In the buzzingly Clementi Central, we were looking for our favourite Chinese rice stall from the past. It was drizzling slightly. But it felt so warm to catch up with a long time ago good friend. We didnt find the Chicken rice, so we settled down in Mac and talked. We talked about everything and anything.. from the past to now.. of what we had missed out with one another for one year.
She had just finished her study. And in Perth, she grew a lot.. in minds and thoughts. She said she shared about me while in Perth, of how I had encouraged her. I smiled at her but sighed deeply within. The heart was heavy, for it knew something that she doesnt. But her words had encouraged this contrited heart. "At least, he is still with her", i breathed.
Then we talked about work. Working in the world is tough, I told her, because you are in the world but not of the world. When the rest sleep in the dark, we need to stay awake and be watchful.. This is tiring... and soon, in the end.. we may be like everybody else.. taking nap or even fall into deep sleep when the night comes. Working is different from schooling.. there is more.
But well.. we dun need Work to help us to sleep in the nights. Many things can make us asleep in nights.. many things. You can name many since sleeping at night is a common thing. Yet there is one thing that keep us awake in the night - and some of us had guessed correctly - the light. Some of us thought that we can just burn a midnight's oil and then go without sleeping over many nights.. without realising that we need to keep the oil burning. And there are some stupid and selfish oil distributors dun go around to check if anyone is lacked of oil or not. Sigh!
Geez.. what am i talking now..? does anyone understand what i meant?
Anyway.. it is quite distressing, because Darryl is now out of oil. He denounced.
