End of a great chapter

Dear all,

As a blog custodian, I received news from Vivian (Hee Boon's sister) that Hee Boon passed away peacefully at 1.50 am this morning.

I'm sure he has touched the hearts of many and Vivian would like to thank all who have given encouragement and love during this 'new adventure' of his. He will definitely be missed by many.

As what he had shared with us through his blog, we must 'make meaning' out of the event. (For those who read his blogs, he wrote a subject on 'making meaning' on May 22nd 2005). He viewed the newly discovered cancer as a 'gift' and chose what he wanted to do with it and touched many hearts. In the same spirit, we should also make meaning out of his great adventure and choose what we want to do with it. Personally, his adventure simply means 'the greatest adventure ever told' and shall be shared as my best example when I discuss with people on encouragement and power of mind.

For the funeral, you can pay your last respect to him at:

1161, Jalan Rasah,
Negeri Sembilan

Vivan's number : 6 0162191938 or 6 06 7630950

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Back home. But still very very weak. Need rest before I can blog about my more than a month sojourn at NCI. Even typing this is a chore. Bear with me. I am taking each moment as it comes...
