(That Thing I Do)

Day 22: Pancakes

He who goes to bed hungry dreams of pancakes. Or so the saying goes. And if your dream were a good dream, you’d dream this pancake. Little medallion pancakes with near everything you could want. Strawberries. Slivered almonds. Raisins – both dark and light. Bananas. Ice cream. And most importantly, peaches. Just gotta love peaches. You […]

I Will Not

If you merely consider me an option,Nothing more than an afterthought;I will not prioritize you when you have nobody else. If you only speak to me because you need to be heard,When your echoes fall silent when I need to know you’re there;I will not be there for you when you drown in solitude. If […]

Thanksgiving

I am thankful that I am not as fat as I used to be, though that’s not to say I shouldn’t put down that donut. I am thankful that my job doesn’t suck. Yet. I am thankful that where I live food is good, cheap and plentiful. Or perhaps I shouldn’t be, because it’s making […]

I promise

I promise to come to work on time. I promise to drink responsibly. I promise to not spend heartbreaking amounts of money on photography. I promise to not be such a huge iPhone fanboy. I promise to call more often. I promise to treat you with more respect. I promise to exhibit more kindness towards the people around […]

Day 49/365: Going Down

I end my day at work every day when I step int into the lift. Down I go, out of the office. Away from everyday droning. Down I go. A reminder that I’m not really escaping from the routine rat race. Disposable income. Down.Energy levels. Down.Motivation. Down.Free time. Down.Fitness. Down.Mood. Down. Down.

Day 54/365: In The City

Five years ago, I moved to the city in search of a life. It began on the most ironic note; I signed away my life in exchange for some money. Hardly enough, I keep toiling. Hoping that one day I’ll get back my soul, and sell it again to the highest bidder. By night, I […]

The Malaysian Definition

Some like their sambal sweet, some like it spicy. Some like their rice starchy and moist, some like their rice in loose grains. Some like their burgers with chili sauce, some like it with mustard. Some prefer chicken, some prefer beef. Some feel pleasure with extreme spiciness, some feel pain. That’s the beauty of being Malaysian. We don’t […]

How Not To Conduct A Food Review

Once upon a time, there was a man. One day this man went to a restaurant and ordered some food. He liked the food very much, and took pictures of it. He then went home, posted up the pictures on his website and wrote all sorts of wondrous things about it for people to read. […]

Baskin’ In Chocolate Glory

Growing up, there was one day I really looked forward to every year, and that is Christmas. I could take 364 days in a year, roll it into one, and it couldn’t even hold a candle to the awesomeness of that one magical day. It’s a day where I get showered with the things I […]

For Love Should Be Effortless

I remember the day the iPad 2 was released in Malaysia. I heard stories of throngs of people queuing up outside stores for hours, just to be among the first to own the hallowed gadget. My desire for the device had not been a very well-kept secret. As much as I lusted for that magical […]
