Ten Simple Pleasures, oh yes....

Only ten? Why only ten? In any case, AhWongKor tagged me and I'm going to have to do this the hard way....


1. That parking space you can easily pull into, just in front of the shop you wanted.

2. Making noise with friends. Lots of noise (not what you think)

3. Blue skies. If you look long enough into a blue sky, you get this feeling that it goes on forever.

4 .Chocolate. Preferably dark, though I like white chocolate too….

5. Ice Cream. Vanilla is nice, but I won’t turn away chocolate ice cream.

6. Chocolate Ice Cream. See?

7. A pair of shoes that fits perfectly and accidentally finding that your clothes actually flatter your figure. These two usually go together. Ever notice that when you get your shoes right, your clothes tend to make you look nicer too?

8. Coffee. Freshly-brewed, please. When it’s dark and murky; when, if the light catches it just right, there’s that multicoloured oil-slick on the surface; when it swirls like treacle and you half-worry that something unseen will burst forth from the inside of the coffee cup; that’s when it’s been brewed right. Shaking hands guaranteed for the rest of the day….

9. Dancing. There’s something about bodies moving that does it for me, though not exactly the way may puts it…. ;)

10. Rain. A thunderstorm is pretty exciting, but nothing beats a light shower. It’s cooler and there’s that wonderful sound of rain coming down: very nice for a nap.

11. Laughter. Laughter has saved my sanity, I guess. Maybe it’s because laughing feels so good.


What do you mean I’ve done eleven already? No tags. It looks like everyone else has already had a go. It's been fun. Let's do another one!

I have always worried when I see some oil slick on my coffee.. I would think someone has been dipping some oily object into it.. but now, with your disclosure, I will always look at those oil slicks in a different light! *dips oily thing into my coffee*

Thanks for doing this TAG from me! This has been one of your more readily saner posts too! I think I understood almost everything, except for that bit about lots of noise.

Ya-lah..very sane, this post..sometimes I feel like I'm reading word verification or something!! LOL But, boring to be sane all the time, no?

I also love staring at the blue, blue sky...especially like lying on the beach and stare at the sky from day to night..from blue skies to red to the stars at night...can't see much in the big bad city..too many artificial lights..
