S/He: The Urban Hypocrites

He is an addict He lies compulsively He laughs during the day, Goes home to find himself dating the cold computer. His king bed full of sweat, His sweaters, unwashed, unclean. Sink full of dishes. He cooks Who will pour the dish detergent for him when he turns around? His mouth opens, but no dark…

Until, My Love~

I cannot wait, I need to hold you in me Until I can feel your wrinkles Bearing the testimony of time Until I can be sure you are real Until I lose my breath For you, I do~ Even if I cannot move, I need to have my eyes on you Until I can feel…

Lady of the Night

So far I have had two dismissals from clients, and both of them I found very amusing. The first one I have to admit I was to blame as I was so giddy with excitement and happiness over something that transpired during the day that I was in no mood to entertain clients. That, and…

Diary Entry of a Wandering Solitary Nomad: Moving Memories Part III

I knew not when I lost consciousness. The last image imprinted on my retina was darkness pure. The first to greet my refreshed senses was the mouth-watering scent from a working kitchen. Like a timid kitten I opened my still-sleepy eyes bit by bit and found myself in a soft bed, neatly and securely tucked…

Peanut Butter Cookie Cupcakes

For dance this week, I created a healthy version of the sinful cupcakes: PB (peanut butter) cookie cups (cupcakes)! Half cookie, half cake, these healthy treats were crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. A hit amongst friends, they were gone within seconds. They were made with very simple ingredients as…

Burlesque is Sexy and Makes a Girl Frisky~

We’re actually learning the choreography straightaway instead starting from the basics. As I am quite petite, it has been difficult to see the instructor up front and observe my form in the mirror. I am able to catch up with the choreography as long as I can see, but, due to the abovementioned factors, I’ve…

Seductive Siren or Vivacious Vixen?

Lady of the Night: I believe I mentioned this before, but my clients have commented on my voice and have been requesting for me to sing. I still have not “sold” my voice yet, but am considering to add singing to my repertoire – the only challenge is which one to choose out of so…

Rose Mocha Pudding ー My 幸せ moment

This was the dessert I made yesterday for myself as a pick-me-up for the busy day that was as well as a tiny reward for getting 45 likes and very positive reader comments on the story I submitted to FHB~! 🙂 It was a trial-test pudding by using egg and dairy substitutes, so the color…

School Starts~! (My bento lunches for this week)

School just started for me this week, and it has been extremely busy~! I’ve already cut down my late-night hours to once per week during the summer, so hopefully it will be manageable. Not only am I taking classes and doing reseach/work during the day, but I also have Burlesque lessons at night too, all…

Japanese Souffle Cheesecake

Unlike Western-style cheesecake, Japanese-style cheesecake is fluffier and lighter in texture and has a milder taste, hence its name, “souffle cheesecake”. I made one to share amongst friends this weekend. I hope you all had a lovely Labour Day weekend, too 🙂

My Unlawful Landlord: Part I

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing~ So, while I may be another person with an awful-landlord story, I refuse to be another victim and suffer in silence. I have lived in my current place of residence for around a year. It is a small studio basement…
