A day of many stories 许多故事的一天

Received a call in the morning. A 1 1/2 year old toddler drank by mistake weedkiller bought by her parents. She was in critical condition.... tragic incident caused by the carelessness of parents.

As usual, caught in the notorious Federal Highway - AngkasaPuri traffic jam. Life is jam jam here, jam jam there... jam here jam there... but must go on, to live.

Heaped a sigh of relief while "parking" myself onto office chair. My office is not a great place, but sure is my peaceful enclave after an hour's drive.

Sr. Theresa called at about 12:15pm.

"Sister, I have visitors, will call you back...."

Philip and Jasmine were at my office.

The thunderstorm on Monday evening damaged the factory's electronic weighing monitor and CCTV system. Philip was here to check on the system for repair/replacement assessment to be submitted to insurance company.


Jasmine (above) is my supplier, she dropped in for a business visit.

Philip left for another appointment. Jasmine and I talked about surveillance system... insurance .... and life !

Then Jasmine shared on her life story...... a miracle story!

Jasmine was very ill one day when she was 16. She was diagnosed with acute Leukemia and transferred from Bukit Mertajam to University Hospital in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

For a month, her temperature hovering around 42 degree Celsius.... liver punctured, whole body blotted... and was kept in the ICU. Her mother, brother and sister, were by her side 24 hours a day, praying for divine blessings. They were members of Soka Gakkai (a Japanese branch of Buddhism). Doctor said she might not be able to go back to school even though if she pulled through.

During the ordeal, her breathing once stopped and she died-ed ! Miraculously, she was revived and lived.... Doctor made a life and death decision with the consent of her family, to go for chemo treatment. She survived and lived .... regained her health, continued her study after one year of resting.... to university, to work and married. Life moved on .....

Wow..what a story... (she told it in a more moving way ). A miracle is sitting in front of me today.... called for a celebration. I gave her a treat of Sg Buloh fish head curry (left), but she insisted to foot the bill.

Back to my office after lunch.

" Sister, sorry for returning your call late...!"

" I got work for you.."

"oooohh,what work?"

"can you be an interpreter (English to Chinese) at the Marian Congress on May 15 & 16..., they need many for the sessions"

"I knew about the congress...and as a legionary, I am supposed to attend too. But I have to attend my daughter...ooops..my god-daughter's wedding in Kota Kinabalu on the same weekend ... (it was booked almost a year ago) . so ...."

Sister, sorry lah, you kaki gao dim lo!

A SMS came ...telling me that the 1 1/2 year old toddler had pull through the critical period ....

I also manged to get through Anderson and was informed that his son Fabian's corrective procedure on his hip bone at Kuala Lumpur Hospital yesterday was successfully.

OOh, what a day ...!

In the evening, I offered all my intentions at the Mass and Way of the Cross...

God, please bless the toddler and Fabian speedy recovery..... continue to bless Jasmine good health and happy life. May her courageous and extraordinary life saga inspire many to live life with hope and gratitude.

God bless us all!

一早就接到一个电话。一名一岁半的女孩童,早上起来,误饮了她父母所买的杀草药,严重中毒,进入医院急救,情况危急。。。这是一宗因父母疏忽而造成的悲剧。

上班路上,又是如常是塞车。生活就是如此,这里塞,那里塞,到处都塞,但还得前进。

经过了一个小时的驾驶,终于到了办公室。如释重担的做在办公椅上,松了一口气。办公室虽然是简陋,但却是我的平静小天地。

大约中午十二时十五分,莉娜修女来了电话。

“修女,对不起,我有访客,迟些我会给你回电。。”

我的访客是菲力(Philip)及李洁敏(Jasmin)。

在星期一傍晚一场暴风雨中,雷电对我工厂里的电子重量仪器及中央监视系统,造成损害。菲力是到来检查,准备修理/更换的报告,以提呈给保险公司。


洁敏(上图)是供应商,她是到来洽谈生意。

菲力完成检查后,因还有事先离开。我和洁敏则继续闲聊,谈到监控系统,谈到保险,谈到人生。。。

洁敏分享了她的故事,一个奇迹!

在她十六岁时的某一天,她突然身体极度的不舒服。经医生检查之后,确定是一种严重的血癌!因她家乡大山脚的医院缺乏医药的设备,而被转送到八打灵的马大医院,进入紧急护理室,接受治疗。

几乎整个月,她的体温高到摄氏42度,肝脏损坏,身体臃肿,非常的危险。她的妈妈,哥哥及姐姐二十四小时陪伴,诚心的为她祈祷(她们都是虔诚的日本派佛教徒)。医生也警告说,就算她度过这难关,但有可能不能够再到回学校去了。

在挣扎的过程里,她的呼吸曾经停止。。。断气。。死了!但她却奇迹般的被救了回来!医生在她家人的允许下,为她做了一个生/死的决定,就是继续的给她化疗。

她战胜了!奇迹般的她康复了。。。经过一年的修养后,继续她的学业,进入大学,工作,及结婚。。。过着健康正常的生活。

一个奇迹就活现在我的面前。。当然要庆祝了。我请洁敏去吃这里出名的咖里鱼头,但她坚持付账。

午餐后,回到办公室。

“修女,对不起,迟了给你回电。。”

“我有工作交给你。。。”

“哦哦哦。。什么工作?”

“你是否可以在五月十五/十六日举办的圣母大会上,做翻译的工作(英文到华文)。。。他们需要几位。。。”

“我有听过这个大会。身为圣母军团员,我本应该参加,但那个周末,我要去沙巴亚庇参加我女儿。。是哎呀女儿的婚礼。那是一年前就定下的。。。”

修女,真对不起,嗦利啦,你自己保重了。。。!

一个短讯来了。。。告诉我,那为喝了除草剂的小孩,已经度过了危险期。。。

我也顺利的联络上安德森,得知他的儿子费比安,昨天在吉隆坡中央医院所做的大腿及盘骨的矫正手术顺利完成。。。

哗,这么多事故及故事的一天。。。!

傍晚时候,参加了弥撒及拜苦路,把心中的意向,全部奉上给天主。

祈求天主保佑及祝福那小女孩及费比安快速复原。。。。 祈求天主继续降福及保佑洁敏,继续享受健康,快乐的生活,也祈望她的勇敢及生命的战斗,能够鼓励许多同样不幸的人,活的更有希望和感恩。

天主保佑我们大家!

人生就好象交通,常常都会有塞车。。有时要在夹缝里喘息
