In a twist of fate, everything changed…
I’ve been following the news of the terrorists attack in Mumbai for the past few days.
I read about today’s article and got all teary-eyed...
The love story of Lo Hwei Yen and Michael Puhaindran didn’t last happily ever after. Puhaindran proposed to Lo in the Maldives within eight months of meeting her and held a beautiful Bali wedding. Everything in life was perfect until she was being held hostage by gunmen and died in the hands of these senseless terrorists.
Her last final email was sent to her best friends, ending off by saying...
“if I don't make it out of here I love you all…”
Her last words to her husband were...
“I love you very much…”
After that phone call was a few agonizing silent hours of waiting… a call in the early hours of the morning confirmed Puhaindran's fears.
Reading the all the articles and watching Puhaindran giving his speech at the press conference was truly a heartbreaking one. He said:
"Everything I did, I did for her. My whole life revolved around her and she truly was the meaning of my life."
I try putting myself in his shoes and I just can’t do it... It’s going to be very hard to pick up all these pieces and live on with life.
I’m so glad V is not flying to New Delhi this week. Thank God the meeting got cancel.
My deepest condolences to all her friends and families…. RIP.
you'll know it's
all because of you
we can do
whatever we want to
Made with Love
