Need more formal dresses

Friday, October 08, 2010

It looks like I'm going to need to shop for some special occasion dresses as I expect to have some formal functions coming up next year. And God knows if I'm going to be just the size I am or having a little life growing in me by then :)

So it doesn't make sense to shop now although I would like to be proactive and start looking for something suitable now. Haha. First time I want to be efficient and to plan ahead but circumstances are not going to let me.

Oh well, I guess we just have to wait and see...

Itching for a new phone

I'm not much of a cell phone buff, but while I was trying to shop for a cover or protector for my Nokia phone, I found that these days all the accessories on sale are for Blackberrys and iPhones. Hardly anything is sold for the usual cell phones already!

That made me thing if I'm really out and obsolete holding on to a mobile phone that's not one of those "in" thing. Now that iPhone 4 is out, I got a feeling the previous versions could be a tad bit cheaper,right? Hmm...hand it getting itchy...wondering if I should trade in my current so-called smart cell phone for one of the iPhone.

What do you think? I'm not really willing to pay that much for a brand new cell phone, so I gotta find a good price for a trade-in first. But not even sure if the value of my phone today is going to be much of a help at all as things like this get obsolete so quickly.

Still thinking, thinking, thinking...I'm still tied down to my 24-month cell phone plan, so can't really get to change the plan for one of those free phone promotions.

One man's meat is another man's poison

It's so true that what we often find not our cup of tea is really what is truly sought after by someone else. Over the weekend I made friends with a lady who's a foreigner living in the country. She's got fair skin and for some strange reason she hates that. She's always wanted skin colour like us Asians, tan and all.

She was saying that she used to go to far extends to get her skin colour looking like ours. She would buy tanning bed lotions and sometimes get spray-ons too. Of course it doesn't last for long and she has to go back over and over to get it done consistently.

Since living her, she was hoping that the sun can help her get tanned more naturally but it hasn't been working that way.

For us we just want to more fairer than what we are. How ironic huh? I wonder if we were in each other's shoes, would we still want what we don't have?
