. THE INCIDENT: Part 7 . Previous: #theincident06 . 'Uh umma moo. Mum bum mama.' Contra kept talking from behind the fist. . His acquaintance pushed his hand further in to shut Contra the fuck up. That's when Contra had the genius brainwave to bite his attacker's hand off. . The night, lit only by the few working street lamps in that seedy part of the city, was thoroughly disturbed in a few block radius as Contra's acquaintance auditioned for an Opera, in pain. And then he had the genius idea to punch Contra in the stomach with his other hand. . Contra couldn't scream with the first hand still in his mouth. He only bit harder and there went a feed forward loop with every punch. That is until Contra kicked the other guy in los cojones and it was all over on a high note. Amid the poor guy's cries, as he rolled on the road clutching his nethers, Contra could hear a gale force coming towards him as Longshanks rushed to aid his 'buddy'. . He did not run away. He would not. Whether it was the strain he was smoking earlier, back in the Saloon, spare set of adrenaline birthed balls or just a case of good old foolishness, Contra stood his ground. He will not be pushed around. . #writer #writing #writersofig #writersofinstagram #story #theincident07 #episode #wavemayne #instalike #instagood #instaphoto #funny #fight #throwback #latergram #singapore #light #bulb #lamp #streetlight #tree #leaves #travel #traveler #traveling #travelgram #travelingram #nofilter

Singapore Incandescent #5 . The Last Contract (This is Part 1. Part 2, posted earlier, is here #thelastcontract02) . 'This is the place' 'Uh-huh' 'I know you like the delicacies perfected by our friends in Mashriq.' 'I do. It was Mussa Ben Mbiki who returned me to this cuisine.' . 'You were with him on the maiden voyage?' 'Yes. And I think in many ways, I never returned from that place. This was long before the Portuguese made a sport of skewering heads.' . 'Have you been there in recent times?' 'I was a coal miner in Tete for some time, part of the study that Thornton conducted for Livingstone.' . 'This must be around the time of the first rebellion back home?' 'The War of Independence you mean!' The Man growled. 'Pardon my British.' The Man ignored his Host. . 'The vibe here is good.' 'It always is. Shen envisioned it that way.' 'How is old Bjorn?' 'Busy being rebellious,' laughed the Host. The Chef (@bjornshen) who created this restaurant was a bit of a character. . 'Well at least someone's being the way they are,' The Man said quietly, his voice dipped in longing for a long deserved freedom. He continued as he surveyed the diners, though it was difficult to gauge if what he said was a compliment, 'The people here are easy on the eyes.' . 'And the food is pure orgasm my weary friends,' said The MC at Artichoke, a beaming old (or young depending on the vantage) Singaporean gentleman, as he presented the Menu to The Man and his Host. . The Man looked at the gentleman as if he were a part of the decor, which he was, fitting in perfect gestalt. One of the last few organic people in the tradition of hospitality, he certainly personified the spirit of this quaint modern eatery, tucked away in a little corner in the middle of Singapore. . #singapore #saturday #evening #dinner #restaurant #artichoke #wall #bulb #light #instagood #instalike #nofilter #throwback #latergram #wavemayne #story #episode #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #writersofig #beautiful #travel #traveler #traveling #travelgram #travelgram #mozambique #memories

. Grim Tidings . 'Their dreams are but a lost memory, never to be seen again. I wonder what they were...' The Man ruminated as he sat upright in his seat aboard that ill-fated flight from Addis. . '...I wonder if I should care. Even now, having done this beyond count, I wonder.' . He looked at the passengers sitting around him - sleeping, their limp forms lolling - far removed from what was to transpire. The light from the windows outlined them but not quite enough. They were alive, but not quite enough. . 'Don't take this job.' His host's words reverberated through his senses one last time. . 'One last time,' he said to himself as he closed his eyes, taking in the last light from beyond the steel bird. It was time. . 'They were dead the day they were born.' . A few paces ahead, inside the cockpit, the pilots exchanged worried looks. The checklist was at hand. The co-pilot solemnly claimed the airship as hers as the Pilot repeated her words in agreement per the protocol. . Headlines tomorrow were going to be a grim affair. . #airplane #story #wavemayne #writing #writersofinstagram #writer #writersofig #episode #monochrome #bnw #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephoto #blackandwhitephotography #bnw_life #bnw_captures #today #friday #morning #silhouette #light #window #instalike #instagood #travel #traveler #traveling #travelgram #travelingram

. A good read for the flight back home. Complete with a history of the culinary practices of Nam Viet and many recipes. Photographed with a pinch of my Passport on top.

