Yellow Fancy

  • Dec 18, 2009
  • by
For the last decade, especially at the turn of the millennium when I first moved out from home, my favorite color was yellow. A lot of the underlying color in my apartment is yellow in color. My favorite is a reclining lounge chair (my only piece of sofa) which I spent hours on it other than my bed.

Strangely enough, after the many moves, that chair is still with me (although now sitting at my parents' apartment instead). The color scheme for the end of this decade has turned red for me though. Red, white & black. No, I don't have a red sofa but I have a set of dining chairs in red leather. I also have a Dell laptop in red. I still fancy yellow and lime green in many things.

Here are some of them:

Ok, granted it's not entirely yellow but then again, I'd like to include it here and it's my list, so you have it ;-) Most beautiful place on earth as far as I'm concerned. One day, it shall be my final resting place. I hope! Be there if you haven't. I've been there many times but the best experience is still to fly across it. That way, you see lots in a short period of time. An online friend used to say it's where you see and meet God!

Seasons in the Sun
A day without the sun is a day without fun! I am not a beach person but I do like waking up to a sunny day. I lived in countries with the sunshine year round and didn't realise how much I need the sun to wake myself up (+ a hot shower) up until I went to Toronto, Canada for my undergraduate studies. That's when I first found myself without sun for most of the winter. I still cannot imagine living in countries like the Scandinavia and have no desire whatsoever to do so. We all know we need the sun to survive. But how we have taken for granted what we get without having to work or ask for. Again, on my recent trip to Toronto did I find how energetic the sun made me; without it, I'm only half alive! I almost slept through my 'holiday' although it's more work really. Anyway, bravo the Sun! When I was young, I heard the song Seasons in the Sun. A cousin of mine used to play it over and over again. It's one of the song that I can remember the lyrics since young. Another childhood fond memory. An aunt used to play Guantanamera too & it's only on my last visit to Cuba that I found out how much the world has come to my door before I eventually venture out to seek it! Interesting!

Gold
It amounts to cash, need i say more? It's called Yellow Gold in the Orient but when it comes to Gold, I prefer White Gold :-) When it comes to cash, I don't really care which form they comes in as long as it's valid!

Durian
It is exotic and it tastes like no other. I love it since a child so I can't relate to others who said it's stinky! A finger food and the flagrant lingers even after washing the hands. That's perfume to me. Love it!
5
Mango
Juicy, sweet and ... lots of way to consume it. Use your imagination ;-)
6
Lime
See the full review, "Refreshing & Tasty Lime Juice".
7
Jackfruit
Another exotic tropical fruit. I love its texture and also when eaten together with grass jelly. Lovely fruit!
8
Pineapple Juice
I'm not a fan of pineapple other than when it comes in the form of pineapple tart and pineapple juice. I love it especially when on a flight!

With butter, it's sinfully delicious, thanks to McDonald's!

The Japanese made noodles a delightful experience. Hot Ramen is best in the winter. Makes me hungry simply thinking about it!

What did you think of this list?

Oooh, I like your first three non-food items! I prefer white gold, too ;) And corn on the cob with butter is double the yellow! Nice list, Sharrie! :)
