Words

Your words cut deeper than the sword.

Always.

Yes I will reflect on myself.

For now, I am hurt.

So hurt.

So very hurt.


I will keep quiet from now.

Keeping quiet is not a good idea for me but on the other hand, it might be a good idea.


If I choose to keep quiet, I have decided to cut away and shut down.

Maybe I should, for a while.

From everything.


To find myself back. To find me back.

Whampoa Prawn Noodles

After seeing Dblchin and Smiththankyou posting about the famous prawn noodles, I was also keen to check it out. I went on a Friday afternoon. Reached at 11.30 am and queued for about 15 minutes.





I ordered Bee hoon mee dry with chilli and ketchup. 

Nice. I am not a prawn lover, so didn't think too highly of this dish. Will give it 7.5 out of 10.

I feel that there are other nicer food in Whampoa market compared to this.
