When my time comes, who would weep as if they’d lost their own family? Who would be grateful for my life – whether they agreed with my choices or not? Would they look at how I’ve loved, and see that

This morning, Singapore woke up to news of the inevitable. Mr. Lee Kuan Yew passed on at 3.18am, going gently into the dawn. People are grieving in so many ways, whether they knew him or not, whether they liked him

Extraordinary kind of ordinary day

It has been a surreal week. Preparing for KK’s upcoming move to Melbourne. Making a favourite dessert. Having unusual weekday family meals out. Waiting in a project-less period marked by pencil bookings in the weeks to come. Meeting up with

A believing life (27): For Death

BK went home to the Lord yesterday morning. She had been ill for a while now – the cancer returned. I had not seen her face to face for 2.5 years. Weeks back, I had listened to another close friend

This Advent and Christmas, we had some special visitors. Twin caterpillars :) One of them (Le) eventually ran away before pupating; the other (Mon) stayed; through her, I was blessed, consoled, and strengthened. In watching both of them grow, I saw

Centrifugal heart. Centripetal Grace.

A sobering September of wakes. From dust, to dust return. Leaving a trail of love. Hopefully. The series of wakeful evenings and even more sobering mornings, brought many faces to mind. Those who passed many years ago; others more recently.

A believing life (25): Content & Confident

Sunday’s lectionary was Exodus 1:8 – 2:10. Was struck by how much women featured in this short reading. Different ages, status, vocations. Yet each of them carried something of God’s light in and presence with them (yes, even Pharaoh’s daughter!).
