One airline recently offered free seats to various destinations. The year is ending and many people are planning their holidays. Some may desire to go somewhere exotic, some to go to less traveled hideaways, some prefer to escape to the winter wonderlands. The holidays maybe a brief visit or a short week or perhaps more than a month.
For some, the journey has been a happy and memorable trip while some may feel that the holidays has been disappointing or totally unsatisfactory journey. These experiences depends in whose company we have chosen to travel with. Some may find that they have got into the wrong car and chosen the wrong "key" (ie person with no common interest).
At the end of every journey, we have to go home.
We just said goodbye to the Mr. Macgyver in the family - my brother in law met with a car accident on Hari Raya Haji. He went into a coma and passed away on Saturday without regaining consciousness.
He was a down-to-earth person, always willing to help and a true "Mr. Macgyver" in the family- a very handyman - fixing this and that and improvising whenever needed. I am thankful of these very "constructive" lessons that he had taught my son. He was also very active in his diving and fishing trips. He had cared and cooked for my mother-in-law throughout her illness despite himself being a dialysis patient.
Life lessons to be learned from the butterfly. Brief yet colourful!
Church members saying the final goodbye
The ashes will be collected and put in the columbarium at the Nilai Memorial where his parents were- to welcome him.
The flower bloom and wilt and our journey on this earth may be as brief as the flower, so whom do we want to accompany us on the way and to which home we are returning at the end of journey.
May you rest in peace, Sam Yoong.
