[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 21

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Today’s prompt is, I suppose, quite creative so here goes.

—–

 

The alarm goes off at 7am as usual. It’s a Tuesday and I struggles a little to open my eyes. I can see some light filtering through the curtain and I wish it’s still the weekend.

When the second alarm goes, I grudgingly get up. I still want to eat something before I head out to work. A nice strong cup of tea is what I need to wake me up.

The breakfast is a quick affair and I’m out the door by 7.30am. The metro isn’t so busy, which is why I sacrifice another half an hour of sleep to avoid the crowd on my way to work. The music from my headphone helps drown out the surrounding and I am able to make it to the office in relative peace.

I’ve got a pretty busy day ahead of me today. There are products to be tested in the morning, in between replying to social media comments. And then, we will have to start filming for our Youtube channel in the afternoon.

By the time 10am rolls by, I have to get up to get another cup of tea. The product the company would like to launch next month is still behind schedule. The prototype we’ve got has so many small problems that I’m not sure how to get around it for the filming.

I go back to our social platform for a while, answering questions and replying to emails. It is quite a mind-numbing but time consuming task. I found it quite difficult in the beginning to balance the tone between polite but friendly. I spent quite a bit of time looking through forums to see how other people reply to these kind of things and kind of stumbled through.

I’d like to think I’m getting a hang of it now.

Lunch turns out to be a bit rushed because I lost track of time and I have to be there for the filming. It’s more challenging to produce a video, but also more fun. Our department has contributed to the content and we are hoping that the end result is what we want.

The filming takes up the whole afternoon and I nip in and out to get more emails replied. When 5pm rolls around, I find myself completely knackered. The filming isn’t quite finish yet but we all agree that wrapping it up tomorrow is better than ploughing through today.

I turn down an invite to go out for dinner because I feel like I’m coming down with a cold. I really don’t want to get sick so a quiet night in is probably more sensible.

As soon as I get home, I head to the fridge first to see what I can savage for a light dinner. Ends up just making soup to keep the cold at bay.

And then I plonk myself on the couch and get lost in the internet. I emerge for shower and then bed.

Hopefully, tomorrow is a good day.

—–

Day 21 —Find a job ad in the paper.  Write about your life if you had that job.

I didn’t find any paper so I just search for it on the internet. Really did find out for a Youtube channel manager or some sort so I used that as the idea. To be honest, there’s a routine there that is not that much different to my day now. I suppose I’m writing it more like a day in a life rather than my life in general… lol. And I have a cold at the moment so I thought I’d sneak that in too xD

And on that note, I’m going to sign off! Should really get an early night tonight so that cold won’t get worse… Stuffy nose now -_-

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 20

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Today’s prompt is:

Day 20 —If you could go on only one more vacation in your lifetime, where would you go and why?

—–

Oh goodness. This is hard. This is really hard. But I think, when it comes down to one more vacation, it will have to be Japan.

And this would include Tokyo and Osaka because I ain’t giving up if I don’t hit both USJ and Tokyo Disney Resort in one trip.

Basically do the same thing I did with lune last year but this time, probably do it in early April to hit the cherry blossom season too 😉

Why?

Well, let’s break this down. Japan was always a country I wanted to visit since… probably 2006. Finally managed to make that dream come true in 2011 and it did not disappoint. It is still my favourite country to go to and Tokyo is possibly my favourite city to visit. I love the vibe, the atmosphere, the food, everything.

I have, have, have to do Tokyo Disney Resort (aka both Disneyland and Disneysea) one last time because these amusement parks remind me of my childhood and it always brings me such joy to visit each time.

Now, as much as Disney was a huge part of my childhood, Harry Potter is a massive part of my teenage years. So it won’t do my passion any justice if I don’t make it to USJ one last time too. To the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

In terms of which time of year, there is no doubt that my favourite time to visit Japan is during the cherry blossom season. That was when we had our first trip and it really did make a huge impression on me. Mind you, I’ve always have a love for the cherry blossoms from way before. I love flowers and pink and what did you say? There is a tree that will produce pale pink and delicate flowers all over?! No leaves?!?

