For this week’s Pink Friday (sorry for the late entry – this mum was not able to wake up in the wee hours of the morning as the little man decided to stay up until almost midnight last night) here is my sister’s (I don’t own much stuff toy, much less pink ones) pink stuff toy, Kappo (says so in her chest). This is a present for sissie from one of her friends who recently went home from Dubai. My son instantly fell in love with Kappo + plays with her a lot. But, of late + with his recent fascination with balls + the game of soccer (he tends to think every thing is fit for a soccerball – empty distilled water gallons, pillows + blankies!), he makes Kappo a one fine, pink socer ball, much to her dislike!

I was in this funk for a while, pining over what I thought was a love lost (well it was just me thinking that actually since my high school crush didn’t even know I exist!) + made each + every heartbreak song my national anthem back then…a few years later, the habit sort of stuck + I was left associating with each + every heartbreak song or lonely love song i hear, one that stands out is this lonely ballad from one of my most favorite band, Savage Garden. Darren Hayes’ straight-forward lyrics + haunting vocals seemed to hit straight home every time I replay it on the Diskman (yes, it’s that old!). His melancholic rendition makes the emotion tangible I could almost taste it + made me ache + cry even when I totally have no clue how loving + losing that person to another actually feels!
The part I love most (and I am plucking these words from memory):
Am I all alone in the universe? There’s no love on these streets
I have given mine away to a world that didn’t want it anyway…
