The rain just stopped when I saw my parents along with my younger brother preparing themselves. Seems like they are going out, so I asked them where they are going. My mom told me that they are going to attend my uncle's wake who had been in a road accident the other week. I pity his wife, which is my aunt and their only daughter who is just 8 years old because what happened is so sudden. Accidents really do happen in our most unexpected day and time. No matter how much we take care of ourselves, no matter how careful we are when driving, accidents are inevitable. The rain is poured hard again while me and my brother are on our way back to our home town, but we still continued going there nevertheless. We went back to my hometown where the dead is located. It's already dark when we arrived at their house since we encountered problems with the tricycle, we used along the way. At the wake, we are offered candies, but I didn't eat a lot because I'm afraid of getting tonsillitis and I'm also watching over my weight and candies are a big NO NO. I saw some lovely chrysanthemum flowers and I secretly took some photos. I don't know if there are some superstitious related to flowers. People here are very fond of believing in superstitions that's why. Despite the pandemic, I still saw a lot of people here. It's my aunt's birthday tomorrow, so a man sang a birthday song for her. She told us that it will be the most unforgettable and saddest birthday she'll ever have because it's also the last day she'll ever see her beloved husband. I'm actually still here and watching the people go back and forth. I don't know anyone here aside from the few relatives I talked to a while ago and I'm also not sociable. I don't normally talk to people if I don't know them, so I'm just here sulking at the corner and watching over these people. Time's up!

Prompts used:

Flowers
Rain
song
wake
candies

Timer: 10 minutes

Being bored made me look for an inspiration for photographya and writing. These are flowers I captured at the wake.

A macro photo I also captured secretly.


It's been quite some time since I tried free writing with a timer and prompts. But I'm really so bored and I don't have anyone to talk to while we're at the wake. Free writing with prompts is indeed a good way to be able to come up with an article if you can't think of a good article to write. There is no internet there and I don't have any games installed on my mobile phone so I tried freewriting instead of being bored to death. Now that I'm home, finally there's an internet connection and I can finally publish this.

Thank you. And yes, free writing is the best way to come up with an article if you have a writer's block. And don't worry, you don't have to polish your writing skills to do free writing, just write anything that comes to your mind. And prompts will help you play with words.

Grabe. Buti na lang at di malala yung accident. Kaya ako kahit nagbabike lang lagi akong paranoid at iniisip ko na anytime pwede akong maaksidente kaya lagi akong alert. Never ko pang na experience ang maaksidente sa bike man or motor. Pero one time muntikan na kaming mahulog sa rice field haha angkas ko pa naman yung kapatid ko nun na nasa 4 yers old pa lang 😂 Nasa likod ko siya tapos bigla akong nagpabilis ng pag pedal, kaya pala sinusuntok ako nung bata sa likod kasi dun na siya nakaupo sa gulong habang tumatakbo yung bike 😅