And when I saw it with my own eyes, it was even more beautiful. I really, really do love cherry blossom season. Plus, that’s when the strawberries come out so there are so many seasonal menus with strawberries that I love~ ❤

The prompt didn’t ask who will be accompanying me but if I had to choose, it will be my family, close cousins and of course, lune. Big trip xD But we will have so much fun together, eat a lot of fantastic food and spend way too much.

It will be a trip of a life time 😉

—–

I may come back later on to add to hit the 500 word mark but I’m tired and my toe is still throbbing a little and I want to go back to watching Youtube clips about Disney Resorts (xD Thingamavlogs, I really enjoy their videos especially Tiff’s ones. Her food vlogs at one of the Disneylands (I think it was Tokyo…, here’s the link) was what caught my eyes and I really like watching her.)

I also managed to accidentally sweep a mug off a table last night. On to my foot. More specifically, onto my fourth toe (is that the correct way of calling it?). It is now… dark green in colour… ^^” I’ve been limping since last night and it’s been driving me a bit frustrated because I’m a fast walker and I can’t do it now. So have to take it easy for at least a week or so I think…

So yeah, going to try to rest more tonight. Oh yeah, the pain woke me up last night too. Or, I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn’t go back to sleep because of the pain… Boo.

Hope you are all having a much better Monday than I am!

With love,

These are all of the things I would like to do in my life that I could think of at the moment. I’ll come back and edit if I can think of more.

It’s been a relatively productive Sunday…? I mean, I got more work done than usual but still have some left that I wanted to finish over this weekend but it ain’t gonna happen… *sighs* Ah well, at least I was somewhat productive. I’ll take that over not getting anything done at all xD

Hope you are all having a relaxing Sunday!

PS – Had a couple groups of people coming to look at the flat again today. The owner wants to sell it so there’s been plenty of people coming around to see the place.

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 18

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Here is my entry for today’s prompt.

—–

You can’t help but to grip the seat belt across your chest. Even though there is a barrier between you and the air outside, you can almost imagine the wind that would be blowing on your face with the speed we are going.

It might look good in the movie but this is real life. You are definitely more tensed than the one between the wheel but is that really a surprise? You knew what you were getting yourself into when you reluctantly agree to get into the car. Not that you could’ve said no, family member and all. Still, you kind of wish you have.

The car turns sharply and you think your knuckles are probably white now.

“Watch where you are going!!” The yelling from the driver seat made you close your eyes. Another sharp swerve and you send a prayer out to whoever is listening.

Please, you think almost desperately, if I make it out alive I will-

You would have been thrown out of the front window if it isn’t for the seat belt. You feel like your neck almost snap as the car breaks so suddenly from such speed.

“Why are you crossing now?! Don’t you have eyes to see that a car is coming?!?” The yelling is expected, the middle finger, not so much. But again, not really a surprise.

You know you have made some questionable decisions in your life, but this is probably in that top 5. You wonder dazedly if jumping out of the car now would be safer than to stay.

The buildings outside tell you that it’s not too far now till the destination and you hope and wish and pray that you will get there in one piece.

—–

Day 18 —Take a reader behind the wheel with the worst driver you’ve ever known.

I actually can’t decide who would be the worst driver I’ve ever known because I actually don’t worry too much when I am in the car. So I’ve taken this prompt down a more creative route ;D And I know that it’s a bit short but I really don’t have much idea for this one… ^^”

On another note, it has been such an unproductive day for me. Brought work home which I haven’t touched yet. What I have been doing, however, is listening to the soundtrack of La La Land. Oh, my goodness. I love the soundtrack of this film!! And the sets and costumes were so beautiful… Quite a joy to watch Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling too so it was a great day to spend part of a Friday night 😉

I’m going to sign off here now and try to be a bit more productive… *sighs*

Have a great weekend guys!

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 17

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Here is my entry for today’s prompt.

Disclaimer: All of the characters are fictional. Any details that may be similar to a real person is entirely coincidental.

