Did you think I forgot? What on earth is she talking about? I’m a little embarrassed to admit, but there have been a number of times I said I would post something on this blog, but it never happens. Forgetfulness, ADD, whatever may be the cause, I want to make things right and follow up with all the promises I once made on this blog.

Arpor’s 90th Birthday


My favorite memories of my maternal grandmother (Arpor) revolve around her birthday. I seem to always visit Thailand in the summertime when it just can’t get any hotter, and about once a decade, we celebrate Arpor’s birthday in a big way with a family reunion. I don’t know what your family reunions are like, or if you even enjoy them, but these reunions have always been a real treat for me. We feast on great food, and Arpor sits back as we perform endless acts of music* and dancing for our beloved grandma.

Over the weekend, I attended the wake of our Poh-Poh, Ing-Fen Hsu Jeng, who died January 15, 2011 at the age of 85. Technically she’s my husband’s sister‘s husband’s Poh-Poh (maternal grandmother), but I’m calling her Poh-Poh because she was a woman who loved everybody as her own family. I didn’t know Poh-Poh terribly well, but I see and know the fruits of her love through her family. I’m thankful I had the chance to attend her and Gong-Gong’s 60th wedding anniversary a few years back, and it was the sweetest celebration to join in, especially as a newlywed at the time.
