There was one interesting happening when me and my husband walked away from Chatuchak. We crossed the street and reentered the park area which was not less crowded from the market. We walked through this park before when we wanted to go to Chatuchak.
In this tidy and clean park, a lot of people either walked or sat leisurely on the grass field or park benches. We took some pictures and sat a while there. After we were no longer tired, we stood up and wanted to continue our walk to MRT station.
When we continued our walk, a song was played suddenly in that park. We didn’t know where did it come from. The only thing that we know was that song could be heard by everyone in that park. This park probably had loudspeakers on many places so the sound was pretty clear.
It was a very hot afternoon, and it’s getting hotter because there were a lot of people. I was one of these people. Where was I? I was in the middle of a crowd in a shopping center.
Other than me, there was my mom too. The two of us walked through shopping alleys which were full of visitors. A lot of people walked on these alleys and looked at goods which were on display, both inside the shops and outside the shops. We had to be careful not to bump into other people.
We also stopped sometimes to look at goods on display. When we stopped at a clothes store, we tried to find if there’re clothes which were to our liking. The shopkeeper swiftly and kindly offered us clothes which were trending at the time. There was one clothes that I liked but there were no smaller size of it. The one which was available was too big for me. Because there was no interesting item in my eyes, we decided to leave that store.
I was looking at myself in a mirror in a room. I wore a very beautiful white gown. It was my wedding gown. In this dream, I was going to get married soon and was preparing to be dressed up. When I looked in the mirror, I saw two pimples on my face. They were on my cheek and forehead! Oh, no! This day was a very important day to me. I ought to appear my best but those two pimples thoughtlessly appeared on my face. Hopefully with the power of make-up, those pimples can be covered!
Pimples are disliked very much by everyone, aren’t they? When pimples appear, we are hurt. Not only our faces hurt, but our hearts hurt too. Pimples made us not confident. Moreover, when they pop, they will leave scars.
One beautiful afternoon on a light brown sandy beach. The regular sound of waves calmed the hearts of everyone who heard them. The sound of shorebirds from a distance soothed people’s heart even more. Sea breeze that blows slowly gave freshness and uncovered people’s hair. The sun which was about to set gave off warm dusk sunlight to everyone. There were a lot of people on this beach, including me. I was sitting alone on a long bench while I watched the crowds. I saw my students who had graduated at faraway. They were holding some kind of event. They stood around in circle. They sang songs. They danced. They laughed. Not long after that, I saw them taking out items they had brought. They gave those items to one of them. It turned out that it was somebody’s birthday, and they celebrated it for her. All their faces were cheerful and joyful. I was joyful too as I watched their celebration. I was able to feel their happiness even though I was not among them. What a beautiful dream!
