Call 412 : COFFEE SHOP

Hello Son, 

Late this morning, Dad and Mom were in the car.

We were driving to PJ for some lunch.

At one point, Mom said aloud, "Daniel, where are You? We miss your handsome face ..."

We continued traveling, until we had to stop before a set of red lights.

Mom spotted a huge number 21 on a pillar that was on the right of us.

She pointed eagerly, "Hey, look - 21 ... I wrote about Forever 21 this morning in his blog ..."

Dad nodded.

You certainly got Mom's call, didn't You now?

She continued, "Did we have to stop right in front of this pillar?"

Tsk tsk tsk ... so meant to be ...

Mom did not scramble to take a photo ... which she would regret later ... besides, the car was moving on.

It didn't really feel like a real zap, to be honest.

The doubt was there.

Yeah, the doubt ...

Talk about the faith of a mustard seed, huh.

We drove on, and soon came to another set of traffic lights.

This time, Dad pointed enthusiastically, "Daniel rode that bike ..."

Mom turned to look and at the same time taking out her cellphone to take a photo.

She smiled when she saw the time on her cell. Quickly, she showed Dad the time.

It was 12:12 pm.

Decode : 21 two times

Oh, say no more.

How perfect is this?

Mom commented, "Is that the same bike? It doesn't look like the one he rode ..."

Dad replied, "It's the same model ..."

Your mother paused for just a second before remarking cheerfully, "You heard me call him just a few minutes ago, right? Can you see that he's answering me? Omg, can You see that?"

She cannot remember now what Dad said, because the car stopped at another set of lights ... and right before your parents' eyes was this vehicle.

Mom pointed quickly, "Look ... Look ... Count that ..."

Dad said with a chuckle, "21 ..."


We drove to the coffee shop that we intended to go.

It was closed.

Hai ya ...

Mom suggested another noodle coffee shop.

We drove there ...

As we were turning into the lane, she couldn't help but noticed the number plate of the car in front of her.

1011 ...

Decode : 21

It totally reminded her about the two balloons the boys were holding yesterday at the cafeteria.

See Call 411 : Red Velvet

We soon reached the coffee shop.

At the entrance, we saw the place packed with patrons. One of the waitress came and ushered us to a table right inside the coffee shop.

We followed her ...

Mom did not notice the table number until her drink arrived.

Beaming happily, she pointed to Dad, "Look at the table number ... Son's definitely with us today ..."

21 ... again ...

Gosh, would You believe it?

Everywhere we are, there You'll be ... :D

So anyway, when we were done with lunch, we drove to a friend's house to drop her some skin care products.

After that, we drove home.

A vehicle appeared before us, which made your mother exclaimed aloud, "See that? Omg ..."

Dad replied with a smile, "21 ..."

Oh gosh, what an awesome day we had today, Daniel ... :D

We truly felt your presence the whole time ...

You definitely would have gotten your mother's message in Call 411 where she told You about the Forever 21

It's so obvious ... take a look at all the 21 inciDANS today.

What are the chances???

Thanks Son ... keep the zaps coming, kay ... :D

We miss You so very much ...

Call 411 : RED VELVET

Hello Son,                                               (continue from Call 410)


The two boys said they were hungry.


Can You imagine that? They had just attended a birthday party. Shouldn't there be lots of food?

Mom asked if they wanted to go to McDonald's and both cried out in unison, "Yes Yes Yessss!!!"

We drove to the nearest McD's joint.

In the car, your mother saw that the place was packed and the queue at the counter was rather long. She should be sending the boys back soon. So she suggested that they had their burgers at the cafeteria at our condo ... and by the pool, she'd added. That way, we were closer to the boys' homes.

The boys were excited about the pool as she'd expected ...

We arrived at the condo some 10 minutes later ...

We walked to the cafetaria ...

There was a small crowd of people at the cafe. It turned out there was a birthday celebration for a one year old kid. We walked through the cafe, and out of the other entrance, that led to the pool side, with Mom nodding and giving whoever gave her eye contact a smile, as they walked past the party guests.

We were soon outside the cafe and looking over to the pool.

Would You believe it but Justine was at the far end of the pool with Baby Megan? Did Mom mention that Aunty D is here for the weekend with the baby? How perfect is the timing?

Your sister had yelled out, "Teacher Lynn ... Teacher Lynn ..."

Yeah, Mom has asked her to call her that in front of her students.

Hehe ... :D

Kish was there too, bouncing with excitement and panting away when she saw us approaching.

Whilst the boys were playing with Kish, Mom went back to the cafe to order the burgers. She had specifically asked for tomato sauce for the burgers.

