3 summers ago, I decided I was getting too old to pull off my very treasured, trustworthy babydoll.
And so I gave the dress to my daughter.
Fast forward to the present week; I’ve asked for the babydoll back.
Forget age-appropriateness. The surging heat and my terrific weight gain have made me, desperate. I’m trying to get through a Singapore summer without suffering from heat stroke and heat rash, decorously.
Worn without heels and accessories, the Babydoll goes quietly to work.
To Grandmother’s house/Peranakan Museum/Girls’ Lunch we go/go/go.
Needing to escape from the city, we convince Dr Chan to drive us as far away as possible… (Shoes/sandals? Optional!)
The road we take leads us eventually to the sea. Joy!
The Babydoll and I hurry along, kindred spirits in search of adventure.
