She is now a mother of 3 children residing in Limbang, Sarawak.
Two weeks ago, I received an email: "Uncle Simon, I am already in UUM (University Utara Malaysia in Kedah) for month long study of my Masters programe ending 13/12. I will be in KL on 14/12 morning...."
Hahaha... what do you think who she is? She was studying in UKM fifteen years ago and attended Mass in Holy Family Church. That was how I came to know her.
I offered to fetch her from the airport and spend half a day in Kajang before she flies home on an evening flight.
After the Everfit Yoga Studio anniversary celebrations, I went to the airport.
With her was her course-mate Susan from Kuching. We managed to attend the 10:30 am Chinese Mass. It was their first time to our new church which was opened in 2001
She also visited Fr. Leo Chang who was the Parish Priest during Agatha's student years in UKM.
Before going to airport, we have, what else? Satey!!
It was raining heavily and we barely made it to the airport less than an hour before the closing of the check in counter for Susan's 5:00 pm flight to Kuching. (AirAsia counter closes 45 minutes before flight).
To make matter worse, due to renovation, they closed the Car Park entrance causing traffic jam. When I dropped them at the Departure entrance, it was less than 40 minutes before flight. Agatha, Susan and my wife rushed in with the luggage. I waited in car a distant away...
I prayed:...Hail Mary, Full of Grace, help Susan get her place.... Hail Mary, Full of Grace, help Susan get her place.... Hail Mary, Full of Grace, help Susan get her place.....
Almost five minutes later, my wife called: " OK, Susan was the last passenger to check in..."
And Agatha has no problem for her 7:00pm flight to Miri.
Thank you my Mother.
约在两个星期前，我收到了一通电邮：“Uncle Simon, 我现在在北方大学（吉打州），参加为期一个月的硕士文凭的一些课程，到13/12 结束。我将会在14/12 早上到达吉隆坡。。。。”
在参加了瑜伽中心十周年庆祝之后，我到机场迎接她。和她一同到来的是她的同课程同学，来自古晋的 Susan 。
过后，我带他们探访了病危的张神父。张神父是 Agatha 读书的时候，加影圣家堂的本堂神父，与她很熟络。
Agatha, Susan 及太太马上拿了行李，冲向登记手续柜台，我则留在车内等候。
我心中一阵惊慌，马上祈祷：“万福玛丽亚，你充满圣宠，求你帮助 Susan 拿到她的位。。。。。” ；“万福玛丽亚，你充满圣宠，求你帮助 Susan 拿到她的位。。。。。”; “万福玛丽亚，你充满圣宠，求你帮助 Susan 拿到她的位。。。。。”
大约五分钟之后，接到太太的电话：“一切OK, Susan 是最后一个登记乘客！”
