I'm not sure.

I don't think I've seen him.

Well, that sounds strange.

Mum, let me put your hair up for you.

What for? It's very late now.

But I haven't done it for you for ages.

Okay, let's go in.

It's getting windy here.


can I ask you a question?

If you could go back to the past

and meet Dad again,

would you still marry him?

Of course, I would!

But you know that

he would have an accident later.

Would you still marry him?

Yes, I would.


It's because we were really...

-really very happy together.

You don't have to

give up happiness today

for an unknown future.

That's true.

H34 is taken. How about H36?

Oh, alright.

Please leave your details.

(Indian worker rescued

after 9 days at sea)

(The problems are often easier

than you imagine. )

Do you know

how long this dream will last?

When will we wake up?

When I woke up,

I found myself lying in a lifeboat,

drifting at sea.

In that study center in Taipei,

I sat next to you.

You sat in seat H36 and I sat in H35.

Can I wake up sooner?

(I sit on your left and... )

Excuse me.


Your jacket was on the floor.

Thank you.

Can you do me a favor?


Can you wake me up at half past four?

Alarms are not allowed in here.

But I must wake up at half past four.


Thank you.


No problem.

What are you taking?

Nothing really.

Can I have a look?


Why are there only your pictures?

Well... not really.

It happens to be only my pictures.

Now, you've got company.

Do you always come here for a nap?

Not really.

I work in a restaurant

and I have a two-hour break.

It's too far to go home.

So I come here to kill time.

Doesn't it cost you a lot?

It's alright.

So you're not preparing for exams?

That's really interesting.
