For the first time in my life.......

Thanks to my second sister who initiated a plan that we should all do a "mother's day gathering" and attendance from my mother's children, grandchildren and great grand daughter is required.

As I was thinking hard of what to give to my mother personally from me personally,(not share share one among the siblings) then suddenly  thought,there was just one thing that I have not done even once in my entire 46 years.

So I called up my good friend, I told her that I wanted to place a order of 12 stalks of carnation,she cautioned me that it were be rather expensive particularly for carnation, she advised me to opt for roses instead but I said no need lah, cos for once in my life, I just wanted to give her this hand bouquet of carnation just to make her happy.

I even told my friend as a surprise that I wanted her to help to deliver that hand bouquet of carnation towards the end of the dinner at one restaurant downtown,thank God I have good friend that who was willing to do this for me,( On a Saturday night like that and she is staying at the other end ,thanks Grace,truly appreciate it)
 
I was glad that all my siblings were there and to me, it was a wonderful gathering, who cared about the food right?
 That's me on the left,next to me , my youngest sister, my mom, my oldest sister,on the far right,my second sister and my brother at the back.
 My mom's one and only great grand daughter (Leticia Yeang) thank God that my mom could taste the joy of having a great grand daughter.

P/S : Thank God for my mom, may God continue to bless her in her living years,Amen
