About Me

So, basically this blog was started by envy. Kulam Ikan Tetangga (the neighbor's fish pond) is a variation to the saying that goes "the neighbor's Grass is always greener". The Neighbor's Fish Pond will always have fatter and more fish (than your own fishpond). And so it is.

Lucky day today. Seven, seven, seven.

9 am : Just woke up after hitting the snooze button twice. Dragged myself down.

9.54 am: Out of the gate, marched for work.

10.20 am: Had lumpiya basah while talking to Blanyuk.

10.30 am: not in the mood of smoking while talking at the reading room so chatted with Ben instead while we were picking up books in need of TLC.

12.01 pm: Starting to feel hungry.

12.03 pm: Telling self, discreetly, that self was not hungry.

12.05 pm: Self-suggestion proven unsuccesful, feeling even hungrier.

12.11 pm: Distracting self with a HUGE cup of lemon mint tea. Hot one, please.



12.13 am: eavesdropping on elderly people, elderly expatriates people, talking about older time Ciumbeuleuit area.
