4:30 am. I walk through the market, amazed at how early some people wake up to earn a living. Even more amazing is the fact that this market has been right beside where I’ve been staying all this time. market

There and there. I see what I need. I know what I want but I stick to my list. My lists have not betrayed me – at least, not until today.

And right there, in the middle of a bustling early morning market, the totally unrelated lesson sinks in: I shall stay away from the hot pot that burned my fingers.