However, when the burgers were served shortly, Mom noticed that the cook had added chilli sauce on the burgers, instead of tomato sauce.

Oh, darn it.

She tried to remove as much as she could by scraping the sauce out of the buns with a knife, but the boys complained that it was "too hot" and "too spicy" ... both panting away like a ... a ... thirsty dog and dramatically gulping down their bottle of water.

Pushing their plates away, they refused to take a second bite of their burgers.

Mom ordered a plate of french fries and at the same time, conveyed her annoyance to the waitress about the sauce mistake. The waitress apologized, but did not offer to ... to ...

Oh, what did she expect the girl to do? Bring over two more sets of burgers with the tomato sauce this time?

Pause ...

Why, actually, yes ... yes, she did ... expect the waitress to at least bring fresh buns to replace the ones tainted with chilli sauce. Now they would still go home hungry ...

Meanwhile, the boys had gotten their hands on a balloon each ... balloons from the birthday party that was held at the cafe. They were helium balloons and were tied down to some of the chairs.

As mom watched them playing, she suddenly realized 21 was staring at her in her face :D





See the 21?

Ah ...

Truly, everywhere Mom is, there You'll be.

You know what happened next?

Well, just as Mom was putting down her cell (after taking the photo), the host of the birthday party (the mother of the birthday boy) came to our table and presented us with a plate of cakes and some cookies.

Pause here for a sec ...

That triggered the inciDAN that happened in the morning at the book store. Just as she had taken the JASON photo, the song came on within minutes ... two minutes to be exact.

Surprised, Mom exclaimed that she (the host) shouldn't have, but thanked her for the cakes.

It was a red velvet cake, she quickly learned the name, with bright blue icing ... apparently made by the host's friend, who was sitting next to our table, some 5 walking steps away from us.

The fries came. The boys ate heartily.

Mom fed them the cake and had some herself.

Oh Wow ... the cake was really yummy and Mom told the host so. 

Hmmm ... she thought to herself as she was munching on the delicious cake.

Did You see what happened there?

21 was looking at her ... and the next thing she knew, a stranger came and presented a plate of cakes.

On hindsight, Mom must repeat again, that after noticing the number 21, and taking a photo, this lady came to our table? Gee, You must have whispered to the lady to bring us some cakes, since the boys were not eating their burgers, and Mom did not want to send them back hungry. Plus, she was still annoyed that the waitress or the cook, did not offer to re-do the burgers.

That was You ...

Mom knows ...

You knew they'd eat the cake, didn't You?

Smile ... :D

After the snack, Mom sent them home ... happily. :D

at the mall

That Saturday evening, about 7 pm, our family went to the mall for dinner.

Aunty D, Aunty C, Justine, Baby Megan and Mom. Dad will be home only at midnight.

That's Justine with Baby Megan, and Aunty D with the stroller, in the photo above.

We went to a Japanese diner.

nose to nose

Baby Megan and Aunty D in the photo above ...

At one point during dinner, would You believe it but mother and child were demonstrating a nose to nose action?

Mom stared.

At first, she was not aware of that zap moment, but had merely looked, because it was too cute.

However Aunty C was like, "Again Megan ... again ... do again ..." as she wanted to take a video.

It was after the again, and again ... and again ... that it suddenly hit her that they were doing the nose to nose thingy.

Gosh, it was heart-warming for her to witness that. You really do know how to make your presence felt, Daniel. That was just incredible, Son ... :D


Nose to nose ...

Oh gosh ...

Chest to chest ...

Nose to nose ...

Chest to Chest, Ma ... :D
(See 405 : Anime Boobs)

She hears her son say.


He's giving her a big hug, she knows.

They did not have to demonstrate this nose to nose action in front of her face.

Think about it ...

Just take a moment and think about it, would You please?

What have You got to say, Daniel?

A moment of silence ... that did nothing but zap, zap, zapped her.

Honestly Son, You say it best when You say nothing at all.

It's amazing how You can speak right to her heart

Without saying a word, You can light up the dark

Try as she may, she can never explain

What she hears when You don't say a thing

Truly ...

Everywhere we are, there You'll be ... :D

Thank You Jesus for the bond between mother and son  ... <3

God's plan is perfect ...

He truly made a way for us, Daniel ... :D

After dinner, Justine and Mom went to the Jusco. Mom wanted to check out the children's wear to see if she could find anything for one of the concert items. Aunty D, Aunty C and Baby Megan went a-walking here and there.

So anyway, at one point, we walked past the KIKO section, and Mom pointed out to your sister, that special corner, telling her that, "This is the place where Daniel tried on the jeans ..." :D

Mom would have told Justine before, but your sister took in the information like she's hearing it for the first time. :D

We walked on to the next section ...

