“HE has changed me…”
I was never a passionate Catholic at young age. Born a cradle Catholic, I never liked the early morning on Sunday for Catechism nor mass, which was seemingly boring for me.
I was born and grew up in a kampong in the Upper Serangoon Road area. In my time, it was a common practice for many families to be professing two different faiths and practise ancestral worship. This was what I faced in my growing up years.
I used to have a close relationship with my mother. I remember coming home from school each day and sharing the events of my day while she was prepping food or doing laundry in the kitchen.
