Call 183 : DANIEL's SONG

Hello Son, 

Thursday, March 31 

This morning, Mom posted an entry on your Facebook with a MISSING YOU Snoopy graphic. 

She ended the message with the line, MISSING YOU, SON

That was at 9:57 am. 

Then, at 12:21 pm, Mom received a text message from Aunty Jessie in the States. Her message read :

"Thia Megia just sang song Daniel and I was just on Dans site n blog awwww ..."

 On the plane to Lourdes in September 2009.
You're wearing the same white jumper-jacket as the one you did 
when you went to see Jesus on January 21, 2010 ... 
4 months later ... <3

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane

I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain

Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye

God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been

Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen

Oh and he should know, he's been there enough

Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much


Daniel my brother you are older than me

Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal

Your eyes have died but you see more than I

Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky


Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane

I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain

Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye

God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

at the Paris airport ...

Her second text @ 12:31pm read :

"I was not expecting to hear from Dans cos i haven't been on his site until now ... and the song came on just as i was reading his inciDANS ... sniff blink blink blink... she happens to be singing to her bro ..."

OMG ...

What a coinciDANS for Aunty Jessie to tell your mother about this song some 2.5 hours later after Mom expressed that she's missing You... 

OMG ...

Dad, Mom and Justine were sitting patiently before the television that evening, waiting for Thia to come on. She finally did. Contestant Number 8

Decode : 44

Her angel sign. 

Call 43 : Angel Sign

Mom found her vision blurred at the end. 

Mom was not aware then but Our Lady's Grotto in Lourdes
would be your preparatory ground for your next role in Heaven.

Maybe You had an idea ...
It was an intense spiritual trip from beginning to end.
Mama Mary extended our stay from 5 to 25 days.

That night, Aunty Diana sent a text message from Tawau. Mom had told her that your song would be on.

"Yall watching american idol?" her message read.

It was 9:45 pm. There would be a repeat.

Mom replied:

"watched d. she's singer no. 8. dans very pandai to pic the singer to deliver his song. young pretty and sassy..."

Aunty Diana texted back:

"yeah, i've seen that girl. she's very cute and the only asian. eh, do u remember seeing a hummer in paris?"

Mom read the message out loud to Dad. 

Dad said, "Yes, we saw a black hummer in Lourdes itself."

Mom asked, "With Daniel?"

at the train station in Paris ...

Dad said, "Yes, we saw it a few times, it was parked by our hotel."

Mom texted Aunty Diana:

"B say there was a black hummer in loots itself. Y?"

What a strange question for your aunty to suddenly ask, out of the blues.

Aunty Diana replied :

"Yaaa, i knew i wasn't imagining it. we were driving back from work n suddenly C said omg, that's a black hummer in front of us. he asked if i know what's that. i said the last time i heard or saw this car was in loots when B said, hey dans, check it out - a hummer!"

Mom smiled as she read her message and replied :

"Dans wanted to zap you and make you think of him." :D

We stopped texting when Idol Thia came on ...

 As a matter of fact, You were wearing this outfit, save for the inner tee, 
to Heaven when You met Jesus and Mama Mary. The same jacket, 
the same pair of jeans and the same track shoes.

Right after the song was over, Mom's phone beeped. 

It was Aunty Diana, of course. 

She said:

"omg, is it just me or was the song really sad? i was teary-eyed ..."

From where You are, Daniel Jason Phua Yun Shih, You would have seen your Aunty Jessie sniffing in the States, Aunty Diana tearing up in Tawau and Mom blinking back her tears at home in KL. 

Lord, I miss Daniel ... Oh, I miss him so much ... :(
