  1. I am so sorry Kenny. There are no words to describe how sad I am for you right now.
    All I can do is hope that your father went peacefully and that you were able to spend some good times with him before he passed.

  2. My condolences, Kenny. I am sorry to hear that. Hang in there, and remember the stories that the two of you lived through together. He will always continue to live in your heart

  3. my deepest condolenses.. so sorry to heard that…
    please takecare… you must be tough… your family needs you to be so…

  4. Kenny, He will live on in your memory. Be strong for the family and have a good cry when you got the chance, ok? Take care!

  5. We can say lots of cliches like “He has been released from his sufferings” and “Time heals everything”. But as of now I don’t think any of those words would be of help.
    Just stay strong, keep you chin up and I am sure your friends will be there if you need anything.

  6. Thank God for the fact that you were able to be by his side throughout the journey with him.
    Im so sorry for your loss, and i just want you to know that people who hardly know you are praying for your family.
    Take care, be strong..
    Much love,

  7. My deepest and most heartfelt condolences. I’m truly sorry to hear about this. Hang in there buddy…your family needs you now more than ever.

  8. thinking of you and your family all the way from here in this time of loss. but he was loved and had his family with him all the way. *hug*

  9. Dear Kenny,
    I am so sorry. I have been reading your blogs for quite a while, and although you make everybody laugh with your entries, one thing I do know is that your love for your father is very very genuine and clearly… this comes as a big blow to you. I can only pray that you are strong enough to overcome this extremely trying period… and take comfort that you made the decision to come home and spend the past few months with him. He must have been proud to have you as a son.
    I am not sure if you realise it, but you have somehow managed to reach the hearts of your fellow “blogders” (ok, I got it from xiaxue)… they laugh with you and they cry with you. Even as I am typing this now, I am trying hard to fight back my tears. You have truly touched the hearts of many. Especially your posts on your father. He will remain in your heart (and most of us out there) for eternity.
    Take care of your mother, let her know you will always be there for her. She needs you now.
    Take care and good luck.

    My condolences.

  14. At least he was fortunate enough to have his family by his side. And it happened gradually too.. so in a way, take it as a blessing that his sufferings are over. You take care of yourself now, Kenny. At least you spent time with your father. Not everybody managed to do that. My condolences to you and the rest of the Sia family.

  15. My deepest condolences to you and your family.
    He may be gone but he will be always in your heart. Take care!

Let this few moments be your mourning period, and after this, move on. I know nothing I say could change anything…My condolences to you and your family.

  18. My sincere condolences Kenny Sia. No doubt his passing is difficult to accept. Hope you and your family are able to draw strength from the wonderful memories you all have had with your father and cherish the time spent with him all these years.

    I know it is disheartening for you and your family even though you know this moment would come. In the end, everything worked out for the best, he is now at a better place where there is no suffering, a suffering he had endured as his health declined in the past months.
    As you flashed back in your previous blog, I notice that you very much appreciated and learnt from your father the value of hard work and ambition, and how much he meant to you, and that is comforting to your dad and is more than what a parent can ask for. I hope it is just as comforting for you to know that.

  28. Hey dude, my sincere condolences.
    The next few days will be hectic and stressful since this is probably your first time to deal with such situation. Being educated abroad you may find some of the traditional activities a little difficult to accept, be patient, take a long walk…. think about something to blog,your dad will be glad in another world to know you turn a sad departure into a celebration to enter eternity.
    I am sure the humorous nature in you will soon let the sad feelings go and keep the happy moments of being with your dad in your memory.
    Looking forward to your humorous post again.

  29. No words can really describe how it feels to lose a member of your family, especially if its one of your parents.
    You have my condolences.

  30. My dad passed away two years ago. At least you got to see him all the way to adulthood.
    There’s not much I can do other than offer my condolences to your whole family.
    Take care Kenny. Your father sure seems like a respectable man. 🙂 May he rest in peace.

  31. Whoa man…. I’m real sorry about your father. My dad worked in a rubber plantation once, too….. you did the best thing you could have done by being beside him.

  32. Kenny,
    My deepest condolences to the loss of your father. Stay strong and be proud of your dad.

  33. kenny dear, be strong now.
    take comfort in the fact that he is no longer suffering, and that he had lived life to the fullest.
    my deepest condolences to u and ur family.

    Be strong, wish I could pay my respect to your dad too.

  43. The past 12 hours has been a long and difficult one. I’m overwhelmed with emotions, mostly sadness and anger. I’m still trying to swallow in the fact that I lost my father, that he will no longer be with me to continue on with my journey of life. This reality is hard to accept. I’m still struggling.
    I’ve read every single comment here, and I thank each and everyone of you for leaving kind comments and words of encouragement. Its especially heartwarming to hear from strangers and friends alike, from places as close to Kuching and as far as US, UK, Australia. I’m touched that some of you even dedicated entries on your blog for me. Somehow it makes going through the past 12 hours a little bit easier.
    *** To my Kuching readers – I understand that my privacy may be compromised following my father’s passing. I ask that you respect my privacy. Please do not disclose any unnecessary information about my family or my job on this site. And please do not disclose the existence of this blog to anyone else in Kuching. As odd as it sounds, I rather as little people in Kuching know about my blog as possible, only because I know how hurtful gossips may be. I enjoy writing, I’m sure many enjoy reading. Please do not be a bad sport and spoil it for us.
    Once again I thank you for giving me strength to get through this very difficult time.

  44. My deepest condolences to your loss, Kenny – my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family now. Be strong – you’ve done all a filial son could do.

Remember your dad is at a place better then this earth..

  46. My deepest condolences for your loss, Kenny. My father left us when I was still a teenager, so I can understand how you feel. Grief but be strong for your family.

  47. Dear Kenny,
