To most of my peers, I stand out like a sore thumb. Mainly because I refuse to subject myself to the norm of being a typical Singaporean girl. I dress way better (in my opinion 🙂 ) than the average girl and I take great pains to ensure that my nails are cut in a certain way, my hair is always chopped regularly to maintain its shape, my eyebrows are defined and my regular trips to my favorite therapists are adhered to.
I may seem very high-maintenance for most guys but seriously, if I don’t take good care of myself, who will ? Actually if you delve a little bit deeper into my soul, you will find that what I portray to the world isn’t out of purely selfish and I-have-no-idea-where-I-want-to-throw-my-next-paycheck-on attitude. Instead, indulging in myself is my one and only way to get back to my comfort zone where I know I am doing my part to take care of my health and being.
Well at least I am not using any of your money am I ? I am indulging in things which keeps me happy and what harm is all that ?
Speaking of indulging, I’ve made my special trip to the haircut recently. You know they say to get rid of bad memories, you cut your hair ? Well, apparently that is a Chinese custom. Hence I make it a point to cut my hair regularly especially when I go through a rough patch at work, home or in my personal life. As most of you know, I have had my streaks of red highlights already. But this time around, I sourced a different inspiration for my hair. Sure, people say my hair looks very Rihanna and I am extremely humbled by that. But it’s time for a change, again. Here’s my inspiration:

Come to think of it, I love her quirky dressing, especially her sheer floral shirt and camel bag ! I’ve told Iris that I am not ready for an all-bangs fringe so she merely trimmed the fringe to make it as short as possible. Maybe some day I will muster the courage to bang up my fringe to look like one of those China girls but for now, I’ll stick to my current guns. Hee ! As for the back of the neck, she chopped off all to create the sloping effect on my neckline and it seriously looks the same as the picture above ! Now I have a more defined jawline all thanks to the minimal hair on my sides.. What I need now is a thin hairband to complete the quirky look !
