The tale of the glitter coffee @coffeebydibella

Something was up. And the matron knew it. She noticed every time the little girl’s feet slipped through the cracks and merged with the background. She was impossible to catch. And the matron’s old bones gave way every time she tried to follow her tracks. She was always too fast. And there was always something…

The tale of the prawn curry at Anju Coco, Havelock Island

The day hangry little Berty Bubblehood bumped into the guy she loved, she knew this was not it. She looked at him and thought, “This is not the guy I dreamed about.” Fair enough. He wasn’t as tall. He didn’t have the perfect set of teeth. He didn’t have an enchanting smile. No. Nah. NEVER….

The tale of the grilled tuna at Full Moon Cafe, Havelock Island

A pensive silence hung around, making the very air around him heavy with discomfort. He looked transfixed into his phone. A memory came flooding back to his mind. It was him at his mother’s funeral.

And as he toiled through the fields of ambition, a little seed of doubt was planted in his wife’s mind. She raised an…

The tale of the banana loaf cake @ohdoughmumbai

The cool breeze ruffled his hair as he sat by the seaside. He looked at her picture staring back at him on his phone. Her golden hair. The sparkle in her eyes. The way she ran alongside him every morning… She was his one true love, always there when he needed her. Her warm cuddles…

The tale of the @godiva chocolate bars

Tale teller: @the_ink_decoction Things had gone wrong. Not just wrong, horribly wrong. She found work lying on the table that had to be done. Yes, the one that was supposed to be submitted today. Yes, the one she had forgotten about. No, not the simple one, the tough one. No, not the one you usually…
