Showed off another one of my Far East plaza acquisitions today - a heavy, raincoat like dress teamed with a corset belt complemented by black stockings and my purple plastic booties. It's really the 'in' thing these days - the corset belt, black stocking and booties. Of course it did turn a few heads with the office people, and of course, C was anything but complimentary. Best he could muster was something like, "if i gave you a broom, you could sit on it and fly". Eh, i can't help it if ordinary people don't keep up with fashion trends, it's too bad they are ordinary and boring in their dressing. I explained to C, since spore is getting really crowded these days, me dressing very differently means he could easily pick me out in a sea of crowded people. He had to agree on this point.
GV at vivo charged $16 for a movie tix today cuz of their bday bash thing, which is kinda stupid we thought. So we rejected the movie, and went down to Superdogs for a meal (as highly recommended by Billy who claimed it was the greatest best dog stand in SG). The prices were the usual fast food prices, but of course C being C, ordered the biggest dog with extra toppings of everything. One thing that never cease to amaze me till now, is how my Concow can turn even a cheap meal into a rather expensive one. Price of normal superdog = $8. Price or normal superdog with extra everything = $15. HUH. Dog was all but dead within 5 mins, and C went back to order a super burger (you guessed it - with extra everything). Total price of our fast food dinner = $35. HUH HUH. How does one eat $35 of fast food??? And we rejected movie because of $16 tix?? The economist would ask, the utility of a $32 movie vs $35 fast food meal is how different?
Later found a gigantic candy store at vivo basement. C wanted some candy. I imposed a $10 limit, but at check-out, the bill came to $35. HUH. You guessed it - extra supersize of everything.
Moral of story, supersize bf = supersize burgers and dogs = supersize candy = supersize clothes = need gf with supersize bank acct. Any rich tai tais out there?