It was barely 10 steps away, when Mom stopped abruptly ... and pointed, with her mouth opened.

She had spotted the name DAN on a tee shirt.

Justine looked, at the same time moving away the price tag to reveal the full word DANCING.

DANcing with your SOUL?


Gosh ... Honestly, what are the chances of stumbling upon a tee shirt that has your name DAN and the word SOUL on it?

No chance ...

Absolutely no chance ...

"He's definitely with us, Jus," Mom said with a smile.

Your sister gave a knowing nod.

Yeah, definitely ...

Definitely ...

Definitely ...

You're with us ... It's so obvious ... :D

About an hour later, Justine said, "Let's go meet the aunties ..."

Yeah, okay ... lets ... and so we slowly made our way to the end of the mall.

As we were walking there, we passed a new boutique that Mom has not seen before.

She stopped in her tracks and said, "Eh Justine, this shop is new ..."

Your sister exclaimed, "Aiyo Ma, how long have you not been here? It's not new la. It's been here for a few weeks already ..."

Really? What shop is this, Mom wondered, as she looked up to check the name of the boutique.


Omg ...

Would You believe it?


"Omg Justine ... of all the names that could have been up there, it has to be FOREVER 21 ..."

Your sister grinned ...

See how You make your presence felt? She did not have to stop at that boutique as they walked by ...

You must have whispered to her :

Check out this boutique, Ma ... :D

We soon met up with the aunties and Baby Megan.

We browsed around for a bit ... until Aunty D bumped into a friend. Aunty C, Justine, the baby and Mom walked out of the departmental store, to wait for Aunty D there. Meanwhile, Baby Megan spotted an arc of balloons and toddled towards it.

Balloons ...

Balloons ???

She thought of the two balloons this afternoon with the boys, and the number 21 that had called out to her.

You must be near  ...

Justine with Baby Megan

Baby Megan's fascinated with the balloons ...

... so mush so that the store's security guard came forward, took out his lighter to burn off part of the string that held the balloons releasing two balloons. He presented them to Megan.

Mom watched ... everything ... that was happening before her eyes, in awe.

She checked her time instantly.

It was 6:52 pm.

Decode : 4

She had to smile as she thought of her I Am Number Four ...

And two balloons?


You don't say ...

Gosh, what are the chances?

And wait a minute ... wait a minute ... as Mom caught sight of the number printed on the balloon.

Number 36 ???

Hellooo ...

36 ???

Why, isn't that a  21 ???

Omg ...

You can say that again ...

Omg ...

Code cracked ...

Message received ...

Her son has made contact ...


That was easy ...

The guard could have given Megan just ONE balloon ... but no, he had to give her TWO.

Like the two balloons this afternoon.

Of all the numbers that could have been printed on the balloons, it had to be a number that had a secret code 21 ... like the balloon inciDAN in the morning at the cafetaria with the two boys ... she knew the 21 was calling out to her ...

Hi Ma ... I'm right here ... :D

 ... otherwise why would she take a photo?

Wow, would You look at all her ... her ... overwhelming ... eviDANS. :D

Yes, 21 ...

Forever 21 ...

Gosh Daniel ... You really do know how to make your presence felt.

So anyway, Aunty D came out shortly ... saying that she wanted to have some coffee. Aunty C, her friend (who met her at the mall) and Justine said they wanted to check out the gym on the top floor.

Mom, Aunty D and Baby Megan went to Starbucks. We took the corner sofa, and placed the pram in a way where Megan was imprisoned in the corner along with a large sofa that prevented her from "getting out."


Aunty D prepared the baby's milk whilst Mom went to get the coffee.

Aunty D called out to say she wanted a large coffee latte. Mom ordered that for her, and a black tea for herself.

The counter girl cheerily asked, "Which size?"

Your mother said, "Small ..."

Mom took out some notes in preparation to pay for the drinks. Nothing would have prepared her for the zap she received from the bill.

Gasp ...

Gosh ...

24  4

Decode : You   You

The whole day, Daniel ... You've been with us ...

Why, do correct your mother if she's wrong but isn't that a loud and clear holler all the way from heaven :

Hi Ma, It's Me ... :D

24 being your birth date ...


And 4???

We all know, You Are Number 4.

See Call 410 : DAN JASON


Gosh Daniel, what an awesome day we had today ...

Truly, everywhere we are, there You'll be ...

Keep the zaps coming, Son ... and always let Mom know You're near. :D

Be good ...

We love You ... <3

Call 410 : DAN JASON

Hello Son,

This morning, Mom was at the mall.

