xiaowei and woof at indochine. one final dinner out before i go down under.
hungping holds a torch for me. (do you get the pun? lol. i'm just kidding!)
went out for dinner with my secondary school classmates today at Indochine Aquadisiac. the chats, the laughters, it's kinda refreshing to catch up with individuals who reminds you of the past you once had with them. nolstagia seems to weigh very heavily upon me lately, maybe due to the impending departure.
now's already friday. then it'll be saturday. it's not that i dread going down under; i am looking forward to the new environment, the new peeps i'll meet and new experiences. then i see the ring i've placed back onto my finger and remember you. you didn't ask me to place the ring back but i did. it fits me so well now but the fact remains that you lost yours and deep down inside, i wish you'll get a replica of it.
you asked me not to miss you too much when i'm there. you told me to find a new boyfriend when i'm there. but i think you missed the basic details when i looked at you in the eye. it doesn't matter who i'm with or what i'm doing, you're the person in my heart. i was sorting out my stuff to pack into my luggage and i came across this yellow envelope.
in it was a gold-colored card from marks and spencer. the date was 31st august 2002. i read the content and i fought back my tears. it wrote,
"to my dear lala laopo,
happy birthday and 1st anniversary!
always in your heart,
your merlin laogong"
and you know what, your words did come true. you've always been in my heart, you never left. during the 2 years we were apart, i thought to myself, someone will come along and replace you. it's only now that i realise...
no matter how hard i try,
no matter what i do,
no matter how many guys i have...
you're still the one i run back to.
please... just hold me back in your arms like before.
please... let the last night we spent together not be our last.
please... just say you'll wait for my return.
don't let me go again.
