i think i’m surrounded by friends with no fashion sense at all. and it embarasses me like hell. but of course, i dare not tell them that.
for example, ah beng was wondering how come his good friends do not invite him to join them clubbing. i was so tempted to tell him that his dressing sense needed some improvement. i mean, look! you wear loafers without socks and with your jeans folded up? what century is this? at his age, it’s so ah pek (uncle) looking!!!!
anyway, the other day i told him about his jeans folded up. i told him it’s not cool. then he told me, he doesn’t want his jeans sweeping the floor. so i told him that he can always fold it inwards what. or don’t have to fold so much! but he didn’t understand me. and he confessed that he has a secret belief that he may grow taller in the years to come. o.O
and then ah lian keeps complaining to me how come she cannot find a boyfriend. so i suggested why not she and ah beng get together, since they seem well-suited. she was horrified! she told me, “what?? with his horrible dressing sense? no way!”
i wanted to tell her to look in the mirror. this was what she wore to a friend’s wedding dinner the other day. i asked her why was she wearing boots with her dress? she told me that she didn’t have any other shoes. “black and black go together, right? so it’s not too bad.” she told me. ya, i was thinking to myself, if you’re going to a gothic club or Marilyn Manson concert.
i am not an ah lian.
Dear I suspect You are an ah Lian too,
how old are your friends? how poor are they? can you please introduce them to me so i can tell them to buck up their fashion sense? sadly i agree, your friends fashion sense need to improve.
my goodness. girls still wear boots? happening! or is she a guy pretending to be a girl?
anyway, i’m too speechless to give you any advice. the picture of ah beng‘s feet made me lose my appetite for dinner, because i’m imagining smelly feet.
bimbobum is not a fashion expert.
bimbobum’s unofficial definition of ah beng: he can be someone with or without bright dyed hair with dressing sense which is out of this world, but he’ll always think he’s cool.
ah lian: the female version of ah beng.
