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.
