I was shocked by some of the statement made on Charlie Hebdo shootings. They opined that such a comic that poked fun at religion will have such a consequences.
My grandpa waived goodbye to us on Christmas day, he passed away in his sleep, which had seemed to be an exhausted day for him.
He is a classic Hakka husband - thrifty living, but love the wife so much that he can forget the rule of being thrifty.
My late granny was a fan of direct sales products - yes, the sales just love her - I remember grandpa was grumpy about the necessity of the products, yet in the end, still gave in.
When my granny wanted to stay in somewhere that is cooling, he immediately bought a unit of condo at genting. How lovely.
Then my late granny had to walk with stick. There was one occasion I was with them in the lift. The moment the lift door open, the first thing my grandpa did was to hold her hand. How sweet.
That was in year 2007, the year I struggled with work. I took the opportunity to relax at Genting during some of the weekends. I'm glad I did, which since to be the last few months I could spend with my late granny.
Needless to say, the departure of my granny was a big blow to him - it was a surprise as it happened within a month from the moment she was hospitalised.
Back to my grandpa, for the past 7 years, he had been unhappy. We tried to bring him to travel around but in recent years, his legs are not as good as before, coupled with serious obesity issue.
About 2 months ago, he had a fall. From there on, his health had worsen, first was the serious water retention issue on his legs, which he was reluctant to see doctor until 3 weeks ago.
He was hospitalised when we were in Bangkok. On 15th Dec, the day we came back from Bangkok, we as a family immediately visited him in the hospital.
That was our last time communicating with him as one family.
In the hospital, it seems he didn't eat for the past 1 (or 2?) days, my sister and I fed him with biscuit and milk. I could still recall the scene when he ate the biscuit hungrily, my heart sank.
I'm glad I managed to do something for both my late grandparents before their departure. Not something great but something I hope I had given some little care.
The rest is history.
The reason I put the song, Real Love, is dedicated to my grandpa.
He won't be alone now as he, after 7 years, is reunited with my late granny in better place.
Rest in peace, grandpa. You will be missed and we love you.
I dreamed that I went to a subway station (similar to the abandoned subway station in spiderman 2 2014) to catch a python.
We went to second floor and there were two guys who were killed by the python.
Lastly a guy managed to chop off the head of python, but one of the deceased guy's wife didn't believe that her husband was dead and want to send to hospital n
Suddenly there was one train approaching in subway station. I stopped the train and managed to get help from the train driver to carry the body into the train.
We delivered the body to city centre then transited to a car. We drove towards the city centre but we were actually driving thru the desert.
I was sitting at the back, with the bodies on my right and head of python on my left.
After we had arrived in city centre, we decided to take a lunch. Went to a local Japanese restaurant. There I met an ex colleague at IBM. He is a Thai hence I greeted him in Thai and I spoke some basic Thai with him
Another friend of mine said we've got a job in that city centre. So we left our stuff in the restaurant to sign the offer letter at that company.
There I saw my Australian ex boss in a Volvo. But she pretended that she didn't see me
After we've got the offer letter it started raining. They were running but I chilled and covered my head with offer letter
When we were back to the restaurant it was closed. We had to wait for it to reopen again.
That's when I woke up
If you are a follower of Susan Miller's astrology forecast, Mercury Retrograde will not be a stranger to you. You may read an article here
Believe it or not, today I experienced the first effect of mercury retrograde - I was taken Putra LRT on my way home - it is a driver-less train - suddenly at Masjid Jamek station, it had emergency break, and it didn't open the door to disembark the passengers, then continued to Pasar Seni station.
The train had to terminate at Pasar Seni station (my destination was KL Sentral) and of course - many were frustrated.
But for me, I was not frustrated - I was amazed at the odds and if those stars retrograde can really affect our lives.
Well, it is just a reference - I am going to Taipei for 4 days tomorrow - Hope everything goes well.
