I met her on a warm summer day at the park. I brought my dog along for a walk, and she could not handle her excitement at meeting Felix. "Ohmygosh!!!" she squealed, bouncing on her heels. "He's so cute!! Can I pet him?" "Yeah, sure," I replied, smiling. She knelt to the floor and ruffled his fur. Fe  Read More...

Endling
Published on 09-13-2017 02:49 AM
For as long as I can remember, I was raised in hiding. I know nothing of the light from the sun; living by the light of oil lamps, candles and the moon. We had moved in the darkness, behind whispers and cloaked in hoods, my parents never told me why we had to live this way; the nomadic lifestyle wit  Read More...

The New Bespectacled Hero
Published on 08-22-2017 10:43 PM
It was a bright sunny Monday morning. Tap tup. Tap tup. I tiptoed towards my midnight blue car and all that I could feel was eagerness instead of Monday blues. I unlocked my car and drove towards the nearest train station. Shah Alam station. Surprisingly, I was late to catch the train but as I sat a  Read More...

  25 years in the zoo, 10 years in the cage. The zoo. The animals. The tourists. It is not cancer, nor is it curable. Everyone takes it as self-diagnosed problem. Only he has the ability to understand the zoo; the zoo that alleviates, the zoo that calms and the zoo that decimates. Listening   Read More...

Pondering

Ember Peaks

Sirens were wailing in the distance. Parents and their children evacuated in chaos. In shock, she sprints towards to where crowds gathered. She heaves heavily as she tries to get a glimpse of the pale cadaver lying motionlessly behind by the barricade tape. “Please, just one look.” She c  Read More...

Traitor, I Am
Published on 08-30-2017 01:00 PM

I could hardly believe my eyes when I was in contact with it in person. My breathing had gone ragged, while my heart was beating so fast I was afraid that it might jump out and leave my body. My legs were trembling, while I just stood there, glued to the floor, unable to move, not even an inch, afra  Read More...

Bringer of Bad Luck

I cried in front of him. I thought I could be someone that can live happily just like everyone else. I tried to find it but it was unreachable. Nothing can undo what’s had been done.

One day I woke up suddenly with chills. The room was freezing cold. Everything was still and quiet. Not a sound was to be heard except for the blowing of the winter wind outside and the slight taping of the tree branch outside my room’s window. I got up and put on my black sweater for some war  Read More...
