Eid ul-Fitri is a festivity to celebrate the completion of Ramadan in which Muslims are required to fast daily for dawn to sunset for a month long. It’s a big day in Malaysia so Mommy decided in addition to calling the family, we also made a video greeting in Malay. The text was written by her. I just had to read it out but her penmanship was not as legible as I’ve requested. We hope, they still got the essence of it, tho. Hopefully!
My beloved Oma passed away on Monday 18th May 2009 after a complicated operation. Here are some pics, so I would never forget her.
This was when I first met her in May 2005 when they came to visit from Belgium. I was barely 5 months old.
Since they love me so much, they came to visit again in August 2005. and brought w them lots of goodies for me that we thought it was xmas, but what I liked the most was her pendant 😉
Since her health didn’t permit them to visit, we decided to visit them instead on Opa‘s birthday in August 2006.
Right after we came back from Malaysia in Dec 2006, they came to visit for my birthday. It was rather a short visit tho.
When we moved to Freising in 2007 they visited us again. So nice of them to drive such a long distance.
We visited them again between X-mas 2008 and a new year and tht’s the last time we saw her.
You will always be missed by your family Oma. May you rest in peace.
Alles Gute zum Geburtstag Papa![audio:090218-happy-birthday-papa2.mp3]
14 -18th August 2007
Opa and Oma came to visit us. It’s really good to see them again.
On Wednesday, we were invited to Bavaria Park – an entertainment/theme park which isn’t very far from our place. Unfortunately, it was a holiday here in Bavaria, so they had a full house. We didn’t get to do much without being in a very long queue.
After much persuasion from me -read:crying- we did hop onto a few merry-go-rounds and rides.
A train ride w opa.
I loved the ride so much that I dragged Mommy to come with me for the next ride.
Oma and me in the garden at Weinstephan.
The next day we took them around Freising. There isn’t much to see here, so we went to Munich Airport.
I looove riding these and Opa and Oma spoilt me.
On Friday we went to Munich City. First stop was the Residence Museum. There, I met a really nice girl from Spain; or she found me, but we were hooked from then on. Suddenly the visit became so interesting. The girl’s name is Elia (sp). We were having fun running around and cried when we parted. Papa did invite them over, but they didn’t have much time.
On Saturday, opa and oma wanted to have a look at the city again. We have other chores to do, so we met later in the evening. The next day opa and oma went back to Belgium. It was a long ride and mind you my opa isn’t the youngest anymore. He is 74. We are so grateful that they came and hope they had a good time as much as we did.
