Story Time
91487-200.png

I was born on June 23rd; Horoscope-ly speaking, I am a Cancer. I grew up in a tiny village in Indonesia with my older brother and older sister. My parents were both doctors, and my siblings they are all now doctors as well. My brother is an Urologist whereas my sister is a GP but is now back to school taking Healthcare management; just like my Mom did.

 

My dad in particular was a pediatrician. It was very tough to be a Pediatric in that time, but my mom said he was very smart, best in class, best graduate from one of the best universities in the country. Ironically, he was a heavy smoker. He had spent countless nights studying with packs of cigarette by his side; smoking it on-and-off.

When I was 5 years’ old, he got diagnosed with Cancer. And passed away.

He left without giving a hug.

He left without saying goodbye.

He left without leaving me anything.

The only thing he left for me...

is his last name:
