But really, Grandma gave me the best present ever. My dad. And to think I have the best of both worlds, my mum's side of Anglican Christianity and on my dad's side, of Buddhist taoist faith. Even then, I embrace both religions even though I was brought up as a Christian. Purely because looking at my dad's side of the family, they are just so kind, soft spoken and light hearted. They hardly speak ill of anyone and believe that all faiths are good. Anyhow, what's even better is I get to celebrate the Buddhist culture as well as the Christian traditions all year round.
So, last night at my Aunt Sa Chim's house, we gathered together as a family again to pay our respect and in remembrance of Amah. It wasn't a sad occasion, we all know Grandma had a wonderful peaceful life when she was alive, instead it was more of joyous occasion that we could all still love each other as cousins, uncles and aunties. And with Aunt Sa Chim's cooking, it just reminded us very much of Amah being with us in spirit.
