Turning back time....  

Has any one of ya been haunted by something ya did in da past and it has been bugging you ever since? Little gecko has..., sometimes, he wishes he could just go back in time and do something about it to seek a closure....

Little gecko does not live wid mama gecko. However, he visits her on a bi-monthly basis. Back years ago, mama gecko has a Philippino maid known as Helen. She's great and a heaven sent, and little gecko likes her very much. Like every other maid that came to S'pore, Helen too had a story to tell... Mother of 2 kids, husband who ran away etc... such is da plight of many of da bottom rung foreigners who come to our shores to seek a better life for themselves and their loved ones...

Little gecko dropped by mama gecko's house one day to bring mama gecko out for dinner. It has been about a month since little gecko last visited mama gecko as he had been busy at work. As mama gecko wasn't back yet, little gecko decided to raid da fridge for some munchies. Sitting in da fridge was a new bar of chocolate that little gecko has never seen before. Just as little gecko removed da aluminium foil, Helen appeared and started a casual conversation wid little gecko. And so together we chatted and took a walk in da garden.

One bite of da chocs and... eeewww..., little gecko fed da balance to da family dog, Ricky.

"Oh, not nice nice ah?" Helen enquired,

It was only during da car journey back from dinner dat mama gecko revealed dat Helen had just come back from da Philippines to attend to some urgent family matters and had brought back that bar of chocolate as a gift......

Little gecko was stunned at da revelation... He did something totally unacceptible but didn't know how to make amends then. Soon however, Helen returned again to da Philippines never to return...

Sometimes in da quietness of da nite, little gecko would recall dat incident vividly... how he chatted wid Helen in da garden, how he ate dat 1 piece of choc, how he fed Ricky a few pieces of it... all in Helen's presence... Now dat she is gone, it seems there's no way to seek a closure to da matter anymore....

Sometimes in life, we intentionally or unintentionally hurt da folks around us. Do any of ya have similar stories to tell too? Relationship bonds are a fragile thing. If ya have da chance to make amends den do so; sometimes there's no second chance in life...

Ajish!! Long time no hear!! How time flies! Even before little gecko has a chance to visit ajish in phuket, he is now in da philippines instead :)

Unfortunately, there's no way to track her down now cos little gecko only knows her by Helen and none of us remembers da maid agency dat we had used previously.

Anyway, little gecko prays dat all's well wid Helen and her family. Little gecko also hope all's well wid Ajish too!! :)

Well yea... sometimes it is these kind of incident that we learn from in a painful way... these are unexpected... froggy made such mistakes too. About doing something and regretted later.
There was once a friend of mine called froggy out for makan. Froggy was too engrossed with net game and that he told a lie to his friend that he was too busy and can't meet. Then after that he found out that this friend specially came back from overseas and wanted to pass froggy a present. But then it was too late... after froggy realised that, friend has already flown back.
Froggy was so remourseful after that... It is like a slap in the face so hard that froggy woke up finally.

Awww, now dat sounds bad... but at least froggy's friend knew froggy's bz dat day. Whereas in gecko's case, gecko had unwittingly offended someone dear wid his rash act. Tis something little gecko will have to live wid forever... *wails*
