RIP my lovely ciku tree.

24 March 2013, Sunday

If it was a usual Sunday, I should be at home with mom, but today, I got a wedding dinner to attend, therefore, I didn't manage to go home, and not able to see my beloved ciku tree for the last time. 

The noon was very heavy rain with storm, after saying goodbye with mom, we separated. I head to the wedding dinner and mom went home. 

About 3.30pm, a friend posted a photo of my house's tree informing that it had collapsed! Maybe it was hit by storm. I was shocked and given a call to mom soonest possible. Fortunately, mom was alright and house is safe. 

Thank you for the tree that saved our house and keep my mom safe. 

Sadly, this ciku tree that had accompanied our family for a few decades, had sacrificed itself. 
We used to have so much fun and joy under this tree. 

前人种树, 后人乘凉
One generation plants the tree in whose shade another generation rests. 

Remember my mom told me that it was my grandmother who gave her the seeds of this ciku tree. After years, it grows up to a strong, shady and fruitful tree. 

My family was never a rich man's house, till today, no air-cond has installed in the house. Whenever we felt hot, we go under the tree, the shade has nicely covered us from the sun. Enjoy an ice cream with the breezy air. We were satisfied.

It was a fruitful tree, it growed big and sweet ciku. Whenever a harvest season, we could get loads of them. When we were a kid, mom always carefully feed us the fruit as the seed is real big and smooth, it will easily accidently choke in if not careful. I always complain that it was too sweet. Now I miss it, so much. 

As time goes by, we all grown up, the tree was getting old. We slowly forgot about this tree, we just treat it as a decorative item.

When we have party, we have it under the tree.

Chinese new year, we hang firecrackers and angpow on it.

Mid-autumn festival, we hang tang lung on it, lit candle on it. 

Unlike old times,

When the weather is hot, we go to air-conditioned mall. 

When we feel like eating fruits, we go out and buy. 

Coincidently, I just bought a pack of ciku on that day, and remind me of the ciku tree, and later received the bad news. *sad*

Todate, although we had left it behind, but it never give up on us.

But, this is the last time...

To ciku tree, 
I deeply sorry for not taking care of you, truely appreciate your efforts on us. Once again, thank you for protecting us, may you rest in peace. V_V

Goodbye, my beloved ciku tree.

In Love with Hokkaido の The Fantasy Town - OTARU (小樽)

After impressed by the breathtaking view of flowers sea, in my heart was thinking, I had done the most important visit in Hokkaido, therefore, I did not expect any other thing to impress me further. But, I was wrong, the places that we are going today has given me surprises, one by one.
Yesterday was too tired of running after the sea of flowers, I was consider fainted in the hotel room at night. Haha.. Luckily, this morning when I wake up, I felt refreshed!
As we are in the city today, I decided to dress up colorfully, you will see in the photos later, haha, guess I will not wear the same combination back at my home country. :-P
Breakfast! This hotel does not has a large hall for dining, guests have to line up to wait for empty table. This was my first experience that have to line up for hotel breakfast! Yet, the food that served were just so so.

This morning, we are early to get on the bus as we do not want to rush like yesterday and make everybody waited for us.
The bus start movi…

~ HOME ~

Was here last weekend with a bunch of crazy friends, it is located a Banda Hilir, Melaka, just about 10 minutes walking distance to Dataran Pahlawan. 

As there is no "TURN IN HERE" signage at the junction, we had missed the junction and had to make a big round to come back here coz its a one way street. For the 2nd time, contacted the friend who been here before, after passing Hotel Equatorial, must slow down and look for the building of "Huang Association", right after the building, there is this small road turning in to the left (the road is VERY small, its just a lorong actually, ngam ngam for 1 car to pass only). 
Finally, we had reached the destination. Was welcomed by a great smile by Ms. Rebecca aka Becky, there were a couple sitting at the living hall, Becky introduced them to us too! She then guide us to to our chalet -- Ixora.…
