Sorry, no political story for the day. I want to rest and relax a bit this Sunday , ok?
Well, it's the tail end of winter...start of spring I think. A bit cold but manageable. About 10 to 20 degree Celsius. Maybe by next week, it will be just nice to visit Taiwan.
It's 3.56am here as I'm writing this.
Woken up just now from a dream. Not a good one. I dreamt that my Chinaman left me. Very sad. Luckily it was just a dream....I hope....
Never mind, those were all just my nonsense.
Got a message from my sister in Johor yesterday, that an uncle passed away. The funeral is going to be this morning. I could only recite the Alfatihah for him from here. Well, actually he was the husband of one of my aunts, who is the younger step-sister of my late father.
Just last week, another of my aunts passed away from various complications.
Actually she was not my real aunt yet my siblings and myself refer to her as our aunt. She was the adopted daughter of my late grandma.
My aunt was given-up for adoption by her biological parents when she was a baby. No one except my grandma really know who were our aunt's parents. All that we know about them was that they were a very poor Chinese couple.
My aunt never talked about it...at least not in our presence. She had a happy childhood despite growing up in an almost equally poor adopted family.
According to my late mother, my aunt was considered a beauty when she was young and guys were falling over each other for her hand.
Well, I was puzzled when my mom told me about it as till now my image of her was that of a very jovial Chinese looking lady (well, she was indeed a Chinese lady) with maybe a slight weight problem.
I actually only believe what my mom told me after considering that my aunt's many daughters were themselves beauties.
Oh btw , my aunt married a cousin of my father, but they never tried to be mengada-ngada and reclassify their children as Anak Bangsa Malaysia despite her being Chinese and her husband a Malay.
All I could do for my aunt, was also to recite the Alfatihah for her.
