my girly meet-up with jy ended with us browsing the stacks at toa payoh library. (while we enjoy doing that, there always is a part of us that feels we might need to get more of a ‘life’..)
she cuts a lovely but forlorn figure over in the corner.
we made an interesting discovery while hunting for a recipe book – the topics bled from cooking into dieting/health, then grooming, make-up and fashion, followed by dating (clearly, the shelving was done by a sexist, or someone who is unaware of/can’t be bothered to do anything about these tropes). the shelves opposite were concerned with pets – cats, then, if that’s not to your liking, dogs. it’s like the stereotypical single girls’ life laid out for you, failing which, you could be the cat lady.
