31 December 2010, 2:28PM: I've actually written a blog post, and scheduled it to publish at around 5PM today. However, an unexpected event happened yesterday night. At 10PM+, my dear grandpa, my ah gong has passed away at home. The moment I saw him lying on bed, lifeless, I cried... I cried because I miss him, I cried because I love him, I cried because he is free again. Ah gong has suffered as a stroke patient for more than 5 years. I know it has been very difficult for him-not being able to walk, not being to talk properly, not being to express himself freely... what more developing multiple cancer tumors approaching the end of his life. I am glad that he is reunited with grandma. I'm glad they are both now free from worldly worries and sadness. Words can't express how much I love them.
This was my scheduled blog post to end 2010....
2010 is the year of new experiences, loss and discovery.
Some notable events that happened within this 12-months:
Resigned from my full time job at Sapura. In my two-years of service there, I've learnt alot in terms of business & management. I also grew more confident and gain full financial independence.
Established Very Imaginative People Enterprise.
Travelled to China for the very first time. I went to Guangzhou with my parents for a business visit. Didn't like the weather, traffic and lifestyle... but I definitely enjoyed seeing new things with my parents.
Travelled to Indonesia for the very first time. What an experience it was! I had to arrange transportation, lodging and all in less than 8-hours. Went there to conduct workshops for Sinarmas World Academy and Jakarta World Academy teachers. The entire trip was physically and mentally draining. But once I pulled it through, I couldn't be happier with the entire experience.
Speaking gigs at various events such as Mac + iPod Discovery Week at Midvalley, Mac + iPod Discovery Week at 1Utama, Masterskill University etc...
My very first holiday with Boonyee (after 4-years). I still have very fond memories of the trip-the empty beach, great weather, soaking in the sea, cycling by the beach, long naps...
Traveled to Europe for the very first time and experienced 2 degree Celsius weather! This is definitely beyond my wildest dream... I never thought I could travel to Europe; I never though I would sit next to Boonyee in a plane, what more setting foot on a foreign land together. Unbelievable... I always revisit the memories in my head. It's such a precious memory.
Being in and out of the hospital regularly, and caring for my grandparents intensively.
Then, eventually losing my grandmother.
2010 passed by in a blink of an eye. It has been a great journey... May 2011 be greater and better!
