I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with PohPoh when she was in her early 90s. She had so many stories, poems, songs & lessons to share! One of my favourites was when she married Goong Goong. It was arranged by a matchmaker. All Pohpoh knew was that her groom was from a neighbouring village, but she soon heard rumours that he might be rather unintelligent & unattractive. She & her family worried. But when she finally got to meet him on their wedding night, she couldn't believe what a hunk he was! Pohpoh would giggle & grin ear to ear every time she told me this story 🥰 I miss her dearly
