This is part one of a few issues, like make-up, skin care, dressing, character etc etc. Wah…I am diversifying my blog so much I think I will go gila (mad) one day. BTW, guys, you won’t be interested in this blog. Go find some porn sites to surf, ok?
actually, don’t u get bored preparing to go out? make up la, comb hair la, change top a few times only to end up with the first one you chose?
Well, well, that got me thinking, observing and analysing for several days liao. First, I look around. I found someone who said it so well about the manner some women are dressed. So, without actually saying bad things about nice people, I shall let Safrraan says it. Saves my tongue from being cut! LOL!
Then, I was out grocery shopping yesterday evening I noticed that many women, very old ones, still stand and listen to the promoters promoting. (what la, boring choice of words) These cunning promoters will woo the lau ees (old aunties) with promises of whitened skin, spotless face, shiny black hair, tighter errrr, bigger arrrrr, etc etc.
At the same time, the arrogant, educated me (cis, self boasting again)will get my research done at home, go to the cosmetic counter and ordered all the things I want. I am too damn proud to stand at costmetics counters listening to promoters talking bad Yingrish leh. So, I will act like I am damn busy and got no time to spare. Tapping my fingers, I asked for this, this and this. Then, quickly run to the cashier.
I donch know about other women but I do place skin care, make up and dressing on my priority even babies after babies. Prolly, it is because I was groomed as a secretary whereby my rice bowl depends on my look, a long time ago. So, it is a second nature for me to look good, feel good, kinda thing.
Of course, I do not care much about my shape ‘cos I can always blame it on my mom’s genes and baby fats. And I also donch care about my health, die faster or earlier, doesn’t matter to me.
But my face? I do. I would plaster sun protection of the highest factor (currently it is SPF 60) before going out in the hot sun. I scrubbed my face, apply all the creams and check that I do not have any wrinkles and only allow minimum spots. I will be running to the dermatologist should I see some huge spots.
Then, my darling (this one spell with a d ok?) atm fed me with bird’s nest. Who cares two shits if it works or not? It is expensive mah, so good to get him to spend money on me lor. And I topped it with evening primrose oil (no, not EPO the blogger) and some multi-vits. All these for the sake of maintaining a radiant skin.
What about you ladies? Do you constantly check your facial skin to see that it is not too ‘charn’/teruk/chialat/horrible? No moon craters (large pores), volcanoes (pimples), desert (wrinkled) or cow dung (dark spots) decorated?
Married women with kids? When was the last time you took care of your skin?
Young girls – OI! That is your valuable asset. Are you investing on it?
*Of course, I am not advocating spending beyond our means for the sake of vanity. I used to have one tea lady in my office who was 60yrs old and her skin, fuyoh….pink-pink and her hair, all black. And she said she only use L*x soap only.*
