carpe diem

just got a shocking mail this afternoon about a highschool classmate overseas who had died from a cardiac arrest during a surgery. and i just realised that it was only 6 months ago that rafael had survived from his operation. how lucky we are to have our healthy and cheerful rafael back!

and this reminds me so much that we really need to seize the day and grab hold of every living moment to love the people we love.

my classmate was survived by her husband and 6-month-old daughter. and again this reminds me that i really need to take good care of myself so i can have the ability to take care of rafael.

遠方的一個中學同學最近進行手術時突然心臟停止跳動而離世了,才忽然想起原來靖愷進行那次大手術只是六個月前的事。靖愷,你能夠再次健健康康跳跳紮紮地回到我們的身邊,爸爸媽媽是多幸運呢!

靖愷,今天的噩耗又再次提醒媽媽,要抓緊每一分每一秒,來愛你和身邊的人。

那位同學還有丈夫和一名只有六個月大的女兒,但願他們都能勇敢地生活下去。

靖愷,媽媽會好好的照顧自己,讓自己有能力來好好的照顧你。

Can't imagine losing the spouse, yet alone leaving such a precious little girl behind. What a tradegy. Hope daddy would find strength and courage from his little girl to live on.

I was shocked too... so sad esp leaving a 6-month old girl behind. A minor surgery can take a life away. We are just humans. Nothing is in our control.

I am so sorry to hear this. As you said, we all need to cherish what we have. You never know what will happen.

Also remind me to make arrangements to ensure my loved ones will be taken care of. Time to consider buying more insurance...
