The Fiction: Magical slippers. What everyone needs. You see, as a lazy person, I don’t like walking much, or driving, or even using the public transport! I once went out in a bazaar, and an old lady (with many cats purring around her, as I remember) was selling some slippers. Every pair of slipper had a different pattern. Some had water imprinted on them, others were painted with flame, pebbles, a boat even! What interested me in this particular pair of slippers was the Sakura tree print and the cycle parked underneath it. It felt like a scenery right out of a book. I immediately bought them, not knowing what more they held. Once at home, I tried them out. They had a rubbery feel. Then I walked to my kitchen to make a snack, when suddenly, I noticed my pace was a bit quicker than usual. Experimentinh more outof the slippers, I soon came to understand that these slippers made me “walk” faster. What I realized soon enough was the fact that these slippers were no ordinary slippers! The picture was not just for the visuals, but for the effect as well! I wonder what other slippers would be like ^_^
The Fact: These are actually just a pair of normal, everyday slippers (or flip-flops, if you must). I would have never bought them in my life (reasons? pink, floral print, and rubber slippers) – my mother got them for me. To be honest, I never noticed the bicycle pattern at first It was just a round wheel and some other pattern that I never bothered because of my prejudice (a bit like Elizabeth Bennet, eh?). Then, once I paired them – surrendered to fate actually, -(I can’t live without house shoes in my defense, and I really needed a pair since my feet felt like walking on bare ice- not that its bad, but like any other irony, I am a bit sensitive to cold) as in the picture above, my mind connected the pattern – it put two and two together, and, voila! A Bicycle! I was so happy, really, to see the cycle and under a tree and so neatly made! As if this image/scenery just came out of a book. I just ended up owning them ahahaha. As I have stated on my instagram account says, “These are not slippers, they are a work of Art.”

I apologize to Curtis, who hosts this amazing event, for not being able to post since my last entry (and that was my first one!) I hope I catch up this time – and for real! 🙂
