TGIF… but…

Thank God, it’s Friday!!! *had plans to game till 4am and sleep the whole sat morning away* but… i would have to scrap that. Mom asked if i could attend something with them (parents)… To ‘visit’ or ‘pay respect’… *** Well, it has been 1 year since Dad’s best friend – Uncle Chong, passed away. Due to heart attack. He knew something was wrong when he felt the pain, headed over to GP twice but that GP dismissed it, thinking that it’s nothing serious… but 2 days past and then he was gone.
