As wide and as deep as the Ocean ;)

Ok ok Australia Anecdote No. 2476

(Hey no ones forcing you to read this, mate :P)

We were getting ready to leave for Dev's party at Three Degrees (fancy shmancy drinkery),

So I popped into the bathroom to change my top ( yes yes...this is that top..you know the one everyone seems to be talking about..). Now this top had a rather deep neck but fit well and hugged all the right places, without looking terribly obscene.
What I didn't realise was this - I had lost a bit of weight while I was in Australia.

The top goes on, I glance in the mirror, and I proceed to have a mini-heart attack.

The neck was literally as wide and as deep as the ocean itself.
This top wasn't coy and flirty anymore...no siree..it was..it was 'bend-and-risk-indecent-exposure' kinda BAD.
I struggled with a few safety pins, which just REFUSED to lend me some modesty for the night.

I put on my jacket, and walked out of the bathroom.
"Raaaviiiii! Would you er..happen to have some double sided tape?"

Poor, sweet, innocent Ravi thought I needed tape to wrap a present.
(In retrospect..he wasn't that wrong.)
"Mahi, why don't you take normal tape and roll it? That works like double sided, right?"
"Er..thats not gonna help my 'situation'..Trust me."

Dr. Dev needed to see it to assess the situation.
Yea.
Like that was gonna happen :P

Jai, the youngest and sweetest of the brothers, did his best to reassure me.
"Mahi, don't worry! Its probably not that bad! I'm sure you still look good!"
(Yea..good..in a totally BAD way.)


At the end, I waited for Arpu and her cousin Sheetal to arrive and they fixed the problem.
Aah.

I love guys, but sometimes...you just need a woman's touch.
;)
(In case any of you were wondering..No. I did not have any Janet Jackson-esque type of accidents.)


I had the same bad luck with a pair of pants I bought there..they were black, long, stretchy and looked hot.
That is until I actually wore them out.

They started slipping down so bad, that if I hadn't sat down after walking 5 metres, they'd have probably been around my ankles.

Wtf, mate?

Thank God I wore a long overcoat with them.
*Phew*
Looking hot can be so tedious, sometimes.

Oh..and er...E=MC square.
(JUST IN CASE u thought I was an airhead)



*Flips hair, walks off..and tugs at pants*

Sounds a bit risky, leaving your reputation as a good virtuous girl to a bit of sticky tape.

Mahi, when i say things like "wear that sexy top with the cleavage" i never thought you would take me seriously!!

And it wasnt THAT bad Mahi, girls here can wear far far worse...but i guess your top reaches the legal sigaporean limits. :p

ooo and the pants huh?? i was wondering why you SAT there in front of the fireplace, sweating, with your huge JACKET on...hahah

Next time, when the party is a little dry, im gonna have to drop a penny and ask you to pick it up....im sure that will povide a little 'spark to the festivities..