—–

 

“Remind me again why we are doing this?” Jonny asked as he flipped a burger on the griddle.

“Because Nat asks us for a favor.” Scott replies from his fries station.

The reply shouldn’t be enough but it was. Nat is not the type of person to go around and ask for a favor easily. And you want to have that one favor owed from her because she can save your life later on, repaying that back. So you don’t turn Nat down when she asks for a favor.

Take Jonny for example. She’s the reason why he was still alive and well here.

Even if ‘here’ is in a fast-food restaurant owes by one of the richest families in the country.

“Did she say who we are covering for?” Jonny couldn’t help but ask. It was the lull in the afternoon and this was the first burger he had to cook in the last half an hour. He had half a mind to go grab the mop next just to have things to do.

“No, but I bet it’s for Clayton.” Scott seemed to have finished with his work as he moved to join Jonny in staring at the sizzling meat patty.

“I bet that it ain’t for Clayton. Can you imagine him working here?” Jonny raised his eyebrows at Scott’s suggestion.

The blond paused for a bit then laughed. It never failed to pull the corner of Jonny ‘s mouth into a smile when he hear that sound.

“Yeah, you’re right. I can’t imagine Clayton working here at all, he’d end up eating all of the fries and get fired. Even Tom wouldn’t be able to save his job.” The mirth in the blue eyes made Jonny forget about being grumpy over having to stay in door when it was such a beautiful day.

He snorted at what Scott had said though, “Please, Tom would more likely be the one who fire Clayton. Or he probably never would’ve been hired in the first place.”

“Yeah. Remember that time we did the barbecue in our Senior year?” Scott asked as he bumped his shoulder with him. Jonny would deny it to the end of his days that the action made his chest warm.

“How can I forget? That is the reason why Clayton is still banned from being near the food or the punch bowl!” They both snickered at the memories. Clayton decided that it would be funny to spike their already alcoholic sangria. And the caramel sauce for the grilled peach with ice cream dessert. They still cracked up about the resulting drunken snog between Tom and Teddy now.

Sometimes, Jonny wanted to pause and pinch himself to prove that this was his life for real. He had friends that had been with him over a decade long. And someone who he didn’t mind spending the afternoon with in the kitchen of a fast-food restaurant even if they could be outside, enjoying the Spring’s sun.

Life was pretty good.

—–

Day 17 — Write a short scenario set in the kitchen of a fast-food restaurant.

This one was fast as soon as I decided on the characters! ;D

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 16

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

I’m half way through! Eeeeeeee

So without further ado, here is my entry for today’s prompt.

—–

I have never really thought about types of ghost before but I suppose there are a few out there. If we talk in the broad sense, I would like to see a ghost that is peaceful. As in please don’t get violent and kill me.

Yes, I went there. Hey, I’ve got to cover my bases. And really, do you blame me? With all of the media with the horror genre, I really can’t handle them. I would read the story line on wikipedia (I’ve read many), but I would not even watch the trailer, let alone the film itself. It’s like roadkill, you can’t look away. Except with me, once I’m interested in the story, I would like to know how it ended. But not with visual because visuals will haunt me longer. I just enjoy reading about them in a short text form.

Anyway, back to this. Assuming that all of the ghosts I can see would be peaceful, I would like to see one from centuries ago… Just so I can see how they would dress and behave. I don’t really have a specific era per se, I will take whatever I can get.

To be able to see a pre-historic human would be a great opportunity too. I’ve watched this documentary called ‘The Incredible Human Journey’ by the BBC and it got me interested in the history of the human race.

I think, though, that to see any ghost from any time in the history beyond 100 years ago would be fantastic.

If I have to go deeper and use the word ‘ghost’ as a permission to see one dead person, I would pick Jane Austen.

(Now this was tough. I thought of William Shakespeare too as well as a few other historical figures in Thailand. As well as my late grandmother. But I don’t want to go down a melancholy route so the author of-

Wait. Terry Pratchett. And Alan Rickman. Ahhhhhh.

No, I think… I will still go with Jane Austen. Goodness that was a tough decision!)

