shopping with baba.
in just a few hours, we would always manage to go to at least four or five places. our second last stop was always to get groceries, saving our last to be a coffee date. she and i would always get the same meal, which must have looked very funny given that we are nearly the same height, with the same haircut, and eating the same food. i always joked to her that we were twin sisters, and she would reply that i acted more like her mum since i took care of her when we went out together.
last month my baba had a heart attack and since then everything has changed. we will no longer be having these shopping trips of ours. this makes me incredibly sad but at the same time i am so relieved that the outcome of what happened to her was not fatal!
this post is in honor of my baba. i love you. :-)
