raising the red lantern...

Saturday, 17th February 2007 – 10:24pm Singapore time

First and foremost, Gong Xi Gong Xi Gong Xi Ni! Hey! Hehe… Happy Lunar New Year, y’all! Hope we all get lots of hong baos! Yes, I do receive hong baos too… In case you forgot (or refuse to register), I am half-Chinese… Anyways, good fortune and prosperity to all! =)

It was another tough session of dragonboating today… Nasi (Mr. Coach) made us do a one-hour set! One hour of paddling! In the hot sun! I am burnt beyond recognition right now… But as usual, it was a good workout and I am heading back for more torture tomorrow morning… Hehe…

I wanna give a special shout-out to a very good friend of mine Mark Liew… Unlike some of us, Mark is not really having a good festive season cos his dad is currently in hospital… Mark’s dad was suffering from prostate cancer and after an operation to remove his testicles, he suffered from a bad infection which affected his anal area and areas beyond… He had to remove some of his anal parts and this didn’t help… He now has some gangrene in his chest and the family has decided not to have any more operational procedures done on him… Doctors have given him one week left to live…

Mark told me he has already thought about making the funeral arrangements… This whole story has made me wonder: Is it better that you can mentally prepare for the death of a loved one or will it hit harder if it was a sudden blow? Pro-longed pain and uncertainty or a sure shot? I don’t know… It bites anyhow…

So Mark, my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family…

Stay strong bro…
