How's everything? Things have not been the same since you left one year ago. I remember the moment I saw you resting in peace, I couldn't control my emotions. Relieved to know you're finally free, painful to know that I will not be seeing you anytime soon.
When I visited gege in UK this June, during a train ride back to Manchester from London, gege and I had the same thought that you and mama were with us on the train. I imagined the both of you, sitting on top of the train, watching the world go by...
I'll always remember the way you dress. Always smartly dressed. A crocodile collared shirt, black slacks, belt and with a key chain hung to your belt. Not forgetting the part where you'll always pick your teeth with a toothpick. You know what? I remember the time when we were in the van, on a journey to let your ashes off to the sea, suddenly I noticed there is a toothpick stuck on the headrest on the seat in front of me. I paused for while. That moment froze for a while. Well, I don't know if its put there by someone else, but I just had a feeling it was you.
Did you know? I shot a total of 58-photoshoots this year! It's really exhausting... but every time I photograph, I remember you and immediately, my energy and game face will be back on track. Photography is my way of honoring you.
I can never thank you and mama enough for being the greatest grandparents. I thank God for the both of you.
Have fun traveling around the world and universe with mama!
