Dressing smart can make it look like you have the right proportions even when its far from perfect. Try these tips from stylist Joshua Cheung:
- Don't Wear high-waisted trousers as they accentuate a short torso. Instead, go for hipster jeans or pants.
- Leave tees or casual shirts untucked. If you feel this looks sloppy, go for polot tees. Another chich alternative is the Nehru-collared, tunic-style shirt which is meant to be worn with the shirt tail falling below the hip bone. You can find these @ British India, but expect to pay about SGD$150 or more for one.
- Wear shirts and bottoms in the same colour if you're for example working in a formal environment which requires you to tuck your shirt in. So go all black, all navy, all grey or all brown. This helps maintain visual continuity from top to bottom, giving the illusion of the length.
In addition, Jacket also helps. The hem of your jacket should end at about mid-thigh. This will lead the eye downwards, keeping the focus away from your torso.
-How to deal with short torsos.
-How to look tall.
Hope you gained sth from this... ;)

Finally went to the Top One Ktv yesterday, which was a Friday nite... paid 28 bucks... with choice of 7 drinks - freeflow. And the above is something like an arcade station for u to choose ya songs and adjust ur voice key etc... overall i would say its not bad... jus that ours tend to hang abit here and there... which can be quite turn off but i guess other rooms might not be the same... :)

Yesterday one of my colleagues, though not so close, was SACKED! on the spot from work by his lady boss. Somehow or rather he did not accomplish the work that he was told to do for almost 1 wk... maybe he has his reasons. She told him that he's paid to work here and what is he doin for the past 1 wk... etc. He simply replied "You can Don't Pay me..." With that 5 words, she said "Ok Fine !" and she stamped off to inform the HR that he's off... we don't need him... Thats it! I was jus at the other side of the cubicle when this happened. It was rather shocking that my colleagues beside me din even utter a word until after everthing was over... This guy, Joe... from what i see... spoken to him a few times... he's a very friendly and cheerful person... and i find him pretty approachable... and i really feel sorry for him after that incident... i jus pondered why this thing would happen to him... maybe he has tolerated her for very long or simply she did not give him face or in other words didn't show respect for him in front of his colleagues, hence making him embarrassed. On the other hand, my the other colleague told me that he already has intention to resign or going to resign. But anyway, its over... jus hope that he would find a better job outside...
This afternoon just went for another audition... for KFC Tv Commercial... the place was very near my home... so it was nt hard for me to find the place... basically i was told to act out 2 roles... one holding the KFC chicken... the other holding a packeted food... and so on.. i would not reveal to much... as this might be against the rights. anyway, i wasn't very satisfied w my performance though i've tried my best to act it out... =) nevertheless.... i would not opt out the possibility that they would choose me. Maybe they like me ? who knows... haha... so jus bother too much and wait for the news naturally... =)
Alright... gtg.... tc n thks for reading! =)
