It was afternoon when my roomies and I finally rolled out of our beds. Each of us, in the just-awake stupor, fumbled around the kitchen to break fast. We decided to concoct delicious rou bing (meat pancakes) from the leftover dumpling filling, and slump in couches for an unexpectedly intense movie.

It was a wonderful bonding moment, between us musketeers. We were three very different fellas, brought together by chance and happenstance. Aaron was an electric guitarist from out west, travelin’ with a super soft kitty. Jeff was a fierce mountain climber with a super sweet pet snake. I was a daydreamer, no pets yet.

Evenings around apartment filled with vibrations of guitar strings. Blues, jazz, metal, all kinds of music livened the place. Aroma of delicious home cooking also escaped to the streets. Both of my roomies were both excellent cooks.

Both of them also had excellent pets. I met Twist, Aaron’s shy kitty whom I got to befriend.

I also met Jess Snak E, Jeff's companion ball python. I remembered the first time I watched her eat, saw her unhinging her tiny jaw, struggling and wiggling around her food.


Alas, as the ebb and flow of time goes, they will be leaving elsewhere very shortly. Until that day comes, I hope to have just a few more lazy Sundays with them.

I have what my friends call “agrarian fantasies”.
I daydream about what’s it like to live in the good olde days, out by some country side.

I’d be pickling beautiful jars of vegetables, in a cozy farm house.
In the summer, I’d lay in the field of wild grass, surrounded by fireflies.
I love these romantic reveries.

I also have not-so-agregrian fantasies, such as becoming a subway musician.
Something about strumming some beautiful chord in a noisy city station appeals to me.
Subway cars’ll unload busy crowds rushing towards to their lives.
Somewhere, an ear’ll pick up the sweet sound of music and pause for an ever-so slight second.
At that moment, a secret gift has been exchanged.

To revel in my fantasy, I’m picking up guitar!
I’m in no way musically gifted.
As long as I keep a good attitude about it, I’ll be playing in subway stations in no time.
See you at the next stop!
