Tell-A-Tale (Part 19): The Reminder.

'Door closed.'

'The day’s sitting quietly at the backseat.'

'Slipped in Feist’s The Reminder.'




'Rain subdued.'

'Thought of you.'


A smooth, intoxicating, warm body.

Dripping sweat over heat.

Bathing in coconut milk.

Exchanging tastebuds over savoury, softened rice.

Going exotic too.


At that sweet embrace of milk and sugar.


'Fainting rain.'

'Blurring vision.'

'Needing warmth.'

'Finding you.'







'Flashing lights.'

CUMI & CIKI said...

you know.. i just left a comment on kenny's site. But I have to say.. if I go to kenny's site for romantic cards, lemongrass site for inspirational cards... I would go to your site, for erotic greeting cards.. oh yes i would ! haha... thanks for making the blood rise !

Life for Beginners said...

Oh, so it's a rain post! Or, er, something erotic? Hmm... best continue to study the comments for clues... ;)

Nic (KHKL) said...

fbb, hehe...yeah, i absolutely agree on the shiok sendirism...well, it is actually a story about me craving for some hearty dishes after a hard day's work. yes, hearty cos it was raining and cold. :) oh, and thanks for the compliment! i kinda like B&W photos as well! but will resume to full technicolour in the next post! :)

kenny, awesome! the first song i heard from feist was "I'm Sorry" and it's stuck in my mobile phone til today!! :) i actually enjoy the other album, "Let it Die" more. "Gatekeeper" was incredible. rest of it...errr....a craving for warm food on a rainy day. hehe...

ling239, hehehe..ya lor, lemongrass is singing about the rain, in the rain.
"so the rain actually wash away all the colors in ur photos....>.<"..i like that statement! very cool! the pictures with colours will resume in the next post. :)

precious pea, aiyoh, so sorry! *passing you the eye-mo*..hehe...but dun worry, the next few posts will have the same pictures in full colour! :)

bigboysoven, yeah, the rain's heavy these days, eh? a bowl of hot maggi mee plus an egg will be great for a rainy night! :)

cumi & ciki, really?? cool!! and thanks! :) though i must assure u that i'm no sex maniac or any of its equivalent...hehe :) but i'm definitely not for the romantic cards lar...hehehe...i think both lemongrass and kenny can do very good erotic greeting cards as well..hehehe...

Nic (KHKL) said...

kenny, haha! was replying the comments when u dropped the last comment....it is definitely about food...warm, sweaty, sensuous food on a rainy day.. :)

Live2Talk said...

Hmm you embrace a 'warm body' on a wet day ... I thought you should enjoy a wet day after embracing a 'warm body' ;P

CUMI & CIKI said...

yes la.. u are no sex maniac.. just hot blooded alpha male.. mwahahahah

backstreetgluttons said...

ya , you needed those flashes of B&W brilliances to RRrreset the 2morows mosaic of more then the 888 kalaidoscopic commmings

Nic (KHKL) said...

live2talk, hmmm, interesting question. i guess i was thinking of a warm body on a rainy day. in a cool room, sheltered from the wetness of it all...but of course, what is a warm body without getting wet, right? i agree! :)

cumi & ciki, haha! i blame the hormones...and of course, the lack of good sitcoms these days! thank goodness for "saturday night live!" soon on starworld..hehe

backstreetgluttons, we live and learn,we crash and burn. that's the reason for the flashes to remind us of the once vivid, non-B&W images that will lead to the comings of more kaleidascopic 88:88:88. it's the becoming of a higher state of mind, they say. i cant agree more!

Tummythoz said...

B&w and wet. Quite dreary looking, no? Esp right after LL's and LFB's recent post.
Colour, come back!

Jun said...

wah, why so surreal?? have u been reading too much murakami?

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Love the raw grittiness of the B&W picture collage. It's like a prelude to the story of seeking solace in the warmth of a human body coupled with the flashback of comfort food, or at least meals that speak of happier times (;-)). The end of nothingness is starkly portrayed in the wiping out of time completely. Beautiful.

Nic (KHKL) said...

tummythoz, hehehe....yeah, but one's craving for nice food mah...so, was quite dreary lar...hehehe...yupe, yupe, colours are coming back soon! in full high definition! :)

jun, yeah, am finishing sputnik sweetheart soon...i think i must take a break from murakami-san already lar. hmmmm, must think of what to read next d... :)

lyrical lemongrass, i couldnt have explained it better. you da bomb! comfort food, yes indeed! the slurping of the noodle from the laksa soup, the hot nasi lemak, even the bowl of warm, sweet halwa...nothingness by the wiping out of time...at the touch of comfort food...that, is orgasmic! :)

Life for Beginners said...

I love "The Limit To Your Love" and "The Water" from The Reminder album. But "Inside And Out" from "Let It Die" is super sexy...

Anyway, I read LL's comment and finally got it. It's all about food and sex, yes? LOL

(Just kiddin'.)

mimid3vils said...

Oh...speechless... I don't understand :( Poor me :(

~Christine~Leng said...

ladyironchef said...

hahahaha. nic run out of colour? lol! but its a nice change : )

Nic (KHKL) said...

kenny, i have all the songs u mentioned in my mobile phone..hehe..except for The Water la...oh, i love her rendition of sea lion woman as well! :)

food, yes. sex? where got? where got? hehe...

mimi, actually, it's another shiok-sendiri post about a night after work when i was cold, hungry and craved for a warm meal. and i thought of some of the nice, warm meals i had recently. i think it's still raining here and i want curry laksa! arrghhhh...hehehee

christine, glad you luv it! :) i think sometimes, we should see things from another perspective. black and white is definitely one of my other perspectives..hehehe..

brad, heheh...yeah, nic ran out of colour, washed by the rain..but will be back in full, HD colours...hehe, like advertising for LCD screens liddat...hehee...

Big Boys Oven said...
