Amidst everything that's going on, I managed to find joy through a few things today:
- Wan tan mee (dry wonton noodles) for lunch. It's such a simple dish, but incredibly mouth-watering and delicious.
- In the afternoon, my brother and I had a teary goodbye as he left for the airport to fly interstate. As I'm returning to Melbourne tomorrow, I won't be seeing him till the next time he visits. We're a pretty tight-knit duo, having lived together for so long and knowing that we'll be in different countries tore me. So imagine my surprise when he reappeared 2 hours after we said our farewells! He had decided to take a later flight at night to spend a bit more time with me! What a sweetie :)
- Lik Chuen dropped by unexpectedly at midnight to see me off, and we ended up chatting for a good couple of hours while I packed. There's something undeniably beautiful and special about being able to catch up with an old friend to share laughs and stories, with never ending free flowing conversation.
I can't help but think - it's all going to be okay.
