Thoughts of a Woman

A woman is not attributed an intrinsic identity because she is a caricature of a castrated man; castrated politically, socially and sexually. It denies and projects unacceptable feelings of envy  for the phallic qualities of a Gentile. Freud said so, but I think he’s strange. The Oedipus Complex, the Electra Complex….he has seen it all.

You…

Dominate my dreams. Make my toes tingle. Colour my cheeks. Cleanse my soul. Liberate my senses. Spill into my eyes. Make me weep. Believe that I am a faerie. Laugh with me. Trust my judgment. Hold my beating heart. Power my mind. You. You. You. What have you done? That I should become this pliable […]

Confessions of a Shopaholic

*Own it. Own it. Own it* I’m owning it, damnit. Hi, my name is Pin Lean and I’m a shopaholic. It has been 108 hours since I last shopped. Thank you! I know. It’s a difficult feat, but I’m clean for more than 24 hours! I made it. Today, I’m owning up to it. That […]

Brylcreem

You got any hair gel I can borrow? he asks me. Wtf? I don’t use hair gel, I retort. You know that. My hair looks like shit, he says. OK fine, I’ll see what I can do. I shuffle to my Dad’s bathroom and find a still-full tub of Brylcreem hair gel, dandruff control. I […]

41 days

It has been 41 days now. How time passes by, in the twinkling of a star. People see me today, full of compassion and concern. They ask me, are you ok? And they look at me with their sad puppy-dog eyes, rubbing my arm. And what am I to say? I should tell them the […]

It’s been a while

And I know that. While I am here, experimenting with a weight loss supplement, trying to do better at my job, praying for that mid-year promotion, going about the everyday motions of a regular day in the life of LPL, someone out there has already lost weight, got that mid-year promotion, and is living life ecstatically.

About the most idiotic thing I’d ever done

I deleted my own blog. Without thinking twice before I hit the “Enter” key. In my head, I only saw that I was deleting “From Flabulous to Fabulous”- a newborn blog I had started a few weeks ago, and then decided today that it was too tiring to go on chronicling. So I logged on to […]

Flaunt it if you’ve got it

By that, it usually means, your physicality. Or your things. But flaunting is not the same as going over the top. Flaunting is not done with arrogance, but with a sense of confidence in your beauty and what you have. Sometimes, flaunting makes you feel special when you attract some attention. But a particular local […]

Reflection

It’s a brand new year, and I’m no closer to my goal of reducing my weight by 20 kgs than I was 2 years ago when I insisted this was what I was going to do. As I age through the years, my willpower diminishes, my sense of discipline is transferred to keep order in […]
