From A Sea Burial

25 Feb 2023 – To A Birthday

We begin to die from the moment we are born, for birth is the cause of death. The nature of decay is inherent in youth, the nature of sickness is inherent in health, in the midst of life we are verily in death — Buddha

ie Birth and Death go hand in hand!

Wed&Thu: was not feeling too well and had to cancel my visit to bro Steven – did not want to spread whatever bug that was bugging me to a home full of seniors!

Fri: an early start bus196 changing@Bedok to bus2 heading towards ChangiVillage. Passing by the ChangiPrison always bring back memories of the days when father drove us to the beach house. Being a child who had motion sickness then, would be happy as I knew we were near the destination – B&Wpix  downloaded.

ChangiV-Hawkers is the few places that has my favourite Kedondong/SpondiasDulcis 沙梨juice

Some new interesting seafoods eating places to try in the future, but for now, a short walk is the better choice

13uncle PakHoy’s final wish for not being enclosed in an urn but be scattered about, thus a sea burial was fulfilled by his 2daughters Yeng&Ching & grand daughter Jessica today.
The ride out to the seas with a nice breeze was thank goodness not too choppy and may he now finally RIP.

A quick trip to YanChuanRoasters/UbiAve2 to pick up roast foods for tonight and tkx for T@Les&Ivy. Yeng&family brought fancy yummy cakes from TigerLily and the passionfruit cake was good.
Appreciations&tkx for yummy foods to Calvin’s Bday dinner.
Iyas homemade curry and most unique savoury NasiLemak Bday cake was the best cake for the Bday boy who is not a fan of the usual sweet cakes. 苏亚吉&陈安安BlackVinegarPig’sTrotter 猪脚醋 – all so delicious, pix credits to Helen.
My contribution was the presentation of the roasted foods from YanChuan – did not have energy&time to make my fruitsalad, Calvin’s favourite! Appreciations to Chris for the ride back to the East, nice to be driven and be able to just grab a quick shower before crashing after such a long busy day. Has been a while ago since I could handle more than 1event per day!
