These boots

When I saw these kick-ass boots in HollyGL's blog....

I suddenly remember my cowgirl boots stashed away in the closet.

These boots are as old as YK, yet they still fit like a dream. Looking at the boots brings back lots of memories. My friend Sue Kinzie bought them for me from, where else but, America.

Sue was born in Korea, but was given up for adoption as a tiny baby. She was adopted by American parents and grew up in California into a striking beauty with the brains to match. A go-getter, she soon found herself moving about in the celebrity circle... dating movies stars and landing small roles on the movie set.

On a whim, she came to Singapore for a holiday and decided to stay behind to work as a model. One fine day, she bumped into my ex-husband while roller-blading in the park and we soon became good friends with this intriguing new girl in the neighbourhood... the confident glamour-puss, who strutted about town in cowgirl boots, with a perfect figure that looked fabulous in everything, even rags.
At that time, I had just given birth to YK and wasn't feeling like the most attractive woman in the world. Yet, she was always trying to make me over, convincing me that I had cheekbones and an athletic body any woman (back home) would kill for. Well, of course I didn't believe her...
She hung around alot in my home and went back to USA briefly at one time, only to return with a suitcase full of fashionable clothes, music CDs, books and these 3 pairs of boots for me. For years, I wore them all the time...with dresses, suits, skirts... They became a part of me. Somehow, these magical boots made me feel liberated and free-spirited like Sue.
Then she went home, for good. A gypsy like her doesn't stay in a place for long. For a long time after that, I missed her and everything about her... from the French music that she played on our CD player, to her cheery, melodious voice. But, like a true Bohemian, she disappeared without a trace. Until now, I haven't found her...
