I got myself a beautiful rust red silk blouse from Mango’s premium collection on Zalora a while ago, and was so excited to wear it out for the first time. Unfortunately, I forgot to account for the fact that Singapore is made out of Â heat and moisture, and soon my lookÂ was destroyed byÂ unsightly pit stains,Â leaving a salt rimÂ on the blouse. I must have spent a good 15 minutes in the office restroom trying to rectify theÂ stain. It was soÂ embarrassing… then again, my humour is derived from the general uncouth vicinityÂ of the toilet bowl, so I guess beingÂ embarrassed is something I had to get used to sooner or later. Luckily, the blouse is back to normal after a wash, but I’ve now learnt that it could only be worn when I’m certain to be in cooler temperatures Â all the time, or in less anxious situationsÂ -Â living with hyperhidrosis sucks.
Here’s proof that I’m part camera, from a selfie taken at a science exhibit when I climbed up Griffith Observatory a few years back. Seriously though, my sweaty extremities often result in ridiculously cold hands and feet. It’s a problem.
Another stain I’ve been living with belongs on my favourite pair of pants – I wore these Uniqlo jogger pants on my latest trip to India and somehow managed to get red dust and sand all over myself from exploring a couple of historicalÂ sites. They didn’t even wash off after multiple trips to the washer.Â Note to self: go to India for red pigments which last forever.
