A Funeral

28 Oct 2023 – Mount Elisabeth Hospital/Novena

Wed: total fan of GoogleMaps – welcome HelenO’Toole to SIN and nice to meet her who is giving some symposiums@LaSalle for BroJoe’s centennial events. Do not have any recollections to meeting her at any of the other McNally events here or in Ireland and delighted to get acquainted. Looking forward to getting to know her better and hope that we will be able to do a driving trip in Ireland for 2024.

First time here@MtE/Novena to visit with Ivy who is recovering from her back surgery. Convenient&easy public transportation with the MRT on the NSL/RedLine bringing me to Novena and following well-marked signs underground.  No joke to be having such a major surgery at this stage of life – speedy recovery to her. Good that her appetite requested for popiah – took the opportunity to get delivered for her dinner.

On the way back, stopped@DhobyGhaut/PlazaSIN to do some shopping since I had to change to bus16 to get back to my 4walls. Multi-tasking is too tiring nowadays – was in bed before 21hrs!

Thu: tkx Seb for catching up and setting me with his NetflixAC. Now can watch more movies – like I am not already spending time on the screen than needed,hahaha! HorFun-dinner using CDCvouchers@MT-hawkers.

Pray that AndyBrown&family are safe in the midst of another mass shooting in ME/USA.

Going to be another long day – had to reschedule meds-delivery,etc. Long bus-ride to JalanRumahTinggi for the wake and funeral to MandaiCrematorium. Only get to catch up with some of these cousins at funerals!! and, here with cousinsRoy&CalvinLAM,nephew GeorgeLAM+cousinsSaraLAM&JasonTAN. Tkx to cousinJohnWONG for the ride from the crematorium to the MRT-Yishun, he is still a good driver at 82.

Sat: taking a quiet rest day…
