The Eulogy

SAD NEWS....

I was in Johor when I received news that my uncle has passed on.... It was a Monday when my cousin messaged to inform us... My flight to Ipoh was due on Wednesday, just a few days ago.  I was very saddened by his demise, this uncle is close to my family.  I have mixed thoughts, am I saddened or do I feel a kind of relieved for him?  I am sure the family felt the same way as I do.... Saddened by his loss and at the same time, we feel comforted that he is now with our Good Lord, no more suffering, no more pain as he had been for more than six months.

My uncle was a very jovial guy, he loved to joke whether we are adults or kids and many times we were taken with his "acting"... The most recent one was a couple of months ago.... My sister and I visited him one afternoon and we were having a conversation with my auntie as well.  In the midst of our conversation, my sister gave some USD notes to my auntie.  My uncle who was sitting nearby then asked to see one of the notes, saying he never seen USD note before.  My auntie passed one piece of $100 to him unknowingly and that was the end of that.  Eventually, $100 note was "conveniently" kept in my uncle's pocket after that... At that moment, we laughed over his "trickery" done upon his wife....

My uncle loved his wife very dearly, very unselfishly in his own way.  The first time I took my auntie to US for three months, he told us to enjoy ourselves, if three months is not enough, stay six months.  That was what he said, he could take care of himself and his grandkids who were staying together with him.  And then the second time we went to US, he still encouraged my auntie to go for the trip, that was in May last year, he knew my auntie loves to travel and he gave his blessings.  However we cut short our two months stay, we flew back to Malaysia after one month for he fell down one day and could not walk properly.  Ever since then, his health failed and he was taken good care by my auntie till our Lord took him home last Monday...

During the eulogy, I wanted to go out but I did not have that moment.  I was moved to tears by the grandchildren's love for their grandfather and during the eulogy, they cried, they thanked him, they apologize, their regrets.... all for the love for their grandfather. They are all schooling kids and their grandfather has an impact on their lives...They really miss him very much!

We adults have learn something from these kids on that night...

Below is an eulogy by Christopher Au...

My father has lead a simple life , where usually after work, or even after he
retired, he will enjoy a good meal cooked by my mother and catch up on the
Hong Kong dramas. TV was his favourite pastime and he always enjoyed a good
laugh from comedies. He especially love anything related to China , be it politics ,
documentaries and any variety programs from China.
He loves kids and the kids love him. I remember when my daughter was a baby
and came back for cny, she refuse anyone to carry her except him. That shows
that my dad is like a magnet to the kids. I remember during his younger days, he
always likes to play with the kids in our neighbourhood and even watch cartoons
on TV and had a good laugh. His grandsons and granddaughters always love to
cling to him and very close to him.
My dad was also very playful and he likes to show his fun side by playing tricks on
us or friends. Sometimes you may kena his tricks without knowing it till my mum
tell them they got cheated. He's one fun loving man who likes to jokes and he's
also loves to talk.
He's always helpful to relatives and friends and whenever there are occasions,
whether good or bad, they always come to him. And , he will go all out to help
them.
He's a loving and fun dad and seldom scold us but he also ensure that we do not
go on the wrong path. He is very contented as long all of us try our best in our
studies and whatever we do. He also taught us a lot of good values which are
beneficial in our adult life.
We will always cherish him in our memories. 
Thank you.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, 
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
 John 3:16
RIP, Uncle

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
