"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...

Trash

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...

In A Blink of An Eye
Published on 09-04-2017 12:37 PM
            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...

12th bead round the neck
Published on 09-03-2017 02:55 PM
The day was cold. The woman in her eighties inched towards the only window in the room. Shivered in the frigid dawn, she breathed the suffocating stale air which she had enough of. She took a glance through the window - judging from the growing flock of clouds, the snowfall would only be heavier. &l  Read More...

The Common Sense of Eid
Published on 08-25-2017 09:19 PM
MARIA If I could cast a spell that would turn my best friend, Zachary, into any other species on earth, I would make him into a piranha. He ate like one. He could gobble up food meant for three – in three minutes – and then demanded for more. He had told me with his usual self-deprecatin  Read More...

Chai.
Published on 08-25-2017 09:21 AM
I hate chai. Chai is an Indian staple beverage. It is tea leaves boiled in water then sugar and milk is added to the dark brown liquid and stirred vigorously in small glasses fit for a child. An average chai drinker in India would consume at least ten glasses of chai every day, night and during all   Read More...

Loss
Published on 09-08-2017 07:56 PM
There was never a clear understanding, in my life, what loss truly meant.  I cursed when I lost my wallet the day I had my biggest job interview. Tears were shed when I lost my phone on the bus after a five hour long journey from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur. When my fish died from overfeeding, I   Read More...

Don't be surprised when your mind comes to life. I blinked and winced at the sudden increase in brightness. The morning had arrived and it was time to get out of bed. I looked around, my eyes darting from one corner of the room to the other. Something was missing. I called out for it only to br re  Read More...

The Agent of the Devil

Normally if I were to plan a murder I would not consider this night. Especially when the demonic auras are dancing wildly. Just staring at it caused my brain to melt like ice. Surely the date could be changed? Maybe tomorrow or next week? But, of course, it has to be today. The beauty of the night w  Read More...

Cry
Published on 09-12-2017 10:03 PM
I cry easily these days. I shed tears while I watched a cat nursing its young, dabbing the tears away as they fall more when she licked her kitten with tender care. I cried seeing an old couple walk with their hands linked, holding each other for support.  Tears flowed freely down my cheeks w  Read More...

Reminiscent

The train station wasn’t as crowded as it has always been. Especially on a serene morning, it would have been packed with workers rushing to work, pushing past each other and fighting for the same space. Gladfully, there was only her and a beggar at the platform. With the train ticket printe  Read More...
