Kay Poh

5th January 2024 Beena


Hello, everyone; today is the first Friday of the year. I painted this Blue tufted titmouse as I found the expression intriguing. I was getting desperate as I had no painting for this Friday😨. Then I came across this picture and decided to paint this beautiful little bird in watercolour.


I was amazed by the wonderful comments about this painting. Titmouse birds are curious by nature. They are small, about five to 6 inches, and primarily vegetarian. Their population has reached nearly eight million. But I think it’s good as they are small and make a lovely flute-like sound,” peter, peter, peter”,🀣🀣🀣. It is better than the noise pollution that we have now.


About curiosity, I have friends who are curious about everything. Sometimes it can be too intrusive. Once, I was at a dinner with a friend. There were others, too. However, one person asked my friend too many nosy questions. Later, she remarked that the dinner was uncomfortable😞😞. On the other hand, it is good to be curious. Otherwise, it would seem like nothing mattersπŸ˜’πŸ˜’.


 One of my friends always says his wife is “sourcing” (meaning nosy in a nice way). It is a local way to say one is nosy or kay poh. Being kay poh is disparaging☹; hence, we use the word sourcing as it sounds better. We all laugh whenever he remarks about her unauthenticated informationπŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰.


Some comments about this bird’s curiosity were: curiosity makes one happy, the bird is curious about what I was painting, the bird must have a brain to be interested or why I look different from the bird. On the last one, I often had that experience from humans, not birds🀣🀣.


Nevertheless, I had a great time reading the comments. Whatever the weekend may be, be curious about your surroundings without being nosyπŸ€—πŸ€—.
