A Kadazan moing was very ill and his grandson went to visit him in the Queen Elizabeth hospital. All of a sudden, the moing began to breathe heavily and grabbed the pen and pad by the bed. With his last piece of strength he wrote a note, dropped it, and died.
The grandson was so overcome with grief that he forget about the note in his pocket. At the funeral, he reached into the pocket of his coat and immediately felt the note. He excitedly read it thinking it might be something he could recite during the service. It said:
Please don’t step on my oxygen pipe!!!
P/s Moing is a word in Kadazan and it means either grandmother or grandfather.The Kadazans are an ethnic group indigenous to the state of Sabah in Malaysia.
