Just as My Life Has Been

Early evening today, I was to go out to the Orchard area to buy some Japanese yen for my trip to Tokyo. But I stopped myself at the last moment. “Surely there is a money changer here probably at Thomson Plaza,” I thought. I quickly checked the Plaza’s website and found one. I went there only to find the place empty with a makeshift shop in front of it manned by a man and a woman selling something that I don’t remember. Anyway I asked at the information counter if there was any money changer. “They are coming back in August” was the answer. This is just as my life has been. Prepared and failed. Tomorrow I go down to Orchard and come back here to prepare for my late evening flight.
