(Topman sweater, Cheap Monday jeans, Vans x Kenzo shoes)
During the last couple of weeks I have completely find myself disconnected from all things digital. If you follow me on Twitter, you might know that I’ve been going through a tough time recently. A week ago, my older brother passed away after battling with cancer. Sometimes I wonder why he had been taken away so early on, but that is not something that I can answer. Maybe God loves him and miss him so much. However I’m still grateful to have an amazing brother that will never be measured up to. I’m thankful of the memories that I will always have of him. He’s my inspiration. Even though he’s sick, he was always cheerful and never complaining. He believed that life should be lived to its fullest. He taught me how to not lost hope and smile, even when things were horrible. “What’s the harm in trying?” is a phrase he used to say often. These are the latest shot of mine that taken by him before he’s gone. Ohhh I miss him very much everyday. I know that the day he escaped he was finally able to fly and soar and truly enjoy life the way that it was meant to be enjoyed. It doesn’t take the sorrow away, but it makes me smile to know that somewhere in the skies and in Heaven, he is making others smile. Adieu, my brother! See you in the next life!

    I wouldn't say condolence or anything, because personally i thought this is not something to be sad about–in fact, we should all be grateful of how God loves him so much. This is a very moving story, and i bet your brother is on a better place right now. You be stron, Arnold 🙂

    Cheers from Jakarta,

    condolence for the death of your brother. I've always believed that every human being is born later would have died too. And when we had to leave this world, that's the best time that God has given to us. Keep smiling and always remember your best memory with your lovely brother.

    Sorry for your loss. It's never easy losing a loved one, especially someone so close like a sibling. I'm sure he's in a far better place now- what better place could there be than in God's Kingdom? To me, death is only the beginning so, no worries, you'll see him again soon<3

    By the way, love your blog- Following ^..^
