Lunch with grandmama

I actually didn’t plan on going to PJ to have lunch.  Was going to buy something from Giant after the Sunday farmer’s market.  Got there at 10:30 and couldn’t find any decent parking so just left.  On the way home, grandmama called me and suggested  having lunch with her b/c she bought lots of things for the kids from Singapore.  I readily said yes.  We went to Jaya to get some takeout when I got to PJ. 

She said when she touched down in SG, she was very emotional.  She usually goes to SG with Kong Kong(grandfather).  Luckily dh’s 2 bros were with her.  It’s been almost 4 months since KK passed away and this is the 1st attempt for her to really go anywhere besides Malacca.  She wanted to so some banking in person and meet up with CS to go over some paperwork b/f  it goes into probate.  The 3 of them stayed at the Phoenix Hotel.  It was a very nostalgic trip for her.  She usually stays at the Phoenix Hotel with KK whenever they go to SG.  OCBC bank has a big stakeon the hotel and KK gets a special rate b/c of his connection with the bank.  She said everywhere she went, the places reminded her of KK.  I can imagined how she must have felt.  They were together for 50 years.  KK used to make frequent trips to SG for his board meetings and usually she tagged along.  I’m glad she made this trip to SG.  She was just existing the 1st 2 months after KK’s funeral.  Lilius has asked her to go to England and stay for awhile and she said she’s not ready yet.  She wants to slowly grieve and get over living without KK.
