我買了Scoot的特價機票,HK$4260來回澳洲,不過起飛時間好恐佈,我3am起床、4am的士開車、5am到香港機場、7am起飛、11am到新加坡機場,痴線架!希望之後的澳紐行無咁顛……(當然事與願違)

 

能在新加坡轉機,正常人都嫌麻煩,但我卻引頸期待,只因‧有‧人‧想‧見~!

小學時,我與嘉欣是青梅竹馬,但她移民去了新加坡,我們一直寫信聯繫,近年在fb尋回對方,時隔十幾年,今次終於可以見面了,好開心!

 

嘉欣高高瘦瘦、白白淨淨,一付美人胚子,她的樣子十年無變,只是手腳拉長了,重遇故人,十年時光驚掠,感覺奇妙。

 

當天新加坡陽光普照,下機後我與嘉欣即到Coney Island漫步談心,明明我一夜沒睡,竟也有精力行行行,神奇~!

 

新加坡得天獨厚,陽光燦爛,氣候怡人,我們走在公園內,滿眼翠綠,加上藍天,簡直是完美外景,我不停拉着嘉欣影影影,多謝這位耐心模特~

 

我們又聊起近況,原來嘉欣一來新加坡,就重讀了一年,後來考入師範,還去了西安做交換生,現職中學中文老師,來年結婚,並已置業,衷心祝賀她!

 

我畢業後好幾個月都宅在家,嘉欣笑道:「做咩係屋企做飯團呀?」

嘉欣不愧是老師,什麼也為我安排了:「你,食飯!沖涼!睡覺!」

我行來行去找廁所,被嘉欣發現了,她扁嘴道:「佢又行嚟行去唔瞓覺」

我碌來碌去沒睡好,乾脆起床,嘉欣喜道:「哇,你好叻呀,唔駛鬧鐘都醒到!」

 

哎喲,怎麼回到了幼稚園/小學準則了!?

別人何時認識我,對我的印象,總會停留在那時;嘉欣幼時識我,還當我是幾歲大……

嗯,當了一回小孩,也很有趣啦~

 

我在新加坡只匆匆待了十小時,很高興見到了嘉欣爸、嘉欣媽、還有嘉欣的未婚夫Simon,我們一起在新加坡食好嘢:椰皇、烤餅、咖喱、炒飯、芝士斑蘭蛋糕、炸豆腐……正呀!!謝謝:)

 

嘉欣媽與我媽是舊識,伯母也是十年如一日,外貌完全無變,駐顏有術,美魔女啊~!!

伯母見到我仲開心過我見到佢,伯母發現我吃飯時少碰炒飯、炸物等油膩嘢,笑說:「你同你媽真係一樣,你媽煮嘢清淡,仲要用滾水燙砧板嘛~」

全中!好友即使分隔異地,多年無見,日常小事卻還歷歷在目,母親大人真有個好朋友呢,但願人長久,千里共嬋娟啊。

 

 

I bought a Scoot special price flight ticket, super cheap. Just HK$4260 Hong Kong-Australia, two ways. But the departure time is crazy. I got up at 3am, got in a taxi at 4am, arrived in the Hong Kong airport at 5am, took off at 7am and arrived in Singapore airport at 11am. Just CRAZY!!

I only hope the Australia+New Zealand trip won’t be as crazy as this… (Of course my wish didn’t be granted)

 

A normal passenger would probably don’t like the idea to wait in Singapore for half day before flying to Australia. But I was the exceptional. I am looking forward to go to Singapore because I want to meet someone!

KaYan was my best friend 10+ years ago. But she and her family migrated to Singapore when we were in primary school. We kept writing letters and we found each other on facebook in recent years. I am finally going to meet her in Singapore after decades, very looking forward and happy!!

 

KaYan was tall and slim with healthy pale skin. She was, and still are, a beautiful bonita 10 years ago and now. 10 years flew through me when I met my childhood friend again, amazing!

 

Singapore was sunny. We went to Coney Island for a long walk right after landing. I was amazed I still have energy to walk despite I didn’t sleep much last night.

 

The park was beautiful. Green trees and blue sky made a perfect setting for photos. I kept dragging KaYan for posing and thanks for her patience:)

 

KaYan repeated an academic year when she first came to Singapore. She then got into a college for teachers and even be an exchange student in Xi'an, China. She was a Chinese teacher in secondary school now. And she is going to get marry next year and even bought an apartment. Truly congratulations!

 

I just stuck at home for months after graduation. KaYan laughed and said, ‘Oh, why do you sticking at home and be a rice-ball?’

KaYan was really a teacher and she did arrange everything for me, ‘You, Eat! Take a shower! Go to bed!’

KaYan saw me wondered around for a bathroom and she said, ‘Oh, she keep walking around and didn’t sleep…’

I didn’t sleep well so I just got up and she said, ‘Wow, you did well! You can wake up yourself without an alarm clock!’

 

Oh, how did we back to Kindergarten / elementary school standard!?

The perception to me seemed to depend on when did people know me. Kayan knew me when I was a kid and she still saw me as a kid…

Um, it was kind of fun to be a kid for once…

 

I only stayed in Singapore for a rush 10 hours. I am happy to meet KaYan’s parents and her fiancé Simon. We ate good: Coconut, naans, curry, fried rice, cheese pandan cake, fried tofu… yummy! Thanks:)

 

My mum and KaYan’s mum were old friends. Aunt looked exactly like 10 years ago. Amazing!!

Aunt seems even happier than I when she saw me. She noticed that I didn’t eat much oily food and said in a smile, ‘You are exactly like your mum. Your mum cooks light food and she even cleans the chopping board with hot boiling water!’

She is 100% correct! Daily small details stayed forever for old friends even separated by ocean. My mum really had a good friend and I am happy for her:)
