Now that the summer is around the corner we are on a lookout for a few summer (beach friendly) pieces to add to Dr. Fab's wardrobe. So I thought why not share my online
What do you think?
"It" is less than 10 day away and if you celebrate it then you better get your ducks in a row. First things first, gift for your man. While I and Dr. Fab do not celebrate Valentine's Day we do not shy away from an excuse to shop. And if I had to buy him a gift it would be something quality and something that he would not buy for himself. Here's what's on my list:
Over the years the frequency of His & Hers segment has gone from weekly, to monthly, to twice a year, to (now) once a year! It is partly due to my laziness and partly because Dr. Fab is very (very!) picky about his pictures. Although he did feature in a few solo outfit posts of his own!
Anyhoo... this is what I have got for you this year.
“Please, don’t talk to me about your past. I don’t care who you were or what you did. I don’t want to know who you slept with or who you loved. I don’t need to know who hurt you or disrespected you. Please, don’t tell me about your mistakes or who almost died for your love. I don’t want to know the words you didn’t say out of fear or the ones you said out of anger. I don’t need to know about the gifts that were given to you or the ones that remind you of certain places or people. As a matter of fact, I don’t want to know anything about you. I just want to know you with me. As a matter of fact, I just want you to tell me what it all means to you without telling me the reasons why. Please, don’t show me who you were, but who you are. I want you to create yourself, liberate, love, laugh, expose and be with me who you’ve always wanted to be, because only then, I’ll be able to show you who I am instead of who I was and what I did.”

Look who has been making appearances on the blog so frequently now. Ahem Ahem! Either my photography has gotten better (in his opinion) or he has gotten comfortable with being in front of the camera. Either ways, I am happy to share this space with him. So far we have only been able to capture his weekend style. I need to make time and take pictures of his office-wear. He looks damn sharp! (;
One of the rare occasions that Dr. Fab agreed to let me take pictures for a complete outfit post and not just one picture! You have no idea how HUGE this is. He is super meticulous about his photographs, so the fact, that he approved FIVE for this post, is a MONUMENTAL achievement (for me)! :P
You know as lucky as I think Dr. A is, I also think he is super brave. The other day he came back from work and I was in the kitchen and in a foul mood (for no fault of his). He continued being his usual-happy-go-lucky-self and I realized, "Wow! He has no idea that he is walking on a land mine!" I mean I could have blasted (not literally, of course!) at any second and he would have no idea what happened! That got me thinking ... and I concluded that men are quite brave. Between the time that they leave home to the time that they come back, a million things could happen in a woman's brain (for no fault of their's) and they would have no clue that they are entering a war zone. It is quite unfair really. For the record: I didn't blast and he didn't even come to know that I was in a foul mood. With practice (and experience) you learn to control your moods. (:
I get my nails done at this nearby nail salon run by a Taiwanese couple. They are the best manicurists I have ever come across. Although ... I prefer the wife, let's call her Jane, a little more than the husband. For no other reason except that he gets really annoyed when I do not take his suggestion into consideration.
I always ask for Jane while making the appointment. But sometimes when they are busy he offers to "prepare" me for the manicure. When I ask him to do things differently (just like how Jane does) he grunts and making sounds of disapproval. He is a kind man, but I find his reaction amusing. Every time.
I would confront him but I choose to give him benefit of doubt due to the language barrier. May be there is a gap in communication or it is just a classic case of "lost in translation". But it also makes me realize how deep rooted male chauvinism is in all Asian societies. We simply choose to tolerate it and sometimes ignore it just because who is going to deal with such confrontation on daily basis?
