In memory of my father-in-law a.k.a. Daddy

Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I last wrote.

Today I missed a lovely person and I'd like to talk about him. He’s my father-in-law, the late Mr. Thaddeus Manson. I am very lucky to have a wonderful father-in-law. At the age of 70s, he enjoyed working with people and live actively and independent at the kampung. He loved mingling with young people and always perceive things from a positive point of view. Indeed he’s a person with young heart.

In June last year, he suffered a heart attack. After discharged from the hospital, he moved to stay with us. He gradually recovered and continued to stay with us. During his stay, we used to talk about many things in life – love, life, family during his younger days. 

At times I asked for his guidance on how I should overcome certain matters in life, and he would gladly advise me. I truly adored him. Besides, he’s a good cook too. A lot of times, he would reach home early and prepare dinner for us. Eventually I became pampered by him. 

Everyday, he would get up early, dressed up and waited for me to be ready, so I can send him to Donggongon town, his usual hangout place to meet his friends and relatives.

Sadly, he had another heart attack, and he passed away peacefully on Feb 29, 2012. His departure left me, hubby and the rest of our family a big void in our heart. I will forever miss his dearly.

We believe when a person departs physical world, his/her soul will continue its journey. Daddy, wherever you go, I pray for your continuous safe journey of the soul. May God bless you and shower you with abundant Light. Amen.

Harvest festival, the highlight of all Natives' celebration in Sabah is just around the corner. Exciting & heat competitions of Unduk Ngadau to see which young lady will be crown Miss Kaamatan.
I participated in the Kaamatan celebration of my husband's clan - Sinakagon Wong Loong on 10 May 2014 at Kg. Ramayah.
There were 2 main events for that day: Unduk Ngadau and Magagung competition. All 5 family branches produced various version of gong beating and rhythm. Every time when the gong beating start, I felt the echo of sound shook to the core of my soul. This is when I realised I have strong Kadazan gene in me too. I am so so proud to be a Sino-Kadazan!

Greetings! Kopivosian!

Remember my niece Lil' Rosanna? Or we would call her Mei-Mei (The little girl) in the family.

Well, it's her birthday coming. She's celebrating her birthday on Monday, 19 July 2010 at school during school recess. She has asked her mom for a "homemade" birthday cake so she could bring to school. And my job? It's to design her birthday invitation cards for her little friends and teachers at school.

Mei-Mei is turning 6 this year. Since she loves Disney characters so much, especially Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, I've decided to design her invitation card with the theme she loves most. :)
I stumbled on a fantastic website that creates Mickey and Minnie invitation cards for sale from Lisa's handmade invitation cards. Since it's impossible for me to order from Lisa, I decided to do my own version of DIY birthday card for Mei-Mei. There was no tutorials in Lisa&#…

To my love, thanks for everything...
