Ranting on Eleven, Eleven, Eleven

Sometimes I likened myself to a weather girl! Each passing day with each passing weather, I am all into it. I take mental notes of the changes in my surroundings and play along with my moods afterwards. These two days see the skies in beautiful hues of blue. Thanks to the bright sunny day. I see the foliage fully green..in fact greener than it used to be. All the blessed rains we had had for the past weeks has put life to everything. But then again, being me...looking outside the window, a surge of sadness sets in when I cast my view on the awfully quiet park. With this lovely weather, driving to the seaside is apt as it takes my mysterious sadness away...hiks! ;-) 





I was driving everywhere this morning when I remembered today's date. I know everyone is excited about this date though not all really have the reasons to mark the 11-11-11 as their special day. But I see this date as numbers in itself....and a special person who loved the number ONE. 

That special person was my late brother-in-law. How shall I put this? I really want to say he was 'obsessed' with that number, but to term it an obsession would be over-rated. Anyway, I was only a school-girl when I heard about him going steady with my big sister (also deceased, now). I knew people were talking about him being the eligible bachelor with passion for fast cars and the number 17, denoting his birth date. Oh yeah...he was a Cancerian like moi..hehehe! TCLSS, when he married my sister, it was on a 17th January, and everything from then on seemed to be in seventeens but of course, not their babies! But soon he changed his interest when registering for a new car. I presumed, being a married man his attention was on his one and only, my sis! 
So over the years his cars bore those number ones: from a double 1, to triple 1 and the last being 1111. Among my siblings, I was the lucky wan when come my wedding day, he offered to drive the newly-weds, ehem..hubby and I lah tu, in his new car bearing the plate: P*M 111, for the majlis bertandang at hubby's kampung. Weeeeheeee)) Well, itu aje citernye...and to think I have quoted so many 'ones' in my posting today...Hahaha!!
 
I wish I could write some more about my b-i-l, but I can't do it anymore. It is so painful to recall the tragic incident that took his life. You can read about it HERE.  Al-Fatihah buat daddy.

And as for today, I reckon, this beautiful sunshine is gonna stay if only...
