If I die tomorrow...

"Nothing in life is certain except death and taxes" -- Benjamin Franklin

To that, somebody replied "There is always death and taxes; however, death doesn't get worse every year." -- Unknown

Everyone of us will die. I am sure of it. I will die, just that I dunno when. Maybe 50 years from now, maybe 10. Maybe I will die next month or next week.

Or tomorrow. Who knows?

If I die the very next moment, please ask my parents not to give a Buddhist or Taoist funeral. Kindly remind them to give me a Christian funeral. They should know, but just to be sure. Feel free to cremate my body. I dun think it will hurt anymore. And I dun want to take up any space in our land-precious country. (I think if I was buried, I would be dug out sooner or later anyway.)

All my monetary assets goes to my little brother. He wants to be a businessman, so the extra cash will be very useful to him. My TV, Hi-fi, DVD player, PC and all that shit goes to him also. My guitars and my piano will go to my little sister. She's got some interest in music and I hope that she will develop it further. My Christian books and Bibles and stuff, my friends and the church can have it - dun think anybody in the house will want those things. For my parents? I think those few hundred thousands from my insurance coverage should be enough for them. I suppose photographs and stuff can keep around the house; but as for all the toys and souvenirs that I bought, I think those can be thrown away.

If anybody wants anything from me, in remembrance or otherwise, please let me know early. Or at least before I really die.

The people I will really miss:

My little sister. Definitely the top of the list. Watched her grow from a little baby to the fine young lady that she is now. Always bring a smile to my face, she's my little pride and joy. Hope that she will grow up to be a wonderful woman.

The rest of the family. My brother, my father and my mother. Not the closest people in my life, but they are, nevertheless, my family. And a very large part of my life and who I am. Hope my brother will have a better shot at life than I did, and he will make it in all the things he does. I might as well take this chance to say this (I might not have another chance to say it if I dun say it now): "Mom, Dad, thanks for bringing me up and everything. I know you have given your all. And I am sorry for all the heartaches I have given you."

My close friends and buddies. Debbie, Cindy, Sharon. You girls are like my bestest friends. You have always been there for me when I am down, depressed or lonely. Thanks for the time and effort that you have put into our friendship. I pray that I can meet you all in Heaven in the further, even if it means I have to wait another 80 years. On the guys department, I have Jinlong, Ben, Junsong, Desmond and Kelvin. I have little guy friends (as you guys should already know) so you are really great guys on my lists. Thanks for your friendship also.

And of course, Her.

And special thanks to my spiritual mentor, Mr. Bernard. He taught me everything I ever know about God.

"Dying is our most important act, for which life is a long journey of preparation." -- Henri Nouwen

Am I ready to die? Actually I am not. Do I fear death? Absolutely. Will I die? Of course. Just that I dunno when. But I hope I will be ready when the time comes.

BTW, a lot of the people I mention never read my blog, so when the need arises, please inform them of this entry.
