生老病死

生老病死,人生不就是如此。
外婆去世不到一个月,我们又得到噩耗 Tenom的叔婆昨晚安详离去了。
单单今年就有三个年长的亲戚过身了。

父母说,叔婆对他们很好。以前每一次回去 Tenom的时候, 叔婆和叔公都会给他们水果,而且还坚持不收钱。

叔婆去世的时候,我们刚好在医院,我父母有看到她咽下最后一口气。反而她的女儿老远从Kedah赶回来却来不及送她走。我看见她哭得很惨,很凄凉,心里也不好受, 我想换作是我应该也会像她一样吧。

我发现到叔婆和外婆都有一个共同点,病魔的折腾使他们身体在短短两个礼拜爆瘦,仅剩下皮包骨,看了都心酸。
另外,当一个人刚刚去世的时候,他们虽然已经停止呼吸,但心还是有在跳动。

树欲静而风不止, 子欲养而亲不在。

这句话,说中了每个与父母相隔两岸的孩子们的心坎。
很多孩子因为工作繁忙或经济上的能力不足,一年才能回来一次看看父母,有些甚至没有回来。
虽然现在通讯的发达能够让我们方便联络亲人,但总不比一家人吃个团圆饭来的好。
怎样都还是缺少了那种团聚的温馨感。

试想想,你和兄弟姐妹们都安顿在远方,剩下两老在家,成日盼着儿女们回来看看,有特别日子才能看见你们,那是多么悲哀的场景啊。

所以阿,要趁父母都在身边的时候,好好孝敬父母,不要等到他们年华老去,卧病床上,患上老人痴呆,不认得你,说不出话时,甚至不在了才来懊悔莫及。

再见, 婆婆。

2016年5月27日下午2时,我们最挚爱的婆婆在Papar医院寿终,享年86岁。

我21岁生日派对时和婆婆生前的最后一张合照,这时候的她已经消瘦很多。

妈妈说婆婆去世的时候很安详,只是挣扎了一下就走了。
当天整个下午乌云满天,上天好像知道我们的失去了亲人。
一路上望着窗外绵绵细雨,车里增加了一种凄然的氛围,
脑海浮现了和婆婆在一起的珍贵回忆。

婆婆血糖不稳定,每一次稍微太低就要送往医院,这样的情况已经持续一两年了。
都是住在Papar的二舅,表姐和妈妈轮流照顾。
妈妈因为要照顾婆婆拿了很多假期,跑上跑下,好像把医院当成了第二个家。
有时候二舅半夜一个电话就把妈妈急坏了,
妈妈也不想多就赶紧连夜驾车从Putatan往Papar医院看婆婆。

我什么也帮不上忙,妈妈只是吩咐我在家煮饭。
身为女儿的看见妈妈为了婆婆那么疲惫,我心里也不好受。
现在婆婆回到主的身边,我们大家心头上的负担也终于都放了下来。
婆婆再也不用受苦了。


5月30日在亚庇中华殡仪馆举行公祭仪式。

这是我第二次参加葬礼。第一次是在十二年前公公去世的时候,完全没有印象。

原来佛教的仪式是那么多步骤。一下子又拜,一下子又跪。
虽然我们一家人不是佛教,但为了尊敬老人家还是照着做。
(第二天我的膝盖痛得要命)



警察带路到Lokawi.

安葬仪式

再见了,婆婆。

Mother's Day Popup Cards

Recently, I'm into card making, I'm making pop-up cards!
I learnt the tutorials from youtube, they may look easy, 
but it actually needs a lot of practice and effort and materials.

For example, these pop-up flowers, no matter how many times I tried, I still couldn't make it blooms perfectly as shown in the video. So I had to improvise and made it 10 petals instead of 7.


I'm making Mother's Day theme cause Mother's day is coming real soon. 
So for those who are interested in buying it you may contact me. 
Only RM5 each. Trust me, you can't find a pop-up card like that in KK with such price.
I guarantee you these lovely cards will make your mother's heart POP!

Here are some of the cards I made. There are 3 different type of pop-ups inside.




4 different front designs.









All of these are handmade, decorated with various embellishments.
None of them are identical, each has different colour, pop-ups and wordings.

 Grab it before it's sold out. Only 20 available.

Sometimes when you don't know what to get for your mother, the best and cheapest way is to give her a simple card with your handwritten gratitude right from the bottom of your heart.

Hope you guys like it.
I will upload more on pinterest later and more coming soon.

It's a scam.

About 2 weeks ago, I tried to sell my wrong sized ladies sandals on Mudah.my. I wrote there payment method is through online banking.

2days later, a foreign number sms me saying that she's interested in buying the shoes. But she wanted me to reply her ONLY via email. I thought wow this is kinda fast, so I replied her.

She claimed herself as Halina Rosa from Wales, and wanted to buy the shoes for her relative in Malaysia. My mum said she sounded suspicious when she heard about it. But I still proceed without thinking much since she promised to pay first before I ship my shoes to her relative.

So I gave her my account number. And the next moment, I got an email claiming itself as First Direct bank. It stated that the buyer had banked in an amount of money, and the amount of money is not as I stated before. It showed me the receipt. I googled, the bank existed. But the email content look very suspicious. It had animating words, it got a huge smiley face, it used different colour, different font, got grammar problem some more.

In 2nd email, it stated that I must ship the shoes first, and give the bank the shipment tracking number, and I must ship the shoes within 24 hours, or else I will face the consequences. It mentioned FBI there. The whole thing sounds very absurd. Why the need to involve FBI?

Then I receive an email from the buyer. She said that I should have received the receipt by now. And she gave me the name of her relative and address.

Guess what, her relative is a guy.
Why would a guy buy a ladies sandals???!!!
OK, never mind that.
The address is pusat bekalan air Johor. This whole thing is getting more and more ridiculous.

And then suddenly, it hit me in the head, THIS IS A SCAM!

Then I checked the email, it's a fake email.

WARNING : firstdirectbanks@zoho.com   


this email is not from First Direct bank. If you receive it, ignore it at once or report it to First Direct Bank. 

and don't reply to this number +4494817260 and +4433451813

and this email halinarosa01@hotmail.com


Without further ado, I told my mum to withdraw the balance in my account. Cause the buyer got my name, hp number, email and my account number, they can do whatever they want. Thank God we got to cash out our money before it's too late. Until now, I didn't reply the person, and she didn't reply me to inquire about her shoes. So it's proven that this whole thing is a fraud.

So I wanna remind all of you out there, if you really wanna sell things, make sure don't make your number public, and it's safer via cash upon delivery. If you must ship your item, make sure you get the money first.
