A dear family friend passed away yesterday… I’m leaving for Ipoh a couple hours later to attend her memorial ceremony and funeral.

It’s saddening to see long-term family friends leaving, but it’s not too much of a surprise though, anything can happen when people are getting into their 60s.

What really matters is how we live our life when we are still standing. Quite often I see old folks losing special interest, wandering every day’s life just like every other day… I can’t say it’s bad, they probably felt peaceful and blessing to enjoy the easiness… but I sure wish that my life will still be exciting when I’m old.

I think I will be doing a bungee jump when I’m 78, and probably die of heart attack that same moment… it should be cool.

    True alice… NOW is all that matters, and friends are always important. For me family always come first though.

    […] Was in Ipoh to attend a funeral last week. The deceased was a school headmaster, and her funeral was on a working day… so understandably most of the people at the funeral were retirees, retired teachers to be precise. […]