She had sent two of her students to a classmate's birthday party at 10 am on the top floor. The party would end at 12:30 pm. She went to the book shop to browse around and also to get a present for the birthday boy.

At the book store ...

She browsed through some "must have" story books for children, and decided to pick one for the birthday boy. Feeling a little unsure if he would be as excited as she was to see that nice story book ... hey, it really is a nice book ... You saw it, didn't You? ... anyway, she decided to also include a Spiderman comic magazine. The boy would probably be more enthusiastic about the comic.

Clutching both books under her arm, she slowly made her way to the back of the store, appreciating the array of colourful books of all sizes, on the shelves.

She came to the section where the phonic books are displayed.

She picked up a book on the second shelf, flipped through it, raised her eyebrows, before putting it back.

Next, she picked up an activity book on the first shelf, opened it ... and closed it back.

Swinging around to the shelf opposite, she picked up a book at random and opened ... yes, opened ... not flipped and found a page ... but opened, to a page that caused her to hold her breath ... and allowed her brains to ... uh, shoot fireworks up to the sky ... in that few seconds.

Gosh ...

Dan ...

Dan ...

Dan ...

Sigh ...

Are You with Mom, Daniel ??? :D

See how easy it is to make your mother smile, Son ...

She pulled out her cell phone to snap a photo.

Returning the book back to its place, she took a few steps away before finding herself stopping in her tracks.

Oh gosh ...

Her eyes had caught sight of two JASON books right on the bottom shelf.

A coinciDANS? She'd wondered, as she took out her mobile to take a second picture.

Dan ... and then Jason ...

Mom walked to the front of the store. Stopping by to check out some more books on the display center, she suddenly noticed the introduction music to the song that was about to come on.

She checked the time immediately.

It was 10:50 am ...

Decode : 4

Omg ...

Omg ...

Omg ...



By Faith Hill.

In my dreams, I'll always see You soar above the sky

In my heart, there'll always be a place for You

for all my life

I'll keep a part of You with me

And everywhere I am, there You'll be

Mom checked the time she took of the last snap shot (JASON).

It was at 10:48 am.

Decode : 14

Oh gosh ... and 2 minutes later, the song comes on.

So soon after she takes a snapshot of DAN and JASON???

Gosh, what are the chances? Honestly, what are the chances?

Standing there, and enjoying the song, Mom sent an sms to Dad and Justine, telling them :

Gosh, aft snapping pic of DAN and JASON in mph, song THERE YOU'LL BE came on. It's still on. :D

Mom could have um, danced all night ... she could have danced all night ... except that she was in a public place and so she couldn't ... besides, what would sane people say?

You definitely are with Mom, Daniel ... :D

Yes, she knows ...

She knows ...

You must have whispered to Mom, to :

Take a photo of that (DAN), Ma ... 

and that (JASON) too ... :D

because she knows that You know she likes to have all the eviDANS she can get to build her umm, case.


Thank You, Son ...

You're just everywhere Mom is ... aren't You?

Everywhere ...

So anyway, she soon left the book store, walked around for a bit ... in here and out there ... until it was about time to get the boys. She walked over to the adjoining mall. It was still early, she had about 10 minutes to spare she went to pick up the boys ... so she stopped at another book store.

She walked around ... slowly ... to just waste some time ... until she spotted this before her eyes :

I Am Number Four ...

Sad, sad smile.

Mom had written about this I Am Number Four  inciDAN in your call blog many moons ago.

Thinking about the movie, and how it started with a voice yelling "Daniel ..." at the beach, she made her way to the party place.

Anyway ...

On the way back home, with the boys, would You please take a look at the vehicle that was in front of us as we came out of the parking area of the mall?

Shaking her head, she heard her son say :

I Am Number Four ... Ma ... :D

Yes Son ... You are number Four ...

You are ...

Eres Tu ...

Mom checked the time the photo was taken, at the time of writing this line.

The time was 1:23 pm.

That's You ...

Call 409 : POLKA DOT

Hello Son,

You know what?

Mom sent You Call 408 at 10:34 am this morning. She told You about the white feather, among others.

Then, we went to church for the 11:30 am mass.

Dad, Justine, Maid R and Mom.

Normally, every Sunday, we've been late attending mass.

So today, Mom was hurrying Dad and Justine to get ready, and she was like, "We should leave by 11 am ... c'mon hurry up ... hurry up ..."

We were finally in the car, on the way to church.

The first song that came on when Dad started the engine was LOVE IS ALL AROUND.

Mom recognized the song.

We laughed. Dad and Mom had seen the movie LOVE ACTUALLY some months ago, where this song was introduced but with different lyrics -- CHRISTMAS IS ALL AROUND.

