I will be away for a few days. Yeah... I'll be skipping exams.
A terrible tragedy befell my family.
My Maternal Grandfather recently passed away after a battle with illness.
I'll be returning to Ipoh tomorrow for the ceremony.
This only proves how frail and fragile life can be... Not that we didn't expect this day. No, we've long accepted that days like this will happen, to each and everyone of us. Regardless of age, as long as you're living, there will be a day where you finally leave. It's the cruel fact of life.
It's just that.... a week ago, I was still in Ipoh, and he was still quite alright, able to converse with the family and all, so this event really caught me by shock.
I'm just glad that my mother is alright, having said
"I'm happy, because my father looked peaceful."
when I confronted her.
We should treasure our loved ones, especially the elder ones, as the day will bound to come.
Until then, we shall cherish every single moment.
