The clock struck twelve and a piercing scream shattered the night. Meilin sat up in bed, her eyes wide, breathing shallow, a look of utter terror upon her face, as the rest of her housemates rushed in.   "Lin, what's wrong?" "Are you alright?" "It's ok, it's ok."   "I'm alright, just..."   Read More...

Chasing Summer
Published on 08-31-2017 09:55 PM
I have so much to say, but never yack. I have no bones, but my spines may crack. I have so much places to take you far and wide, and baby, you won’t even have to pack. What on earth is this about? That is the first question that runs through the back of my mind as I scan the red-colored ca  Read More...

The One from His Kind
Published on 08-25-2017 01:32 PM
The hot air of the beach hit straight to my face, while my body is dehydrated by the sea’s salt. The full moon is light’s supply and I try to bear with the white sand. Probably two or three hours before something happened to me. A candle light dinner is probably the simplest idea you wou  Read More...

“Okay, so are we really going to do this?” Maisaa muttered under her breath, being careful not to step on the sticks scattered on the grass. She glanced behind her back to see Dinie almost tripping on the huge stone sticking out on the ground. She spontaneously grabbed her friend’s  Read More...

The air in the house was gloomy as every tenants of the house were all present upon a single old stature, as if she was giving her last word before she entered her eternal sleep. Everyone seemed restless. The maids, her two daughters and her son, everyone was waiting for the voice of the old woman,   Read More...

The Teapot
Published on 09-01-2017 10:08 PM
“So, is the teapot still chasing you?” I swished around my coffee drink inside my mouth before swallowing. “What’s that?” Gregory shrugged. “You know, the teapot. The one you said wouldn’t leave you alone.” I stared at him long and hard over the rim   Read More...

Once when I was just a little kid living in an apartment in Johor, something strange happened that to this day I could never really explain. I still do remember what happened and how it happened.   I was still in elementary school, and most days I would wake up in the morning and would hav  Read More...

Broken Hate. Such a strong word. But I feel like it’s the prefect word to describe my life. It is not a word that is used to describe things but I’ve heard it so many times that I have become so familiar with it. Everyone around me was always talking but every time the word that stood   Read More...

This has to be a mistake. I was supposed to be attending my St. John Ambulance club meeting and the FIRST one at that too. But....How did this happen? How did I end up in another’s club meeting?

Mangled.  That was the only word for it.  Aina couldn't understand how it happened. One moment she had been on the bed reading, and the next she was standing next to the highway, looking at a crashed car that was mangled beyond belief. The front was crumpled in, the sides looked like the  Read More...

I wish he would give me a second chance. A second chance that’s all. A second chance to take back what I have done towards him. To repay and reflect upon my actions.

The Shed
Published on 09-10-2017 07:32 PM
When I was young and innocent, the shed provided shelter for my friends and I, whenever rains interrupted our outdoor games. It was neither too warm nor too comfortable, with scattered fodder covering the floor and inappropriately arranged rusted tools, but it was sufficient. The sound of rain trick  Read More...

THE HOMELESS GIRL By Sahira Basirudin   I remember the first time I met her. She was sitting alone on the park bench, beneath the cherry tree. She hugged her legs tightly close to her and kept looking at the sky as if she was looking at it for the first time. The cherry blossom was blooming pre  Read More...

Everything was normal yesterday and I have a feeling that everything will take an unexpected turn today. Some could say that they would have seen this coming from miles away but how could I?
