Decided to write a short paragraph every time I learnt a new or forgotten word… how is my first attempt?
Staring at his bright yellow espadrilles from afar, my heart fluttered… no… thumped with envy & excitement… With a soft white cotton shirt barely hiding his muscular broad shoulders and a pair of powder pink capri pants, he carried off those girl-attracting colours with full animal masculinity… Needless to say, he is surrounded by a bunch of immaculate girls attempting to look superciliously posh to others yet blushingly cute while joshing in front of this Asian Adonis.
Tino Ang is the honcho of this private party in the fabulous suburbia by the East Coast and me? I’m just the clumsy barista cum waitress cum cleaner cum owner of the tiny little cafe Jav’s Loft, invited to this fancy party in his nearby family mansion.
