RIP my dearest grandma

Initially I wanted to write a light post for Friday but my grandma's sudden passing yesterday morning at 6am did gave me a shock when I woke up at 7am and received a call from my uncle breaking the news. I've written about my grandma being in coma months ago and finally after the doctor pestered us to discharge her after seeing that she could breathe on her own and opened her eyes, she passed away days after.

I think it was for the better. I'm glad that she doesn't need to go through anymore sufferings. Or could it be that she had the sixth sense that we were going to visit my grandpa's grave at Nirvana in Semenyih this Sunday after moving his remains from Ipoh 2 weeks ago and decided that she went as well?

After knowing the news, I did however went to work. I don't know if I was being rude but even I was there by her bed that morning, there was nothing I could do and because it was my last two weeks with the company, I had all my appointments all planned out to handover my job to the senior manager as the company has not found anyone to take over my responsibilities. I was also in charged of the MIHAS exhibition next week and I just couldn't excuse myself from all the workload.



I hope grandma understands me and forgive me by not being there with her earlier.

Mom & dad couldn't make it as they were both overseas. I as the eldest child will have to represent my parents at the funeral. It was held at Nirvana Memorial Center in Sungai Besi and I must say that this is my first time partaking in a prayer as a family member in a funeral. When I was 3 years old, my grandpa passed away and I couldn't remember much about then.



This place looks like a hotel and there's a nice, cosy and comfortable lounge area for visitors and family members. There's even 2 Gintell massage chairs if you have sore muscles and aching back. Refreshments are provided and they take care of every single detail professionally. All you need is to attend, and then pay!

The prayers will be held daily from 7.30pm to 11.30pm from Thursday to this Saturday 19th and on Sunday, it would be from 8.30am to 10.30am before sending her for burial in Nirvana Memorial Park in Semenyih.

RIP grandma.
