Under This Tree

bird sits on my shoulder

Inspired by an Indian neighbour who takes his pet parrot everywhere he goes. I saw them reading the newspapers today. Also, I noticed, for the first time, that the bird was chained. I imagined that, not only can the bird talk, he also has a sweet tooth, and especially loves Gulab Jamun, an Indian sweet so sweet it can make your nose bleed.


I saw 2 people carrying whole sugarcanes today. The sugarcanes are what Hokkiens give as offerings on the 9th day (today is the 7th) of the Chinese New Year to the Jade Emperor of Heaven (天公, Tiāngōng) in the Daoist Pantheon.
