Never knew that four days can pass by so fast like a bullet train in Japan.
After the cremation on mon,
everyone remains strong in the outside, but i know that they are soft on th inside...
They felt upset & unforgettable memories will be in our hearts...

Want to know what we did for the past four days (last friday [4/6] to monday [7/6])???!!!
its gonna be wordy...
But i can summarise for you (: (:

Thursday night,,,
got to know the 'big&sudden' news from my auntie who called back to grandma's house.
After the call,
everyone switched off the television & remain slient...
As for me,
i joke around saying, "how come all the newspaper have the 死 (means die in chinese) word ???"
After everyone came back from the hospi (疗养院),
everyone start to 'decorate' the house with red pieces of papers...
Not suppose to switch on the television, look into the mirror, bath or even switch on the radio ??? ...
While that's all we cant do for the next four days.

Wake up @ 8plus to get ready for the ceremony...
'the arrival of grandfather (ahgong)'
Most of us cant stop our tears from flowing down, including me.
After that, everyone is back to normal
& the adults gave us instructions in what to do.
But me & qin went off to school as we have lessons.
After we came back, its time for some work.

As planned,
from friday afternoon to sunday morning/saturday night,
there will be a lot of visitors comin over to give ahgong their respect&prayers.
There are seriously a lot expecially on saturday...
There are NP, NTU colleagues, bosses & ex-boss, relatives, friends, neighours & more.
So its very busy...

But the saddest part is sunday night & monday morning.
Sunday night is when we have to 'bring' ahgong to the 'bridge',
& there's a distance to walk before reaching.
After that,
is to 'give' ahgong all his assets.
& during the process, we have to use a bamboo stick to hit the floor, which is actually the road,
to call for ahgong to receive it, to prevent 'others' to snatch away from him.

Monday morning, wake up @ 8am.
Getting ready to go to school,
i have to attend DE (digital electronic) test.
To ahgong, he feels that test & exam are the most important things to do.
So i've listened & remember his words, thus i went over to school to take my test
& miss the early prayers for ahgong.
But i know ahgong will understand my planning.
After my test, which i finished @ 11.05,
i rushed out to hail a cab.
& ask the driver to use the new Bartely expressway, which is the fastest way to reach back home.
& i cant believe it that the driver actually took 10mins to reach
when previously i remember it took me half an hour...
Unexpectedly, but still, thanks uncle (:

Ahgong is sent over to Mundai Cremation.
That place was the worst part of the day.
Everyone just let out their emotions & cried out, without controlling
but actually, we're not supposed to.
After which, we went back for lunch
&the entire 'event' had come to an end.

Yesterday was the seventh day since ahgong left.
He has suffered for approximate 3&1/2 months.
We know that he was taking the pain himself without showing any sign at all.
But everyone, in the family, were suffering together with him.


even though you're not here with us anymore

but still your presence will still remain in the family.

i know that its hard for you during those recoverin days

but i know you've tried your very best to stay healthy & happy,

in front of everyone.

Very happy to see you resting happily after long periods of pain& treatement.

But i can assure you that i will stay healthy & concentrate on my studies.
