Big feet!!!

A major grouse in Singapore... Everybody has small feet...How is everything so small here, tiny waists, tiny feet...

For some reason, footwear and me don't get along. The dainty sandals snap after one wear, the solid ones look like men's stuff, and if i do get everything right, they don't have my size!!! For the umpteenth time, i enter a shoe store and get overwhelmed by all the dainty designs... But does the sandal fit? No it doesn't. Do you have a larger size? I ask the assistant. "Sorry madam, (i'm sure the guy was smirking) "last size, shoe no fit!!!" grrr...

Flashback to the bad old days when I trudged from store to store for the dreaded black shoes for my school uniform... bata came to my rescue then, but now even Bata seems to have 8 as their last size.:(

I think when God made me, he must have been terribly busy putting the finishing touches to the likes of Aishwarya Rai etc. Perhaps that's why, where big would have been welcomed, I got small, sigh... and where dainty would have been preferred he gave me a size 81/2..ok.ok...its a 9 in some styles.

To end on a happier note, I get my stuff from the U.S. of A where everything is big and growing BIGGER still...waiting for my next supply, S, :)

Join the club! I learnt the hard way never to get too excited about the dainty lil sandals coz in all likelihood they dont have my size..I ask the sales guy to get ' biggest size uve got'...Its official people...Giants dont deserve pretty foot wear ( Im 5'9 by the way)
