(That Thing I Do)

iPhone 4ever And Ever, Amen

I’m not one who typically writes about events, nor do I write about technology and gadgets per se. But every now and then, comes along an exception. When Maxis conceptualized the launch of the ( pick one: a. much awaited, b. over-hyped, c. revolutionary, d. all of the above)  iPhone 4, it wasn’t to be a typical event […]

The Girl At Breakfast

It’s a weekday morning just like any other ordinary weekday. I decided I would have a hearty breakfast, at one of my favorite breakfast places. As I approach my usual table to have my usual meal and my usual coffee, there you are sitting across my usual spot, as pretty a girl as one could hope […]

Rainbows Make Her Day

I have a friend. She has bad days at work a little too often. On days like these, the would treat herself to a Happy Meal toy, or buy herself a colorful pinwheel. Whee! And then she would smile again. If only I could cheer myself up with colorful plastic trinkets.

Even Stars Grow Weary

You’ve walked with me through falling skies and rising dust,In every step, in you I trust.In cold of night and blaze of day,You stand by me through white and gray.Immaculate, yet humble, you now stand worn,Never once have you left me forlorn,In this realisation I grow teary –Eventually, even stars grow weary

Round Two

I have gained 12 kilos since my lightest. I no longer have as much stamina as I used to, and I no longer feel good being seen in public. What happened? Perhaps I didn’t realise that fitness is a journey and not a destination. Perhaps I got complacent and decided that feasting was deserved and […]

Blind Lover

Last night I had a dream. In this dream, a girl was in love with me. And I was in love with her. Perfectly ordinary scenario, except for the fact that she was blind. I was sad that no matter how good I tried to make myself look, it would mean nothing to her, and […]

Day 5/365: Chocolate Dreams

Every now and then when I close my eyes and the world fades into a blur, I dream a dream of perfect love. Ironic, since I don’t know what perfect love is really, but I am convinced I know what it should feel like; and in my dreams, that’s exactly how it feels like. In every dream, […]

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 […]
