Sharpening My Writing Chops

I've been working on this for some time already... Reading good copy to learn from brilliant writers,  but there never seems to be enough time and energy, and my brain doesn't absorb knowledge as fast as Scarlett Johananssen's character did in the Lucy movie. It'sa very, very frustrating uphill climb. So many different styles, topics, specialisations. I wonder how long it took my boss to reach the (super sky high) level she's at.

That Girl is so Pretty

How come I see so many pretty girls on my newsfeed, but when I look into the mirror.... So average ah? Looking into mirrors must be really wonderful experiences for them haha.

I just saw a girl's wedding pics on Facebook.  This girl... Since the the tender age of 13, has been very pretty. And with makeup and nice hair... Even prettier! She looks like a delicate fairy wtf why I cannot look like maybe even half-bred fairy?

#firstworldproblems aside, it really sucks to not one of The Chosen Ones who were born pretty with nice facial features and bodies. What did I NOT do to deserve the same? I'm not a nasty person and I haven't done anything  bad. In this life, at least.

And no, I'm not fishing for compliments.

I have a problem

And I can't stand it. Everything I do, say and write needs to go through a preemptive  "How would he/she/they respond". And it is so frustrating. Can't even explain it but sometimes I want to stab myself. And don't even say "you don't have to do this" coz you won't understand until you are in my shoes. Sometimes I wish that everyone, including myself are pre-programmed robots who all follow the same rules GOODNESS.

So easily irritated today. Fought the urge to kick a girl strutting in SLOW-MOTION at the mouth of the escalator. Later, a lady on the phone brushed past me and NEED TO KNOCK INTO MY SHOULDER SO HARD ANOT.

Enid Blyton and Naughty Stories.

When I was a kid, I loved Enid Blyton's stories, and I think I've read almost all, if not all her books (and she wrote hundreds!). Recently, I picked up a few to read (to re-live my youth) haha. And OMG everything seems so "wrong". She writes about naughty boys and girls getting spankings and punishments. And the way the dialogues take place. I want to laugh.

But that aside, I can see why her books are so.. magical somehow. Even though yeah. When she was living, lots of people didn't like her for being "a controversial woman". HA. The people who bashed her would  be shocked if they saw the world today.

Time for Skorts at Zalora SG!

Hey, you know... Dressing casual doesn’t mean you can’t look girly! Do you know what are skorts? Essentially, they are shorts that look like skirts. To give you a better visual image, the dictionary says that it’s “a pair of shorts with a flap across the front, and sometimes the back as well to make it look like a skirt”. And guess what, for those who are love to wear skirts but hate the possibility of “zhao gng” (accidental flashing), Zalora’s got the perfect solution! In a casual wear collection from many, many brands, you can find skorts of all styles and colours! Brands include The Tinsel Rack, MDS Collections, Moon River, Seoul in Love, and of course, Zalora and more – so take your pick!
As always, here are some that caught my eye. :)

BEGA (Side Overlap Skort -- Black)
Simple and chic, this one can’t go wrong – wear it with just about anything and you’re good to go. Featuring a side overlap design for a touch of style, this skort is perfect for looking fun and dress.

Sophialuv (Chloe Skorts In Spring Florals)
Here’s one for a fun, flirty look. It features a front flap panel and back zip. Plus, it comes with side pockets! :D

KLEEaisons (Skort With Waist Strap Tie)

The Tinsel Rack (Byron Buckle Skorts)
Get fiery with this pair.  This one has an inner lining, complemented with a buckle and concealed back zip. Comes in black and white colours too!
