My favourite drink

After more than 30 years of sampling various available soft drinks, you are still the only one I keep stock at home.

Every time my wife is busy at home with kids, housework, cooking, cleaning, I will pour her a glass.

She prefers you with ice.
I prefer sipping you from the can.

You go well with cigar, bbq food, fried food, spicy food.

I drink Coke on only 2 occasions.
Either when I'm alone or when I'm with someone.

Blink of the Eye

In the past few weeks, my boy, Nathaniel, had been the topic of discussion amongst the elders of the family.

They had been comparing how was I as I was a toddler, compared to my son.
The similarities and the differences...
Our temperament and emotions...
Some of the moments recollected (of me) were still in my memory.
Memory of some 30 over years ago.

That kinda made me feel like years was slipping away from me..
And hence the inspiration of the following poem..


In a blink of an eye,
I am now more than 35.
Though I have a feeling the end is nigh,
Unknown which day I will die.

In my bed,
I lay awake.
Fearing the next blink,
And I may just be dead.
