One day, a couple of days ago, I went shopping with my sister for her trench coat for her trip. We went to many shops but couldn't seem to find something practical for fall weather. Then we walked into one shop. We looked everywhere for a coat that she saw on the billboard but it was nowhere to be found. While at that, I saw a couple of pieces that I kind of like. After consulting her for her opinion on them, she encouraged me to try them on. So I picked a few out and head towards the fitting room queue. The queue was so long. It was as though there was a prize to claim for entering the fitting room. She wandered off while I was waiting in line. After waiting for several moons, I finally got into the fitting room. I put on one of the dresses and reached for the zipper. The zipper only managed to reach the mid back. I have a dress from the same brand at home that is of the same size as the first dress I tried, but it is too loose. That is why I picked that size. Not because I'm "fatter". Put on a same dress in a different colour and size and to my surprise it fit. At that moment, my sister called, so I asked her to come into the fitting room.

Sister: This is nice, you should get it.

Me: But all my clothes are blue.

Sister: I was about to say that.

Me: ....

Sister: Screw it. Just get it.

Just to note, it's purely coincidental that my clothes are blue.

My phone is dying. Apps keep shutting down before they could even open. T.T  Anyone kind enough to sponsor a new phone? So sad.

While shopping yesterday, we walked into "I" departmental store. I didn't intend to buy anything from there but ended up buying a luggage. As we were leaving the departmental store, companion detoured and walked towards a cosmetic counter. The salesgirl immediately attended to us. After a short enquiry about the packaged products, the salesgirl told us that the promotion is a Christmas promotion. A thought came to mind. What month is it now? It's Christmas already? Christmas in October ? Did Christmas come early this year? It gets earlier every year.

Skin Tone

Yesterday, before we headed out for dinner, my aunt said something shocking to me. She told me my neck is fairer than my face. T.T  My skin tone has always been an issue with those around me. I'm several tones fairer than the norm. My sister said that I'm like part of the Twilight cast. It's become an issue ever since I started using cosmetics. By cosmetics I mean concealer only to cover up my dark circles. If it weren't for the dark circles I wouldn't even apply "makeup". Such a hassle. Even the promoter at the makeup counter recommend that I use the lightest tone because I'm too fair. I doubt their recommendation sometimes. That's because I think the tone that they recommend makes my face even whiter than it already is. Don't need to look like Chinese opera performer or geisha. Fortunately, I don't apply full makeup ( truth being I don't know how). Sigh. How to solve this different skin tone issue?

Meet "Snappy" (not real name. Nicknamed her Snappy without her mother's knowledge because she always bites like an alligator). One of the lucky shots that was taken when she wasn't so against "cameras". Not taken by me.
"Snappy" drinking after a long day at puppy kindergarten. The only photo that I managed to snap without her fidgeting and avoiding the camera.
Being bathed to remove other pooches' saliva.
That's the doggy kindergarten / daycare. Those kindy mates weren't very friendly. Especially that beagle. Barked non stop.
