9 Dec 2008 – Socially busy
Time flies and the weekend is over. A lively Sat lunch with Leonard, Chuan & family from Kuching; his children are about the same age as my grandchildren… hopefully there will be a number 4 from them too!
Yun & Dika hosted a delightful family Sun lunch. Met up with our 6 aunt LAM Poh Ying, her daughter in law Letty YANG and grandson Justin CHIA. Cousin Robert CHIA was the first of our generation to pass away in 1999.
Mon was a public holiday, Hari Raya Haji. The 0800hrs prayers were loud enough to wake the neighbourhood but it was late compared to Dika’s 0600hrs flight! Jo, Yun & I visited with 4 & 13 aunt LAM Poh Kow & LAM Poh Suen. We paid respects to our grandparents LAM Song Kee & CHAN Swee Ngor at Kwong Wai Siew Peck San Theng; to my parents LAM Tin Yue & TSANG May Lan at Mandai Crematorium.
Tue- Yun & I were at Mt Elizabeth Hospital with 15 uncle LAM Tin Cheong for his tests. Edith left for Vancouver yesterday morning. The day ended with a pleasant family dinner at my brother Steven. Yun has to pack and hopefully she will manage to fit everything into her suitcase. To have her as family & friend is a blessing…
