Like i’ve always said, we are definitely blessed with so many good online friends… and Barb is a long time friend of mine.. who gives unconditionally – not only gifts of food but gifts of kindness and understanding.  Gift of encouragement and a gift to say nothing .. but lent a listening ear – these gifts of hers is priceless.

A month and a half ago, Barb sent thru’ her brother in law who was home visiting ..  a huge package – thanks to the brother-in-law (Michael)  .. for his willingness to carry it all the way back from Malaysia.

We waited for Chloe to come back from school to let her open it because it was under her name.  We are trying to train Chloe about respecting ppl’s space and privacy.  She was so excited to receive any packages.. and we are grateful for them.

    Unrelated to this post: Hi MB and other viewers of Off Pedder, just heard this news this morning on the radio on my way to work – Veteran Hong Kong actor Chan Hung Lit dies?. I didn’t know who is this, until i checked the news on web. I think he’s the actor of the BIG BOSS in OFF PEDDER, “Yim Hei” :( Sigh, life is so unpredictable. A min ago he’s still acting, and then suddenly heart attack and left this world. Just to let u all know la.

    p/s: Side note, I wonder what would happen to the story of the series.

    I also heard the sad new today too. They said he died of sudden chest pains and fell into a coma while waiting to tape an episode of “Off Pedder” in TVB City. He was transported by ambulance to the emergency ward of Tseung Kwan O Hospital, where he died at the age of 66. We all will miss him dearly. :(

    ah, so many ppl watching Off Pedder also ah. I din know, coz most of my frens dun follow that series.. and i tot it was only me watching it in this community here. Ya, wonder whether they’ll change the original story due to this.
