What melodious music to my ears it was. The chiming and ringing of the wedding bells and the delicate hands of the pianist pressing against the keys to play the wedding march. My loving family and friends were here to witness this grand occasion and for the very first time in my life, no worries had  Read More...

"Please, can you come over?" The feminine voice that spoke upon his answering of the call was familiar, but the pleading tone was not. "What is it?" he asked, not bothering to hide the irritation that seeped into his tone. "Please," was all she said in a quiet whisper, one just a tad louder than an   Read More...

The Bittersweet
Published on 08-30-2017 07:18 PM
A second class lower degree with a CGPA of 2.425 is nothing to be proud of to most people; why, to some it even means nothing short of embarrassing and is something to be ashamed off. Although I would have loved it if I have had the opportunity to graduate with a higher class and CGPA, the degree I   Read More...

Framed?
Published on 09-04-2017 10:42 PM
Shots! Shots! Shots!   I looked over my shoulder at the commotion and saw a bunch of guys cheering on a group of girls to take more shots. To be honest, half of them look wasted and about to pass out. I grinned and took one last finishing gulp of my drink.   “Ugghh! Those girls are s  Read More...

To A Stranger

"I've always wanted to go to Tiffany's, did you know?"    Elliot was puttering around the room, and made a half-hearted sound of interest at the question. Mara giggled to herself, arranging the IVs around her with a huff of distaste.    "Like that pretty woman from  Read More...

‘Do humans understand each other? Write me an intriguing essay of at least a thousand words, and light-mail it to me by twelve midnight next Tuesday. It contributes to fifty percent of this semester. Late light-mails will not be taken into account. Good luck.’ A whoosh followed as the ho  Read More...

The Facility

What did they inject? My head felt heavier than usual. I tugged my arms, pulling against the restraints. The icy metal cut into my wrist, sending jolts of shivers up my spine. I squinted at the red characters on the top right corner of the room, willing my eyes to focus. The pounding in my head inte  Read More...

I watched as Mr Tee loaded baskets of ‘rotten’ vegetables – the ones we couldn’t sell for the day – onto a wooden trolley. Green beans yellowed at the tips, bug eaten sawi, limp looking kangkung, all destined for the large dumpster behind the wet market.  &l  Read More...

            The lights were still red. I glanced at my watch. 7.05 p.m. I’m late, I thought. I hope Mom doesn’t mind me being 30 minutes late. I placed my sling bag on the ground as I stood on the pavement, waiting for the lights to turn green.   &  Read More...
