This is supposed to be published yesterday but I was too poof in moving and shifting all the stuff in the house. As my sister has bought a new flat. My mum decided to move in with her into the new HDB flat while we clear out the stuff in our current apartment so we can rent it out for some money. "Asset enhancment leh!!"
Anyway, was clearing the stuff of my old man when I spotted this whole cache of diaries he wrote. Memories just flooded where I clearly still remember, everyday, every night during news time (around 8pm). My late father would sit in his chair and starts to write his diary. He continued to do this until he was bedridden.....
Anyway, all of us read through a few entries. His writing was elegant and very very neat and easy to read. (Unlike mine which are terrible! :P ) Most of the entries are just boring stuff like what he ate, buy and other mundane daily stuff.... a bit boring but once in a while, we get to see some very interesting entries. Like one which he felt a bit sorry and regretted on scolding my sister for waking him up and etc... little things here and there that make these diaries so much more meaningful to us. I wonder my kids will get to read about my blog one day after I passed away and get the same feeling?
I took a photo of the diaries on the bed before packing them into a box. Its going to my sister's house first before we decide what to do with them. There were also tons of old photos which I guess we still have a lot of things to sort.
And here's the funny part, my father passed away on the 3rd Sep (thus I want to write this piece yesterday) and the day I found the diaries was on Friday. 2 days before the 9th death anniversay.
Maybe he wants us to read about his life again? :)