(music video)

The next song, came ITSY BITSY ...

Oh, You know the song ... It was an itsy birsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini ... The children sang this song during POLKA DOT week about 2 months ago.

Mom thought about the children with their teddy bears in yellow polka dot bikinis and singing loudly to the Itsy Bitsy music ... and soon found herself smiling from ear to ear.

Nothing would have prepared her for the next song that made its grand entrance and quickly filled up our senses.

Omg ...

The lyrics came on ...

If I die young ...



Omg ...

Mom pointed to the time on the dashboard immediately.

It was 11:11 am.

Decode : 4

Holy mackerel.

What are the chances? That's like the most perfect timing in the world.

Justine peeked at the time from where she was sitting at the back of the car.

Dad saw the time too.

Yes, we all saw the perfect time, Daniel.

Gosh, You were definitely with us.

Mom sang along ...

The Band Perry

... until she came to the line that says :

And I'll be wearing white ...

She stopped abruptly.



Oh Gosh, Mom thought.

Oh Gosh ...

Omg ...

White ...

Eres tu ...

What are the chances of her hearing this zap line about half an hour after she sent You Call 408 where she told You about the white feather??? It's been so long since she last heard IF I DIE YOUNG ... and it came right then in the car on the way to church. The song came to an end just when Dad was nicely parked by the side of the road. We were meant to hear that IF I DIE YOUNG ... and get zapped. 

Omg ...

That was incredibly awesome ...

Eres tu ...

After mass, we drove to town to have some lunch.

Dad started the engine. Once again, LOVE IS ALL AROUND US was on the radio.


Twice today ... and right at the time when Dad started the ignition.

Gosh, what are the chances?

Mom said, "Eh, this song again ... Son knows you like the song la ... "


Reaching the coffee shop where we were gonna have some noodles, this vehicle appeared in front of us.

Mom pointed, "Look ... 1994 ... right in front of our faces ..."

Why, that's easy.

1994 being your birth year.

You're definitely with us, Daniel ... it's so obvious. :D

So anyway ... after lunch, we drove to a nearby mall. Justine and Mom were there on Friday. We had spotted a really cute polka dotted outfit we wanted to get for the children for one of the concert items, but there were not enough pieces. We needed 7 pieces, but the shop only had 6. We had checked all the kids' boutiques and nearby shops for that one more piece, but --- nothing.

Justine and Mom went back to the shop this Sunday morning to see if any new stock had arrived for that polka dotted outfit.

No ...

None ...

Dream on ...

As we were standing there and trying to look for an alternative, Dad suddenly said he wanted to go down (to the floor below) to check. Would You believe it but 5 minutes later, Dad called Mom on the cell and said, "Come down to 3rd floor, I found it ... "


Not possible ... Justine and Mom have looked everywhere ... in the mall and nearby shops.

We went down to the 3rd floor. Dad was waiting for us at the escalator. He led us to the outlet, and proudly pointed to the outfit that was hanging on the wall.

Oh yeah ...

Oh yeah ... that would do.

It was of the same material and colour as the other 6 pieces, except that the pattern on the neck/shoulder is different.

We bought them all instantly. :D

Mom said to your sister, "You wanted this particular outfit right from the start, and somehow we are going back with them today ..."

Justine commented, "Dad suddenly just said he was going down ... he found the missing piece ..."

Hmmm ...

You must have whispered to Dad ...

Pause ...

Did You, Daniel?

Check out the shop on the 3rd floor, Dad ... :D

Thanks Son ... Mom's sure You have something to do with it. Even Dad couldn't explain why he suddenly took off when we asked him about it later.

That was pretty amazing, Daniel ...

Eres tu ...

Call 408 : FROM HEAVEN

Hello Son, 


(your 32nd month)

Friday was your 32nd month anniversary with Jesus and Mary.

We will be going to your garden on Saturday, the next day ... as Friday was a school day.

After school was over, Dad came to pick Justine and Mom up. We were supposed to go to town to check out costumes for the Mickey (4Y) class children.

And so we went.

Mom was wondering how You were gonna zap her that day. Oh, she was sure, quite, quite sure ... correction --- very, very sure, that You would be sending her a zap or two on that Friday. It was after all your 21st.

You'd be calling ...

Oh yes, You would ...


Mom knows. :D

You must have seen her smiling secretly to herself in the car on the way to town.

We arrived shortly after.

Dad parked by the side of a curb. Mom opened the car door and stepped out.

Immediately, she noticed a tiny little brownish feather right at the tip of her shoes.

Mom stared down ...

... but did not take a photo.

