Ordinary Miracle Today

Under shade of Arcadia Trees on a beautiful day

I am so happy to finally receive a text message from Wifey this morning.

They have already left Kuala Lumpur and will reach Singapore in the evening. I prayed for their safe journey home.

I do not know why I felt so alive again... I suddenly felt the urge to clean around the house just to prepare it to receive them back home. Strange, even to me... but that was what I did.

Nope! Not because Wifey will nag at me for not picking-up after myself while she is away... though I admit I deserve that if I did not, but I feel that she will be happy to see the house spotless. Nothing much she needed to do, but relax after the 6 long hours journey back.

When the doorbell finally rang, I opened the door with a big smile on my face and a hidden heart-pounding excitement I contained within me. Man! I missed them so much these past week... so glad there are back home again!

Finally, the PC in my son's room is churning-out that irritating Japanese music again with the break-dancing game that our Son has been playing with his cousins and friends online.

Finally, the 37 Inch LCD TV is tuned to Starhub's Channel 99 with Wifey's favourite Korean "Hello, My Lady" love-comedy series... the often predictable, over-acting show that always makes my hair stand, is playing with a faithful fan on the sofa in front of it.

Finally I see their happy faces in our home again. See them, touch them, smell them... talking to them and catching-up on things. Ahh...

Maybe it is nothing much to another man, but this sappy guy feels it as nothing short of an ordinary miracle today.

Life is beautiful! Again...


  1. Glad to hear your family is back home with you. And what a great guy you are to clean up and make every thing nice for the welcome home. How thoughtful.

  2. Hi Wandi,

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Yes, I'm so happy that they have reached home safe and sound with happy stories to share with me.

    I even got a surprise from Wan all the way from KL. She cooked some of my favourite dishes Wifey brought back for me here.

    I feel complete again.

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Believe me, the annoying video game sounds are heard around the world. I hear them, too. :)
    Glad all are safe.

  4. Hi Andrew,

    I hear you man, but I have never been so happy to hear that annoying sound again.

    I am just happy they are back. Selfish as it may sound, but the next time around, I'm going with them.

    Have a good weekend, my friend.

  5. No place like home huh? Welcome back :)

    PS. Loved the pic
