Yesterday, it’s my usual chatting session with mama. She called and told me that one of my cousins (not so close) is getting married next month. My first reaction was: “Which date is it?” Mama said it’s on the 11th Nov. I was surprised with my reaction then: “HENG AH, I haven’t come back.”
It’s not that I don’t like her; it’s not that we are not close, it’s not because I need to give angpow but it’s about attending the wedding. I guessed I have the “Attending Wedding Syndrome” Shit, never knew it would be so early for me. Most of my friend got it much older. Nowadays, I’m so reluctant to attend wedding. No dun think I’m very bad alright, let me tell you my reasons, first of all, almost all of my cousins are attached, being the single me, I felt left out most of the time…Yeaps, so if I were to go, I for sure will be sitting with the kids, when I say kids, it’s really kids. Yawnz.. Secondly, the whole
So not because I don’t want to give my blessings to the couple, it’s because I feel so sian at wedding nowadays.
Maybe I should really hire an escort to go wedding with me. Who got good recommendations? Discount? Or who want to volunteer to be my escort got good food lei like Shark’s fin, roast pig..blah blah blah? Haha maybe I should really hire Mr Dexun for long (hopefully his gf won’t kill me). The previous time he accompanied me to attend this wedding of my secondary school friend (Thank you Charlene for lending me your bf for that night haha). Thank God for him, if not I will be bored to death, whole table were all couples lah. Will never forget his effort, I only told him on the day itself, only a few hours earlier and he rushed down from work to accompany me. Sweet… So I bought a very “sweet” present for him too in
Alright enough of weddings, of course if it’s the wedding of my best friends or closed ones, I would surely attend de lah. So those who are getting married don’t worry, flood my mailbox with your invitation card ba. Haha. 放马过来吧!!!
It's all about treating...
It’s the start of a brand new week once again. In my personal schedule the calendar stated that there are still 5 more weeks to go. Yeah counting down the days with my partner in crime Ms Shufen. Everytime time she called me, she will remind me how many more weeks left.
Yesterday a dinner treat made me missed
The previous time (oh ya as I’m typing away, I realized I haven’t post up the entry about it haha) we went to this Cantonese Restaurant Called Ju Fu Yuan It’s located at somewhere very ulu, near a country club. Just the environment alone won our appetite. It’s so pretty and nice. And yes, we dine at one of the VIP room. Good service man.

After the lunch, boss brought us on sight seeing to 太湖.. a very nice relaxing place, whereby there's lots of resort nearby. The place is good for those who wan a peaceful life. How I wish I can have money to buy a house there...
Yesterday mama called me; she told me that grandma was hospitalized in Batam due to a fall. The fall was quite bad as it
fractured or break one of the bones and the doctor are not considering whether to do an operation for her to fix back
the bone together. We all know that a fall could end up quite badly especially for an elderly whatsmore an operation.
Initially mama didn’t want to tell me about the news because she knows for sure I’ll be worried but after me pestering
her a few times she finally did. My grandma and I were quite close and she always dote on me the most. So you can
briefly understand how I’m feeling right now. I’m so worried for her and I even dreamt of her yesterday night. I dreamt
of her telling me how painful her back is and I tried to find the cream for her but I just couldn’t find it and I’m so pissed
with myself in the dream. I really hope that she will be alright, how I wish I could go back now and visit her but I still
had another 1 and a half mths to go. No matter what I will continue to pray for her well-being.
The trip here to
This trip allowed me to cherish kinship, friendship and life more. I missed my family and friends the most. They are the
ones whom stood by me when I need help. When I need to complain about the life here , Shufen and Joewyn would be
there to give me a long-distance call to listen to my rants. My mama and papa would be there to give me advices. When
I faced problems at work and need to clarify something, I would call Selyn and Vivian from my workplace and they
would stop their own work and help me check the things I want. When I’m bored, Joyce and Yuxuan would be there to
cheer me up with their lousy and not funny email. And not to mention my auntie, she would call and asked me about my
well-being and countdown the days with me. My little cousin would asked me in msn, jie jie how are you liao? My dear
Tupperware Leticia cousin would drop by my house and buy stuffs for my parents after her Hongkong trip even though
she stays at Teck Whye. Of course there are many more whom I never mentioned, those who chatted with me in msn
and cheer me up. All these little actions touched me. REALLY. Without you guys, I’m sure my life here would be boring
and dull, and the days would passed by slower.
Thank you is the word to express my thanks.
Of course there’s life too. We all know the traffic in
was a killer. There’s no line dividing the coming and going of the cars and everytime before we crossed the road we
have to look both ways and of course the cars are not afraid of the pedestrian they would come very near you, with a
little time for you to run for your life. The other day, there’s a traffic accident below my workplace and it caused
immediate death for the person. It’s so sudden, one second ago the person was still living and in another split second,
the person is dead. All these traffic accident makes me cherish my life even more. There’s still so much for the person,
he have dreams that is yet to fulfilled yet he won’t be able to do it anymore, there’s no more chance left. I often
wondered why do people commit suicide, or tried to commit suicide, if they were given a chance to witness all these
accident would they still do the same? People are trying hard to survive, yet on the other hand, people are trying to end
their life so easily. This is such a contrast and yes if you’re using suicide to make a person feel guilty for the rest of
his/her life then I think you’re very stupid. If the person won’t feel guilty leaving you, what makes you think that the
person will feel guilty after you’re dead?
Anyway my purpose of this post is to let you, my reader know that kinship, friendship and life don’t come easy. Please
cherish it with all you can. Quoted from my cousin’s fave quote: “Live a day as if there’s no tomorrow”. .
