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
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
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.

Isn’t she cute?
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.
