She is not an acquaintance of mine. I got to know her through Carol, whom introduced that I read Shin's blog http://shinscancerblog.blogspot.com/. She's a proud mother of 2 and fought a long and rough battle with cancer - the number 1 killer - and passed on peacefully last week. Watched her documentary clips, her memorial clips, and I have nothing but respect for this lady. She adopted a positive attitude and lived in good spirits throughout, until the last hours of her life. There was a touching scene when she walked her husband through the collection of knick knacks for her 2 lovely kids, Josie and Toby... that brought tears to my heart.
This brings me to ponder about life... will I have the same courage to face the truth when hit with reality? What will I do? Most probably the first thing that comes to mind would be, "Why me?" Life is too short for so many whys, so might as well make the most out of it and try to live it to the fullest. Death has no mercy nor sympathies. Live each day like it's your last as I don't want to look back with regrets.
Found this orange plastic ball right outside the gate and when I peered in I realized it wasn't just an empty ball, there is a hamster in it! It's too late a Christmas present and no one gives hamsters for CNY. Anyway, I've decided to home this little thing albeit the displeasure of dear Vicki. Have not named it yet as I'm not sure of it's gender... perhaps Stuart if it's a boy ;P
"Stuart" arrived in this orange ball.
