-from Judith's family.
Judith (Bom) came into the world on August 12, 1988. As a kid, she was tiny. When she was in her second year of Kindy, she became a chubby child after discovering her love of food at such a young age. Her Popos fueled this by constantly feeding her. There was no such thing as "breakfast-type food" in our house. It was common sight for Bom to be downing an entire plate of sambal belacan fried rice first thing in the morning before school.
After high school in 2006, she came to NZ and lived in Palmerston North on campus at Massey University with her sister Jo. Though she was primarily there to receive a tertiary education, school work was never a priority. Rather, she made it a point to spend time with her sister and explore the (tiny) home away from home.
After university, Judith moved to Auckland and started her working life where she was committed to her job. She turned colleagues into friends. She was known for being the fashionista at work and her friends would know whenever she was close by just by the infectious laughter of hers.
She made it a point to go back home to Kuching every Chinese New Year to be with her family. She would bring with her homemade brownies to share with everyone. She was a joy to be around and it pleased Popo to no end to see Bom every year.
She left the world the same way she came - with mum and dad by her side. Although physically gone, Bom has left a mark in the hearts of everyone she came in contact with. She made everyone feel special and loved. She cared for her friends and family and was never hesitant to help in anyway she could. She was there. Always a giver. She will be missed.
We love you Bombie.
