He curled up on the window ledge with a book, a thick blanket covering his long legs as he sipped his tea.

As afternoon politely showed evening into the sky, the streetlights below started to flicker into life.

Idly, he looked away from his book to people – the form of human interaction he was most comfortable with.

It was a relaxing day, something which everyone around him could not understand.

His favourite things to do.

In Other Words, peanut butter…

So this is where you hid the peanut butter huh?

If you can’t tell that I’m a parrot, then something is wrong with your eyes.

Who says anything about you owning me?

I say I’m a parrot, I didn’t say I am your parrot.

I’m just here for the loot – isn’t it obvious?

You are not supposed to see me.

Well, that’s because I’m camouflaged.

I am one with my environment, a true ninja of the natural world, gathering information on my unsuspecting targets.

Well, excuse me!

What do you mean, I’m a lousy spy?


Spies are everywhere, especially in workplace. And they think they are so slick about spying on you. Don’t you just hate office politics, especially when you just want to finish your work and leave?

In Other Words, carousel

round the carousel of life i go
believing i have seen it all
distracted by how much i think
i have a horrid life
forgetting it is just a day of my life


I think we all need hope every now and then. Personally, this image conjures up an idea of horrid routine, but things change if I believe enough in myself. It’s best not to complicate things at times.
