Let’s talk about colours! Do you like colours? Because I love it. You know, the whole entire rainbow.

Maybe you might like monochrome instead of hue. Monochrome means black, grey and white aka no colours.

In Australia, we spell it as “colours” with a U. Strange, I know but that’s our English here.

My favourite colour is RED

Let’s take a look at what Google says about the colour red.

“Red is the colour of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.”

It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a colour found in many national flags.” (Source: Colour Wheel Pro

Why do I like the colour red?

The colour represents one of my zodiac signs, Leo and also the element of Leo is fire. It shows the emotion of anger, which is in relation to me since I have a huge temper of anger and rage in my life.

Red also represents power, beauty and courageIt is very common in our world as it is used for warning signs & attention. It’s very pure, bright, passionate and subtle to my eyes.

I also have a lot of things in my room and around me that relate to the colour red such as the LED lights on my laptop keyboard, my bed sheet, my pillow, my chair, my pajamas and my favourite funnel shirt that has a dominate of red of it.

The colour red also shows romance. To me, I love anything romantic such as Korean dramas, tv shows, movies, stories, book and pretty much anything related to it. I also revolve around romance such as having a significant other that I love very much.

My favourite fruits that include red are cherries and strawberries. Cherries are my second favourite fruit along with strawberries.

In some Asian cultures, red symbolises ‘good luck’, ‘happiness’ & ‘prosperity’. An example of why this represents to me is because since I am Vietnamese, red is shown on the Vietnam flag to show those symbols. Even during Lunar New Year, we get red pocket money.

But what is the real reason I like red?

There is no definite reason for liking red, to me. The colour is just ‘attracting’ in my eyes.

So what’s your favourite colour? And think why do you like that colour?
