I had the chance to met Asther's dad for first time, 2-3 years ago, when he briefly made a trip to KL. And then, another time several months later for dinner with Asther's family. He was a amusing man, who dabbled into politics-talk and insurance. I really enjoyed the few times we had chatting. I guess it's also novelty for me to talk to someone from Kuching. I don't know many people from East Malaysia, so I do relish getting a perspective of life over there. As events transpired, I was saddened when he suffered a stroke end of last year. I was more saddened when I learned of Uncle Lau's passing last Saturday.
I now take the remnants of the day to convey my deepest condolences to you, Asther Lau and family.
My thoughts are with you and your loved ones during this time of loss.
