The long and short about Homely Girls



Despite that very embarrassing situation with Office Bimbo the other day, I’m glad to report here that there haven’t been any awkwardness between us. In fact, we still lunch together almost everyday.

I suspect this is because besides me and Nerd, the rest of the folks in the office don’t really like to have lunch with her. Heh.

Anyway, one of the more popular lunch topics recently is about Homely Girls. Or to be more specific, how all the eligible men in Office Bimbo’s life have been getting snatched by Homely Girls.

I told her not to worry too much because the solution to her problem is actually very simple: All she needs to do is to become a homely girl herself. I was even nice enough to compile a list of that makes an ultimate Homely Girl for her:


1) The 5 Shouldn’ts
Basically, a Homely Girl shouldn’t 1) smoke, 2) drink, 3) club, 4) swear, 5) gamble. Not a very tall order lah, haha. Come to think of it, they also shouldn’t 6) spit. Eh, as in spitting in public.

2) Fashion:
If you really want to be a Homely Girl, then you should do your shopping at very homely and wholesome fashion stores such as Giordano, Bossini, and Hang Ten. Of course, every girl needs to pamper themselves from time to time such as during Chinese New Year. On special occasions such as these, it’s permissible that you shop at high-end boutiques such as This Fashion.

3) Dining:
A Homely Girl takes pride in dining at the humble kopitiam, and prefers char kway teow over caviar, champagne, and foie gras. In fact, they often cook their own meals, and scout for the freshest ingredients at wet markets with their mums. They avoid expensive restaurants unless it’s a special occasion such as birthdays or anniversaries. Only then will they finally relent and place an order for a Crispy two-piece meal.

4) Jewelry:
Even Homely Girls like to get pampered with gifts from time to time, and I would recommend the highly rated Perlini’s Silver. For special occasions such as proposals, you can wow your Homely Girl with a nice bling bling from the very branded Taka Jewellery. In fact, instead of the usual boring diamond and platinum, a much better choice would be good old yellow gold and exquisite jade bangles.


I have no idea why, but after going through my list Office Bimbo told me she would rather be a spinster than to be a Homely Girl.

Sigh.


With Love,
Sibeh Sian

    sengkor: its splinter la.

    sian: seriously, you have to be joking.

    homely girls - well why not try miri, or some small town place in Indonesia? rupiah cheaper - u save on the currency exchange some more.

    and don't stop there! china? india? or just go straight for the forbidden - havana.

    I love pasar malam food and I think This Fashion is overpriced -.-"

    I purchase my clothes at around 10 bucks but they are of good quality and I see people selling them at MUCH higher price.

    Usually they have to jack up the price to cover the rental etc.

    I feel that elegance doesn't come from what brand of handbag you carry but how you present yourself.

    I rather use my money to give my mom a surprise than to go for manicure -.-

    I don't look like a homely girl, don't wanna be one but neither do I want to act like a bimbo. I detest people who aren't born stupid but never fail to act like one. Zzz ~_~

    my idea of being a homely girl is:

    I clean my house, I washes the dishes, I bath the dog and I eat kopitiam food because easier on my pocket.

    But if you dont bring me out for movies at least once a week, out at pasta mania for at least once a week and don give me that tiffany, you're so dead.

    and i think i very homely leh! :D

    I'm still a secondary student but for now, if I was a guy, I would prefer those of sophisticated working class instead of the homely type!
