The Mystery of the Vanishing Feet

“Oh No!”
“Apa Njel?”
“Where’s my feet? Papa! Where’s my feet?”

Elin’s Law of Conservation of Energy

Elin’s law of conservation of energy

The total energy of an isolated system remains constant. Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, it can only be transferred from Papa to me.

Now that Papa is so sleepy I can cry louder.

The Early Birthday Presents

I remember my younger years in 90s. It was September and my parent gave me a Nintendo. Although it’s not new, it’s still fully functional and the best part of having second hand console is it came with the game cartridges. I still can remember how Super Mario early stages looks like, we have to repeat from the beginning for every failure. Long story short, it’s an early birthday present that kept me awake for many many more nights battling Koopa and Goombas.

Fast forward to now, nearly three decades. Recently my wife gave me an early birthday present, too. This oversized enhanced tamagotchi has kept me awake for the past few nights and I think for many more nights to come. Battling poo poo and pee pee.

The Mystery of the Vanishing Bolster

“Where’s Angel’s bolster?”
“You cari lah.”
“Where is it?”
“Cari. Go find. You sit and shout only how to find?”
“Who take my bolster?”
“Nobody. Who want your bolster?”
“Where BOLSTER?”
“You sit on it.”
“I found it!”

The Solution is Obvious

“Mentas yuk Njel. Driji e Papa wes kisut kabeh. Let’s go home.”
“No. I swimming.”
“Ya I know we swimming. I ask you to finish and go home.”
“I want swimming.”
“I want to go home.”
“Bye bye.”
“What bye bye. You go home with me. How do you go home?”
“Papa go home now. Later come back. We go home together.”
