Note: To be sang to the tune of My Favourite Things from The Sound of Music. According to Julie Andrews in the movie, all I have to do when I’m scared is remember my favourite things. I give it a try.

Raindrops through sunshine and oily Hokkien mee

Chunky page turners with nutty hot coffee

Empty jungle trails and silver earrings

These are a few of my favourite things

Long runs past mamaks with delicious rotis

Netflix on sofa with peppermint tea

Lift under airfoil of aeroplane wings

These are a few of my favourite things

Jet A1 in fuel tanks and purring propellers

Pale nude nail polish on fearless leaders

Buffet spread worthy of a queen and her king

When lightning strikes

When in a fight

When I’m feeling scared

I simply remember my favourite things

And then I don’t feel…

so bad.
