I am stupidly smart

There are days when you want to do everything in one go. You tuck your handphone under your armpit. Coffee cup in one hand while a plate of noodles in the other.

Then you forget about your handphone. When you reach out to place the coffee cup on the table, in that split second you realise your mistake.

Your handphone smacks the edge of the table and hits the floor. I am stupidly smart.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira

  1. So you can´t walk and chew gum at the same time, at the same time!!!!……weird.
    ………….Kidding as always, fun read plus it brought back a lot of memories, just the noodles, when I was in the US I think apart from Burger King(I´m biased since I did work there, to hell with Mac the Donlads) and noodles, I probably ate nothing else. Not healthy but delicious. Also, you can always buy one of those things that here in Spain you buy it in a shitty shop that is a mold for your cellphone in case it goes down, the mold will take more of the hit…….you Americans sent a guy to the moon, common!
