Counting Bikinis

I thought i'd only have one. I wasn't a fan of bikinis in the beginning, seriously. This was my very first one. From Bugis. Cost $25. I was 16 and Xinci organised a surprise birthday BBQ at Sentosa for me.
You know, i think it might be true. That as you grow older, you develop deeper double eye lids. Look at my eyes when i was younger and now....its not any bigger or deeper now but i think there is a slight change. Gravity and age pulls your eyelids down. Then my second bikini came, coutesy of this shoot. I went shopping with them and i think it was ridiculous. Their taste. See, for a that pink brandLESS bikini (which i think i can find at bugis village), they paid $69 for it when i felt it should only cost $15, $25 max.
And so it was never my favourite bikini because quality was poor, shape was poor (very loose), it just doesn't look 69 you know. So i took it to the dead sea with me. The tour guide asked us to bring an old (don't want anymore) swimsuit. I thought "hey, if it spoilt, never mind."
but it didn't spoil. Even after soaking it in serious salted waters and rubbing mud all over. Interestingly, its the second bikini that my boyfriend likes the most though (first is the white one, everybody likes the white one) He thinks it hot. Of course it is, because it shows SO MUCH. The bottom is only tied with the string by the side. Which is also why i'm not quite comfortable wearing it. Them my third bikini, which is from Blum at Tampines Mall. Was $25.
It was Lingfeng's 21st birthday party at Sentosa, again.
As you can see from i'm the one one wearing a swimsuit. CHURCH group *yawn*This one actually comes out pretty in pictures but not so in real life. Its one size too big for me actually. And its actually a full length top, but i fold it up for obvious reasons. haha. I was 19.

Then stopped the bikini buying for 2 years. Sara sent me the striped one when i was in Perth. It's nice, but i don't wear it often because the bottom was too revealing (a G!).
Then, i bought this at a surf sale. AUD 49, it was a Billabong.

I was at Adventure World on a roller coaster and my friends said i look xxx in this.
I brought my first bikini along with me. It lasted 5 years! But i left it behind when i left Australia. It was beginning to lose shape.Then i bought this at another sale. It was AUD 30 i think. You know, because i clocked in almost 25 hours every week working, i earned alot to feed my shopping frenzy. Having spending power is bliss. Retail therapy is my relief for stress and unhappiness. Although, i'm seldom stress or unhappy. Then again, you don't need a reason to shop.

Wait, you mean you only buy when you need to? Is that how it works?
Then i thought i'd need another black one because i thrashed my old one. So that's another AUD 49.

When i returned, i celebrated my new job with more shopping. At the same time, i had a diving trip and so i thought i need a new bikini!
I liked this one, because it fit to my body like a second skin and made the crucial body part look full without much padding.
Cost me $69

A guy friend told me before the hip bone of the woman is very sexy. That line (bone) you see going down towards the crotch. Guys have it too, but i think its called the sex muscle. Other parts that male friends found sexy were the nape, the collar bone and the small of the back.

Me personally likes the stomach (not bulging one yet not necessary needing abs) and broad shoulders. Then i thought one-peice swimsuits are sexier. I liked the print then, now not so much anymore.
Anyone wants to buy? It cost $69.
Then Bali came up and i needed a new one again! $69.
Finally, the all-time favourite by everyone. I was so sad that the coke can BURST in my bag and stained my bikini. After i only wore it once! There's a slight yellow stain on the bottom now, not obvious but you know....

I hate COKE for this. See how damaging coke is? It stains your TEETH! Cannot get out!

If only the sea was blue like Australia's. I just realise all my beach photos in Singapore were at Sentosa. How unoriginal. Except 2 in the earlier ones. One was at ECP, the other at Big Splash.
This was $59. It came in red, black, brown, pink. So glad i chose white. It stands out. I've been contemplating buying another one as spare tyre. Just in case you know, since its SO NICE.

But Yvonne stopped me and said i was silly. Dixi encouraged me though, but in a different colour.
I didn't buy. But am still THINKING!
Maybe not, since now i have the VS one-peice in black arriving. Will i get similar rave reviews to beat this one? My latest buy. I waited 3 months for this. I liked it because it looked very rocker chick and like a tattoo. $79. Its expensive because of the material. Like the blue one i wore while diving. Fits to you like a second skin.I will take this to Langkawi in March.

As the lady boss in the bikini shop says, " You're only young once! You think you will be wearing them when you're 40? Buy now, wear now, and take photos!!"

This reminds me i need to start cutting back on junk food and exercising more. Have been going out and pigging out so much that my boobs are growing bigger (a.k.a getting fat).