. To Infinity and Beyond! . The Man sat on a bench outside the Cafe - an empty whisky glass on a table in front of him crying to be filled. The Bazaar at Old Quarters of Hanoi reminded him of a place he knew long ago, as a child. It was a little something the French had changed, a little something that they couldn't. . The ambience was usually a melting pot of culinary aromas emanating from the many street side food shops, filled with locals and foreigners alike - with the hosts pulling at your hands to make a customer out of you. . If it had been Saigon, you would have wanted to feast on the very air itself what with its Thai style preparations with a little Indian touch. But here in Hanoi, where the food is still cooked in a mellow Chinese way, the smell of the crowd overpowers the fragrance of the food on a humid day such as this. . In any case, The Man waited patiently for his Contact, The Host who had contracted him for the Job in the first place. That was some time ago and about one-sixth of a day away from Hanoi. At that time his Host had hinted that he should avoid this Contract. That he didn't feel right about the job. . But The Man took it nonetheless. Such is the angst of a shackled soul. He realized now that he was in a dire need of answers. About why the Job went south. And whether his Host's hesitations at that time were more than just a feeling? . 'Anything else for you?' asked the attendant. 'A Blueberry Tea and a fix on my Host.' 'I have ringed. She should be here soon.' 'She?' 'Yes. There's been a change in the management.' . At this time, amid the redolence of liveliness hanging in the air of the Bazaar, The Man recognised a perfume he was acquainted with not so long ago. He turned to find Cecilia standing by the edge of the street - a grim look on her face. . 'Our friend is dead.' . #hanoi #vietnam #saturday #evening #throwback #latergram #cafe #bar #pub #travel #traveler #travelgram #travelingram #writing #writersofinstagram #writer #story #wavemayne #urban #exploration #explorer #episode #novel #instalike #instagood #nofilter #vodka #drinks #cocktails #menu

. Many windows - love the way the old and the new come together in Singapore. Although, I am told, that given the space constraints, many times the older parts are razed to make way for the new. . . . .

. The Last Contract . The Lady returned with an envelope and started right away in a business like fashion, 'The assignment's on a flight out of Addis...' . But she was stopped, albeit charmingly, before more details could be given. Presently The Man had the back of the palm of her beautiful left hand in the palm of his right while his left hand came in on top, gently pressing the envelope into her palm. . 'Surely we can discuss this over a glass of that excellent Hibiki. I mean,' he said, his lips coming perilously close to this shapely woman's, 'surely you can forgive a working man's rudeness.' . She didn't blush. That wasn't in her playbook. But she did give away the fact that their was a tingle in the air. Normally she would put the guy in his place for touching her but maybe that empty Jack Daniels weighed in a touch too much. Or maybe it was The Man. Well, who cared? She came even closer so he could smell the individual molecules of her lipstick, 'Surely.' . She poured them a couple and asked, 'Why the sudden change of heart?' 'I am not usually crass. It's just that I am to be relieved at the end of this contract and I have no clue what I will do after this. This is all I know. And it's been weighing on my mind for some time now. . Her eyes twinkled. This was her speciality - being the perfect bartender. 'Well, the night's young. Plenty of time to figure out your next career.' . She paused for a bit and then asked, 'Deathstick?' 'Only if you can guess it.' She smiled and went behind her desk to grab a couple of fags. That's when The Man knew that his task with this woman was cut out because she walked up to him and nonchalantly, as if she could read him cover to cover, handed him a kretek - from the house of PT Gudang Garam of the East Indies. . . . . . #singapore #alcohol #bar #home #drinks #whiskey #instalike #instagood #nofilter #saturday #weekend #throwback #shelf #collection #label #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #writersofig #story #episode #wavemayne #bottle #blend #whisky #travel #traveler #traveling #travelgram #travelingram

. The Last Contract . Cecilia wasn't used to irreverence of this kind. But then she had seldom dealt with one of the true old boys - vestiges of a bygone era. . 'I will bring the package.' She broke the silence before it became awkward and left The Man to his scrutiny of the bottles on the shelf. . The Man looked at the beautiful bottle of the Japanese blend on display. He had liked No. 12 the one time he had drank it. Shame they discontinued it. Their singles were good too. Yamazaki most definitely. Plus Umeshus had been his thing at one point in time. Maybe this different blend from those same casks will work for him. . More importantly, maybe he should, in the vein of the kanji on the label, resonate with his contact - this Cecilia; try and find out why his host was hesitant about the contract back at Artichoke. . . . . #singapore #alcohol #bar #home #drinks #whiskey #instalike #instagood #nofilter #saturday #weekend #throwback #shelf #collection #label #writer #writing #writersofinstagram #writersofig #story #episode #wavemayne #bottle #blend #whisky #travel #traveler #traveling #travelgram #travelingram
