Just You And Me

I felt a tingle down my spine when my better other mumbled something similar. That he was tired, knackered to his knees of the routineness. We both thought of breaking away just for awhile and going for the honeymoon we never had. Destination is not of utmost importance now, but solitude is. We could be amongst the clouds on a mountain or swim with the tropical fish under the clear blue sky or hum with burung kenari biru by the breezy countryside or chase each other around a lake listening to the cackles of a family duck. We could.

But as we were raking our brains to match the destination with our strained budget simultaneously humming to Zee Avi, instances of "the honeymoon we never had" came back to play. You see, 14 years ago we did have our honeymoon in the exotic land of Sarawak. Booked our tickets, packed our bags, planned our itinerary ...along with 14 other family members! Instead of a honeymoon, it became a familymoon. The moment one family member heard about the cheap package we acquired, everyone was interested to go and so the snow ball effect took place and before we could shout out Yay, the rest of the clan was already at the airport screaming Hurrah!

Paparappapaaaaaa...and instead of just "you and me", Mak, Ayah, Yeop, Nyah and spouses, Kak Yong and family, Opah , Makngah and Pakngah were also lying on their backs on Damai beach feeling the water streaming and dreaming...together . It was fun as well as hilarious to think of having almost the entire clan on our honeymoon. We chased after the Frisbee, bury our little toes in the sand and laughed in chorus. Despite the overloaded merriment, there were always those times when we'd still be in our own world, huddled in the little pocket of time somehow. To see only what we chose to see and to listen only what we chose to listen. We maneuvered ourselves amidst the chattering hordes and glided gleefully away from the rest by just speaking with our eyes before breaking a smile every now and then. Amusing.

Gave our piggy bank a shake and we came to a consensus that the honeymoon trip has to wait for a little while longer. As for now, watching mega movie in our living room with a plate of keropok goreng would have to suffice. Paparappaaaaa, paparappapapaaaaa....



Thanks so much Hazlin

hey, not you alone okay.. I pun tak sempat berhoneymoon dulu, pulak2 dah ter'ada' baby that time.. anyways.. true what Kitchen Guardian kata, togetherness is important.. what's the use of having a Bali honeymoon when the two of you are not 'entirely' there? Know what I mean? hehe.. Eh, my son's birthday is coming soon.. Bulan May, ingat nak bagi special punya cake for him.. Nanti I order boley??

Wiz said...

Apai - Togetherness must be accompanied with beautiful scenery and some quality alone time. Must have that one day and go for a treat just the two of us. Woo hooo. Want to double date?
