My favorite things…!

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

…no, I don’t really like cream colored ponies or more importantly, girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes…or doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles…

Though I can be really particular with ramen noodles…anyway, far removed from Maria Von Trapp’s crisp apple pie and wholesome favorite things, the soundtrack of my various preoccupations would be more like this…

…TOO BAD, THE THINGS THAT MAKE YOU MAD, ARE MY FAVORITE THINGS!

Well, in the case of the people I know, they don’t turn mad, they go exasperated or worse, supportive. My current obsession are satchel bags and oxford shoes. Yeah, I currently have the young “european” vibe hopefully going on in terms of my choice in clothes. The current understanding with the boss also notes that I must be more conscious of wearing corporate clothes though she highlights that I must not also lose my “individuality” in the process. How do I do that, in a country limited with corporate wear choices, is beyond me.

Anyway, the great benefactor (aka the Hubby) bought me a new satchel after I have told him that I am afraid that the current one that I have will be near breaking point. Must I point out that I did while we were at the Ramp, standing near the shelf of satchels. And oh, the satchel is far from breaking point, just a busted up zipper, that’s all:

I currently adore my tan leather mini-satchel bought with the remnants of my Singapore dollar two weeks ago. However, the zipper couldn’t cope with the stuff I usually cram inside–notebooks, make-up kit, pencil case, umbrella and notes. My new grey satchel is bigger and can accommodate all my stuff without bursting at the seams.

I am excited about using my new bag…in fact, I transferred already most of my stuff and I predict that I will be using em for a very long time.

Supplementing my new satchel are my oxfords who my friends now associate with me.
