The Fiver Meme

Got this meme from my colleague, EC. 5 things you have in your bag right now OK, so I have one helluva huge handbag. Believe me, I’ve drifted through using my huge leather Aigner carry-all, but it got so heavy that I stopped using it because I was afraid of breaking the straps. Then it […]

You know you’re getting old when…

You throw/attend a friend’s bridal shower and come home by midnight You have a girls’ night out and can’t stop text-ing your husband and asking about the baby You reminisce about your primary school days- 24 years ago You ask your unmarried friends when their turn is going to be (sounding irritatingly like those relatives […]

Oh painful love

There is a flutter beneath my breast. I am thinking of you- your smile, the feel of your body against mine. The light touch of your ruby-red lips on my cool cheek. Your warm, full-hearted hug when you put your arms around my neck and cling on to me, like there is no tomorrow, like […]

Love from the start

I have known you for 2 years only. But I have loved you from the very first moment I set eyes on you, when you looked back at me and whined gently, searching for comfort within my tired arms. And the memories you have filled my head, heart and soul with in these 2 years […]

Sudden

Musician’s note: My friend and I wrote the lyrics for this song for the Taiwanese pop artiste, Elva. The song was Mandarin to begin with, but they were hoping to break into the English-speaking market, and enlisted our help to do so. So, MM and I came up with these lyrics, definitely on the corny […]

Metaphorically Dead

In your eyes I see the inner fire What a beautiful day to throw away What a beautiful day. Dream tongiht I see myself destroy What a tragical day to go away What a tragical day. Bridge: You see me cry Cry in the rain Cry, cry, cry Chorus: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, […]

To Queenie

I found an old letter I had written a long time ago. It was very short. I fingered the yellow page, torn out from a filofax, and remembered how young I was. In mind, that is. I was 15 then, and very into the whole karma/reincarnation/rebirth/afterlife thing. But I also believed in God- and reading […]

Writing Project: Chapter 14

He never stopped running. In the distance, he could hear the quick sounds of an impending chase: intelligible shouts. He imagined the fierce guards, brandishing their clubs, wielding heavy, fire torches. He remembered the look on the old man’s face: he looked, for once, old and extremely human. An involuntary sense of pity had flooded […]

Witches, Necromancers & Vampires: Day Two

“Do you believe in the afterlife? Or maybe reincarnation?” Ezra was thoughtful as he played with a straw and chewed it contemplatively.  “Don’t ask me things like that first thing in the morning, Ezra. I’m not in the mood for deep thinking today.” “But I want to know. It’s important.” “For fuck’s sake, why? Stop […]

On a gloomy Monday morning

Much has happened. I’m not all too certain now how the last 2 weeks have flown by. A trickery of the mind? I don’t think so. Intervention by the Divine, perhaps. Why do I feel utterly tired, devoid of emotions? Why do I want to lie down and sleep away the hours, dreaming a dream […]
