It's been one heck of a week! I've experienced both happy and sad moments. Let us start with the sad moment shall we? My husband's dearest grandfather passed away 2 days ago at a hospital in Tondano, North Sulawesi. Losing a loved one is never easy. I know. I've been there. Unlike me (when losing my grandmother), my husband accepted it with a certain amount of grace. He believes that his grandfather is now in a far better place and will always keep him in his memories. Opa Nicholas will surely be missed but will never be forgotten! Readers, if I were you and still have grandparents around, I'd visit them this today, hug them and tell them how much I love them... and oh, maybe ask them to tell their personal life stories! I personally love hearing old stories of my grandparents. Those stories make me feel close to them.

And on happier note *i'm all smiles*... my husband is in town for 10 days!! Feels so good having him back even though only for 10 days. So please excuse me if I don't blog for couple of days, my husband and I are going to spend some quality time together. Have a wonderful weekend all! And to my moslem friends, Happy Idul Fitri and have a wonderful holiday!
