One, two, three, four, five,
….. 30%. You happy?
Please like and comment!


Today’s conversation was quite hot. One insisted number of “like” is significant, the other one insisted the other way around. My best friend and I found that we get high number of likes in Instagram when uploading pictures of our latest look. Both of us can get “likes” around 20-25% of number of followers. She does pay attention to it, she even puts a hashtag of “likeforlike”; I don’t always check, not even bother myself to reply to comments except from those who are characteristically honest and accurate; liking comment is good enough. Sorry….

BF: Look! This picture of yours get high number of likes. So you should pose like this. You should wear these earrings. You should comb your hair to the other side.

BF: Hey! Look at my recent picture. People like when I wear this colour.

BF: You have beautiful eyes. Show them to the world!

BF: Why my hair looks like this?

BF: Don’t wear this dress again. Wear the one you bought with me!

Me: “eeekkk!”

Having a good friend who pays attention to my look is a blessing yet giving me goosebump. I feel so loved and reminded to always look perfect yet my thought of how she selects pictures or videos before uploading is rather overwhelming. 😛

BF: Change your profile picture! You look messy!

Me: I’m decent! Not necessarily gorgeous but….

BF: What? Clean, tidy and fragrant? People only use their eyes in Instagram. They don’t care whether you are truly clean and tidy or smell sweet or not! They don’t even care if you are truly happy or not!

Me: I love you so much but please unfollow me…. 😴

BF: &@“)(/#%¥£€><| 🤪😂

Note to myself: Why is this best friend accurate about many people?

best picture to upload! good for everyone’s sight 😍

Ears vs Eyes

These ears, Beloved,
Hear your voice. These eyes hide you
From the remembrance.

This hearing sense records memories more deeply than the sight and widely than the sense of smell.

met this friend that didn’t even produce any single click when slowly moving – would you please tell me a fairytale from your land?


Bi’rsweet, Beloved,
The way perfect life tastes;
Subtle craftsmanship—

It takes high skill to blend tastes. It takes perfect acceptance to enjoy the concoction presented; otherwise, just go fasting. 🙂

Welcome new week.

perfect life in a cup of coffee – bitter sweet
perfect life in a plate of kunefeh – “gurih” sweet 😄

Feel Good

Say hi, Beloved,
To those making you feel good.
Life is abundant.

When very good plan and very bad weather collide, it takes just a breath to be back to feeling good mode.

Life is too abundant to consider a lost day a loss.

hi, colibri! (RC Gorman’s)


Orange, Beloved,
Mixture of red and yellow;
Calmly encouraged

Orange is the color of joy and creativity. Orange promotes a sense of general wellness and emotional energy that should be shared, such as compassion, passion, and warmth. Orange will help a person recover from disappointments, a wounded heart, or a blow to one’s pride. (excerpted from BournCreative)

Thanks for today.

Lemon, Beloved,
Bitter nor sour. It’s love
And longevity.

Drinking lemon juice is one way to clean the toxic away from the body. A few drops of lemon in the water for a bath is also giving more freshness.

when life gives you lemons, make lemonade? hmm… make lemon-infused water, fresher and healthier 🥰 (RC Gorman’s Woman with Lemons)


Nocturne, Beloved,
Desert at velvety nights;
Her hair is waving,
Where pitch and rhythm dangle
Sprinkling tones of a warm heart

Night is a sweet shelter that never complains whether I snore or sing or cry or laugh or play or work or just sit on the window nook.

Equal, Beloved,
Weighing process and result
To find the unknown

Some Math teachers would be very particular about whether 6 is 3×2 (2+2+2) or 2×3 (3+3) in students’ homework. Conceptually mathematicians consider those two operations different. Yet to me as long as we find the solution, why catch a bullet and die?


which one is more important: 1+1 or 2 or the =
