What I Saw on My Way Home from School

What I Saw on My Way Home from School

On my way home from school yesterday, I noticed the usual lunch-time crowds returning to the office after their hasty lunch at cafes, stalls or restaurants either in groups walking along or in their cars caught in a traffic jam.

I was particularly interested in a group of young office girls, all dressed smartly, chatting and laughing as they emerged from a cafe by the sidewalk. To me, they appeared to be beauty contestants as they were wearing striking outfits and their faces were beautifully made up. Some of them stopped at a roadside stall, buying freshly-cut local fruits such as papaya and pineapple which they bought and took along in plastic bags.

As I was passing a crowded shopping complex, I saw mainly housewives and their children, loaded with parcels, coming out of the building to get a taxi home.

An eager group of young school children was seen surrounding the Magnolia ice-cream man who was doing a roaring business as it was a hot day. The children were happily eating their ice-cream of various flavors and colors.

Next, I passed by a stall selling durians piled high by the roadside. Many people were picking their choice and bargaining for a good price but the fruit vendor did not seem interested in entertaining them. Then there was a medicine-pusher squatting on the sidewalk displaying his merchandise to the crowd of curious spectators milling around him.

Soon, I found myself on a quiet road leading to my house. It was a relief to be home again.
