I'm blogging this



All gussied up for the night out. My good bud and I decided to dress up for drinks (the chocolatey kind) at the newly renovated Denis’ Place. Joyce took this photo.



It's been a pretty crazy day today, and especially yesterday where I had this very important meeting that caused considerable angst and then I went and clogged the toilet afterwards. Wheee... No, really.. It was just an inch away from flooding the bathroom. They had to call in the heavy guns (JKR) to clean up the mess. How embarrassing.. Should have blamed my colleague instead of immediately owing up to it.

Lots of work angst lately so having lunch with the hobbits was a picker-upper. As well as making a quick trip to the mall with Marita where I took advantage of her multilingual skills and got a neat discount on a pair of shoes I was recently coveting.

Talk about an incentive to learn both Hokkien and Mandarin!!

The shoes - the shoes are kinda crazy, very kitsch.. Probably not everyone's taste but I absolutely love it. Although I have apprehensions that as a wildlife conservationist, I shouldn't really be wearing these mock snakeskin open-toed pumps.. But as a GIRL, I love 'em. And anyway, they're so obviously fake (but nicely done). And they're light purple.. And I love 'em...

But I figure, that these shoes would have their use in wildlife conservation.... I mean, I once gave a reptile lecture to enforcement officers and used a crocodile skin bag* as a visual aid (since it's their job to confiscate illegal animal products in town). So you know, the next time I give a lecture on reptiles, the shoes would come in handy. So really, I'm doing this for the cause. It was a worthwhile sacrifice, spending that RM50. I should be given a medal. Or maybe more shoes.

Since we’re on the topic of shopping (sigh), this baby tee is so cute. I saw it on Beverly, and KNEW that it had to be sold online somewhere, and lo behold, you can get it at thinkgeek.com. This is also so me. *grin*

Ok, back to your regular spending now.





*My dad mistook a 11 year old's (me) request for a bag shaped like an animal, NOT an animal-skinned bag. I was horrified when he came back from Australia and proudly presented me with a crocodile-skin handbag. At least it was from farmed crocodile but still...

you bought the shoes? oooo.... you must let me see them. I have a pair of blue mock snakeskin heels I bought in Singapore some years ago. I don't wear it often because the heels are 3-inch high!
