Call 382 : NOSE BLEED

Hello Son,

Saturday, June 23

This Saturday morning, we went to your garden.

Mom was up as early as 7 am.

She found herself calling You on Call 380 : 29th Month.

She had just related about the bakery inciDAN and the mistake she made, when Dad said it was time to go. She saved her draft and only got back to it in the afternoon.

We drove to town to get your everlasting flowers before going to the garden. Justine came with us. Your sister has just finished her exams the day before on Friday 22nd.

So anyway, on the way to town, this vehicle appeared in front of us.

Mom noticed it instantly and couldn't help but exclaim, "Omg, 2040 ..."

See Call 380 : 29th Month.

Mom said, "I just told him about the mistake I made that day at the bakery ... that zap number was supposed to be 2040 and not 2140 ... Omg, what are the chances of seeing this car? He's talking to me ... He knows we are going to his garden ...Can you see?"

It's 2040, Ma ... :D

Your birthdate ...

Mom checked the time the photo was taken at the time of writing.

9:31 am

Decode : 4

Helloooo ...

That is easy ...

That was definitely YOU sending Mom that car.

You're with us, she could tell. :D

Shortly after, another vehicle appeared in front of our car.

Oh, this is too easy. :D Would You just look at all her eviDANS?

Hi Ma, I'm right here ... <3

Mom heard You.

Loud and clear. :D

A bright smile appeared on her face.

Of course You would be with your family. We were going to your garden. Justine was with us this month. The previous few times, she was unable to go because of school exams.

We reached town.

Dad dropped Justine and Mom at one of the stores to get the flowers, whilst he waited in the car by the roadside.

Justine picked lovely purple flowers.

We went back to the car come 20 minutes later.

Dad was listening to some songs he had downloaded onto his cellphone the night before.

Justine and Mom got into the car.

Dad said, "Listen to this ..."

He connected the cellphone to the car speakers before handing Mom the cell so she and your sister could view the music video.

The first few seconds were rather boring ... until she suddenly thought she heard a whisper calling your name, Daniel ...

Mom turned to Justine, "Did you hear that? Dahhh-nielll ..."

Your sister said yes. Dad heard it too.

Omg ...

Mom asked incredulously, "Did you know about that?"

Dad said no, he didn't hear it before on the cellphone. It was probably too soft.

Mom turned up the volume

Gee, did the singer really said DANIEL, or is this a mandarin word that sounds like your name?

Omg ... What are the chances?

The song started ...

Ohhhh ... this song issit ...

Justine said, "Daniel knows this song ..."

Mom pondered on that.

Yes, You probably would. Dad said it's an old song.

Then came a part on the music video where the girl suffered a nose bleed.

Dad commented grimly, "Nose bleed ... He had nose bleeds ..."

Mom said solemnly, "He had the first one in the bath tub ... I was with him ... and that last one, in the hospital..." (that last visit to the hospital, about two weeks before You left us)

Mom still remembers alerting the night nurse in the middle of the night, that blood was flowing from your nose. You were sleeping peacefully at the time. Your mother remembers the nurse rushing out of your room, and calling out into the corridor, "Kak, Kak, ambil ice pack ... cepat ... Hidung Daniel berdarah ..."

(Sister, get an ice pack ... quick ... Daniel's nose is bleeding ...)

You slept throughout the whole commotion, and did not stir for one second, when the nurses fussed over You in an urgent attempt to stop the bleeding. Mom had watched on helplessly, as You slip yet a little further away from the already alarming distance between You and and your family.

Your mother's vision blurred momentarily as memories flooded in.

Dad said he cried whilst viewing the video just now (when Justine and Mom were getting your flowers). Mom turned to look at him and yes, it was only then did she notice that your father's eyes were rather wet and reddish. :(

The song came to an end ... and Omg, guess what?

There were a second whisper calling your name, Daniel.

We all heard that. Omg, twice. That was definitely to make sure Mom knows it's YOU, nobody, nobody but YOU. Gosh, what are the chances. A million and one names out there available to this songwriter / video producer and they had to pick yours???

And this ... this we had to listen to on the way to your garden???

Gosh Daniel, how much more dramatic can this get?

Are You taking Drama lessons up there?

The moment was too much for Mom to bear and soon tears were spilling freely over her face.

We reached the garden. 

Oh, the mood was sad and quiet that day. Justine was in the car for a few minutes after we arrived, checking on something on her cell. She appeared later and sat opposite Mom on your garden, with tears in her eyes. She had been reading the English translation of the Mandarin song, and was sobbing away when she told Mom.

Mom took the cellphone and started reading the lines ...


(English Translation)

I've forgotten how long it's been
Since I last heard you
Tell me your favourite fairytale
I've thought for a very long time
I'm starting to get worried
Have I done something wrong again?

