essay writing blues

to anyone who reads this:

never ever decide to change your essay question 24 hours before the deadline.

4000 words of pain will ensue.


zach randolph, good guy

yet another reason to root for one of my favourite nba players.


The warriors need iggy back, it’s a lot more exciting. Also I hypothesize that they are the most fun team to play with on NBA2K14. Bogut block, or lee rebound, outlet, and instantly you get a three or an alley oop with splash bros/iggy/barnes. And their uniforms rock.

Side note: I need nba2k14

LaMarcus Aldridge, finally getting respect he deserves. Also, how good is Damian lillard? How does he stack up against Paul/Westbrook/curry?

The dominant center returns with Drummond and cousins… Oh wait. Tim Duncan is still in the league

Woe is injury. Anthony Davis was on pace for an all-NBA year, and rose. Oh man. Rose injured again is just depressing

If Rubio could shoot, how good would the wolves be?

How bad can the east be?

Is Paul George the third best player in the league?? He is an absolute monster to be sure. Ok I bet if the pacers have the best record in the league, George will win MVP, due to voter fatigue for lebron. Unless the thunder win more games than the pacers, then maybe Durant.

Durant is averaging 5 assists a game. Talk about domination and improvement

‘Potential assists’ are a fascinating stat

The heat are going to win again. Also, why isn’t bosh getting Respect? Favourite power forward in the league man. the man averages roughly 20/10 for five seasons and gets flak for being soft, wins 2 championships and gets criticized… While people rush to defend Carmelo. Really????????? Also maybe because I have man-crushes for lefty forwards (see: z-bo, odom, JOSH SMITH!!!).

The league’s currently all lefty starting five:
Z-bo,Bosh, josh smith, ginobili, Conley. Funky but one might guess it works too huh? I don’t have harden there because 1) ginobili is more exciting 2) I don’t like the rockets

Rondo rondo wherefore art thou rondo?

Don’t count Kobe out… Never do that. It’s like telling a Singaporean crowd there are freebies at supermarket and expecting there to be no queue.

Finally, am writing an essay about basketball photography for one of my modules. Best essay I’ve ever started on. On photography, the dunk, posters, and what comes after.

Escalatorway to heaven

Tube escalators are really long.

Saw a man on the Underground jogging up a downwards-moving escalator, drawing many accusatory stares from the conformist crowd.

Guilty in my unknowing herd compliance, my eyes followed the line of his vision.

Saw a woman with a smile on her face, visibly alight with joy, beauty that is imbued by the truest of emotions.

Saw a man’s smile grow into a huge grin, and hugged and kiss her.

They must be husband and wife! More than just the social implications of the rings on fingers, it was a feeling, a knowing. Undefinable yet knowable in entirety… The best things usually are.

Saw a man and woman meet in middle of escalator not obeying escalator rules today.

What a blessed man! To have a wife who inspires such brevity and expression and action.

Verses about food back home

This is an incomplete list of food to eat
When I return back home
Each of these especial treats
Are now inscribed inside this tome

Char kway teow from Shunfu Road
Fried with cockles yet not greasy
Hokkien mee from ABC
Fit for any royal court
Yu pian mee fen from Old Airport
Soup so good it’s ecstasy
Sambal stingray from Toh Yi
Takes my tummy to the cinema
Har cheong gai from Alexandra
Each mouthful a fiery assault
Chicken rice from Tanglin Halt
For it I’m willing to be stabbed

I dream of infinite chilli crab
An avocado milkshake waterfall
A specialized durian eating hall
Oh chee cheong fun! I hear thy call!

And finally after all this time
So good it doesn’t even need a rhyme
Or other forms of poetic metamorphosis
Just repetition, for emphasis:

Bowl upon bowl upon bowl of Thai Royal Umbrella Triple A!

Aunty, 多两碗饭。
