I went to my kids' school earlier, for a brief Parent Support Group meeting. During the meeting, i also told them that i wont be able to help out in any areas anymore, due to my domestic committments.
After the meeting, i left the room and walked towards the canteen, where the bookshop is. I need to get an art file for my daughter. In front of me, was tis lady that i used to see her in the school, as she's also one of the parent's volunteer. Usually, we just smiled at each other but never talk. She stood right in front of me, once a while she'll turn behind and our eyes contact. So I decided to say "Hi' to her and we started to talk (for the first time).
I just have to open my mouth and said "you lost weight eh" "wat did u do? exercise? on diet?"
Her answered shocked me ...i dunno how to react at first...i couldnt believe my ears. She said " i didnt do anyting, i just lost my husband a month ago " :( I sensed sadness in her voice. She didnt want to elaborate. My heart just sank.
My mind got so many things to ask her, but the time and place were not right. After getting the books , she waved at me and left. I never see her again.
