A day at the beach! (Highlights: Shek O beach)

It’s labor day today and it’s a statutory holiday here in HK, so it’s everyone’s holiday! We are currently enjoying the fine sands of Shek O beach. There was never a plan for swimming so we are just in our comfy clothes lying in our beach mats after a hearty bbq meal. It’s a great…

Norms

STOP, LOOK, LISTEN

  STOP! I should have said, When you were rubbing yourself on my back. Am I just a piece of meat you can feast, When you’re in heat? I was numb, I was scared. Is my dress too short? Am I wearing too sexy? Is it even my fault? LOOK! I could have been your…

Ligaw

Isang ligaw na damo sa paningin ng Prinsesang iniirog. Pilit pagpukaw sa iyong atensyon ng aking natatanging bulaklak na sa iyo’y handog. Ngunit nababaling ka pa rin sa makikisig na rosas at mahalimuyak na kalachuchi. Kailan kaya bibigyan ng pansin itong damong ligaw na pilit kang inaakit? Pilit ko man itong iwaksi, ang mga ngiti…

Remember

Remember the time when life was much more simpler, when we were satisfied to be outside and meet our friends face to face. When we were happy playing with paper boats, running outside chasing each other, letting the cool wind caress our cheeks, blowing our hair to mess, laughing like there was no tomorrow, making us…
