Now, being someone who enjoys shopping, of course I’d be a clotheshorse if I have all the money in the world. That said, with what I have from part-time jobs, I like to spend them on t-shirts with witty sayings or interesting prints. I only have 11 so far, seeing as I can’t afford the more expensive ones, and I can’t shop all the time.
This is a Body Glove t-shirt I bought together with Angel (same t-shirt) because there was a promotion: 2 t-shirts for RM46. So it’s quite a good buy for RM23. I like the print; this was my absolute favourite for a long time back then.
This is a no-brand t-shirt I bought at Sungei Wang Plaza, which is a mall in KL where you can buy nice-looking stuff (if you look hard enough) for half the price of branded goods. I think I bought this for RM15 or RM20. I like the Chinese motif.
This is a Baleno t-shirt I bought for RM40. One of the most expensive t-shirts I ever bought, if not the most expensive. And that was after discount some more! (Original price was RM50! That’s like USD$15 for one freaking t-shirt.) I just couldn’t resist the cute cube cartoon. It’s a joint venture with Coca-Cola or something too, hence the pricy price.
This is another Sungei Wang t-shirt, RM15. It says Music Pirate. What I like is the unintentional reference to the rampant phenomenon of piracy in my country. We get pirated CDs and DVDs very easily despite the authorities attempt to wipe it out.
Another Sungei Wang t-shirt for RM15. It imitates the eye vision test chart; inside the chart it says U don’t know me and u don’t know my style. Visually plain, conceptually full of attitude without being in your face.
This is the t-shirt I bought from Petaling Street, Chinatown. I don’t think I’ll wear this because it’s very transparent. You can see the hanger through the cheap thin pesudo-cotton material! And since all my bras are black (I know, I’m so boring) I can’t wear this!
This is a t-shirt (brand: Orang Utan) I bought from my recent trip to Malacca for RM30. Apparently it’s hand-painted (which doesn’t seem like it, but what do I know about these things). I don’t really fancy the print but I love the message. It reads: All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brother hood (+ sisterhood!) – Article 1 Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948.
And of course, this is my new favourite t-shirt, which I also bought from Malacca at Jonker Street, for RM25. It says absofuckinglutely single! I’d like to wear it more often than I dare to because I have to think if I’m going to meet anyone who might be offended with the curse word. I haven’t sent it for washing yet so I don’t know what M will think about it. Strangely, she didn’t disapprove of my Same Shit Different Day t-shirt, which I initially thought she might. Anyway, I bought the t-shirt already, too late to disapprove, muahaha!
So, which is your favourite? 😉
ps. Next post will show my next handwritten valentine! Whose will it be, I wonder?
