A sneak peek of my new experiment. Hehe :-)
One of the best moments from Gurinder Chadha’s Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging, a very lovely coming-of-age film that has been recommended by my little sister. Libby, the little sister of the main character was such a cutiepie, and she really reminds me to the one who recommended me to watch this film, Lintang. And what made Libby more awesome was that she thinks she’s part cat. Very adorable and eccentric at the same time.
I’m sitting in front of my laptop, trying to get done with all the tasks I must finish within this week. And suddenly here came a small insect settling down on the surface of my laptop monitor. I wasn’t distracted by it, yet this bored feeling drove me to ‘have fun’ with it. So I started to follow where the little creature goes with my cursor. When it walks, I move my cursor to follow it, then when it stops, I stop my cursor as well. The little one seemed confused, but funnily, it seemed like it had fun too.
Maybe I sound crazy but I found happiness that refreshed me a little from such simple thing. Or perhaps it is just okay to be crazy once in a while.. in order to be happy.
JUMP test shot.—
The vision I saw that summer morning in my house in Red Lake County, Minnesota, I still can recall. I was on my bed, woke up so lazily. My blurry eyes pictured my mother, in a sweet white dress. She came to me and I can remember her smell. Somewhat between white musk and vanilla. White musk from the dress she wore, the scent of softener she used for the laundry. She was smiling to me, stroking my hair, and pinching my cheeks softly. I was humming. Apparently, my favorite vanilla smell is from her wrinkly hands. I asked her what’s for breakfast today. Vanilla pancakes, sunny-side up, and milk, she answered.
Suddenly I could catch the greasy taste of those nasty half-cooked egg-yolks mixed with a glass of fatty and rich pasteurized cow milk inside my sour mouth.
