Lovers not Haters

Current events have made my stomach turn. The night of Nice tragedy I put myself to sleep crying. I kept reading the news updates. Thoughts about families, who lost their loved ones, overwhelmed me pushing deeper and deeper into despair. What about the man who has actually done it? Once a beautiful soul, who was born…

Good Enough

Sky is such a happy place. The blues and the whites, the fluff and softness. You can look up and find the whole zoo, a protagonist of the book you are reading, your dreams and fears. On a sunny and beautiful Sunday morning I was looking up in search of rabbits and elephants, horses and…

Travel and Break Fences

I am a very lucky girl. I have spent 9 months travelling in South East Asia. It has only been two weeks since I am back, but feels like this trip has never happened. Everything seems so normal. The streets are clean, I can understand what everyone is saying, I do not need to spend…

The Secrets We Hide

It was not like When Sally Met Harry, but let’s call them Sally and Harry. When Sally met Harry she thought he was shy and innocent, geeky and very cute. With his baby face and glasses hiding inappropriately long eyelashes. “Tentacle erotica describes a type of pornography most commonly found in Japan which integrates traditional…

Coffee Share

Nothing like starting a Saturday morning reasonably early. Made myself coffee. Finally, figured out how to use the Vietnamese coffee filter. Feeling like a grownup drinking coffee just as it is. No sugar, no milk. I have always had a soft spot for strong minded people, who are able to articulate their thoughts and ideas even…

The Land of Lust

Once upon a time there was a fishing village in eastern Gulf coast of Thailand. The years went by and fish was not the only catch wanted by the locals. Blooming girls and rosy gentlemen started coming to the land looking for love in all shapes, flavours and forms. I had a great pleasure myself…

Be Adventurous. Chaotic Asia

It was my first morning in Cambodia. Porridge with liver was served for breakfast. I ate it like a champion trying to hide my desire for toast and butter. We decided to explore a local market. All four of us, newly arrived volunteers, headed towards the streets of traffic, never seen colours and flavours. I got there,…

Apology to a Very Special Cat

I know a cat, who spent her teenage years giving the best bones of fish to her sister. Bitsy knitted a sweater and gave it away to her sister. Bitsy won a trip to a wonderland and decided to send her sister away instead. When Bitsy got married, she would sneak behind her husband’s back…

The Art of Giving

My mother sent me money. Just the thought of it makes my stomach go funny. Money is the last thing I want from her. All I really want is some understanding when I tell her that 9-5 job and a husband with bleached shirt might not be something that I am after. My first thought…

Your Biggest Fear

When I was a little girl I was scared of the dark. I remember sleepovers at my grandmother’s place and the very dark and scary stairs. My auntie would tell me to fight the demons by smiling. I wonder if she knew that I did as told. There was a cross with Jesus on it….
