Sunflowers

Sunflowers, found on a sidewalk in Asakusa that seemed to be shying away from the bright sunlight.

    I like sunflower seeds too. Or any kuaci - pumpkin ka, melon ka, sunflower ka, all I like.

    Remember when we were young, people will eat kuaci while watching movies? And make all the mess on the floor? ;p

  11. Long time didnt have a crack on all the seeds. Those days would love to listen to the cracking sound of kuaci in the cinema. Is it banned in cinemas now? Seems bohsia *silent* nowadays.

  16. @Bella,
    Confirm you are a romantic. ^^

    I like sunflower because it's so sunny and cheerful. Love roses too.

    Reminds me when I was at boarding school, I made sure there is a vase of roses on my dorm table, always. If I can't go out to town to buy it, I coerce boys to buy them for me. ^^
