Barbie was a big part of my life then. A doll made in the form of an svelte-sexayyyy body with a gorgeous face (i sound like a hamsap ahpek) with an unlimited array of clothes to choose from, an a equally stunning Boyfriend to complement with. It's every little girl's Fantasy i tell you. " When I grow up I just wanna be just like Barbie!!" hahaha. Me and yuyu always played dress up with them, and got story plot summore. but normally 80% of the playing process goes into dressing her up. And the plot is usually going shopping or a date with Ken. hahaha. I still remember relentlessly buying bubble gum just to get the Barbie cards inside, equivalent to getting those pokemonwhatshit cards you know! and of course many a times poor barbie also had her head broken and forced back onto her neck and she ended up looking like no neck wtf.
My favourite barbie amongst so many was the 1996 collector's edition Nutcracker Barbie.
googled image lah. where got camera then
She had light honey blonde hair, sweet and soft features, pink lacy frilly tutu with ballet pumps. Nevertheless, i hated those un"mattell" like "fake" barbies, so racist lol. And got one barbie, even though she was from mattel also but at that time i thought she looked so weird. I was going for the All-american girl-next-door kinda Barbie then. And this one, she looked so..... cool..
COOL is Right! and she also looks OH SO CLASSY. why hadn't i realised this before? Ok, the thing is, this is one of the very first generations of barbie, with that sly side-glance look, called Barbie #1. Barbie has gone through an era of evolution and is Still going strong,and beautiful. Some exciting ones, for me, include, constantly having high-end designers dress for her. Carolina Herrera? Vera Wang? you know what i mean, splitting into different nationalities haha, having starred in various movies.. nah.. not the animation ones. ButTHIS . GENIOUS i tell u. oh yea. and also having broken up with Ken.. #(#$#*(&$
Haha. ok. my point is, i like the vintage looking kinda Barbie dolls. There's these new high end dolls called Silkstone barbies that feature high fashion clothing and that stealthy cool glance. What's not to love???
