The last time she saw her half-sister was 26 years ago at Parkway Parade.

Now Stomper Jasmine is looking for her as their father has been asking to see his other daughter.

"My father is 78 years and in a nursing home. I hope to find his loving daughter before anything happens to him," she told Stomp.

"My father and I are not in a good relationship. My parents divorced and we didn't keep in contact.

"In 2014, I received a call from Changi General Hospital that he was in A&E. He had a stroke and it was quite serious."

Jasmine tried to find her half-sister then by contacting the Chinese evening daily Lianhe Wanbao, which published their story on Sept 1, 2014.

"Unfortunately, no news," said the Stomper.

Jasmine was born five months before her half-sister in 1971.

"I have three brothers and was very happy she moved in with us when we were 12 years old," recounted the Stomper. "She stayed for only less than half a year before she left.

"I only know her Chinese name, 郭月彬."

The Stomper has one photo of the two of them together, which was taken when they were 18.

"I'm the one wearing white shorts. I'm very tall and she is very short," Jasmine recalled fondly.

When she was 26, she ran into her half-sister in a lift at Parkway Parade.

"She told me she was married to a Japanese guy," said the Stomper, who never saw her half-sister again.

"I never thought of looking for her till my father kept asking for her.

"Last Sunday, I went to visit my father and realised his eyesight was not so clear. That was why I decided to help him look for my half-sis in case anything happens.

"Life is so unpredictable."
