You look different...

Although I've been very happy with my bandanas and turbans, I thought I may as well take advantage of the NHS' generosity and get myself a wig. So today, with the children in tow and the very lovely L for honest opinions (the uglier the truth the truer the friend, after all), I had myself fitted for a wig.

I tried on quite a few and had a lot of laughs along the way. The styles were quite varied, to say the least. I had decided quite early on though that I would choose a style and colour quite different to what I normally have: very dark, long, and wavy. And although I did waiver over the hair colour, with the help of L and the wig lady I did go for it: so on Friday, I have a short, straight, BLONDE wig to pick up.

There will certainly be no questions about carpets matching curtains (pardon me) as there is no way I could ever pass for a natural blonde - I am Asian after all. I suppose I can confidently say that the only natural blonde Filipinos out there must carry an albino gene. But! I may as well have fun with it. Cancer isn't a bag of laughs after all, so I should take it when and where I can find it.


  1. I read that first time round as the uglier the friend.....!! lol

    I showed the boys the picture of you I'd taken and they ALL went, wow she looks fantastic! 12 year old did say you look fantastic in your turbans too.

    As the shop assitant said, with your cheek bones you could carry any look off, though I personally thought the grey, curly OAP look was a bridge too far!

    Roll on Friday!!

  2. so, do blondes have more fun?


  3. I once asked a girl if her curtains matched her carpet. With a wink she told me she had laminate flooring!

    I suppose its inevitable that the 'blonde' jokes will now flood in so may I offer you one from my particular province?

    Q:What do you call an intelligent blonde?
    A: a labrador!

    I thank you.

  4. Can't wait to see it, will look amazing and what fun! Do blondes have more fun? .... Don't know never been brunette! Although under highlights am very much so & grey!
    Lol Ax

  5. Perfect excuse to change your hairstyle everyday! When else can you do this?!

  6. Can't wait to see you with your new hair, sounds like fun (and Al seems very excited!) . Hope the weeklies are being kind to you? Big kiss.
    Lol from another natural blonde.
