Notice anything different? Yes, I have a new chair.
Despite the Great Singapore Sale (30 May to 27 July), Hak Sheng did not believe in giving discounts. I know it's quite crazy to buy a chair for your toys. But my toys are so lovely. They don't talk back. They don't need to be fed. They sit quietly and pose very willingly for photos.
I am very picky when it comes to footwear which explains why I'm always wearing my Ipanema sandals. Unfortunately I noticed Ipanema sandals are priced higher and higher the past year (without any change in footwear engineering) and I am waiting like forever for a good discount. Anyhoos, it being the Great Singapore Sale, I thought it was a good time to stock up on sandals.
Now for as long as I can remember, I've been brainwashed into thinking Scholl sandals are comfortable. They are also pretty pricey. Which is why I've never bought any. Recently there was a sale and indeed there was a grandmotherly pair of Scholl which I found rather comfortable. The final price was about the price of a Ipanema anyway so I decided to buy my first pair of Scholl. As I age, I find that I do need comfortable sandals.
Well, I wore them out one day and horrors. They squeak. Not once or twice. ALL THE TIME. It goes like this - uh un uh un uh uh uh eek ik un ik eeeek. I'm so pissed. How do I get rid of the squeaks? If the squeaks never go away, it means I can never wear this pair of Scholl to the library, a museum, a cinema, a school, a church, a cemetery, a courthouse, Parliament house, a bookshop or go out at night.
It's been a while since I updated you guys on crimes in Singapore. Not that we have a shortage of crime... Anyway, last night, a legless body was found in a bloody suitcase. You can read here for more details. Police are now looking for the legs.
Exciting update: Two men connected to legless body case arrested. Read here.

I will do my June giveaway once I receive something in the mail. See ya.
