My grandfather

I have very poor memory. At first thought, I couldn't think of anyone from my childhood to write about. Then, I recall a teacher, and then I recall my grandfather. I miss him a lot.

I don't have a picture of him or with him. I could not remember his look. But I remember him, as a quiet, loving old man. He would brought us to the nearby temple to see tortoises. I could barely remember he fed the tortoise with vegetables. He sometimes would fake that the tortoise bit his finger, and he would shout of pain. And I remembered my sister and I opened our eyes wide, looking at his fingers.

He had a big glass bottle, containing biscuits. They were walnut biscuits. He would give us biscuits or sweets when we visit to our grandparents' house.

I remember his room. The door to the backyard is beside his room door.

He ate rice soaking in tea or coffee.

I wish I have a photo with him, so I could remember him in high definition memory.

I love him, always.
