An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Today I went to check out the French Connection sale at Wisma Atria and ended up with 1 dress, 1 bolero-like jacket, 2 tops and a set of gold & silver bangles. Total damage = less than SGD250. If you live in Singapore, check it out. Satisfaction guaranteed. Tip – don’t look at the sizes on the tags, go with your feel & TRY IT ON! I tried on stuff that were size 10 & 12 even though I’m usually a UK16/18.

No way... not with the ill-fitting back. Not even at 70% off. If only I was taller.

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
