Second-Hand Stories

Anyone who came across this blog might have read about my crush on a guy at office. He used to have a girl friend before. His closed friend told me the reason they broke up. It was because his ex-girlfriend had a new guy while she was with him. They then broke up. However, she eventually stopped her relationship with another guy and went back to talk to be a friend with the guy I liked. And I just heard that they might be back to be an item. I don’t know the rumour will be true or not. I know only that I almost get over him. Right now, my special feeling for him has dropped to 10-20%. I believe that I will be better in time.

Being with Amélie

You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie. Tell us which one it is — and what happens to you while you’re there.
Fourth Wall | The Daily Post

I love quite numbers of movie. So it’s quite hard to pick just one. Anyway, I think I would like to be in “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain” if I could choose to spend a day inside one film. I would be Amélie’s best friend, and I would go with her to solve other people’s issues. I would be able to speak and understand French so well too. She and I would share some inside jokes, and I hope that she would miss me when I return to this world after one day.

Tea for Two

A lively group discussion, an intimate tête-à-tête, an inner monologue — in your view, when it comes to a good conversation, what’s the ideal number of people?

Daily Prompt:Counting Voices

I don’t mind many people in a group conversation. However, I think two people will effectively get to understand each other if they are willing to open up themselves. More than two people sometimes make someone nervous so they might not speak their mind. Somebody may be more comfortable to open their heart when there are only two person in discussion. No one will come between a couple when they hold their eyes and hearts for each other. In conclusion, my ideal number of people is two.

Picture you upon my knee
Just tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me alone

I always love eating a piece of bread spread by Milo/Ovaltine powder. After spreading powder on bread, I would wait for air to humidify powder so it would be sticky which I like it that way.

Speaking of one thing that I won’t eat is cucumber because I truly hate its smell.

Daily Prompt: Curve Balls

When was the last time you were completely stumped by a question, a request, or a situation you found yourself in? How did you handle it?

Maybe a few weeks ago when I was asked about that guy I had one-side feeling for. My friend directly asked me whether I had special feeling for him or not. I was just stunned and said nothing. I knew I handle it badly. However, it was my weakness that I couldn’t lie when someone really asks me. Anyway, I had another friend near me that time and she helped my by directing our conversation to another subject. I was therefore able to avoid more difficult questions.

Daily Prompt: Why, Thank You?

What’s the best (or rather, worst) backhanded compliment you’ve ever received? If you can’t think of any — when’s the last time someone paid you a compliment you didn’t actually deserve?

Daily Post

Last month, I visited my mom’s aunt who kept telling me that I was very cute when I was a kid. She spoke so often that I felt like my grown-up version kind of failed her expectation. I didm’ think she meant to do that, however her compliments made me feel that way.

Daily Prompt: Tunnel Vision

You’ve been given the ability to build a magical tunnel that will quickly and secretly connect your home with the location of your choice — anywhere on Earth. Where’s the other end of your tunnel?

Daily Post

My city is well known for its heavy traffic jams during rush hours. That’s why I truly want the other end of my tunnel to be my office. Since I don’t have to wake up so early in the morning and I don’t have to spend too much time on roads. Also, I can go back to my home to have lunch, take a nap and travel back to the office. This magical tunnel would be my most favourite invention, I’m pretty sure of it.

We often capture strangers in photos we take in public. Open your photo library, and stop at the first picture that features a person you don’t know. Now tell the story of that person.

They came to this beach to play football together as they just finished their re-union party. They decided that they would like to recall their after-class activity when they were students. The beach wasn’t far from their old school so it was good for them to be there again.

Back to Life

After an especially long and exhausting drive or flight, a grueling week at work, or a mind-numbing exam period — what’s the one thing you do to feel human again?

Taking a long sleep on my own bed.



Dust in the Wind

I liked the title of today post from Daily Prompt which asked us about the bucket list before we become dust in the wind.

Have you made your bucket list? Now’s the time — write about the things you want to do and see before you become dust in the wind.

To be honest, I hadn’t known about this type of list before joining the WordPress blog community which somebody started to talk about their bucket list when a new year has begun. It didn’t mean I don’t have that kind of list. But I just wanted to say I had no idea that the list was called bucket list in English (as English is my 2nd language). Therefore when some bloggers talked about the bucket list, I needed to look at their posts and tried to understand what was the meaning of this list. And Yep, finally I knew. So I shouldn’t have had any problem with trying to reply to today’s question from Daily Post. But actually it was kind of difficult job to list all things I would like to succeed before I leave this world behind. I think I might be able to come up with 3 items for the list.

1. Being able to communicate in Japanese efficiently.
(I used to study Japanese language at the basic level about 15 years ago but I almost forget all of them right now. Hopefully, I can drive myself to start learning this language again.)

2. Travel to these places:
– New Zealand (This country’s remarkable scenery and landscape has drawn me in since I was younger. Wish someday I will be able to be there)
– Hokkaido, Japan (To see the flower fields and eat a lot of famous yummy food)
– Yellowstone National Park, USA (I first noticed this park on a movie called 2012 which it had the eruption scene. Nope, I didn’t want to have that kind of experience like in the film but I was just interested in the park’s unique geography)

3. Having a book or two talking about my travel experience.
(I think this item is the hardest one on the list but I might be able to do that if I can self-publish or make it as an electronic book, Maybe?)

Umm, I think that’s all for now.
