How I bought a pair of sunglasses

I’ve been planning to go for a LASIK operation. Which also means I’ve been planning to get a glamorous pair of sunglasses. But I can’t choose sunglasses all by myself; I need to bring girlfriends along! One girlfriend had a camera, so I got her to video the entire shopping experience, where you can catch me in various poses, finally in the Tangs changing room where I tried on a red top together with my sunglasses.

If you have trouble viewing this, try viewing the video on its original page.
For the record, Shin invented a new sound for the effect my newly-acquired red Ferragamo sunglasses encrusted with Swarovski crystals would have when I wear them:”Sha-zom!”
They felt the sunglasses gave me more of a ‘Xiaxue’ look. I never planned to emulate her but was feeling quite sassy yesterday.
And I have no idea why Doris liked videoing me at chest level! Check out the part where she films me for a few seconds while totally denying she’s doing it. Ha!
Other funny scenes not captured on video: The Tangs ladies undergarments changing room, where we weren’t allowed to take photos. One room had a pole and a lit-up stage. Shin discovered a whip and struck with it several times, while Doris made corresponding yelping sounds. That video would have been a gem.

    That was a few seconds short short short film entitled ‘Chest Envy’. For someone with an A or at times AA-cup (sob sob), certainly envious of well endowed chest!! wahahaha! Btw, the video is not downloading, I am accessing your blog from home.

    Doris – I’ve tested it on different computers at home and it works. Try force-refreshing your page (CTRL F5). Alternatively it could be an internet issue?

    I guess Doris is right about the video not loading.
    I tried viewing and reloading the page on both FireFox and IE but the video doesn’t shows up.

    Were you using IE? I see what you mean (though I never touch IE myself, ha!). I used only W3C-compliant code, which of course Microsoft has not bothered to recognise in its browser, so the Flash didn’t load. So fed up, I used JavaScript instead to display the Flash movie. Hope it works on all browsers now… AND still is compliant.

    我的天啊! *lol* You got my attention, and Thomas’s too. Worth the 5-min wait (for the clip to buffer).

    Love the new sunnies and the vid was so funny! Really captured the wackiness that’s Vantan 🙂
    Lookin’ good my friend, lookin’ good….

    Haha, nice video, and nice sunglasses! Sexy Vaniums.
    I have yet to find a pair of sunglasses that look good on me, and Adam always laughs because my nose bridge is um, non-existent, and sunglasses fail to ‘sit’ as they’re meant to.
