Fluffy has been in Singapore and the Harry Potter Exhibition opened in Singapore’s Marina Sands at the same time.  Yes, Fluffy was in Singapore to attend a round of meetings/discussions, but all work and no play… (fill in the blanks with the corrects words).  Well then…

Read a realistic review of the exhibition here.

The Playboy came along because he had his own round of meetings/discussions.  Well, actually the Playboy had the meetings, and when Fluffy’s bosses at the science lab found out, decided to send Fluffy to piggy back.  (Yes, the Science Lab is part of the Playboy’s family’s conglomerate *sigh*).  Enough about work!

The Marina Sands has an infinity pool that is three times the size of an olympic pool.  No swimming for Fluffy! Singapore was hot!  Sweltering!  Fluffy is grateful for the air conditioning.  No sunbathing of any kind! No! No! No! Despite the extremely high SPF sun block, Fluffy still turned red!  Luckily, Fluffy had cleverly packed some stylish caps… but forgot sunglasses.

No shopping this time around though, despite the Great Singapore Sale going on because it was simply too hot.  Other than for work, we went out only when the sun came down – much like vampires.  Even then, it was still hot, hot, hot!

Fluffy also succumbed to participating in a survey by the Singapore Tourism Board.  The Playboy was not pleased.  Har!  Fluffy ignored his scowls, because Fluffy got a “thank you for participating” gift.  So there!

Fifty Shades of Grey

The book “Fifty Shades of Grey” has been on the best seller list for a bit.  Fluffy downloaded the e-book and later on the audiobook.  Fluffy did not tell anyone about it (afraid they’d want to borrow the lot *cringe*).  Of the entire Fifty Shades Trilogy, Fluffy likes the first one, “Fifty Shades of Grey” because it was quite humourous.  The other two books, not so much.  In fact, the story lines are quite dark – not humorous at all.

One fine day, someone asked Fluffy about the books.  Fluffy gives honest opinion, and of course… does her research on Wikipedia.  Huh?  The entire series started as a fan fiction on a Twilight fan site?  Edward Cullen and Bella Swan instead of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.  Fluffy is crushed.  Admittedly, Fluffy is a Twilight fan (the books but not so much the movies other than Taylor Lautner‘s high drool ability level).Fluffy imagines the Playboy as Christian Grey *hehehe* sans the pain toys and stuff.  At this point, Fluffy wonders if the Playboy plays like Christian Grey… hmmm… Fluffy does not have an Inner Goddess, maybe an M&M Spokescandy instead.

In the name of further research, Fluffy reads the book again (audiobook not recommended in this case), with the Twilight series in mind.  Similarities found, definitely.  Fluffy doesn’t care, Fluffy still likes “Fifty Shades of Grey”.

The Fluffy Blonde needs new shoes because she is attending a formal dinner with very proper dignitaries.  The Playboy has just come back from a business trip.  His father has sprung this dinner thingy on him.  Maybe he was feeling tired or jet lagged, but because Fluffy was there when dinner was sprung, Fluffy now has to go with him.  Maybe he was thinking that if he had to be all stiff and polite, Fluffy can learn a thing or two.  He even couriered a beautiful dress.

Alexander McQueen Evening Dress

Fluffy was at work at the coffee house when the courier arrived.  A bit of drama there when the other Baristas saw what was in the box.  Now everyone at work knows of the non-Romance.  The dress fitted fine (a bit tight admittedly, so Fluffy must live on egg whites for the whole week), but needed to be adjusted in length.  Fluffy must heave a heavy sigh here, since that is always the case.

Alexander McQueen Silver Skull Clutch

To match the dress, Fluffy will be using a firm favourite – an Alexander McQueen evening bag.  Its pewter in colour so matches almost everything, including Fluffy’s platinum and diamond earrings, necklace and rings.  The jewellery is not new, gifts from various members of the Playboy’s family for special occasions.

Fluffy is in a ditz.  Dress – check. Evening bag – check.  Shoes – aaargh!

Keep Calm and Buy Shoes

When in doubt, do research.  What would life be without Google?  Anyway, there’s an article “Buy Shoes that Fit Every Time” by Wade Meredith.  The article is old, but it is still relevant.  It was meant to advice readers how to buy running shoes, but hey, shoes are shoes.  Fluffy just needs to find shoes that bling, matches the dress and the evening bag.  The easiest way is to get shoes in the same colour as the bag, failing which, shoes the same colour as the dress.  Shoes the same colour as the dress is a bit boring though, so Fluffy is determined to get a pewter coloured, blingy shoes with sky high heels so as not to be towered over by the Playboy.

Fluffy went shoe shopping pin the afternoon, since the article said to try on shoes in the afternoon when “your feet are fattest”.  Well, Fluffy is at the fattest no matter the time, but still, maybe there’s some sense there.

Ta-da!  Fluffy’s new shoes…
