Haibun, oh, Haibun

When my lecturer asked us to pull out our book and open the page on Haibuns, I confidently took it out and started reading. I was staring dumbly at the page later. I had somehow misheard him and thought he was going to teach us about haikus. The three pages long Haibun stumped me. After his lesson and a week of attempting to write this Haibun, I hope that it is not too bad.<p>Eyes closing,<p>Limbs heavy,<p>Sun shone softly from above.<p>My feet dragged itself through the tarred walkways and road. Cars …

MISSING HOME -CONT

<b>MISSING HOME -CONT</b><p>Since tumblr cannot upload two videos on two posts, I am continuing my previous post here. The second song is ‘Home’ by Michael Bublé. The singer describes home as the place that is dictated by heart’s yearning. As long as the place has a significant meaning to a person or is where a loved one is located, then that place can be considered home. For the singer, his home is the place that his beloved is at. The location can change but as long as his lover is with him, he is …

MISSING HOME

<b>MISSING HOME</b><p>Currently, I am living in the dorm at my university. Although my house is quite near to my university, I found that living in my dorm room is far more convenient than commuting home everyday. However, this does bring some feelings of homesickness at times. I realise that it may sound silly considering that home is just 15 minutes away and my friends have to contend with their homes being on the other side of the country or even across the ocean. But I just can’t help myself …

LIFE AS A CURLY HAIRED GIRL

If there’s one thing that I find unique about myself when compared to my friends would be my hair. My close friends all have straight hair whether it’s long or short. I have what can be called the “megi” hair or as most would know it, curly hair.<p>I know, I know. There are hundreds of millions of people with curly hair in the world. Maybe even billions. But that’s internationally. I’m talking about local people. What’s that? Malaysians also have curly hair? Of course I know it, silly. But if you …

Godzilla~

This would be my first ever movie review for this blog. So, I will start with the latest movie I have watched which may be the most epic movie of the year for me.<p>Godzilla. The name should give people heart palpitations.<p>I still remember the first Godzilla movie that I watched. It was the 1998 Roland Emmerich directed movie. However universally disclaimed that movie was, it brought the whole franchise to my attention. I loved the animated series that came out with that movie. It was one of the …

Mother's Day and Mothers

The second Sunday of May is recognized by many as the day that we celebrate Mother’s Day around the world. This year is quite special for my family. That’s because, for 2014, the second Sunday of May was both Mother’s Day and my mother’s birthday. What were the odds of that happening?<p>It actually took me by surprise. I had known for weeks that my mother’s birthday was coming and by the time that the week of Mother’s Day came along, I had somewhat also known that the holiday was only around the …

My first public bus ride

The day that I finally managed to get that experience was not the day that I expected it to happen. I remember it as a very work-filled day where assignments were being handed around like crazy. In fact, I thought that I would have spent the day lazing around in bed like I do for every work-filled day.<p>It just so happened that my friend had to go to a mall to buy something. Like the <i>kepoci</i> person that I am, I volunteered to accompany her. Luckily, she agreed to have me with her.<p>The wait for the …
