I like the look of bullets in a write-up. When I went back to school (for the nth time) two years ago, a few lecturers wanted our answers to exam questions in bullets – much like – enumerated items. I found an excuse to make some bullets in my blog, and I thought of one topic: No Substitutes (guaranteed limitless bullets) and one method: a survey. I asked friends and relatives about one thing in their lives that can’t be substituted. I had an image of a long list of answers in BULLETS.
- mother’s milk (too overstated)
- a child's hug
- a security blankie
- an old teddy bear named Koko
- chocolate that melts and oozes in the mouth
- seri muka
- nasi lemak
- an antique kebaya/antique watch/antique table/antique……
- a photo of a dead pet
- Marsha of Akademi Fantasia (???)
- home-made pancakes
- a best friend
- a guy who picks up the tabs (no dutch treats eh)
- a little girl’s French beret
- Harry Potter book
- beloved amah
- honey stars
- Lancome’s Blanc Expert (did I get that right?)
- credit cards
- dora the explorer (so cute)
- a hole in one
I got my wish – BULLETS.
P.S. I conclude without hesitation that my adult friends and relatives are foodies and/or materialists and/or credit laden. The children are more sentimental and found attachments in valuable/non-negotiable/irreplaceable possessions.
