September'09 - An Unhappy Month

This month has been an up and down one for me. Good news and bad news come one right after another and my emotions have been going uphill and downhill like a sine wave :-(

The latest one really broke my heart. Here at one moment, we were celebrating the lives of 5 birthday boys and girls at a poolside party and on the very next day, we were mourning the passing of an ex-student and friend of mine.

"Life it seems, is not without its sense of irony"

In short, this friend of mine met with an accident, got knocked down by a car, was in coma for 3 days without gaining consciousness, and he's gone... just like that. I've been in a very deep sad of mood the whole of yesterday, especially after paying a last visit to him at the hospital. Is life really that fragile? Is life really that short? And it's so unpredictable!! I mean, he's already in his final year of uni life!! Why?? WHY??!!! There are so many people out there, criminals and terrorists who deserve to die, but not him, a young man with a bright future ahead of him. He hasn't even enjoyed his life yet! Looking at his family members, as well as the loads of friends that he had, I'm sure that we all are gonna miss him.

Let us all treasure every moment in our lives, work hard, play harder and love even more. After all, we will not know what is set upon us the very next minute of our lives.

人生有多少个十年?? 珍惜眼前人.... 珍惜一切...

RIP Choo Jian Yi
