Hello music lovers. I'm Joey or "Katabok".
A little bit different topic today, just want to share my thoughts on life. So it was my dads birthday this week (25 July) and he's now 51 years of age (middle aged father). Now my dad has had a various amount of health conditions, heart attack, high blood pressure and cholesterol level. Some conditions and genetic factors may be hereditary, My grandmother (his mum) had diabetes (recently deceased at 70 RIP) and his father died at 50 from a bad surgery (RIP). My dads brother died at 40 from a heart attack due to stress/anxiety and smoking. It really seems like the males in my family die at a somewhat relatively earlier age in comparison to a normal males from a 1st world country (I was born in Medan, Indonesia).
It's not a good thought but, I'm grateful that god has allowed my dad to live on until now. Coincidental story was that my mum and dad went to Israel for a holiday 2 years back. My dad was drinking the famed Jerusalem "Canaan" wine (he brought it back and it was tastey as fuck, taste like honey!"). Apparently the doctors think that the Wine triggered a reaction in his body and his heart started to hurt, he told me having a heart attack felt like there was something continuously pressing on his chest and that it's really hard to breathe. Now this is where the coincidence happens, the area he was in when having the heart attack had the BEST heart surgeons in the WHOLE WORLD, and they fixed him up successfully! Coincidence? GODS WILL? The doctors later found out that his arteries were 90% blocked!!!! (WHAT TEH FUCK). All this time he's been somehow walking around with heavily blocked arteries..... LUCKILY AGAIN he had holiday insurance cover! and so the medical fees were all expenses paid, since he was also a Australian Citizen he was treated as a top priority patient.
Since he turned 51 this year (25 July 2017), I was thinking about how fickle life really is. How long has he got left to live? What can I DO in the next 5-10 YEARS to make him proud & live easier?!? I'm 22 now, and I have literally nothing to my name. I hope I can DO SOMETHING with my life and make a impact or difference in my community within the next 10 years. I HOPE my parents live long enough to see their future Grand children.
