This week I received a piece of really sad news.. one of my poly mates' wife was diagonsed with cancer about a month back and passed on early in the week. The news came as a real shock as I would not expect any of my peers to bring me such news.... not at this age! I am not aquainted with my friend's wife but have met up with him on several ocassions after we left poly.... mostly during planned group outings or weddings.
I spent the day feeling really sad and thinking about my own family and how blessed I am. We always take it for granted that people we love will always be there around us. But in reality... we all know that anything can happen to anyone at anytime. This friend's wife must have been my age or younger... she must have fought bravely for the 1 month that she knew about her cancer and even at such a young age... the disease eats you up. It's crazy just thinking about it. I cannot even begin to imagine how my friend must be feeling now... to lose his wife at such a young age. Uggh i feel sad thinking about it again.
Remember to give your loved one a hug today and tell him/her you love him/her ya?
On another note.... im finally going to start brewing up ideas for next month's workshop. Judging from the fact that it takes me several weeks to complete the layouts.... i better start now. :) I finally have a pocket of time to begin work. Wish me luck there eh?
Ohhh and I must recommend this to anyone who loves Nonya/Peranakan food. My mom recommended me this place that deep freezes nonya dishes so you can store in your freezer and reheat when you want to eat. The food is really not bad. Eugene and I had the Itek Tim (Duck with Preserved Vegetables soup) and Chicken Buah Keluak (Chicken Stew with Black nuts) the other night and it was pretty good! Think Im going to have Chicken Pontek (Chicken Stew) for lunch later.. yum! Here is the website you can go to order - http://www.babaking.com.sg. They have FREE delivery when you order 6 packs and above.
Any fans of nonya/peranakan food here?