Anyway, I was going to say that I chose Jane Austen because she wrote one of my favourite books of all time, Pride and Prejudice. It is so witty and ironic and it gives me so much joy. That opening line of the book is just pure gold.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

So. Good. I really love it, the best opening line to any book ever. So I would just like to meet the writer of this, Jane Austen, and thank her and pick her brain a little.

So, I suppose the type of ghost I would like to see is a peaceful one from the 18th century…?

—–

Day 16 —If we assume ghosts are real, what type of ghost would you like to see?

That was a bit of an unconventional one! I really didn’t know where to go and just kind of ramble and found excuses to gush about Jane Austen a little, lol. And I will also be out tomorrow evening so I’m going to go ahead to the next entry now xD

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 15

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Here is my entry for today’s prompt.

—–

Félix Antony had been lucky almost all of his life, just like his name has suggested. The place where he came from, names are powerful things. His mother had chosen the names carefully for all of his siblings.

His childhood was among the better ones compared to many others. They never had to worry about food or warmth, not even in the coldest month.

As he grew older, Félix started to realise that he was not like most others his age. He did not want to find a wife or built a house to settle down. Often, there were storytellers that would come and go to his town, all filled with captivating tales that he couldn’t get enough of.

Stories of faraway lands, of adventures and quests on the rolling sea. Of creatures he never heard the names of, let alone being able to imagine what they really looked like. He has been inspired by those stories and wanted to go out to discover if those tales were true or not.

So as soon as Félix was old enough, he left home to collect his own stories.

And for a while, he was living out his dream. He had been to places he could never have imagined. He had met extraordinary people. He had wild adventure with many of them while running away from others. Félix never had a destination in mind, he went where the words led him to.

All that he had experience so far, they all made good stories. And he found joy in telling them.

Until he came to this small town. It was quite isolated from the rest of the world, surrounded by high mountains, people lived frugally.  There were fewer smiles and laughters, more distrust in the air.

Félix did not let that put him off. He had livened up many towns before and he thought that this one would be the same.

He was wrong.

The people were uninterested in stories that would not bring food to the table. He could tell that they were just entertaining him as a guest in town who had money by listening to his stories.

The children were worse. They were hungry for food, not tales. Their eyes did not widen by dragons or giant whales. They only wanted bread to fill their empty stomach.

“You’re lying, stop making things up.” A young child told him before walking away. Félix was frozen to his spot. No one had ever accused him of telling lies before.

He prided himself in always being truthful to his stories. To be accused of lying by a mere child, it was as bad as being falsely accused of a crime.

Félix left that town soon after but that feeling still haunted him. No matter where he went after, he couldn’t get rid of that feeling. Sharing his tales no long brought him joy. He spoke less and smiled even lesser.

He longed for the day he could tell his stories once more.

—–

Day 15 — Create a character who is falsely accused of a crime.

I had no idea what to write about for today’s prompt so I went on a random name generator to find a name first. Then I found Félix and thought it was perfect. And I wanted to stick to the fantasy genre a bit longer. 🙂

 

I’m planning to get an early night tonight so I’ll sign off here. Hope you are having a good week!

 

With love,

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 14

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Here is my entry for today’s prompt.

—–

 

He has been working for a long time. Some may say that it has been too long but he has relatives who have been around longer.

Work has changed a lot these days, with technology and all. He has learned to embrace it and in some ways, it does make his work much easier. A few tabs on the phone and a job can be done.

They do not last this long if they do not adapt.

He does miss doing things the old fashion way though. So once in a while, he will wander around the city and see what he can do with the people he comes across.

Despite what many may think, February is not the busiest month for him. Work is actually pretty steady throughout the year. There are enough people around the world to even the numbers out in each month.

There is a traditions he has started quite recently. (It has been nearly 4 decades long, but when you are as old as he is, 40 years is a blink of an eye.)

No matter where he is, he will make it to Memphis on this day every year. There wouldn’t be a particular place to visit, he just likes to walk around and soaks up the atmosphere.

