Just like that ...

Some poor gentlemen just collapsed and died outside Dunkin' Donuts here in PBD, opposite my office. Despite some foreigner's best effort to revive the person, and despite the ambulance coming quite quickly, the gentlemen is now laying dead on the pavement, waiting to be picked up by the police.

There's a sizeable crowd around the poor gentlemen, who is now covered with some newspaper, and cordoned off with a few traffic cones.

Condolences to his family.

Life is fragile like that ...

I'm renewing my vow to spend life with vigor and to enjoy all the things I want to do, love all the people who means a lot to me, and to never have to regret not doing anything because I didn't make the time to do it. Time to buy a flash for the camera and start chasing bugs, perhaps. Time to take my dad for a vacation too.

Sometimes, we need a bit of jolt to reiterate the messages that are all around us.

my condolences to his loved ones too.

how fragile life could be... which is why we'd better have a whoop of a time doing that Bondi-Coogee walk!

O.H.M.Y.G.O.D.
Things happen, don't they?
And I'm glad I took the very last-minute step to go home and give my Mum a surprise on her birthday :)

And you're right, we do need to be jolted once in a while :)

laundryamah:
If my dad travel with me ... not likely to work. He has to travel with his bunch of friends ... they all have the same interests.

Perhaps one of these days .... perhaps.
