Shi Ngeok Lian

I’ve never mentioned this before but one of the people behind Mimpi Murni is my Popo (grandmother), Shi Ngeok Lian. This kind & generous soul who has always been a big part of my life passed away peacefully this morning. Already, everyone in the family misses her so much but we know she’s in a better place.

I’m going to halt the scheduled blogposts & orders for awhile till I get my bearings. I didn’t have time to stop this morning’s post amidst rushing to see my grandmother. Anyways, I hope you lovely folks can bear with me for a bit… I promise I won’t be long.

Oh, and thanks to everyone who emailed & twitted me earlier with your condolences. It truly means a lot.

I will never get to serve her tea as she has always wanted but I hope she’s happy to know
that I’m getting married soon.
