Trip and Dream

I am sorry for being so quiet these days. I just came back from a getaway or rather an eating trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah. Thanks to my Yee Yee (mum's sis) for all the good food and also, the quality time spent together. I really appreciate it!:)

Since there're too many photos on food, I'll have to push back my posts on all the awesome food I had in Sabah. For now, I just want to write about a dream I had back in Sabah.

I had wanted this dream since last November, the day when my Gong Gong left me for a better place. Yes, he finally came to me in my dream.

That night, I slept quite early after pampering my stomach with loads of food. It's quite difficult to sleep at first but I still manage to "faint" on the bed as I was too tired then. I have no idea why I always woke up in the middle of the night while I was in Sabah. So, like the past few nights, I woke up, looked around, had a drink and back to sleep.

This time, I tossed here and there. I just couldn't get myself to sleep but when I finally did, I dreamt a lot. The one and only one that I can remember was a dream about my Gong Gong.

I was walking into a building (Gong Gong's "new house"?) when I saw an old man painting the wall of the building. I didn't pay much attention to that man until he turned around and faced towards me. He's my Gong Gong! He had changed quite a bit from the last time I saw him. He had lost a bit of weight. His face was a bit pale. His skin was fairer. His hair was like the one he had back in his 60s.

He waved at me and I was shouting "Gong Gong!". I ran towards him and hugged him. Not long after that, I bursted into tears. While crying, I said something which I couldn't remember what it was. Being the always kind Gong Gong, he comforted me and patted my back. He didn't say anything. He just hugged me tight like what I did to him at that time too. I managed to mumble something, again I couldn't remember what it was, before this dream was shattered into pieces.

I was so happy that I could see my Gong Gong once again. I haven't seen him for quite a while. Seriously, I miss him so much. Once in a while, his image would flash through my mind. Or, whenever I do something which he did with me before he left, I would remember him. I regret for not spending more time with Gong Gong.

Gong Gong, take care there and I do hope to see you in my dream again...
