I had a wonderful Mother's Day. Jaymes cooked dinner for me on Saturday night, eve of Mother's Day and presented me with a video presentation he made himself. I can't post it onto my blog because it contained some personal photos.
15 of my foreign students gave me carnations and we had buffet lunch at a Brazilian Churrascaria.
While I'm enjoying my Mother's Day, some mothers were griefing on theirs. They lost their children.
A Taiwanese fighter jet crashed on Friday morning (11th May 2007) during an exercise, killing its two pilots. Two visiting Singaporean military personnel were also killed, and 9 others injured.
The body of Private Fan Yao Jin - the second SAF serviceman killed in Taiwan military jet crash incident - was brought back to Singapore on Sunday. Another SAF serviceman killed in the incident was 3rd Sergeant Isz Sazli Sapari who was accorded a full military funeral on Saturday.
29-year-old Alex Lim who was in a coma after being knocked down by a taxi driver at Scotts Road last month, died at Tan Tock Seng Hospital on Mother's Day. An only son, who was getting married to his fiancee, he never woke up to see his Mom again.
It is so sad when children leave before us. I would definitely be devastated if I lost Jaymes. I have only one son and he's been my driving force all this while. I work hard to raise him and spent sleepless nights worrying over him when he is ill. He is also the precious grandson to his 2 sets of doting grandparents. Losing him now woud be tragic for my family.
I wish all mothers a Happy Mother's Day and may your children bring smiles to your faces everyday!
My Blogger has been crazy since 28th April and it hasn't been able to rectify the problems I'm having. I have left a message on their Bloggers' Help Discussion Group and it was no help. Many bloggers are having these problems too. I can't open my drafts. My readers and I can't comment on certain posts. Jaymes started having these problems yesterday too.
