4 Jun 2021 – Feeling Nostalgic
Memory believes before knowing remembers ―
Tue: Happy Bday Morten, a charming&gracious x-bro-in-law who I have known since he was 14 and I, 18, and we share many fond memories from then! Today he is 67, a father of 3, grandfather of 4? a Chair@UNIS and a reputable Professor@UiT Department of Geosciences. Caught up with him in Aug/Sep2019 Tromsø/Norway and also the last I saw of Ellen, may she RIP.
Grocery shopping@Giant/Tampines~S$120 with~S$4SenSave. Trying out these new products and pleased with them, SugarlessChocolateS$7.55 and Käji-IndividuallyWrappedS$5.90.
At one of the fruit-shops near the PosB/BedokCentralBranch, delighted to find fresh ChineseBayberry/MyricaRubra,Yangmei杨梅S$6/400g always thought them to be berries, but just found out that they are fruits grown on trees. Have not had them since the 2009 HKG-trip!! Appreciations to AnnaM for this info – Corbezzolo in Italian and Sardinia is the main Italian county where they produce such honey for they have plenty of trees… They use honey on the traditional seadas, dessert, stuffed pastry like raviolo with cheese and dip fried served with honey on steaming hot pastry so that it trickles down.
Wed: Happy 72Bday KK, one of my oldest friends, somehow it is difficult to image knowing someone who is not a relative for nearly 7decades and still friends! Took out my last piece of Gravlaks from the freezer to celebrate a Bday-lunch, tkx for his yummy NasiUlam and salad. Water still dripping outside eventhough the rains have stopped hours ago, checked all the floors above me (8-12) and saw that the water was coming from the roof. Called & forwarded pix to MP-TownC and hope that they can resolved this problem.
What do we call this moment? A serendipity mixed into a nostalgia mixed into a deja vu mixed into an epiphany ―