Of course the cities have changed, but somehow, he can always remember clearly what it was like back then.

Elvis was handsome, there was no doubt. His rise to fame was unplanned but he welcomed it. He has met the singer many times through out Elvis’s life. Sometimes as a spectator, and others, well, he can never resist a temptation.

There are not that many mortals whose voice has managed to capture his attention, let alone captivating enough to keep him coming back for more. Before he knew it, he has been paying a visit to Elvis every single year on the same date, no matter where the singer might be.

That habit has not changed yet even though Elvis is no longer alive. He supposes he can visit the singer himself in the Underworld but there is something right about being in the living world while remembering about the famous King of Rock and Roll. Walking around in Memphis is enough. And if he hums to himself, well, it is nobody else’s business.

Elvis Presley, the man that has made his job easier and harder at the same time. During the years that the singer was alive and popular, he encountered countless women and men in his work.

Many fell in love with the voice, others at the face. Some, fell for the moves, while numerous others fell for the whole package.

Humans can form connections over shared passion too. Legions of relationships were formed because of Elvis, ergo innumerable jobs accomplished. He has his hands full for quite a while.

He liked that challenge though. He is not Eros, the god of love, for nothing. Or as many may know him better by his Roman twin, Cupid.

—–

Day 14 —Elvis still gets 100 Valentines each year.  Tell about one of the people who sent one.

This one nearly didn’t come out! I’m glad it’s finished and I am actually losing sleep because of this challenge. Urgh. Not giving now!!

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! This entry kind of fits with the them, innit? xD

 

With love,

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 13

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Here is my entry for today’s prompt.

—–

 

It’s blimming cold even though it’s in the middle of the day and the sun is out.She knows that it is February, which is typically the coldest month of the year, but God she hopes that Spring will come soon.

The power walk from her car to the building isn’t that long but she still feels like her ears may have fallen off from the cold. She keeps forgetting to bring her knitted hat with her.

There aren’t that many shoppers around since it’s a weekday. She’s actually nipped out of work during the lunch break to pick up some prints she has developed.

She doesn’t normally have any pictures developed anymore since it is much more convenient to take and keep the photos on the smartphone. Not to mention uploading them on facebook and all. It is a bit of a pain when the phone’s memory becomes full but she finds that in the past couple of years, she doesn’t feel the need to look through physical photo albums.

However, this is for work so she’s getting it done at the nearest place, which is Costco. She looks at her watch to see if she has time to do a bit of shopping since she was already here before power-walking towards the photo sections.

She idly thought of what possible things she can buy from Costco that won’t go bad in the afternoon because she doesn’t have time to go drop her things back at home first.

“Thank you,” she says to the staff that hands her the thick envelop. She opens it up to check the prints inside.

Everything looks good until she gets to the second half of the pile. In between a photo of a beach and a rain forest, there is a picture of a dark dome with red and blue.

She does a double take and looks at the picture again to realise that it is a picture of a chocolate dessert.

A laugh escapes her because it is all so… unexpected.

The dessert is almost a full sphere, with a raspberry and a blueberry on top (that explains the red and the blue her brain registered first). Around the dessert itself are some sort of crushed nuts, which look kind of like small pebbles surrounding the chocolate dome.

She first thought that the chocolate ganache is so shiny that it reflects off the light until she realises that it’s actually a piece of gold on top of the dessert. Well, gold seems to be popular these days for decorating food so she really shouldn’t be surprised.

The more she looks at the picture, the more she would like to try it in real life. It looks quite pretty and she wonders if it will taste as good as its look.

She thinks about the closest patisserie to her workplace or home and realises there is none at all. She sighs and resigns to get some chocolate from Costco just to tide her over.

—–

Day 13 —Write about a random picture you would find in an envelope of finished prints at Costco.

I hope this works! I was initially going to go for something more serious or Valentine’s related and then thought, nah. Let’s try something new instead. xD

I feel like most of my entries so far for this challenge have been quite serious so I have to try something different. This is what the challenge is about for me, a chance to try out different writing styles and themes. To explore and dabble.

