My last good bye with no regrets



I just said my last goodbye to my Dad before leaving Ipoh and returned back to KL to visit Baby G at the Hospital as he was in ICU. It was very very hard to do so. He was supposed to have left us according to my brother but waited for me to arrive. I managed to spend some time with him telling him everything will be just alright and that he can rest now. I told him that we will be fine and that he has done well together with mom with the 3 of us. I am grateful that I managed to see him one more time while he could still open his eyes a little to acknowledge my voice.

If you have not called or hug your parents lately, today will be a good day as tomorrow may be too late. I was not too late as I came back to Malaysia to be with both my parents, took care of them when they needed me most. I have no regrets even now that both of them are not with me anymore. Most importantly, do take care of yourself as I am learning to do so and I am at peace now. 🙏

I may be young but time is what I can't buy so we must learn and improve 1% every single day. We must learn to take good care of our-self then only we will able to take care our family. Going all out in every single day and everything that we do make our-self no regret.


Once again may Uncle Chen rest in peace and stay strong Mr. Ernie.

Deep condolence to you Mr Ernie and your family.

Indeed, it is so true if we wait for the last day or at the end of everything/anything to say/do/improve/etc, it is just too late.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of your father. He will be truly missed and I will include him in my daily prayers.

One of the most common mistakes people make, is to leave things until the last minute.
Many people, knowing that they must do something by a particular deadline, will wait and wait, and do nothing to prepare.

They put the thought out of their mind by saying, "I've still got plenty of time." So they wait until there is not a minute to spare, then they get cracking and make an all-out effort to achieve the deadline. This is so common a trait in human nature that it is almost standard practice.

So if you are a procrastinator, you will build a bad reputation for yourself. And you will suffer the consequences of being a person who cannot be trusted to get the job done on time.Prepare, well in advance of the event.

Winners prepare meticulously and well.
Losers think that they can leave preparation since they, "Work better under pressure."
They may work harder under pressure but there results are not better. They could never be. Not even in theory.

Preparation beats procrastination, every time.So, Don't leave it. Prep it!

Thank you for all your knowledge.

It may be difficult but that is the fact that we have to face because every living thing will surely go as well. As long as we value them when they are there so no need to regret and lament their departure.

Dear Mr. Ernie,

Even though I just met uncle Chen for 1 time and also the only one time, but that time it really recall all my memories with my beloved grandpa who passed away because of cancer.

It let me remember how was the feeling when I'm losing someone who cares me when I was young.

However, it doesn't means an ending for us but it was a good memories for us to been through with.

Once again may Uncle Chen rest in peace and stay strong Mr. Ernie.
