A weird dream (June 2021)

On 10 June 2021, I had really weird dream.

In my dream, I was going for breakfast with 2 of my Teaching Fellow colleagues, LG and GC. We went to a restaurant at Taman Tasek, Johor Bahru. GC was driving while I and LG followed in her car. On the way to the restaurant, we stopped somewhere for ice-cream. LG and GC ordered the regular size of the ice-cream, while I ordered the large size as I really like ice-cream. The ice-cream was really good, so I took my time to enjoy it.

When we arrived at the restaurant, LG and GC had finished their ice-cream but I still haven't finished mine. The restaurant was located at the 1st floor and there were many customers. As many restaurants don't allow outside food, I didn't want to bring in my ice-cream. I suggested that LG and GC enter the restaurant first to get a table while I continue having the ice-cream in the car, and they agreed.

A few minutes later, I finished the ice-cream and went into the restaurant. I looked around the restaurant, but LG and GC were nowhere to be seen. I then went from one table to another and I still couldn't find them. I couldn't call or message them as I had forgotten to bring out my phone from home. I thought that LG and GC might be playing a prank on me. There was an empty table, so I sat there and waited for them to show up.

After waiting for some time, LG and GC still didn't appear. I was getting hungry, so I didn't continue to wait and I ordered my food. When I was about to finish my meal, I suddenly noticed that LG was sitting at a table not too far away from my table. I immediately approached him. LG told me that he had been sitting there and waiting for me all the while. Strangely, I didn't notice him at all before that and he too didn't notice me, even though our tables were at obvious locations.

I then asked LG where was GC. However, he said that GC didn't join us for the breakfast at all and that it was just the 2 of us right from the beginning. That sounded so unbelievable as I was so sure that GC was with us earlier and she was the one driving. For some reason, I was feeling very tired at that time, so I thought that I might be hallucinating things. I walked out of the restaurant to see if things were real, only to find that GC's car was no longer there.

I got so confused that I woke up from my dream.


In reality, throughout my Teaching Fellowship at NUMed, I often go for lunch and dinner with my colleagues. However, that ended after the MCO 3.0 was implemented on 7 May 2021, where dining in at restaurants was no longer allowed. I really miss going out with my colleagues, which is probably why I had this dream.

Interestingly, I and my colleagues never had breakfast together. We also never went to Taman Tasek, although we passed by the place several times. The only restaurant I know at Taman Tasek is George & Dragon Café, which I tried only twice. George & Dragon Café is located at the ground floor rather than the 1st floor, and it doesn't look like the restaurant in my dream at all.
