The place: Some hotel in Kuala Lumpur
The year: 1994, just before I turned 18
The occasion: College graduation prom, 3 months before I left Malaysia for England for university.
The date: The ex-boyfriend (also first ever boyfriend). Newly broken up, but trying to remain civil. He was trying to get back together. I rolled my eyes a lot that night.
The dress: A blue number with a naughty slit on the side, with a cross back. Size – extra small. Oh the days of being young and skinny.
The shoes: Ugly. My good taste in footwear only occurred when I was 24.
The hair: Surprisingly, my current hairdo at age 35 is remarkably similar to this little number half a lifetime ago.
The eyebrows: Unplucked.
The makeup: Not very well done. I didn’t wear make up normally then. I still remember the lipstick. It was a deep pink, and it smelled of cherries.
The jewelry: A gold necklace which I don’t remember owning. I don’t wear gold anymore. A bracelet which I can’t recognize either.
The thing around my ankle: A friendship bracelet which fit around my ankle, which I did NOT have the good sense to remove before wearing those sheer tights.
The sheer tights: Why, oh why?
Linking up with lovelinks #32.
