For the last few nights I have been dreaming of my late FIL and I told my girl about my dreams, her grandfather was around the house, doing some renovations here and there. Funnily enough, I was not a bit disturbed by these dreams. In fact I had another dream of him last night, this time not in my house but in my old childhood's house. He and another man was repairing something again in the house and suddenly the house was filled with water due to some pump leakage or what. I was shouting away... "Water! Water!" and that was all I could remember. What does this dream depict?
My son just blogged about his grandfather.... at this time of the year, our house will be filled with mandarin oranges, soft drinks, biscuits and their favorite fish and prawn crackers. During this time, his grandfather would be busy frying the crackers and putting them into big tins for his son and his grandkids to savor during Chinese New Year.
But not this year... in fact, there is nothing in my house yet. No drinks, no mandarin oranges and no fish nor prawn crackers in the kitchen. I am waiting for my 2 strong fellas to come back, to help me buy and carry these heavy stuff. This year it will be different... maybe it will be a quiet affair. Everyone seems to be missing someone, in one way or another.
