You haven't been there yet.
Have you had breakfast? You'll need strength for swimming.
We may encounter a shark with giant teeth.
Really?
Dad said so.
I didn't. I haven't said a word about sharks.
Kan, you came just in time.
Why you are in such a hurry. I told you that you could come in the afternoon.
I am bored.
It's good he comes early. He can help me. Here, affix it above for me.
Be careful, son. Tui, why don't you do it yourself? Why do you have my son do it?
We can finish it more quickly with his help. There are much more things to do with so many customers. Come on, you will get paid later.
Of course. But child labour is illegal if I don't get paid two times.
What! Why are you not like your father?
What a chatterbox!
Step carefully please.
Look, I can see fish. Come quickly.
See you downstairs.

He has so much fun. I rarely see him this happy.
Ha ha ha.
It's good that our son's happy.
Exactly. Although I can't accompany you two, I'm happy enough to know he's happy. He's usually stressed because of his study and homework.
I know. I'm glad I bring him with me. Although he has to be absent from class, this day is worthy of it.
Dad, I'll go downstairs.
He seems to have met a new friend.
Err…Arghhh
I wanna go down there.
Let him enjoy playing. You can watch him from afar.
