Backdated-Visit to my dad’s grave

I try to bring my kids each time I visit my dad’s grave, just to make sure they remember they have a kung-kung whom I know will spoil them rotten and love them to pieces.  I really feel so sad that my dad did not get a chance to see any of his grandchildren. I remember the time I was pregnant with my 1st pregnancy and he was still alive. He was so excited and told my mom that he will get well and they will together gether help to take care of their 1st grandchild. Unfortunately my 1st pregnancy ended up in a miscarriage into my 2nd week and he was devastated. He was very angry and scolded everyone except me.


Look at them oblivious to their surrounding and monkeying around.


I don’t know why but each time I’m there I will also take a walk around and look at the deceased gravestones and look at their age they died and start to wonder why….keh poh!

  1. Your post makes me miss my dad today. Thank you for that, as I always feel better when he’s been in my mind a lot in a day. My father died before my little kids came along, although he had a great relationship with my older two. I’m sorry these two won’t have him in their lives. Since I live on the other side of the world, his grave is not within easy reach, but I will certainly take the kids to visit when we next holiday in the US.

    just having him in your memory is just as good, don’t really need to visit the grave….

  2. Dun sad… I’m sure he can ‘see’ them from above 😉

    hmmm…i dont know…but sure feel so sayang he’s not around…

    Of course ur dad will love Rachel to bits cos she’s sooooo adorable!

  23. Just reminded me to appreciate my parents while they are still around.
    I guess I can understand your feeling of wishing your children could enjoy kung-kung’s presence. Am sure your dad is looking from above.

    yeah should show care and concern when they are still around…

  24. You made me wanna cry Amah Made me miss my FIL *sniff sniff* It’s good that you took the kids to visit their grandpa’s grave….seems like a very nice and peaceful place eh?

    wah u so close to your FIL one ah? yeah that place looks pretty good, more like a garden rather than a burial ground

  25. Nice la.. Nilai Memorial park..
    You saw the photos I took fr my mum’s grave or not? The grave there.. so messy.. and then got drug addicts getting their fix there some more.. haih.
    My mum also, she loved kids and used to baby sit friend’s children, but she didn’t get to see any of her grandchildren, she left before any of them were born. Sigh.

    omg! drug addicts! yerrrrr….so sad hor…when one of our parents not around to see the kids…

  26. I never managed to get to know both my grandpa
    But I know they will love me very much, even now

  28. Is that Nirvana or those modern grave yard? I can’t bring my children to see their ah mah grave cos it is too hot and have to climb up hill and such. You know what I mean. The olden type wan la. Like you, I too will look at other tombstone.
