Maybank Celebrating Family Bonds.

If you have been following me long enough, you would know that i'm a very family girl. I spend not a little but most of my time with my family. For my past 24 years, I am proud to say that we spend every festive countdown together. We have meals at least 5 times a week, we still shop and travel together! (: Some of you may start to frown and find me uncool or even weird. But, I've been brought up this way and proud to be the granddaughter, daughter and sister; just the way I am. Incidents have brought us closer together.

My Father has had a major brain surgery 5 years ago, a surgery that could have brought him away from us forever.

My Grandmother diagnosed with liver cancer 4 years back, I saw how much pain she was in. The picture of Ah Ma vigorously pressing on the clicker so that morphine could enter her blood stream immediately to minimize the pain she was in, that's a picture that would stay in my mind forever.

My Grandfather having Extensive Aorta Tear just July last year that even a surgery would only have a 5% success rate. How our family wanted to let him go with as minimal pain as possible but ended up going ahead with the gamble. Just because of something Ah Gong said. He said "如果动手术会有5%机会,没有做就一定会死" (If I do the operation, I will have 5% chance, if I don't, I will die for sure).  


Never thought that we could spend Ah Gong's 75th birthday in August 2013 (the whole aorta tear happened just weeks before his 75th birthday). But we did! Even though we had to celebrate it in the hospital because he was still recuperating after the major surgery.
