Let me tell you a story..

When my family were away to study in uk at my very young age,
my grandparents took care of me in Brunei. 
As a result, I got really attached to my mum's side of the family and kept on staying over at their place in Jerudong.  

 I used to follow my grandparents everywhere and listened to their stories. 
My grandfather had a lot of things to tell about his life. They were always so interesting.  I especially love listening to his childhood stories, life was really hard during his time. 

Back then, my world seemed to be timeless. 
At times I would spent all day sitting on my grandparent's verandah.. 
and stare into the distant field. 

And then I started to daydream....
that I would be there, walking through that long grass field.

Then I saw a boy.
It was my grandfather, as a child

  I went back in time...

And so I approached him.

We became best of friends. 
I showed him the latest gadgets I had, and he was so amazed. 
That time there were no such things.   
At the end of the day, I told him that, 
"Im actually your granddaughter who came from the future!
One day you will become an amazing grandfather!"

I don't remember what was his reaction. 

But one thing for sure, I knew it was something I longed for. 
I loved my grandfather so much to the point I wished we were the same age.
I would imagine about our meeting over and over again. 

Til now...
Everytime I look at the distant field, I would still remember. if it really happened in the past. 
My grandfather, Haji Noorkhan... 
passed away yesterday morning.
I am devastated cause I am here in Aberdeen :'( But it is his time to go.
Semoga Allah mencucuri rahmat keatas roh Nini. Amin. 
I looked into the sky and remember all the great memories..
Funny enough, the grass field was the first thing that popped up in my mind.

I love you always Nini Jerudong.

I know how you feel, my grandfather passed away while I was in the US... so we kind of went through the same kind of experience with regards to loss of our grandfathers...

may his life be blessed in the hereafter... ameen
