The third Sunday of June is Father’s Day in many countries around the world. In Australia, it’s on the first Sunday of September.
To celebrate, here is a roundup of Cantonese resources. Happy Father’s Day!

5. Father’s Day themed cartoons
So far I could only find one that is child friendly (update: this video is blocked in some countries). There is a 麥兜 McDull video discussing his father which is quite humorous, but I would not recommend that episode for young kids. There is also 蠟筆小新 Crayon Shin-Chan, also may not be suitable for young kids.

Sharing yet another a song by Beyond, my favorite band. This time about a rebellious son who learns to appreciate his dad when he is older. Sorry that the resolution is not that clear, it was the only one I could find on YouTube. Seems 真的愛你 about Mother’s Love is a more famous song.
