And here comes the not-so-academic part…
With all the school visiting more or less done, I can spend more time on other things like sightseeing and shopping. Not to mention nursing that nasty cough of mine. Yea, caught the flu bug from my cousin, Ethan.
I got a good deal from the clothes I bought. Basically coz the shops are getting rid of their summer stock and bringing in the fall clothing. Their summer clothing is most suitable for Singapore’s weather. Plus, I shopped on their Labor Day and there’s a thing called Labor Day sale.
I was able to find tees among the clearance stuff of Hollister and Aeropostale. It is heaven here for Singaporeans who love American brands like Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister, American Eagle, Aeropostale – brands that you can’t really find back in Singapore. And no, I’m not taking orders this time. Simply coz the last trip when I took orders, my luggage weighed 18kg and I had trouble moving it around. Good thing was that my family members were around to help out. This time, I’m alone. I wouldn’t want a super heavy bag to squash me flat. Haha, you can put in requests only if you’re a family member. So be very jealous now if you don’t fall under that category. *evil laughter*
I was a little annoyed about finding jeans though. Being small and short, the junior jeans are too long. I can fit into kid sized jeans but no thank you to my hips, I am now classified as an in-between. Kid size 14 is fine on the thighs and legs but not ok at the hips and waist. Kid size 16 is fine on the hips and waist but kinda baggy at the legs. There was this pair of kids Levis jeans that I loved but coz of the problem above I couldn’t get it. ARGH!
It’s a wonder I get through everyday without make-up. I brought almost the whole collection of my make-up but I haven’t used anything. Here, people seem to be more relaxed about how they look. So I can walk in the streets without make-up and don’tÂ feel like I just came from Mars. Anyway, I bought a ton of Maybelline stuff for Sis and a tube of pink lipgloss for myself. One more to the 2 tubes I already have. But I swear by it coz it gives both colour and shine. The lazy person’s way of lipcolour.
I was also looking at the whole range of Smackers lipbalms and lipglosses in Target. So tempted to get some but I’m not too sure whether they’ll agree with my skin. And why would I need more sticks of lipbalm? I don’t eat lipbalm ok. Lipgloss? Well, already have 3 tubes now… But they have like some really amazing flavours. Like the one I bought for Sis, A&W Root Beer flavoured. Then there are Skittles flavoured, M&M’s flavoured, Starburst flavoured, Jell-O flavoured…cool huh.
Yesterday, aunty took me to see the Amish homes. It’s fascinating to see how people can live without letting modern technology be part of their lives. I will talk more about these people when I get back home and start posting up the photos.
Today, went to Spurlock Musuem but couldn’t really finish looking at all the exhibits. Wasn’t feeling too comfortable…psst…ribena falls. :glare: So I guess we’ll go back there another day.
Oh and finally I get round to the birthday greetings. Uchi’s on the 10th and Yasu’s on the 11th. ãŠèª•ç”Ÿæ—¥ãŠã‚ã§ã¨ã†è²´ãã‚“ã¨ãƒ¤ã‚¹!!! Pink ranger, we await your return to K8. Hope you are doing well and that darn geezer Kitagawa will let you come back. It’s been too damn long. Blue ranger, hope you haven’t been bullied too much lately. :laugh: Ah, I would have shared some pink and blue ranger birthday cake with Per and SisÂ if I was back at home. Anyway, I hope the rest of K8 had a nice celebration for both of you.
ãŠèª•ç”Ÿæ—¥ãŠã‚ã§ã¨ã†æ„›ã¡ã‚ƒã‚“! (The girl that’s featured in v13’s banner.) May you get prettier each day. 🙂
