Thursday. Holiday.

 
20th Dec was a holiday.
 
It rained from dawn to dusk and beyond. The air was suprisingly frigid and there were goosebumps all over my arms. I spent the day reading Raymond Carver. He was simple yet there’s a undercurrent of ‘something complex’ in all his stories. I quite enjoyed this story of his: ‘A Small, Good Thing’. It reminded me of Kafka, Joyce Carol Oates and Ernest Hemingway rolled into one.
 
Went for a movie – ‘National Treasure’ – in the evening at Toa Payoh Eng Wah. The seats and cinema were nice enough. However, we had to sit through 3 re-screenings of the damn movie! It would start and run for a bit then the green screen of death pops up. By the 3rd time, we boo-ed the cinema. One good thing came of this, I managed to wrangle a drink and some nachos out of them. Walked around Toa Payoh for a while. There’s naught much to eat. The bus home was foggy and rainy. It felt good to be in a dry place while it’s wet outside. Like being in a cocoon.
