My grand moth er. Grandmother story. Done by: Cherlene Nah. Her childhood. My grandmother lived at Fort Canning. She has one brother and two sisters. It may seem a lot but actually during those times it is counted as a very small family. She is the third child in the family but everyone was treated very equally in the family so the age does not really matter. She does not know how to read or write because she never got the chance to study. My grandmother was very poor at that time and had to work to support her siblings even though she wasn't the oldest. She worked all day and night just to earn a little to feed everyone. I do not know what her parents were doing but apparently they were too old and sick to do any work so it was actually very tiring for my grandmother and therefore she did not have the chance to study. Even though it was very tiring, she was glad to be able to show her filialness to her parents. 5 senses. 1)Sight: She looks very cute.( I think all old people look very cute and innocent. Well...except for the kind that push people a lot and shout really loud for no apparent reason.)She is just a little shorter than my height but is, luckily, not fat. 2)Smell: I don’t smell my grandmother but she does not stink. 3)Taste:She is not very fussy about the food she eats but she is when it comes to the food she cooks. 4)Touch:Her skin is very dry. 5)Hear: She can hear just like others.

She is the one in orange. Isn’t she cute? Lessons learnt. She taught me to be grateful to my parents because they earn money to feed us and let us live a normal life and give us a chance to study. She also taught me never to give up when I meet with an obstacle because no matter how big and dangerous or small and pathetic it is, there is always a way to overcome it. After all, when there is a will, there is a way. (She did not have to speak to tell me these but she showed it through actions and her life experiences.) The End.
