It's hard to be positive...

I know I've been away from my blog for more than a moon but it has been a time of introspection. CNY2008 has come and we're almost through with the celebrations but 2008 and the year of the Rat has not been kind so far.

I lost my Ah Ma about 3 months back. Every CNY, we would visit her on the 1st day. It's been like that for as long as I can remember but now things change. It will never be the CNY I know anymore. Heartbreaking as it is, I lost my beloved Uncle Louis about a month ago. I still cannot understand why he was taken from us so suddenly. I saw him last Christmas and he was so happy to see all of us at his house to exchange gifts. I miss you Uncle Louis.

At least I thank the heavens that my father got better from a very taxing illness just before CNY. I myself got sick on the first day of CNY and even as I write this, I am just getting better (after falling ill again over the weekend).

I pray things get better for my family.
