I thought of you last night yeye.
I remember how when you drink your water, you’ll sip it really loud and let out an ‘ahhhh’ after. But not before smacking your lips together. Makes me wonder, why is your water so tasty but mine just tastes like, water.
I remember when you came to SG to live with us for a bit when we were still in Yishun. You’ll always blast your music loud for us in the second floor to hear.
Que sera sera, whatever will be will be. This is your favourite song. I remember you singing this song for as long as I can remember, and as long as you can remember.
I remember you keeping tons of DVDs for us to take a look every time we visit KL. You’ll bring out your boxes for us to choose and always tell us to bring a few home. But we eventually left it with you cause, pirated.
I remember you having 2 sets of spectacles. Always saying, ‘1 is for reading. The other is to look far. I’m getting old so must have 2 specs.’
I remember whenever we visit, when you were getting older. You’ll remember us by saying ‘Number 1! Number 2! Number 3!’ before giving us a huge grin and a envelope us with a bear hug.
I remember so much more. Maybe it’s cause mama is in SG for this period.
Then I struggled to remember the last time we visited - Christmas 2016. I couldn’t remember what and where we went.
As I scrolled through my camera roll to find what happened during Christmas 2016. It started rushing back.
You came over to our service apartment. We had lunch, dinner, walked around Pavillion. The usual. We wanted you & mama to stay with us for the night, but you both refused cause it was a different environment.
And that, was the last time I saw you yeye.
If I knew, I would have hugged you a lil tighter. Talked to you a little more. Spent time with you a little more. If only I knew....
I never ever want to forget you yeye. I’m so afraid I’ll forget how it was like loving and having a grandfather. I wished for future children to know you.
A man who was so stern and emotionless at times, yet showing the kindest of hearts when it came to family. ❤️
You’ll always be in my heart yeye. Que sera sera, whatever will be will be.
