it is a well known fact that we do not have winter in singapore, even though my friend ~KorpiHunaja
had managed to churn out 'snow in singapore'
and even got a DD with that.
this round of haikuwrimo will be tough for me. but i've found a number of winter kigo that work in our context. let's hope i can still survive this mania like the past three years and successfully convey a so-called wintery atmostphere of this place so near the equator.
let's enjoy the strenuous haikuwrimo exercise together!
