The One Ring...






















... is part of short stories that I have to write for my current course homework(more on this in another post). So I'm gonna share it with you guys in this post. Its basically about the birth of my daughter.


18.12.2001 - It was just a week before Christmas and I’ll always remember this date for two reasons. It was the world premier date for my all time favorite movie Lord Of The Rings and more importantly the birth of Hannah Nichelle Dinoza. It was on this day that I rushed to the operation theater to watch the birth of my daughter. The moment was during an afternoon and I lacked sleep despite staying overnight at the specialist center to accompany my wife after her water broke. She was sent to the operation theater earlier on since she had issues giving birth naturally. My heart was pumping full of excitement of having my first very own child but also a test of nerves and praying to god hard for the safety of my daughter and wife that they’ll pull through this operation unharmed. I reached the outside of the operation theater and watched the operation in progress through the glass window with my mother in law by my side. As much as I wish they were there too, my own parents couldn’t make it. This was it… The doctor signaled to the rest of the medical staff who was in the operation theater to prepare as he is going pull my daughter out of my wife’s stomach. Using a suction tool, the doctor made his count and pulled my daughter out almost instantly. POP!!! Just like that my daughter was out. I can’t help feeling shocked for a while and wondered “Is that how they really do it??? Isn’t it suppose to be a slow and gentle process?”. But of course I found out later it is a proper and safe process. Shocked feeling aside, I breath a huge sigh of relief as the doctor signaled to me that my daughter and wife are both fine. Later on with my wife by my side on her bed, I held my daughter for the first time. It was the most wonderful feeling to have her in this world. I dreamt about this for so long and to have her in my arms was just simply complete bliss. I know then and before, she will be the love of my life. That pushed me in so many ways to be a better person as I watched her grow up. I was determined more than ever to give her my best love and care. I know that I have to push myself to be better and better because by being a better person, I will have more in me to ensure my daughter have a better life. So on this day, I might have missed the premier of Lord Of The Rings but it was totally worth it because Hannah was ‘The One Ring’ to me. My precious. The experience was life changing. I love you Hannah with all my heart. Daddy is going to make sure you’ll have a good life.


Of course, life for me didn't turn out as good as i hoped after the birth of Hannah. My wife and I divorced 3 years ago and a lot of good and bad has happened since. But Hannah grew up wonderfully with the love from both my ex-wife's and my very own friends and family. My ex-wife herself is happy now with her new found man and if all goes well, Hannah will have her first brother or sister this year. ;-) As for me, i never stopped trying to be a better person. This year alone I find myself spending more quality time with my daughter, which is part of my new year resolution. Most likely I'll be taking her this week to the funfair that is happening in town. Anyone been there yet?

Currently, Hannah loves the song Wow by Kylie Minogue and watches the video below when she gets the chance. Don't ask why because she is even really into watching Australia's Top Model.

I've been to the funfair. Be prepared to spend lots of money. The rides are expensive. I took my whole family up on the Ferris Wheel. I got a little freaked out by the height but my kids didn't seem to mind it.
