We should celebrate mama's life

Kong Kum Soon
1939 to 2016

My mother passed away at 10:03 am, 30th April 2016, Sat. Immediately after and holding onto her hand, I still have the same feeling I had when she held my hand when I was young. The warmth, the feeling of security and the confidence that it inspired. It was good. The thought that I am losing my mother suddenly overwhelmed me. I cried like never before. After a good while, my son came up to me and said, "We should celebrate mama's life."
Yes, I should recount the good times that we have had, the nursery rhymes that she taught me to sing, the joy that we shared. She had lived a fruitful life, always bearing the burden of others. Thrifty to the point of misery towards herself but always generous to others. She did not have much, yet all that we have, comes from her.

Best Kueh Lapis in Batam

My First Terrarium

This Fittonia Albivenis plant is a gift from my department: plant, bottle and all. It is supposed to be a terrarium but the original plant rotted away. My wife thought that it was because I wet the leaves too much. (I followed instructions blindly).
The plant in the picture is a replacement. Now, I have no heart to cover the plant anymore so I just treat it like a normal potted plant.
