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

Daily Post

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: 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.


Edge of the Frame

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.

My heartbreaking is coming soon

In earlier blog posts a few months ago, I’ve mentioned one guy that I was attracted to. However, I haven’t had that strong feeling towards him anymore because there is another guy entering to my life. I’ve never thought of this new guy in the romantic way before even though we have been working together in the same department for almost 4 years. He is a good looking man, and he has broken up with his girlfriend for a while. Still, I saw him as just another co-worker who happened to not close to me at all. I also heard that I’m not his type.


Nevertheless, I never believed that only one hour could change my attitude for him. It started from the time I accidentally found his Facebook via our mutual friends. I liked his set of cover photos so I complimented him when I met him at office. I’d like to see his works more so I decided to send request to be his Facebook friend. It was alright for me if he rejected my request. Anyway, he accepted my friend request and he also sent message to say hello to me which I didn’t think he would do that. And we ended up talking to each other for an hour. At first, I thought he would just drop a greeting message to me but we could find other topics to talk to.

After that one hour conversation, I felt something in my heart and I wanted to talk to him again. I therefore said hello to him via Facebook messanger and we had another an hour talk. I believed that I just saw him in a different light. I meant he is a good looking man whom everyone generally like. But I’m a kind of girl who tends to fall for someone possessing the same interest as me. And it seemed that he has potential to be someone like that.

And how have I known that my heartbreaking is coming soon? Because after that 1st time, he never was the first one who says hello to me via Facebook. I was the one who has done that. But we didn’t talk to each other that often as I had to force myself not to do so. Anyway, we had 3 hours conversation last night which I was the one who initiated the chat. But it turned out that we had other things in common and that’s why we could talk to each other that long via Facebook messenger, not telephone.


From talking, I could tell that he isn’t interested in me in the romantic way but he might have wanted to find a friend who has common interests. Actually, I told myself not talking to him via Facebook again but I couldn’t stop myself because I enjoyed spending time chatting with him. It’s not that easy to find someone who is interested in the same thing. I used to encounter this kind of experience. I met a friend who liked the same thing as me. He chose another cute girl to be his girlfriend even though we could feel the connection. The experience left me an important message that boys mostly look for cute/beautiful girls as their girlfriend but girls like me will be only his friend.

The pain from that time still lingered in my heart quite long, and I didn’t want to face it again. However, I will be careful for this time. Trying to take care of my heart. It will be breaking but I know that it can be mended as well. It hurts but it will be healed.

Fictional Intruder

Go down the rabbit hole with Alice; play quidditch with Harry Potter; float down the river with Huck Finn… If you could choose three fictional events or adventures to experience yourself, what would they be?

If I have to choose three fictional events, they would be:

  • Experiences of a girl in “Little House in the Big Woods” especially when they are cooking or preparing food.
  • When Harry Potter and friends go to drink Butter Beer.
  • Being Totto-Chan in Totto-Chan: The Little Girl at the Window

Loneliness within

Among others
My emotional turbulence.
You will never know.

Keep smiling.
Keep chatting.
Keep away my eyes from your face.

Ignore the solitude.
With all my willpower.
Erase the loneliness within.

Just a little crush

I never thought I would have this kind of feeling again.

But my heart skipped a beat when I first met you.

Your smiles made me smile.

I wanted to see your face everyday.

I thought of you most of the nights recently.

My weekends seemed to pass too slow.

As I really wanted to go to work, just to see your face again.

I knew we can’t be anything more than co-workers.

You’ve never realised what I though about you.

Because it’s just a little crush.

I didn’t have to tell you.

And I never will.

I guess you’ve already had the right one.

Even though you don’t have her, I know you would never think of me in that particular way.

The ages difference.

I’m not a sweet woman.

I don’t have perfect skin.

I don’t own a nice figure.

I have a foul mouth.

I speak what I think which might scare you sometimes.


I just want to stop my thoughts.

That always keep going back to your face.

But how can I do since I will meet you again tomorrow?

And I’m looking forward to seeing your face even if in a short moment.

You, just a little crush.

Steve’s Music Mix: Fashion Victim

Here’s a reminder from Steve for how to join this music mix challenge

Each week I will post 3 new questions so…

(1) Go to the music player of your choice and put it on shuffle
(2) Say the questions aloud and press play
(3) Use the song title as your answers

How do I look today?
A Wolf At The Door (It Girl. Rag Doll) – Radiohead
If I looked like a wolf staying at the door, I would be a tired one because of the very hot weather in my city today. Today was actually our national holiday which I still needed to work overtime according to our project timeline. However, I didn’t work as much as I wanted due to the high temperature so after working all morning I forwent any of burden and just lied on my bed reading a book.

What should I wear tonight?
Whispers In The Dark – Mumford & Sons

I should wear my pyjamas to my bed, and I wish that I shouldn’t hear any whispers in the dark because I sleep alone…

What should I wear tomorrow?
Scatterbrain (As Dead As Leaves) – Radiohead
Oh … unbelievably that I would get two songs from the same album of Raiohead in one post: Well done my iPhone?!? Ok, I shouldn’t wear anything that will be looked as dead as leaves, should I? Anyway, I’ve already prepared what I would wear tomorrow since I don’t have much time in the morning so I don’t want to waste time thinking what will be my outfit on my working days. So I will just wear a white T-Shirt and a pair of blue jeans.
