I don’t appear ashamed

Another free-write. I’m writing for cathartic purposes, this one. A disclaimer, this flash is NOT autobiographical, although I do draw some elements from real life for inspiration. _________________ I don’t appear ashamed,  And truth is I don’t, no matter how women and men try to put those labels on me I refuse to wear. I…

Pink Lipstick Smeared on Teeth

Just a free-writing exercise off a list of prompts I re-discovered from a writing workshop I attended two years ago. Thought I’d share what I came up with in the spur of the moment. Pink lipstick smeared on teeth, she continues caressing his lips with her own in the glow of the dim moonlight. Their…

2017- My Blog Year Roundup

Happy New Year soon-to-be! If you’re living in areas of the globe where you get to experience all the four seasons, I hope you’ve enjoyed shopping for all the Christmas stuff this past week (especially for my female readers; all the limited edition Christmas makeup available). Having cosied yourself with a mug of hot chocolate/…

Say It In Photographs: The Lazy Person’s Meal

If this picture looks dark, it’s because it’s 2.30pm and I am not in favour of too much artificial light in the daytime even if it’s dim. Adding to the shade of this photograph,  the sky is a cloudy drab shade of grey, as it often is during the month of December. It’s also a…

The Power of a Name

On introspect, I’ve come to realise there’s a kind of subtle power in names that often may go unnoticed. Historically, generally speaking, at least according to research done by Reader’s Digest, names are tied into culture and aristocracy bestowed long names onto their children to indicate their high societal status. There’s a reason why sadly,…

My Take on Makeup

I started putting on makeup at about age 11. I was in my mother’s bedroom’s attached toilet, and had been having secret rendezvous with her makeup powder palette for the past week. I remember them being bright colours, pink for the cheeks and colours such as green? Orange-y shades? For the eyes. It was the…

Hello again, my blog followers!

Why I haven’t been active all these months… Its been months since I posted a blog post onto here, and for so long it has been because I haven’t had any subject matters I deemed too important not to post about. For one, I could blog about current affairs, like the slew of sexual allegations…

Of Glasses and Good Matches

-midnight thoughts. A lot of things in life mirror trajectories of romantic relationships, just that we do not realise it.   Sometimes I get the yearning to Change my glasses, the ones I have worn for over 5 years, or even longer than that, not that I recall. There are cat eye glasses. Then more…

Making A Short Film #throwback

We students in the Diploma in Mass Communications had to make a student film last December so that we could graduate, under the educational guise of our Contemporary Short Video Production. It meant we had to select a group member’s script to produce, do storyboarding, plan camera angles, do the casting and everything in between….

I Can’t Remember When Was The Last Time I Posted

This is because I had been studying in my Diploma in Mass Communication last year from May on. Apparently I write when I’m bored or when I’m selectively introverted. It’s not that I’m not writing at all though. I’ve 14 drafts in my WordPress which I refuse to publish for varying reasons. One is too…
