Call 289 : TWO PETERS

Hello Son,                                       (continue from Call 288)

Saturday, Oct 22

Mom got up early this morning at about 6 am. 

She went straight to the computer. 

She typed out the lyrics (2nd verse) of IF I DIE YOUNG on Call 288. 

She was still very overwhelmed by the rainbow You sent on your 21st month on Friday ... Seriously, it's just so awesome to know that You're assuring your mother You are safe with the Lord Jesus. :D

How cute is that???

Lord, make me a rainbow

I'll shine down on my mother

She'll know I'm safe with You

As she stands under my colors

This verse is by far your mother's favourite. Mom knows You have something to do with those lyrics. You must have whispered to the song-writer to add those lines. Such a specific message for your mother. :D

At about 9:30 am, Dad said to get ready. We were supposed to go to China Press to put in an ad for kindergarten staff in the Chinese papers. Mom saved her draft, and went to the room to change.

We were soon in the car. 

Barely 5 minutes in the car, Mom gave a sudden yelp. 

Would You believe it but ...

If I Die Young came on the radio!!!

OMG ... 

Are You kidding???

What are the chances???


It was 9:53am.

Mom was all hyper as she excitedly told Dad that this morning, the first thing she wrote on the call-blog (after Hello Son) were the lyrics to IF I DIE YOUNG. 

" ... The Lord - make - me - a - rainbow verse ... I wrote that this morning ..." Mom said almost breathlessly.

OMG ...

"He's talking to me ... I'm telling You, he's talking to me ... He knows I wrote that line ... He's talking to me ... OMG ... I can't believe it ..."

It was merely a preview, so after the first two lines, another song came on. Mom was like, totally on cloud nine. You really are with Mom, aren't You? It was unbelievable. 

Dad stopped by the bank. He parked the car by the side of the road, turned off the engine before getting out of the car. 

Mom stayed in the car.

You must have seen your mother reaching over to turn the car engine on again. Are you kidding? She's not gonna miss the song, now that she's just heard the preview. Shortly after, a big smile appeared on her face as she heard the familiar ...

If I die young

Bury me in satin

Lay me down on a bed of roses

Sink me in the river at dawn

Send me away with the 

words of a love song

Good thing Mom was alone in the car. She was able to sing to her heart's content. Yeah, loud enough to reach all the way to heaven. :D Were You shaking your head? :D

Dad came back to the car. The song was still on, though coming to an end. 

We went back to pick up Justine for breakfast. She wasn't ready earlier when we left. In the car, Jus said she wanted to have toast. Mom would have also liked to be in an air-conned cafe. However, Dad said today, we'll have noodles at the coffee shop. 

No air-con.

Hot coffee shop.

Grumble Grumble Grumble ...

As we were walking to the coffee shop, we bumped into Uncle Peter.

The undertaker.

The guy who prepared You, dressed You up and got You ready to meet Jesus and Mary and all the angels in heaven at your departure date. :(


Quickly, Mom pulled out her cellphone to check the time. 

It was 10:26 am.

After the Hi - How are you - Take care greeting, Peter waved and left. Mom said to Dad, "We just heard IF I DIE YOUNG, and now we see Peter? OMG ... Daniel must have whispered to you, go to the hot coffee shop, Dad ..."

Yeah Yeah ... all because Mom needs to have TWO zaps. :D

Chuckle ...

Thanks for that Son ... :D

After our food, we drove back to drop Justine back. Dad said he left his handphone at home. Dad was driving, so he asked Mom to go up to the condo to get the phone. 

Mom said no. 

She wanted to stay in the car.

She didn't know why then. 

She avoided eye contact, when she blurted out some lame excuse about her joint pains that had suddenly come on. 

Dad didn't buy it.

So anyway, Dad went up to the condo.

No sooner had he left the car, the song COUNT ON ME came on the radio. Ah, she knew it. There was a reason why she had wanted to remain in the car. Mom took a quick glance at the time on the dashboard.

Oh My ...

It was 11:11 am ...

Her angel sign. Her Son's right beside her, she can tell. Once again, Mom was alone in the car. 

Woah Son, are we having a Karaoke session today?

Dad came back to the car. The song was coming to an end.

Mom said, "You see? Son wanted me to stay in the car. He had a song for me ..." :D

Now that, Dad bought. 


We drove to China Press to place the ad. 

After that, Dad said he had to deliver a package to a Peter in Bangsar (different guy).

W-what did Dad say?


Another Peter?

A second Peter?

Two Peters???

TWO Peters today???

Oh My ...

What a coinciDANs ...

When we arrived at the doorstep of Peter's place, Mom pointed out the time. It was 12:04 pm. But of course ... 

What other perfect time could there be?

Dad and Mom went to the book shop after that and spent some time there.

At about 1 pm, we met up with Aunty H for a cuppa tea. 

We dropped Aunty H back to her place an hour and a half later. On the way home, would You believe it but NOBODY came on the radio.

Mom just had to smile. It has been quite a while since she last heard the song.

I want nobody, nobody but chiu ...

Yeah Son ... The inciDANs today ...

It was nobody, nobody but YOU ...

Wink Wink  ...
