Kuala Lumpur: Malaysian badminton legend, Lee Chong Wei, was making sure this eldest son, Kingston, has a birthday to remember!
On Sunday, Lee and his wife, Wong Mew Choo, together with their youngest son Terence celebrated Kingston’s 7th birthday at home as Malaysia has implemented the movement control order (MCO) to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Lee also took to Facebook to share his love and joy when watching Kingston grow up:
“April 12th my elder son’s @kingstonleekc birthday. His seventh birthday. A blink of an eye, seven years passed just like that.
Still remember the day he was born when I saw his head popping out from wife’s tummy, I can never describe that feeling correctly ( he is a c-sec baby ). I cried. That moment I realized how great was Mew Choo carrying him for 10 months. And that moment too I realized that I’m no longer living for myself, I became a father.
And in that same year, his arrival drove my determination to play better. I think I did pretty well. And was even on the brink of winning the world title. My mind and heart only wanted to win it for Kingston. But my body was pushed to it limit after a match I thought was one of the best games Lin Dan and I battled. I couldn’t even lift my leg at 20-17 at rubber game.
Kingston has entered primary school since. Just like me last time, he loves his Nintendo games. He loves Mario and forces his younger brother to use Luigi .
Happy birthday son. Mommy , daddy and everyone loves you .”
