" C'est la Vie! " that's a French expression which means " That's Life! " in English.
That's what my mom used to say to me when I was a little boy whenever I asked her detailed questions about the complexity of people's characters and their lives.
Ironically, that's what I said to my mom last Saturday when she asked me detailed questions about the very shocking sudden demise of actor/model turned member of the House of Representatives Adjie Massaid (43) who passed away in the very early morning of Saturday because of a very sudden heart attack.
My mom (80) and dad (81) have reasons to ask for details, because they used to be quite close to Adjie as kid brother of Cherie, Dutch citizen ex wife of my late kid brother Dody. Although Dody passed away many years ago and Cherie have been living in Holland with their daughter Kemilau however my parents' longing for their niece seems make them remember about people related to her.
Adjie's death has changed my perception about heart attack which I used to think would only cause death to people above 50 who are lazy, love eating, fat, burdened with whole lots of problems in their lives.
Compared to me, Adjie lead a much healthier life than me in the sense he maintained physical health since he was young, he has successful careers, a loving father of three kids, two from ex wife Reza (popular singer) and one from current wife Angelina Sondakh a member of the House.
From now on I must change my habits and start physical exercises more frequently, minimize eating meats that I loved so much, be more relax and flexible, and most of all I should sleep more than I usually do.
Last but not least, I would like to express my deepest condolences and sympathy to everyone close to Adjie, may his soul rest in peace.
