my hair has hardly grown since i came to Canada???
funny lar. im serious. i think it's grown only... 3cm at the most.
in 2months. which is kinda slow for my hair. in Singapore, i could have a chin-length bob
at the start of january
, and have hair that's halfway down my back
. eh that's fast okay. that's like um... 20+cm (give and take) in 12months. pretty fast lor if u ask me. let's do some math now. let's make that 20+ a nice number, say 24. so 24cm divided by 12months...OEI. 2CM IN 1MONTH LEH. here?2CM IN 3MONTHS. do i see a discrepancy in the numbers here? i bet you do too.
well, my biology classmates came up with a logical explanation, and yeah it does make a whole lot of sense. the theory: it's crap dry
in Canada, which affects the growth of hair
. and thus affecting the speed/rate of growth
! tadah!!! yeah doesn't it make sense? in Singapore it was so freakin hot and humid, so everything was perfectly okay. but here it's the other way round, so my hair would be taking quite some time to adapt to the environment. yay i have an explanation now, so i can stop cursing and being pissed at my short hair :Dthe problem solver? EXTENSIONS. like duh, double duh, triple duh. but in Canada it seems pretty expensive, and i have to go like those huge-ass malls to get them, which are so damned far for someone who doesn't have a license (don't laugh la... please..?).
so yesterday night i was browsing through some random shopblogs that are based in Singapore (where else yo?), and i came across one that fulfilled my heart's desires
. go go, go have a look. and many of the things there are cheap too. note that i say cheap, not affordable. affordable means that (in my lingo) it fits exactly into your budget/estimation of how much something seems to cost. cheap means it's well, cheaper than what you budgeted/estimated.
