    Bad news

    Just came back home. I got a bad news for people who knew the famous Marchand Sinois (aka Ting Tong). He died yesterday…

    He has been part of our childhood since generations

    SINCERE SYMPATHY TO THE FAMILY. ** ONE THING I STILL REMEMBER IS THAT WHEN I CAME TO YOUR PLACE LONG TIME AGO, appx 20 YRS BACK, THIS GUY STOP AT YOUR DADI PLACE, GET ONE ICE CREAM, EAT HALF OF IT, AND GAVE THE REMAINING HALF TO THEIR DOG. I THINK IT WAS EVERY WEEK. JUST ASK YOUR CHACHA MAY BE HE KNOWS.

    THE DOG WAS WAITING FOR HIM…..
