Oopsie!

While munching on banana cake for lunch, I realised I haven't blogged for more than a day. Oops. Yes, I'm still eating bananas for breakfast and lunch. There are only 6 bananas left. Thank goodness!

We just had a downpour at the office. Good thing I'm not visiting the container yard this morning or my new shoes (pretty denim espadrilles) will be soaked.

Talking about shoes, I found a brand new pair of stilettos at my parent's house yesterday. It's still in the shoe box. I must have bought it years ago. While tottering around in it for 5 seconds or so, I put it back into the cupboard again. Even though it makes my legs looks wonderfully elongated, I don't think I can last an hour in those killer heels!

Rummaging deeper into the wardrobe, I found a brand new Ferragamo bag. It was a gift from my ex many many years ago. I had refused to use it then but now that my bag is looking quite worn out, I've decided to throw all bitterness out of the window and not let a good product go to waste. I remember he bought two but I only found one yesterday.

Now I remember how he likes buying stuff. While I've always been a prudent buyer, he was the one who bought me expensive watches, bags, shoes, limited edition fountain pens and all kinds of collectibles. Some of the Chinese brush paintings stored in my parent's outdoor storage shed have since been destroyed by rodents. Oh well. I don't really care but on hindsight, I should have auctioned them off for a decent sum of money.

It's strange I can talk about this now. In the past, I loathed seeing anything that reminded me of him. Well, I've moved on.

Ferragamo bag? Use! Use! Use with a vengeance. Glad you've moved on. Someone told me that the best revenge is to live your life well.

Fry - He kept lots of Chinese artsy stuff including personalised seals carved by skilled calligraphers. Dunno where they are now though.