It was brown ... and truthfully, it didn't feel like it came from heaven. Had it been white, she would have eagerly taken a snapshot.

Oh well ...

We walked to the mall, browsed through some shops that sell children's clothing and had lunch.

Soon, it was clear to us that we would not find what we were looking for.

We walked back to the car, which was parked some 100 meters away.

Walking through the five-foot pathway, we passed a row of retail shops.

At one point, as we were walking through, the song WE ARE YOUNG came booming from up the stairs of a boutique.

Justine and Mom turned immediately to each other, with our mouths dramatically opened.

Mom glanced at her mobile.

It was 2:29 pm.

Decode : 4

You're near, we know.

We know.

We reached the car, hopped in.

We were driving away when Mom spotted a colourful boutique and asked Dad to stop by the side. Dad drove by the curb and stopped the car. Mom opened the door.

She put a foot out on to the curb ...

Immediately  ...

She saw something on the tip of her shoe.

Huh ... W-what's that?

Peering closer toward the ground, she narrowed her eyebrows.

Omg ...

Omg ...

What are the chances?

Omg ... Would You believe it?

It was a pure -- white -- tiny little feather.

Mom bent down to pick it up by its tip, inspecting the precious feather in her hand.

Awww ... it's so so so -- clean and so so so -- white and so so so -- sparkling.

How could it be this clean and this white and this sparkling on this horribly dusty area and by the roadside, for cryin' out loud? Unless ... unless ... it'd just came a - floating down from above.

From heaven.


You wanted a white feather, Ma? :D

See Call 128 : White Feather

Mom gently placed the tiny white feather on the dashboard. 

Turning to Dad excitedly, she said, "Just now there was a brown one, and I ignored it. Now, look ... look at this one. Son sent me a nice white one ... " :D

Gosh, what are the chances of Dad stopping at the exact spot where the feather was gonna be right at the tip of her foot? The second time ...

Two times this happened ... the same thing, the same way ... a tiny feather at the tip of her foot ... first, when we arrived and second, when we're about to leave ... By the way, both times, she had looked and checked around as far as her eyes could see, and there were definitely no other stray feathers laying around ...

Omg ...

Her son has spoken loud and clear.

I'm here la, Ma ... :D

Mom heard You, Son ... :D

See what You did there? Sent the song, got us focused on You, and then like 5 minutes later, ZAP.

Her spirits lifted and big wide smile appeared on her face.

You must have seen that ...

You were / are definitely with us, Daniel ...

Call 407 : SEIZURE ZAP

Hello Son,


This afternoon, whilst driving to school, would You believe it but CHEST TO CHEST came on the radio?

Gosh, what are the chances?

Her eyes had shot to the time.

It was 4:36 pm.

Decode : 4


Mom normally leaves the condo before 4 pm to school. That's when the kids get up, and have an early dinner before the evening activities. That day, she was tired, and had taken a nap ... and by the time she got up, it was way past 4 pm.

She was rushing to school.

Approaching the slope down to the hospital, CHEST TO CHEST had come on and literally had her gasping.

Omg ...

It was only two days ago that she published that entry on ANIME BOOBS (Call 405) ... and in that entry she had listed down all the CHEST TO CHEST inciDANS that had happened prior to your 21st last month.

Oh, she was so meant to hear the song. It only took about 5 minutes to get to school and yet she was able to hear the whole song and ... think ... and think ... and think ... and make her connection ... to a very special angel somewhere over the rainbow.

It's just too awesome how You communicate with Mom, Daniel.

Nobody will ever understand this bond we have.

Honestly, no one ... except for ummm ... perhaps, another mother who has a child with Jesus and Mama Mary up in heaven. It was amazing to hear CHEST TO CHEST in the car at the time. Mom always appreciates her alone moments with You, Son.

Here's a big hug from Me, Ma ... :D

Thank you, Son ... Just continue to keep all the zaps coming, You hear?

Always always always ...

Always let Mom know You're near, Daniel ...

Always ...

The evening passed ...

It was almost 6 pm.

Time to drop the kids back home.

So anyway ...

We were in the MPV. Mom was driving, with the kids watching a cartoon DVD behind.

It was less than 5 minutes, when Mom spotted a 4WD with the registration plate 2222.

She had looked and had smiled to herself as she thought of the 2222 inciDAN that happened about 3 weeks ago. That morning then, before leaving the condo, Maid R and Mom were waiting by the fountain lobby for Dad to pick us up to school. A white vehicle with the number plate 2222 had drove pass us.

Mom made a casual comment, " Look at the white car ... 2222 ..."

Maid R said, "Yeah, so many twos ... 2222 ..."

