"algo cerca de aqui, te sorprende kokomo

la tierra del amor, que su moneda es la flor

un pais tropical donde la piel se arrastra en el sol

entre espuma y el mar, tu y yo enamorandonos en kokomo"

Chapter 12

It was another late night pouring over images; deleting, cataloging, organizing, choosing submissions - 'the workflow'. I hate the workflow. It was 3 am and I'd been fighting to stay awake for a while now. I was about to call it quits for the night, when I heard a soft melody drifting, somewhere in the background. From the flat next-door? And a faint yet pugnent smell of... what was that?... incense? massage oil and sweat?? Perfume?

Then... over my shoulder, the sound of a whisper I couldn't make out. I turned. "Sally! What... how did... what happened to you? Where were you..."

"You know", she said. It was her voice, but with an eerie, far away tone I'd never heard before. "I've been here" she continued, "right here".

"What... what do you mean? I... I don't understand" I stammered.

"Silly, silly, boy" she giggled. "I'm not real" she said. "You know that, right?"

"But... but I... we... our photos... our sessions..." my head began to spin.

"Il-eona!" she replied.

"What? I... "

"Il-eona... iliwa. Weikeu... weiku. Dangis-i gaya" I heard her say, her voice changing to a slightly higher pitch, and taking on a hypnotic, melodic twang"

"I don't und..." I said, as the music grew louder and louder - drowning out my voice... my thoughts. The music. An oddly familiar tune. Where had I heard it before??

 

Chapter 13

My head still spinning, I closed my eyes tightly. The music... the sounds and smells... so familiar. But how?

And where was I? I was in my flat, looking through shots from earlier in the week... wasn’t I?? I felt a hand on my upper arm... a gentle shake and “Weikeueob! Wake up!” in that same musical, hypnotic, woman’s voice. And in a short, curt but sweet broken English “time to go now.”

I opened my eyes and tried to focus them in the smokey, dimly lit room. There - my clothes, lying crumpled in the corner. A snuffed out candle, burnt low. A tattered, heavy, velvety-red curtain covering a small window, hazy wisps of light peaking around the edges to bathe the dusty air. A table cluttered with incense, an empty absinthe bottle, oils, small drinking glasses one of them stained with lip stick, some scattered powders and substances I didn’t recognize, a thin red veil covering jars of some mysterious, exotic substances. A ledge with a small lamp, a crystal vase and some ornaments and knickknacks... a few Halloween decorations scattered throughout. I looked up, into the beautifully large, dark eyes or the oriental-looking girl standing over me. “S... Sally?” I said, in my confusion. “Yes, me Sally” she said, showing her smile. “We have fun, but you... too much. Too much fun - no good. Too much no good. You understand? Only little fun.” she said, gesturing with her thumb and forefinger. “Umm... I...” was all I managed, grasping to make sense of something that, at least to me, made none at all. Remember, I told myself. Remember. I closed my eyes again trying to remember and relive, to make sense of the past days.

 

When I opened my eyes again I was someplace different. A bed. Crisp white sheets. Everything is so white. There’s something...in my arm. An I.V. A hospital. I’m in a hospital bed. There’s a voice “Doctor - come quick. He’s conscious”. A tall, thin man rushed into the room, dressed all in white. “I... where am I?” I ask. “You’re at College Hospital” he said. “Can you tell us what happened to you? Some passer-byes found you, in the streets, delirious, wearing clothes obviously not yours. They brought you here. Do you remember anything? Anything at all??”

 

Remember. “Sally” I said softly. “Sally” I whispered, as I closed my eyes... for the last time.

 

------------

First - apologies. I started this as a 365. But when I added the story, it began to write itself... including the ending. Thanks to those who took the time to view the images and read the text.

The story is a tribute to 2 great creative artists: Tim Burton and Edgar Allan Poe.

 

In the spirit of Halloween, and if you have time, I hope you’ll watch a Tim Burton movie and get lost in his magical world of crazy but relate-able characters. Or that you’ll read a story from the genius imagination of Poe, or read about his mysterious death (of which the ending of this series is based).

