"No hug.. No huggggss please." I could feel she was reluctant to receive my hug, but I didn't care! I pulled her to me as close as I could. Yeaaa.. I got that hug :)
Elvie's brother Stuart passed away suddenly last week, four days after celebrating his 12th birthday. We couldn't hold our tears when Elvie gave details on little Stuart's funeral. I cannot start to imagine Elvie's parents states, as Stuart was their baby, the youngest of five siblings. When we heard the news last Wednesday, I couldn't get myself to call Elvie. I only texted her to offer my words of condolences. If I called, I knew we would only cry cry cry and cry, gag, cry, sobbed, cry... That was why she didn't want to be hugged, she's shedded enough tears already.

It was a sad week last week... Hectic with workload, but it was nothing compare to have to suffer losing your loved ones. Few days after Elvie's loss, my eldest daughter Ayu received a call on Saturday afternoon from one of her closest friends informing her that their close friend K.K. has lost her beloved mother. *Al-Fatihah*
I first met K.K. sweet mom when our daughters registered for their first semester at Uitm Kota Semarahan in June 2010. The four of us clicked instantly!

The chain of sad news started with the demise of our neighbor Haji Hussein, who passed away while he was in the holy land Mecca while performing Umrah two weeks ago. That was a real shock... I've known him for over 20 years and Hjh Mariam (his wife) is one of the sweetest people I know. It's gonna be a bit weird not hearing his 4wheel drive pull up his driveway like it used to.
My heart goes out to the families... May their soul rest in peace.
They say live as if you were to die tomorrow. If you knew you only have a day to live, what would you do? -.-
I think, most of us would choose to spend more time with our loved ones, to say what we've been meaning to say, to apologize for whatever hurt we've caused and, to honor the promise we're supposed to keep.
Almost too often after learning the passing of someone close, we would first try to dig through inside our memory box by pausing a second, and think hard when where we last met. What did we say to each other? What were the last words, what did we talk about?? Gosh... He was so much alive then, but he's gone now -_____-
Always people took for granted how bad they treat others. Worse when it involved family members. We all break promises. But don't make up stupid silly lies... please don't. When we DO have to break a promise, tell the truth why. It's okay if you have other more important plans, just tell laa... Don't lie. It's so ugly when the person you lie to finds out the truth. Ouuuchhh... x_x
You do not want to regret it later what you shouldn't have done, what you should have said... Be nice to your family & darling friends. It may be the last time you'll see them alive.
