Just heard from my mum that an auntie’s granddaughter passed away  days ago.

Shocked at the news, as the girl was only 6 years old, and I met her downstairs only a few days before.

Apparently the girl suffered from 惊风 (infantile convulsion), which affects kids between the age of 1 – 5yrs old, and is the top 4 most common illness among kids (according to baidu, other sources –, wikisource).

Never underestimate the power of frights. That’s the reason why parents (except those who do not believe in chinese medicine) always feed their child 惊风散 – a kind of powder that helps to reduce the amount of fright in a child.

Rest In Peace Charlene. You will be remembered in our hearts.
