It’s a longish instrumental track that makes me think of soft white clouds, blue skies, cool lazy afternoons… then spilling into a sudden equatorial monsoon rain. Then all is groovy again. And I’m floating, floating up and up, not wanting to come back down.
I thought it fitting to contribute to CC7, with a track made possible by the CC movement, and posting on ccMixter. Thanks to this video that led me to jaspertine’s inspirational ambient track.
Aiyoh! I want to scream:
I catch no ball leh
All i know is Jack and Jill
But i keep quiet
I continue to sit
I nod and smile

Wrote this during a poetry workshop a few weeks ago. The instructor, a Malaysian who lived in Singapore, was encouraging the participants to use more of their local slangs in the poems. In Singapore, we have what we call “Singlish”, i.e. Singapore-English. Some say it’s poor grammar, some say it’s not but just slang. Anyway, I used it and the participants had a good laugh. It may not mean much to you bec. of the local context.
