childhood retrospective

Last night, after performing computer system updates, my design computer crashed on me and refused to restart. All my photos are in its hard drive. To top it off, I had just re-formatted the memory card on my camera. No photos. Fortunately, I had taken this photo with my mobile phone yesterday.

This is a person we call the Cendol Man. Cendol is a green, glutinous stringy flour substance that is served with shaved ice, brown sugar syrup and coconut milk. It makes a very delicious and refreshing dessert on a hot day. As a child, I had one nearly everyday after school because there was a Cendol Man right outside the school gates. Many of us will have this memory of running out of class, dropping our sachels, hands digging in our pockets for loose change and asking for an ice-cold sweet bowl of cendol.

That's what we did yesterday. We saw the cendol stand, memories flooding, and we stopped the car and took a 10 minute break from life to have a bowl of cendol and laugh about the good'ol days.

oh yes, its nice to sit back and remember our youth. if only we can somehow go back to that time..where we have no care at all!
But then if given that chance , maybe we wont!
