My Boring Taste

I sure have boring taste. Just look at the choice of shoes I finally managed to "force" myself to buy the other day.
If it's not nude, it's brown or black. That's about it. Same goes to my work clothes. Beige, brown, black and maybe a little green somewhere and purple for my baju kurung.

But then, I wonder why when it comes to running gears - the louder the better? Oh yes, so that Zaini can spot me from far. That's why. hahaha

Anyways, like I said; I finally managed to get myself a few pair of shoes. Work shoes. Been needing to buy some since end of last year. I usually buy my shoes and clothes during our two-weeks vacation (aren't I good? I don't go crazy clothes buying every week. ^^) but somehow got side-tracked into buying other stuff. That means, shoes that I wear now are shoes (and clothes) that are at least 2 years old (the last big purchase was in 2010).

Man, now wonder a few colleagues took pity on me, Wearing all these old clothes & shoes to work and not bothering to visit the stores despite working in very close proximity of a mall - two malls, actually. LOL

After that 3 pairs of heels, I thought I should reward myself... with this
A new pair of Brooks' Glycerin 9 (same colour, same size, same price) to replace my old one that has seen over 1,000km of road pounding. The staff at the 2XU/Key Sports store at Gardens Mall had kindly reserved the shoes for me and kept it for a week before I went there to pay for it.

    1. Zaini is more unique.

      He buys the work shirts with the same design and colour. When he sends over his clothes to the laundry, the staff there thought that's his uniform! LOL

      He reasons, easier to have the same shirts to wear 4 days a week, 12 months a year. LOL