And I know the prompt seems to want me to write it from my own perspective but I’ve never found any random picture at Costco before. I didn’t even know you can do prints at Costco! xD So I took some liberties and went a bit creative with it xp

So yeah, I hope anyone who reads this enjoys it! I am pretty tired now, haven’t been going to bed early for these past couple of days so I’m going to (try to) be good tonight and get an early night. No more Youtube. I think that is the key xD

Hope your Monday is/has been a good one!

 

With love,

From GZ

 

PS – the weather is warming up again but it’s got to that point where it is colder inside than outside *sighs*.

PPS – Made some lemon drizzle tray bake today!

[30 Day Writing Challenge] Day 12

As always, here is the list of all of the 30 day challenge I am doing at the moment.

Day 12 —What is your favorite day of the week?

—–

I’ve been thinking about this since I finished my entry yesterday.

I think for a short and traditional answer, I will say that my favourite day of the week is, of course, Saturday.

It’s the first day of the weekend. I can have a lie in. I normally have something fun plan for Saturday too, go out, see friends and/or family, eat good food, etc.

And then I can stay out (or in) late because the next day is still another weekend. There are usually great TV programmes on Saturday too.

However, if I can be less conventional, I would like to say that my absolute favourite day of the week actually starts after work on Friday xD I actually like Friday night more than Saturday night. That feeling of ‘it’s the start of a break’ is the absolute best.

So if we take the day of the week being a 24-hour period. It would start straight after work on Friday. By that point in the week, I would normally have reached my limit for work and would be able to put anything that has been worrying/stressing me out at work out of my mind. At least for 24 hours.

When I’m in GZ, I would almost always go out on Friday. Looking back on it… I think I’ve always been out on Friday night. Even though I don’t drink, I appreciate that sweet drink after work to wind down and relax with friends. Take this weekend of example, I went to Taojin area for dinner at the Garden Hotel (Ladies Night!). The dinner doesn’t start till 6pm and we were in the area by 5pm.

So we hit Starbucks and I had a blackcurrent and raspberry tea I think. It was very good, really like it. But see, I would rather go and hang out somewhere out rather than going home to get change or something. I always rather go out straight from work because coming home first tends to make me feel like a hassle. (I’ve done it once or twice though when I have other things to take with me for dinner. If it’s about clothes though, I would rather taken them to change at work with me than to come home xD

When I was in uni in England, I don’t think I ever spent Friday night by myself. I was always with friends. Heck, when I was in uni, it didn’t matter what day of the night it was. A friend has commented once that I behaved rather differently when I was away from home compare to when I was at home.

(When I’m in Bangkok, we usually have to make plans. When I’m away from home, you can call me at 6pm and I would be down for meeting up for dinner at 6.05pm xD Well, when I was in uni anyway. And that did happen many times, lol. Ah, good times.)

Anyway, I would like to make my final answer for favourite day of the week be the 24 hours start from when I get out of work on Friday 😉

Ah, this was pretty easy to type out too. Though I wasn’t sure if I would make it pass the 500 words mark or not. So I kept rambling on xD

I am procrastinating from work at the moment, hence updating today’s prompt so early… Got work to do but don’t want to do it ><

Anyway, hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

 

With love,

PS – Feel like I may have some stomach problems again. Urgh. Hopefully not…

PPS – Stayed around the area where I live last night. Had Korean fried chicken then sat a a nice, local bar after from some sweet, non-alcoholic drinks and chat with friends xD

Look at how pretty this drink is! And it tastes delicious too, my favourite drink at this place.

The strawberry flavour is not too strong and there’s something else that kind of reminds me of, like, strawberry yoghurt drink…? But not too strong. Very lovely for any evening 😉

The layers are, I believe, passion fruit syrup, sprite, pineapple juice from bottom to the top.

I usually only end up having one drink but last night I wanted more sweet drinks so got this one too. It’s too much on the sweet side for me. And the pineapple juice is too artificial to my taste too but I wanted something sweet and fizzy so this fit the bill last night.
