About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Dressed up and dressed down

Once too often I see this scene in Malaysia be it in Kuala Lumpur or Miri.

A guy and a girl go out dating, they may be just starting out, or boyfriend and girlfriend, or engaged or married.

They make reservations in a nice restaurant, they plan to have a nice romantic dinner, just the two of them.

The girls always look forward to this. They put on their best make-up, wear their best shoes and wear a nice dress. They are decked out.

And the guy . . . . guess what?

You know it, right?

Shorts, t-shirt, sandals, flip-flops or shoes without socks.

That is the idea of some guys taking their girls out for a date.

Okay, so I am generalising a little, but I see this way so very often that it is unbelievable.

Guys, common, dress up a little, put on an ironed shirt, jeans are fine but wear some shoes.

Geez, I tell you, when I went out dating (I have been out of the market for 15 years or so) but I used to dress up.

Take your girl to a nice place, please dress up, wear a nice shirt, do up your hair a little, wear nice shoes. . .

Take care and be well.
