Hot Pink, Not So Hot


A couple of months ago, I went lingerie shopping with Bee in KL and bought something similar to the one shown in the picture.

It was a hot pink see-through baby doll dress with black lace trim. Very sweet, very pretty, and naughty in an innocent way.


It was the only thing that caught my eye in the whole boutique, everything else was either too boring or too "flammable".

As the sales assistant was processing the transaction, I heard a woman's voice asking another shopgirl, "Let me look at the one she just bought."

I looked up and saw a Chinese aunty in her 40s. Maybe even a little older. And she's interested in the lingerie I just bought?

I mean, don't get me wrong. I understand that older couples too need to spice up the bedroom fun, and I totally respect that. In fact, I think it's a very healthy thing.

But, hot pink baby doll?!

I looked at Bee. He had just finished signing the credit card slip.

"Why? What's the problem?" He asked.

"I don't wanna wear the same lingerie as someone who's nearly my mum's age." I whispered.

"Aww don't worry, princess. You'll still look absolutely stunning in it." He laughed as if I was just acting silly.

"Okay, just so you know, the thought of an aunty wearing the same see-through lingerie as me, is not very sexy at all!" I snatched the shopping bag from him.

As we were leaving the boutique, the aunty was at the counter paying for her new lingerie. I wasn't interested in finding out whether or not she bought the matching pink G-string too. It's a little disturbing.

Until I can totally get the image of that aunty wearing the pink lingerie out of my head, it's safe to assume that I won't be wearing mine very often. :|

maybe Hilary was wearing that lingerie the night before Clinton ...

p/s: what a coincidence, it happened 8 years ago on 26 Jan, yesterday!

Daddy Nick said...

oops, sorry clicked on wrong buttons ...

Daddy Nick said...

*off topic* ... yay, Federer won! congratulations to u & me for betting everything on him ... ahhaha

MisSmall said...

Daddy Nick: Hilary Clinton? You're trying to say that the lingerie is a turn off? :/

Federer was ruthless. I was surprised that Kieffer didn't put up a better fight though.

I didn't bet. (To think that there's a TAB right at my doorstep) Did you? Or was it tangerines? :P

Daddy Nick said...

Princess Poo Poo, i was supporting your point that if an aunty (hilary) was in it, it probably would not have been very sexy (to clinton) ;)

yes, i was just betting my tangerines ... ;D

maybe Nadal would have put up a better fight ...

Kampungkai said...

hahahahah! damn funny wey. I guess it's really hard to forget the sight where she paid at the counter yea? Stil vivid in your mind now? Poorthing...

Nvm... valentine is not far away, go get a new 1!

LcF said...

Nicole Kidman is very nearly 40. Kim Basinger, Sharon Stone, Michelle Yeoh and a host of other stunning women are over 40. Are you suggesting they would not look as good as you in a hot pink baby doll?

It is not the age. It is the looks.

Wuching said...

maybe she bought it for her daughter & yes i agree with anonymous that lots of over 40 women r hot & look good in hot pink sexy lingeries..u'll probably would too when u hit 40! HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

Daddy Nick: Justine Henin-Hardenne is playing Mauresmo in a couple of hours time. Have you got your tangerines and CNY cookies ready yet? :P

Kampungkai: I won't be home for Valentine's Day either, so there really isn't much point. Unless of course, you're giving me a lift back in your fighter jet. Haha.

Icf: Makes a good Valentine's Day present huh? :)

Boss Stewie: Speaking from personal experience?

Anon: Let's face it, how many average 40 plus year old Malaysian housewives loook like Nicole Kidman, Kim Basinger, Sharon Stone, or Michelle Yeoh? If you're one of those lucky ones or know someone as lucky, I congratulate you/them. Personally, I seriously doubt that I can pull off a hot pink baby doll when I'm 45. But that's just me.

Wuching: Call me close minded, but I'd feel weird if my mum bought me a see-through lingerie. (That idea did cross my mind a bit though.) Happy CNY!

Happy CNY Princess Poo Poo.

Yea some 40 year-old women can look quite hot la. Look at Nicole Kidman....come to think of it..not many ya...But I guess you're right, they would still need to "spice" up their love life abit...otherwise husbands at their age would go curi makan...

Daddy Nick said...

ppp, 2 more hours to showdown. get ready your cookies too, mate. go, mauresmo!

Eternity said...

next time, browse, try, pay and don't pay attention to what's going on! don't look back! haha.

MisSmall said...

Chin Kian: That's a scary thought. How come you men don't worry about us 'curi makan' when you guys have a beer belly at 45? :/

Daddy Nick: Haha. I'm eating them.

Eternity: Yeah, what you don't know won't hurt you huh? :P

cK said...

hmm...maybe because women are more faithful compared to guys? I'm not married yet so I don't really know...

I think there are more cases of guys "curi makan" than girls.

I'm not saying that because I'm a guy. I really do see alot of ugly old men get to hang out with young chun chicks. So if a middle age women don't "keep up" then..........

Chin Kian: I guess there's some truth to what you've said. Sad, but true. :(