That was first thing in the morning before we went to school. About 7 am. Then, would You believe it but after school that evening, about 8 pm, we were driving near the shops to get some dinner ... and another vehicle with the number plate 2222, black this time, somehow appeared in front of us.

Mom exclaimed, "Hey, a black 2222 ..." and proceeded to explain to Dad, who was driving, that she had seen a white 2222 in the morning ..."

Mom turned to the back seat, and said to Maid R, "We saw a 2222 this morning, right? White one? See? Another 2222  ..."

Maid R replied, "Yes ma'am ... morning was white, and this one is black ..."

It was not strange at all for Mom to note that 2222 first thing in the morning, and a second time, later in the evening (3 weeks ago). It was because it happened TWO times that she knew there was a connection. Her son was telling her that he's near. She had received that familiar ZAP ZAP ZAP moment.

Yeah, those moments always leave her feeling incredibly happy ... and all smiley.


She remembered the 2222 inciDAN clearly ... she had thought to herself as she was driving that Wednesday. It made her smile as she saw the 2222 vehicle disappearing before her eyes. Almost immediately, her attention was diverted to a bright yellow vehicle that drove past on her left side which left her gasping.

Omg ...

Omg ...

Omg ...


See Call 402 : Scorpion Flash.

Oh My Gosh ...


Plus check out the number ...


Decode : 24

Why, that's clearly You.

Nobody, nobody but You. :D


It's so your style ... Get Mom to focus and think about You first, and then ZAP her. :D

Hi Ma, I'm right here ... :D

Oh Wow  ... 

Gosh Gosh Gosh ...

Was that zap not loud and clear ?

That night at home ...

Law & Order (Special Unit Victims) was on the telly.

Justine had come out from her shower and was sitting on the sofa.

Mom went into the kitchen to get some apples and a tub of yogurt.

She came out of the kitchen, walked to the living area, and had plonked herself onto the sofa, when she suddenly saw a guy (or was it a woman now, she's not sure) having a seizure on the big screen.

Good Lord ...


Mom turned to your sister, "I -- just -- sat -- down ... and I have to see this ..."

Justine made a face and nodded. 

Before You slipped into a coma, some two weeks before You left us, You had had a seizure.

This took place in the hospital.


Mom will never be able to describe what the family went through seeing You in that way.

We felt so helpless, Daniel ...

Someday, Mom's gonna finish your Orange Blog story. It's just painful and difficult as the story goes closer and closer to your departure day. Having said that, it was just incredible how Jesus and Mother Mary made their presence felt every step of the way till your last breath.

Right then, when Mom saw the seizure on telly, she had thought, if that person is having a brain tumor, this is a zap. She was meant to see it. Her son is making his presence felt. He's near. He's right beside her. He wants to remind her.

As it turned out, that guy (or women) with the seizure did not have a brain tumor. Instead, he (or she) was having a condition that is related to AIDS. The medical term was mentioned, but Mom cannot remember now what it was.

To be honest, she felt her spirits take a dip when she learned that the seizure was not connected to a brain tumor but to AIDS.

She had grimaced.

You would have seen your mother's face.

There should be TWO signs, Daniel, for Mom to take this zap sign seriously and know the zap is from You.

Where is the second sign???

The timing was so spot on. She had just -- sat -- down ... and there she was, witnessing a seizure.

And then --- AIDS???

What an anti-climax.




Shortly after, You're not gonna believe this but the detective on the show brought this AIDS infected boy to visit a girl-patient in a hospital environment. 

Mom was watching as she ate her yogurt ... not really following the story.

The boy asked the girl, what's wrong with you? (something or rather)

The patient replied ...

Get ready for this ...

 "Brain cancer ..."


Oh My Lord ...


What are the chances???

Justine couldn't believe it either.

I'm right here, Ma ... :D

Two days to your 21st ...

You sure know how to make your presence felt, Daniel ... throughout the whole day.

Call 405 : ANIME BOOBS

Hello Son,                              (continue from Call 404)

TUESDAY, AUGUST 21           

Your 31st month anniversary.

We went to your garden in the morning.

That day, for some reason, there were many ants on the cement plot. Mom noticed the ants ... yes we all did ... after all, your family has been to your flower garden every month since You left ... but this is the first time, that we see all those many ants visiting at the same time.

Mom avoided the ants, and tried to sweep them away with the broom. She couldn't get rid of them completely, and finally she let them be ... they were after all minding their own business and busily moving in one trail, not really disturbing us or crawling all over the place.

After saying the rosary and finishing with a prayer, we left your garden. 

In the car, Mom said aloud, "Daniel, Mom's waiting for your zap ... " :D

She wondered how and what You would send her that day. 

