October is my birthday month.
This is going to be the first birthday without my Grandpa and Grandma. There is still this lingering emptiness that i could not quite overcome. Grandma was hospitalised during this time of last year even so she kept reminding herself to remember to give me a red packet for my birthday. This used to be a birthday tradition in our family for decades and that red packet was the last one from her.
This is going to be the first of such birthday and more to come.
