1st June 2006
Wow!...it's june already...haha...that's pretty fast!..next month i will be going for my Orientation Camps in NUS, yay!..haha..I woke up a couple of hours ago..haha..had breakfast(as usual..duh!), then went out to the guesthouse's garden to take some photos...it's so pretty here!...but then again, somehow i can't seem to be able to find a nice angle/composition to take photos of the garden...*shrugz*..This morning it was confirmed by the guesthouse owner that the trees in her garden, which i suspected to be cherry trees are indeed cherry trees! That's just awesome!...imagine baking in a house like this, where you do not need to go out to buy cherries, but you can just pick them off the trees that you have in your very own backyard!...wow!..
The guesthouse owner shared a little with us about her history too...The house had been bought by she and her husband(who passed away 5 years ago) primarily because he fell in love with the garden. And she revealed that in when he was still alive, his occupation had been that of an eye-doctor. My guess is that he loved the garden because the colour green's supposed to be very soothing for the eyes, and maybe that was of high importance to him..also it would have been good ti be able to come home to a nice garden to relax after a hard day's work..=)oh, and her husband liked knives too!..there are like 5 or 6 knives on the piano, one being what looks like a persian scimitar..cool!..haha..and i must tell you!, the piano is made in 1795!, and ir purportedly one of the first few, if not the first piano in France!...gosh!...a 211 year old piano!...i wish i had that at home, and of course i wish that i knew how to craft music on the piano keys..the lady also told us that prior to running the guesthouse, her previous occupation had been that of an artisan at the local stained-glass workshop. So cool right?..haha...
Oh well, i didn't sleep much last night..woke up at 2am to send an sms..then after that when i went back to sleep, i had 2 dreams that were....ermm, well, one was pretty okay, dreamt of going with weizhen to toa payoh to have breakfast or tea, and the weird thing about that was that in my dream we took a bus...usually she drives..yea...usually it's either by car or cab when we meet up to go places for food...so it was kinda queer to have dreamt of the mode of transport being a bus..the second dream was a nightmare...i dreamt of some monster trying to get at me, and the monster was in this case a serpent...but somehow i wasn't all losing...i kinda fought back against it, and shoved Kiwi(the shoe polish) down its throat...twas kinda freaky because i saw its eyes in the dream..and of all things about a living person or animal, the most beautiful, or most frightening things are always the eyes...yea...so i was kinda freaked out...i always have a fear of nights, even back at home in Singapore, at nights my whole house is always lit with lights, because i will feel frightened if its dark...haha...so funny, i carry knives, gadgets and all, and i don't fear much else, but the dark...chicken-hearted junpei/nick...
Oh well, i think europe's a beautiful and very interesting place, it has so much history in it!...Singapore has just too little years behind it..well, but i'm a little bored of europe already..maybe the next place i would want to go will be to Africa? and maybe to Japan-Seki city, the town where swords are crafted...gosh, that would be such an interesting experience!...
haha...till tomorrow!...gotta pack my luggage!...taking the morning train back to Paris tomorrow morning!
