Tissue Paper + Dirty Laundry + Washing Machine

 Tissue Paper + Dirty Laundry + Washing Machine  



it's wardrobe changing time for me when i met with the above equation... =) ....

My dear Mr Ang had forgot to empty his pocket of tissue paper before he threw his shorts into the wash approx 2 weeks ago...imagine our horror when we realised that our 'clean' laundry were super flaky when we were taking them out to dry at approx 11pm (we wash our laundry at 10pm every monday and thursday) .....

had a hard time shaking them off in the toilet.... was such a funny sight (now that i'm thinking abt it) when bits and pieces of tissue paper were floating in the air like snowflakes.... had to re-wash the whole basket of clothing the following night and had to throw away some clothing, the 毛毛 kind, which simply had too much tissue paper stuck on it... i threw away 2 track pants, a t-shirt, an inner top and an inner bottom while Mr Ang threw away a singlet and a pair of shorts.... my clothes are all the cheap cheap kind so wun feel heartache about throwing them away BUT by throwing away 2 pairs of track pants = I have no clothes to wear to work..... =(....

the last 2 weeks of school attire were disastrous.... i couldnt mix and match any decent outfit.... couldnt find enough dresses that covers the shoulder, in not striking colours, with no plunging necklines and are long enough to cover my knees...... to make matter worse, the last batch of clothing that i ordered from cleocats went missing in the mail.... first time lo....sianx.... 白白不见$200..... angry....but what to do????.... cheapskate dun wanna pay for registered mail just because normal mail is free lo.... really feel like slapping myself....no more online shopping for me liao....

i m starting to find fault with the inferior material that are used in most of these online clothings.... tend to be very light, flutters in the wind too much, very flimsy trimings etc....that's y i kept emphasizng that i need to get "decent" clothing.... and also not young anymore... cannot always wear so causal and young to work liao.... but come to think of it.... i have never work in a place that requires me to be well dress de lo....or maybe i was just too heck care about my dressing liao.... wahahaha...

anyway since bangkok trip for dec is cancelled as alfred cannot take leave due to some navy course he's attending, and my big three birthday is approaching, i had decided to pamper myself a little....me gonna to spend the air ticket and accomodation money that i had put aside for the trip, which is approx $400 to buy at least 10 work dresses the moment weekend lessons are over.... (last week of lesson this week...yippy ya yo)

criterias for work dresses:
1) cannot be in striking colours - else too striking for kiddos to concentrate
2) cannot be more than $35 each
3) must be near my knee length
4) no v neckline
5) must cover shoulder (prefer with a little sleeves)
6) cannot be translucent

so far gotten a greenish dress at $33.90 from one of the shop at amk hub... =)..... 9 more to go....
