|They eat everything, cold & hot 他们冷或热，什么都吃（4/9/2012 JB）|
|At Simpang Pertang Sanctuary (29/8/2012)|
Few days after returning from our Europe holidays, my mother-in-law came to stay with us.
She was coughing badly thus needed medical treatment. My father-in-law came up from Johor Baru to be with us two weeks later.
After medication, the infection was cleared and her cough stopped.
This was the longest period my parents-in-law have been staying with us, and it was quite an enjoyable time we have.
On Monday, September 3, my wife and I drove to send them back to their Johor Baru home.
My mother-in-law is back to herself after coughing for months --- inquisitive and chatty ! (see old post Celebrations)
However, age catches up on her. She is no longer that energetic, memory is receding ... signs of old age has become more obvious ... but thank God, she is healthy, no hypertension, no diabetes, hearth is good, and most important of all, very good appetite!
My father-in-law is a man not very good with words.
Considering being 85 year-old man, he is in great shape. No medical condition, can read newspaper without the aid of reading glass (a little squinting of eyes at times). He will not hesitate to climb a 10 feet ladder up to his roof-level storeroom, hesitating only when our warning to him not to climb flashes across his mind.
He is well-loved by all his children and grandchild. He is very accomodating when in the company of his children and grandchildren.
He asks not many questions, making little demands. He is very sporting .. going along with others even though some activities or places are not his liking .... These good quality is endearing his children and grandchildren.
My parents in law are two different character. My mother-in-law is outgoing, socialable; my father-in-law is introvert and has no many friends.
They clash and argue. However, God said they are meant for each other and has been since stuck with each other for the past 61 years!
When an argument is settled by the children, both of them will say in unison:
" OK lah, I will listen to what your all said lah"
" .... I will say less lah"
" .... I will not interfere lah"
".... I will do as your all said lah"F
But when we are not around, history repeats itself ...
This is life man ! A blessed and blissful life of two simple people who brought up good children and grandchildren, what more you want to ask for?!!

我的岳母在咳嗽了好几个月后，现在痊愈了，当然就会的老样子 - 好谈及好奇（说多多，问多多）。（ 看旧帖子『欢庆』 )
