he had fought well

Ah kong has finally left us on Sunday around 7am+. Sis gave me a call at 8am on Sunday morning, an hour before we leave for SP to visit ah kong. Little did i realise last 12 Aug would be the final time for me to see ah kong. He was very much alive on that day, although still weak. I started packing after i put down the phone & went over to my in-laws place to ask if there is any pantang larang i should follow since i'm already married. MIL said just be careful and dun talk nonsense during the funeral. After that we shot off to SP to meet my parents. We stopped quite distance from the house & i called mum to inform her i've already arrived. Mum & sis rushed out from the house and got into the car. Hahaha...the water pipe in the house burst and all of them need to go to toilet urgently. So we drove to petrol station and on the way there, mum told us the whole story from when they got the news of ah kong's death to decision on whether to follow Taoist or Buddhist way of funeral. Mum sent me off after i dropped them back to the house.

Went home and did some washing & ironing and tried to sleep but couldn't. Phone ringning non-stop. Sis called to check the time we're leaving at night. Aunt called to inform that i shouldn't be the first to reach the funeral place. So we finally reached SP again at 8pm and stayed until 10pm following the curfew set by mil :p It's for my own good too :)
