My JB House

My parents' house in JB was demolished a few weeks ago. The piling and foundation works of the new house is expected to commence soon. The other day I was a little upset when I saw some of the pix posted by my sis in Facebook :( :( The house that I’ve stayed in since I was a few months old baby has turned into this condition...


My sis had also taken quite a number of pix before the demolition of the house. After browsing through the rest of the pix I’ve found one photo of my room. I used to occupy this room previously and we still stay in this room whenever we go back to my parents’ house in the past.


Can you spot the blue study table on the left? Well, my parents bought that for me about 2 decades ago and later on it was handed down to my sis. It’s still in a good condition and now this study table has been given to my cousin.

We went back to have a look at the house when we were in JB during CNY. The house wasn’t demolished yet at that time but it was in a mess and most of the things were already removed. We brought Sharlene along. She was also sadden by the state of the house and had asked me tons of questions such as - what happened to po-po’s house? Why are all the rooms empty? where are the sofa, table, chairs, bed, etc...

She’s rather emotional on that day too and the pixs below will show how sad she was. No kidding, these were really her expressions when she went inside the almost empty house.

Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.

Best regards, Lee.

Sharlene really looked so sad with the condition.
Dont worry, when the new renovated house is done, bring her back again and let her feel the joy.
