These were taken when we visited him at his house last week before the operation. He could not really talk that time, so he asked for pen and paper to write. After a few trial of 丿，一， 丿， 一, the words were finally formed, "我要吃。。。麦" oh!! i shouted, "he wants to eat oat!!!" "nonono, not oat not oat" mom said. So we observed for another while, there was another charater behind that merely looked like, "面". oooooooohhhh.....he wrote the traditional chinese charater "麵" (noodle) which i never give a thought of it at all, that he could be writing in the traditional form. If there were only me, i would have fetched him a whole big bowl of oat, lol~! he then must feel that the energy spent to write was all wasted or this grand daughter was just iliterate.
Managed to spoon feed him the whole plate of "chee cheong fun" and he liked it =) Good job, ah kong!

The next day, he was transfered out to normal ward although i don't see much improvement. We spent a fair bit of time with him, he could still barely talk something that made us laugh. Things that we could understand was, he wanted to sponsor RM500 for all the family members to go have a feast at some famous shop in Teluk Bahang, lol. He asked for forgiveness from grandma for not spending enough quality time with her during younger age. As he always, always sings me 世上只有妈妈好 everytime i see him, he advised us that we must be filial to mom and be good among siblings. Sometimes, he switched to English channel too, lol. He's just so cute. I love him vy much. A pic of us by his bed side while he was talking to us.
There was once when we were holding him, the heartbeat machine gave out RED alert and loud 'beep beep beep" sound. Nurses came steadily to check on the equipment, while sis and me trying to touch and call him. "still here, still here, the nerves' pumping" sis said. "okokok......" phewww....
The following day, surprisingly he was sent home despite he's still semi-conscious. Guess he was too old for operation. But then, still.....HE IS NOT FULLY CONSCIOUS. how can they just send him back? that is GH, they just don't care. omg, i can't believe that and the fact on how they treat patients there.
Anyway, what we can do now is to pray for him and spend more time w him.
He is my lovely grandpa. :)

It was certainly a loss to our family but on the bright side, dad did not suffer that long, he did not want to bring trouble to us i guess as he was supposed to start kidney dialysis the following week, as we went to learn about dialysis in the hospital that very afternoon when my late father passed on in the evening. i can still feel the warmth of his body when i touched him that time but it became colder and colder. i can see he had what bro last bought him in his mouth, his favourite food - mamak rice.
To make myself feel better, at least i spent the last few days for hours each with him sitting by his bed talking, joking, fetching water, medicine, food, changing cloth, massaging, taking his advices, etc. as i always consult him for business ideas and cookery recipes. One of his last requests to me was to bring him small radio so he can listen when we were not in the hospital with him, so i adjusted and prepared all the channels that he may love on my Sony Bean and had it brought to the hospital by sis and taught him how to operate that little thing on that afternoon. Sis brought it to him, taught him, but he never had the chance to listen to it anymore. He once told me that Sony has very good sound system and was eager to listen to it when i told him i was bringing him my Sony Bean. It was very heartaching when i had to pick that up from the drawer next to his body, together with all his clothing and belongings home.
These were the last 2 things i prepared on the week before that dad had the chance to eat and comment. Yam Puff and Ulam Bee Hoon. Dad hearts my ulam bee hoon alot, he even requested for it the day before he left us, but due to the saltiness, i told him that i would make it again for him when he is discharged. well, he could not wait nomore....dad is a very good chef, he can cook almost everything you can find outside. And he's a strong believer that in order to keep a family relationship intact, cooking is one of the most important criterias. He's always told me this. Yes dad, i will be a good chef one day too for my family.
Well, tomorrow will be dad's birthday (coincidentally the western n lunar date fall on the exact same day this year), but we have to call it "Ming Kee" 冥忌 now. Will go to pray and visit dad tomorrow morning. Remember the last time i said i love you to him, he was very happy.
I Love You Dad! May Amithaba leads you to His Holy Land. You'll always be dearly remembered.

Woke up on a gloomy-nice-to-sleep-in Saturday early morning to this meaningful event EM Mudball Throwing - to save the mother earth, hah!
and this is how beautiful and clean Gurney Drive is *shameful* can't they just clean up the rubbish before the event at least?! don't understand..!!
so there were around 160,000 balls arranged by the drive.
here the powerful mudballs are!
the effort is all done by private sectors & schools children (after i got home from here only realised that there is a picture my sis doing the mudballs in school displaying in her room, she knew it before me! honestly, i heard about EM mudball only on the day before)
here is our Eng ko supporting the event. Go Green Penang! this is followed by the no-plastic day on every Monday. to the uncles behind, sorry hah, u might be capturing the picture of me instead of Eng ko or just his backside =P
close-up of CM (but why are you wearing such a non-environmental friendly P-L-A-S-T-I-C gloves??)
Heal The World was playing behind the event, my fav MJ's song - if you care enough for the living, make a better place, for you and for me.
....and more ppl along the Gurney Drive.
Adios~! i will come back again in 2 months time to see the CHANGES and hopefully WONDERS the mudballs do.

Have you started to believe that you’re just another man on earth struggling to survive through hard times?
Have you begun to admit that you’re a big fat rat running in the race and accept the fact that even if you win the race you’re still a rat?
Has it been a long time since you last truly rest your mind, body and soul, unload all the burden that is built up?
Has it been a long time since you last release your emotion in front of somebody you can really trust and understand you?
Has it been a long time since you last remove the make-up you might have put on on the stage of life?
For once, today, I’ve finally seen some words that reach my heart, I must admit they mean so much and remind me of something I’ve forgotten for so long.
It seems to me that you are a star - an out of reach star from far away sky. I am happy for your wonderful life. You always have nice friends around... It's still in the back of my mind though. One of these days in my life, I am going to reach for the star of my dream, touch her, feel her, talk to her, have a meal with her, and so on. Keep that star shining for me, would you?
I promise I must keep the star shining. :)

Letting go all the worries, all the problems, all the uncertainties, all the gossips, all the pressure, all the commitments, all the responsibilities. Heading to happiness, hopes, opportunities, adventures, freedom, dreams..........perhaps?
Can one do that? to escape from the so-called life pre-defined process and live it different way?

shiiiiiiiittt....when i saw URUSAN SERI PADUKA BAGINDA on that big piece of paper! i would rather not wasting my effort to go collect that damn paper that would cost me more. fine, opened it up, it says my driving speed was 84km/h and the speed limit was 70km/h, yes, at that very road, Lebuhraya Sg Nibong, end of last month. The system in Malaysia is to hide the speed trap camera and happily waiting to catch you on the spot, so they become richer in a way. On the other hand, the system in other countries, is to warn you and let you know up front where the speed traps are located so the people would slow down to be safe. see the difference? the latter serves the purpose more, right?
Good, they are very effective at this thing. They are even more rajin to stand by the road side everyday to earn some pocket $. This is a fact, a Malaysian fact, sadly. Why can't they put a little effort on those Mat Rempit or watever they are calling it now, Samseng Jalanan, which Penang state is at Top 2 in Malaysia? or put some effort on the real crimes? Do you know Malaysia has one of the most number of Government Officials in the WORLD, yet our public services are at this quality? It's at the proportion of 1:23, can you imagine that? 1 serving only 23. it's a shame.
Ok stop the crap, now, i need to pay. got 50% discount if pay online? ok lor....pay....else later police comes and asks me to go to court then susah...............ishhhhhh~!!!

A: I will arrive next Tues nite. Lai eh = meet up? :p (apparently she was trying to figure out what is "lai eh" and asking me. It's in fact just a particle that has little or no meaning, for those who can catch it. But since she asked, so i took the effort to explain...)
