My dear Grandmother

Taken during Chinese New Year 2013
She is adorable, lovely and a dear grandmother. Someone that is easy to love. Someone that is so important in my life and someone that I love so much. 

A few days ago, on the morning of 8th November 2013, she left us after her final heart operation at Institute Jantung Negara in Kuala Lumpur. At the age of 81 years, even without any approval from all family members, having just the vision that she will be able to at least gain a few more years of life, she insisted to go under the knife. 

Such a brave and strong willed grandmother, no one dared to crush her only hope. 

On the morning of 8th November 2013 at three in the morning, she didn’t wake up and her soul left her body.

That morning, I woke up suddenly to the sound of someone pounding on my door. My brother was shouting “Popo (Grandma) has passed away!” It was the type of message that will immediately send goose-bumps down your spine that seems like it will never go away. 

I couldn’t stop crying.  My heart seems to have broken into millions of pieces.No words were able to describe what I was feeling at that moment. The only thought on my mind was "Why didn't she wake up? Why did she lie to me? She promised me that she will wake up..."

Grandmother or better known as Popo to me... has left us… forever.

Happy New Year 2013

The new year has arrived! After all the hustle and bustle about 2012 being the end of the world, the new year unfolded itself to us in a merry and happy celebration!

 1st of January 2013

I have to say I did believed what the Mayan has predicted and was praying so hard to god not to end the world before my wedding day! Phew~ what a mess the Mayan has made with such bogus inaccurate prediction!

Anyways, the world did not end and we are still here, breathing and very much alive! Which is why we must indeed make 2013 a great if not a marvelous year! 

 Wishes from us!

I just saw a friend's status update on Facebook and it says,
"Today, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one." 

Our life is the blank page and our action is the pen. This is to say that we are fully responsible for a great year ahead. Wishes will be lost if there are no action from our side. Even the lottery winner spends a great deal of his time thinking of what to buy and going out there to pay for the lottery ticket, then spend all his time waiting and looking out for the winning number. You see? Winning the lottery is not a miracle, it's a lot of hardwork! You may say that he's just lucky. Well, luck is just action at the right place and time.

So, start right now with your new year's resolutions and act towards it. A healthy and wealthy life starts with you. 

Happy New Year 2013!

Good bye 2012, Hello 2013!
