Lady in Red


Part of the daily musings in my life is the very long commute to and fro work, at least 1.5 hours each way. And what makes it bearable are the daily "characters" that I chance upon either at the bus stop, bus ride or the MRT.

One of them is the lady in the picture. Let me refer to her as "Lady in Red".



The first time I noticed this Lady was actually in the bus ride. Everytime I see her she would mostly, if not always, be eating. And if you don't know, eating or drinking is not allowed inside public transportation here in Singapore. So that's the reason why I noticed her in the first place.

But what really caught my attention was the fact that she ALWAYS wears RED. And when I say always, I mean EVERY SINGLE waking day. No Kidding.

PLUS, it's not like she wears different shades of red or different types of clothing in red - what really boogles me is she wears the EXACT same RED shirt and black pair of pants (including her either black or brown sandals and the same RED handbag) every single day.

AND WAIT, there's more! She always at least carries 2 bags with her.

Even Aileen, my cousin, also noticed her oddity. It's just very intriguing how she came about to do what she is doing. I mean that's a serious obsession for red. It's quite understandable if she has a fond liking for red, but this, I think, is slightly overboard almost bordering insanity.

Have you met her?

good point, how come i never thought of that haha, but it doesnt seem to look like a uniform coz it doesnt have a logo in front or any buttons, it just looks like a plain shirt... :)
