10.000 Spoons

It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife.
When all you need is a knife might not be ironic, but it is unfortunate.

It’s like traffic jam when you’re already late, said Alanis Morissette.
It’s like making instant noodle and accidentally mix the wrong sauce.
It’s like you need to relieve yourself, and the toilet is broken.

Or…
It’s like saying I love you but I hate you.

How unfortunate to face the reality that the promise has broken, twice. No, many times.
How unfortunate to find some sneaky ways that happened behind the back.

You say it’s all in my head and the things I think just don’t make sense
So where you been then? Don’t go all coy

Do tell me why you waste our time
When your heart ain’t admitting you’re not satisfied
You know I know just how you feel
I’m starting to find myself feeling that way too

Time and time again, I play the role of fool (Just for you)
Even in the daylight when you think that I don’t see you

See? It’s like a start with Alanis and end up with Adele :P

Kakigori

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Moment in Time.”

Kakigori is a Japanese shaved ice dessert flavored with syrup and condensed milk. Popular flavors include strawberry, cherry, lemon, green tea, grape, melon, “Blue Hawaii,” sweet plum, and colorless syrup. To sweeten kakig?ri, condensed milk is often poured on top of it. It is not like a snow cone: It has a much smoother fluffier ice consistency, much like fresh fallen snow, and a spoon is almost always used to eat it.

Picture above is “Boo!!! Kakigori” with matcha syrup and matcha ice cream. That’s why it is green. But the ears are made from strawberries. How cute! <3 They have it in many flavors: strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, matcha, ogura, black sesame. I choose matcha (green tea) because I love that flavor so much! So the green shaved ice dessert with a bear shape, came to my table, ready to serve. Below those shaved ice, there were some egg puddings lying there, waiting to be found and tasted. Sweet, but not extremely sweet :) I wanna go there again, someday. Prepare for the long queue line. Waiting time approx. 15-30 minutes :D Location: SumoBoo - Kota Kasablanka, Jakarta.

Eating is something that you should do if you a human. Of course, any mankind on this earth surely like to eat. Especially when we are in a deep hungry state.

Anyway, in the big city, lunchtime has so many meaning. Lunch meeting, lunch date, etc. And lunch typically falls in the early-middle of the working day, it can either be eaten on a break from work, or as part of the workday. The difference between those who work through lunch and those who take it off could be a matter of cultural, social class, bargaining power, or the nature of the work.

Regularly, I cooked my own lunch, and bring it to the work. It is just for financial reason :p but when I woke up late or when I just don’t have any mood to cook, I will have lunch nearby my workplace. Nothing special with my daily lunchtime.

Last Christmas day, I had lunch with some of my family. It was something that unusual, since we are rarely meet each other. Here’s a picture of us, happily eating those Szechuan dining.

Down. We spend a lot of time looking ahead, looking from left to right before we cross the street, looking into the sky for Superman, but not a lot of time looking down. What do you see?
