    Love on the road

    That morning was very cold. Rain fell the previous night and it kept me on my bed. The weather brought that sensation that makes you crave for more sleep even when it’s bright outside. My mother stormed my room and then expectedly slapped my butt. She was very fond of that. She usually tells me that my butt was too big for me. For the most part, she recounts how she had a flat ass-cheek at my age, and perhaps I had inherited mine from her mother, my grandmother. I couldn’t really fathom why she’d complain about it like it was a problem for anyone. Even if it was, it’d…

    The rats and diamond

    A rat once swallowed a diamond and the owner of the diamond contracted a man to kill the rat. When the rat hunter arrived to kill the rat, there were more than a thousand rats bunched up, and one sitting by itself away from the pack. He killed the one sitting by itself and that was the exact one that had swallowed the diamond. The owner of the diamond was amazed and asked the hunter, “How did you know it was that rat that swallowed my diamond?” “Very easy,” the hunter smiled. “When idiots get rich they don’t mix with old friends.” This post is not all  about tales of…

    A night to remember

    An unsettling feeling began swelling inside me. It seems there was something wrong in the — but I couldn’t quite tell where or what it was. I felt as though I had entered a house with the gas stove left on; the atmosphere was dense and strange, though apparently invisible to my eyes. I just received an alert on my phone and it was debit. I’ve been in the hostel since morning after I returned back from the class. Suddenly, I realized what it was: I’ve just been defrauded. My heart started pounding at an increasingly rapid pace. I checked my watch, almost noon. Who could have done this? My…

    When cousins dont think.

                        When Cousins Don’t Think! Once, the Gorilla and the Chimpanzee met up with each other on a long, hot trail. They had no where to go in particular, though they had to go until they could find somewhere they could be safe. Hunters were harassing them, bush doctors wanted parts of their bodies for medicine and concoctions. Scientists needed to dissect their bodies for research and experiments. It was becoming a very unbearable existence for them…but, soon they reached a well. Both of them were very thirsty, and were dying for at least a drop of water. Both of them…

    BATTLING WITH MY FEARS

    BATTLING WITH MY FEARS   It is 4:30pm. You sit on your bed, yoga style. The other day, you had read in a blog post how this sitting position was the best for effective writing especially when one’s muse was being toyed with by their village people. That is exactly your present predicament and you’ve been sitting in this position for God knows how long. Your phone lay on your bed, open to a blank page on WPS Office. The cursor blinks on desperately, yearning to be utilized. Your head feels woolly. Many ideas swim inside it but none seem worth writing about. You want to write about your hard-to-please Creative…

    The Fault in our Stars – John Green

      The Fault in Our Stars – John Green [Book Review]   I do not know to do Book reviews, but the so much brilliance and humor,and tragedy, and flirting,and love in this book eludes me. So,I would try my best to describe it in the best way I can,even though it is indescribable. Let me begin with saying that Mr. Green succeeded in creating a very honest,and deeply resonant story,though based on a premise that could have been mawkish if handled by some other writers. I love that he brilliantly tackled big themes – life,love and death – with this book. TFIOS stars 16-year-old Hazel Grace Lancaster, who for…
