Writing & Living in Hanoi, Vietnam
The reassuring “thunk” of a car door closing.
The expectant drip of a tap.
A cat purring.
The soft breathing of your significant other sleeping.
A cheery “Xin chao”!
The curious noises your dog makes when you come home after a long time away.
The alert tone when your phone is fully charged.
The high pitched whistle of a boiling kettle.
Singing along to the Sắc Màu Phái Đẹp theme song when it comes on TV. Ditto with the Nuti Nuti ngon mà lý TV advert.
The singing cows on the milk advert.
Closing the door on a hard day at work.
The roar of the crowd when your football team scores a goal.
The collective groan when they concede a stupid goal. The heartfelt sigh of resignation when your team misses when it would have been easier to score.
The snapping sound when you share chocolate.
Dropping a rock from height into a deep, mirror-smooth pond.
The non-Ninja crunch of twigs as you try to creep through the woods.
The unmistakable throbbing sound of a petrol V8 engine firing into life.
That unique whining shriek of a classic Saab 900 accelerating hard.
The squeaky sound of an old Land Rover rear door closing.
An old Apple Mac booting up.
A Windows computer shutting down for the night.
I am done.
Four more senses to go.
