It kindles a strange feeling. I feel like an absolute stranger. Today was a scenery of cultures inside the train. I lowered down the volume of my ipod, letting the noise of my surrounding merge with the music i was listening to.
The effect is so amusing. My right ear focused to this track from WFAFNC:
While my left gave way to faint noises of:
French guy talking to someone over the phone
Two Italian men laughing and talking to each other animately
Two Indian girls getting excited over something
A German or Dutch woman (i'm not so sure) cooing her baby in the stroller
A Singaporean humming some K-pop tune
Even if i close my eyes, i heard distinct sounds of everything right at that moment. It's like a scene forming in my head accompanied by a good music. Then when i opened my eyes again, i saw a Myna bird speeding its way as the train rushed by, just in time with the climax. What a splendor.
It gives me a strange feeling.
