We can say å…æœˆåå…è™Ÿæ˜¯çˆ¶è¦ªç¯€ ( June 16th is Father's Day ).
On that day, you should call him and say "è€è±†ä½ å¥½ï¼"
..ä½ å¥½ï¼ means so and so, how are you?
è€è±† or è€ç«‡ is an informal way to call daddy.
The Cantonese word çˆ¹åœ° is actually a borrowed word from English â€œDaddy"
We often call our elderly daddy è€çˆ¹ (Old Dad). Similar to Mandarin.
We should also say " è€ç«‡æˆ‘å¥½æŽ›ä½ä½ å•Š ï¼â€ ( = Daddy, how I miss you! ) if you call home from far away. Take good care of your father and send him more love if you still can. I cannot any more as he passed away many years ago. There's a Chinese saying from a famous peom: åæ¬²é¤Šè€Œè¦ªä¸å¾… ( When the son wants to support the parents who have passed away. ) A pretty close translation of the sentences in that Chinese poem can be found at Dict.cn: æ ‘æ¬²é™è€Œé£Žä¸æ¢ï¼Œåæ¬²å…»è€Œäº²ä¸å¾….
