Compliments of the boss.

I still think this place is creepy.

I hate seeing those machines.

Something smells great!

Dinner's almost ready.

I meant you.

Let's skip dinner...

and have dessert now.

Oh, but I think you'll enjoy dinner more.

You've been working too long

for my husband.

You're starting to talk like him.

I have to stir the sauce.

I love it when you talk like that!

Seiko, the sauce will be ruined

if I don't stir it.

That's okay.

I like my sauce medium-ruined.

Well, that was delicious, darling...

as always.

Did you have enough?

I might have room for something more.

I made chocolate mousse.

Oh well, there's room for that too.

I'll get some more wine.

Okay, darling. You're the boss.

Oh, wait a minute.

Actually, you're not the boss.

Oops, sorry darling.

Come on, get the mousse and hurry back.

Oh, I like this.

Let's turn it up a bit, okay?

The neighbors won't mind, will they?

I have only one neighbor. She won't mind.

You don't look like your father at all,

you know?

You still don't have a TV?

What do you do when you're alone?

I sleep.

But how do you know

what's going on in the world?

I already know.

There's always war.

You are so cynical, darling.

Kiss me.

Are you drunk?

Why? You gonna take advantage of me

if I'm drunk?

You still have to eat your mousse.


No, I don't know you.

But I know why you're here.

You are a little bit early.

Come worship first.

I'll be with you later.

Did you pray?

Why not?

I see.

You came here for this, I believe.

Everything you want is inside there.

The ticket, the money, the documents.

I'll send you more money...

when you're in Phuket.

Your life now depends on it.

Lizard's contact number is inside.

Yes, from now on...

he's the one you'll have to contact.

Any problem...

contact Lizard.

Remember, Lizard.

Only Lizard.

He's your man.

Your only contact with the past.

Okay, I'll take care of it.

Have a good life.

My father was.

Open it!

What's up?

Anyone hear me?


What's up?

Excuse me.

Kyoji Hamamura!

I can't believe it! It's really you!

Do I know you?

Know me?

Don't you remember me?

Oh! I'm hurt!


We went to school together!

Really? The same school?

You have such a bad memory!

Come on...

- Not exactly. - Where you headed?

I have to go and meet someone.

But you're meeting me!

It's a lot more exciting!

You don't look too happy to see me.

Well, I'm a bit busy.

You really don't remember?



You haven't seen me for fifteen years...

and you tell me you're too busy to chat?

So how are you?

I can't believe that of all places

we meet again on this ship.

Even the sea can seem so small.


Yes! Now you remember?

And how is your brother?

Married? Kids?

To be honest I still don't think

we know each other.

But you are Kyoji Hamamura, right?

Yes, but...

From Osaka, yes?

Yes. But now I live in Macau.

Macau? Wow! Great.

We went to school together?

Yes. Now you remember?

Those were the days.

Sneaking off to read manga

on the way to school.

- In Osaka? - Yep.

I never went to school in Osaka.

I don't think I am who you think I am.

You're Kyoji Hamamura!

Maybe you know another

Kyoji Hamamura that looks like me.

How could that be?

But I remember you...

Really, you got the wrong guy.

No, no. I'm sure it's you.

I still don't think we know each other.

But you are Kyoji Hamamura, right?

Yeah, but...

I'm sure it's you.

How are your kids?

Are they wearing braces yet?

Look, I don't know you.

Must be my mistake.

I told you.

Sorry about that. So long.

He is among the most well known and influential of Thai writers. Prabda has been prolific, having written over 20 books of fiction and nonfiction in ten years, designed over 100 book covers for many publishers and authors, translated a number of modern western classics such as Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita and Pnin, all of J.D.
