Bumpy Ride


My mother-in-law passed-on on Tuesday, 7 Nov 2017, 11:10am at The Changi Hospital. I was just returning to work on the same week under a re-employment contract after my official retirement the week before. Tough week as I continued to teach 5 classes on Wednesday and Thursday in addition to attending to the wake and funeral preparations. My elder son also rushed back from Hong Kong. On Sunday, I sat at the back seat of my car for the very first time as I was always on the front seats. I was able to sketch amidst the bumpy ride on our way to collect the bones and ashes of my mother-in-law at Mandai Columbarium.

Both my parent-in-laws born and die in the same year, 1930 - 2017, aged 87 with 6 great grand children. Blessings!
