Then and Now

This is Ryzie now...
on the cusp of adulthood
He will have voting rights in Australia soon

Travelling back alone
So disciplined: his school starts soon and he doesn't miss classes
 even though durians, nasi lemak, roti canai, mee goreng, kong fu chau, char kueh teow is calling, calling

 "all my packs are packed, I'm ready to go, taxi's waiting, uncle's waiting   it's he's outside the door, already I'm so lonesome I could cry"....Leaving on a jetplane
 his sisters and family will be staying behind in KL to continue their holiday here
 one last long lingering look
the door slams
the engine throttles

The next time you see me I will be a young adult!
albeit a handsome one!
