The Danger of (NOT) Procrastinating

Oh my.....

The cup of tea I made this morning sits cold and untouched. It seemed only a few moments ago that it was made.

A little water in a kettle to boil, a little clean cup to stand, a little tea bag from a box marked 'Earl Grey.' The kettle boiled, I filled the cup, then tended to other matters.

Now, I am left with a cold cup of something that looks strangely like coffee and a strange, un-coffee-like aroma, asking...

'...just WHERE does time go these days?'

Time does flie doesn't it...
You never know where's it gone
I never knew where my time is either...
How good is it that we can just sit and drink for a moment leaving everything behind...

SF: Welcome back! I once drank 'experienced tea' accidentally... on an empty stomach. It was a very uncomfortable experience. ;P

ZI: *red carpet and firecrackers for zeroimpact*
Sitting and drinking to pass the time is OK: that's what's supposed to happen. But this is one of those days where it feels like everything is moving so slowly... everything except the time.
And then, once at home, time seems to speed up even more! Aiyoo....

Well it must have been my cup of tea. It seems I do that more and more. That tea cup rest next to a stack of newly burned disks, labeled Alaska, Vancouver, and Canadian Rockies. All are cold. :(

Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana.

One i left my coffee in the plunger for 2.5 hours, when the usual steeping time is about 3 minutes. It came out cold, extremely strong, and worse of all, acidic. I'm very careful now.

mine just whizzes by when I'm having fun, and crawls like a snail when I'm not. and my coffee hardly stays hot long enough for me to sip it slowly... why ah?

*watch lil' joy take hammer and hit nail on head*

SA: Oh dear... Looking at photos is a sure way of ending up with seefei's experienced tea, but I can't wait!

LC: Fruit flies do like a banana. They also like apples, oranges....
Three-hour coffee? O.O

angel: You suggesting I getting old liao, izit? Look! Kettle boiled oredi!

Time...
I've been passing time watching trains go by
All of my life
Lying on the sand watching sea birds fly
Wishing there would be
Someone waiting home for me
Something's telling me it might be you
It's telling me it might be you
All of my life


Already we are into the eight month of the year...and before you know it, another round of feasting during DeepaRaya and Christmas/New Year...

 
At 5:02 am, Blogger plink said...

LB: Chocolate and coffee, two of my favourite things. How could I say 'no' to a mocha? And a white chocolate mocha at that? ;)

chen: Where got grey/white hair? When I asked my friends about mine, they said 'Nolah. That wan is the glow of health....' :P

DBW: Wakaka!! If only I was having as much fun as that! If only....=D

ZI: Yah, sometimes catching time is like that Lat cartoon if a family trying to chase down a chicken: riuh sekampung and sometimes, strangely great fun....
If time stood still... I think someone who comes by occasionally might have a good answer for us.
LaoChen! Could you explain what might actually happen if time stood still, please?
*sitting attentively at desk*

angel: Mocha is so very-the-nice! Psst... if I want to stay awake, I have to drink strong coffee or tea instead

plink,
wo... true also hoh.. then, plink = Energy liao..
dun play-play

angeliu,
The name of that song is 思念誰 by 巫啟賢

你知不知道 
思念一個人的滋味
就像喝一杯冰冷的水
然後用很長很長的時間 
一顆一顆流成熱淚

你知不知道 
寂寞的滋味
寂寞是因為思念誰
你知不知道 
痛苦的滋味
痛苦是因為想忘記誰

你知不知道 
忘記一個人的滋味
就像欣賞一種殘酷的美
然後用很小很小的聲音 
告訴自己堅強面對

你知不知道 
你知不知道
你知不知道寂寞的滋味
寂寞是因為思念誰
