“In my case, I have discovered that the money we give women will never be enough for them to prepare us delicious meals we all yearn for,” he said.
Garakara said he has also managed to discover some of the hidden traits of his children.
“Children are very adventurous and I have only discovered some of the trails I didn’t know about them since I welcomed them to this world.
“As parents, we need to be close to our children as they need us to assist them a lot, especially during these trying times,” he said.
