Two drunkards causing a commotion


Its way past midnight, as usual I’m finding it difficult to sleep. I’m sitting on the pavement, watching the world-on-the-street passes by.

Kretek, cold Meiji coffee and my trusted Blackberry. Enough for now. Feeling the slight mental drain from a week’s worth of travelling.

Sitting barely ten feet from me – my ‘companions’ are a rowdy couple of drunk men, one selling omelette and rice, while the other merely screams and shouts. Twenty minutes later, they fled the scene as a police pickup truck drove towards them.
