    Same Old Brand New Wall

    I mixed some nice clothing combinations last week, and so ‘outfit of the day’ photos had to be taken at the plain white wall right outside my door.

Imagine my incredulity when, having found free time to shop at the departures hall of the South African Airport, I found a promotion package of two Baileys for 350 Rand (SGD $35)! Of course I grabbed it.…