 

Edgar Allen Poe died this month (October 7th) in 1849. He was found delirious in the streets of Baltimore, taken to hospital, and never regained coherency (or perhaps only briefly) before his death. How he spent his last five days, how he came to be in such a state, why he wasn’t wearing his own clothes, his cryptic calling out for “Reynolds” during the night, and even the cause of his death, remains a mystery and source of much speculation and theory, even to this day.

 

******* Happy Halloween everyone! *********

 

P.S. - sorry for running behind (it’s been a busy time, and a challenge just to get the daily image posted). I will catch up viewing everyone photos and comments soon!

This kitten liked to pose. His was just a whisker from my lens (wide angle macro). I can't remember what breed he is. The seller did say, but I forgot. It may look sad, but this is not a sad kitten. He was prancing around and jumping onto a shelf near the top of the cage.

 

I like the way he looked into the lens. I would have bought him if not for the price. (RM580 to RM1,000 each, US$1=RM3.50). But one thing is for sure, I won't find him there next week. They are very popular, the puppies too!!! I hope his new owner likes to take photos.

Clarke Quay is a historical riverside quay in Singapore, located within the Singapore River Planning Area. The quay is situated upstream from the mouth of the Singapore River and Boat Quay.

 

Clarke Quay was named after Sir Andrew Clarke, Singapore's second Governor and Governor of the Straits Settlements from 1873 to 1875, who played a key role in positioning Singapore as the main port for the Malay states of Perak, Selangor and Sungei Ujong.

 

Clarke Quay is also the name of a road along the quay, part of which has since been converted into a pedestrian mall. Clarke Street, located next to Clarke Quay, was officially named in 1896, and was originally two streets known simply as East Street and West Street in north Kampong Malacca. Similar to Clarke Quay, Clarke Street has since been converted into a pedestrian mall.

 

Presently, five blocks of restored warehouses house various restaurants and nightclubs. There are also moored Chinese junks (tongkangs) that have been refurbished into floating pubs and restaurants. The Cannery is one of the anchor tenants of the place. With over 5 different concepts in one block, you'll be spoilt for options. Another anchor tenant, The Arena, will be home to Singapore's First Permanent Illusion Show (starting Aug 2008) starring J C Sum and 'Magic Babe' Ning.[1] The G-MAX reverse bungee, the first in Singapore, is located at the entrance which opened in November 2003. Notable restaurants and nightclubs include Hooters and Indochine. River cruises and river taxies on the Singapore River can be accessed from Clarke Quay. One of its most popular attractions is its exciting host of CQ's signature events happening once every quarter.

It had been a disappointing weeks that Singapore entire sky was cover by thick burning particle due to neighborhood country, Indonesia, typical seasonal burning of crop during this haze period again. Weather turn complete gloomy in the late evening, cityscape was barely beyond good visibility, really feel sorry for sightseeing tourist. As a matter of fact, experience n enthusiast photographer prefer to stayput at their forbidden city . it simply pointless to carry your shooting gear for an photo-shot outing with a dull, boring n zero-contrasty scenery, indeed very unencouraging sight to no surprise. What missing with all great consistency excercise campaign done for the Global warming prevention effort to care for our sick earth" Gaya" ? Such a shame that Indonesian really need to answer for a reasonable humanity responsibility for such unconcern negligence practice year after year to their neighboring country. A real wake up call for people to people n nation to nation .

A trip out into the city of Kota Kinabalu today, to stock up at the supermarket.

As it's Ramadan, our usual restaurant we go to for lunch is closed, so we decided to check out this place instead (for anyone interested, it was Wiya Chicken Rice on Gaya Street).

The dish, nasi ayam (literally: 'rice chicken') is a very common dish out here, but the quality varies from place to place. The one we had a couple of weeks ago was not-so-good, but this one was delicious and I just *loved* the pyramid of rice! Usually places give you rice in a upside-down-bowl shape, so I was very impressed with the little pyramid!

So here's my picture of our meal, to celebrate the awesomeness of this little plate of rice :)
