Al-Fatihah.

I lost my great grandfather to acute myocardial infection last thursday night. Alhamdullillah, dier pergi pada hari yg baik dan bulan yang baik juga.

I rushed back to n.sembilan to attend the funeral rites.

Everyone was there.

Its strange how we all wait until someone passes away or until disaster strikes to get together.

Its sad but unfortunately true.

Alhamdullillah, the late Jaafar bin Othman was laid to rest at tanah perkuburan in felda sendayan.

Semoga dia ditempatkan dengan orang² yg beriman. InsyaAllah.


I still remember the days when the house was still all wood.

How we (my cousin's and i) would visit my great grandparents @ sendayan.

We would run up and down the stairs of the old wooden house.

Play with mercun, bunga api and meriams come Ramadhan and the night of Syawal many² moons ago.

That was when my great grandma (my grandma's mum) was still alive.

Then we lost her one day, out of the blue while she was performg the subuh prayer.

Still with her forehead on the prayer mat

Alhamdullillah, i think i've been very blessed to have met my great grandparents, both my grandma's parents and my grandfather's mother.

Not many pple have that privelege of meeting them.

I was really sad to see him go. All his grandchildren especially.

And my grandma. Well after seeing her that day, i feel like she was getting a bit distraught.

I'm so worried about her.

So many lessons that i learnt that day at the funeral.

Well...

I'll be back soon after the wave of presentations and assignments die down.