The radio was on. Mom listened carefully to every song that came on - but - nothing. 

No zaps.

In fact, as it turned out, the whole day passed without her receiving any zaps from Heaven. 

"Why hasn't Son said anything? Today is his 21st ... He's so quiet today ..." she'd moaned to Dad.

Evening came ...

And still nothing.

Where are You, Son? Aren't You gonna say something? Mom's waiting ...

A shred of uncertainty crept in her veins as she suddenly thought of those ants that morning. 

She soon found herself wondering if those ants at your garden had been "it." 

Were those it??? 

She'd frowned as she tried to make a connection.

Oh well, even if they were, there would be a second zap, confirming that. That's the understanding between her and her son in heaven.

After dinner at home, Mom uploaded some photos on your Flower Garden 21 blog. 

Then, at 9:06 pm, she sent You Call 398 (31st Month).

Right after that, she prepared the draft entry for Call 399 (No Lollipops)

It was then that she received a big ZAP!!!

Omg ...

Just to recap ... 

Friday 17 afternoon (Call 399) : Chest to Chest at the sundry shop opposite the school.

Friday 17 evening (Call 399) : Chest to Chest at the juice stall at the mall. 

Saturday 18 in the car (Call 400) : Rihanna (Chest to Chest) on Friends DVD.

Sunday 19 at the resort (Call 402) : The scorpion (You).

Sunday 19 in the jungle (Call 403) : The ants 
(at the time, Mom was unaware that the ants had any connection to You).

Sunday 19 in the TV room at the resort (Call 404) : Electricity power suddenly went off (You).

Monday 20 in the car back in KL (Call 404) : Chest to Chest came on the radio with a loud boom.

Picture all those inciDANS now, would You please? 

One after another ... leading to the BIG ZAP on the night of your 21st. 

Mom had been waiting for her zap the whole day that day, as she said ... but nothing came ... except for those ants, which she had desperately tried to make a connection. 

So anyway, whilst preparing draft entry Call 399, she had googled the words "anime boobs" for an image to upload under the paragraph where she related about the Chest to Chest inciDAN in the sundry shop. 

When your mother first viewed the boobs images that enfolded, she had shook her head and decided those over-sized, enormous, generous-looking bosoms, most of which were either spilling or bursting out of the outfits, were not all that appropriate to upload on your blog.

No, they were certainly not for your eyes ... 

You're much too young to be seeing those kind of images.

What would Mama Mary say?

As she was scrolling, she suddenly found herself drawn to this image below ... 

She had in fact been staring at the image ... perhaps because it is different from the other boob pictures.

Flat chested and totally modest ...

Ah, this would be appropriate, she'd thought.

Mom dragged the image to the desktop and proceeded to upload on that entry.

It was only after the image was attached on to the entry, that she suddenly noticed that the image was coming to life. :D

Mom began to laugh when a flash of enlightening hit her and she experienced that familiar ZAP ZAP ZAP.

Omg ...

You've gotta be kidding, Son ...

Omg ...

How funny is this ???

Still laughing to herself, Mom called Dad over to the monitor.

"Omg ... would you take a look at this?" she chuckled happily.

She continued heartily, "The whole day today, I've been waiting for Son to zap ... since this morning at his garden ... I thought it was the ants at first, but there was no second zap ... and tonight, before the day ends, he sends his second zap ... Omg ... I'm quite sure he whispered to me ... I'm sure of it ... of all the images that appeared on the screen, I was staring at this one for quite awhile ... yes really, the others I just glanced through ... but this one, this one, I actually stopped and stared and wondered ... Omg ...  Chest to Chest, Ma ... Awww, how perfect is this ... I waited the WHOLE day for him to say something ... This is him, I know it's him ... It's definitely him ... Hahahaha ... "

Mom was so caught up with the moment, she was almost speaking in tongues.

Dad laughed and said that that idea of a boob joke sounded like something You would do.




That was quite a moment there, Daniel ...

It was definitely worth the wait, Son ...

All those Chest to Chest inciDANS the few days before your 21st, leading to this big boob zap that night on your 21st. Oh boy, who would have thought ... :D:D:D

Boobs to boobs, Ma :D

Mom heard You ... and which she secretly interprets that as:

Here's a big boobs - to - boobs hug from Me, Ma ... :D

Yes Son, Mom felt that big hug from You all the way from Heaven, down here. :D

Thank You, Daniel ... that was super-amazing. 

You must have seen your mother go to bed with a big smile that night.

Keep the zaps coming, Son ... :D

We love You so very much, and miss You more than words can say ...

Monday, Sept 17
