My favourite colour is very nice

Far East Plaza Chicken Rice

This is an exercise in self-awareness. I still have the habit of not answering questions properly. No, let me clarify that. I still have the knack of not answering questions – by giving an incongruent answer.

E.g.

Q: What’s your favourite colour?

A: My favourite colour is very nice.

Q: Does it taste like tomato?

A: It feels like tomato.

Q: Are you hungry?

A: I feel like chicken rice.

Anyone whose ever borne the brunt of such answers, please, accept my sincere apologies on behalf of answerers of a similar ilk. My wife sympathises with you too, because I unanswer questions like this several times a day.

Q: What time is it?

A: Not hungry yet.

I’m told some wars were started because of this.

    Q: Are you hungry?

    A: I feel like chicken rice.

    Which means yes, you are hungry and you want to eat chicken rice. Haha.

  13. Haha.. Sometimes, I’m guilty of not answering questions properly. I guess it’s because I exist in my own realm for that moment. Where all I’m listening to and drowning in, is my own voice. Heex. Nice post, Mr. Miyaji. 🙂

    Cheers,