You told me with tears in your eyes
That fairy tales are all lies
There's no way I can be your prince charming
Perhaps you don't understand
Since you said you loved me
The stars in my sky started to twinkle

I'm willing to be
The angel you love in the fairytale
I'll open my arms wide
And turn them into wings to protect you
You must believe
Believe that we will be like the fairytale
With happy ever after as the ending

Together we'll write our own ending

Your mother was bawling her eyes out. 

You must have shook your head when You saw that. 

She passed the cell to Dad. Dad began to read the lyrics.

After reading, Dad remarked, "Believe ... His I BELIEVE video ..."

Oh yes, yes, your I BELIEVE video.

Note the 2 words angel and believe in the lyrics above.

I BELIEVE lyrics

Lonely, the path You have chosen
A restless road, no turning back
One day You will find your light again
Don't You know
Don't let go, be strong

Follow your heart

Let your love lead through the darkness
Back to a place You once knew
I believe, I believe, I believe in You

Follow your dreams
Be yourself, an angel of kindness
There's nothing that you cannot do
I believe, I believe, I believe in You

Gosh, do You see what she sees? Do You see the connection?

The same 2 zap words, angel and believe, appear in this video of yours.


After saying the rosary, we went back home. Approaching the condo, Dad happened to click on a mandarin video which made him chuckled. Mom noticed that immediately. You wouldn't let us all go home in that sad mood. You would cheer us up and made sure we were out of that sombre mood we were in this morning.

Yes, that's You, Daniel ... Mom recognized that instantly.

You always knew how to cheer us all up. Dad was laughing and Justine was chuckling. It was a funny song. Mom's heart lightened when she saw that. You were / are near. She could tell. And that made her happy.

See how easy it is to make your mother happy, Son? :D

Just at that moment, Mom noticed the number plate of the vehicle in front of us. You must have whispered to her.

See the sign, Ma ... I'm right here ... <3

That sure felt good, Daniel ... the perfect angel timing once again. It was as if You were with us in conversation. Honestly ... it's difficult to explain.

Eres Tu ... :D

Oh, by the way ... Mom told Dad that from now on, should there be instances where we are not able to find the words for, we'd just say ERES TU ...


So anyway ...

When we came back home, Mom went to the computer to check out the TONG HUA video again. That's the title of the video that whispered your name twice ... beginning and ending of the video. Just to make sure that we would be thinking of You from start to end of video.

The whispered word is clear to her ... very clear.

Gawd, it sounded like DANIEL ...

It could only be DANIEL ...

Gee, why ... it ISSSSS DANIEL ...

What have You got to say about this, Son?

Mom found herself checking the time the name is whispered and found that the first one is at 0:24 and whilst the second, at 5:50.

0:24?    Ah, your birthdate.

5:50? (scratch your head, please ...)

Hmmm ... No connection whatsoever. Nowhere close to your angel number. That bothered your mother a bit, to be honest.

Where's the connection? 

It wasn't until later, when your family, including Grandma and Aunty C, drove to the nearby mall for dinner, when the connection became apparent. :D It was the moment upon entering the underground car park, when we saw the lighted number of available parking bays on the overhead digital board showing :

X                Y

50       |     500

Dad in fact said aloud, "50 and 500 ... enough parking bays for you?"

Mom pounced on that, "Omg ... that's 550 ..."

She didn't bother to explain. It would take too long. 

Mom had a big smile on her face, only YOU would know why.

Omg ... how You surprise your mother time and again is beyond her.

(video removed)

(Sun Oct 21, 2012 : Just checked the video and found out that it has been removed. Darn. Here's another video, but this one does not have the whispered name at the end, only in front ... at 0:24... your birthday)

At the time of uploading the above video, Mom made a quick check on Wikipedia on Michael Wong to check on the background details of the video ... in particular the reason why there is that whispered DAHHH-NIELLLL at the beginning and at the ending of the video. Can You blame your mother for suddenly having that obsession to find out why?

Omg ... You're so not gonna believe this ...

The first sentence on the singer on the Wikipedia page MADE HER GASPED!!!

Mom jumped out of her seat and literally ran to the bathroom, pounded on the door urgently, to tell Dad.

Dad opened the door quickly and Mom told him.

Omg ... what are the chances???

What does this mean???

Dad's eyes magnified before her.

Omg ...

The Wikipedia Link :

The zap line reads as follows :

"Fairy tale (Tong Hua) is the third solo album by Malaysian singer Michael Wong, released on 21 January 2005."


Gasp !!!

Did You hear that???

January 21???

Omg ...

January 21 ... being the date JESUS came to take You home.

Omg ...

Exactly how are You expecting Mom to react to this?

365 days in a year ... and of all the days this album could have been released, it had to be a date that was connected to You ...

Omg ...

Omg ...

Omg ...

Not only that, but the duration of the video is 7:37.

Oh gosh, Son ...

Eres Tu ...
