My Friday has a great unexpected ending, I found out that mom brought back dad’s belonging from his original home. Granpa had kept his things until mom and brother decided to have a visit there. I would be joining up if I’m not on a work trip to Semporna last week, but I was rewarded anyway, a treasure that cannot be anywhere else in the world.
It all started when I noticed this vintage looking alarm clock being put on the shelves. I asked my brother and he explained how they get it, then I took the clock and have a closer observation.
This clock is pretty rusty all over, and this time keeper is one a wind-up type.
I have no idea about the make and model of this clock, but something caught my attention, written on the clock dial (near 6) is “Made In Germany“.
And I can’t help noticing something that resembles the Nazi’s Parteiadler emblem on the top small dial.
The surprise was not over, my little sister handed me some of dad’s old photos. At first I thought it was photos of him when he was working in Iraq and Singapore, turns out to be..
None other than the precious black and white photos, I can’t believe that dad keep photos like this. Some of the photos are badly damaged, and some of it is still in a very good condition.
This is one of the greatest find about dad, even though my dad is not here to tell the story of each photograph, I already have this sense of duty to keep and guard this precious treasure for the next generation to see. I will scan the photos and keep a digital version of it.I will also attempt to restore some of the badly damaged photos, Let see what I can do…
The greatest treasures are those invisible to the eye but found by the heart.
