Early Cheng Beng

Went for Cheng Beng one week early. The actual day is next weekend but it coincides with my convocation. Yup I finally finished my Degree in Applied Rehab with Teeside University, UK. I took year extra (extension) due to the reason I was pregnant with my 4th child when I started and was on my 2nd week confinement whenI had to finish my last dissertation project. Since it was very taxing for me to work and breastfeeding that time ..i extended 1 year and now I finally graduating on 5 April 2008.Must admit not easy but I did it. I've always wanted to be a role model to all my kids especially my 8yr+ twin boys. I want them to knw if mummy can still study after part of her brains have degenerated(after leaving college so long), they should be able to study better. I always tell them if they want a good life in future, they must study smart and learn hard.

As for Cheng Beng..we didnt have to go to the graveyard. Just prayed at the Kek Lok Seah temple where most of my ancestors and deceased relatives' memorial plaques are. Also went to Bercham Crematorium to offer prayers to my dad in law.

Mayb because it's one week early..i find not much crowd at the time we were there.
