Konchwah(Hi), my LJ friends !  : )
It's been a while since I last got myself connected to this LiveJournal but finally . . . I'm here at last ! *waves* Well, I HAVE been SO VERY busy studying and all and er . . . there's so much going on, you know - like taking Excel, Word, Notes and Outlook classes and some private PowerPoint lessons, etc. *fans self* But at least I'm more comfortable using those softwares right now so it'll good on my CV when I apply for a job next time. And that's something I should be glad about, I think !!  : D

But . . . there ARE some bad news as well. Our precious cat "Jeremy" aged 16 years old, passed away peacefully at home in Kobe, Japan on 6th March, 2010 and will be greatly missed by his family.  T_T

He had been a member of our family ever since I was just a school girl and was always here with us, spreading cheers and happiness in our household, but . . . about three months ago, he was just . . . "gone" after several months of suffering from chronic kidney disease. Oh . . . he fought so hard to survive but he was kind of old anyway and was just getting weaker and weaker everyday. Um, in the end, as if he somehow knew that going on like this would only prolong the pain and agony we were all feeling and that all that medicine he had to take through tubes at Doc's twice a day would only cost his family ("us") a lot of money, just gave up and refused to eat or drink anything. *sighs*

The only thing that eased my mind was that our Doc had told us that our Jerry was not really feeling any pain but "drowsiness" as if  taking some sleeping stuff because of his body temperature dropping. ( Oh, it was also a good thing that shortly before the time came, he finally managed to drink a little bit of clean water, looking truly happy. ) And . . . as if falling asleep, he became very silent and eventually, just stopped breathing and went up to heaven. BUT . . . he was so brave right up until the end, you know. And I'm so proud of him, even today.

Truth be told, it took me THREE WHOLE DAYS to get over the loss of our beloved Jerry who was SO dear to us. Uh . . . my Mum, Dad and my brother got over it much earlier than I did but I had been having *frowns* um . . . "a lot of guilt" over the death of Jerry that there SHOULD have been some more other things I could have done to save his life.

And THIS is why I had been away from my own livejournal for so long or even just getting online on my home PC. Enjoying myself was the last thing I wanted to do after Jerry was gone, really. But now I can believe that Jerry is somewhere up in heaven right now, feeling extremely happy and healthy and that he has just been reunited with my grandparents on my father's side who had been away for years !  : )

*hugs "you all" and . . . "my Jerry" who's currently residing up there in heaven*
